The Perfect Venue in Every Way

We had the perfect wedding at Deer Park and I cannot fault a thing. Absolutely amazing.

It goes without saying, the venue and grounds are stunning.

The organisation was outstanding. Our wedding coordinator, Sophia, was there every step of the way. In the lead up to your wedding you typically get a 6 month, 3 month and 1 month check-in with her to discuss details and check things are on track. You'll cover the high level things like 'how many guests are you having', 'who are your suppliers', but you'll go through every little detail. Such as what entrance song do you want, where is parking, is there a changing room, is there a luggage storage. There are so many things to think of, but Sophia and the team will have you covered at these meetings. After each meeting we always went away feeling relaxed and reassured - which is a huge thing because with so many things to organise it can get stressful, but you would attend these check-ins and then think 'okay this is all in hand, we got this'.

On the day, you can pay a small fee for the venue to setup the wedding breakfast room according to your specifications, so that you don't have to be stressing about that the morning of. This was the best decision and all we had to do was hand over the supplies (table names, favours, menu cards etc.) the day before to Sophia and then it was all in hand.

The night before the wedding, we stayed in 'The Shed' and 'The Playhouse' and so in the morning Sophia came to both residences to check in on the Bride and Groom to give updates and check everything is all okay.

For food, we offered a menu of 3 choices. Deer Park provide you with a list of their 'seasonal options' from which you can choose from, but they also offer the ability to customise it. For example we ended up having a roast beef option that was completely 'off menu' from their options. I also elected to alter their fruity cheesecake to be a Biscoff cheesecake, which they obliged and absolutely smashed it. And also an important note is that Sophia and the Deer Park team were incredibly accommodating for a couple of our guests who had severe allergies, offering to adapt their specific meals, as well as maintaining the kitchen to be completely nut free. I know we're biased but it was genuinely the best wedding meal we've ever had and we had compliments from so many guests.

The rest of the day ran so smoothly. Sophia and the other coordinators on hand that day Ian and Mark were just spot on. There were occasions during the day where I'm sure we maybe ran over schedule with photos or other aspects, but we didn't have to worry as behind the scenes Sophia, Ian and Mark were still making it run seamlessly. The perfect hosts.

Thank you so much for a perfect day, and we really can't wait to return for one of Deer Parks evening dinners that they periodically host - a perfect way to relive the memories.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special!! We absolutely loved the Deer Park and had so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful the venue was, and we agree!
We were delighted with how smoothly everything ran. Thank you for all the time and effort you put in to help and guide us through all the details of the day. It is amazing to reflect on all the details that we discussed over the past months come to fruition. Thank you and all of the team at the Deer Park for being so accommodating and flexible on the day itself.

On top of such a stunning venue, the food was absolutely delicious! We really hope we will be able to visit again.

Massive thank you

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and everyone else at Deer Park for making our wedding day so special. We both still feel so emotional overwhelmed at how perfect the day as.

The emotion, love and laughter that filled the entire day stood out and every single one of our guests have said how incredible the entire day was. Every detail and effort that was made by yourself and the Deer Park team was incredible and we are so thankful.
We got so lucky with the weather! The food was exquisite.

I honestly cannot thank you all enough for helping to make Saturday easily the best day of our lives.

Wedding day beyond our dreams

Simon and I had a day beyond our dreams at the Deer Park and that was largely due to the superb work of you and the whole team. Every detail that we had requested was addressed perfectly, the team were happy, helpful and efficient. We loved that you were able to accommodate our specific requests - whether that be laying out the blankets on the lawn, being able to park Dad鈥檚 trailer overnight, moving in straw bales for the day (with the mess that they created).

Your own organisation and coordination was first class. All of our interactions were incredibly efficient, friendly, helpful, great suggestions..even the smallest details like responding promptly to my multiple emails!!!! Thank you for being so patient with us with the various room changes, guest number changes etc etc.

Huge thanks to the restaurant staff...yummy food, beautifully served and much appreciated by all our guests.

The Deer Park is so much more than a wedding venue. With the self catering house available the night before (a wonderful experience being able to get ready on site), the choice of indoor or outdoor wedding ceremonies, the beautiful orangery, the Treehouse as an extra special and romantic place for the night of the wedding, the incredible grounds, the outdoor pizza and dining area, the stunning walled garden and duck pond..we were able to capture some wonderful memories through our photos.

I could go on and on...

A HUGE thank you again to you and the whole team. We would highly recommend you and the Deer Park to anyone.

So many happy memories

There are not enough words to explain how thankful and grateful we are to you guys for helping us have an incredible weekend. We are so over the moon that we selected Deer Park and not sure how we鈥檒l ever be able to thank you - and the team - for absolutely everything you鈥檝e done for us! It was so fantastic that I think we鈥檙e still in shock! In a good way! Getting emotional just writing this!

Every single person who attended complimented Deer Park on service, standard of food, the rooms, the hospitality I could go on.
Honestly not a single negative!

We had such a good time. I remember dancing in the evening thinking this is a really great wedding and the reality hitting me that it was our wedding!!

We just wish we could do it all again. So many happy memories.

Eternally grateful - for everything, and all your support and guidance! And for putting up with last minute changes without a single stressed moment (not that we saw)!

Thank you again!

So many happy memories from our Special Day

Thank you so much to you and the team at the Deer Park our wedding day was just perfect and everything we wanted it to be. The venue was just stunning and the team so friendly and professional and ensured everything ran smoothly.
The food was delicious - so many of our guests commented how tasty, well presented all the food was especially the main beef dish served as part of the wedding breakfast. My favourite was the strawberry cheese cake! The hog roast in the evening was very tasty and a big hit again with our guests.
The tree house was wonderful... perfect place to wake up in as a new Mr & Mrs and the views were beautiful. So many happy memories from our special day at the deer park hotel, Thank you so much again.
Kindest regards
Mr & Mrs Pike

Just Stunning

Both myself and Marc had the best day ever and the venue of Deer Park made it incredible. So many of our guests commented on how stunning the setting was, how delicious the food was and how lovely and helpful all staff were. We will certainly be recommending you to all our friends and family.

We will certainly be back... I'm currently in negotiations with my new husband for anniversary meals and nights over every year!!! I'll continue working on that!

Thank you so much for looking after us over the past 8 months. We couldn't have done it without you. Your service has been top notch!

Would not change a thing about our day

Thank you so so much to you and your team. We are so glad we chose Deer park for our wedding, not only because of the stunning venue, but because of the service from you guys.

On the day you made all worries at ease and nothing was too much for us. Everything was planned to perfection and people were stunned by the venue and relaxed atmosphere we were able to create with you.

Your treehouse and squash court house were stunning and made the whole experience from the day before to the day after just so so special. It really made the whole experience having those facilities available.

The food on the day far exceeded our expectations. The presentation was just so creative and tasted amazing.

The suppliers you provided us with, again, exceeded our expectations. Particularly Gem; she did such an amazing job at achieving something different for us with our flowers and we are continuing to grow the succulents and bamboo as memoirs.

Finally thank you for all the last minute changes you managed with us, for making us feel comfortable and special right from the beginning to the end.

We honestly wouldn't change a thing about our day and I think that speaks volumes about your hotel and team.

We will be shouting about you to anyone that will listen. We have some friends getting married at Deer Park in the near future so we look forward to them sharing the same great experience we had.

Thanks again for everything and we look forward to visiting again soon,

Mr & Mrs Wood x
