    Finally Married

    We booked a ceremony and wedding breakfast with Wokefield that unfortunately we had to cancel due to lockdown. Our experience with Wokefield from day one was positive. We Had Tasha as our wedding planner and she was so friendly and helpful, always happy to help. As soon as the government said weddings could not go ahead, Wokefield contacted us and made that whole process easy to handle. When weddings were allowed again we contacted Wokefield again so we could just do a ceremony and again the customer service was great, friendly staff who are happy to accommodate your needs. On the day they gave us a golf buggy to be able to take our wedding photos and a nice member of staff called Bevin drove us around and helped us on a very hot day. I would highly recommend Wokefield as a wedding venue, it is picturesque and the staff really do make the process easy in what can be a stressful time.

    Big Thank You

    We wanted to say a big thank you for all your help in making our wedding such a fab day! We enjoyed every minute and really appreciated knowing that all the arrangements were in such safe hands and that all the small details were taken care of ?? We have had lots of comments from our guests about how much they liked the venue and how good the food was! I did also want to pass on particular thanks to Helen who coordinated the wedding breakfast - it was so well organised and the tables were set up beautifully (I couldn't have done it better myself!).

    Firstly yourself for being with us since the first booking and putting us at ease after a bad experience with De Vere Latimer Estate, even little things on the day like getting a meal changed for Karl's step dad as he ordered the wrong thing and helping my mum with her corsage. You made getting married 3 hours away from where we live so easy. You were always our first point of contact and always got back to any requests as quick as possible. You really were amazing!
    Damian, he could not do enough for us, anything we asked for he made sure he sorted it. The restaurant on Friday was fully booked but he made sure he got us a table. Again with getting Karl a slot to play golf. He never made us feel like anything was too much. We has asked for Karl's dad to have coke on the table for the wedding breakfast as he can't have alcohol due to medical reasons and Damian made sure it was on there ready for him, little things like this are what make the day special.
    Liam, same as above and he was really good at going through the paperwork with me and making sure they had everything down. He even took me through the wedding room at 11pm the night before so he could make sure everything was right.
    Rachel, she worked the bar and any time we were in the building she would come and have a chat and let us know little tips on how things have worked for previous weddings to give us some ideas, she even showed us the pop up bar on a previous visit so we could see it and we really appreciated everything she did.

    Extra Special

    The staff at the venue from the managers to the wedding planner, bar staff, waitresses etc all went the extra
    mile. All of our guests commented on how amazing the venue, grounds, service food and drinks were. I
    would highly recommend this venue for a wedding or likewise event. They really made our big day extra
    special for us.

    Disappointed, understaffed and upset

    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.

    Best Day of Our Lives

    We had our Civil Wedding and Engagement ceremony at this beautiful De Vere hotel earlier this year and we had the best day of our lives. Everything ran so smoothly, the staff (in particular Andy from Operations and Natasha from wedding & events were great! The lengths they went to ensure our day was perfect was really appreciated and all our family and friends were very impressed with the venue. The hospitality I was provided for my stay by Andy was excellent aswell and he made me feel very at ease before my big day. Overall, I couldn’t recommend this venue enough, not only is it beautiful from the inside and outside but the staff are very accommodating. Thank you to the De Vere team.

    Most Perfect Day

    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.

    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
