Great Fosters is a wonderful example of Elizabethan architecture.  Set amongst 50 acres of stunning formal gardens, the hotel makes the perfect venue for a wedding ceremony and reception.

Tempting menus are combined with vintage wines to ensure that your wedding breakfast is a gourmet experience, while the hotel’s gardens – with a Japanese bridge, lake, fountain and Saxon moat – provide an idyllic backdrop for photographs. Following the celebrations, why not stay overnight in one of our 41 luxurious suites or rooms. Special room rates are available for wedding guests too. Our professional and experienced wedding team will be delighted to advise and assist in planning and organising an unforgettable day.

Thank You!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Glenister, on 03 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jun 2017

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. Sara

The wedding was amazing,
Venue Service

By Sarah & James Bower, on 05 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 23 Jun 2017

The wedding was amazing, surpassed all our expectations, the Barn and Orangery looked incredible and better than we hoped. We knew we would have Jose on the day, but did not realise how hands on he would be from the moment we arrived and how attentive yet discreet in his support, and organising the rest of the staff. All our guests were so impressed with the venue, food and particularly the service, which was excellent throughout the entire day. Clearly, it was also very easy for all our suppliers to work with you on the day; the florist, Firebird, band etc. everything was taken care of - we didn't have to get involved with anything.

Thank you

Our dream Wedding!
Venue Service

By Ellie, on 04 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2017

What can I say about our Wedding Day at Great Fosters in early was perfect! From our initial viewing over a year and a half ago, to breakfast the morning after, we really could not have asked for more from a venue. Our wedding coordinator Giulia was such a star. She was on hand to answer emails and phone calls as we finalised our menu and discussed drinks and canapes in the lead up to our day. You were amazing! Thank you Giulia! We stayed over at the hotel the night before and were able to check the venue as it was being set up and met Jose the wedding day manager. Our entire day ran so smoothly and all the little details of our day were perfect, this was entirely down to how Jose managed his team and ensured that everyone was in the right place at the right time. We really had the most incredible day and can not thank all the staff enough. Several of our guests commented on how the food was the best they have ever had at a wedding, one of the reasons we chose Great Fosters in the beginning. What a joy it will be to return somewhere like this for our 1st anniversary!

Rebecca and Tonys Wedding

We would like to say a massive Thank You to Great Fosters for making our wedding day so special, they were so approachable and accommodating to making our day absolutely perfect. Everyone at the Hotel made so much effort to making everything run so smoothly on the day. Such a beautiful place, the surroundings are absolutely amazing and the food was outstanding, all my guests complimented on how the food was delicious. Cant thank Great Fosters enough, they put on such a perfect day for us.

Incredible wedding
Venue Service

By Katie Emma Bennett, on 08 Jun 2016

We had our wedding at Great Fosters on Sunday 29th May 2016 and every element of our day was perfect. The team liaised excellently with all our suppliers and both rooms were fully prepared and ready for guests on time. On the day our banqueting manager was Jose & he was phenomenal. He ensured the day ran like clockwork and took all the stress away from me. Our wedding had to start late due to a serious accident on the M25 preventing a large proportion of our guests to be late but he dealt with this seamlessly, pushing back dinner and the evening food without causing any issues at all. Although GF is expensive, the flat rate hire charge is on the high side compared to other venues the services is outstanding and the quality of the food was exceptional. Serving 160 hot medium filet steaks is no easy feat! I have been here on numerous occasions to dine / stay in the hotel and although it is expensive, it's an experience and it is worth it. Our guests have not stopped remarking about how good the food was & how spectacular the grounds were. We had a lovely sunny day & we were able to use the terrace & grounds to take some beautiful photos. There were a few altercations with the lead up to the wedding but these were dealt with by the wedding planners. Unfortunately I dealt with 3 different planners in the lead up (I personally like continuity and would have liked just 1 but due to staff leaving / illness it was out of our control) but all were very nice and all requests were dealt with. I would not hesitate to recommend GF as a wedding venue and will personally be returning ASAP.

November Wedding at Great Fosters
Venue Service

By Nathalie Fox, on 30 Nov 2015

We had the most perfect wedding at Great Fosters on the 28th November. The whole process leading up to the big day was perfectly coordinator by Nina and all the staff that helped out on the day were absolutely wonderful and so happy to help with whatever our needs. The day itself ran so smoothly and everyone was commenting on such a great atmosphere throughout the day. Everything was thoughtfully organised, even after the wedding when we had breakfast with all our guests who stayed over with a lovely buffet breakfast altogether the morning after. I cannot say a bad word and wish we could do it all over again!! Thank you Great Fosters.
