    Wonderful July wedding!

    My daughter had her wedding reception in the Great Hall at Fanhams Hall Hotel at the end of July 2021. Before the event Lauren was really helpful and always available to answer any questions. All our guests keep saying how smoothly the wedding went which was largely due to our function manager, Olly, who was exceptional. The venue and grounds are beautiful and the photos look marvellous. The chef, Paul, came up with very good menu tweaks to deal with all our various food allergies and the food on the day was fantastic. Olly managed seamless delivery of any special dietary options and special drinks to the right people which was very impressive and was appreciated by all concerned. The staff without exception were friendly and helpful to both ourselves and our various suppliers throughout. Our daughter had a marvellous day, thank you to everyone at Fanhams!

    Fanhams Hall's reply:

    Hi Gaynor, thanks so much for your lovely review! We're so pleased to hear what a fantastic day Samantha and Gareth had with us. We look forward to welcoming you all back soon.

    If Carlsberg did weddings..

    If Carlsberg did weddings they would do it Fanhams Hall !! Had such an amazing day. From start to finish the hotel couldn't do enough for us and they both made us feel so special. Symphonie was so lovely in the build up to the wedding and ensured no stone was left unturned. On the day the whole event ran like clock work. The beer, the food, the grounds, in fact everything was so good. Special mention has to go out to James, who the day before and on the day worked ridiculous hours to ensure we had the most incredible day. He was amazing and we cannot thank him enough. Thank you to all the staff at Fanhams and Merry Xmas!! Melissa and Chad.

    So incredibly special

    We cannot thank all at Fanhams enough for making our day so incredibly special. Symphonie our wedding coordinator, was fantastic through out the year we were planning and was always available for questions and suggestions. As part of our package we had a menu tasting which was phenomenal, head chefs Russel and Paul were fantastic, and our wedding breakfast on the day was amazing. Olly and the team looked after us so well and ensured our day ran smoothly without any problems. All our guests commented on how stunning the venue was, how smoothly the day went and how fantastic the food was. It was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. Fanhams will always be so special for us and we’ll definitely be staying again!

    The most amazing wedding day

    We honestly had the best day ever. We are both so delighted we chose Fanhams Hall to host our wedding reception. I don't know where to start, everything was just perfect. One of my biggest worries was all the little details I had to hand over for someone else to pull together. I needn't have worried at all, from the moment we met James the day before our wedding for the run through, I knew he was going to make our day perfect. His organisation and attention to detail were incredible. His personal touches felt like we were being looked after by a friend. He video called me the morning of the wedding to show me what the room looked like all set up and set me pics as the suppliers had set up. The room looked amazing and was everything I wanted.

    James and his team coordinated the day wonderfully, nothing was too much trouble. The nicest touch was when we got up to our room , he had left us a couple of slices of our wedding cake and a lovely hand written note. We totally felt like we were being looked after by a friend, James was so lovely and a total pleasure to have around us on our special day.

    All of our guests have commented on how amazing the venue, food and service was. One of my Mum's cousins is in hospitality and manages high end hotels in London and said to extend at how stunning he thought everything was.

    And a massive thank you to Symphonie. She was such a delight to communicate with throughout the entire planning process, always helpful and prompt with communication.

    Thanks again to everyone for helping to give us the most amazing wedding day.

    Our dream wedding day

    Thank you so very much for helping us with our dream wedding day! Your whole team were super, but you and the guy who lead us through our wedding on the day (I cannot remember his name - sorry!) really went that extra mile for us. We couldn't have been more grateful for your hard work and patience. We hope you enjoyed your slices of wedding cake as much as we did!

    Our day was just magical

    Firstly I would just like to say the biggest thank you for everything you did, you were absolutely amazing and made our day perfect. Please also pass on my thanks to Florin, he was an absolute star on the day and made it run so smoothly. Without you both I would have been completely lost. Our day was just magical.
