Our perfect day
By Georgia & Jeremy, on 22 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2017
Deans Court is a hidden gem, as soon as we saw the venue we knew we had to have our wedding here, it's stunning.
Jonathan and Amy were very helpful in the planning and nothing was too much trouble.
We were very lucky and had beautiful weather so we had our ceremony overlooking the lake. Our guests enjoyed the south lawn with post ceremony drinks and lawn games. The wedding breakfast was delicious as was the bbq in the evening. Kelly-Marie made our beautiful bouqets with flowers sourced from Deans Court gardens. Amy made sure everything ran smoothly and we couldn't have had such a glorious day without her making sure it was perfect in the background. We would not change anything about our day, it was everything we imagined it would be and so much more.
A Perfect Wedding Venue!

The whole team at Deans Court made our day absolutely amazing! It was a joy to plan a very special day with such a remarkable team. Jonathan and Julia were able to accommodate everything we wanted and nothing was to much hassle. Julia took all the hassle and stress away for us on the day and left us with a day we will remember with only happy memories. I cannot recommend this Venue and team highly enough.
Memorable, fantastic wedding!

We cannot recommend Deans Court enough to other people planning their wedding. Our day was full of fun, laughter, in a fantastic setting - supported by an excellent events team.
From start to finish Jonathan was highly efficient, friendly, patient and across all details to help us create a very special wedding day. Due to his support, we pulled off a fantastic event despite organising everything from our home in Singapore - over 6,700 miles away. He patiently answered all of our many questions and nothing was ever too much trouble. On the day, he coordinated everything and fully briefed his team to make the day run like clockwork. Having Jonathan and his team on hand is a huge benefit above and beyond the other venues we looked at – the team made the whole experience a joy and stress free.
We hardly need to up-sell the venue as the photos speak for themselves! Our guests were blown away by the grounds and the house. Unfortunately we had rain on the day, but thanks to Jonathan’s Plan B we were able to use the house and guests enjoyed spending quality time together.
Our guests also loved the in-house catering from Deans Court – the quality and creativity of the food was excellent. Veggie guests were particularly pleased not to have the same standard fare and none of our guests went hungry.
We also wanted to recommend the cottages on site at Deans Court. It was such a beautiful setting for me and my bridesmaids to stay, get ready together and catch up after the event. The cottages were thoughtfully equipped for all our needs and we felt very spoilt to stay in such a special setting.
Thank you again Jonathan and Deans Court for a memorable, brilliant wedding day!

What a perfect venue! From start to finish Jonathan and his team were so friendly and professional and really put us at ease. They are really on top of everything, in advance and on the day, leaving you to relax and enjoy yourself. The venue itself is stunning. The marquee and grounds are beautiful. Not much decoration is needed as the location itself is so attractive. We used Kelly-Marie who is the recommended florist to provided wildflowers for our decoration and we can’t recommend her enough. Finally all of the food was delicious and bar was really well run. We loved our day and it was stress free and fun thanks to the great team at deans court. I can’t recommend this place highly enough for a perfect day!

Had my wedding here in June 2017 and was absolutely perfect! The venue speaks for itself on how gorgeous it is, but on top of that the staff before and on the big day were amazing! Made the whole process so so easy and enjoyable! The food was delicious (canapés, lamb, cheesecake) Would recommend to anyone wanting a stress free and beautiful wedding! (everyone!) Thank you Team Deans Court! We just got our wedding video back too and we got to relive the whole day again!
Wonderful wedding 20.5.17
By McGregor, on 25 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 20 May 2017
Deans Court is truly a spectacular venue with exceptionally helpful staff and owners. The whole process was wholeheartedly made easier by Jonathan and Amy who were always available to speak to via email/phone call which eased the huge task of organising a wedding! I would recommend, if possible, renting the three cottages as this really added to our experience. The accommodation was well equipped, in a beautiful, quiet location with lovely views. We used the Gatehouse for all of our friends and hosted a dinner party as it is the perfect size to do so, whilst our families stayed in Apple and Plum cottage.
The day ran smoothly and Amy sorted a few requests on the day, nothing was too much bother. The sun shone all day and the backdrop was beautiful. We used a variety of areas within the grounds for photographs.
We plan to return to the Gatehouse soon!
Thanks very much Chloe & Calum McGregor.
Our day was simply the best
By Lucinda Watkinson, on 03 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 06 May 2017
The place is peaceful and romantic, a hidden gem! It didn’t matter where we looked there was another beautiful back drop in the grounds of this beautiful country house. Jonathan was our contact to start to organise our day, even to congratulations post honeymoon. The personal touch means a lot to us. Everything was simple and easy to arrange, there are plenty of choices and options to make it your day. Jonathan was always available for a call and email replies were prompt. We had a second visit to Deans Court, as we chose to taste our wedding breakfast with the in-house caterers. They didn’t disappoint and they are one of our biggest compliments from our guests. And there was plenty of attention to detail on the lead up to our day and the day its self. Julia personally welcomed us to Deans Court on our day, greeting us as the car arrive in front of the house with a glass of champagne. They made the table arrangements a breeze and the logistics of store all the packages & bags for our items seamless. The morning after our wedding Deans Court had packed up all of our decorations and wrapped up all of our vases from the centre pieces. We hired Apple cottage over the weekend of our wedding and stayed overnight after the wedding. The location is very quiet, just what we needed. Our day was simply the best; made by the wonderful team at Deans Court, plenty of photo opportunities, beautiful grounds with attention to detail, a delicious wedding breakfast overlooking the tranquil lake followed an evening of dancing. We can’t thank Jonathan, Julia, Kelly-Marie and the team at Deans Court enough. They helped us make lifetime memories which we fondly look back on and smile about.

