Everything was absolutely flawless
Venue Service

By Ellie Martin Foster, on 18 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2018

The team were absolutely flawless. From the menu tasting, wedding planning meeting and even the day before; we felt so relaxed about everything. We knew that once we dropped everything off, all responsibility would be relinquished to the team and we completely trusted that they would set everything up as expected. When we walked into the Ballroom for the first time to see our tables set up, we both got quite emotional, it was so magical with the candelabras and the carefully positioned tables for our cake and picture table. It was so very special.

Quite simply the most magical day
Venue Service

By Richard and Anita, on 18 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2018

Our day was quite simply the most magical, spectacular and memorable day we could have ever dreamed of, never mind asked for, or even planned. Everything was outstanding – the venue, staff, food and organisation was just superb! Being allowed up to the main balcony of the House for Anita to throw her bouquet was an experience we’ll both remember for years to come. What a special treat.

Memories to cherish for a lifetime
Venue Service

By Mr Pope, Father of the Groom, on 02 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2018

As the father of the groom I would like to thank you and your wonderful team for an absolutely fantastic day. Your attention to detail was second to none. I’m struggling to put into words how impressive the day was. You’ve left me with some amazing memories for which I’ll cherish for the rest of my life. A massive thank you for everyone involved in a truly amazing day. Your staff are a real credit to you.

There are just no words to describe Goodwood
Venue Service

By Frankie and Sam, on 18 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Dec 2017

We loved every second of our wedding day at Goodwood House. The arrival in particular was truly spectacular, with the beautiful House against the bright blue sky as we came up the driveway. At the door, we were greeted by David [Head Butler] and Rhiannon [Wedding Planner], who both made us feel completely at home. There are no words to describe how wonderful Goodwood House is as a wedding venue

Sophisticated, elegant and memorable
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Jennings, on 16 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Apr 2017

Thanks to Goodwood, our wedding day was everything we wanted it to be: sophisticated, elegant and memorable. Right from that very first meeting the level of customer service was exceptional - we were warmly welcomed and made to feel like the only people getting married that year. On the day the staff were exceptional. David, Enda and the whole team were attentive, friendly and professional right from the moment our guests arrived until the very end of the day.

We had the best day ever
Venue Service

By Clare and Derren Jennings, on 18 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Apr 2017

Thank you so very much for making our day so special - right from the first time we visited until the last day. Everyone worked so hard to ensure our happiness and we could not have asked for more. The food was exceptional, just as we knew it would be. Enda [Butler] made my nephews' day by driving them back to the Hotel. It's clear everyone at Goodwood cares so much for other people.

It made us feel like royalty for the day.
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Griss, on 16 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2017

From the breathtaking setting and Estate grounds to the delicious food and exceptional service, the day was special in every possible way. We never had to remind the staff to do anything – each part of our wedding just magically ‘happened’ on time and the day flowed seamlessly from start to finish. We took advantage of the opportunity to have two tour guides on hand to undertake House tours, which our guests really appreciated as it gave them a fascinating insight into the history and heritage of Goodwood House. The Ballroom was our favourite room, offering a grand and unforgettable experience for the wedding breakfast. As a private Estate, it made it easy for Lucy to fulfil her dream of arriving by horse & carriage as she was taken from the nearby Goodwood Hotel to the unmistakable front of Goodwood House.

We could not have asked for anymore
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Doodson, on 18 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Aug 2016

Thank you for making our wedding day so amazing. We could not have asked for anything more. With such an amazing venue and food, everything ran so smoothly.

A Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Christian and Elise, Sept 2005, on 24 Jan 2006

We really couldn't have wished for a more perfect day. Goodwood House was truely magical - just what we had dreamed and hoped it would be. The staff were really fantastic and we have had nothing but absolute praise from all of our guests. We wish we could do everything all over again!

Fantastic setting, fantastic staff
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Wolfson, November 2005, on 24 Jan 2006

It is not an exaggeration to say that the event moved through the timetable so seamlessly from the arrival of the ushers to the departure of the last guests. One could only conclude that we were indeed in the hands of an extremely expert team. The chef produced a superb dinner, much remarked upon by our guests. We thank you most sincerely for providing us all with not only a wonderful setting for our celebrations but some very cherished memories that I am sure will endure for a very long time to come

Fantastic venue, fantastic service
Venue Service

By Angela Gordon Lennox, on 16 Sep 2004

We recently married at Goodwood House (August 2004) and had the most fantastic day ever! Not only is it a beautiful venue but the service is second to none. Every detail and every moment of your day is managed by Goodwood and we could not have wished for anything more perfect.

Venue Service

By Sally and Paul, on 28 Jan 2004

I cannot praise Goodwood enough ..... Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, leading up to and during the wedding. Our guests were awestruck - it was the most amazing day!
