THANK YOU
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Cunnington, on 03 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 24 May 2019

OUTSTANDING - Its difficult to know where to start, I don't think there are enough words to articulate the thanks we owe you. OLD THORNS made our wedding day, the best day. Tiffany, our biggest thanks goes to yourself - you were our main point of contact for over a year and we really took advantage of that. We emailed you hundreds of questions, and you kindly and in a very timely fashion answered them all -nothing was too much bother (or at least you made it seem that way to us) Our wedding had some different/tricky elements to it and you handled it all with ease. Veryan, you are a forever in our hearts - you held our hands (sometimes literally) though those last few days of questions, unavoidable stress (from our family, not old thorns!), confusion and giddiness. We know the week of our wedding was extremely busy for Old Thorns with various conferences going on but you made us feel like our wedding was the most important and nothing was too much trouble. You allowed us to really enjoy the day - We didn't have to worry about a thing, we had 100% confidence in you and you delivered .

Big Thank you
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Thompson, on 03 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 18 May 2019

A big thank you to you all from us both for our special day. It was amazing, we loved every minute and didn't want it to end. You guys all work so hard and are always happy, friendly, professional and accommodating, you are all brilliant. The whole process has been so much fun, from booking, to tasting, the last details with V, the wedding day and the photo's on the golf course, the amazing food and the disco. Thank you for answering all my questions and putting me at ease. Everyone enjoyed the day and were so impressed with the hotel. I know some are planning their own visits to stay with you. A big thank you to all the staff, everyone was fantastic.

Huge Thank you

By Mrs Sturgess, on 03 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 10 May 2019

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for all the support and help we had not only on the lead up to the big day but on the day itself. The staff at Old Thorns have been amazing and so helpful. I was very nervous before we arrived but when I met with Emma the day before, I felt totally reassured that our plans had been organised with so much professionalism and attention. Our day was PERFECT! The accommodation in the apartments are amazing, there is so much space and it was like a home from home, so very comforting. The food was well presented, tasty and served at a good pace. The service was outstanding. Everyone I came in contact with was friendly, smiley and so attentive. The resident DJ played some great music that helped set the tone of the evening and got everyone up dancing. The external suppliers we had booked were instructed well without me having to be involved so the pressure of making sure everything was right on the morning was taken away from the bride. Old Thorns has always been a special place to me and my now husband and was just the most magical place for us to get married. We could not have wished for anything more.

Special day

Now that Dan & I are back from our honeymoon and settled into married life we would like to take the opportunity to say thank you for everything you did to help us on and in the run up to our special day. Everything was perfect and it truly was everything we had hoped for and more. We would particularly like to sing the praises of Ashley who looked after us exceptionally on the day, nothing was too much trouble from carrying mine & the bridesmaids handbags to locating my flip flops when my feet were sore! He is a true asset to your team & we feel he deserves recognition for his hard work, everything was seamless! I will see if I can perhaps attach a few photos of the day to another email for you to have a little nosy at. Thank you again for everything, no doubt Dan & I will be coming to you guys for some well deserved breaks in the near future,

Thanks and more...

Thank you just isn't enough to express how amazing this weekend was. It was unbelievable, and in due time please trust that Alex and I will take some time to thank you properly for everything you have done. God, that sounds dodgy but you know what I mean!!! The whole thing from start to finish was perfect. Faultless. Evie is the most remarkable woman and I adore her. Please let her know that she will receive (when we have time, but soon) something to thank her too. I hope my guests were not difficult in any way for the team. Anyway, after we were wed, my wedding certificate was placed in the safe for safekeeping and we forgot about it. Can you check to see if it's there and we will collect it later today. Oops! We will be writing to the hotel manager to express our thanks and gratitude also, and I hope you and Evie and the entire team will be recognised for your efforts. I also think you should be charging more for weddings. An experience like ours is almost priceless. It was the best day of my life, and you made that happen. What a gift to give us. Thank you.

A Huge Thank You

By Scott & Sally Taylor, on 07 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 23 Jul 2016

A huge huge ‘Thank You’ to you and Simone for making our Wedding Day truly ‘Perfect’. Tiffany for all your patience, reassurance, advice and understanding, in planning our day with us, for so many months. Simone was absolutely amazing, we had no problems at all. She was constant all day non stop in making sure everything went to plan. She had a lovely sense of humour, we really had a giggle she was fantastic! she made me feel like a Queen!. So many of our guests had given us such wonderful comments on how organized the day was, from start to finish, how lovely the food was, absolutely everything!, nothing negative at all. That was all down to you all. We did bump into Dave Allen on the day and told him how wonderful and perfect you had all made our day for us. We do sincerely hope he did pass this onto you. A relative of Scott's is a hotel Manager in Emsworth and also plans a lot of Weddings, he made such lovely comments too, in how organised and enjoyable the day was and admitted he normally has something to be negative about at other hotels, but, could not fault anything! I thought that was a great comment to pass to you!. We really cannot thank you all enough, I know there was a lot of your colleagues also involved in the day and we would really appreciate it if you would be able to pass our thanks onto them also. They did not go unnoticed for all their hard work. Everyone involved in our day were such a great credit to Old Thorns and we would like it to be noted. I will pass on some pictures to you also soon. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

With Thanks

Now that a few weeks have passed and we are back from our honeymoon with a bump, Matt and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team at Old Thorns who made our big day such a success! Since coming back we have been inundated with comments from our friends and family telling us what a wonderful day they had and what a fantastic venue it was. And we totally agree! A big thank you to yourself of course for all your help with the planning and organisation of the day! We would also like to say a special thank you to Justina, our banqueting manager for the day. She was an absolute star who made sure the day ran perfectly. Please do pass on our thanks to her and I hope she knows how much we appreciated all of her help and guidance on the day! Thank you to all of you for ensuring we had an amazing day that we will never forget.

On behalf of Donna and myself, we would like to say a massive thank you for last weekend - the whole day was magical and the setting was just perfect. We would like to say a massive thank you to Tiffany for looking after us right the way upto when you handed over to Zara – answering all our questions and always being at hand to support us no matter what the query. We would also like to say thank you to Zara for really looking after us on our special day and ensuring everything ran perfectly. We will always have amazing memories of the day and again thank you for making it so special. We will make sure we do a review on Trip Advisor as requested by Diane and we will be back in a years’ time to mark our anniversary? All the best

We just wanted to say a massive Thank you to yourself and the team for making our day truly flawless. From the moment we checked in the day before everything was perfect. I can not express how lovely all the staff were in assisting with our bookings, make up, guests, reception, photographs. Nothing was too much trouble. The hotel has truly perfected how to make a stressful time completely stress free. Our wedding was amazing and we loved every moment of. Zara on the day was amazing assisting us and directing us when appropriate. Justine in our pre wedding meeting was amazing she made us feel relaxed and looking forward to the day. The staff were so courteous and remembered little things we had my have mentioned in passing and that made us feel that we everything we had mentioned had been listened too. All our guests have commented on what an amazing venue Old Thorns was and what a perfect setting we had chosen. We are hoping to come back soon maybe for one of the tribute nights. I just wanted to say another massive thank you to yourself for all you help, prompt responses to my huge array of emails. Thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts.
