Best day of our lives! Beautiful wedding!
Venue Service

By Charlotte & Russ, on 11 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2019

We had the most beautiful wedding day at Rowhill grange hotel at the beginning of April and I would recommend it to anyone. We fell in love with the beautiful grounds straight away. It was worth the wait as we planned it for a year after we booked Rowhill. There were not too many dates left at the time for early 2019. It was the perfect/dream venue. The staff at Rowhill are outstanding and are there to help with your every need from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. We didn't have to worry about anything on the day as the staff were so organised and knew what to do to make everything work perfectly. All our guests commented that it was fairy tale standards of beauty, and even the children had the best time occupying themselves by exploring the vast, grounds. The food was absolutely amazing and wouldn't have been out of place at a top restaurant. Once the evening arrived we were again in awe at the professionalism of the set up and how everything was just ready waiting for is. We couldn't fault a thing. The recommended DJ was excellent and kept people on the dance floor right to the last second. Most people will only get married once in their lives so do it properly. Rowhill Grange will offer you a day of beauty and splendour you will find hard to equal elsewhere. The bride 100% felt like a princess all day which is how it should be.

Rowhill Grange is very beautiful and special.

We knew that our wedding venue had to be somewhere that was beautiful in the winter as our wedding date, 22 January, was non-negotiable. We looked at 120 venues online and narrowed it down to 13. We visited them all, and they were lovely, but they were just missing that little something that was us, until the day we went to Rowhill Grange. As we pulled into the grounds, we had a good feeling, and by the end of the visit we knew it was perfect. In the 20 months between booking and our wedding day, we got to know our wedding coordinator, Georgia, and our wedding team, Chris and Harry, incredibly well. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Their enthusiasm, eagerness and good humour was reassuring, and they did everything they could to accommodate us, allowing us access to the venue on numerous occasions to meet with suppliers or view the reception rooms. When we had ideas that were unusual, Chris and Harry found a way to make things happen. When we had a supplier issue, Georgia supported us and managed the situation without our involvement. When we did the menu tasting, Chris and Georgia bent over backwards to ensure that we were happy. As the groom is a chef in a 5-star hotel in central London (and 5 of our guests were chefs), it was crucial that the ingredients were a high standard and the dishes well executed. Chris took all of our suggestions and requests to the Rowhill Grange Chef and arranged additional food tastings to ensure we were happy. On our wedding day, Chris and Harry didn’t stop, they managed to be in several places at once and worked with our wedding planners to ensure that our day was special and unique to us.

We just got married at Rowhill a couple of weeks ago and I can highly recommend to anyone looking for a smooth running stress free experience. Not only is it such a beautiful venue, the staff are just amazing I cannot thank them enough they went over and above to ensure we had everything we wanted. They are so organised and we didn't have to worry about one thing on the day it all ran to time and exactly as we had imagined it to be. It was all included in the package we chose and the food was outstanding! The honeymoon suite is just beautiful as well. I am so happy we chose this venue for the most important day of our lives!

Best Day Ever!
Venue Service

By Daniel and Ada Crispino, on 02 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

We had our wedding at Rowhill Grange on Saturday 28th July. Firstly the venue itself is stunning, every single guest of ours have commented on how beautiful the venue was to have a wedding. The staff were absolutely outstanding!! They were all friendly and helpful , and we both felt that we were in good hands. They really do go above and beyond for you and felt like nothing was a problem. Both our Toastmasters (Steve and Harry) were great! For example, the groom was feeling really nervous for his speech and Harry sat with him to calm his nerves and gave him great advice which made him feel at ease and really helped! We would also like to thank Jodie. She was also amazing throughout the day. For example, when the groom arrived at the venue he had a USB stick with all the music for the wedding (guest arrival, bride walking down the aisle & first dance). When he went to go test this, they realised this didn't work! Jodie used her initiative to take the USB onto her laptop to fix the problem which she did successfully. Just before the first dance about to happen, the groom approached Jodie panicking as he didn't know where the USB stick was as it had the first dance song. Jodie again used her initiative and had already given this to the DJ. These are just a few examples of how good the staff were at Rowhill Grange. They have all been amazing on our special day and so glad that we chose Rowhill Grange to get married!

Perfect wedding day!

By Kerry and Stephen Luff, on 03 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 05 May 2018

My husband and I got married at Rowhill Grange on 5th May 2018. We had the most amazing day. From the moment we booked the wedding in 2016 we knew that our wedding would be exactly what we wanted and more. Jodie was our wedding co-ordinator, she was absolutely fantastic, nothing was too much trouble throughout the planning and also on the day. We also have to say special thanks to Chris and Harry, the Banqueting Managers who also made the day fantastic. The staff are so attentive, a lot of the guest commented on how professional the staff were and friendly too. If you are thinking of getting married at Rowhill Grange, you wil have the most amazing day and lovely memories forever!

