We are now back from our honeymoon and we had to write to say a massive thank you to you and the whole team who
made our wedding day such a huge success. We felt in very safe hands from when we first met you and the whole day
itself ran very smoothly - the team on the day were fabulous looking after us and our guests, the food was superb
(even though we were running late from the receiving line so huge compliments to the chefs) and the staff very
friendly. We loved staying the weekend and seeing everyone at breakfast the next morning. The Elvetham is a truly
stunning venue and we were so lucky to be able to have our wedding reception there. We have so many happy memories
of the day; thank you very much indeed.
Thank you also for the lovely framed picture which was a complete surprise to us. It will hang on our wall with pride
to remind us of the beautiful day.
Very best wishes
Stephanie and Edward
How are you? We are writing to say a big thank you to you for all your help with the run up to our wedding
on the 19th January. We had an absolutely fantastic wedding and this could only have been achieved through
all your help and that of everyone on the day. The staff at the Elvetham are simply amazing - we have never
known anything run so smoothly and have heard nothing but praise for the venue from our guests on the day.
All the little details really make an impression and it really seemed that nothing was too much trouble.
Please pass on our thanks to everyone that was there on the 19th from us and especially the Duty Manager
Andrew who dealt with the guest cancellations/table changes (due to the snow!) quickly and efficently and
helped make the whole day run like clockwork. He is a credit to your venue.
We dashed off on the Sunday to start our honeymoon in the sun, but I do hope that everything was collected
etc as should have been. If there's anything outstanding then please do let us know, but otherwise we just
want to say it was great working with you and we really apprecaited your professionalism throughout all the
We wish you all the best for the future.
Natalie and Peter Ryan
We just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you to yourself and all the staff at the Elvetham for
making Saturday just as wonderful and special as we hoped it would be. We cannot thank you enough - every
member of Elvetham staff made us feel special and no request was too much trouble. To us it felt like the
day ran perfectly and we can only imagine what effort went on "backstage" to make it go so well. Thank you
so much and please pass on thanks to all involved.
Zoe and Rob (now Mr and Mrs Young!!!)
It's been several months since we got married and it's been pretty hectic but I'm
sorry I haven't emailed sooner. I would like to Thank you for responding to countless
emails, measuring banisters, riggerously checking the food for my daughters peanut allergy,
letting me know everything would be fine and for giving us a fabulous wedding day!
The Elvetham provided the most stunning back drop to one of the most exciting and fun days
we are likely to have together. Our family and friends had a wonderful time and felt
really relaxed, everyone enjoyed themselves immensely and we didn't get to bed till 3am
which is certainly the sign of fun wedding. The food was just delicious as we're the
canapés, although some of our more naughty guests had a system so they could ambush the
poor waiters as they came out (but you can't blame them! The canapés were really tasty).
Our photographer has taken some lovely pictures so I have added the link and password below.
If you would like any images i can email them to you. I have to say I think our florist,
Harrison Green did a wonderful job, excellent to work with and I have a gorgeous material
mood board full of our ideas to keep as a memento of the wedding, I would recommend both
Adam Hillier Photography and Harrison & Green.
Thank you again; I can only imagine that working with Brides can be hard work so please be assured I really appreciated you.
Mr & Mrs Hannant
Lisa and I just wanted to email you to say thank you for all of your help preparing for what turned
out to be our dream day. We had an absolutely brilliant day and the staff at the venue were fantastic.
I would particularly like to thank Nick who was with us for the day, his constant attention and
assistance whenever needed made everything go without a hitch, even when I became too drunk to make
sense he somehow managed.
Again, thank you. We will remember our day forever.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping us plan what was an amazing wedding, and please also
pass this onto Andrew, Nick and the rest of the team. All the hotel staff were very efficient so
everything went very smoothly and meant we didn't have to worry throughout the whole day.
Thanks again and have a happy new year,
Sophie & Andy
We just wanted to say a great big thank you to you and the team The Elvetham. We had an amazing day and we haven't
stopped smiling yet. The day went so smoothly and everyone on your team was so helpful and genuine that it completely
made the day for us.
We cannot thank you enough and please can you pass on our thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make our day fantastic.
Niki and Stephen.
Rob and I would like to say a massive thank you to you and your amazing team of staff for giving us an absolutely amazing wedding day. It was perfect and even the sun turned out to join in the celebrations! Your organisation of our big day could not have been better; from the moment we booked our wedding until the moment we left on the morning after our wedding, we felt totally comfortable and that we were in more than capable hands.
A special thanks is due to the staff who worked on the day of the wedding. From the duty manager Nick who looked after us all day and attended to every possible need we could ever have, and ensured everything ran smoothly, to the reception staff, bar staff and waiters and waitresses, to young Will who followed myself and Rob around in the blazing hot sun with a tray of drinks!
