Thank You

By Jess and James, on 28 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2019

Thanks so much for helping us to organise the most amazing wedding at Ardington! The house and the marquee were perfect venues, and looked absolutely beautiful. Dragos and Lydia looked after everyone so well - we really did feel at home. It was pretty magical to "live" somewhere like Ardington

Thank You!

Honestly, we couldn't have wished for a better day, in a better venue. Everything went perfectly, everyone loved it and most importantly me and Greg loved it. I am so glad I chose Ardington, every detail made the day even more magical than we had thought, Dragos & Lydia were amazing, made the night before and the morning run as smooth as possible. Charlie and Sarah have been a pleasure to liaise with, answering all of my little questions to help me feel at ease before the big day.

Thank you From The Zaks

Andy and I wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help and support over our wedding back in June. From all the preparation, set-up, our accommodation and the day itself, you were all so friendly and helpful. We could not have asked for a more beautiful venue and we had such an amazing day! Thank you all so much!

By Max & Farah, on 17 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2017

The guests (ourselves included) had our breath taken away by the venue, the food and drinks. Not sure if you heard but your wonderful team was the first to be thanked in Max's speech. Everything went smoothly in the end and we loved it all. Please also help to thank Dragos & Lydia for us for being so lovely and helpful. It was a pleasure working with you all.

Best Day of our lives
Venue Service

By Christina & Tony, on 28 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2017

We really did have the best time last week. The venue was just incredible! I loved every second! From planning it with you, to keeping our cake cool in the cellar and finally to our buggy ride into the marquee, the friendly service was just outstanding. Thanks again, Christina.

Thank you

We are missing Ardington House so much....we are currently trying to convince my sister to get engaged and get married there! Alvin and I cannot thank you and the team at Ardington house enough for make our wedding day magical. From the start the team has always kept us informed and reassured which made wedding planning easier and fun! We really appreciate the timely response to emails and accommodating meetings to suit our schedules. Staying at Ardington House for the whole weekend of our wedding celebrations was the best decision we made. The house is absolutely beautiful and the service we received from Lidia and Dragos was exceptional. The day itself ran so smoothly with the help of Rachel and the team. She ensured we stuck to time so we could get all things done as planned including the multiple bridal outfit changes! She looked after us so well especially when she sent the wedding party canapes to our rooms in between ceremonies. The food was delicious especially the sticky toffee pudding! Our family and wedding guests still tell us how absolutely fantastic the venue and the service was for our fusion wedding! We thank you so much for helping us create this.

The whole day went perfectly

By Holly Pink, on 01 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Jun 2017

I truly cannot thank you and the Ardington house team enough for helping us host what I can honestly say was just the best day EVER! Sam and I couldn't stop smiling (and we still haven't). It was the perfect day and being surrounded by all of our family and friends in such a wonderful location is something we will never ever forget. Ardington is an incredibly special venue and somewhere that we will always think about with the fondest of memories. I miss it so much already!
