Good afternoon Emily,
Toby and I felt that everything went very smoothly last Thursday - seamless. The little surprises for us were totally unexpected. We enjoyed the champagne in our room reflecting over the day and opening our cards.
We would especially like to thank Lindsay and her team as well as Malcolm. Without them we are sure it would not have been as smooth as it was. We’d like to thank you and Zoe too for all the preparation as without this it would not have been possible.
We are very pleased that we chose Lainston House for our wedding: beautiful surroundings and impeccable service. Now we’re looking forward to seeing the photos.
Lisa and Toby

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and everyone at Lainston for making it such a fantastic day. We can tell that everyone works so hard to make it run so smoothly, and it was noticed by all! We had so many guests comment on how attentive everyone was, and not to mention how great the venue and food was!
Thank you so much for making it so easy and stress free, it made the day so much more relaxing knowing that we could trust that you all would be so fantastic.
We can't thank you enough!

Such a special day...
By Rebecca and Henderson, on 29 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Mar 2017
Henderson and I want to thank you so much for the work you did to help us plan our wedding. The day on Saturday was absolutely perfect, a sentiment echoed by all our guests. The weather of course was perfect, but so was the ceremony and the lunch as well as our two night stay. I did not manage to thank the two people who did so much on the day, organising the lunch and serving our food. With all our guests leaving when they did, by the time I got back to the Hampshire room they had gone. So I hope you will please pass on our enormous thanks for everything they did. Nothing was too much trouble and they showed great patience and flexibility.
Thanks again for your help. You made our special day so enjoyable.

The Most Amazing Wedding Day
By Nina and Michael Wilkins., on 06 May 2015
From our first visit to Lainston back in May 2014 we knew we wanted to get married there, it felt like a very special place and your team proved that to be the case. We are so grateful for all their hard work to make our big day so fantastic. The wedding breakfast was delicious, what talented chefs you have, and the whole banqueting team worked their socks off to make everything run smoothly. We even commented to ourselves during the meal that they were so incredibly slick!! The wine and champagne was lovely too, we really enjoyed it all.
Special thanks go to Justine Rayner, Emily Lippiatt and Sarah Phillips. All absolute professionals and a credit to Lainston. Sarah was so efficient during the build up to the big day and answered our many questions with enthusiasm (and patience!) She was a delight to work with and made the planning so much fun too. Emily worked tirelessly on the day itself and was such a pleasure to have around, from the moment we stepped out of the car and she greeted us with congratulations, smiles and champagne!
We had the most amazing wedding day and loved every moment. We were lucky to have a beautiful crisp winter's day so enjoyed getting out into the grounds to have lots of photographs, in front of the avenue of lime trees and at the chapel ruins. It being so close to Christmas, the whole place looked so beautiful and there was a festive buzz in the air - just what we'd hoped for. It was lovely to chat to some of your other guests in the cedar bar after the wedding who had spent the whole Christmas period with you, how lovely!
Lainston House Wedding August 2014

What a fantastic day was had last Friday at our wedding at Lainston House. The setting is stunning and thankfully the sun shone all day. Abi Richards and the team helping to arrange our special day were fantastic and couldn't have done anything more to ensure that our day was one to remember. Our suite was breathtaking and a lovely touch to receive a complimentary bottle of bubbly in our room on our return in the evening finished off what has to be one of the best days of my life!
Thank you to everyone at Lainston House!

We had a beautiful day. The venue was beautiful, the food and the service amazing. An amazing day.
Attention to detail
By Mr Hurford, on 10 Oct 2012
I want to thank everyone at Lainston House for providing an excellent Wedding Reception on Saturday. Everything went like clockwork and our particular thanks to Helen, Abi and Larry for everything they did on the day; please pass on our thanks to them.
It was the attention to detail and the helpfulness/friendliness of the staff which stand out in my mind. Also the meal itself, which was described by many guests as the best they had ever tasted. Even the vegetarians remarked how exceptionally good the food was, even though they were deprived of the wonderful beef!
The whole day was tremendously successful, starting with a lovely service at St Bartholomew’s. We hired in 17 members of Romsey Choral Society and can recommend them if you ever need to rustle up a choir.
By Mr & Mrs Harvie, on 10 Oct 2012
What an amazing day we and all our guests had on 28th April. Lainston House is a stunning location and, combined with St Stephen's church, really helped to make our wedding day something special. It was without doubt the best day of our lives.
• The staff were all wonderful - polite, helpful, friendly and smiling.
• Larry was a superb master of ceremonies, keeping things moving smoothly on the day so we didn't have to worry about where we were supposed to be or what we should be doing, and a true gent with it.
• The kitchen did an incredible job. To deliver food for 79 people on time and of that quality is outstanding. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals, not least us as we knew what was coming!
• Abi, your calm, helpful guidance throughout was immensely appreciated. Thank you for helping us to make our wedding day what numerous guests have described as 'the best wedding ever'.
