Amazing wedding day

We had our wedding day here yesterday 21.07.2023, it was absolutely amazing. Azhar was our master of ceremonies and he genuinely couldn’t do enough for us, he was so welcoming from the moment we got there, our room was set up perfectly. They actually set up both inside and outside as there was a chance it was going to rain. Azhar kept us both updated on the chances of rain throughout the morning so we could make a decision and he put no pressure on us making a decision right up until the last minute where we decided to chance it and go outside. The grounds are amazing, the food was incredible, the service was spot on. I didn’t hear any complaints at all from any of our guests, every person commented on how much of a beautiful venue ardencote was and how great the food and service was. The whole day far exceeded our expectations. Azhar went above and beyond to make our families feel comfortable, my dad was extremely nervous for his speech and he bought out a whisky for him to settle his nerves which I thought was such a lovely thing to do, my father in law is diabetic and he bought him a cheese board out for desert, it was these little touches that made such a difference. Megan and Dawn, the wedding planners were so helpful as well and always respond to emails promptly, we had several visits with them and they are so helpful.

A massive thank you to all staff at Ardencote!
We can’t wait to book to come back for our 1st year anniversary!

Amazing Venue!

The wedding co-ordinator, Megan, was absolutely brilliant throughout us planning our wedding at Ardencote. Megan responded to all of our emails efficiently and ensured she made notes of any special requests we had on the run up to the wedding and these were adhered to on the wedding day without us having to ask again. Ardencote couldn't do enough for us, they put out all of our homemade place-cards, wedding favours, gifts, confetti, signs, seating plan etc without hesitation. They were more than happy to help. The receptionist the night before our wedding (30.05.24) was so friendly and helpful with giving everybody directions and getting us keys made to ensure we could put our belongings and the wedding cake somewhere safe. Liz, the master of ceremonies, was so lovely and she ensured that our special day ran completely smooth. Nothing went wrong and all of the timings were bang on. We can't thank all of the staff at Ardencote enough! They was amazing throughout the whole process for us and we can't wait to go back and stay on our first anniversary to celebrate.
