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.

We would like to say a huge thank you for all you did to make Charlotte and James Wedding Day such a success. Nothing was too much trouble for you and all our requests were met. There have been so many comments on what a great venue it was and how well everything flowed. We were concerned last April when Charlotte and James were insistent on booking their wedding in a room that had just started to be built ! However, we have to say it surpassed all our expectations. I realise this isn't the right email address for Justina and I don't have the right one but can you pass on our thanks to her. She was brilliant! She ran the day so well, she was so efficient, giving us the confidence that we could leave it all to her. We can not sing her praises enough! Also, a thank you to all the staff involved and I know there were a lot of them. They were all attentive and I think importantly very smartly dressed! Charlotte and James are now in Jamaica , lucky people! Thank you again and would be great if you can forward this email to your Manager!

We just wanted to send you an email to say thank you for making our wedding truly amazing. We had a perfect day filled with laughter and a constant stream of happy tears and couldn't be happier with the way it ran so smoothly on the day. We have already recommended you to many family and friends two of which have booked for March 2017! Thank you again for all of your time, patience and attention to detail, we look forward to returning in the near future to show you some of our photographs.

I just wanted to drop you an email to express our thanks and gratitude for your help in the organisation of our daughter Helen's wedding last Sunday. It was the most wonderful day and everyone expressed how lovely everything was and how wonderful the venue was too. During the lead up to the wedding, all the wedding coordinators were extremely helpful and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. On the day itself (and at a meeting the day before), Every single member of staff we have dealt with at any point in time has been extremely polite and helpful. Everything was packed up after the event and left for us to collect the next morning in an extremely organised manner which was really helpful.

Thanks once again

Hi Tiffany/Sally-Ann We both wanted to send an e-mail to say a massive thank you for all the Old Thorns staff did to help make our wedding day go so smoothly – especially Shauna who was amazing on the day and helped make everything run so effortlessly smooth, but also catering/bar staff, the DJ, the golf buggy driver, reception...... they all contributed to making our day so special for both Sam and I and our guests. Thanks also to both of you for all your support and assistance with the planning of the wedding, which really helped make it so much less stressful than it could have been.
