Weddings at Billesley Manor
By Lucy Fisher, on 18 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 23 Jun 2017
My husband and I got married at Billesley Manor in June, it really was the day of our dreams, the staff were excellent, the grounds are stunning and the manor played a beautiful host for our summer wedding. Naomi did an excellent job in helping us plan our wedding and ensuring everything went to plan on the day. We used their recommended florist Jane Pillinger and she created the perfect arrangements from our flower girls mini posy to our vintage style center pieces. We also used the recommended in house DJ Quazar Disco's who aloud us to select number of special songs to be played throughout the evening.
We would thoroughly recommend choosing billesley manor for your wedding as it is the perfect backdrop for the perfect wedding.

We chose Billesley Manor for our wedding and cannot fault the location, venue, food or the staff. In particular Naomi (our wedding planner) was second to none and made our special day memorable.
I cannot recommend Billesley Manor highly enough and we shall definitely return.
Our wedding day

Our †wedding‡ day
June 17th 2017 proved to be the happiest day of our lives.
With the help of Naomi Wicks as our Wedding Co-ordinator, Billesley Manor provided the perfect venue for my wedding to my darling Jonathan.
All of the hotel staff were most helpful and obliging and with their help we had a brilliant and memorable day.
We managed to celebrate with our families and friends throughout the day and everyone we spoke to concurred with our opinion that Billesley Manor had been perfect in every way, the food was great and the staff fulfilled our every wish to help create the perfect day.
Billesley Manor will live long into our memories as the PERFECT wedding venue
Best Wishes and heartfelt thanks

Fantastic Wedding venue
By Helen & Scott, on 18 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Apr 2017
We had our wedding reception here on 1st April 2017 and it was the perfect venue. The grounds are superb and made a lovely backdrop for our wedding photos. Inside as well, all of ours guests were happy with their rooms and the other facilities (spa area, bar, food.)
Thanks to Naomi the wedding coordinator the day ran smoothly from start to finish and we were able to just enjoy our special day with no worries. All of the staff were fantastic and I would strongly recommend it to other couples looking for a venue for their wedding. We look forward to going back to celebrate our wedding anniversary next year!
Wonderful Winter Wedding
By Tim Noakes, on 18 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Dec 2016
We held our wedding at Billesley Manor at the end of December 2016. We used the Winter Wedding package & it was excellent value for money. I really expected there to be lots of add ons & hidden extras & up-selling, but there truly wasn't. The day before our wedding we had a couple of issues with rooms for our guests, Naomi Wykes, our Wedding Co-ordinator dealt with the issues swiftly & professionally, as she did with the planning of our whole wedding, she made the whole experience enjoyable & stress free
Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, just exactly what we wanted, the staff were all so friendly & helpful & we didn't need to worry about anything. Evo (apologies if this is spelt incorrectly) the Manager acted as the Master of Ceremonies & took care of the whole day, the food was amazing, the portions very generous & the service impeccable. One of our guests enjoyed his main course so much, he asked for another & the staff were more than happy to oblige!
We would highly recommend Billesley Manor Hotel for a Wedding, our day was perfect thanks to Naomi & Evo.

We booked our wedding at Billesley Manor Hotel back in February 2016 to take place in the December of that year. Throughout the process of organising the event, the staff at Billesley Manor were nothing but courteous, helpful and organised! In particular, our wedding co-ordinator, Naomi, was truly outstanding; alleviating any stresses and worries sometimes associated with organising a big event.
Billesley was the ideal location for a Winter Wedding. Our ceremony took place in the regal Great Hall; complete with very large festive Christmas tree, large fireplace and mezzanine area where, in addition to our seated guests, some of our guests stood to watch the wedding take place. It was a truly lovely, historical and intimate setting!
Our reception took place in the topiary suite. If you visit, don't be put off by it's initial apparent blandness. For the wedding breakfast and reception, the walls were dressed with drapes and up-lighting which absolutely transformed the location.
So many of our guests commented on how impressed they were with the hotel and setting.
The hotel honeymoon suite was superb; 4 poster bed, lovely views of the grounds and one of the largest bathrooms I have ever seen!
In closing I can honestly say that Billesley Manor Hotel staff truly made our big day the best day of my [our?!] lives! If you are looking for a friendly, personalised and aesthetically beautiful location to get married in, this is for you. I can't thank the resident wedding co-ordinator and all of the staff enough. Thank you.
A wonderful winter wedding

