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.

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.

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.

A Perfect Day

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!

Venue Service

By Vixen, on 05 Sep 2003

I simply can't fault anything. The scenery is breathtaking, looking ove the South Downs. The house itself is effectively yours for the day - you get to use about 8 state rooms, and eat dinner surrounded by furniture and paintings that most of us canonly ever dream about. The food was simply the best I've ever had at a mass catering event - 160 steaks ooked to perfection. All of the staff bent over backwards to make the day run seamlessly. I simply can't sing their praises highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble. On the pricey side, but if you want a day with the wow factor, you won't beat Goodwood House.
