Well, where to start. Myself and Jade got married yesterday at the mansion house, we then had our Reception at the Ridgeway Golf Club, we turned up to a beautifully dressed marquee, welcomed by Bill, Ryan and the team at the bar area where they gave us our welcome drinks, we where then taken to the marquee where we where greeted with amazing entertainment and unbelievable food, they catered for all including gluten free and vegetarians.. it was much more than we expected, our drinks where never empty, Ryan was always there giving us drinks and doing anything possible to help through the day, the speeches flowed lovely, Bill was having great fun and banter throughout all, the views and photos from the golf buggie (tour) are exceptional, loads of different varieties of settings, the evening party topped the whole lot. Bill and Ryan had everyone singing and dancing, the whole crowd was up.
Thank you so much all, for making our big day so amazing.

Well where do we start all week it was sunny until our wedding day and it absolutely poured down and we thought the day was ruined but little did we know even though it was pouring down Rebecca and I we're in for one of the most emotional amazing days and this was all thanks to Bill and his amazing team .
From the time we arrived at the Ridgeway we totally forgot it was the most wet miserable day the marque had been set up and when we seen it , it brought a tear to our eyes it was beautiful so thank you from the bottom of our hearts to the team who set this up Ryan,Jasmin,Charlotte,Meg and Ryan , all day long we were waited on hand and foot by Bill and Ryan nothing and I mean nothing was to much trouble for them this included all the staff they were all so pleasant and polite and the food was beautiful the day went without a hitch well apart from when I started blubbing seeing Rebecca coming down the isle with her dad.
The evening was more of the same Bill has a few tricks up his sleeve and is just the best host I guarantee you will have the best day and evening where else can you get married and all your guests and I mean all your guests are up on their seats singing and dancing thank you,thank you,thank you what a night.
This is the best part why would you go and pay silly money for a wedding some where else when you can get treated like a king and queen for the day by Bill and his team and the amazing marque , To you all at the ridgeway we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the most beautiful amazing day Bill you are just the most kind thoughtful guy you made us forget the poring rain and you made it just the most amazing sunny day inside THANK YOU and we couldn't say it to you enough from Brett and Rebecca.
Forgot to say just days before the wedding Bill went out of his way to paint the outside fence for Rebecca thanks Bill your a legend.

Wow what can we say? We had our wedding at the ridgeway yesterday and to say it was perfect is an understatement. The venue was incredible and bill and his team are nothing short of amazing. The marquee was dressed exactly how we wanted it to look and the food was outstanding. We had the most amazing day, we cannot thank bill and the team enough. As soon as our glasses were empty we were given another one and we were looked after all day. It was how your wedding day is meant to be..... magical and I would recommend the ridgeway to anyone for a wedding. Once again thank you so much Mr & Mrs James

My sister Gemma had her wedding here yesterday and I take my hats off to bill and his team.
Bill has looked after Gemma and jack since deciding to book their wedding with them. He couldn't do enough for anyone on the day either... even making sure I was ok after a slight bridesmaid dress malfunction.
The team even arranged for a seamstress to get to the venue to alter my dress while photos were being taken that I wasn't needed for.
The venue looked absolutely stunning... the ceremony was done outside, it was beautiful.
The food was top notch, it tasted lovely. It was all hot and fresh too.
The views from the marquee is stunning as well.
Their photographers was brilliant too.
I would recommend anyone to have their special day here because the team will make sure that your day is to your liking down to the minuet details.
Thanks to bill and the team xx

Bill, Anna, Ryan and the team at Ridgeway simply gave us the wedding of our dreams. From day 1, the level of care and attention to detail was absolutely exceptional. They were always happy to meet with us and answer our questions via phone, email or in person. Crucially, they were proactive in making sure that everything was just right on the day - and it really was. Bill is a natural showman, (you can tell that he loves the MC role!) and their hard work was evident throughout the day. Many of our guests have told us that ours has been the most enjoyable wedding they've ever been to, and this is down to the Ridgeway team. We look forward to visiting again regularly and having many more celebrations at Ridgeway Golf club. All our love and thanks.