The food was wonderful and we were really touched that the lady who had served us during our tasting session also served us during the wedding breakfast. Everyone loved the food and we had lovely comments from our guests that it was some of the best food served at a wedding that they had ever tasted.
Our guests were enthralled by the venue itself; we are still hearing comments about how stunning The Elvetham is! (And of course we couldn’t agree more!)
We look forward to visiting you again and thank you for giving us our perfect wedding day.
James and I wanted to send you a note following our wedding on 13 July 2012.
We wanted to thank everyone at The Elvetham for making us both feel so special and like VIPs for the day! We wanted to particularly thank Andrew who made the day run smoothly, the lovely lady who helped Katie to get mud off her dress(!) and Val whose good humour at the family dinner the night before our wedding carried through to our wedding day (she was a huge hit with our entire family). We really enjoyed every second of our day and our guests all commented on how beautiful the venue was, how delicious the food was and how effortlessly things seemed to happen.
Thanks to you too, Kacey for all your help in the run-up to our special day. It truly was the best day of our lives!
Katie & James
I don't really know where to start, but I just want to say the biggest thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone at The Elvetham Hotel in both the lead up to our wedding day and also the big day itself.
From when Nolan and I looked round in May and got shown around by Julie we have fallen in love with The Elvetham and as we left on Tuesday, it felt like we were leaving a second home. Everyone has been so friendly and helpful.
Nick on the day was FANTASTIC, he was always there when you needed him, always happy and smiley and so helpful you could ask him anything, especially when I needed the loo the minute I arrived!! He was calm when things over ran and made me and my husband (;)) feel very very special. The drinks of water before he announced us into the conservatory were very well received, it was just what we needed.I have gone down in history as being the only bride to throw her flowers so hard that I got them stuck on the staircase, but this again was no problem, Nick rescued them and we did a 'take 2'. I can not praise or thank him enough.
Nolan and I are already looking forward to the 2nd September 2013 when we come for our anniversary meal, but I'm sure we will come before then aswell.
Thank you once again for making the best day of our lives so special.
Lots of love,
On behalf of myself and my new husband!!!! We would like to say a huge thank you to yourself and all the staff at the Elvetham for making our wedding day so special. The day ran so smoothly and nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff at the hotel. Everyone said how polite, amenable and happy they were. They made me feel like my wedding was the most important day ever and helped with everything I needed. Can you please add extra thanks to the waiter who followed Alex and I around in the heat with our drinks all day! Also to Tom who was so calm and collected all day even with our vase smashing disaster!
We will be highly recommending your venue to everyone we know but I think your staff and venue have recommended themselves judging from the comments we have heard. We wish you all the best for future weddings at the Elvetham.
Lots of Love,
Emma & Alex
Carl and I wanted to thank you and the Elvetham team that helped make our Wedding day such a memorable occasion.
The staff could not have been more helpful in the run up to our special day on 1st June 2012, the managers on duty
the day before and on the day itself were amazing and nothing was too much trouble, Carl and I did not have to worry
about a thing!
The food was delicious, everybody enjoyed it all so compliments to the chefs.
I'm so pleased we decided to hold our Wedding at your venue, it was so special to us for many reasons. The photos are
absolutely amazing, the grounds were stunning, I noticed the attention to detail, even the gardener was out cutting the
grass in the morning.
If you could pass on the Thank you's to everyone involved we would be grateful.
Tori & Carl
We just wanted to say thanks so much for everything. Our wedding was amazing yesterday and special thanks to
Nick who was not only a great help all through the day but was very reassuring which is just what you need on
a day like that. Every time I turned around he was there to help with everything and anything.The other staff
were great, too. Always friendly, they really impressed our guests.
I wanted to thank you and double check we left nothing behind -like presents or cards as some guests said they
left them behind the reception desk.
Anyway thanks once again for a truly memorable day and I would have no hesitation to recommend the Elvetham for future functions.
Gemma and Mike
Just a quick email to let you know that Sunday 27th May 2012 was quite simply the best day of our lives.
The weather was glorious, venue magnificent, food and drink delicious and everything ran smoothly without a hitch.
Thank you so much for all your hard work leading up to the big day and please do extend our thanks and gratitude
to all the staff at The Elvetham, both front of house and behind the scenes for making it such an unforgettable
All our friends and family had a fantastic weekend and we are so thrilled we chose The Elvetham to celebrate our
perfect special day.
We will be in touch with photos in the future!
