Unbelievably beautiful venue - terrible coordinations

We loved the venue it really is stunning but the wedding coordination is non existent. We had no contact for 2 years and then a meeting 6 weeks before the wedding which we felt was just a little too late into the process.

There were no personal touches, not even a congratulations note in our honeymoon suite. It just felt like the organisation behind the scenes was poor from the get go.

The team on the day were great and very attentative but our experience was a bit tainted

Massive thank you!

We just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who had a part in making our day so special.
From the very start of the wedding booking with yourself, you made us feel that we were in the very best hands. Every little detail was thought through and made the whole process enjoyable!
We have to also give Jose and his team a massive thank you. I don't know what I would have done without him on the day. He is a credit to the operations team. Plus he made our cheese table absolutely perfect!

Great time on the day!

Thank you so much for your kindest help.

We all had a really great time on the day and many guests are in love with the hospitality of the team and still can’t get over how beautiful Great Fosters is.

The day was unreal!

The day was “unreal”, at least that’s the best fitting word I’ve been able to find when describing it to those that weren’t able to be part of it. Michelle, myself and everyone who attended had nothing but great things to say about the day and what a setting GF was, we’re so happy that we chose to have it with you. I’m sure we’ll be back for Tea.

Huge thank you

David and I would like to say a HUGE thank you to yourself and all the team who helped make our day extra special and smooth. We had such a wonderful time. Thank you for our lovely card and drink in our room. Was so nice to walk into the room and see that.
Sorry I never got a chance to say goodbye the next day. Hope you liked your plant.
Can you tell me the name of that lovely man who was with you in the morning when I came downstairs. He helped me get into my car? He was helping a lot during the evening as well. I would like to send a thank you card :)

Amazing day but disappointing service before

We had our wedding and reception at Great Fosters and the day was absolutely perfect but the communication in the lead up was disappointing. We had to change co-coordinators as our was not able to meet us and had not contacted us to arrange sooner. We felt the service was very un-personal and at times unhelpful.
However, on the day Jose was the manager on duty and was absolutely fantastic.

Beautiful Venue, rude staff who are not helpful

The venue is stunning you can not fault it!

My Partner and I were spending £36k on our wedding but according to the wedding planners at Great Fosters that is not their average budget.

The wedding co-ordinator I was given was shocking, so bad I ended up requesting a new one. She miss quoted the price of the day which we agreed to and paid our deposit and signed contracts based on, only to be told at a later stage this was wrong and we would need to pay more. I was also told that the wedding room the bride and groom are given the night of the wedding could be upgraded (you would only need to pay the additional costs from room x to room y) however this isn't the case. If you cant see the room they were giving you to one of your guests (its too noisy a room to rent out to anyone outside of the wedding party I was told) you have to pay the full fee for the other room.

In the end we cancelled our wedding here as we couldn't believe how awful the staff were.

Whilst it is beautiful, it is also very expensive when you add the packages together and the staff are appealing.

Thank you!!

Nick and I would both like to say how grateful we are for Giulia's assistance and help throughout our wedding planning process. We would also like to thank the reservations team, Jose, Danesh and everyone that helped us. We would certainly like to spend an anniversary at GF in the near future.

The buffet was absolutely fantastic and bounteous indeed. The food and drinks all round were enjoyed by our guests too.

We highly recommend GF and we were delighted that you were able to accommodate our requests. We look forward to staying at your hotel in the near future.

Warm regards from us both.

Thank You!

We just wanted to say THANK YOU to you and Jose especially for making our day the best it could be. The rooms were beautiful and the Barn took my breath away.

Thank you for all your patience and support! And Jose was fantastic on the day, he made us feel relaxed and our guests were so happy.

Great Fosters is such a beautiful venue with fantastic staff to match.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts from me and Dan, our friends and family. I'm sure our next engaged friends will be getting married at Great Fosters!

All of the suppliers were fabulous especially Nicola with the flowers, Party Lights and of course, Damian the DJ from Firebird.

All the best for the future !!

Our Wedding Day

We would like to thank very much Giulia and Jose for organising such an amazing day for us and please also pass on our thanks to the wonderful staff you had working on our day. We had an absolutely amazing wedding and also had so many positive comments about the venue, the food and the staff.

We most certainly be coming back to celebrate as often as we can to Great Fosters as it will always hold a very special place in our hearts.

Many thanks.
