Wedding Testimonials

Hi Kacey,

We just wanted to write and say thank you so very much to you, Emily, Andy, Martha, Val, Gemma and Grant and that is just to mention the few that we got to know by name. Our thanks is extended to everyone from reception (especially the lovely lady who was so calming early on in the morning of my wedding and for stashing my ice pack away in the freezer especially as it was her first week working there), waiters and waitresses, bar staff, chefs (who excelled themselves with the food it was just as we asked) all the cleaning staff, the gardeners, everyone I didn't get to see back stage and just about anyone who may have been just the tiniest bit involved with the management, arrangement and planning of our wedding which we happily stretched out for almost a full three days. We truly had the most wonderful day, the venue was perfection, looked immaculate, all our guests were enchanted with the venue and their rooms, and the extremely capable staff and all the personal touches we requested were done without question, or prompting. Grant did such an amazing job of making sure that we kept almost on track on the day and was incredible at making sure the right things happened at the right time.

Your preferred providers are clearly a very well-rehearsed collective and the ones I was lucky enough to use on the day were wonderful. Miriam cannot be applauded loudly enough for just getting the job done beautifully on the day, despite the chaos around her and the re-do of my chief and only adult bridesmaids hair, Jill's cake was stupendous, both in appearance and more than lived up to expectations on taste, and Firebird, as you know were so quick and efficient when I made the last minute decision to fulfil Lee's Saturday Night Fever dance floor wish. Ian and Wayne from Peartree Pictures were so tolerant and good humoured with their very tough job on the day and we can't wait to see the photos when they're ready. They did everything without fuss, rush and all with such fun and enjoyment for us and I hope a little for them, the four of us certainly had a chuckle or two throughout the day.

The civil ceremony was also to be commended, I feared it may be a little flat but everyone commented on how lovely, professional yet entertaining the service was and I loved every minute of it. You are fortunate to have those lovely ladies as your local registrars.

Your venue really lends itself to weddings and your staff are just wonderful, from top to bottom and everyone seems to really love where they work and what they do. We can't recommend your venue highly enough for professionalism, service, quality and patience, especially with all our last minute 'minor' changes.

Thank you, thank you, thank you and just because you all deserve it, thank you again.

With our kindest regards and best wishes for the future to you all and your venue. We hope your wedding brings you all you wish for and more.

Lee and Sarah

Hi Kacey,

We are just back from honeymoon and I had to email you to say thank you so much to you and also to the staff on the day, who made our wedding so special (understatement!). Everything went perfectly and I couldn't have wished for a better day! Seeing you on the day was really special!

Lots of love and best wishes,


I am writing to thank all the staff at the Elvetham for making Elizabeth and Barnaby's wedding perfect. Kacey had guided and supported Elizabeth throughout and on the day Andrew was there and anticipated every whim or necessity.

We were so fortunate that the wedding service could be outside and it was beautiful and I hope other people will see the potential of the 'summer house’.

Thank you for your thoughtfulness, the iced water for the guests, the fact that at the end of each shift the staff member made a point of coming to let is know and who was then taking over.

Thank you to Eric who kept us all on track.

The wedding was relaxed and enjoyed by everyone made possible by your efficient and friendly staff who made sure it ran smoothly.

Elizabeth and Barnaby are still away but I am sure once back will send some photos of the wedding service in the rose garden.

Adrian and Catharine Kay

Dear Kacey and Team,

Firstly, I apologise for this taking so long to be sent, I thought it had gone straight after the wedding but it was still sitting in my ‘drafts’ until this evening when I had a clear out.

This is just a note to thank you all for your amazing efforts in the lead up to and including our wedding day on 22nd March. We had the most amazing time from start to finish and would like to say a special thanks to yourself and Andrew for sorting everything behind the scenes, Nick who directed us and our rabble extremely well throughout the course of the day and Lottie for plying me with hot chocolate in a bid to thaw me out during the photos.

The venue was perfect and we had many a compliment on how good the food was at the wedding breakfast. We really couldn’t have asked for more. A stunning location and slick team running the show = a day to remember!

Thank you and best wishes

Jane and Paul Bolam

Hi Kacey,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your colleagues for all your help on Friday!!! Danny and I had a great time and everything ran so smoothly which was amazing.

All our guests had a wonderful time too and loved the venue! It was really a very memorable night.

Thank you again!

Danny and Yana

Hi Kacey,

Yes please let all the staff involved know how much we appreciated them! And yes you can use my comments in a testimonial!
Can't stop saying thank you! Best day of our lives!

