Dear Giulia, Jose & the Great Fosters team,
What can we say...you helped to make our day one of the BEST days of our lives!
From start to finish no request was too much.
Giulia - Every step of the way we felt guided and supported in our decisions and we could not have asked for more.
Jose - You were marvelous! You made sure everything was in the right place at the right time. The whole day went seamlessly.
We can not thank you enough for helping our dream day come true.
Love Ed & Ellie x
Our dream Wedding!

What can I say about our Wedding Day at Great Fosters in early April.....it 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.

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
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.

Great Fosters Great venue

We have performed at this venue ... remains in our selective list of top venues to perform at. A hugely versatile venue, nice facilities, great access and very nice ambience
Cottage Garden worth a visit!

What wonderful day we had when we married at Great Fosters! The day and evening was perfect and lived up to all of our expectations. The staff were wonderful, could not have done enough, and totally put us at our ease. We felt at all times we were in very safe hands.
Many of our guests commented on what fine service we all received and what a wonderful venue Great Fosters is.
We had a relaxed informal dinner in the restaurant the evening before with close friends which was a lovely was to ease into the big day.
We will certainly be spending every anniversary there.

We can't thank Great Fosters enough for all their input and effort to help make our wedding such a perfect day.
Everything was professionally managed by the Great Fosters team (in particular Keenan) and the attention to detail on the day helped everyone to have a great time. So many people complimented the venue and all the satff, and we couldn't have been happier with how things went and the organisation.
We'll never forget our special day; it was magical.

I can honestly say that from the beginning Great Fosters have ensured that Anne & Ninas plans came to fruition. As the Father of the Bride my imput in the plannin and delivery was minimal, but as I watched from the sidelines my confidence grew and I knew Great Fosters would deliver.
I can honestly say that my expectations were exceeded; they work as a team from top to bottom. The management team were excellent as were the porters and the waiting and reception staff. As an observation when I had a request the answer was always 'Yes'! and this alone leads to a very positive experience.
I stay in many hotels and feel that Great Fosters really has a family feel which sets it apart from the others.
By Andrew, on 05 Dec 2013
To say that Great Fosters and all the staff there exceeded our greatest expectations would actually be an understatement.
When looking at venues back in February this year, we travelled far and wide including some reputable places, before finally arriving at Great Fosters. I knew when we drove away with tears of joy rolling down my then fiances face that we could not hold our wedding reception anywhere other than in your stunning building and grounds.
From that very first trip to our latest we have been blown away by how exceptionally professional, courteous and helpful all your staff have been. Whether helping organise our big day, manning reception, pouring drinks behind the bar or simply passing in the corridor all your staff have been incredible.
I travel regularly on business around the UK and have never had the quality of service, in any establishment, that all your staff convery and they should be commended for it!
Great Fosters and the team assisted in making our wedding day the most magical and memorable occasion and for that we are eternally grateful. We cannot wait to return on a regular basis in the future.
