Thank you for everything you contributed toward our wedding day. You were so supportive but also a calm and knowledgeable presence in the run up to our wedding. Hestercombe was the perfect venue and with your expertise, we feel we pulled off a wedding that we and our guests will never forget.
We could not have asked for a more perfect day.

So many of our guests commented on the beautiful setting, good food and helpful staff. Victoria and Peter, December 2016
Professional with excellent service and smiles

A big thank you to everyone at Hestercombe who made a perfect day for Samuel and Lai Chi to remember.
Although it was a chilly start, we were soon warmed by the greetings from the staff when we arrived at the venue.
They were professional and gave an excellent service with plenty of smiles, helping to make the day run like clockwork.
Many praises have been made on the quality of food by guests, which catered for all dietary needs.
The photographer was able to capture the day from the beautiful settings, especially the staircase in the main house dressed in its winter glory, which was perfect for memorable photos of the couple, family and friends to take home with them to New Zealand.
Thank you for making our day so wonderful

Despite the weather we had an amazing day and that was largely down to you taking such good care of us. The service and food was above and beyond – our guests commented so too. Hestercombe is such a special place for us and we look forward to visiting again in the future.
We really had the most beautiful time

Thank you to the whole team who looked after us. It was a wonderful time and the fact that we were able to enjoy it so much was thanks to the great attention to detail and the great staff who made visitors feel they were enjoying the afternoon as well.
The food was fabulous and one of the ‘vegetarian and allergy’ guests commented it was the best meal she had had at a venue when there is usually a restricted choice. I loved the chef carving, the wide choice of side dishes and the fact that the hot food was actually hot. Thank you again.
A beautiful venue. A warm and personal experience
By Shan Morgan, on 06 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 09 Jul 2016
A 5 star venue and service. Our ceremony was held in the stunning Orangery - a really charming wedding venue, perfectly framed by the beautiful gardens. It felt a very personal rather than commercial event. The choice of food and wine was excellent - high quality, upmarket gastro-pub style. Service was warm, friendly and faultless throughout, the whole event masterminded by the wonderful Julie who was always on top of everything but never bossy - a real skill! Even our florist and musicians commented on the warm reception they got from the Hestercombe team.
I wish I could do it all over again. The team we w
By Rebecca Smith, on 02 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2016
As soon as we visited Hestercombe Gardens on a chilly January day we knew that it was where we wanted to get married. We were aiming for a really relaxed but fun summer wedding. From day 1 Julie made us feel at ease, she explained the different types of wedding they could provide as well as clearly highlighting costs and options, nothing was hidden or brushed over. My husband and I certainly enjoy a party - I cringed as my hubby to be cracked a joke about the best man falling in the pond (although I knew this was highly likely!) but instead of the ‘stiff upper lip’ response I expected from a wedding venue we were met with laughter and the assurance that he wouldn’t be the first to fall in and almost certainly wouldn’t be the last! We then heard about all the slightly ‘adventurous’ behaviours that had taken place there during other weddings and I knew right then that this was where we were going to feel comfortable. After that is was all so simple, Julie helped us to plan the additional elements of our wedding and we had a clear time line of what would need to happen and when. As I mentioned above, many times Julie had to put my mind at ease and reassure me that all was in hand and it always was.
On the day I didn’t have to worry about a thing (except my lippy staying in place). The teams worked in the background and how on earth they managed to work around us with no one noticing, I’ll never know. The day its self was faultless, the canapes and food were lovely and the atmosphere was relaxed.
Whatever it is Hestercombe are doing, please, keep doing it!
We are so glad we chose Hestercombe.

Julie, your professionalism and eye for detail shined throughout the day. Thanks also to the Chef for the beautifully presented and very tasty food. Thank you once again for making Victoria and Kieran’s wedding day the special day it was.
Beautiful setting, friendly staff, quality food
By Janice Evans, on 19 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Apr 2016
Professionalism and an eye for detail shined throughout the day. Compliments to the chef and kitchen staff for the beautifully presented and very tasty food that they had prepared for the Wedding Breakfast, and to the Waiting and Bar staff. The Head Waiter/Hall Manager was especially polite and courteous, and very helpful. Lot's of guests remarked on the beautiful setting-gardens and buildings, friendliness of staff, quality of the food and the ceremony itself. I would not hesitate to recommend Hestercombe Gardens as a venue to anyone.
