It is just what you dream about
By Liz Beck, on 03 Feb 2015
I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful wedding reception at Osmaston Park. We all loved our day at my son Tom's wedding on Friday 18th July 2014. I wonder if you know how much the setting meant to two landscape architects and families who enjoy the beauty of natural surroundings. As the guests turned the corner in our wedding coach they were blown away by the beautiful scenery. It was truly something different, immediately delightful and everyone felt relaxed and chilled. During most of the free time from the wedding the guests sat outside watching the evening light change as the sun set over the trees and river. We all decided that this sight would be spectacular in all weathers and seasons. It is just what you dream about as parents especially when you are trying to get them through the formalities of a wedding!!
Although we weren't sure about having a marquee in the first place it turned out to be the best decision we made as it was spacious, light and airy and looked beautiful with the dance floor decorated with fairy lights. The fantastic thing about it was being where the house was it was set high on the hill with the original terrace which was superb for drinks and had the best views.
All the wedding teams and especially Andrew and Will worked hard and seamlessly to ensure that everything went smoothly and every guest was catered for - nothing was too much trouble.
If you want somewhere different and beautiful for a special occasion Tom's wedding guests down to the last man and very probably child would very happily recommend Osmaston Park.
The Wow Factor
By Jenni and James Grainger, on 03 Feb 2015
We recently got married at Osmaston on 6th October 2012 and couldn't have wanted for a more perfect location, view, party atmosphere and personal feeling the venue allows - personal both in what we were allowed to do with the marquee to make it feel like 'our own' venue, and personal in regards to the bespoke contact you have with the people who are helping put your day together (Sir Andrew, Will from Top Marquees etc).
They were all on hand throughout the planning process to make sure everything went as we wanted it to, and it was a lovely touch at the end of our night to see Sir Andrew there to ask if everything had gone okay and to congratulate us. From start to finish we felt very looked after and that everyone wanted us to have the best day possible, the way we wanted it; and we did!
We first saw the venue as just a field on a cold January morning before the marquee was erected and, even as a field, we were totally convinced that it was the location for us. None of the formality and the restrictions of a hotel, no-one for miles around except who we invited, the pure silence of the countryside until your music gets going, and the most stunning view over the lake you could imagine - akin to the view at any of Derbyshire's stately homes.
We would recommend the venue to anyone. Our wedding was everything we could have wished it to be and more and our guests certainly said the venue had the 'wow' factor.
Many thanks again Sir Andrew and Lady Philippa.
The most stunning, personal and idillic venue
By Theresa and Rob, on 03 Feb 2015
We came to see Osmaston Park just to give us an idea about the styles of venues and really weren't looking to have our Wedding in Derbyshire. We drove through the stone entrance, surrounded by nothing but rolling hills, beauty and animals! It was perfect and we asked you to see if the date was available whilst we stood in front of you!
Will at Top Marquees and Sir Andrew allowed us to make our day so personal, always on hand to ensure that the planning went smoothly and our day was the best it could possibly be. Thank you so much,
We would reccomend Osmaston Park to anyone, It really is the most stunning, personal and idillic venue
Everything we dreamed of
By Alexandra and Nicholas, on 03 Feb 2015
We came across Osmaston Park by accident and immediately fell completely in love with it. We knew straight away that we wanted to have our wedding reception there.
Our wedding day was everything we dreamed of. It was sunny for most of the day and we loved sipping sparkling wine on the lawns and posing for photos with the stunning backdrop of the lake and wood behind us. Even a thunder storm and heavy rain in the afternoon didn't spoil our day as we used the time to sit in the beautiful marquee and have our delicious wedding breakfast. As we finished our meal the weather cleared up and left a beautiful mist over the lake and rainbow above the trees.
If we were to do it all again we would not hesitate in booking Osmaston Park.
Our sincere thanks to Sir Andrew for supporting us with exploring all our ideas and for helping us to create our dream day at Osmaston Park
Osmaston Park...Look no further
By Iain and Lisa Ward, on 03 Feb 2015
After searching for wedding venues long and hard we came across Osmaston Park........search over! Even though we first visited on a damp, foggy day we just knew this was the venue for us. Previous venues had tried hard to sell themselves but Osmaston Park with it's stunning views and setting sold itself. On our first ever visit to the unspoilt village of Osmaston we passed a beautiful little church, perfect for the ceremony and only two minutes away!!! Sir Andrew made us feel most comfortable from start to finish and answered any questions we had promptly, from this we knew everything would be perfect. Our guests were more than impressed to say the least and the sun setting after a warm, sunny mid septembers evening finished our day with the most amazing photograph opportunities ever.
Osmaston Park.......look no further.
With all our thanks to Sir Andrew and Lady Phillippa

