Autumn wedding at Highgate House
Venue Service

By Natalee and Dominic Marcano, on 03 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2018

We fell in love with Highgate House as soon as we arrived. Upon looking at the rooms, we quickly decided that we wanted to get married in the Baronial Hall and get planning straight away! Siobhan Shand-Liddle is amazing - helping us refine all of our thoughts and ideas into manageable chunks to make sure our wedding day was just as we had hoped and planned! The food is delicious (so many compliments) and the grounds offer plenty of different locations for you and your guests to relax and explore. Something for everyone to enjoy your special day - it’s perfect. The team at Highgate House are incredibly helpful and friendly, blending in to make your wedding run smoothly with a family feel. You won’t be disappointed... it’s beautiful and we’re so glad we chose Highgate for our special day!!

Dear Siobhan, Thankyou so much for all your help with Sharon and I’s wedding last Saturday. The whole day and evening were perfect, and will live in our memories for a long time. The venue at Highgate House is beautiful, but actually it’s the people that make that special day, special. Of course such a brilliant day didn’t happen by accident, and the time and attention to detail we received from you, from day one was first class, and gave us confidence we were in safe hands. I always thought Sharon was super organised, but I think she found a kindred spirit in you ! We have had numerous compliments, and a number have said it’s the best wedding they’ve been too. Many also said how good the food was, so compliments to the chef and kitchen staff, often the unsung heros ! In particular please thank Raj who has such a great manner, and was so attentive, and Becky who was lovely and worked so hard. Please also pass on our thanks to the whole team, and feel free to pass on this message to your manager. Kind regards David & Sharon

My husband and I cannot thank the staff at Highgate House enough for all of their hard work and attentiveness. In particular Siobhan the wedding planner, coordinator and wonder woman! She made the day stress free and exactly how we wanted it. It is a beautiful setting inside and out. The food was amazing, our photographer said it was the best food he has had at a wedding and I think that says a lot! We can't thank you enough and we can't wait to go back and stay there again.

Highgate House is an amazing wedding venue. I got married there on 28th July this year and had the most perfect day. The staff are so professional, and nothing is too much trouble. The wedding planner Siobhan put me & my partner at ease throughout. I couldn't recommend the venue enough!

Not being one to ever write a review about anything, simply due to not having time or not receiving anything "review" worthy. I felt compelled to write this instantly. We experienced our wedding at Highgate this weekend, and both myself, our families and our guests commented on how beautiful this venue was. Venue was simply perfect, but nothing compared to the staff. The service we received from everyone was simply amazing. Food, staff, effort and attitude.....absolutely fantastic! Siobhan the wedding planner and her team, quite simply were great! I cannot stress enough at how faultless they have been. So thank you. Anyone looking for a wedding venue, this place is a diamond!

John and I would like to say a very big thank you to all those involved in the organisation and delivery of our wedding. We had an amazing day. Your assistance and support along the way was most welcome and we much appreciated the good natured way that you went about the wedding planning process. Everthing was designed to make our day special, and it was......Thank you very much. The wedding breakfast was delicious, beautifully cooked and presented. We received a huge amount of positive feedback from our guests. Well done to the chefs and catering team. All of the wait and bar staff were amazing on the day. The service was professional, timely and efficient. I regret I didn’t make note of individual names, however everyone took great care of us and our guests. In conclusion we would like to say that the warm welcome and genuine interest and care extended by the hotel staff was a large part of what drew us to Highgate House in the first instance. That the hotel had some really beautiful rooms on show was of course a bonus! We shall definitely return to celebrate.

We initially had our consultation meetings with Lauren who gave us so many options about making the whole day truly special, and caused the pair of us no stress whatsoever. Lauren left Highgate House and handed over to Tamara, the communication between Lauren, Tamara and ourselves was top class. And clearly the communication between Lauren and Tamara as part of the handover process was exceptional, no details were missed. Our Wedding day was Wednesday 31/05/2017 and we have to say it ran like clockwork from our arrival. Huge thanks to Alison and Sue who made everything go without a hitch on our wedding day. Extremely attentive and just wanting us to have a truly unforgettable day. The drinks reception on the lawn was perfect and tailored to our requests. The canapes went down a storm. The wedding breakfast was held in the Baronial Hall, and WOW, what an absolutely stunning venue. The room looked amazing and we have had so many amazing comments from our guests about how beautiful everything looked. The wedding breakfast was so tasty, and very good portion sizes, again we have had superb comments from our guests about the variety and quality of the food. You hear so many people say that their wedding was perfect, and our wedding was perfect for us. Every single aspect was brilliant from the first meeting until the breakfast the day after. We cannot say thank you enough to Tamara, Alison, Sue, and all the serving staff, and bar staff on the day. The team at Highgate are the cream of the crop and made our day fun, special and a day we will never ever forget. Review emailed from Zoey and Phil Wane. Thank you from Zoey, Phil and Henry (The Wanes).

Wow! Me & my partner got married here on the 29th May 2017. It was a fantastic day. The staff were incredible, the venue is outstanding and the food was amazing. We booked this venue in October on a late availability package deal. From booking the venue to the day itself, the wedding coordinator, Tamara was superb. She gave us ideas of things to consider that we had not even thought of. We had a meal the night before the wedding with some of the wedding party that stayed the night before. We were given a private dining room which was lovely. The running of the wedding day itself was faultless. We had our ceremony and wedding breakfast in the baronial hall. A magnificent room in the house. The staff were faultless and efficient in turning the room around. The toastmaster we had for the day - Alison was great and kept everything running smoothly. The venue hosts corporate functions too and has a beautiful restaurant. It also has a swimming pool, gym and sauna, which my husband made use of the morning of our wedding. If you are thinking of having your wedding or any event here then do it! It's a grand venue and all our guests were very impressed. Review received from Sally and Dan.

By Sarah & Jon, on 10 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2016

After visiting Highgate House for the first time, we instantly knew it was the place where we wanted to get married. We were shown round by Lauren, the wedding planner and felt incredibly welcomed by her. She exuded friendliness whilst maintaining a high degree of professionalism. The venue itself is quite simply charming with a mix of old and new blended impeccably together, from the stunning Baronial Hall to the modern Coote Suite. We used both of these rooms, one for the daytime ceremony and then the other for the evening.Lauren was superb throughout the whole planning process. Nothing was ever too much trouble and she answered my endless questions from start to finish, solving any issues that arose. Our actual wedding day was the stuff dreams are made of. Everything went so smoothly thanks to all the wonderful staff from those behind the bar, to the receptionist, the waitresses, toastmaster and chefs. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. We were invited to a complimentary tasting meal during the planning process to choose our menu which also contributed wonderfully to the overall experience. The staff set up the rooms perfectly and the they looked stunning. The evening buffet was equally delicious and many guests commented on the quality of the food served during the day. As Highgate only allow one wedding per day you have the full use of the venue including a lovely outside area for a drinks reception. I cannot praise the venue and staff highly enough. We had an amazing day and our memories will live on forever.
