    Thank you

    We want to thank you and your team from the bottom of our hearts for everything you've done for us over the past year. The day was absolutely wonderful for everyone in attendance and the room looked more beautiful than we could possibly have imagined! We had so many nice comments from everyone who came along about the venue, the organisation and of course the wine.

    Very Happy with our choice

    We are delighted that we chose to host our wedding reception at Denbies. Dawn and the team were so helpful, calm and responsive during the planning process and helped us to create the atmosphere we wanted for our family and friends on our special day. I felt that we were given individual care and attention and that the team worked hard to include all of the little details we wanted without pressuring us into having extras or using particular suppliers.

    The amount of space was perfect for us and the venue looks great without much extra decoration. Even though the weather was not on our side there were lots of options for photography and space for everyone to relax. We appreciated how child friendly and accessible everything was.

    Being able to stay in the hotel the night before and enjoy their delicious breakfast was a real bonus and the more athletic guests and members of the wedding were able to do a muddy Parkrun in the morning before the wedding- great for the nerves I hear.

    Once we had settled on a venue it became much easier to relax and enjoy planning the day. I am very happy with our choice and look forward to being able to come back and visit in the future.

    A great day

    Our day on Friday was great. Everyone involved was just fantastic! Fergus and Rachel were amazing and so helpful and it was so good to know that they were there throughout the day. Everything was set up beautifully and the whole day was carried out brilliantly. We had so many compliments on the venue and the surroundings and about all the wonderful staff so thank you all so much for making our wedding day so special. We are so glad that we chose Denbies and thank you so much for helping us plan such a great day. We have already had friends and family tell us that they are planning weekends away to come back to visit Denbies and my grandad and his wife even did the wine tasting and vineyard tour on the Saturday after the wedding!

    Thank you

    I just wanted to thank you and all your staff including Rachel, Sam and Kelly for making our day so special and for making it go so smoothly. We had such a magical day, I still can’t believe it’s come and gone so quickly. All our guests were saying on the day and since that it was one of the best weddings they’ve been to and how well it flowed, so I’m sure Denbies has something to do with that. I think everything from the weather, venue, great service, wine and food was just perfect so we can’t thank you enough for everyone’s hard work!

    We loved having our wedding at Denbies

    ‘We loved having our wedding at Denbies and so did our guests! Dawn and the team were amazing throughout and their attention to detail in planning made the day run perfectly. We couldn’t recommend Denbies enough, it’s just a shame we don’t get to do it all over again.’

    Making our special day extra-special!

    We can only echo the reviews below - when looking at venues, Denbies stood out for us, and choosing this site was one of our best decisions of the year. The organisation was faultless and seamless, and nothing was too much trouble for them. Dawn guided us through our many questions and explained the process with humour and patience. The wedding evenings we attended were most useful in allowing us to choose suppliers and the staff accommodated our changes in attendees with no fuss. The tasting afternoon was well-thought through, and the only problem we had was selecting from the options available when all would have been excellent choices! Dawn always kept us informed and responded promptly to all our questions and concerns, and we now think of her as a friend. They were keen to make sure we were comfortable with the details of the day, and nothing was too much trouble for them, with a very helpful and informative briefing session on the day before. On the wedding day itself, everything ran like clockwork, with Rachel, Mike and Fergus ensuring that the day was truly memorable, for all the right reasons - always available and reliable, but never obtrusive. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them, and hope your day is as marvellous as ours was!