My partner and I got married at this wonderful venue on 26th November 2016.
Where do I begin? My partner and I had started planning our wedding a year prior to our chosen date and even from the moment we first visited, we fell in love with the venue. It is surrounded by lovely lush greens, a well kept Topiary Garden, with the Manor itself beautifully preserved and presented.
Throughout the year of planning, we had many interactions with our Planner, Naomi Wickes, who was a beacon of excellent customer service throughout and ensured that both my partner and I had the best day.
From the ceremony, to the drinks reception to the sit down meal and evening event, Naomi ensured that everything went to plan for us and that all of our needs were met (this included cutting out 85 places names on the day as our printer had let us down on a delivery, twice). It really was the perfect day for both of us and I'd like to pass on thanks to her for making this happen.
Once handed over to the events manager (I think) James (who's surname escapes me now), he continued with the excellent customer service to ensure that both of us and our guests enjoyed themselves.
Our Wedding Breakfast was perfect, all food was incredibly presented, and wonderfully prepared, and is something I would recommend anyone who is planning on getting married here, tries.
All the hotel staff who helped many of our guests, were excellent, dealing with every query they had from our party with the utmost satisfaction.
I would highly recommend coming back to the Billesley Manor was everything was superb, a really enjoyable day with a great bunch of incredible staff.
A huge thank you ...

I was just going to email you to say thank you for a wonderful event!
The rooms were beautiful, the food was delicious and nothing was too much trouble for the staff! A special thank you for the gifts and card in my room. It was so kind of you and definitely helped with the pre-event nerves!
John met with me on arrival as requested and put my mind at rest that everything was in place and was there to answer any questions I had.
Overall a great weekend and thanks again for all your help with the planning this past year!
Wonderful experience menu tasting
By Chris, on 06 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 11 Jun 2016
Visited last night to do a meal and wine tasting for our wedding. Our meal was really lovely and inspires confidence for our wedding breakfast. Freddie and her team provided a great dinner service. We sincerely appreciated the help choosing wines and their feedback regarding the menu for our special day.
Wedding was the time of our lives
By Chris, on 06 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 11 Jun 2016
Had our wedding at Billesley in June and it was perfect. From beginning to end we were well looked after by Josh, Frankie and the staff. Upon arrival we had 4-5 people there to help us unload 3 cars full of wedding gear. Lots of coordinating behind the scenes with decorators, DJ, photographer and suppliers went completely unnoticed by us. On the day the staff were friendly, efficient and present to all guests.
Everyone loved the look of the venue and of rooms. The photographs look amazing.
My only criticism is that the bar needs improving. With only one small bar, service can be slow and the bar area quite crowded. It's also time to surrender the lager taps and bring in some real ale!
Overall, thank you for providing us with an amazing day in an amazing venue.
By Mrs Brewer, on 06 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 11 Jun 2016
We had a fantastic day. It really couldn’t have gone better. The timing flowed fantastically thanks to the guy who was running the day for us, he kept things on schedule perfectly and always to hand. We really had an incredible time with excellent food and service throughout both the Friday and Saturday. No one could really have done any more or been more helpful.
Thank you for all your help. We are so pleased we chose Billesley as our wedding venue. It really was a the best day of our lives and would never have been if you hadn’t been as thorough as you were going over everything up front and the staff on the day.
I hope I wasn’t too much of a pain, or hard work ? It can’t be easy dealing with us bride to be’s ?
Wedding was just fab!
By Tracey, on 06 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2016
Went to a wedding in June. the hotel was wonderful, lovely setting. food was very nice and staff were very helpful.We were guests of the the bride, but have been informed by the happy couple and their families that everything was perfect from start to finish.
The wedding was at 2pm. With a lot of guests staying the night ,it would have been better if the rooms were ready before that time so you could travel and then get changed on arrival. The hotel did try their best to have as many ready as they could before this time but all were ready by 3pm approx. If traveling far I would book in the night before. The rooms are well worth staying in for an extra night.
Room Tip: We were lucky to have a wonderful room over looking the gardens where the group photos were taken.
