Magnificent Team

By Summer 2014, on 13 Aug 2014

My wedding day exceeded all of my expectations, it is clear everyone really enjoyed themselves. It created many special memories for all. The staff at Knebworth are incredibly professional and attentive, the reception went very smoothly due to this care and attention. Most notably the liaison from Tara and Jenna in the weeks and months prior to this fantastic experience and Jonathan and Chris on the evening of the event. I could not have been happier. They are a truly magnificent team!

Very Happy Bride!

By Winter 2013, on 13 Aug 2014

Nichola was absolutely super throughout the whole planning process. Right from my initial enquiry, she was quick to respond to all emails and arranged a couple of visits (one to the house and one to the barns) which in the time constraints I had was ideal. Nichola provided the perfect amount of information on each of the venues, outlining different options and costs and things to think about. Most importantly Nichola has a lovely manner and style to put people at ease whilst being professional in everything she does. A wedding is a big event and commitment in people’s lives and Nichola’s understanding of this in the way she operates really comes through to give the customer a level of comfort. All in all Nichola has been a pleasure to work with and I would recommend others to use Knebworth given the great level of customer service they would receive. On the day we received an outstanding service from the team and they were very attentive to all of our needs. We really could not have asked for a better team or nicer venue to help us celebrate our special day.

Special Experience

By November 2013, on 13 Aug 2014

Nichola, Martin, Mia and the knebworth team created such a wonderful day and the most special experience. We really appreciated the planning and effort that went into the day and our guests loved the grounds of Knebworth.

By March 2014, on 13 Aug 2014

The Knebworth team were great and really made us feel at home, and their help made our Wedding Reception really special. Nichola's hard work and assistance throughout the organisation of the whole event was amazing and we couldn't have asked anymore from the team on the day!

Simply Perfect!

By April 2014, on 13 Aug 2014

We really enjoyed our special day and the venue was perfect, exactly what we were looking for. We were also blessed with a beautiful sunny day which should make some great photos. I'd also like to say a huge thanks to Nichola for all the help before the day-dealing with my constant emails and questions. Also to the staff on the day, to Martin in particular who was friendly and helpful to us on, before and after the day, always being professional but making us feel relaxed.

Exactly How We Wanted!

By May 2014, on 13 Aug 2014

Nichola and the team were great in helping to organise our wedding for us. The day was amazing and ran so smoothly. The toastmaster, Daniel (booked through Knebworth) was excellent. He sorted the guests out and got them where they needed and even helped to settle my husband's nerves over his speech. Jonathan was BRILLIANT and made sure everything went exactly how we wanted, which it did! He was there right from the start, helping us to unload our car the day before and right to the end, helping loading it up the day after. We actually cannot thank him enough!


By May 2014, on 13 Aug 2014

Our wedding day was the most perfect and the most amazing. Nichola and the team really helped us to achieve that! Martin, Olga and Julie were so supportive throughout the day and we could not have wanted for anything else!

The Team!

By May 2014, on 13 Aug 2014

The team at Knebworth Barns helped to make my daughter’s wedding such a wonderful day. I could not have asked for anything more from all who worked with us on the day and who helped to make it such a special occasion with the help and thoughtfulness that was put in by all was second to none. This would not have been such a special day without all of the hard work, appreciation and friendliness which they all added to the day.

Food was Delicious

By June 2014, on 13 Aug 2014

A sincere thank you to Nichola for all your help with organising our day! To say it was a success would be an understatement! The food was delicious and all the dietary requirements were met too. Please pass on our thanks to the chef. Martin and the team were efficient , polite and very hard working. Nothing was too much trouble for them and our needs we're met in every way. An amazing venue with a great team.

A Day to Remember Forever!
