Perfect wedding!
Venue Service

By Ed and Lynsey Armstrong, on 06 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Oct 2019

We have recently got married at Audleys Wood hotel and would really recommend the venue to everyone! We chose Audleys because I loved the conservatory room, the beautiful ceiling makes it a bright and beautiful room, and because it was important for us, having guests coming from all over, that there were rooms at the venue. We booked the venue last year, but even though our planner changed a couple of times in that period, we were never concerned about communication, someone was always available to talk to us about any queries we had, and made sure that we went into the day with everything prepared. The actual day was wonderful, the staff worked really hard to make sure that everything went perfectly to plan, helped by the toastmaster, who was arranged through Audleys and was fantastic. We had beautiful canapes served during the drinks reception, and the afternoon tea, evening buffet and midnight baps were all delicious and beautifully presented! I'm just sad its all over, want to do it all again!

Our Perfect Day

My husband & I got married at The Audley Wood Hotel in October, from the day we booked with the hotel till the day we got married the staff were absolutely fantastic. The food was amazing and everyone who came to our wedding said what a stunning place it was! The staff went out of their way to ensure our day was just perfect! I would definitely recommend this hotel for your wedding! Thankyou so much to all the staff for making our day amazing! Xx

We had our wedding day at Audleys Wood at the beginning of September and we can honestly say it was the most perfect and best day of our lives so far. We cannot recommend Audleys Wood enough. The venue from the beautiful conservatory ceremony room which is very chapelesque and takes in an amazing amount of sunlight, to the reception drinks on the lawn around the gazebo, to the garden pavillion located privately surrounded by trees was simply amazing. The lighting for the evening around and within the pavillion set the perfect atmosphere for the wedding reception and the music didn't have to finish until 1am. After that we were able to carry on in the hotel bar. The food was delicious too. Whilst mingling with our guests between courses we noticed everyone's plates completely clean and so many guests told us it was amazing food. All of the staff were wonderful. Anne-Marie our wedding planner made everything easy going and worry free leading up to the big day. On the day Michael worked with one of our groomsmen acting as Master of Ceremonies and organised the day perfectly. We were even introduced to Eduardo our chef for the day who was also lots of fun as well as being incredibly skilled. Along with the staff I have mentioned everyone else was also fantastic too. Although we are going to be biased when describing how perfect our day was since it was our wedding, we have actually had quite a few guests telling us it was the best wedding they had been to, which, in no small part, was also helped by Audleys Wood.

Amazing venue

By Naomi Stubbs, on 31 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Aug 2019

From the moment we visited Audleys Wood, we loved the venue; the gardens and pavilion were beautiful and the ceremony room had lovely high ceilings. All the staff were kind and welcoming and we felt no pressure to book at any time which we really appreciated with all the stress of deciding on the venue. Our wedding coordinator, Anne-Marie, arranged regular meetings helping us keep on track of our planning and providing an opportunity to resolve any issues or questions we had. We had a perfect day - everything went smoothly, the food was amazing and everyone had a great time.

Kevin and I had the most amazing day Friday 26th July 2019 when we got married in the garden at Audleys Wood. With Anne-Marie's detailed planning, Mark and the team did a wonderful job during the whole day and evening. We had fantastic weather and even with the Wedding Breakfast in the Restaurant and evening party & dance in the Pavilion, it all went really smoothly. All our guests have only great things to say about all the staff, overnight stay and the food was fantastic! We can warm heartedly recommend Audlys Wood. You will be very well looked after!

A wonderful venue for a wedding large or small
Venue Service

By Alexis and Andrew Wilson, on 21 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 31 May 2019

We found Audleys Wood on this site, and after making initial inquiries, including a visit, we quickly decided this would be the perfect venue. It is outstanding value for money, with wonderful buildings and grounds, helpful and friendly staff and sumptuous food!! We held our service and wedding breakfast in the conservatory, and it was just a magical setting. There was a wide menu to choose from, and the standard of food was outstanding. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, not just to the bridal party, but to all of our guests too. The evening reception was an absolute blast, again with plenty of food and drink, space inside and out; I have never danced for so long in my life! We found it very useful to have all the days events at the same location and there was ample space in the hotel for our guests and good travel links for those that couldn't stay.