Myself and my WIFE @[100006299531752:Stephanie Babbington] had our wedding at ridgeway yesterday. I can honestly say it was the best day of our lives. Nothing was too much trouble for Bill, Ryan, Mel and the girls and the day went absolutely perfectly.
The service outside was outstanding, the marquee was set up absolutely stunning and the food was incredible (and plenty of it).
The guests really had a cracking day and night and the way Bill got everyone into party mode was spot on.
Thanks guys. You made our day that extra bit special and personal and I can't recommend ridgeway enough.
If I could rate more than 5 stars I genuinely would! SPOT ON!!!!

We had our wedding here yesterday and it was absolutely fab! The rain poured and poured and we didnt get out in the golf buggies but that did not stop bill putting everything into making our day brilliant. I was allowed to set the marquee myself and anything i wanted (within reason!) Was ok! The chair covers and table linen were crisp white!!
I have to say all staff was brilliant but Ryan is the only name i remember! He was very good with entertainment alongside bill!
Bill always checked with me throughout that i was ok and kept me with a drink in my hand �
I am so glad we chose Ridgeway and wouldnt change a thing!! Well worth spending the money on your big day!
From someone who hates being centre of attention, Bill made it a breeze!!

I attended Catrin and Shaun's wedding here last night and I have to say it's the best wedding I've been to in a very long time. Bill and the entertainment was fantastic. He knew exactly how to get everyone involved and as a result the atmosphere was amazing and everyone looked like they were having a blast. He was very helpful and attentive and even ensured my gluten free friend had plenty of food during the evening buffet.

We recently had our wedding at Ridgeway Golf Club, and all i can say is what an amazing venue it was!.
The Marquee looked out of this world thanks to Bill, Gareth and the team. You could see that they really pay attention to detail and provide you with everything you can dream of.
Firstly just want to say that Gareth was superb and put us at ease every step of the way. He organises everything and runs the day like clockwork. From the arrival to the end of the night. Couldn't fault a thing!
The food we had was amazing and plentiful for our guests in the day and the buffet was outstanding with a great variety of food!
Bill hosted our evening and all i can say was how great he was at getting everyone involved and up dancing! Really made our night special and our guests are still raving about him now!!
At Ridgeway Golf club you are in the best hands possible from start to finish with world class staff and great food.
Its just a shame the night and our time with them had to end
Thank you again Bill and Gareth you made the whole day perfect.

We had our wedding reception at Ridgeway Golf Club on 27th May and what a venue it turned out to be – outstanding!
The furnishings and marquee were set up beautifully. Looking back at pictures taken that day within the marquee reveals a ‘top class’ looking venue, they really do put the time and effort in to provide high class venue for their clients.
We must highlight firstly the service provided by Gareth. It was unbelievable. He not only orchestrated the proceedings fluently throughout the day but also, not known to us before the event, become our personal aid to ensure that we wanted for nothing. He had us in his sight at all times to make sure we had a day to remember.
We were initially disappointed to hear that we had to leave the marquee for the club house at 6pm until 8pm so that the tables could be set for the evening. This disappointment was short lived and the move was actually a blessing.
We had a small band and the club house created a great atmosphere and drew everybody together with a party spirit. It also breaks the day’s events up nicely in readiness for the night’s proceedings in the marquee.
We opted for the ‘Wedding Breakfast’ meal option. The food was excellent. Many guests were complimenting the quality of the food. The roast beef dinner was very tasty and well cooked.
All members of staff from bar staff to waiter staff were very professional but also very polite. There was always a lovely atmosphere there.
In summary, I cannot speak highly enough of this venue and all the people from Gareth to all the staff members who make a huge effort to make this one of the best days of your life. Don’t think twice about booking this venue, you will not be disappointed.
Huge thank you for making it a Special day for us,
Andrew and Tracey (Mr & Mrs Atwood :-)).

