Escot is stunning!
Thank you so much for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. Escot is stunning! The service was fantastic, such quick service to get the food out. Thank you also for squeezing our cousin in last minute. We would thoroughly recommend your venue to anyone! With so much love and blessings.
Sam & Bethany wedding
Thank you for the extra guest you kindly fitted in at the last minute. Many thanks once again for a truly memorable day it was far more than we had hoped for.
Everything we asked for was possible
The most perfect day
Wonderful wedding day despite the snow
The house is a fabulous place!
On the day of the wedding, we were so pleased with every aspect of how you managed things from your side. All the things that we had discussed in our planning happened without us needing to do anything. In particular, the reconfiguration of the rooms was done without affecting the flow of the day at all, and really allowed us to make the best use of the wonderful rooms. Also, our vegan guest commented that the vegan canapes were a lovely touch, and the service of her meal fitted in with the other guests and didn’t make her feel conspicuous or an inconvenience. The rest of the food was really fantastic, and we god so many positive comments from our guests. Thank you also for making sure we each got some canapes during the post-ceremony melee – we would not have wanted to miss those honey and mustard sausages!
All in all, we had a wonderful day, and our guests did too. We have had so many comments on what a beautiful place Escot House is, and what a relaxed day it was, so we thank you and all your staff for welcoming us and for all your hard work.
A wonderful day
A really relaxed venue
Beautiful setting, excellent food
Food was fabulous, service excellent and Escot House looked incredible. It was the wedding of fairytales. We have had wonderful comments from all our guests.
It was just the most perfect day and we would like to thank Lucy, her family and her staff for the efforts they went to, to achieve that.
The best day of our lives
We would love to recommend Escot to our friends as a wonderful wedding venue.
Together with the house and beautiful garden it was the perfect venue. We could not have asked for more. It was a great day which was enjoyed (very vocally) by all.
We could not have wished for a better day
We are also grateful for all of the advice given to us in the lead up to the wedding. it was a wonderful day - we could not recommend Escot highly enough. Thank you.
