belter of a day
On behalf of Claire and I, thank you so much to you and the staff for a perfect day. We had an absolute belter of a day and the staff at the house were incredible. Thanks :)Sent on 03/04/2020

We hope this feedback helps you and your staff
We would say overall our experience was good, but with a few small issues. We appreciate the rooms we hired were free when we bought the food and drink package, which compared to other wedding venues was a very well priced. We hope this feedback helps you and your staff, especially as your business grows and more people discover the potential of using the zoo as a wedding venue. The Mansion house and zoo is stunning and many of our guests commented on the beautiful and fun setting that it offers. We thought it was fabulous on the day and the staff had decorated the room beautifully, just how we wanted it to be. The main one being dietary requirements. I discussed on a number of occassions the need to cater for 2 non-dairy guests. However, on the day there was not enough non-dairy food. Unknowingly one guest (who struggles with faitgue) was given the small portion of non-dairy believing it was for her, which left my new mother in-law with no non-dairy free food to eat. Staff on the day did try their best and were very sorry, but she was left eating a large sandwich for her dinner. This was very disappointing. We think the crucial feedback is that communication between staff needs to improve. There was lots of communication before the wedding day itself. Staff were always friendly and answered queries in a timely and very polite fashion. We hope this feedback is taken as constructive feedback, we want to stress that we loved the venue and that staff did try their best on the day but seemed to struggle with the food and with getting the silent disco set-up in time.Sent on 03/04/2020

Mother of the Groom thanks
I was Mother of the groom at the above wedding and just wanted to send my personal thanks to all who were involved in helping us have such a great time. It was a wonderful day in a spectacular setting and must have taken a lot of hard work from a lot of people. I would like to say particular thanks to Alan, ( for sorting out the cake for me), and to Darren and Taylor for generally helping me out, but especially for their encouragement and help in preparing a special little surprise for the bride on her wedding morning. It made a special day even more special. Thanks so much to all. LesleySent on 03/04/2020
