Beautiful venue and amazing staff!

Firstly we would just like to say a HUGE thank you to Kayliegh & Tracey for the continued help and support over the last 4 years. I know I have emailed/phoned a lot! You have both always been so helpful, friendly and professional.

I would also like to say a HUGE thank you to Debra (who couldn’t do enough to help with our little boy!) & me!

We have had so many compliments from our guests commenting on how beautiful the venue was, how delicious the food was and how friendly, helpful and polite the staff were.

Nothing was too much trouble and you all fulfilled requests when required.

Me and Ben had the best Wedding Day we could have wished for. We both felt so at ease and I did not worry once about anything or how anything looked (I like to be in control) as I knew Kayliegh and her team would fulfil our wishes.

You guys exceeded them!

The evening was equally amazing! My evening guests commented on how yummy the food was and how great the atmosphere was.

Thank you for everything, you really helped make our day magical.

All the best,
Mr & Mrs Maddison

Out of this world!

Thanks so much to everyone at Putteridge Bury (especially Kayleigh) our wedding was perfect from start to finish and even before that, the help and support from the team bringing our dream wedding to life was second to none! From hog roasts, fireworks to flying our own flags…., it was everything we wanted and more. All of our friends and family couldn’t believe the setting, views and service and often still say it was the best venue/ wedding they have been to, as the bride and groom… we completely agree! Thanks so much to everyone at Putteridge for bringing our dream wedding to life!!!

A perfect wedding venue

We had my son’s wedding at Putteridge Bury and we could not have had chosen a better venue. All the staff at Putteridge were so helpful and kind and made the wedding perfect. Kayleigh was a fantastic wedding coordinator who made sure the day ran so smoothly. The food was outstanding and the reception area and tables looked amazing. A lot of the guests said it was the best wedding they had been to so a big thank you to all at Putteridge who helped make the day so special for us all.

Putteridge Bury - perfect day

We couldn’t have asked for a better venue than Putteridge Bury for our wedding. Everything ran smoothly from start to finish and Kayliegh was on hand throughout. All the Putteridge Bury team were amazing providing the personal touch which makes all the difference. We had lovely weather so were able to make the most of the beautiful grounds. Can highly recommend this venue.

August 19

We looked at Puttridgebury about 18 months ago and thought it was the perfect venue, but equally we had a good feeling when we met Kayleigh & Jan.
Consultations with the 2 were simple, clear and we felt that they couldn’t do enough for us.
Leading up to the day Kayliegh practically became my PA and she really looked after me and reminded me of things I’d actually completely missed.
Nothing was too small or too big them to handle.
Needless to say our reception went superbly well and we can’t thank Kayliegh and Jan enough for what they did.

Putteridge Bury - amazing from start to finish....

We had our fairy tale Wedding breakfast (93) and Reception at Putteridge Bury (140) at 3pm - midnight, for the wedding breakfast (93 guests).

The stars for us were Kayliegh and Jan from the Wedding and Events team - they were brilliant !!! Absolute professionals in every way but they both cared passionately about our special day and made sure we had it!!! From showing us around the venue a year before the actual wedding day, to holding a superb food and drink tasting evening, to offering recommendations for service providers when we had cancellations and just being there on the end of the phone when I was requesting help with ideas or just having a panic, nothing was too much trouble for these ladies. On the actual day and evening, Jan was with us the entire time, providing the personal touch and ensuring everything ran smoothly.

We went for the orchid package so had arrivals drinks, hors d’oevres, a sit down 3 course meal and wine - wow!! The roast lamb was out of this world and had every guest commenting!! All of the food came out at the same time and was delicious!! The staff did a great job between them and the venue catered for vegetarians too. It was worth every penny!!! The bar staff also need a mention for being efficient.

We were blessed with the sunshine and so were able to enjoy the breath taking grounds of Putteridge Bury and now have some beautiful wedding photos as a result. The 8 children we had at our day spent their time outside enjoying the grounds.

To summarise our time at Putteridge Bury - it was truly amazing we cannot fault the fantastic venue, professional and efficient staff or stunning grounds.
Highly recommend this venue!!

Baby shower!

We held a baby shower here and I could not fault the venues service at all! The gardens were beautiful and worked perfectly for our gender reveal... All our guests were absolutely speechless and again could not fault anything! Although it was not a wedding, we would recommend this venue to everyone for any occasion! We will definitely be back for any upcoming weddings or birthdays! Thank you so much to the whole team.

Simon and Mia's Wedding Celebration

We expected that a reception at Putteridge Bury would be an enjoyable event but the reality far exceeded our expectations. The food was excellent. Mass catering can often be a bit disappointing but all the food was imaginative, well cooked and presented, and many of our guests commented on the deliciousness of the lamb and the trouble taken to give the children such an imaginative dessert not just ice cream and a wafer.
It was however, not just the food and the venue that made it such a great day. It was the staff. Everyone was so professional but also so welcoming and friendly and little kindnesses like making a cup of tea for an early arrival were much appreciated.
As a rule most ordinary people do not run big events and the whole thing can be quite daunting but Kayleigh and Maxine and her team took all the stress out of the day and made it a really happy experience, full of good memories.

Caris and Alessandro Ascione - Wedding on 19 May 2

We want to thank everyone at Putteridge Bury for making our son Alessandro’s marriage to Caris such a special day. We knew Putteridge Bury would be the dream venue for our son’s wedding from the moment we drove down the drive.
On the day, all our international friends were surprised by the level of professionalism of all the staff involved. We received many comments about the great quality and choice of food and drinks available.
Even the weather was on our side as the sun came out. The mansion and the gardens looked beautiful in full sunshine.
We are now waiting for the photographs which will remind us of a dream day for years to come.
We would certainly recommend Putteridge Bury to future couples looking for a venue to stage the best day of their life.
Again a warm thank you to Putteridge Burys’s management and staff

Absolutely Brilliant Staff and venue

If we could rate the venue and staff higher than 5 stars we absolutely would. We got married on the 2nd September 2017. We could honestly not have asked for a more lovely venue and staff. Everyone really did go above and beyond and you could tell that this was just the staff's genuine kind personalities and that they wanted to help.

Kayleigh was amazing all the way along. She was so organised compared to every other venue we had been too. As soon as we met with her we knew that our wedding would be organised and to to plan. Any queries we had she answered straight away and was always more than happy to help. A big thank you for all you have done.

Jan was amazing in the lead up helping to plan and was brilliant on the day. We had lots of children and my niece was feeling poorly. Jan took her off and got her a sandwich of her choice (tuna) in case she was hungry and laid her down for a rest. She also took our other 2 month old nephew off at dinner so that the parents could enjoy their food. She was so kind with all the children and her timing was impeccable through out the day making sure that everything ran like clockwork

My husband is not the most confident and was so worried about his speech Deborah was so kind and gave him some great encouragement (beer) and calmed him down as we were about to go in to the meal.

Dan is normally bad for leaving reviews but has been insistent that we tell you guys what a fantastic job you have done.

All our friends and family have commented on how great every member of staff was.
