Our Amazing Wedding
Venue Service

By Katharine and Alan Dixon, on 13 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 13 Oct 2018

We had a fantastic time at our wedding and it was all with the help of the staff at Deans Place especially our Wedding coordinator Katie. Katie made sure we had everything we needed for our special day and was always available to answer and questions we had. The food was outstanding both at our wedding and the breakfast in the morning. The rooms were comfortable and are currently being refurbished. We would defiantly recommend a stay here and also a function as well as a meal. Katharine and Alan

We had our wedding at deans place last weekend. We viewed many locations however found deans to be the perfect location for our special day. The staff were helpful and friendly from the start, we dealt with two organisers our dedicated planner for the day was Chelsey and she was fantastic. Made sure everyone was where they should be, rooms were decorated etc. Nothing was ever to much trouble for deans place. We would both highly recommend the venue, there guest rooms are decorated to a high standard also making he stay a pleasureable one.

Our Wedding at Dean's Place was a magic and memorable occasion. Katie our wedding coordinator was very professional and also super friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We were lucky enough to have fabulous weather so our wedding took place in the Wedding Garden, such a beautiful setting. All our guests mentioned how well organised the whole day was and everyone young and old had a wonderful day.

The day we always wanted to be married
Venue Service

By Ashley and Frances Bricknell, on 26 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2018

From the beginning the team at deans place hotel and in particular the events team were brilliant, from initial meeting and showing the venue to booking and making adjustments for the day! Jo was fantastic thought out the later planning and she also was there to make sure the day ran well..and it could not have been smoother! She liased with us as we made alterations and amended guests as we got closed and some changes were made. We had some good meetings where the entire day was planned out with how we wanted it and also accommodated other arrangement such as my best man needed a projector for his speech...There package was great and included so many little things that you can Do without having to collect and buy for a single use on a day and took some of the pressure of planning away. They worked closely with all of our other professionals who were involved in the day to ensure they were set for the day. Again Jo and the team were very calm and delt with informing myself and changing things around seamlessly over the day. The food was fantastic and everyone enjoyed it from what I heard. The day was so nice and even though my wife and I didn’t stop moving it didn’t feel chaotic or hectic at all, and there was always someone around to get us another drink or a chair for 30 seconds! Thank you to the whole team again and we will look forward to returning for our anniversaries!

It was a pleasure to stay with you.

To all the Staff at Deans Place, I attended the wedding of Ali & mike (in fact I was the Matron of honour), I stayed on Thursday and was joined by family members on Friday who also stayed. I just wanted to thank you all for making my stay & the day very special. You all were so pleasant, helpful and made the time extra special. Nothing was too much trouble and I would highly recommend Deans Place to anyone who was visiting the area. Plus your breakfast was delicious. Please pass on my thanks to all of your staff, it was a pleasure to stay with you.

By Rachel and James Smith, on 09 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 21 Oct 2017

Dear Rachael, Sam and Debbie, We just wanted to say the biggest thank you to you and all of the rest of the team at Deans Place for helping to organise and make our wedding the most amazing and memorable day. We are both still coming back down to reality and in some ways the whole day seems like a distant dream already! All of our guests commented on how lovely the hotel and the surroundings were plus how relaxed the day seemed which is mostly down to you, Rachael and your team on the day. The food was also amazing and we still cant get over how huge the cheese tower was! We will definitely be coming back in the future, maybe to celebrate a wedding anniversary! Thank you again and we'll look forward to coming back again! Best wishes, Rachel and James (Smith!)

By Anne & Derek Pope, Parents of the bride, on 09 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2017

Dear Everyone, Our daughter Kathryn got married at Deans Place on Saturday and we are emailing to thank you all for everything that was done to make the day memorable for us all. Your attention to detail throughout the day greatly contributed to the smooth running of the event (Karen from Wealden Cake Company commented on how accommodating everyone was and said it was a real pleasure to come to Deans Place) and allowed us to relax and enjoy ourselves, despite the awful weather. Everyone said how good the food was and we were very impressed by your restaurant staff. We particularly liked the fact that you went to the trouble of inviting those who stayed to breakfast altogether which rounded off the event nicely. With kind regards, Anne and Derek Pope.

We had the best day, it was just perfect.

By Michelle & Paul mason, on 09 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2017

We had the best day, it was just perfect. The weather was amazing and all the staff were outstanding including Debbie and Sam. The whole way through our planning and organisation it was you both that kept me updated and answered my many questions with prompt friendly emails. This makes such a difference. Our final meeting with Debbie was so reassuring and Debbie was just so friendly, it was like talking to a friend. On the day Debbie was great, I didn’t have to think about a thing, so thank you so much for making our day go so smoothly. Everyone said how lovely the venue was and what a perfect setting. I would highly recommend you for anyone thinking of getting married at a super country venue. So a big THANK YOU from Paul and myself.
