    Bartle hall staff were wonderful and provided my husband and I with a memorable experience even with covid.

    Thankfully our wedding was allowed to go ahead and Bartle hall refunded us for the breakfast meal and evening reception. We only intended an intimate wedding and Bartle staff were wonderful.

    You really are the wedding experts

    We held our wedding at Bartle Hall on the 7th March this year, and the whole experience was just amazing. The Weddings team during the planning process are helpful, supportive and just generally lovely...even when in the week before your wedding you send them about 8 emails a day, Rachel in particular couldn’t have done more for us. Nothing is too much trouble when planning your wedding meal and the trial meal experience is just fab. The actual day was just absolutely amazing and this was down to the organisation, professionalism and lovely personalities that guide you through it. Heather and Paul looked after us on the day, from making sure we got to take 5 minutes to ourselves straight after our ceremony, to the best and most rousing introduction as a married couple to our wedding breakfast guests, these were all the things that just made the day perfect. We couldn’t have felt more special and more looked after, they were just the best. Thank you Bartle Hall - you really are the wedding experts.

    From start to finish, it was absolutely perfect

    We had our wedding in the Balmoral Suite at the beginning of September and from start to finish it was absolutely perfect. The room and the garden at the back are beautiful and the food was gorgeous! Special mention to Paul and Heather who did such a good job at making sure the day ran smoothly. You hardly noticed them there but they did such a seamless job. Paul was great at making sure we were happy with everything - we really felt like he cared that our day was as perfect as it could be. And I've never been as happy as when Heather told us she has saved us a bacon butty at the end of the night! Would definitely recommend Bartle Hall for your wedding!

    What an amazing venue, so beautiful!

    We had our special day at Bartle on Saturday at the barn. What an amazing venue. So beautiful. The wedding team decorated it beautifully and the food was delicious! The team working were very sufficient and food and drinks were delivered to the guests so quickly. Heather is amazing!! She made me feel so at ease throughout the day, made everything run so smoothly and had such a funny beautiful aura about her. Everything was just perfect and we did not let the rain ruin our day. Would highly recommend Bartle Hall!

    In the whole two years every single member of staff at bartle hall have been incredible not just because of our wedding but even when we randomly went in for food everyone is so friendly and just can’t do enough!!
    Heather was amazing from our final meeting and then on our big day making sure everything was perfect!! The food was out of this world so a huge thank you so the chef !!
    The bar staff were loved by everyone for being really friendly and not messing around serving them drinks and I have to do a special shout out to Julie!! She is Wonder Woman!! She is an absolute credit to you and deserves an amazing amount of praise.
    Thank you so much Bartle Hall and all the staff that were part of our big day it was beyond perfect and better than we ever imagined we go to a lot of venues as my partner is a photographer himself and have never seen such dedication to make a couples day so perfect by every single person honestly I cannot thank you and praise you all enough.

    We had our dream wedding

    I don’t think we can thank you enough for what you did for us on Tuesday. We had our dream wedding thanks to the Bartle Hall team. Everything ran so smoothly, the décor was stunning and the staff were so incredibly helpful and assisting to all guests and especially family and the bridal / groom party. All of the staff were so accommodating and made us feel that no request was too big! The food! The food was amazing! Guests were so complimentary of the wedding breakfast and evening food. It was absolutely gorgeous! A big shout out to Heather who kept everything running like clock work on the day and to Georgie and Lyndsey who have helped, supported and accommodated us at every step of the way! We are already excited about returning to Bartle Hall.

    The best day of our lives

    We got married at Bartle Hall on Saturday 9th of March. It really was the best day of our lives. From the get go the wedding team were so helpful and attentive. They helped us plan every aspect of the day. The day itself was amazing! Everything went so smoothly for us and the guests were very well looked after. All of the staff we met were professional and friendly. Our coordinator for the day made sure everything was perfect for us. The guests commented that it was the best wedding food they’d eaten and we have to agree. It really was the best day ever. The bridal suite is stunning, the breakfast was well made and the Windsor and Balmoral suites were beautiful. Thank you so much to everyone who made it happen xx