Alice and Christopher
My name is Mick Alexander and I am the proud father of Michelle and Dominic Hewett who were married at The Elvetham on Sunday 5th May 2012
May I personally thank and congratulate all the staff for all the hard work and effort they showed us on our special day !
I would also like to thank Emily Mortimer for all her help support and patience she gave us in preparation for our wedding !
The hotel staff on the day were fantastic, nothing was to much trouble and they showed us great respect !
finally may I thank the wedding coordinator who assisted us throughout the whole day and evening (sorry with all the guests names in my head I cannot remember his name)
He did a terrific job, not only making sure everything went as planned but also being there for any advice or help we needed, fantastic!
Many and I am sure most of our guests were very impressed with the Elvetham hotel and I hope this will reflect on further bookings for you in the future.
So to finish may I say Thank you to you all once again and wish you all every success for the future!
A very thankful father of the Bride
Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say a huge thank you to you and all
of the staff at The Elvetham for all your hard work and great service that we
had on the 28th December.
We had a truly amazing day and part of that was down to you and all of the staff.
The service was fantastic - all of our guests commented on how lovely the place
was and what great service they had received. Everything went smoothly on the
day and that was down to the great efforts that all of the staff put in, from setting
out the room to the food and drink we had!
Please could you pass this on to the staff - especially Andy and those who were in
charge on the day and were looking after us on the day.
We are waiting to receive our official photographs which am sure will have some
wonderful shots of the hotel.
Thank you again and best wishes,
Vicky and Elliott – Bride & Groom
I hope you are well.
We want to thank you properly for the all your help on the run up to our wedding. You
made organising the day so easy and were quick to think of things that we had not thought of.
It was a real pleasure to "work" with you.
Please pass our thanks on to everyone else at the Hotel that helped to make our day so wonderful.
The staff were so friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble - everyone made it so easy.
Nick was an absolute delight. I just wish I could remember the names of everyone else but it
was such a whirlwind of a day. However, I can say hand on heart that everything down to the
finest detail was thought of and still cannot get over the two members of your staff who were
tasked with following us round with a tray of drinks for the afternoon.
Thank you to everyone at the Elvetham again for making our Wedding day so special!
Rachel and Jason – Bride & Groom
I am the father of Mark Beebe who's wedding was held at you hotel on Saturday 30th
January. Everyone of the 100+ guests that attended the wedding where very impressed
with the venue, but the venue is only part of the day. You staff from top to bottom
are a credit to you and your organisation. The reception staff warm welcoming and
sincere. Not the plastic 'have a nice day' type. The bar and waiting staff were
attentive and friendly. The stars of the day, for me, were your Food and Beverage
Manager Andrew Shaw and Nick, who I believe was the duty manager for the afternoon
and evening. The Oak room for the ceremony and the library where the wedding breakfast
was held were immaculate. Andrew and Nick’s professionalism and attention to detail
in supervising the wedding breakfast and remainder of the day made the whole day
special. I received nothing but praise from our invited guests for the efficiency
of all your staff that added to their enjoyment of the occasion. For me the day
was summed up on Sunday, after breakfast, by the bride’s 82 year old grandmother
who said that the wedding was one of the most memorable days of her life.
Thank you and you staff for making the day so memorable of us all.
Father of a very happy bride!
I just wanted to thank all the Elvetham staff for making our day incredible. I cannot
express how helpful and accommodating they all were.
Chitra - Bride
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and all the staff involved In my daughters/son
in law wedding last Saturday. It truly was a memorable occasion and all the staff
were amazing and made the day go without a hitch. The wedding breakfast was fantastic
and all the waiting staff were so professional and helpful. Please tell and thank
everyone, all of our guests have commented on how good it was.
Thanks so much, a job done very well.
Stephen and Lynne Wylde - Father and Mother of the bride.
The last 6 months have gone in such a blur that I have only just realised I personally
haven't thanked you for all your work and effort in helping us have such a wonderful
day. I already had high expectations for the day, but we passed that by miles. Although
I suspect people are obliged to be nice, we had many genuine comments about how
wonderful the day had been, what a wonderful venue, and how wonderful the staff
of the hotel were. We couldn't have hoped for a better day, so thank you.
Thank you again, and hopefully we'll have time to come round and visit the hotel
Owen Gardner – Groom
Thank you to you and everyone involved in the organisation of Graham and Michelle's
wedding - it was perfect ! We were very impressed with the high standard of the
food, wine and the service that we received from all the staff at the Elvetham Hotel.
Thank you for making this such a very special day for us and even organising for
the sun to shine!
Jane and Julian Carter – bride & groom
We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, Andrew and all the staff at The
Elvetham for helping make our day go so well. We can honestly say it was the best
day of lives and we know a lot of that was down to the staff.
