The day could not have gone better
Venue Service

By Lita and Richard Saunders, on 09 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Nov 2017

We are writing to you about our daughter's wedding reception held at The Old Palace on Saturday, 4th November - Megan and Paul Taylor. We were extremely pleased with the service provided by you and your team, both leading up to the event and on the day itself. Our daughter developed a good relationship with Perri, who was very helpful and efficient at all stages of the planning and preparation. On the day itself, we were very pleased to have Chris, who seemed to know exactly what to do at every stage of the proceedings. His calmness at all times was very reassuring to us all. The staff who were on duty were all very friendly and efficient and they helped the day to go with a swing. We felt that the day couldn't have gone better and we want to convey to all your staff our thanks for everything they did.

We loved it!

Planning the day was easy
Venue Service

We had a beautiful winter wedding at Hatfield House in December 2016. Our champagne reception and evening were held in the Old Palace, which hosted 180 guests very comfortably. The Old Palace is a striking room, and many guests commented on the romantic and magical feeling the venue radiates. The room was an absolute delight. Planning the day was easy, as the events coordinators are attentive and very helpful and efficient when dealing with external suppliers.

Thank you Hatfield House

I had always wanted to get married at Hatfield House, so we made it happen. It was the most perfect day from start to finish. All the ladies in the Hospitality office were so helpful on the run up to the wedding, always quick to answer my questions. Chris was brilliant on our big day, he kept me and all my bridesmaids calm and talked us through everything we needed to know. The venue is stunning, all our guests complimented it throughout the day. Overall, it was simply perfect! Wish we could do it all again. Big thank you to everyone at Hatfield House!

Getting married at Hatfield House was the best decision we made. From the very moment we saw the Old Palace, the Riding School and the grounds of Hatfield House we were charmed. To add to the sensational surroundings of the property we worked with the most professional, efficient and exceptionally helpful team! They were approachable and went above and beyond to help us create the most magical day. If you've been charmed by Hatfield House don't hesitate in booking your event there, you won't be disappointed.

Thoroughly recommend Hatfield House
Venue Service

By Louise Elliot, on 28 Feb 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Sep 2016

Our wedding at The Old Palace, Hatfield House, was just the greatest day ever. The venue looked incredible with all the flowers and lighting, and we had so many comments from guests about how gorgeous the venue was. On the day, the organisation was so smooth. Chris and Dan were the operation managers, and everything ran without a hitch, with excellent service from all the staff present. Looking back I wouldn’t change a single thing about the day (except maybe we would have liked a bit more sunshine) and thoroughly recommend Hatfield House as a wedding venue.

Wow words cant describe how blessed we were to have our wedding reception at the beautiful Hatfield House Riding School. We got married here on Friday 9th September 2016, and was truly a beautiful day. The wedding planner Jayne was so helpful and flexible, we could decorate the venue however we wanted to so we could have our perfect theme. The staff were always around if you needed them for any help or questions that you had. Honestly couldnt recommend this beautiful setting for your perfect wedding. Wish we could do it all over again. Thak you everyone again at Hatfield House!

"Thank you so much for all the help leading up to the wedding and on the day. Chris and the whole of the team at Hatfield House were fantastic and really made the difference. Everything was organised perfectly and we didn’t have to worry about anything so we could properly enjoy ourselves. We are still getting feedback from our guests months later and everyone loved the venue.”

Amazing venue
Venue Service

By Monica and Chris, on 24 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Aug 2016

Hatfield House proved to be every bit the amazing venue we had hoped for. The atmosphere, buildings, history and grounds speak for themselves and it had instant wow factor with our guests. We enjoyed every minute of the day, and the hospitality team were so professional and discreet that many of our friends thought they were wedding guests. The food was amazing and the chef’s attention to detail excellent. A very special place and a very special day.

Magnificent Hall
Venue Service

By Tony Calthorpe, on 03 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2016

We had a fantastic wedding party in the Old Palace on a glorious August evening. Everyone was really impressed by the magnificent hall and wonderful private gardens. We simply added tall flowers to the ancient surroundings. The catering, service quality and event management all exceeded our expectations and received consistently high praise from our guests.

The food was amazing
Venue Service

By Sophie, on 21 Feb 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2016

Hatfield House Hospitality did an incredible job of helping us plan our wedding and making sure that everything went smoothly on day. Perri and the rest of the team were brilliant at responding to all our queries (however small) in the run-up to the big day, and on the day itself Chris and Dan made sure everything ran like clockwork. The food was amazing - everyone commented on how lovely it was - and all the staff were incredibly attentive. I would wholeheartedly recommend Hatfield House as a wedding venue. The Old Palace is stunningly beautiful and the entire team helped make our wedding day very special indeed.
