Thank you so much for all your help and support in delivering a most wonderful wedding day that we will cherish forever. From the beginning when we first arrived at the Manor on an open day, the team have made this an amazing and simple experience for us. All our guests commented on how lovely the venue was, and also how relaxed the day felt. This wouldn't have been possible without the superb staff and their attentive approach to running the day. Thanks again for creating such a special wedding day for us both and the wonderful memories that will be with us forever.

Thank you so much for all that you did for us in the run up to, and on the day of, our wedding. Planning a wedding all the way from New Zealand could have been a really stressful experience, but from Day 1 you were always available to answer any of our questions! Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives thanks to you all. The Manor will forever hold a special place in our hearts!

Thank you

Perfect in every way!
Venue Service

By Shellie & Jac, on 11 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Dec 2017

Firstly, we wanted to say a huge thank you for our incredible wedding day. We thought it was literally perfect in every way and loved every single minute of our day. The whole team worked really hard for us and were absolutely fantastic from the moment we arrived. The planning team were super helpful and dealt with any worries or concerns that we had so from us both thank you so much. We also give our huge thanks to the Head Chef. We cant even explain how incredible his food tastes! Normally food at weddings isn't always the best but his food was spot on and there was not one guest who wasn't happy! This made our day and our guests thoroughly enjoyed it all too so thanks to the catering team for all they did. I fell in love with Manor by the Lake when we first visited in 2015. I did not even want to look anywhere else as I knew the minute we looked around this was the venue I wanted to say our vows in and I am so glad we did. I had dreamt of a white wedding, I cannot believe we actually had snow for all our pictures, it was the most magical day for us so thank you so much to every one of your team.

Thank you

Thank you for making our Wedding Day perfect

By Beth & Chris, on 06 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Nov 2017

We just wanted to say a big thank you to the team at Manor By The Lake for making our wedding day perfect. The team are fantastic and really made us feel at ease. We were always greeted with a smile and felt confident that the day was on track and running smoothly. Our guests raved about the venue and food and we couldn't agree more, it was amazing! It was lovely to feel that the memory of our day was not only special for us, but for our family and friends as well. I hope I'll be able to attend a wedding at the Manor one day so I can experience the day from the other side. We can honestly say our wedding was a day we'll never forget and that's really a credit all the team. Thank you for being a part of our day and for making it look and feel amazing.
