About Jodie & Kieron

The beautiful Jodie met the wonderful Kieron on her birthday night out 5 years ago and got engaged four years later.

For this lovely couple The Orchard was love at first sight – they only viewed one venue and fell in love with us straight away; when you know, you know! It only took one week after they got engaged to book their special day for the following year.

The lead up!

We were honoured that Jodie and Kieron picked The Orchard to host their wedding, Jodie herself was a Senior Event Coordinator at another venue so the standards were high!

This lovely couple booked The Orchard because of the special, warm and welcoming feeling they got as soon as they walked in. As an exclusive use venue, they really loved all the different areas around the venue for their guests to use throughout the day.

They married on the Saturday of Easter weekend April 2023 & the sun shone beautifully for their wedding day.

The big day!

Jodie and Kieron had some amazing touches on their day, with live music for their ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast by Dave Brazier (Saxophonist). They also had marryoke by TDH Media – which is so much fun!

The food for their day was done in-house, the same as all our weddings! The food was prepared lovingly and was absolutely delicious on the day. The couple opted for a choice menu which is great if you want to give your guests some freedom!

They had Antipasti and Prawn Cocktail as a starter with the very popular choices of Chicken supreme and Lamp rump for their mains! The desserts were perfect for the hot weather as they chose Raspberry and white chocolate bread and butter pudding as well as a light Eton mess!

Tanith & the Orchard team are simply unbeaten at what they do. They made planning our wedding so easy from the first day we visited until the moment we left at the end of our wedding. We have received so many messages about how incredible the food was on the day too. The staff made us feel so welcome and made everything run so seamlessly on the day, I honestly cant recommend The Orchard enough!