Caroline and Alan xx


A huge thank you so very much for all your support and help to make Nikki & Will's wedding on Saturday an amazing and wonderful success. I was so pleased to be working such professional colleagues and the staff who worked with us were the best I've come across in a long time.
My sincerest thanks again to you all.

Kind regards

Hi Kacey and Andrew,

Wow what an amazing day, A massive Thank you for all your help, Kacey for arranging everything emails flying back and forth and Andrew you were amazing on the day made the day go just so brilliantly.

Myself and Nick and All my friends and family had the best time and all said about what an amazing venue/hotel and staff. The waitresses and waiters,bar staff and everyone were just brill.

We had the most incredible day and as cheesy as it sound it really was the best day of my life and I just wanted to thank you so much for making it all happen so smoothly.

Love Nina and Nick Edwards.

Hi Kacey,

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and all the staff at The Elvetham for making our day so special. We were truly looked after from start to finish. We know great service can only be achieved with a great team, and you certainly have that. We were made to feel so special, everything was perfect, and so well organised. Andrew & Sam made sure we had everything we needed and nothing was to much trouble, Aaron made sure he was available for us during the ceremony to work the sound system, and Val kept us laughing during our meal, I can't name everybody, but everyone involved in our day went that extra mile to make sure we had a day to remember. Please thank everyone personally for us.

The Elvetham has a warmth that is matched by all of the staff that work there, the attention to detail and personal attentiveness is second to none. We have already decided that we would like to return on our first anniversary to have a meal and stay.

Thank you again for everything, it really was the best day of our lives.

Kindest Regards,
Craig & Louise Gibbs

Hello Kacey,

I just want to say the BIGGEST thank you ever! I could not have asked for a more perfect day.

If it wasn't for all your help I would not have had everything ready on the day. You were so helpful and understanding with all the problems we had on the run up.

I also want to say a massive thank you to Nick for the actual day. He went above and beyond to help us out to relax and enjoy our day! If it wasn't for him we would have had a very grumpy baby as we lost her dummy and he went and got one for her. He had an amazing presence with the guests and led us all through the day with ease. Absolutely fantastic!

The rest of the staff on the day were friendly and helpful and very polite.

I honesty could not have asked for more from you all! Such an amazing team and I will be recommending to anyone who asks how it went. The food was amazing - compliments to the chef. 15 out of 10 for the wedding team and 15 out of 10 for the whole experience!!

Thank you again!

Kindest Regards,
Samantha and Jacob

Hi Kacey

I just wanted to drop you a mail to say thank you so much for everything you did for our wedding and hopefully you can pass on our thanks to all the staff who really helped to make our day amazing.

Andrew (or maybe his name is Alan - I kept calling him different names!) was great and I know he was working hard in the background to make sure that everything was running perfectly - he was even kind enough to show me the preparations that had been done for the Library when he found me wandering around at 5am in the morning! Nick was fantastic and again kept everything flowing so well and was reassuring. The bar & waiting staff were amazing, always there when we needed them yet not in the way and keeping the sweetie table topped up. Everyone commented on how amazing the Elvetham is and what a lovely touch it was to receive a print of the Elvetham. Special thanks to whoever put the 'road sign' up as well as my welsh flag too. The meal was fantastic as were the canapés and even the photographers commented on how great their meal was so special thanks to the chef and kitchen staff too. We can't think of a single thing that we would have asked to be done differently and that speaks volumes as I am very fussy and really keen on attention to detail.

All the best
Adele & Ian

Dear Emily,

We are back from honeymoon now and wanted to send you a note with a big thanks to you and the team at the Elvetham.

Dilma and I had a fantastic day and everything ran smoother than smooth. Nick who looked after us on the day did a fabulous job and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Elvetham to couples looking for a venue.

Once again

Very many thanks
Andy & Dilma

Hi Emily

Hope you are well.

I wanted to thank you again for all the help and support that you gave myself and Stuart with planning our Wedding at the Elvetham Hotel.

You and all the staff were lovely. Please can you pass my thanks on to Andrew and the other Manager (apologies I have forgotten his name) who made sure that everything went according to plan on the day and that we were looked after well - they were absolutely brilliant.

Stuart and I had a fabulous Wedding day, it was absolutely perfect and we will remember it for the rest of our lives.

We also had some exciting news, one of our pics got published in this weeks edition of 'Hello Magazine' ...... Fame at last ; o )

Many thanks, Rachel x

Hi Kacey,

Thank you for your lovely comments! We do have lots and lots of comments!

Before the wedding

We dealt with Kacey Brooks for the planning of our wedding. Kacey was fantastic through all aspects of the process. We planned our wedding from a long way away (Australia), which meant that we couldn't visit the venue often or make phone calls - Kacey was wonderful at answering questions by email, sending documents across and taking photos of things we couldn't see in person. What could have been stressful was wonderfully stress free. On the occasions we were able to come into The Elvetham, Kacey made us feel so welcome and that our wedding was just as important as any other.

