Perfect day at a perfect location.

We would both like to thank everyone at Roadford for all the done for our big day. From the booking, to the day itself.. everyone was very helpful and friendly, even when I had a major melt down the day before over decorating. Our wedding day ran perfectly thanks to the event managers and the girls serving the wedding dinner and at the bar where friendly and nothing was to much trouble for our guest . All the guest couldn't believe how gorgeous the location is, some couldn't help themselves and had to explore the surroundings. The kids at the wedding really enjoyed all the open space and the play Park. Roadford lakeside really is the perfect venue.

The day that was 'just us'

My new husband and I would like to say thank you - from the planning, to the putting together of our day to the day itself, everything was relaxed, professional and friendly.
I didn't feel at all stressed. The whole team were very supportive in everything we requested, and we were not easy to please. My wedding was not traditional at all, but this was all taken into consideration to make the day all about us, and what we wanted.
it was a very simple day and everything ran smoothly, It is a beautiful, calming location, and a dream for any couple looking for something to really stand out for the rest of their lives.

Great big thank you

We would just both like to say a great big thank you to you all for making our wedding three weeks ago so amazing. You ensured that everything went like clockwork and we did not have to worry about anything because it was clear that you had it all in hand. It was the little touches such as handing us drinks at the end of the path as we got out the car and everything following through the day. Big thanks to the chef as everyone comment how great the food was. We will be recommending you to all our friends.
