Most beautiful Venue

We chose Longstowe as our venue for our big day because it was just so beautiful! Mercedes and William were very welcome from the first visit! It was so lovely to meet and speak to the owners or the amazing venue. We had the most magical day at Longstowe🤍

Absolutely fantastic.

I cannot recommend this venue highly enough. For an English country wedding you cannot really ask for anything more. Beautiful grounds and an excellent marquee which is entirely weather proof. Mercedes and her team are extremely professional and efficient. We felt very well looked after from the first moment and our big day was unforgettable. A heartfelt thank you to the Longstowe team.

A fantastic venue and a brilliant team

Where to start but apart from saying how brilliant the entire team and Longstowe Hall are and what a venue! From the moment we went to see Longstowe Hall and the warmth we felt from Mercedes we knew it was the place for us. No question was too small for Linda to answer and she helped me throughout the planning process. Walking us through the day in our pre-planning meeting was invaluable and they really do know what they are doing. On the day everything was immaculate, from the Great Hall, the gardens, the reception room to the support and organisation of all of our suppliers. I couldn't recommend Longstowe Hall enough, you gave us a magical day and we will be forever grateful for you being a huge part of it. Mr and Mrs Riley

Book this venue!!!!!

From the day we bookedLongstowe Hall for our daughter's wedding we had every confidence we would be looked after on the day. Linda and Mercedes head an incredible team and our very high expectations were exceeded at every turn. Efficiency, professionalism and friendliness were the name of the game throughout. A very personalised approach was given and nothing seemed too much trouble.. Before the day emails were promptly answered, meetings were held so everything ran smoothly and on the day itself the organisation was seamless. Book this venue- you will be delighted with your choice! A fantastic, beautiful setting with excellent organisation to boot.

Fabulous Venue, Marvellous Team

Not only is Longstowe Hall an absolutely stunningly gorgeous venue, the team who run the events are fantastic. Linda and Mercedes made all the wedding planning so incredibly easy and then on the day Linda was there to help and ensured the reception ran smoothly.

The grounds are immaculate and the marquee was the perfect space for keeping all the guests together without it feeling crowded. Both the grounds and the marquee have the 'wow' factor, this really is a venue you must go and look at.

But as mentioned what really makes this venue a 5*+ venue, is the team working there. They answered all questions and queries incredibly quickly and really wanted us to have the best day that we possibly could. My partner and I love crafting and made a number of things for the wedding and the team were so helpful is enabling us to put our own stamp on the day. Then on the day Linda was there helping with guests and ensuring everyone had a marvellous time.

Longstowe Hall and the team provided us with the most marvellous wedding day and I cannot thank them enough for that.

I cannot thank you enough

I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful day everyone enjoyed at Longstowe. All of the organisations you suggested were lovely to work with - very organised, pleasant and got the job done. Food superb, even for Irish farmers. All I can say is that we were delighted.

Wow!

I recently had the pleasure of attending the wedding of a close friend who got married at Longstowe Hall. Well, what can I say other than, WOW!
What an absolutely stunning venue this is!
The staff were all so smart, attentive and friendly. My friend and her new husband, said that the ladies behind the scenes who helped everything come together over the past two years, gave them endless support, advice and reassurance. This was evident in how flawless the day was, and I know it will be treasured in everybody's memories forever, (makes me want to renew my vowels there)!
If you are thinking of having your wedding at this venue, you really will have the best day of your life. Words really don't do it the justice it deserves!

Perfect Wedding!!!

I had my wedding reception at Longstowe Hall and it was just perfect- the staff, the location, suppliers, everything about the day was just amazing!
All the help from Linda at Longstowe in the organisation of the wedding was just brilliant, she really knows what she is doing and was so helpful. Providing trusted suppliers, so much knowledge and our pre wedding meeting that was so reassuring before the big day, I couldn't have asked for anything more, I knew my day would run smoothly because of the capably hands we were in.
Thank you so much for making our day so special, all our guests commented on how beautiful the location is, it is stunning and I cant wait to get our wedding photos!!!
Thank you everyone at Longstowe for all your help in making it a beautiful day!

Beyond all Expectations -

Our Daughter had her wedding at Longstowe Hall on 22.9.17, everything was perfect, including the weather!. The venue and gardens are amazing, but for me having Linda and Mercedes guide us through with their expert knowledge, sharing of information and attention to detail made the wedding. We have received a great many compliments on both the venue, and the front of house staff. We would like to say that the food supplied by Big Day was perfect and just like the taster session.

We had regular contact, discussed what the theme would be and how best to achieve, then a few days prior to the wedding we had a final meeting to make sure we all knew what was expected - Great communications throughout.

We are very grateful to Linda and Mercedes for all their help and advice absolutely true professionals and greatly recommend them.

Customer service was very poor!!!

I recently had my wedding at Longstowe Hall, the Venue and setting is beautiful however the customer service was not. My wedding day was ruined due to unnecessary issues which could have been resolved in a better manner. I would not recommend Longstowe to anyone. I have since learnt other couples have been unhappy with the service. We thought we had done our research but since having had the wedding and speaking other people who have used the venue, confirmed that we are not the only couple to have had an unpleasant experience.

The staff are just fantastic!

On the day I felt nothing but relaxed. All was taken care of and had no worries at all. The venue together with all the suppliers associated created the perfect wedding day for us! All of our guests commented on how stunning the house and grounds were. We got married on the Island and that was just breathtaking.

Thank you will never be enough to Mercedes, Linda and the Team who work so incredibly hard to give every couple the perfect wedding day. We will look back on our wedding day with the fondest of memories. If we could do it all again, we could not recreate or top the day that we had.

Thank you so so so much for everything!!!

Your behind the scenes production was amazing

Our daughter's wedding on 26th August was the most magical day and with your planning and attention to detail you made the day so special and everything flowed so smoothly. The Cambridge Dining Company food was superb and your 'behind the scenes production ' was amazing.
