Made our wedding day perfect!!

The venue is stunning and the whole wedding day was perfect! We did feel they were quite relaxed about everything coming up to the wedding which made us a bit anxious but in the end it turned out to be just our nerves. They clearly know what they are doing and have done it million times so throw yourselves into their hands and they will give you all you dream of! We used a lot of their decorations, they have a lot of stuff available, they know exactly what you talk about during planning and provide just that. The day itself couldn't have gone better, everything looked beautiful, they were around all the time to make sure everything is running like clock work, they listened to the tiniest things such as making sure we eat canapes before going for photos and ensured it happened. Our master of ceremonies did a lot of research into my Czech traditions and so was able to announce them all and explain their meaning, he was always on time and his voice and command was just perfect. Everyone else, from Adam to kitchen and bar staff couldn't do more for us. We had a beautiful weather day and so postponed few traditions to later, it was not a problem at all with anyone. Truly highly recommend, we couldn't have wished for more! And of course, the venue is absolutely stunning, everyone had such a nice time and we were so happy we chose it for our wedding day, the memories will be unforgettable!! Thank you, Grafton Manor team!!
(We're still waiting for official photos so just sharing some pictures friends took, hopefully it gives a good idea of how stunning it is there!)

The most incredible wedding

No words can express how grateful I am for all the staff at Grafton Manor, they are all truly amazing and have never experienced such kindness and thoughtfulness at a hotel/venue before even staying at 5* resorts around the world.

The grounds are beautifully kept with charm and character in every corner, a photographers dream!

Tim the chef served incredible food throughout the day and we received compliments from all our guests (even the picky eaters!)

Helen helped prepare me for the day and answered my silliest questions with a calm and professional manner making everything smoother.

Tyler and Adam are both so attentive and personable knowing exactly what we needed either the day before or on the day before we even knew! Small touches made a huge impact to both ourselves and our guests.

Scott helped keep the day moving and brought a great energy.

We have been to countless weddings over the years without being biased, this was the best! But don't take our word for it, our married guests also said the same!

If you are thinking of booking this place, go for it, you will not regret it! I could never thank the team enough.

Perfect location for a perfect day

From the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out we were treated like VIP’s. The whole team are really professional and worked quietly in the background making sure our day was perfect. The venue is stunning, the Garden Suite ideal for a large bridal party to get ready together and the food is fabulous. As well as beautiful grounds with a lake for stunning photographs we had our civil wedding, in what was the old Chapel, so we still got to walk down the aisle. The Marque was ideal for the wedding breakfast and reception.

Great for an Asian wedding but stay on top of them

I got married here in 2017 and fell in love with the grounds and the house immediately. It was an Asian wedding held over two days and the biggest selling point for us was that it was an exclusive hire and we could all stay comfortably on site. The bedrooms were to a good and comfortable standard. The bridal suite was generous and the children were safe to run to their hearts content within the grounds.

Unfortunately, all of the extra details that were promised (and paid for) were not delivered and couldn't be followed up on because John disappeared for the day (without telling me) but overall we had a wonderful wedding and I would still recommend it as a venue provided you write everything down and have a way to keep them accountable. I understand the venue is no longer under the same management so that would also be worth noting.

What a place

Grafton is the most beautiful venue!
The professionalism and flexibility of Adam, Katie and Scott made the wedding planning so easy - they’re knowledgeable, communicative, helpful and are an absolute credit to Grafton.

I am so so pleased we made the decision to book and will be coming back as regular visitors because it’s such a magical place.

Our guests have been commenting on how wonderful it is - especially on the ceremony hall (it has all the beauty I was looking for but without the religious element and therefore we had the civil ceremony in the most stunning space).

Also - Something I found really useful when planning the wedding is that I found by booking a venue with such beauty from the building to the grounds, getting loads of decor becomes less important as a place like this barely needs dressing!

Thank you for everything.

The Perfect Venue!

A massive thank you to Grafton Manor for making our big day so special!
From our first visit and throughout the whole journey of planning our wedding, the team at Grafton Manor were absolutely amazing. Especially, Katie and Adam. Katie was always on hand to answer any questions we had straight away! Adams guidance and experience is unquestionable, and was such a huge help on the day itself.
Our guests had an amazing time and were very complimentary about the food.
Couldn't of have asked for a better day, and we got some great pictures to remember the day :)

A definite must!

The ability to have the service and reception in one place was great. The venue was fab with rooms to stay too. The food was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The staff were only too happy to help. All our guests, including my family from Austria, were wowed by the venue. We have no hesitation in recommending this venue. It is fab!

beautiful

myself and hubby got married at grafton manor, december 2010 in the thick sparkling snow which looks amazing in the photos :) Everything was perfect on our day so would like to thank the staff. The food was amazing. The only things I can honestly say which upset our day was the marquee was blumming freezing when I arrived so told staff to make sure they put the heating on straight away which I dont think they did as we still had guests sat in coats which I felt bad about also we had a rude member of staff talk rudely to a couple of our guests! Also because of the weather alot of guests weren't able to make it to the wedding, so the amount of food which must of been left untouched must of been alot and there was no discount not even "do you wish for the food that you have bought to be taken home with you". Apart from this, the venue was picture perfect and we had the day of our lives!

A Special Day, So Wonderful

Grafton Manor is truly the most perfect place for a wedding, and the gardens are really beautiful.

From the first moment we saw Grafton, we knew we couldn't possibly consider having our wedding reception anywhere else.

The staff were extremely efficient and helpful and the meal was delicious,as was the barbeque on the evening.