The Venue

The Elvetham is a beautiful venue, from when you drive up the long drive with the lovely mature trees and extensive grounds, turning the corner and seeing the beautiful exterior, and then inside. While the building looks big from the outside, the interior is broken up into intimate spaces and rooms, giving a warm, friendly feel. In particular we loved the beautiful painted ceilings, fireplaces and staircase with its stained glass windows. We had so many compliments throughout the day about what a magical and unique venue it was. We can't wait to come back and visit again!

The day

On the day itself we were looked after by Sam, the duty manager and Helen, who was always on hand with a glass of champagne (very welcome!). Sam made sure that everything ran smoothly and according to time while allowing us to just enjoy everything and chat to our guests. Nothing was too much trouble and everything went better than we had hoped.


The food at our wedding breakfast was delicious. Many people told us that the food was of an exceptionally high quality and much more than just standard wedding fayre. After having done a menu tasting and making comments on minor changes we would like, these were incorporated into the final meal, which we thought was lovely, and tailor made. We had a few guests with specific food intolerances/requests, and these were all incorporated effortlessly.

Sleeping accommodation

We loved our overnight accommodation. The room was big and luxurious, with a huge comfortable bed and a rain shower above a freestanding bath. We also loved our big balcony looking across the grounds and the church.

Cheryl and Neil Williamson

Hi Kacey

Its been a while since our wedding and I apologise for not writing sooner.

We both wanted to let you know how amazing the whole wedding was and how much we and our guests enjoyed it.

From the first time we contacted you we were thrilled and delighted with your kind and professional attitude in making our big day as special and memorable as it was.

Every detail was dealt with so well, by you and your team, in such a discreet and professional way the wedding was beyond our expectations! Thank you so much for making our wedding amazing!

Alex & Tessa (and Evie)

Dear Kacey.

What can I say.

The w/end was truly amazing and it was all so overwhelming for us four. So much emotion and love buzzing around the place. We have had nothing but incredible amazing comments about the venue,the staff the organisation of everything, the way it was so chilled and relaxed,it was and still is so overwhelming for the four of us.

Thank you so much for your invaluable help in putting it all together. Pass on our extreme thanks to all the staff who were just so much a part of it all and were there when we needed them. It was a magical experience, Arran was just great ,so helpful... as were all the management... Words are not enough.

We plan to come stay over a w/end just to try and relive the magical experience of the Elvetham...

Thank you so much,
With our Love.
Jackie, Steve and Joao and myself...

Hello Kacey

We just wanted to send you an email thanking you and your staff at the Elvetham Hotel. From day one the we have felt completly at ease planning our wedding with you and felt that there was never anything to worry about.

We had an amazing wedding day and your staff made everything run so smoothly - even in the rain! Nothing was too much trouble for them and we feel that they are one of the reasons our day ran so perfectly.

All our guests had a great day and were blown away by the hotel & staff, we also think that you may now have a few frequent visitors!

If you can please pass on our thanks to the staff as they are an amazing team.

Kind regards
Kim & Rob (Purvor)

Hi Emily,

The Bride and Groom, Mr & Mrs Kleiren are now happily at their honeymoon destination.

We can now relax and reflect on the fabulous day we all had at the Elvetham.

It was, without doubt, the most wonderful day of our lives. The bride was stunningly beautiful, complimented by the wonderful Elvetham house and grounds.

The organisation, pre wedding by yourself and on the day by Andrew, went without a hitch, thank you.

The staff, during the event, were magnificent - efficient, courteous and above all happy and smiling.

Thank you all, you helped to ensure that Sue and Dom and their guests had a wonderful memorable experience.

We will treasure this day for the rest of our lives.

Thank you so much,
Mike & Wendy Harvey

Hi Emily!

I hope you are well!

I know my mum has already sent an email , however I just wanted to personally send on my HUGE thanks to you all on behalf of my husband and I ( any excuse to use the H word now haha) The team on the night were absolutely incredible, Nick in the day was always visible for any assistance we needed , he ran everything so smoothly and he never stops smiling which is wonderful to see especially at a wedding! All of our guests made a comment about how fantastic he was! Also Eric the toast master, a great guy , he again was always in reach to tell us what's happening next etc. He is very good at his job & again friendly with it!

Last but not least , yourself! Thank you for making our perfect day happen from start to finish. I can imagine your job can be very stressful at times with lots of brides and demands but you are an asset to your company and we never felt that there was anything we couldn't ask. You are prompt at getting back to emails and calls which is hugely important for a bride when they are waiting for answers. Its a shame I didn't get to thank you on the day but when we get the proper pictures through we will email some on!