We celebrated our wedding with a ceilidh at Ridgeway golf course and it was fantastic.
The venue itself is beautiful overlooking the valley, the marquee was plenty big enough for our 90 guests and a full length floor for the ceilidh dances (thank you pluck and squeeze for the music).
The organisers Bill and Gareth were fantastic, they were very accommodating, they listened to the things we wanted and went out of their way to make sure we got it. Their flexibility and passion definitely set them apart from other venues we visited.
I giant recommend them enough.

From first booking the venue, Bill and Gareth made us feel confident that they would make our wedding day everything we wanted; they exceeded our expectations.
The venue looked first class, the food was delicious. This sentiment was echoed by our family and friends who attended. Bill, Gareth and their staff were very attentive, not only throughout booking and planning stages, but even more so on the day itself. It was lovely to receive a phone call from Gareth the next day, to make sure we had had a great time.
Bill & Gareth provided loads of tips and advice on planning, music choices for entrance and first dance, discussing details such as the order of speeches. Bill even arranged/provided items such as (photo booth, Sweet cart, Light curtain, Post box and a stunning limousine (chauffeur driven by Bill himself), master of service and DJ services again delivered by Bill and Gareth with their usual professionalism, unlimited energy and fun.
The day was amazing, and the evening so much fun with more than a few hilarious audience participation bits which will have us laughing and re-telling the stories for years to come. Even though it was our wedding – it was probably the best party I have ever been to.
I can recommend ‘The Marquee at Ridgeway’ for your wedding with the assurance that you will have the best day of your life.
Many thanks again to Bill and Gareth for making our wedding day one that ourselves, friends and family will remember with fondness.

It was important for us to find a wedding venue that gave us the freedom to make it our own. Ridgeway were willing to provide us with a blank canvas in a great South Wales location. All 70 of our guests travelled from England and stayed in various Caerphilly hotels. The whole team at Ridgeway have a very warm approach and the commitment to their social enterprise was evident right from our initial enquiry and it remained consistent in the 9 months leading up to our mid-October wedding date. We were one of the first to book a wedding at Ridgeway and we loved visiting regularly to catch up on their progress. We felt part of their journey and it's unusual for a wedding venue to operate with such transparency.
It's obvious how proud Bill and Gareth are of the venue. It's a beautiful place for a wedding and provided the wow-factor we always dreamed of for our big day. The marquee is freshly decorated with a well-balanced colour scheme throughout, which was complimentary to our theme. We had a celebrant ceremony as well as the reception in the marquee and both layouts looked stunning, creating the right first impression for our guests. The chandeliers are a really nice touch. The surroundings are idyllic for formal and informal photos and we were lucky to have blue skies and relatively warm weather for Autumn. It was great fun driving golf buggies around the course to the most suitable photo spots.
We wanted to use all the available facilities, which put pressure on Bill and Gareth to accommodate some rather unusual requests. We even had a driving range competition! Their flexibility is what made Ridgeway stand-out from the beginning and we met several times to discuss our ideas. We were always made to feel welcome each time we visited. They have first-hand knowledge and experience in a wide range of areas, which gave us confidence in their abilities from day one. It is refreshing to work with a venue wanting to say "yes" to everything (within reason!) while steering us in the right direction when an idea might affect a smooth-running day, which had a packed itinerary from start-to-finish.
Timescales for completion of improvements to facilities (such as new toilets and wooden doors along the width of the marquee) were consistently met and our expectations often exceeded. The outside areas were completed in-time to an exceptionally high standard. Our wedding was on a Sunday and so we made full-use of the clubhouse from 6pm, where the bar was situated as well as a free-to-play poker table available later in the evening. It also proved to be the ideal place for an Irish band to play a 1-hour set, which gave Ridgeway plenty of time to turn the marquee around for the disco.
Our guests were very complimentary about speed of service at the bar, particularly when the clubhouse was fully occupied.
The food was excellent and took us by surprise as we hadn't sampled anything previously. We had no idea how good it would be and our guests were blown away by the quality and size of portions. We had leek and potato soup for starter, roast beef or nut roast for mains, and home-made apple pie for dessert. The staff were very attentive to every table and ensured drinks were always in constant supply from the bar. The caterers were clearly experienced in handling events for 70+ guests on a regular basis. The entire service was faultless and effortless, and the timing between courses was spot-on. The varied buffet didn't disappoint either and there was plenty of food available for everyone to enjoy later.
The evening entertainment included a feel-good disco that suited a large mixed-age group perfectly. The dancing didn’t stop all night and our photographer stayed for the duration to capture brilliant moments on camera that we will treasure for a lifetime. The majority of our guests stayed until the end and no-one wanted the party to finish. Bill and Gareth must have been exhausted but showed no sign of letting their hosting masks slip, fully committed to ensuring we were in good spirits until the very last taxi had left. Our top table will be returning to Ridgeway for a Christmas Party in 2017 to mark our first anniversary and we can't wait to re-live those memories on the marquee's dance floor!

