Simply The Best

Boreham House could not have helped us more. Teresa was fantastic there every step of the way even when we had issues . I called her several times at 11.00 at night and she did not complain. The venue is amazing the food excellent and staff the best. We had 280 people for our sit down and the food was amazing piping hot served in good time . I would recommend this venue to anyone thank you Boreham, Teresa, Lisa, Julie and the rest of the team

Unfortunately not what you would expect

We got married here and on the wedding day had people been shown around and the owner actually came out and removed the sweet cart (you get very little time). Once you've paid up, the communication and services becomes very different (shall we say)! Paying over £25,000, we wish we had gone somewhere else now.

Avoid dealing with managers who don't know their own policies.

I would not recommend getting involved with the ladies at Boreham House. After visiting the venue and sitting down to speak to the Sales and Marketing Manager, Charlotte, we were told of a payment plan that would find us paying off the venue in instalments - everything seemed great and we were happy with going ahead so we paid the £2K deposit a week later to secure our date. A few days after paying the deposit we were sent a contract that read that the remaining balance of £10K was to be paid FULLY 5 months prior to the wedding - having not agreed to these terms I emailed Charlotte directly only to be passed over to someone else. They told me that their terms and conditions are clearly stated on their website which is true but also admitted (over the phone) to the information they falsely provided - they were apologetic to start with and now, having not signed anything, requesting a refund for the legitimate reason that they have provided me with false information that I would not have agreed to - I am being ignored and have had no communication with. I have emailed several times to address this issue and have had no fair treatment in the situation since they verbally agreed to a different payment plan. In hindsight I should not have paid the deposit without having received the contract but I expected fair treatment considering the wedding was over a year away and they suffered no financial loss with me deciding to cancel.

Amazing Venue & Staff

What an amazing day we could not have done this without the support of the whole team at Boreham House. We have waited for our wedding for so long and the whole process of changing dates was made easy by Boreham House they helped and supported us all of the way. The Service that we got was second to none even though it must have been just as stressful for them as us. Teresa & Jules could not do enough for us . Our day was worth waiting for it was amazing. Thankyou

Happily Ever After

Hi Amanda and Boreham House team,

Hope you are well! Kiren and I have just come back from our honeymoon and it was amazing! (Its so nice to not have to plan a wedding - so much free time!)

We wanted to send a message of thanks to the team at Boreham House and yourself!

Firstly, a thank you for all the viewings and advice prior to the wedding and your endless advice on what would work and discussing options. We appreciate the team being so patient and allowing us to have numerous viewings/meetings to help plan our day.

Secondly, a thank you for storing all the extra stuff we required on the day itself! We know it was a lot but that really helped alleviate a lot of the stress my brother and Kiren's dad had!

and finally and most importantly thank you for the wedding day itself; coordinating, ensuring suppliers did their job and helping to keep our wedding running smoothly and on time!
It truly was an unforgettable day for both Kiren & I and Boreham House was the perfect venue for the start of our 'happily ever after.'

With love,
Roshni & Kiren

Our Special Day will stay with us for a life time!

If we could give this place more than 5* we would and anybody that knows us will know that we would not leave a good review unless we meant it.
Our wedding at Boreham House was a dream come true from start to finish. We fell in love with this place from the moment we saw it and are so glad we chose it to be our wedding venue. We had the perfect day and not only is it the most stunning venue to look at, but the staff are truly wonderful, and nothing was too much trouble for them. They helped us so much from the planning to the actual day and not once did we have to chase for anything.
A big thank you to Teresa, Amanda and Jules for all your help in the planning and a special thank you goes to Gemma and Paul for looking after us so well on the day and the morning after we could not of asked for more and the memory of our special day will stay with us for a life time xx

An Amazing Experience

Dear Boreham House,

Now that the craziness is over I’ve finally managed to find the time to write you a much awaited huge thank you.

From the moment we visited Boreham House last year in May, my wife and I both knew that it was “the venue” we wanted to hold our special day in. We were blown away by the beauty of the manor house, the stunning grounds but most of all by your generous customer service which meant we didn’t have to search far and long and it ended up being the only venue we viewed.

On a separate note, I would like to thank you Teresa for going above and beyond in accommodating our personal needs. It was really kind of you for reaching out to me directly and understanding the difficult situation I was in, allowing us to change our wedding date as well as ensuring my sister had a safe space to rest. This lifted a huge weight off my shoulders at a very stressful time.

I never imagined that we would be able to turn everything around in such a short space of time but because of your compassion and amazing team effort, everything went beyond what we had ever imagined.

Thank you so much for making our special day such an amazing experience, it went smoothly throughout the day and ended up being a day we will cherish forever.

I would recommend your venue a million times over to our nearest and dearest.

Yours faithfully,

Rahul & Asuma

Dear Jessica,
Thank you and all of the team for your support on and leading up to our wedding day on 30th July 2018. We had such an amazing day, and everything really did go so well, thank-you for that! (Even if James and I were running a bit late throughout the day - sorry!). So many people have commented on how lovely the food was on the day, especially the lamb which was do tender. Please pass our thanks to Chef and Team, and apologise as I believe there was a lot still left over from the BBQ in the evening as everyone was so full.
Thank-you again so much for such an amazing wedding day!
With very best wishes,
Hazel & James, Mr & Mrs Archer
