Our perfect day!
All of our guests couldn't stop talking about what a beautiful venue we had chosen (even weeks after the wedding) and we'd recommend Offley Place to anyone in a heartbeat! Thank you to Nazlee and her wonderful team for their help and support in making our day as special as possible, we truly had our dream wedding!
Our Wedding at Offley place
From the first meeting right up to our final meeting a month before the wedding we were up to date with our plan of the day and made sure everything was as we’d planned.
Louise and her team ensured the whole day ran as we had spent months planning and we wouldn’t have changed anything.
My husband and I had the most amazing day and so did all our guests from the feedback on the beautiful venue and amazing food.
The staff at Offley Place made our wedding even better than we could have imagined.
Married at Offley
The perfect day
The professionalism and attentiveness on the day was noticed by many of our guests and we felt really looked after.
A special shout out to Angela who was our on the day coordinator. She went above and beyond to help us and we are so grateful. Thank you to everyone at Offley for making our day so special.
A great venue and amazing staff
The team were super organised and stayed in touch regularly with zoom meetings and back and fourth emails. They were very clear with their pricing and payment times and made everything clear! They were also so quick at responding to mails and answering last minute questions!
I highly recommend this venue to everyone if you want a seamless day and flexible staff!
Thank you Nazlee and the staff at offley place!
An unforgettable day
We were really impressed by how smoothly things went, in no small way due to all the behind-the-scenes work from the dedicated and experienced Offley staff. The professionalism of the whole team was evident throughout the day and we appreciated the gentle reminders about timings and proceedings, which were sensitive and unobtrusive. Our wedding planner, Louise, deserves special thanks for thinking of all the things we hadn’t and for giving us confidence that everything was in hand. This was all the more impressive given that Offley was hosting four wedding events on consecutive days that weekend!
We have memories that will last a lifetime and have heard wonderful feedback from our guests about their experiences too. Offley will always have a special place in our hearts.
Our Perfect Day At The Perfect Venue
A week on after finally marrying and we are still reliving the perfect day and could not have been more thankful with our supplier choices, especially Offley Place!
The venue is a truly beautiful blank canvas that allowed me to bring my rustic vision to life. No request was too much and all my questions (which were A LOT) were always answered.
Our guests absolutely loved the venue and our suppliers were impressed with the ease of it all.
An added bonus was having our nearest and dearest stay with us overnight. It truly felt like we had become lord and lady of the house for the night and waking up to our family over a lovely private breakfast was the icing on the cake as they say.
So if you are looking for a venue with stunning grounds and a luxury touch yet with a homely feel, then I would recommend Offley Place with no hesitation!
Thank you so much to Nazlee and the team for your support and kindness in making our day so perfect!
Amazing Wedding - couldn't have asked for more!!!
Finally got married!
Simply put, the venue itself is amazing, and the team was just as wonderful. Despite what must have been a very stressful time for them, everything with our wedding went without a hitch! The food was excellent and they accommodated all our needs without any issue. All our guests kept telling us what a beautiful place Offley was, which made our day even more special. The rooms are large and seem to have just been refurbed, so they were brilliant for our wedding night!
Despite having had to postpone our wedding from last year, we truly had an amazing day at Offley that was well worth waiting for.
Wedding of my dreams
Do not book with Offley. 18 months of misery!
After a lot of back fourth and them declining our request for a refund we opted to get a solicitor involved. Their legal representation was not of the highest standard, they had a number of grammatical errors and in their statements they even lied, we had proof to challenge them as we documented our communications over email.
We then decided to do a charge back via our bank before going down the legal route as we were not going to let them get away with stealing our money for a service they did not provide. Although they challenged the initial request from the bank they lost the case over all as they had no leg to stand on. They provided no service and no planning towards the big day as it was a dry hire.
The team were condescending and patronising throughout. They were able to do this as they had the venue paid in one lump sum and the ball was in their court, so they thought! I hope this has taught them a lesson and they tailor their service around the customer and not their bank account.
For anyone else still trying to get their money back don't let them get away with it, try charge back or take them to small claims, they have no case. They think they can run over hard working customers and see them as the “little people”.
Amazing place to get married!