"Had my wedding reception here on Saturday (3rd December) and what can I say? Bill and Gareth were fantastic, we only had 12 weeks to plan our wedding and the room was fantastic, everything Catherine and myself dreamt of! The detail in everything was perfect, we really couldn't of asked for better!
Bill and Gareth work very well together, they are like a double act and the entertainment in the evening was superb! We have had many phone calls telling us how much our guests enjoyed the wedding! If we could give ridgeway more than 5 stars we would! We would highly recommend this venue for a wedding, it's easy on the pocket and beautiful to look at, our pictures are amazing it was like a fairy tale wedding and I'm glad Cath had everything she wanted without breaking the bank! Thank you so much to all the staff at ridgeway for making our day perfect."

We had our wedding on Saturday 26th November. Bill and Gareth were absolutely amazing throughout. I highly recommend trusting Bill with your special day.
We started at 2PM and had around 80 people at 5PM in the bar to watch the Welsh rugby game.
We then moved back to the marquee for the evening entertainment. The food was fantastic, the bar was well stocked and everything went to plan. I won't spoil the surprise but trust bill and Gareth to do a great job of the entertainment.
Without exception all of our guests have told us they have had an absolute amazing evening and that's thanks to bill and Gareth's hard work.
It's easy to comment on food, music and location but the real deciding factor should be trust in the organisers to do an amazing job. Bill and Gareth can be trusted to deliver what they say and more. They clearly love what they do and really care that everyone has a great time. Thanks from us all!!
Ps: ask bill to recommend our photographer (who bill knows) because they work really well together.

Words do not explain how amazing our day was yesterday thanks to Ridgeway.
Bill and Gareth are absolute true gents, they could not do enough for us, all our wedding guests had nothing but praise for them and their team
I can honestly say that these guys made our reception and evening do, they had everyone involved and ensured we had a fab time
The food was lovely, not one complaint.
The venue was stunning and the team were lovely.
We could not believe the price! A few people asked us how much we paid as they fell in love with the venue and the team, when I asked them to guess they were saying from 10-15 thousand!! They could not believe it when we told them the deal we had
If you want the wedding of your dreams in a stunning venue with wonderful people looking after you book your wedding at ridgeway
Gareth and Bill you are now friends for life xxx
Thank you so much
Love Maria and Steven Medcalf xxx

Wow, what can we say.. A special day turned into a very special day.
The only thing that was out of Bill and Gareth's control was the weather, but they managed to persuade that to be special too.
We booked in February when the marquee had lots of 'work in progress'.
Our guests were wowed by the venue.
If we were to make any criticism it's only this..... Not enough Rammstein played, but we will forgive you Bill.

Me and my husband had our wedding here on the 16th of september and it was everything i could have hoped for!
We were originally looking to get married in 2017 until we visited the golf club and had a tour of the marquee and a chat with Gareth and bill and knew this was the right venue for us and the price was amazing.Leading up to our wedding the contact with Bill and Gareth really put my mind at ease and we were invited back however many times we would have liked, both really friendly and helpful even with all of my fussy requests ha!
The food was lovely and the buffet in the evening was amazing and lots of it! more than any other venue had to offer!Our day was absolutely amazing i would do it exactly the same all over again if i could and would like to say a BIG thank you to
Gareth, Bill and all of the team at ridgeway for making our special day one we will remember forever.

