    The house and grounds are beautiful..

    We chose Fontwell House for our Wedding Ceremony and Reception as my dad (who is sadly no longer with us) was a keen horse racing fan and took my brothers and I as children to racing events here, thus creating fond memories of the past.
    .We knew as soon as we entered the house, which is steeped in character and ambience, that this is where we wanted to hold our wedding. The house and grounds are beautiful and create a lovely backdrop for photographs.
    Our thanks go to Melanie for helping us. create more wonderful memories and allowing us to add our individual touches to what was a truly amazing day.

    Fautless...

    Our while experience with Fontwell was faultless from start to finish. From when we attended to view the venue, the menu tasting right through to finalising details just before our big day Melanie could not have been more helpful. Everything ran so smoothly and we were not bothered with the finer detail at all. Melanie and the team covered everything behind the scenes.

    On the day of our wedding we could not have been happier with the service we were provided with. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. All through the day people were checking to see if my new husband and I had everything we wanted and that we were happy with how the day was going.

    We could not have asked for example better wedding day, the staff were all so attentive and all the hard work Melanie did planning the day for us definitely paid off.

    All of our guests left the day saying how wonderful it was and one couple that attended are now planning to get married at Fontwell themselves.

    Finally, we would just like to say a massive thank you to Melanie and the team for everything you did for us!
