Our Wedding Day.....
By Audrey Sunshine, on 11 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Mar 2017
We got married on Friday 24 March 2017 at Coombe Abbey. I’d booked the wedding 14 months in advance and as I lived locally, Coombe was one of the hotels on my list but I did also view other venues. I chose Coombe, which, admittedly, was slightly more expensive than others, however, the expression, “you get what you pay for” is completely true in this instance.
From my initial meeting with my Wedding Planner Joanne, I knew the day was going to run smoothly. She ran through every detail, nothing was too much trouble, calls and emails were returned in a timely manner, and whilst I realise I must have been one bride out of many that Coombe deal with at any one time, it never came across that way, I truly felt I got 100% attention at all times and that nothing was too much trouble.
A few days before the wedding, James, our Toastmaster got in touch. His expertise made the smooth running of the day that much better. I used the florist Coombe recommended, Michelle Lines and the flowers were breath-taking, would definitely recommend her.
Our Ceremony was in the Abbeygate and our Wedding breakfast was in the Courthouse, which was dual aspect so light flooded the whole venue. The day itself ran like clockwork, the staff were BRILLIANT, honestly, customer service must be top of their training agenda, it was second to none. The food was delicious and there was plenty of staff so no-one was waiting (it’s table service for drinks whilst in the Wedding Breakfast on the first floor of the Courthouse).
I would honestly 100% recommend Coombe Abbey as a wedding venue to anyone, we really had the most amazing day.

My partner and I, actually my wife and I. Were married here on Thursday 16th Feb, and wow what a beautiful, unforgettable day we had, perfect from start to finish.
We can not thank the team enough at Coombe Abbey Hotel, every single member of your team went out of their way to ensure, we and our guests were looked after, happy,content and above all felt special.
Our wedding breakfast food was superb, cooked to perfection and I'm not just saying that, I was a little worried as occasionally wedding food is a bit, well standard, but wow, your chefs blew our socks off. I even checked just to make sure it wasn't just mine and my wife's food that was awesome and nope, every plate that was put in front of our guests was of the same high standard.
It has been pleasure receiving messages from our guests, informing us our wedding was one of the best they have been too. Their messages have ranged from what a beautiful place, the detail, service, food and atmosphere was perfect, so thank you for giving us not only the best day but our guests too a fabulous experience.
Special thank you's to James our Master of Ceremony, Abi our Event Manager for the day, Joanne our Wedding Coordinator throughout the whole wedding planning process you are all stars.

We had our wedding at Coombe Abbey and cannot fault the venue or the team there. Jade our wedding planner was fab in the months before hand, and both Abby and toast master Scott were great on the day ensuring plans went smoothly. Food was lovely and care and attention was shown in setting up our ceremony rooms as we'd advised. We loved every minute (aside from the biblical weather!), would recommend to others considering Coombe Abbey as a wedding venue choice. Thanks for making our day so special.

I booked Coombe abbey for the renewal of our wedding vows, it was as a surprise for my hubby’s 60th birthday. The experience was amazing all the staff were great in keeping it quiet. Jade was great as our co-ordinator and everything was as promised, and more, nothing was too much trouble for any member of staff. The buffet was lovely and impressed our guests. Thank you for making it so memorable and apologies for the confetti in the Juliet suite x

My partner and I got married at coombe on 4th June which is now the best day of both of our lives! The venue looked breathtaking - all of our friends and family were 'wowed'! Jo was our wedding planner and couldn't have been more helpful, especially helping out with several last minute changes! The Abbeygate and Marquee looked stunning, we used all the recommended contractors From Jo and every single one of them were so easy to work with - especially as we live in London so it wasn't as if we could just pop in! We have opened our friends and family's' eyes to Coombe and several of them have said how they will be making their own trips there in the future to fully take in all the stunning grounds!
Fairytale Wedding of a Lifetime

