Perfect, Kind and Professional

The venue is stunning and was the perfect setting for our winter wedding (so much natural light even in January). Jocie Golbourn was our assigned wedding planning specialist and she is so kind, sweet, patient and professional. All our guests loved the venue but many actually commented on how flawless and seamless the day was organised and rooms decorated and prepared from each section of the wedding and we only have Jocie and venue staff to thank for their meticulous planning and preparations. The food and drinks were delicious. Couldn’t recommend this venue enough- we actually booked the venue on a whim and were SO happy when we visited for an open day. There’s no false advertisements- it’s stunning.

Dream wedding was everything we wanted

Everything, from start to finish, was exactly what we wanted and more. The preparation was helped by our wonderful personal manager, Tara, and accommodated each and every one of our requests and needs. The venue is gorgeous, food delicious, and atmosphere felt special. Our friends and family all told us that this was such a spectacular wedding for them that it was the best they've ever been to. We felt completely taken care of, kept us calm and happy throughout the day, and kept all of our suppliers in place and to standard. It felt glamourous and unique. We wish we could relive the day over and over. It really was our dream wedding.

The most beautiful day of our lives

Having just got married at Gosfield Hall I can honestly say it was the most beautiful venue and the most perfect day. The staff were so attentive and professional. The food was outstanding and the drinks and cocktails were fabulous. They couldn’t do enough to make sure our day was everything we’d dreamt of. I have to say a special thanks to Ellie - one of the wedding coordinators on site - she went above and beyond to help us plan our day and was there from the very moment I woke up delivering fresh pastries for breakfast to the moment she made me a cup of tea to go to bed with. I can’t thank you enough Ellie, you are an absolute credit to Gosfield Hall.

A seamless fairytale!

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for the most incredible day yesterday. We both had the fairytale wedding that we have always dreamed of and our guests also had an amazing time. We have already received so many compliments telling us how it was the best wedding they've ever been to or how the food was outstanding. We had the most incredible day and we are truly so grateful to you and your team for that.

Our experience with Gosfield Hall was seamless from start to finish. Thank you for kickstarting our marriage with the most perfect wedding.

Wedding venue

The venue is spectacular and was perfect for our day. We wanted somewhere with lots of space and having each element of our wedding in a different setting was what really attracted us here. The bedrooms rooms are amazing and the facilities are second to none.
Jocie was our wedding planner and we really don’t know how the day would have run without her. Everything was seamless and it really took the pressure away from us allowing us to enjoy our day.
The support offered right up to your big day is fantastic and they really can not do enough for you.

Would 100% recommend this beautiful venue and the excellent staff, request Jocie!

Magical Winter Wedding

We had the most perfect winter wedding at Gosfield. Everything from the surroundings, staff and food and drink were simply perfect. Jess our wedding manager was absolutely brilliant and was there from start to finish, ensuring everything went to plan. The accommodation was fab including the ladies chambers and Marquis the night before.
We couldn’t have asked for more and just wish we could do it all again.
We would highly recommend booking your wedding at Gosfield if you want a truly magical, stress free day.

Best wedding day ever!!

Gosfield Hall was the first and last wedding venue that we looked at on our wedding planning journey. From the moment we arrived for our viewing we knew that it was the one! All of the staff are so friendly and go above and beyond to accommodate you. However a massive shoutout needs to go our dedicated wedding planner Jocie. From our first conversation Jocie understood our vision and helped us to achieve our dream wedding. All the way up until the big day she assisted us with any queries or last minute changes we needed to make. On the day she was like our fairy godmother ensuring that the day went smoothly and that any last minute issues such as a missing buttonhole were resolved before we even had time to stress about it! Thank you so much to the team at Gosfield Hall for making our wedding day so special. We cannot wait to return for many years to come to reminisce and celebrate our anniversaries! 😁

Wow we had the most amazing wedding day here in May this year, Tara was our wedding manager and she made sure everything was just perfect, all the attention to detail in the build up, making both my husband and I feel special and looked after, and our guests were totally blown away by the hospitality on the day, food was absolutely amazing and we have had guests say they have never had such nice food at a wedding before, Tara and the team really mad all our dreams for our big day a reality and we can thank them enough. Would highly recommend this venue.

Wonderful!

Jess and her team were so helpful in the lead up to the wedding, going above and beyond to create a memorable day -accommodating many last min changes! The day ran smoothly with everything happening around us which meant we could soak it all in and trust the schedule and guests were in safe hands. Would recommend. Perfect day x

Best wedding venue ever

My husband and I had our wedding here just over a month ago and we are so glad we chose to have it in Gosfield Hall. Not only is the place stunning but the overall process from communication with staff to arranging details on the day has been so smooth and transparent. Special thanks to our on the day wedding coordinator Jocie and to all the staff who made our special day so memorable. They say planning a wedding is hard and it is but it becomes a breeze when you have the right people around you to support and enable your vision to come true.

