Stunning gardens, great day with a few disappointments
I don't think you can easily beat these gardens. The Undercroft is lovely for the ceremony too. Can't wait for the official photos. We so enjoyed the setting, children and grandparents alike. The marquee was beautifully decorated and Hannah was really on the ball. What holds me back from recommending wholeheartedly is that while they charge a premium price, they couldn't overall give premium service. In the run up, communication with the catering team was a bit stressful. On the day, there is a lovely lady doing everything herself, but it the crucial morning hours of setting things up for the wedding, the grounds were full of prospective brides + families and she wasn't available to help and there was lots to do. Later, we also had to go into the catering tent to ask if they were going to actually cut up and serve the wedding cake and they seemed surprised to be asked. The main thing though that is tricky to share is that the owner didn't really seem to want a wedding going on in her house. She didn't exactly make everyone feel welcome and she came and put pressure on us leaving the room on time because of a 'client' that was coming later. It was actually quite a stress clearing the room on time and did put a dampener on the day. Then finally, the portaloos next to the marquee smelt terrible and weren't at all big enough to fit a big wedding dress in. But with all the merriment the guests didn't seem to mind or complain, and it really was a great day. We just think brides should hear about our experience if they're considering this venue. Specifically, if there is an option to pay more for better toilets, do it.Sent on 15/09/2021

My best day ever
Nettlestead Place is just amazing! We fell in love with it as soon as we saw the pictures of it then when we went to view it, we both just knew no where else would do. The house, the gardens, the setting is all just beautiful and Sharon the wedding co-ordinator was a god send and became a friend, she is so professional and kind. I can hand on heart say Nettlestead Place is my favourite place and would recommend it time and time againSent on 13/11/2019
! The food was gorgeous too. Our guests all said how wonderful every aspect of the day was and I truly believe Nettlestead is a special place for sure!

The best day ever
Where to start, Nettlestead Place is simply magical ! From the moment we pulled into the private drive we knew this was the place for our special day.Sent on 13/11/2019
With stunning gardens, a perfect back drop to the house which inside awaits you a truly special ceremony room that is the under-croft. The marquee reception is perfect, being nestled in the gardens just a floral footpath away from the house.
But if that hasn't sold you, then Sharon and Majestic Events are really the stars of the show. Planning a wedding is stressful and the team make the whole process a dream. Nothing is too much and attention to detail really goes a long way to making the day run as smooth as possible. Leaving you to enjoy your special day entirely.
Our Wedding Day was just simply the best day of our lives.
We cannot thank you enough for making our day so special. I’d do it again and again as it was perfect.
