    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.
    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.
    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 the best day! Everything was perfect.

    The staff were absolutely amazing! They couldn't do enough to help us with anything we needed. All of our friends and family had great things to say too. Megan and Tegan were especially helpful, always making sure we were ok and I hear Megan has only been with you a few weeks. Seemed like she's been there ages! So a massive thanks to them as well as yourself, we will be sending a thank you your way once we are back. Thanks again! Mr & Mrs Nash x

    Awesome

    Morning Liz!!!!

    Well where do I start!!! It was absolutely awesome!!! From start to finish the day couldn't have gone better!! The staff...the food..the weather.. The atmosphere!!!

    There is so much we need to thank you for I don't know where to start!!! Special mentions to Tegan, John, Des, the night guys and the duty manager on that day (sorry I couldn't remember her name) were all outstanding! We were looked after so well!!!! There was nothing that was too much trouble!!!

    Everyone that attended has such a great time!! So much so that we are trying to come up with a reason to come back for another party!!

    Richy from star disco was brilliant the photo booth and the evening music went down a storm. Again we will be using him for another party!! I think the general feeling from the staff was that they enjoyed it to... I don't know what the process is with your recommended suppliers but I did say to Richy I would be recommending him to you.

    I have attached a couple of the professional pics that Gill took! As much as they are awesome it still doesn't do the day, the staff, the venue justice!!!

    I keep getting texts from everyone saying can we go back to last weekend or can we do it again! Haha

    It all wouldn't have been possible without you!! Thank you for making the process so easy and organized!!! You are a star and I would love to do a recommendation for you!?

    Also could you thank Sarah for me with our numerous room changes and also thank you for extending the room deal for the Sunday!!!

    I can't stop grinning, it was everything we had hoped for and more!!!!

    Thanks

    We had the pleasure of enjoying your hospitality at our son's wedding on Saturday 29th November. The whole reception was handled brilliantly and all the staff were courteous and professional. Even the staff waiting to make up the rooms in the morning were exceptionally polite and friendly. Please accept our thanks for helping to make this event such a joy. Such a lovely venue. Very well done.

    Kind regards

    Fabulous Wedding Day

    Hi Liz


    We had a fabulous wedding day and we would like to thank you for everything you did in making it so. Please also pass on our heartfelt thanks to Tegan and the team for the fantastic job they all did on the day - they were brilliant :-) I have also had numerous comments on how wonderful the food was both at the breakfast and the evening buffet so complements to the chef. Everyone has said it was the best wedding they had been to and I know they were not just saying that. Even David, the photographer commented on the wonderful venue and said it was the most enjoyable wedding he had done.



    Thank you again for making our wedding day the best day of our lives.


    Warm regards
    Chrissie & Derek

    Amazing Day

    Hi Liz,


    Hope you are well.


    Thank you for your kind wishes. We are not going away on honeymoon until February so after a few days off we were back to work unfortunately.


    We both had an amazing day and could not have asked for more from all the staff at Ponsbourne park. They were absolutely brilliant and everything ran so smoothly. Big thanks to you for all you assistance in planning our day. Without your help I am sure everything wouldn't have run so seamlessly and you made what could have been a very stressful few month completely relaxed and pain free.
    Neither myself or Dave think our day could have been better and we have everyone at Ponsbourne Park to thank for that.

    Hello liz,

    I hope your ok!
    Thank you for your email! I haven't had a chance to get back to you as I have been really busy! It's weird now that we don't have anything to talk about and we don't need to call or email you about anything!!

    Our wedding day was perfect, we couldn't have had it any other way, everything went to plan! We really enjoyed ourselves! The staff were brilliant, always around if we needed something!

    Thank you to you personally for helping us organise our day. You did an amazing job and helped with everything we asked for! The day couldn't have been any better!!

    Thank you very much

    Siobhan
