    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.

    Boreham House's reply:

    This is an absolute scam these people booked a wedding took our free gift and then wanted to cancel every bit of information is listed on any email that is sent from enquiry through to the final email. After they received the gift they said they wanted to cancel because of covid, then that didnt work so they said their father had died, then they said it was because they could not pay 5 months and 3 months
    any excuse really after getting the gift. We agreed they could pay how they wanted to if they were struggling for the next year but to be honest it is sad that people like this try to scam us. If anyone wants to see how we work send in an enqiry and you will see quite clearly it is transparent regarding payments and why would someone first say covid, then death, then payment i will leave this to your discretion

    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.

    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

    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

    We had a fabulous wedding

    Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all of the team at Boreham House. We had a fabulous wedding and a lot of it was due the gorgeous venue and the weather was great. We has so many guests who have not been to Boreham House say how blown away they were with the House,Pavilion and Grounds. We are also grateful for the recommendation of your preferred caterers and we were not disappointed at all.
    Many thanks to your help and guidance,especially a timely reminder about tables and chairs needed in King Henry V111 Suite which would have never occurred to us!
    Hope all goes well for all your future weddings at Boreham House.
    Best Wishes
