Andrew and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all the wedding team at Pontlands Park for making our wedding day so special! Everything went perfectly on the day and exceeded our expectations and this was due to the fantastic organisation and communication by all the managers, also nothing was ever too much trouble during organising the wedding. The venue is absolutely stunning and was commented on by all the guests as was the professionalism and helpfulness of all the staff. Thank you again to everyone for making our day such a memorable one, we will certainly be using the venue again for any future celebrations.

Daughters Wedding
Venue Service

By Amanda, on 22 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Feb 2018

We held Our daughters wedding reception at Pontlands Park on 3rd Feb 2018. Although we had not seen the hotel until the day before the wedding we had lots of emails and phone calls prior to the reception. We found the coordinator helpful, all our requests and worries were sorted. When we saw the Marquee it was all and more than we had expected and with a few tweaks here and there we have the venue looking beautiful. The wedding day went without a hitch we had red carpet treatment on arrival with canapes and bubbly and the perfect setting for photographs any bride could wish for. The staff were attentive professional throughout the day. Dinner was everything we were promised it would be. Served beautifully our veterinarian guests delighted and impressed with their meal. The chef, staff and venue was everything and more than we expected. Supper ended the day with buffet all our guests were happy and well catered for. Thank you to all the staff for helping to make the day special for our daughter and son in law. Excellent service beautiful setting.

Extra touches

By Marina, on 22 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Jan 2018

We held our wedding at Pontlands Park and it couldn't have been more perfect. The staff were very helpful and attentive and had laid our reception room out just as we wanted it, and with extra touches that we weren't expecting. The food was delicious and served promptly. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue.

Best Day

I recently had my wedding at Pontlands Park Hotel. It was amazing from the organisation leading up to the day and the day itself. The staff were second to none on the day, they couldn't do enough for us. The room looked gorgeous and the food was outstanding. All my guests kept commenting on how lovely it was. Thank you so much for making mine and my husbands day so wonderful.

The Perfect Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Leah E, on 24 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Jul 2017

We were married at Pontlands Park a couple of weeks ago and were absolutely over the moon with how our day went and what a perfect venue it was for us. ALL the staff were so friendly and helpful and that made such a diffence on the day! Nothing seemed too much trouble and they all were happy and bright which is just what you need at a wedding . We chose Pontlands mainly for the lovely marquee and beautiful gardens and were not disappointed. We had 80 people for our main reception and about another 60 for the evening and the space in the marquee and the adjoining covered outside area and bar was an ideal space. We had so many compliments on the venue from our guests and I genuinely would find it hard to fault. The food was great and we had a lot of dietary requirements which Pontlands catered for with no fuss. The large room above the reception where I stayed the night before the wedding was ideal for me and my 5 bridesmaids to get ready... It was comfortable and plenty big enough. All in all, I would not hesitate in recommending Pontlands and would like to say a big thankyou to everyone there who helped our day to be so fantastic

Wonderful Sumer Wedding
Venue Service

By Loire, on 24 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 06 Jul 2017

I had the privilege of walking my daughter down the aisle in the lovely surroundings of Pontlands Park Hotel. My wife and I had stayed for a few days prior to the wedding and were extremely impressed by the service and general standards of the accommodation. Indeed we stayed in room 47 which is on the ground floor just by the marquee and was large and beautifully decorated. The location proved to be invaluable during the days leading up to the wedding and during the wedding day. The staff deserve special mention. Despite my very short notice request they were able to accommodate 13 guests for dinner the night before the wedding. Even the special requests from my grandsons for food not on the menu was no trouble and the chef provided them both with specially cooked chicken and chips. The wedding day went off without a hitch. Certainly the planning had been in progress for about a year. But the location and beautiful gardens provided a setting second to none. Our memories of walking the beautiful gardens with drinks and canapés following the ceremony will last forever. So on to the wedding breakfast. It was beautifully dressed and proved just right. The menu was nothing short of stunning. I have eaten in many places but the wedding food was truly memorable and was favourably commented on afterwards. Our compliments to the chef and staff. We used the wonderful spa facilities before and after the wedding day and this provided a chance to relax and charge/recharge the batteries. My only regret was that the day was not any longer. To Pontlands Park and it’s staff thank you for a wonderful wedding day with memories that will never be forgotten

Beautiful location using their Marquee. The grounds framed photographs superbly and the drinks and canapés made for an ideal setting for summer wedding. The canapes were superb. The wedding breakfast food was lovely, the only trip up were rather dry profiteroles but this was not enough to take any of the professional shine off the day. The staff were numerous, efficient and friendly, George you are a star and managed all aspects with calm an unobtrusive efficiency, thank you. If you are considering a wedding venue in the chelmsford area then may I humbly suggest that you stop your search and book here, I am confident that you will be very pleased that you did! Well done Pontlands Park

My son and daughter in law had an amazing wedding here last Friday. I would like to thank all the staff involved at Pontlands Park in hosting a fabulous wedding day From the moment the preparations and celebrations started until we finally left on the Saturday we felt we had been in the hands of a very professional team Everything ran like clockwork but also managed to have an extremely personal feel to it We have been inundated with numerous comments from the guests to say how lovely the whole experience was including the venue, the marquee, the outside gardens, the rooms, the food, the staff – in fact just about everything!!! Pontlands Park and the staff played a huge part in creating such a lovely memorable day for our families and friends but most importantly for the happy couple Would highly recommend this as a place to hold a wedding

Wonderful setting for sons wedding
Venue Service

By Phil, on 30 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 09 May 2016

Requiring a small intimate room for a civil wedding ceremony followed by dinner, we approached Pontlands Park to see if they could meet our needs. Lisa and Jason could not have been more helpful. They provided a room overlooking and opening up onto the garden where champagne was served after the ceremony. Then onto a three course dinner with excellent food and wine. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Thank you Jason and Lisa for a memorable day.
