belter of a day
Venue Service

By Claire & David, on 03 Apr 2020Date of Wedding - 02 Oct 2019

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 :)

We hope this feedback helps you and your staff
Venue Service

By Kirsty and Nicholas, on 03 Apr 2020Date of Wedding - 24 Aug 2019

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.

Mother of the Groom thanks
Venue Service

By Lesley, on 03 Apr 2020Date of Wedding - 08 Aug 2019

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. Lesley

what can only be described as a brilliant day

By Rachel, on 03 Apr 2020Date of Wedding - 13 Jul 2019

Just a wee email as we are just back from honeymoon and want to thank you and all of the staff at the Zoo for what can only be described as a brilliant day. Every single one of our guests had a wonderful day and we feel so lucky that we chose your venue. You have been absolutely brilliant, as was Darren and the other male event's manager (whose name has completely slipped my mind!) if there is a way for me to pass this on to your manager or formally pass on my delight with all of you please let me know as I would like you all to get the praise and recognition you deserve. We can't thank you all enough! We've had no formal photos back yet, but as soon as they are in we will pass them on and will be delighted for you to use any of them. We will certainly be back at The Zoo and look forward to seeing you and speaking to you soon. Best wishes, Rachel

All our guests had a great time
Venue Service

By Ian & Fi, on 03 Apr 2020Date of Wedding - 04 May 2019

Hi Laura, Thanks for your email. We only have thanks for making the run up and the day itself such a great experience. Thanks to yourself for making the lead-in easy and pass on our thanks to Darren and Alan for executing the day smoothly. The meal was good. For myself the tartlet was a bit lacking in Brie so a bit dry. I really enjoyed the rest of the meal. All our guests had a great time, even my Dad, so that is praise itself! We will forward some of our pictures once we receive them as neither of us took any on the day. All the best Ian & Fi

We would both like to say a big, big thank you to all the team involved in Nick & Lisa's wedding on Saturday. Everyone was so friendly and helpful especially with supporting the needs of the older members of the wedding party. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. From beginning to the end of the day we all felt so looked after and had a fabulous time at a magnificent venue. Once again our heartfelt thanks for helping make this a very special day for Nick & Lisa and for all their guests. Best Wishes Steven & Jo Leek