Me and my husband had our wedding reception at the ridgeway on Saturday 20th August and what can I say! It was first class. Bill and Gareth were absolutely amazing- so helpful and friendly and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure they made our day was as special as it could be. We actually only booked the wedding 11 weeks ago due to taking advantage of an amazing deal and we could not have organised it all without them. We used their bows and table decorations which helped with cost and he amount we had to organise and it looked absolutely beautiful! Just to break it down:
Before the wedding- Bill was always happy to meet or for us to ring him. He told us what he needed from us and when which really helped as this was the first time organising a wedding for both of us.
He took us out on the golf buggies to see the course and even came up on his day off to take us out again with our photographer so we could find some good spots.
The night before Gareth sent me a picture of the marquee set up so I didn't stress at all in the morning. The pair are a bit of a double act and they always made us smile, laugh and feel very welcome.
The day- the weather was shocking but they both made the day extremely special. Bill paid for all of our drinks and gave us first class service! They also made sure my mother (who is in a wheelchair) was well looked after. They did everything we asked them to do and more! The bar staff were great and the food was amazing! The marque looked amazing and very pretty both in the day and night. It was like being in a fairy tale!
Bill also said because we couldn't go out in the buggies (due to gale force winds and the heavens opening) that we could come up again and take pictures on a sunnier day- which was amazing and we are looking forward to doing so! He offered to take myself, my husband and two other guests in his car to the hotel (making two trips) at 1 in the morning!
They were absolutely fab! Bill got everyone up dancing and really got the party started which was great!
If I had £20,000 spare to spend on a wedding and could choose from a multitude of venues... I would still go with the ridgeway! It might be cheaper than other places but that doesn't impact on anyway to the service you get or the quality of the venue or food.
We can't thank you enough for all that you did for us and would highly recommend you to anyone who is organising a wedding!

Our daughter and her fiancé were married on 27th August and we had the reception at Ridgeway Golf Club. We would like to thank Bill and the team for all their hard work in making the day such a huge success and the attention to detail to make the most of the wedding marquee. The whole day went without a hitch with Bills organisation. All the guests agreed that it was a perfect venue for such a special occasion. We wish the Ridgeway all the success in the future.
Best wishes, Lindsey and Chris Davies.
Bill what can i say the location is beautiful, buffet was at a very high standard, the marquee was warm and inviting and was dressed for a fairy tale wedding. i can't thank you enough for donating your service free of charge to seren and Paul Williams. when we contacted you and asked you if you had availability for the following week and you said the venue was available and that you would do venue and catering for free for Paul who is terminally ill and only has weeks to live we couldn't believe how humble you were we burst into tears.
how you pulled this off for us at such short notice i don't know.
when i looked at how much you charge normally i thought a zero had been left out of the price. you are making brides and grooms weddings come true, people can actually afford to get married at the prices you charge.Its nice to know just because the word wedding is being used you haven't doubled your price. If you are thinking of booking your wedding here don't think twice the date you want wont be around long. Bill can also arrange all the extras for you from chocolate fountain, chocolate shawarma. a show stopping led cake stand, photo booth, ice cream stand, candy floss, sweet cart, pop corn nachos as he has reliable suppliers who he works with and to end the night he can arrange fantastic laser show. you can even release some beautiful doves what ever you want bill will be able to assist you. i would also you try their afternoon tea it is absolutely gorgeous and under £8 per head. Once again thank you Bill and team.x
Louise Walpole We are eternally grateful to you for what you're doing.
I've just watched your wedding video and my husband Samuel and I both said that we wish you were around when we got married. We paid thousands more and didn't get half of what we wanted.
Excellent value for money!
See you on the first!
Thank you for considering the Marquee at Ridgeway for your Function
