Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

By Nicki Lavell, on 21 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Nov 2018

We got married at Buxted on 2 November 2018 and it could not have been more perfect. The day was absolutely wonderful in every way. Kirsty initially and then Holly, our Wedding Co-Ordinators were always on hand to deal with any query or request and they made the planning much less stressful. The team on the day run by Mark were absolutely fantastic. They worked so hard to ensure the day ran smoothly. Our guests especially loved Mark and his fab sense of humour. The food was delicious and all of our guests were taken care of. I stayed at Buxted the night before the wedding with 14 of our friends and family and we were kindly provided with use of the Red Room for a private dinner which was lovely. Me and my Bridesman were also upgraded to a Suite which was just fantastic and felt like such a treat. We cannot thank each and every member of the team enough for making it the best day of our lives. Nicki and James Nott

What an amazing day
Venue Service

By Sharon Caille', on 02 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2018

From start to finish our day was made out of this world by Marc Desseaux & his team & Holly the events coordinator , nothing was too much & they paid attention to every little detail that was requested. Right down to one guest having to have their food pureed due to illness. Our day was eventful as we had all Different nationalities attending, English, French , Portuguese, Italian, Spanish & Broad Scottish. Marc Desseaux took it all in his stride Absolutely outstanding we would certainly recommend the venue & staff.

A stunning wedding venue
Venue Service

By Lianne Boorman, on 02 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 31 May 2018

I was impressed with how attentive all staff were from the day we made an enquiry to the checking out after the wedding. We had regular meetings with our wedding coordinator and were made to feel at ease and that no ask was too great. We visited independently prior to the wedding, first for a meal and then for cream tea and on both occasions we were treated so well. On the actual wedding day the staff could not have been better. Our master of ceremonies, Mark was amazing, he made me feel like the most important person in the world. The morning after there was another wedding being set up but we never once felt rushed to leave. Just the most amazing experience, fantastic memories made. I would highly recommend this as a venue for anyone's wedding.

Such a smooth operation
Venue Service

By Miles Holbrook, on 26 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 18 May 2018

We had a wonderful day which went so smoothly. We had a ceremony in the orangery which was beautiful and our reception in the ballroom. The staff blended into the background and seamlessly looked after everyone and moved items between rooms. We ran 40 minutes late with our photos and yet the kitchen was able to quickly send out the delicious food and keep us on time overall. Mark was an excellent master of ceremonies and couldn’t have been any more helpful as with all the staff including Kirsty who looked after us and our complex demands in the run up to the wedding.

Our wedding was everything we dreamed of!
Venue Service

By Mark and Lizzie McMahon, on 11 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Mar 2018

We had the most magical wedding day we could've dreamed of at Buxted Park Hotel. My husband and I were on a tight budget and so couldn't believe our luck to find out that the stunning venue fit within our price range. From that first meeting to the morning after the wedding, every single team member was faultless and the service exceptional - our Master of Ceremony, Marc, was just fantastic and kept the energy in the room alive throughout. We couldn't believe how much flexibility the staff allowed us, meaning we could really stamp our own personality on the day. But needless to say that the interiors are just beautiful and need little dressing up, allowing every single photo - no matter what room it was shot in - are absolutely gorgeous. The guests were also blown away by the delicious food - the lamb was a particular hit! From my husband and I, we would like to say a huge thank you, to all the team - caterers, waitresses, bar staff, receptionists, cleaners, organisers and those in the operations team - for truly making our wedding the best day and night of our lives.

A Magical Day and a wonderful venue!
Venue Service

By Erica and Peter Brownsell, on 07 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Mar 2018

From the start, we were treated with care and consideration. Everyone listened carefully to what we wanted and hoped. They set out what could be done within the confines of this special building and made all the accommodations that possibly could. The varied weird and wonderful diets of our guests were accommodated by the chefs in creative and delicious ways and on the day, every single guest felt welcomed, supported and entertained. Mark did a phenomenal job at keeping everyone to time and in the right place and on agenda, whilst delighting and amusing everyone! As a former customer experience consultant, i can be slightly critical and ‘on the job’ even on my own wedding day. We could not have been in better hands. Mark kept us out of the messy bits, but made sure we were consulted on key issues. Andrea was kind enough to offer us a great deal so we could stay another day and recuperate! The various waiters and bar staff were professional, kind, helpful and friendly. We cannot thank you enough for the effort and team work that made the collaborative circus epic that was our wedding, a pleasure! And Buxted itself - what a dream - what a beautiful job you have done on making it a serene, gorgeous, handsome, special and social space - bravo!

Truly Amazing!
Venue Service

By Stephen and Tara Payne, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2017

We were absolutely bowled over by the attention to detail, professionalism, kindness and care shown by every single member of staff at Buxted. We are completely aware that Buxted Park deals with weddings on a daily basis but we were made to feel as if we were the only people on the planet that day. The attention to detail and helpfulness leading up to the day itself, from wedding planner extraordinaire Holly, was second to none. We clicked with her immediately. She truly understood what sort of celebration we really wanted. The team on the day were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was thought of and our families and friends wanted for nothing. Marc is amazing at his job! Our guests fell in love with him and he corralled them excellently! They're not the easiest people to move on the best of days but he did it! Although there was a rumour that some of them weren't convinced he was French and that he was really from Peckham! He soon put that story straight and they loved it. I think it was James that stood with my daughter, Georgia, in the Oriental Bar before she walked down the aisle ahead of me. He took the time to calm her nerves a little and just chatted whilst they waited. She really appreciated that. The bar staff and waiting staff were excellent and made their jobs look incredibly easy. The food was incredible. The chef and kitchen staff did an amazing job. There was no hassle with turnaround. Amazing work. All of the staff at Buxted should be very proud of where they work. It is a lovely hotel and a wonderful building but it wouldn't feel like home without the people who work there.
