Thank you for hosting the most incredible weekend.

By Mr and Mrs H, on 08 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Sep 2019

Myself, Andy and our families had the time of our lives. We felt so relaxed and at home we didn’t want to leave! It’s such a special house. All our friends and family have said what a great, relaxed and personal wedding it was and that was really down to the amazing venue and you and your fantastic team... You all made the experience so easy and special, all of your hard work behind the scenes didn’t go unnoticed- we really appreciate everything you did to make it the most perfect weekend. We honestly can’t thank you enough. We’ve spent everyday since reminiscing about our time at Pennard house- it’s a weekend we will never forget.

Thank you so so much!

Amazing wedding at an amazing venue
Venue Service

By Andrew and Jennie Scrivens, on 25 Feb 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Feb 2017

We booked our wedding at Pennard house as when we visited for the first time we just found it to be the most fantastic setting. From day one Harry, Georgina and La were attentive to our every need and then on the day it's self they were absolutely brilliant; meaning our special day went completely without hitch. The thing that we felt was so great was that we were helping to support a beautiful house that has been handed down through the generations to a wonderful family; a family that we now feel part of! This is the most amazing place that regular people can feel gentry for a day and we thank you so much for making our wedding so very special.

“ We have not long returned from Paris and we just wanted to say in the first instance a massive THANK YOU!!! We are still flying high from our incredibly perfect day, and long may that continue. There has been an absolute plethora of compliments, candid shots and precious memories that have been a constant stream of loveliness and provider of happy tears from friends and family! So in essence, “thank you” for all your help, guidance and excitement throughout our most wonderful journey.”

A huge thank you!
Venue Service

By Amy Stenner, on 25 Nov 2014

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard working leading up to the wedding and on the day. We had the best day ever, still can't get over how brilliant it all was! Pennard House was just perfect; our guests couldn't believe we had found such a setting! And the weather made it all the better. Thanks ever so much for being so relax and helpful throughout, and letting us make the coach house ours for the day. It really came together better then we could imagine! We received so many compliments on the food! The guests thought it was all amazing, particular favourites were the Mozzarella Risotto balls and mini sausages! One guest even said the wedding breakfast was her all time favourite meal, ever! Christian had the chicken and I had the vegetarian and both were superb! So thank you and your team for all the hard work that went in to it! Amy and Christian July 2014

Perfect In Every Way
Venue Service

By Freya and Andy, on 04 Jul 2013

We were married here on 1st June 2013 and had the most perfect day. This was largely due to Pennard House: the family who looked after us so well, the atmosphere of the place, the beautiful coach house, the rolling lawns and its location in the heart of our favourite county. We cannot recommend Pennard House enough. Many of our friends who have upcoming weddings are nervous because we have set the bar so high! We have so many happy memories of that place: we were married in the local church, at the bottom of the garden, where the bells rang out and confetti looked beautiful in the sun. Our photos were taken around the victorian pool and our guests drank cocktails on the terrace in the sun. The coach house was the perfect place to spend an evening dancing (and drinking the bar dry in our case!). Then to top it all spending the night in the beautiful house and waking up to have a delicious breakfast with our close family, honestly don't know what more you could wish for. If we could re-marry at Pennard House ever year for the rest of our lives then we would!

A wonderful venue
Venue Service

By Clare and Mark, on 15 Apr 2013

Pennard House was the best wedding venue we could have chosen. The house and gardens are just beautiful, and full of character. The coach house is an amazing place for a party, and we had so many compliments on the food. But it wasn’t just these elements that made our wedding so special. The Dearden family worked with us all along the way to make sure everything was just right for us as a couple. They were so friendly and helpful, and as a result we had a magical wedding day that was everything we’d hoped for and more.

Perfect day
Venue Service

By Patrick Schulenburg, on 16 Feb 2012

Everything about our wedding at Pennard house was perfect. The location is simply stunning! The rose garden by the ponds with the little gate leading up to the main house is magical. Pennard House has loads of character and certainly doesn't feel like your average venue. It feels exclusive and special but also homely and welcoming. It's a real family business and Martin and Susie worked really hard to make our day exactly how we wanted it to be.

Perfect wedding in a dream location!
Venue Service

By Jesca Scott, on 13 Feb 2012

There are many ingredients necessary for the perfect wedding and location comes very high on the list! Pennard House is the dream location where the English rural country idyll meets stately romance. We shall treasure the memories of our wedding day at Pennard House; walking to the Church "through the little gate" at the bottom of the lawn, celebrating with Champagne, canapes and jazz at the pool, discovering the romance of the rose garden and dancing hand in hand on the lawn. Thank you Susie and Martin for sharing beautiful Pennard House with us and our guests.
