We had our wedding here and it was the best decision I've ever made! Originally, we were supposed to have the wedding at another venue nearby, so I was happy to find the English Inn to host all of my guests from China, Australia, Canada, and some from the US. I booked 10 rooms after seeing pictures online, but decided I wanted to check the place out before I decided who would stay in which room. The receptionist was nice enough to let me look at all the rooms and grounds. Thank god I did, because as soon as I saw the place, I instantly knew this was the place I wanted to get married. I began talking with the wedding planner, Adriana, about possibly doing the wedding there instead. After learning the other venue I had booked wasn't going to have AC, the decision was final! And seriously, it was amazing. Adriana was SO helpful. Any questions I had, she was quick to answer with very helpful answers. Also, having the Bridal Party, as well as some close family and friends, staying with us at the Inn made it so easy and relaxing. And OH MY GOD, breakfast was amazing!! They were quick to refill drinks, which were high quality. The food was so flavorful, and clearly made with good ingredients.
The rooms were amazing as well! Very comfortable beds, quaint surroundings, and amazing views of the gardens and rolling hills in the area! My guests really enjoyed their stay!
Now to talk about the wedding itself!
We had the ceremony down at the Pergola, and it was so beautiful. The gardens, plus the Grand River running behind us made it picture perfect! We didn't have to decorate it whatsoever. It truly didn't need it. The only thing I would change is the seats. They were to close to the back, where I was supposed to enter, which caused my father and I to be on two separate levels, as there is an elevated area. We weren't able to walk side by side. But it was fine. We're easy going.
After the ceremony, we had a cocktail hour and got our guests situated in the Medovue Hall, which was gorgeous. They have chandeliers and windows make it feel like you're in a castle or something. It feels very elegant. Waitstaff was all very friendly and officiant. The food was delicious!! We had ordered the Beef and Chicken combo for everyone, which came with more than enough food! And both beef and chicken were moist, juicy, and very tasty! Many of my guests told me how much they enjoyed the beef! I also had one vegan and one vegetarian, who enjoyed their meals as well. The hall was nicely spaced out, and we had a great time dancing! It was such a wonderful and magical day! I can't thank Adriana and the staff enough for making our day so wonderful! It was better than I had ever imagined!

- Occasionally, when you may least expect it, you come across a spot in the world where time seems to have stood still, where graciousness of spirit and personal attention to detail still thrive, where the hustle and bustle of the modern world are shut and the lingering taste of a good Burgundy on your palate is all that matters. The English Inn is just such a place. ... more less