From the moment we first walked in to view the venue nothing was too much trouble.
Without an appointment, Laura (one of their wedding planners), sat down with us to briefly to run through our ideas and to take us through their packages and deals. To say that their prices were surprising does not begin to describe how good a deal we were offered, even for an off-season wedding!
From booking through to the day itself, everything was handled by Laura and the team. Even though we ran late on a number of deadlines we never felt put under pressure and Laura's team could not have been more understanding.
On the day itself everything was handled by Coombe Abbey's Master of Ceremonies, Owain. He contacted us a couple of days before to go through final details and to discuss the entertainment for the day. As we were having a medieval banquet for our wedding breakfast, which includes a stage show, he wanted to make sure that we were happy with all the plans. The food was wonderful, flavoursome and plentiful.
In short, Coombe Abbey made what is supposed to be the best day of our lives exactly that. They so far exceeded our expectations that I wish I could give them more stars that I have. Nothing was too much trouble, every detail and whim was handled perfectly. They not only understood what our dream wedding was, but they made it happen. So many of our family and friends told us with total honesty that it was the best wedding they had ever attended and were only gutted that they hadn't found Coombe Abbey first. Many will be returning, and I have no doubt that my beautiful wife and I will be regular visitors again over the years.

Came to stay for a couple of days for a friend's wedding - what an amazing place this was. Totally blown away by the beauty of this gorgeous venue. The staff, service, food, amenities and accommodation are all absolutely stunning. Did our friend's very proud with the wedding service helped by Laura the Wedding Co-ordinator. Set in beautiful park grounds with their own gorgeous gardens where you can sit and look out over from the West Terrace. We will definitely be visiting again.
Thank you so much

I'm sorry I haven't been in contact before now to say thank you for doing such a fantastic job of organising an unbelievable wedding for us. Honestly could not have dreamed of anything better- the only problem was that it went too quick! We had a great many compliments from our guests about all aspects of the day- the rooms, decor, the food, arrangements, everything was just fantastic! We have sent a card to show a small display of gratitude, but we really can't thank you enough! Maybe the next event there will be the Christening party, haha!
Thank you again, you really did make our day the most amazing we could have hoped for.
Wedding at Coombe Abbey

We have just had our wedding at Coombe Abbey, what a fantastic exsperience. Venue, food and the staff were marvellous! We have been guests at this special hotel many times. The grounds and hotel are a magical place. We stayed in the The Lady Craven Suite - just amazing! Our guests were blown away.

Stayed at Coombe Abbey for a wedding. The staff were outstandingly helpful and friendly from checking in to checking out. Unfortunately we only stayed for 1 night, would have loved to stay longer. The hotel has a fantastic atmosphere and is full of medieval characterisitics. The wedding was stunning and felt very special with a master of ceremonies guiding everyone through the whole day. Food was brilliant, both for the wedding and breakfast the next morning. Rooms are beautiful.

We got married at Coombe Abbey just before Christmas and what a truly magical, amazing day we had. Nothing was too much trouble for Joanne, our wedding planner, and her team, they ensured everything was planned to the finest detail and ran like clockwork on the day. The Abbeygate for our ceremony was breathtaking, the surroundings are perfect and the Lady Craven is absolutely stunning . All the staff were fantastic, friendly, polite and professional and the food was superb - credit to the chef. John, our Master of Ceremonies was with us the whole day. He was fabulous, a true professional and gentleman. As we've got two children, having quite a few children attending the wedding and being so close to christmas, a visit from Father Christmas was arranged. Well, Tony Dipple - what a great Father Christmas you were! You made it so special for all the children and you really went that extra mile for us. Coombe Abbey really is a beautiful hotel. We can't believe we ever considered any other venue! All our guests had a brilliant time and are still talking about it. We only live down the road but can't wait to stay again!
Stunning Wedding Venue
By Kerrie, on 01 Jun 2012
We got married here and it was a truly unforgettable experience. The whole ambience of the hotel is superb. The rooms are very high standard as are the bathrooms, stunning hotel common areas and every detail seemed right. The food was out of this world. The beef literally melted in your mouth, the service was 110%. I cannot rate this hotel highly enough. It has never let us down. Thanks Jo, our wedding planner. You made the whole thing happen!!
All of our wedding guests were totally spellbound. It really made our wedding one of the happiest and memorable days of our lives.
