Please thank everybody who was involved in making this such a great day including Nicola. Everything ran so smoothly and nothing could have bettered the day. The food was outstanding (breakfast on Wednesday included!). We cannot recommend your venue and your services highly enough and we are so glad this is where we chose for the wedding. Thank you again to everyone who was involved especially the lovely people who took care of us during the day serving drinks and food etc. Please thank the chef especially. We had loads of comments from the guest about the high standard of the food. Oh, and the beds were so comfortable and much needed at the end of a long and busy day. We all slept beautifully!

Thank you to you and the whole team for making our day so so perfect on Saturday. From the moment we arrived to the effort you went to getting the flags delivered to Hotel du Vin, the whole experience was perfectly orchestrated and the best day of our lives.

We have been so impressed with the service provided from the moment of viewing the venue, right through to the big day on Tuesday. On the day, Claudine was amazing. Thanks to her the day ran as smooth as silk. She is a credit to the team for sure! We have had no end of people commenting that it was the best wedding they've ever been to. We would also like to thank the rest of the staff involved. The bar staff and waiters/waitresses were both friendly and professional, and the catering team were culinary masters. The food was divine! If we have forgotten anyone, we apologise. To all involved, we are eternally grateful. As beautiful as the Manor is, it is the wedding team that make it truly special.

Jack and I married on the 23rd of March 2019 at Manor by the Lake. To start off, the staff at Manor by the lake were superbly helpful and accommodating from the planning process to our wedding day. On our wedding day, Sarah (our event manager) and her team were just the absolute best, everything was executed to perfection, beyond our expectation. As bride and groom, we had no worries at all which from what I heard is most uncommon as weddings can be very stressful and we owe it all to Sarah and her team for taking care of everything for us. Beside us, all our guest (especially our parents) could not praised them enough for being so friendly and engaging. In addition, the food and drinks were spectacular, everything tasted so good from the canapé to our supper, followed by breakfast the following morning. Choosing Manor by the lake was the best decision we made for our wedding day and we would highly recommend them to everyone.

Thank you so much for all your amazing support on our wedding day on 1st December 2018! From all the planning to the lovely Cottage, to the wonderful Reception and Ballroom decorations when we returned from the Church ceremony.

Absolutely perfect, such an amazing day
Venue Service

By Lucy, on 26 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Dec 2018

We are so glad to have picked the Manor By The Lake as our wedding reception venue. From the first time we had a look around, to the patient, calm and organised email correspondence, we have felt so well looked after and in such capable hands. All our decorative special requests were beautifully done and we felt that everything was so personal to us and unique. The ballroom table decorations, cake table and all the rooms looked amazing, we couldn't have imagined it any better. Our favourite parts were being greeted with breakfast in the Butterfly cottage on the morning of the wedding, not having to worry about anything on our wedding day, special touches like some tea for us to take alone to have a few special moments together before the sit down dinner. It was so great that so many of our guests could also stay the night after our wedding reception, as they had travelled from many different countries. The food was so delicious and the chef was so accommodating for all the different dietary requirements. The honeymoon suite was gorgeous and a lovely touch was having breakfast with some of the guests the morning after, just before we flew off on honeymoon!

We had the most amazing day!
