Damian and Tasha were excellent members of staff who helped us throughout our wedding journey. Tasha was an excellent contact leading up to the wedding to sort any issues we had. Damian was our contact on our wedding day, he was fantastic! He was quick and nothing was too much for him to make our day so special! Thank you so much!!

Disappointed, understaffed and upset
Venue Service

By Emma Lewis, on 01 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Jun 2019

The 18 months run up we had a fair few wedding planners, however we has Tasha for the majority, she was lovely and made us feel as though our day would be what we had dreamt of! Unfortunately a couple of months beforehand it started to go pear shaped. We had a call to say that someone had exclusively booked out the venue the day before, so despite booking rooms to stay the night before, we couldn't stay there and were being moved out! We let it go and carried on with the plans, but we needn't had bothered as all plans, accessories and ideas never came together. The bar was never staffed and when it was they said they couldn't serve as they weren't bar trained, nothing we had discussed in the month running up was carried through as we were not made aware we would have an 'ops manager' running our wedding... Whom we had never met, never bothered to get to know our wedding and resulted in me spending my wedding day in tears. If I wrote everything out that was disappointing I would have to attach my 4 page complaint letter. To which an insulting offer of refund was made and were basically told if we didn't accept it they would withdraw the offer. Please please please look at other venues first, we will forever regret having our reception here and have now booked another one to have the day we really wanted. Make sure you get everything promised to you in writing as then staff go back and say they have never said it and make you to look like you are lying. Still to this day I get very tearful and the insulting refund has made this no better.

BIG BIG BIG THANK YOU

Most Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Soneji and Madlani, on 07 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019

Thank you so much!!! I’ve been meaning to email you this last week but got a little caught up. Thank you for absolutely everything, you were such a pleasure to work with and you helped us have the most perfect day. You were always so super patient with me, and having you there with us on the day was really nice. The staff and everybody at the hotel were all so accommodating and I would highly Recommend it as a wedding venue for future couples. Once I do get any pictures back I will definitely send them on to you.

Special day so wonderful.
Venue Service

By Matthew Napier, on 07 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 05 May 2019

Natassia Robinson is a phenomenal representative of your business and services. She made every effort to ensure the everything was as easy and painless as possible from the moment we met her, throughout the entire planning process, the actual day and even after the event. As well as the beautiful venue, Natassia was an integral part of our decision to chose the Wokefield Estate. I cannot thank her enough for her support, advice and her hands on role in delivering what was a 99% perfect day. I only wish she could have stayed on longer to enjoy the party. She totally over delivered on our expectations. Also special thanks to Chef Peter and his team who were extremely welcoming and fully open and supportive of our food requirements. Our exotic canapes and certain individual's dietary requirements were catered for perfectly and without fuss. Also special thanks to the toast master Simon who's experience in keeping to a tight schedule was invaluable. My only small criticisms are:- 1. The service was a little slow in getting to all of the guests, but this may have been to our large increase in numbers. 2. The clear-up team were perhaps a little too keen and many guests ended up losing favours. We also lost 3 novelty hats which have sentimental value as they were hand made in Venezuela and then hand carried through several countries to the UK. This takes very little away from the occasion however and can't thank the whole team enough for making our special day so wonderful

Great Wedding Coordinator
Venue Service

By Lisa OKane, on 11 May 2019Date of Wedding - 04 May 2019

Tasha Eden was absolutely amazing and we cannot fault her at all. We had a few coordinators before her but the last 12 months of having her made things a breeze. The food was excellent and the grounds made a perfect backdrop for pictures.

Wonderful day
Venue Service

By Kim Wade, on 09 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2018

Natasha Eden who was our last coordinator was excellent she made us feel very reassured after all the initial mess ups and was very contactable and answered many of my random emails. She definitely knows her stuff and made us feel at ease. I feel really bad as I cannot remember the gentlemans name but the guy who ran our wedding on the day was amazing, he was very friendly and helpful he was still smiling at 1am and that we were the cleanest wedding. The guest relation manager (I believe Andrew) was amazing too as HMU breakfast got delivered an hour later than it was meant to, he delivered it himself and apologised for the delay. The guests even commented on the food and said how yummy it was so please pass on thanks to the Chef. The waiting staff were also very good.

Excellent Service

Thanks For All Your Help And Support
Venue Service

By Pietro & Catherine Caccaviello, on 28 Aug 2015

Thanks for all your help and support. We had a wonderful day and evening. Liz was amazing and then Kim and I think Rachel was the final manager? All were very attentive which was much appreciated. I'm so pleased it all came together so well. We are currently at the airport awaiting our flight. We look forward to returning for our anniversary!