From start to finish Deans Court has been an amazing venue. From our initial "look around" to sitting down and finalising all the nitty gritty we can not fault any part of the venue.
Jonathan was extremely helpful and understanding, He has the experience to provide some excellent recommendations and is also willing to work with you to make everything perfect.
We also recommend Kelly for any flower requirements you have. She works in the local coffee shop and again knows what works well and provides brilliant ideas.
On the day itself Jonathan ensures the whole day goes swimmingly, Any last minute changes to the timetable he runs with and takes all of the worry out of things. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly also.
We used Deans Court for all of our food during the day, including cheese board in the evening. Food was outstanding throughout, we had a few guest who had some special dietary requirements, these were catered for without hassle.
All of our guests during the day and after have told us what a fantastic venue Deans Court was and how good the staff were. We can not recommended them highly enough and would love to do the whole day again. Deans Court thank you
A fabulous day!!
By Jenny, Mother of the Bride, on 12 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2016
A massive thank you to you and all your top team for a fabulous day!! Gorgeous from beginning to end, in every way - stunning venue, great styling and delicious catering - all supported by happy friendly staff, and led by an ever-present, calm and wise events manager. We had complete confidence in your plans, and even the brief shower became an asset spending some minutes in the lovely house.
Thank you for your professionalism throughout. Just wish we could do it all again next weekend!
The service all day was excellent!
By Paul, Father of the Bride, on 12 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 25 Jun 2016
The service all day, from all the staff, was excellent. Many guests have commented very positively about the day, and specifically about the high quality of the canapés and the meal in the marquee, so please pass that on to the Chef and the team - getting out 50+ cheese soufflés of that quality is no mean feat.
Thank you too for all your assistance over the past 12 months or so - you have done yourself and Deans Court proud.
Wedding July 18th 2015
By Chris & Emily Moore, on 22 Jul 2015
I honestly can not rave enough about our wedding venue & staff!
Not only does Deans Court offer a fantastic setting but all the staff & especially Jonathan were fabulous. Our special day was completely stress free! We loved every moment and every detail was catered too.
The grounds are stunning and you can hire the main house for your reception drinks. We also took up on the large garden games for the guests which were a hit!
We rented for (the weekend)the cottages (bridal party) & the gate house (grooms party) which completely catered for everyone's needs and they are only a 30 second walk away from each other but one is behind the grand gates! So you can say goodnight without out the worry of bumping into each other before the ceremony. We (the bride & groom) stayed in the shepherds on the wedding evening hut which was so quaint and perfect.
We opted for a BBQ sit down and the food was brought to the tables rather than guests queueing up- a huge tick in my book!!! Plus it was really yummy! Also plenty of compliments on the wine & pimms!
We would do it all again and we wouldn't change a thing!!!

Incredible venue, location and service. We had an amazing day. Agree with everything that has already been said! Deans Court is an absolutely stunning place and we couldn't recommend it more. Even though we didn't necessarily have the best weather all day, the beautiful surroundings shone through and was a hit with all of our guests. Jonathan, Kelly-Marie and the team were fantastic in both the planning and smooth-running of the day. Everyone was very personable throughout. We can't wait to go back and visit.
