Great venue - amazing day!
Venue Service

By Serenna, on 03 Jun 2015

We had a wonderful wedding and the venue was great. Our only disappointment is that they failed to iron the table cloth used for the wedding breakfast despite promising us that they will do so. The staff do appeared distant, albeit professional and well organised. The day went really well for us and we had an amazing day - so thank you to everyone at Eastnor.

The whole thing ran like clock work
Venue Service

By Chris & Stella, on 13 Nov 2014

We both wanted to say a big thank you to you and Ben, and the rest of the team for all your wonderful help and support on our big day. Ben was an absolute star all day, he really was great. Please pass along our thanks. The whole thing ran like absolute clock work and allowed us just to enjoy the day. I can't believe how very fast the day went, it seemed to be over in a flash. We have already decided we want a ten year anniversary with you.

The best day of our lives
Venue Service

By Amy & Jason, October 2014, on 13 Nov 2014

Jason and I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you, thank you for making our day the best day of our lives. We absolutely loved every minute of it. Thank you for taking such good care of us. The food was amazing, we had so many comments that it was the best beef they had ever tasted! Thank you to Ben, for ensuring that no one else came along the road when my dad and I were going to the church, for taking us out in the land drover (that was really fun) and for staying later than he should, we really appreciated it. Most importantly thank you to you for everything, for making the build up so exciting every time we came up to the castle and the email chats of making mum and I calm :-P and thank you for coming up on the day it was so so lovely to see you, it really was :-)) I can't believe it’s all over! I have tried to write down the day so as not to forget everything, we just really and truly wanted to say how grateful we are.

Something Really Special!
Venue Service

By Dave Stone, Sep 2014, on 09 Oct 2014

Big, big thank you to you and all your team for making Fran & Ben’s Wedding Day something really special. The feedback from everyone has been incredible! Worked at numerous venues in my time and this one far outweighs any of the others!

Brilliant, brilliant. brilliant.
Venue Service

By Father of the Bride, August 2014, on 11 Sep 2014

My note today is to let you know that we could not have booked a better place or a better team. The castle speaks for itself and you may remember that I had reservations about the darkness of the colours in some of the rooms. You were exactly right when you said that with curtains open the rooms came to life. Indeed they did and our guests were astounded at the level of accommodation they were given. The decision to lock down the castle for the first hour was proved correct as people walked through the turrets and out onto the rear terrace for drinks etc. Their reactions were of awe and excitement as they came out onto the terrace. The decision to dine in the larger room was also correct as this gave everyone room to walk about or move their chairs without hindrance and gave the impression of absolute opulence. Everyone I spoke with gave compliment after compliment about the great room in particular and the castle in general. Hannah simply looked stunning in her silk and lace gown and, of course, I was reduced to a blubbing mess when I went to collect her from her room. The whole day was everything we had hoped and everything and more that we had planned. The best man said “Mike, simply the best.” And I agree with him. The castle is wonderful and the staff were friendly and showed the height of professionalism. There is a great deal to complain about day to day life these days but I can only and will only sing the praises of the whole that you offer and the way you all put that together. Brilliant; brilliant; brilliant.

A magical day!
Venue Service

By Kate Johnson, on 18 Aug 2014

This wedding venue is perfect. Eastnor is beautiful inside with a grand look but has a relaxed and homely atmosphere. We loved that it was exclusively ours for the day and that our families could stay there overnight. If you get married here you won't have to worry about a thing. The food was outstanding and many guests have said that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. You definitely won't regret it if you book Eastnor Castle for your wedding. A big thanks to Nicky and Ben for making our day run so smoothly.

A team to be reckoned with!
Venue Service

By John & Natalie, July 2014, on 01 Aug 2014

We cannot thank you enough for all of the fantastic support and work. Yourself and Ben are a team to be reckoned with! If we can ever help with any future references or validations for other clients/marketing, please don't hesitate to ask us. We will happily sing your praises.

The organisation was tremendous!
Venue Service

By Father of the Bride, July 2014, on 01 Aug 2014

Thank you so much for organising such a wonderful day on Saturday – including the weather! The organisation was tremendous and Ben and the staff were truly outstanding – entirely professional, attentive, discreet and effective. The meal was brilliant. It was really an excellent day.

An exquisite Wedding
Venue Service

By Family of Natalie & John, July 2014, on 01 Aug 2014

We just wanted to say that you put on an exquisite wedding for Natalie and John on Friday. It was flawless and that is down to you and the wonderful team at the castle. It is a memory we will all cherish forever.

Simply Stunning
Venue Service

By Kristine & Bryan, June 2014, on 01 Aug 2014

Just a quick note to you and Ben and the rest of the staff at Eastnor to thank you for making our wedding day so special. Of course, the venue itself was everything we expected it to be--simply stunning, and a truly special place to be. A once in a lifetime kind of experience for many of our guests. And thankfully we had the weather working on our side too! But a special thank you to you for working with us through-out the year on all the planning and details and sorting everything out--we couldn't have done it without you Nicky. And thanks to both you and Ben on the big day for keeping us on track--many people lost their bet on me being late to the church! We also got many compliments on the catering, so we were very pleased with this. So overall, a very memorable and special day for us, and thank you and the Eastnor staff in helping make this happen.

We could not have asked for more!
Venue Service

By Louise & Nick, June 2014, on 10 Jul 2014

We wanted to write to you to say 'thank you' so much for everything. Our day was absolutely amazing. The venue, the organisation, the catering, the staff, you, Ben, and the personal feel that made it such a fabulous memorable day - everything was just fantastic. We could not have asked for more!

It surpassed our highest hopes
Venue Service

By James & Alexandra, February 2014, on 15 May 2014

We wanted to write formally to say thank you all for your advice, hard work and effort to make our wedding day on Saturday 22nd February as special as it was. It surpassed our highest hopes for the day on many levels, it was completely magical. Nicky, you were unfailingly helpful with your time and advice in the run up to the day. We trusted your judgement about how the day would work best and it ran beautifully smoothly thanks also to your incredibly efficient team on the day. To be greeted by Ben and Sue in the morning was lovely. They also were incredibly helpful, right up until the Castle main door closed on us at 10:30am (or so!?) the following morning. They allowed us to feel relaxed and comfortable in the Castle, as if it were our own. Sadly, we didn't get to say goodbye to Ben on the night and thank him in person, so please do pass this onto him as well as the others involved. He was a superstar and everything ran like clock-work! Our guests were slightly star struck throughout the evening and loved every moment of it. We felt very lucky to spend our 'big day' with them in such a special venue.