Our wedding at Osmaston Park was the most amazing day of our lives. We were lucky enough to get one of the few sunny days in 2012 which made the stunning setting even more beautiful. Our guests were so impressed with the views and very much enjoyed spending the day drinking Prosecco on the lawns.
When we were looking for venues we knew we had found our place when we first came down the drive. The view over the valley and the lake is unbeatable and provides a romantic and elegant backdrop for the photographs. Which people have said "Look like something out of Hello Magazine!"
The Marquee is very well presented and maintained with the dance floor and starlight ceiling perfect for after the sun goes down.
We had a ceremony at Ashbourne Town Hall and the drive to Osmaston was so pretty and a chance for us to have a little time on our own before we met up with our guests.
Thank you to Sir Andrew and the staff at Top Marques for all your help. Wish we could do it all again next year!
So supportive and friendly
By Maisam and Azin Tehrani, on 03 Feb 2015
Thank you so much to Sir Andrew and all the staff at Top Marques for all their hard work, you have been absolutely amazing! We had the most incredible day and the beautiful venue and marquee just made it even more special. Everyone we dealt with was so supportive and friendly even when we were hounding them with questions and requesting lots of information.
We fell in love with Osmaston Park as soon as we saw it, even though it was knee deep in snow! In fact we didn't even bother to keep our other venue appointments! All our guests were speechless at how gorgeous it all looked on the day and Maisam and I and our parents are so very grateful at the level of care, attention and patience that the team provided. You really did put our minds at ease throughout the whole planning process and it is a real credit to you that you provide such a high standard of customer care.
Thank you again for allowing us to have such a stunning location as our venue and we only hope we can come back one day for another special occasion!
By Nicola & David, on 03 Feb 2015
Thank you to Andrew and all the team at Osmaston Park. The location is absolutely beautiful, we could not of chose a nicer place to have our wedding, no other venue we visited compared to Osmaston. All our guests commented on the stunning setting and views across the park. We would thoroughly recommend Osmaston park to anyone looking for a wedding location in Derbyshire.....amazing!!

The first time I saw Osmaston park I was absolutely amazed. No other venue compared, the views and venue are just perfect and you get it all to yourself. The pictures have the incredible view in the background and the children had space to run around. We had a lot of comments throughout the day and since about the venue and I'm so glad we had the wedding there as it just made the day more perfect. Andrew and Will were both very helpful and friendly. The marquee is perfect for creating your own personalised wedding.
We went with Big on Taste as the caterers and the food was delicious and they let us create our own menu. It rained slightly in the evening, but there is enough space in the marquee that it made no difference. I'm still in shock that I got to celebrate the day in such a beautiful place. The day was simply perfect and Osmaston definitely made it unforgettable!

Words at times cannot truly express our feeling. We can honestly say that we were speechless when we visited the site. Osmaston Park was the first and only venue we viewed because it was love at first sight. We both immediately knew that this was the place we wanted to get married. The location provided romantic scenery and some difference to the norm. Everything about Osmaston gave us that unique feel, we did not think twice about booking. The grounds and marquee provided the perfect surroundings. The pictures that we have of our big day are amazing. All our guests could not stop complimenting on how beautiful the setup is. What more could we have possibly asked for?
Many thanks go to Top Marquees (UK) (esp. Will) for going above and beyond their call of duty to make our day that extra special. Organising things with them certainly helped to calm those nerves and ease any issues that can occur when preparing for any event let alone a wedding.
Not enough praise can go to Sir Andrew. From the first meeting we had with him until the wedding day he was very helpful. With every request, email, question and query you accommodated us in ways we cannot describe.
Everyone who attended our wedding had a fantastic day.
Thank you so much for the PERFECT day!
Best day of our lives
By Laura Ward, on 09 Sep 2011
If I had to conjure the most perfect, dreamlike, unspoilt location for a fairytale wedding then Osmaston Park is it. At our wedding in July everyone was blown away by the stunning setting and view of the park in all the different lights - from bright sun to dusk. What's amazing too is to be able to see the panoramic woods and lakes from inside the marquee because of the transparent sides. So many of our guests continue to tell us how they fell in love with this special and romantic place. There is something very magical about Osmaston.
Andrew and Top Marques were so helpful and supportive, both during the build up to the wedding and on the day itself. Everything ran smoothly thanks to the highly professional team there.
It really was the best day of our lives. Thank you, thank you.
Our amazingly perfect wedding venue
By Anthony and Ginette Clarke, on 04 Jul 2011
I am writing to thank you for all your help whilst we were organising our wedding at Osmaston Park on 28th May 2011. When we started looking at wedding venues we scoured the whole of the East Midlands for the perfect setting for my wedding day; Osmaston was the first place we visited and it captured our hearts from that moment on. No other venue compared with the beauty and stunning location that Osmaston holds; we booked two years before my big day content in the knowledge that we had made the right choice. During our wedding planning we had the full support and help from the team at Osmaston who couldn't do enough to help with our enquiries and any concerns we had. When our wedding day finally arrived everything was just perfect the marquee and grounds looked amazing and we had a wedding day which will be remembered forever. Our guests were stunned by the location and we still have family and friends e-mailing us weeks later to say what a fabulous day they had. Both Anthony and I would like to say a huge thank you to you for helping make our dreams come true and for going the extra mile, even to the point of your own expense of putting a gate in by the mill building so I could use this location for my wedding pictures (which are spectacular). We can't say enough good things about Osmaston to do it the justice it deserves but it will hold a special place in our hearts forever as our amazingly perfect wedding venue.