What can I say from the first moment we stepped on to the grounds of the Rowhill we knew that this would be the perfect venue, and we were right. The whole lead up and meetings with the staff Penny & Jodie made our day the most perfect ever, the staff, the food, the hotel was all amazing, if we could do it all gain we would. Thank you to all the staff at the Rowhill for a memorable day. Thank you again, Mr & Mrs Pepper

The perfect fairytale wedding!

By Vanessa and James Eloie, on 23 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2018

Our wedding at Rowhill Grange was everything we could of hoped for and more! Our wedding co-ordinator Penny made planning our wedding so easy and stress free, any queries or worries we had and she was there to help us out! The staff on the day were lovely - they were professional, helpful and efficient and made the whole day run smoothly. I honestly did not have to worry about a single thing on the day and would highly recommend this venue for a wedding, the surroundings are beautiful and the staff are truly faultless.

Perfect Weddint Venue
Venue Service

By Amy & Andy Van Campenhout, on 12 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2017

We're do we start?! All we can say is that our day was just perfect!!! My bridesmaids and I stayed the night before as part of my hen do. Afternoon tea was lovely as always! The massages and spa were much needed with all the stress leading up to the big day. Daisy, my massage therapist was brilliant! Dinner was delicious. My Maid of Honour even said it was the best meal she'd ever eaten. We had a lovely waitress serving our drinks. Vasilia was very attentive and super friendly! Our rooms were beautiful, comfiest beds ever by the way! But what really made the hen do special was the staff helping my Maid of Honour with all the little surprises and finishing touches she'd had planned. This made my day. Consequently, I was so relaxed before my wedding! Even my make up lady was impressed with how chill we all were the morning of the wedding. As for the wedding co-ordinators, Danielle (who has now sadly left) and Jodie could not have done anymore for us. They both went above and beyond our expectations. I had so many annoying little questions leading up to the wedding but they were alway super helpful and answered really quickly. This really helped quell any anxieties we had. Everything about the day itself was perfect. The ceremony was beautiful, wedding breakfast and buffet was delicious. Matt at Discologic did an amazing job. Especially considering how fussy my husband and I are with music! Jodie and Danny really made our day special and absolutely seamless. They are a credit to Rowhill. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect day!

Beautiful venue inside and out
Venue Service

By Che-Marie Brown, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Jun 2017

We had our wedding at Rowhill Grange June 2017 and we could not have had a better team of people coordinate our day! There are few venues which are authorised to facilitate outdoor wedding ceremonies and Rowhill really do offer a picturesque intimate environment for just that. The venue speaks for itself and we were so lucky to have the weather on our side that day enabling us to have the ceremony, reception drinks and even the cake cutting outside in the beautiful grounds. It really is a unique venue where I received countless compliments from our guests all day of how stunning the venue was and how it was a type of venue like no other. The wedding day itself ran smooth and flowed without any worries from myself or the groom. Penny was our wedding coordinator from the start and was absolutely brilliant helping advise on our package we went for, helped give guidance on the upgrades we wanted and catered to our idea that we wanted the cake cutting to be outside which is something they hadn't necessarily done before which was no problem at all. Also extended thanks to Chris the manager who helped on the day of the wedding, who was completely on top form throughout the day checking in on both myself and the groom, helping with the necessary preparations the morning of the wedding with the decorations, absolutely brilliant. The entire team are Rowhill Grange are so personable, approachable and thorough with everything they do, I couldn't fault anything.

The Most Perfect Day!

By Maria and Adam Lawrence, on 14 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 28 May 2017

We had visited Rowhill Grange previously for a spa weekend and thought it was such a lovely venue - beautiful surroundings, friendly and welcoming staff and amazing food. When we started planning our 'Big Day' we knew that Rowhill Grange would be just perfect for the intimate wedding that we wanted. From the moment we got in touch with Penny she made everything so easy and stress-free! She was always there to reply to emails - answering questions and queries and giving advice. On the day, it couldn't have been any more perfect than it was. The attention the detail, such as bringing out a little white umbrella after the delicious canapes and Pimm's on the lawn (the rain was timed perfectly!), could not be faulted. The attentiveness, friendliness and eagerness to please allowed to day to run so smoothly, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We genuinely couldn't recommend Rowhill Grange enough. We honestly wouldn't have changed anything about our very special day. Penny, Chris, Georgia and the other members of staff who helped at our wedding are a huge credit Rowhill Grange. Thank you for making Sunday 28th May the wedding of our dreams! Maria and Adam
