August 19
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Stewart, on 03 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2019

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....
Venue Service

By Dawn Harron, on 21 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Jun 2019

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!!

Thank you so much for such a beautiful review. It was an absolute pleasure helping to organise your big day. We wish you both all the happiness in the world, as you two are a match made in heaven. Look forward to seeing your gorgeous photos soon. Kayliegh x

Baby shower!
Venue Service

By Daanish Babar, on 12 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019

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
Venue Service

By Dr and Mrs B Mathews, on 15 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Aug 2018

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
Venue Service

By ciro ascione, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 19 May 2018

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 Mr C and Mrs RK Ascione

Absolutely Brilliant Staff and venue
Venue Service

By Katrina and Daniel Moore, on 18 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017

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.

Wonderful Venue & Amazing Staff!
Venue Service

By Victoria Storey, on 03 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2017

My husband and I got married at Putteridge Bury earlier this year. We chose the Orchid package, which I can’t recommend highly enough to anyone considering getting married here. Choosing this package meant that my husband and I could tick things off our planning list straight way, such as chair covers and venue flowers which all helps with the stress of planning a wedding. All our guests commented on how beautiful and grand the venue was and how impressed they were with Kayleigh and the Putteridge Bury team. Everyone from the Putteridge team was so supportive and friendly, helping us both feel at ease knowing that they had everything sorted and organised, allowing us to both relax and enjoy our day. Kayleigh was fantastic, she always replied quickly to my emails, especially to my long emails full of questions especially as we got closer to our day. I really can’t praise Kayleigh and her team highly enough! Our guests also were very positive about our food and everyone commented that it was some of the best wedding food they had ever had. If you are looking for a venue that definitely go and look at Putteridge I am sure you won’t be disappointed!

Kayliegh Nimmo, Wedding & Events Manager at Putteridge Bury responded to this review on 04/09/2017 10:21:06

Thank you so much for your kind words, I will make sure I pass them onto the rest of the team. It was an absolute pleasure to be part of your big day and I wish you both the very best for the future.

Beautiful venue, great food, friendly staff
Venue Service

By Neil and Sarah, on 24 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Mar 2017

Got married here on 4th March 2017, could not fault anything on the day or the planning before. Kayleigh was extremely prefessional and answered all my questions, nothing was too much trouble in the planning stages. On the day Maxine was friendly and in control, we didn't need to worry about a thing, it had all been thought of before due to years of experience. I lost count of how many guests commented on the quality of the food, and how the waiting staff managed the children (we had a few young children and toddlers). So glad we chose here, couldn't have wished for better.

Beautiful venue and amazing staff
Venue Service

By Katie, on 18 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2016

I got married here on the 27/08/16. The venue and grounds are beautiful and was perfect for our wedding photos. But what really makes this venue is the amazing staff - every stage of planning our wedding day with putteridge-bury all the staff were friendly, professional and very helpful. On the day everyone worked so hard to make the day run smoothly I never worried about a thing. A lot of our guests have also complimented us on the great staff and service. I would like to especially mention the duty manager for our wedding, Jan who really went above and and beyond all expectations on the day! Thanks again putteridge bury for such a fab day xx
