The most amazing venue!

Parklands was the most amazing wedding venue. From the moment we booked two years ago their communication has been great and everyone is so friendly and willing to help. Our day went so smoothly due to our great wedding co-ordinator Charlotte and they ensured to cater for everything we wanted to include in our wedding day! I also loved the little touches they did for us as bride and groom such as making sure we had canapés! So many guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and we were so lucky the deer came super close to become part of our day! The perfect venue!

Attention to detail - Not good

Quite a few issues had to be addressed...
No TV in rooms, Out of date sour Milk sachets left for Guests in rooms, Broken fixtures and fittings in expensive rooms, No milk available for Breakfast, 6 months Out of date Jam sachets left out for Breakfast. All this combined, makes it a poor standard for what was supposed to be a luxury Wedding venue. Luxury it certainly Is not...

Our dream wedding

The team at Parklands were brilliant right from our first enquiries, through to the coordination on the day. The food was incredible - our guests were really happy with the canapés, the 3 course meal and the evening food. We had our ceremony outside, by the fountain which was simply stunning. It really was our dream wedding… we’d love to do it all again!

Amazing! Stunning venue

We was absolutely blown away by the kindness and professionalism of all of the staff at Quendon Hall, they went above and beyond for us. A fair few of our guests had allergies and they was spot on with it all. Every single one of our guests were impressed with the whole day and said how amazing the food was and how lovely ALL off the staff were, it was the only venue we viewed and we knew our day would just be magical there, and it was ❤️

A lovely venue with room for improvement

Our wedding took place in May 22 and the venue was lovely and the event manager made our special day run really well. Improvements could be made to the advance planning and communications though, with the organisation sometimes feeling disjointed. The staff are mostly professional and helpful though. Corkage and wine prices are high in our view.. some of our guests reported uncomfortable beds

Just Perfect!

I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you to you and all the team for making our day on Saturday so special.

Everything was so easy and I didn’t have to worry about anything as I knew you had it all under control and it would all be done!!!

Thank goodness the wedding was last week as it all seems to have gone a bit mad, so hoping it’s not affected too many of your weddings.

I will send some photos across when we get the professional ones.

Thanks again, yours and teams work made our day just perfect.

Thank you so much for everything that you have done for us. The day was exactly what we had imagined and couldn’t have gone any better. We are very grateful for everything that you have done,

We want to extend our thank yous to all of the team that have helped us on our wedding journey, . It was lovely to have all of you there on our day on Saturday.

Incredible!

I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you. We are so grateful for everything you did to help us have the perfect day. You were so helpful, always on hand and everyone commented on how smooth the wedding went.

We can’t believe it was a week ago already! And the weather today is awful we got so so lucky.

Aside from being late and stressed at times we had the best day ever and you played a huge part in that. The venue was incredible, staff polite and helpful, food lovely and so on!

Honestly thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. Sorry it’s taken a week but it’s been a bit of a whirlwind we are only just coming out of our little bubble!