We couldn't have asked for a better day and everything was perfect, even the weather.
We keep looking back at photos and talking to people about the day and it brings
a smile to our faces.
We have nothing but complements from all our guests with regards to the venue, the
staff, the food, the service so again a big thank you to everyone involved. Thanks
again to everyone and we will definitely be back at some point even if its just
to have a drink in the bar and remember what was the best day of our lives.
Neil & Jo – Bride & groom
I wanted to say a massively belated thank you to you for helping us make our wedding
such a great day!!!!
Everyone was amazing and particularly if you could pass on a big thank you to Andrew
and Nathalie who did a great job on the day. Many thanks once again ;-)
Anya - Bride
Just a quick note to say thanks for all your (and all of your team's) help to make
our day so special. Also would like to thank Andrew who was outstanding on the day
and was able to adapt to all last minute requests.
Dip Saha – Groom
I still smile everyday about the wedding - it was just such a fantastic day and
I think much of that credit has to go to you both and the rest of the venue staff.
You made our day so very special, attending to our every need (and those we hadn't
thought of!). It is so very rare these days to get such amazing service - both Alex
and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew - as soon as we met I knew our wedding was in good hands. I am very particular
with details and to my amazement I have found someone who is better than me!! The
day went so smoothly and all the guests commented on how fantastic the venue and
the staff had been. I cant thank you enough..
I would recommend you to anyone (and already have been)
Caroline & Alex – Bride & Groom
I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of mum, Annika and myself, to you for all
your help in preparing the event and to the staff on the day who were really helpful
and friendly. Sunday went really well and Annika and William had a really enjoyable
day, as did all of our guests. Everyone loved the venue and the weather held out
so they were able to enjoy the grounds, too.
Our guests also loved the food and the mandap too (so you have a couple of great
suppliers for your list for any future Indian weddings). Anyway, thank you again
and I hope we have the occasion to book the Elvetham in the future, even if it's
just for a weekend away.
Anora – Sister of the Bride
I wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all of the team at the Elvetham.
Our sincerest thanks to you for all of the help you gave us planning the day and
making sure that everything was organised perfectly. And the same to Andrew and
his team for organising the day and running the whole thing perfectly - it was magnificently
done and Georgie and I had the most incredible day.
We'll be in touch in more detail on return from our honeymoon and just wanted to
drop you this quick note to let you know how happy we are with how it all went.
Adeep and Georgie – Bride & Groom
Gill and I wanted to express our thanks you and the entire Elvetham staff for making
Laura & Ryan’s wedding such a special day. Everything went according to plan and
all of our guests were impressed with both the venue and the quality of service.
We were particularly impressed with the courtesy of the staff.
The wedding breakfast was truly excellent especially given the number of guests
– our special thanks to the chef and the catering staff.
Peter & Gill Warner – Bride & Groom
We just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank the Elvetham very much for making
our wedding day on 29th May so special. The service we received from all staff at
the Elvetham was exceptional, but we would especially like to thank you, Andrew
and Nick for making the day so great. Everything from start to finish was excellent
and the day ran extremely smoothly without a hitch!
We were also very impressed with our suppliers on the day, who were all outstanding.
Many thanks again for making the day so fantastic!
Steve and Anita Collingwood – Bride & Groom
“What can I say.... I had an absolutely fantastic time and so did all of my
guests. The day went better than I could have imagined !!! It was truly magical!!!
Please can you pass on my Thanks to all your staff – especially Andrew and

Kristy - Bride
“Al and I would like to convey our sincere thanks for the most amazing wedding
at the Elvetham. It was an incredibly special day and your staff were all fantastic.
We can only compliment you on having such a customer focused team - they made us
feel very special. Please can you pass on our thanks to Brendan who was incredibly
professional and reassuring throughout the whole day! Everything went so smoothly
and we cannot thank you all enough!”
Al & Donna - Bride & Groom
“My husband and I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at The
Elvetham for making Leigh and Charlotte's wedding day so magical and special. You
all helped to make their special day absolutely stress free, you were there every
step of the way, advising and helping. A special thank you to Kathy (I hope
you managed to catch up on your sleep!), she is absolutely brilliant. All in all,
a magical (and with the mist - mystical) fantastic day, fairy tale setting, brilliant
staff. What more can we say. Once again, a big thank you to you all, we have some
wonderful memories to treasure.”
Linda & Chris - Bride’s Parents
“Just a quick note to say thank you for sorting out the meeting with Andrew-he's
been a star! Leanne and myself couldn't be happier with the way everything has been
so far and we look forward to the big day in November. Once again thank you and
please pass on my thanks to your wife for helping too.”