Couldn't have asked for more!

Our wedding at Gosfield Hall in May 2022 was incredible. Everything we had hoped for and more. All of the staff on the day did an amazing job and our wedding manager Jocie was an absolute superstar. She really went above and beyond both leading up to our special day and on the day itself. She was always really quick to respond to us on any queries and was extremely patient with us. It was nice to be able to relax on the day and know all the details were being handled.

Poor management

This review is a tale of two halves which gives an overall experience we had for our wedding in September 2022.

The venue is stunning - that is not in question. The on-the-ground team were amazing and did all they could to make our day special. We had the best two days at Gosfield Hall and a very emotional and beautiful wedding.

Our wedding coordinator, Ellie, is a credit to Gosfield Hall - her attention to detail, support for us and our guests, humour, and care was exceptional. We hope Gosfield Hall / Country House Weddings recognise this. Others have been exceptional since we booked our wedding in the summer of 2019 (unfortunately, due to Covid, we had to rearrange dates twice), but they have since left the organisation.

However, whilst the on-the-ground team and Ellie were exceptional, the management of Gosfield Hall left a lot to be desired. Please be cautious if you are looking to book your wedding with them, and ensure you read the terms and conditions thoroughly before you pay any deposit. I recommend you sit and review it with one of their onsite teams to ensure absolute clarity. They will aim to use the terms and conditions against you, if not during the planning stage of your wedding, then post the wedding.

They tried to make us pay nearly £7,000 to move our wedding date from 2021 to 2022 but soon changed their mind once we outlined the legal advice we had been given.

They also, post the wedding, levied a charge for a missing umbrella and a room key (which, in the grand scheme of what we paid for the venue, is minuscule). We had no awareness of the provision of umbrellas and that there was no rain; therefore, no need to use an umbrella during our event seemed lost on the venue management. The room key (which we were aware of) had been returned the following week rather than on the day of check-out.

We recommend you walk the site with your wedding coordinator, asking them to point out what potentially 'missing items' you could be held liable for at the start of your stay.

Without a doubt, the most disappointing aspect of our engagement was the receipt of an email from the venue manager intended for the previous night's wedding party, where charges were levied due to what was claimed to be evidence of smoking in four rooms. The email went on to state the following:

"Unfortunately we are going to have to charge you as we were unable to use the rooms for Friday's wedding as the smell was so strong."

Initially, this was confusing as our wedding was on Friday, and all rooms were fully booked. Furthermore, the groom and best man got ready for the wedding ceremony in one of the rooms that could not be used, and there was no noticeable smell of cigarette smoke which would have been evident to us as non-smokers. We became aware that the venue management of Gosfield Hall is willing to knowingly make false statements to justify the levy charges to clients, so we were not surprised when we received our levies.

We escalated our concerns about their communication and charges to Country House Wedding Directors. Their initial response did not answer our queries, so we followed up and requested a more thorough response. Although these levies were subsequently refunded, and we were offered a complimentary meal and stay, which we declined, we are yet to receive a response to our second communication to them and have now waited three weeks for an answer. We do not believe this will be forthcoming.

So, in summary, beautiful venue with a fantastic on-the-ground team but poor management and leadership who will try to get more monies from you for incorrect, missing items or interpretations of their loosely worded terms and conditions, which means we are unable to recommend this venue.

Gorgeous Venue

I booked gosfield hall after an online viewing given the covid situation and was very happy with my choice after finally seeing it in person. It’s stunning. We had a year to plan the wedding and was told we would have a wedding manager contact us 3-4 months before the wedding. This all went to plan and we met Stella who we went through the planning process with. It seems there was a few miscommunications on their part regarding the accommodation the night before, as ‘exclusive use’ apparently does not mean the entire accommodation to them, so I undercharged my guests when offering them accommodation the night before. The venue was unwilling to give us what we had lost in this ‘misunderstanding’ which was incredibly disappointing when your on a strict budget.
My wedding manager then stopped replying to me and all of a sudden it was radio silence mere months before the big day. I finally decided to contact the venue directly and complain. They informed me that Stella no longer worked there and was due to tell all her clients but clearly did not. I was told I wouldn’t have a replacement for another month which was extremely frustrating so close to the day.

Then came Jocie, thank god for Jocie. Although it was frustrating having to go through everything again she was worth it. Jocie put my mind at rest and did everything she could to make up for Stella’s incompetency. On the day she was perfect, and everything went to plan and it was the most perfect day. The food was delicious and the staff were incredibly helpful.

I would suggest the venue find a solution to the fact The bridal party is unable to get in contact with the wedding manager on the day in the cottage given the lack of signal, perhaps a direct line but if not everything was perfect.

I would 100% recommend the venue and ask for Jocie as she was superb!
