Our wedding venue...best day ever
We had our wedding here on 21st November 2015, it was the best day ever. Everything went according to plan, all the worries and stresses my wife and I had prior to the day soon disappeared.Sent on 09/03/2016
Firstly we booked the venue 15 months prior to the wedding and met with Liz the wedding coordinator on numerous occasions. Her attention to detail and commitment to make your day perfect in every way makes the wedding experience even better.
The wedding itself was awesome. It was perfect in every way. The staff were amazing, it was extremely organised, the food was perfect and everyone commented on what an amazing wedding it was. Our Toastmaster Des, wow what a guy! Everyone fell in love with him. We will have fond memories for years to come.
What is also amazing about this place are the location and grounds. Yes it was cold on our wedding day (something we expected for November) but it was sunny and this led to some amazing outdoor photos.
I would highly recommend Ponsbourne as your wedding venue; a huge thus up to Liz & her team for the best day ever. Thank you.
Amazing wedding venue
Ponsbourne is an ideal wedding venue. We wanted a venue which was grand enough to impress my American guests (giving the English experience) but comfortable enough for me and my other half to feel at home.Sent on 08/03/2016
The food tasting dinner was brilliant & we were easily able to choose a number of potential dishes.
All my family loved staying there and have said they would happily stay again!
However, what really set Ponsbourne apart was the staff that we encountered. Liz, the Wedding Co ordinator (and her team) were always on hand in the run up to the wedding, answering any and all questions & helping keeping us calm. All of the staff who worked that weekend were brilliant & practically bent over backwards to help us have the perfect day. They handled our last minute requests with a smile and by the end of the weekend, I was almost remiss to leave. My wedding day was exactly what I had hoped for and I couldn't imagine having it anywhere else!
We had an amazing day
Thanks for everything. Fantastic venue, staff were all really helpful, attentive & accommodating. A big thanks from both of us.Sent on 19/01/2016