An incredible day!

By April Compton, on 07 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 11 May 2019

From the moment my husband saw Audleys wood for the first time, he fell in love. I have loved in Basingstoke all my life, so I knew what an amazing venue it is and how polite the staff are. We attended one of Audleys wood wedding fairs and had the chance to see the venue in all f it's glory. Anne-Marie ( our wedding coordinator) was an absolute pleasure to work with: nothing was too much trouble and she kept in regular contact with us throughout the year running up to our wedding day. Every single member of staff at Audleys wood our efficient, polite and attentive: they all went above and beyond to make our wedding day the special day it was. The wedding breakfast was delicious, all food was piping hot and tasted lovely. The chef made a special effort to accommodate for some difficult dietary requirements with one guest saying it was the best gluten/dairy free meal she had ever had. Any problems on the day like guests who had not arrived or a seating plan change was handled discreetly and quickly by staff on the day. My husband and I had the most amazing wedding day and Audleys wood was a big part of that. We strongly recommend Audleys wood for any couple looking for the wedding of their dreams no matter how big or small.

A magical day!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Stones, on 22 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Apr 2019

Our big day was absolutely perfect. Nothing went wrong, the staff were happy and helpful and nothing was to much trouble for them. It was clean, the food was amazing and they were super organised. Not once did we worry that something wouldn't get done and all the things we asked for were completed in plenty of time before the wedding started. Also the toastmaster that came with our package (Alanna) made our day, she was exceptional and I would always recommend having a toastmaster! We'd love to relive it all over again.

Brilliant Venue and Team

We had a fantastic wedding at Audleys Wood. The staff are all so nice, the food is very good, and the hotel itself is a beautiful venue.

A perfect day
Venue Service

By Matt and Jane, on 18 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2018

We had our wedding at Audleys Wood Hotel in October. The venue was ideal for us. The hotel building has plenty of character and the ceremony room was beautiful. The grounds were great for our guests to mingle in, and the children to play, after the wedding. The marquee worked really well for the wedding breakfast and evening do. The whole team at Audleys Wood were excellent and very professional, and our day went smoothly all the way through. We would certainly recommend it as a wedding venue.

Couldnt do enough for you
Venue Service

By Rebecca and Jay Boulter, on 03 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2018

We had our day a few weeks ago and had been planning it for almost two years. Throughout the whole planning process we were with Anne-Marie who couldn't do enough for you - I had so many questions and worries and she was supportive and willing to help every step of the way throughout, even though I wanted to tweak a lot of the standard way of doing things. When it came to the day the bridal sweet was beautiful and really spacious, enough for 7 girls to get ready in, and everything was on time and just as planned. It absolutely poured it down but it didn't make a difference, I had no worries although I'm usually a worrier and they'd taken care of everything for me, the ceremony room and reception room looked just how I asked with no nasty surprises and there were so many compliments on the food being 'the best wedding food we've ever had' - it came out in a timely manner too so no hanging around! Everything seemed seamless from morning to evening and I'm so pleased I had no stress or worries and was just left to enjoy the day, Michael was a big help in that too so thank you to you both and the rest of the team at Audley's Wood.

After a whirlwind few months after our wedding I’m finally getting round to sharing our wedding story! Myself and my husband would recommend Audleys Wood to anyone getting married with no hesitation, with just over 2 years of planing our day was absolutely perfect from start to finish! Leading up to our day Anne-Marie was fab with answering all of our questions and worries, completely putting our minds at ease with regular meetings and being on hand via email! On the day, I felt completely relaxed getting ready in the bridal suite, with the staff on hand to deal with anything we needed, the venue was set up completely how we wanted without us having to worry about anything, and actually probably turned out looking even more beautiful than we had ever imagined! We could both enjoy the day and relax without having to worry about the running of the day as Mike completely handled this effortlessly, with everything running like clockwork . All our guests commented on the beautiful surrounding of the hotel, as well as the food and service being incredible. Our day was truly perfect, and we look forward to returning to Audleys Wood in the future.
