The most beautiful day of our lives
A seamless fairytale!
Our experience with Gosfield Hall was seamless from start to finish. Thank you for kickstarting our marriage with the most perfect wedding.
Dream wedding was everything we wanted
Best wedding venue ever
Wedding of our dreams!
Absolutely amazing day!
Best wedding day ever!!
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!
Couldn't have asked for more!
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!
Magical Winter Wedding
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.
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.
A magical experience
This is all because of you! Getting to know me you probably noticed that I had very high expectations on everyone involved in the wedding. But you are so extremely good at what you do that you easily exceeded them. You not only took over the entire Organisation but also found time to comfort and calm us before the start.
Thank you Ellie, for making this the happiest day of our life. I will forever be grateful to you
