Best Day Ever!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Bird, on 11 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 23 May 2019

Thank you so much to the lovely team at Farnham Castle for making our wedding the most magical day. In the lead up Heather made the whole process easy and relaxed. On the day itself Dan was incredible, making everything look seemless. We truly couldn't have asked for anymore, you were incredible. Thank you so much x

Completely and Utterly the Best Day Ever!
Venue Service

By Cat & Rob, on 13 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Nov 2018

We just wanted to say how much fun we had, and completely and utterly the best day ever yesterday. Everyone has been commenting on how nice the venue was and how lovely the staff were. Totally brilliant - and you really made the whole thing very easy for us from start to finish in terms of all preparation and planning. So much so that the day itself was an absolute breeze! I am sure there was much hard work going on behind the scenes, but from front of house it looked effortless. The rain didn’t put a damper on it, and I am hoping for some good rain shots as people cowered under bouquets and other useless rain-shielding implements! When Tom releases the photos we will send you a couple of the best ones. Thanks once again for making our best day happen! Cat & Rob

An Absolutely Fantastic Day!
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Callaghan, on 11 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Oct 2018

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the team at Farnham Castle. We had an absolutely fantastic day! Our guests have been commenting all morning about it being the best wedding they’ve been too. A big thank you to Dan as well! He kept everything running like clockwork. Thank you. We’ll definitely be coming along to one of the Farnham Castle events sometime soon to relive the magic.

Run to Perfection!
Venue Service

By Kelly and Harry Turner, on 11 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Sep 2018

Myself and Harry just wanted to send over a huge thank you to you all for making our day go so perfectly on Friday 21st September. Everything seemed completely seamless and just run to perfection. A special thank you to Heather, Dan, Mike, Neil, and Louise for all their help running up to and on the big day, nothing was too much trouble and that is truly appreciated. All our guests have been raving about what a beautiful venue it is (quite rightly so ??) and how organised everything was. There has also been many many compliments on the food, the phrase “to die for” has been used quite a lot! So a big thank you to the chefs for creating such an amazing feast. It was such an amazing day that we wish we could do it all over again! You have certainly given us some beautiful memories. All of our thanks, Kelly and Harry Turner

Now we’re back from our dream honeymoon, we wanted to say a big thank you for hosting the best day of our lives!

I attach a couple of photos which we’re happy for you to use for marketing purposes should you wish to. Many thanks again Mr & Mrs Mills

Thank you for making our wedding so magical
Venue Service

By Francesca and Matt, on 13 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Sep 2018

We both wanted to say the most massive thank you to everyone for making our wedding quite so magical (and taking all our stresses away!). We had the best day imaginable and know all of our guests did too. They all thought the venue and all staff were truly amazing and raved about the food! A very special thanks to Giulia and Dan and to everyone else who was working on the day (and the next day trying to get all of our stuff together - who knew we had so much!). Thank you very much again! Francesca and Matt

Such a Magical Day!
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Rayner, on 11 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2018

We had such a magical day on August 3rd and thank you so much Allie and Dan for looking after us so so well. I did not worry about a single thing on the day so by deepest deepest thanks to you. I have attached some photos that show off the beautiful castle in all its glory and some of the many cranes! It was so nice to see them hanging up in the bar- what a great idea. I bet you never want to see a crane again! xx

We cannot thank you and the team at Farnham Castle enough for everything you did to make our wedding day a dream come true!! It was the best day of our lives and we will never forget it. We wish we could do it all over again!! The venue, staff, catering and accommodation were first class and we’ve had so many comments from guests saying what an amazing day it was!!! Thank you so much for everything......I’m going to miss our emails too! Farnham Castle will always hold a very special place in our hearts and we will undoubtedly return for visits in the future (if that’s ok).

Fairytales do come true
Venue Service

By Lucy Coe, on 06 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Nov 2017

We booked Farnham after looking at several other venues across Norfolk, Oxfordshire, Surrey and London. We instantly fell in love with the beautiful venue and the all of the staff were so warm and welcoming. It ticked all of our boxes where other venues failed. They were amazing in the build up to the wedding with their organised planning and the day itself was perfect. It ran so smoothly, we didn't have to worry about anything. Staff went above and beyond to help if we did have any issues. The food was all amazing. All of our guests haven't stopped complimenting us on it, even as far as saying it was the best food at any wedding they have been to. I can't recommended Farnham castle enough. The venue is stunning, with great accommodation on site, fantastic food, wonderful staff that make sure you feel like a princess all day. We had a perfect day and wouldn't change a thing. We are just sad we can't do it all again.

Perfect Day!
Venue Service

By Claire and Chris, on 11 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2017

Chris and I had such a perfect day yesterday! Everyone at the Castle was so lovely and ensured our day operated smoothly and that we had the best time possible. So many guests commented on the quality of service and food, which really was so fantastic. Please give our thanks to Shaun - he was so helpful throughout the day and tried to organise a photobooth for us when the supplier failed to show. He was great! However thanks so much to you, we really appreciate all the work you did behind the scenes to keep it all running smoothly. Thanks also for doing the makeshift photo props for us - they went down a treat and guests loved them.

Thank you for the fantastic job you do!
