Booked and married in 4 weeks!!
By Tanya Balev, on 09 Jan 2015
Oh yes, our wedding airplane has already landed to the ground and we are slowly coming to reality ;-)
As for the Wedding day itself: We had seen a dozen of wedding venues before we stopped by Northcote House and never regret. Special thanks are going to you for your help and attentiveness to our requests and concerns. You were always reachable and pushed us at times where it was required as we were very busy arranging other things like florist, wedding dress, etc. You have gone extra mile with us by arranging such a lovely wedding in a very short period of time. Personally, we think you deserve a pay raise for the efforts you have put to arrange our Big Day. I am sure you look after the others with the same diligence and approach.
Additionally we also would like to thank you for special offer that you arranged for our guests. Our extended family comfortably was accommodated during that night and we had a delicious breakfast on the following morning!
On the wedding day itself everything was very well organized. All members of staff knew exactly what they should do and always were very helpful. We received so many compliments from guests on how delicious the wedding breakfast food was on the day. The staff was very attentive and always willing to assist.
We would recommend this venue to anyone. And hopefully some of our friends will decide upon this venue in a near future.
Again, thank you so much!
From Tanya & Dmitrii

Barry and I had an amazing day! The venue was fantastic and everything went as planned. All the staff were helpful and everybody thought the food was delicious. The service was impeccable during the wedding breakfast and the bar staff were excellent too. Robin was fantastic as an event manager and made sure we knew what was going on throughout the day and made sure we were in the right places at the right time. It was a perfect day in a wonderful venue with amazing grounds and excellent staff. A huge thank you to you for all your help organising and answering my numerous questions and emails! Please also pass on our thanks to Robin. You are both a huge asset to Northcote house.

Apologies for the delay in responding to your request for written feedback but I've been on jury service and can now resume 'normal life' again following the upheaval of the past 3 months.
Jason and I both agree that our wedding day was perfect. Perfect weather, a perfect venue, wonderful food and great service from all the staff involved in our big day and, obviously your self and Robin, in the preparation for it.
Numerous guests have commented on the fine quality of the food and the precise co-ordination of the waiting staff delivering the courses to the tables so both they and the Chef are to be commended.
I would like to thank Robin for organising the day so well and for his concern and assistance when my daughter injured her ankle. How she danced on it all night I do not know! She doesn't know to this day how the accident happened but has now, fortunately, fully recovered following a short course of physiotherapy.
We enjoyed ourselves so much at Northcote House that Jason and I, together with our close families, have booked for Christmas Day Lunch. So far we are a party of 12 but that number may well increase!
Thank you again, Sharmaine, for all your assistance with our wedding plans.
Very best wishes to you and your husband for the future,
Helen (and Jason) xx

Sorry I haven't been in contact, I went straight back to work after the wedding and it is the busiest time of year for me at the moment. I'm currently in New York, flew in yesterday evening and fly back Friday night so don't even have time to shop!
We had an absolutely fantastic day, we loved every minute. Robin was a star and nothing was too much trouble. The bar staff were great, especially putting up with all the drunken Irish singing at the end, when I 'm sure they just wanted to go home. The food was great, not that I ate much as I'd been a bag of nerves all day, but all my family and friends thought it was great. It really was a perfect day and I would recommend this venue to anyone. I really believe it is a reasonably priced for the excellent service provided. I still remember the first day I visited with my friend, you were chatting to another couple so we waited and I almost left as I was convinced it was going to be out of our price range, I'm so glad I waited!
Thank you so much for all your help in the preparation, you were very patient with all my 100's of questions.
Big thank you again to you and all your team

I'm so sorry for not replying sooner, been very busy since we got back from honeymoon!
It is definitely me who should be thanking you. You and the staff at Northcote house went above and beyond to make sure everything went according to plan. We were so pleased at how everything turned out and our guests were so impressed with the venue. Thank you personally for always being there to answer my questions (no matter how ridiculous they were). We also wanted to let you know what an amazing job Robin did. I could not have got through the day without him. He was so good at keeping me calm and was able to shift the schedule for the day to suit me.
I honestly can't think of any criticisms. Some of the guests who were outside during the drinks reception commented that they didn't get any canapés but I think that is more because of some greedy guests taking more than their fair share before the waiters got a chance to go outside.
Thanks again, Mr & Mrs Richards
Sunday 5th October - The Simmonds
By Mrs Carly Simmonds, on 04 Nov 2014
Good afternoon Sharmaine,
Thank you for your email.
The wedding was amazing, and the sun came out for us too which was a bonus- I would like to thank you all for everything on the day. Marcus was Brilliant! Nothing was too much trouble and a few things on the morning of wedding we had discussed, he had done within the blink of an eye. It was quite eventful with 2 ambulances being called out ( both parties are fine ) but all kept in hand with minimal disruption. The feedback I have received from our guests was how well organised the day was- which is down to you and your team- will definitely be recommending you in the future.

The wedding was absolutely amazing and breath taking! Each one of our guest have commented saying how much they enjoyed it and how well organised it was. Rob and his team were superb and everything went without a hitch...least as to what Lee and I knew from anyway!
I must take this opportunity to single out one of the waitresses, Marta. I had a slight disaster with my dress half way through the meal where my dad knocked red wine down me! I must salute this waitress as she was so quick and professional with helping getting the stain out and she had no worries in getting drenched in white wine herself to sponge it all out. She really was my life saver and I have had feedback from a few of our guests about how how on top of things she was the day and evening.
I really can't thank Rob and his team enough really. They were spotless in their work and we're really fantastic with everyone and everything.
Thank you so much for ensuring the day went smoothly.
Many thanks ,

Firstly, thank you to all at Northcote.
All the staff were very accommodating and could not do more for us.
I had a lovely breakfast in the restaurant with our friends and bridesmaids on the morning and I never had to stress or worry about a thing.
Marcus (the day manager) was incredible, he had everything exactly the way I had imagined it and all our guests made comments regarding how much attention to detail there was in the venue. We even had a few people who said they had never had such good food at a wedding before.
We were ever so pleased with the staff on the day we had not expected the level of service that was provided, they served the dinner with an elegance you don’t often see these days. We watched them from our seats with the biggest smiles on our faces.
The food was even better then we remembered from the tasting, honestly I did not think that was possible. The food was one of the parts I was most looking forward to and even that exceeded my expectations.
We had so many lovely comments from our guests regarding the venue, food and staff – they made the day a complete success and words can’t describe how grateful I am.
My new In-Laws wrote us a lovely thank you note telling us how special and looked after they felt on the day, they gave us the credit for this but truthfully it was the staff at Northcote who deserve this.
I could not thank you all enough.
The food was excellent
By Clare Trew, on 10 Jun 2014
A few photos from our fab day. Just to reiterate at how very pleased we were with how the whole day went. The food was excellent, the staff professional and everything went like clockwork, with special thanks to you and Marcus, but please pass our thanks onto all the staff.
We could not ask for more
By Didem & Ian Allen, on 10 Jun 2014
Sorry we didn't reply your email earlier, we've been very busy ever since the wedding and there I was hoping that we would have time to relax once it's over :)
We're on our way to our honeymoon destination two and I thought I should write to let you know what a wonderful time we had at our wedding. I don't know where to start as everything and everyone have been absolutely amazing! Special thanks to you for making sure everything was done for the day and keeping us on check so we won't forget (not so) little details. And to Carlos for going the extra mile for us on the day. Oh and the food, all our guests complimented how nice it was. As I said before everything have been perfect and we could not ask for more.
Lots of love
Didem & Ian