Please don't forget to thank Andy and the other Nick for me. I didn't get to chat to them on the day, however I kept hearing how much of fantastic job they did too from my parents and guests . I believe everyone was chatting the ears off them still at around 2am! Apologies for that!

Also not forgetting the chefs - food was second to none , and the bar , waiting staff - they have to put up with a lot of drunken babble too, yet they still manage to deal with it and be friendly at the same time!

We can't thank you enough honestly...

If you could send all the thanks on that would be greatly appreciated!

Kindest Regards,

Mr & Mrs Deane

Dear Kacey,

We never met but Lee and Anna always spoke highly of you. I understand you are on a well-deserved holiday.

On behalf of the Ushers on the day... I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all at the Elvetham Hotel for their fantastic contribution to making Lee & Anna's wedding day a superb success!

Special mention to Andrew – great communication, superb attitude, professionalism, organisation and a can-do mentality to ensure all the 'little items' were carried out without fuss or problem – which made for a wonderfully happy celebration of Lee & Anna's wedding day. Great working with you!

Thanks also to Gemma, Sam and James (behind the bar) - even when tea & biscuits were requested at 11:00pm (by one or two of the older guests!) - James made it happen!

The positive attitude and behaviours were reflected amongst ALL of the staff and affiliates (photographers Jan & Adam, MoC Eric Gill) on duty over the weekend – without exception (not one incidence of eye-rolling or "that's a problem"!) and for this the Elvetham should be immensely proud. Everybody loved the Sunday breakfast – everything we could want or need – from rooibos tea, gorgeous blackberry-laden fruit salads and perfectly cooked and presented 'full-english'. The icing on the cake (if you'll excuse the food pun?). Followed by a stroll around the grounds and fond-farewells.

The venue and especially the grounds were inspiring – I have some idea as to the effort required to maintain that sort of standard, on that scale. Well done for creating that 'fairy tail' setting.

Please feel free to share this communication with prospective guests and future brides and grooms that might be considering your venue – I'm positive you'll make it as special.

Very best regards,
Phil Harvey

Hi Kacey,

We just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you, our wedding yesterday (21st june) was perfect in every way. In particular Andrew and Nick who were amazing, nick's guidance throughout the day was excellent they made sure everything was dealt with so efficiently and we didn't have to worry about a thing, it was all so laid back for us and meant we could really enjoy our day. We would also like to mention how brilliant the waiting staff were, they were all so polite and attentive, every guest we spoke to throughout the day mentioned what a beautiful venue it was and how lovely the staff were, in particular the young lady that followed us anonymously wherever we went always on hand with a drink. Even the reception staff couldn't do enough for us, our guests and our rooms were spotless and beautiful. And last but by no means least to yourself!!! All of your help in organising our day, making sure everything went without a hitch helped make our whole experience from the moment we visited 18 months ago to this morning when we checked out absolutely perfect.

Thank you all
(The newly married) Mr & Mrs Shaw

Hi Kacey

I’m sorry it’s been so long since I was last in touch, but we were away for a month and then trying to get back into the swing of things has been harder than expected!

We’d just like to say a huge thank you to you, Andrew and Nick for making our wedding day so wonderful. I’m sure you get far too many emails to look at everything you get sent, but just in case attached is the link to our wedding photos, so you can see what fun we had! www.rossyoung.co.uk/mclatch/

Thank you so much for making it such a wonderful day – we won’t forget how patient you were with us, and how seamless the whole day was thanks to your planning and Andrew and Nick’s orchestration on the day!!

Our very best wishes
Julie and Debbie

Dear Kacey

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

Hi Emily.

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 preparation.

We wish you all the best for the future.

Kind regards
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!!!)

Hi Kacey,

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.

Many Thanks
Mr & Mrs Hannant

Hi Kacey,

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.

Kind Regards
Chris Mould

Hi Emily,

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

Hi Kacey

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.

Best wishes
Niki and Stephen.

Hi Kacey,

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.

Kind Regards,
Kate Sutcliffe

Dear Kacey,

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!

Best wishes,
Katie & James

Hi Kacey,

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,
Mrs. Nixon

Hi Kacey

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

Hi Kacey

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.

Kind regards,
Tori & Carl

Hi Kacey

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

Dear Kacey,

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 experience.

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!

Best Wishes,
Alice and Christopher

A very thankful father of the Bride

Hi Kacey,

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

Hi Kacey

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!

Best wishes
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.

Philip Beebe
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.

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 again soon...
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!

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.”
