All the staff helped to make our wedding the most fantastic day. The wedding organiser was extremely helpful, the meal was delicious and they accommodated my unusual requests and catered for my guests many dietary requirements brilliantly. The room was clean and tidy, and we could only hear the planes when we had the windows open. Thank you for helping to make it the best day of my life.
perfect location for our perfect wedding
By dan and eszter, on 14 Nov 2013
Cannot recommend this location and its staff enough. Right from the planning stages where Georgina and Jill were both absolutely fantastic with helping to arrange everything just how we hoped for! Nothing was an effort to organise our wedding...we asked for a few changes to various bits right upto the day and they were always happy to accommodate and go the extra mile for us!
On the day, all the staff helped to make our wedding the most fantastic and special day. The food was perfect, really delicious and the chef was only to happy to cater for guests varied dietary requirements and our preferences. We had a lot of family staying at the hotel too and thank you so much to everyone for helping to make them all feel so welcome and once again help with organising meals the night before and lunch the following day, was all just perfect! Great Hallingbury manor was our first and in fact the only place we chose for our wedding as we loved the venue right from the start and we wouldn't have changed that for anything. Was a perfect choice and thank you all for giving us such a perfect and the best day or our lives! Also was really nice that Jonathan the Manager took his time to come and meet us and was so interested at how everything had been for us so we gave him our feedback which with all honesty was nothing but positive feedback! We have had nothing but positive comments from our guests, they absolutely loved the wedding day and they all comment on how much of a fantastic venue choice we made!!!
Thank you again and we hope to see you all again soon when we will visit for a nights stay!!
beautiful place for a wedding
By karen and gary, on 14 Nov 2013
We got married at this hotel in August and had a most amazing time. The grounds are beautiful and so is the inside. The views during the ceremony made it all the more special.
The staff were very attentive and efficient.
The rooms are very spacious with lovely bathrooms, the bridal suite is out of this world.
Breakfast was lovely, wide choice and hot.
A most fabulous venue for a wedding, a party or a romantic getaway.

Thanks so much to the venue and especially our wedding co-ordinator Georgina, everything went without a hitch! The venue is beautiful and we were ecstatic to share our special day with everyone there. The food was outstanding, really great. We were also able to have our whole wedding party stay over with us which was excellent. Definitely recommend the venue to everyone!
A fantastic day!

We had a great wedding at GHM in August 2013. The service was first class with the food and setting really making this a great venue for a wedding. In the build up to the wedding the staff, especially Georgina and Jill, went that extra step to make sure everything was perfect for us. They also helped with local suppliers and even the chruch! Thanks again for all your help. All of guests had a great time!
The perfect wedding venue
By Katie Clare, on 29 Aug 2013
Great Hallingbury Manor, in our eyes, was the perfect wedding venue.
We instantly knew GHM was for us as it ticked so many boxes and excelled our requirements.
We had five main things we were looking for a venue:
• that could accommodate a ceremony, wedding breakfast and reception for 120 people (plus evening guests) under one roof
• that would also have enough (30-40) bedrooms for the majority of guests – we wanted people to check in and chill out
• with a big/good inside layout that, should it rain, we’d be OK
• where the bar was in the same room as the disco – we wanted to keep everyone in the same room
• was reasonably priced
We loved GHM’s pretty, mock-tudor outside and beautiful setting (there are so many places for photos) yet modern interiors and bedrooms. The fact that it was exclusively ours for the day was a big bonus. The’ve also recently landscaped the whole lake and refreshed the interiors to improve the offering even more.
What really made the biggest difference, however, was the excellent staff. So many of our friends and family commented on how welcoming, yet professional they were.
Georgina Sellens, our wedding co-ordinator, deserves a special mention. Throughout the planning she kept in constant contact and kept a function sheet so I knew she’d understood all of our requirements. I knew I could trust her and she worked tirelessly on the day to make sure everything ran smoothly.
Some people may be immediately put off of GHM by the thought of noisy of planes as it’s so close to Stansted Airport. But honestly, we hardly noticed them and we got married on one of the busiest flight days of the year! I'd urge anyone to take a look round.
Wonderful wedding day
By Julie Hutchings, on 27 Aug 2013
We had a lovely wedding day at great hallingbury manor. The staff were very professional and friendly. Georgina the wedding co-ordinator was amazing, always available for any questions or concerns. georgina made our special day completely stress free. It is a beautiful hotel and very clean. Decor was good, and the surrounding gardens and lake were beautiful. They had ducks swimming in the lake and you could also see the fish, which kept the children entertained. The food was good, we had the lamb, it was brilliant. The breakfast the next morning was also excellent.

My daughter got married at Gt Hallingbury Manor hotel last Friday and the venue and all staff concerned were superb.
The food was excellent and waiting staff were professional, discreet and efficient.
Georgina, the wedding co-ordinator was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble! I felt in very safe, competent hands all day.
We had a beautiful suite in the stable
block. At one point we had 2 hairdressers, the photographer, the bride, bridesmaids and the bride's mother all getting ready and it still felt spacious and calm!
The bridal suite was beautiful.
A big thank you to all the staff who helped make my daughter's special day run so smoothly.
Perfect wedding at perfect location
By Kath & Symon Clayton, on 25 Jun 2013
On the 24th February we got married at GHM. It was the most perfect day is every way. The hotel staff were the friendliest and nicest people we have meet. In the year planning our wedding we got to know our wedding planner Jill very well and a number of other staff. We spent the whole weekend there as did most of our guest (booking every room). Having just over 100 guest the venue was the perfect size not too small or big. The staff ensured our day went perfectly without any problems. The rooms are luxurious, the food was amazing and the setting is just perfect. Thank you GHM for making our day the best day our lives.
Perfect Wedding Day!
By Mr and Mrs Roberts, on 31 May 2013
The venue, grounds and staff could not have been any better for our wedding day! Every request we made in the lead up to our day was dealt with and Georgina (wedding coordinator) could not have been any more accommodating with questions from us. Our guests were complementing the food and venue throughout the day. We could not have asked for more!
