    Maria & Tim's Tiny Covid Wedding

    We had a wonderful day, despite the Covid restrictions and limitations. The staff worked above and beyond our expectations, nothing was too much to ask for.
    Together we spent a lot of time planning, revising plans and re-planning, right up to the last minute. We constantly reviewed the government regulations to ensure everything was compliant and that both staff and our guests were safe. It was difficult all round navigating through the ever-changing circumstances, but together we worked to achieve a fantastic Wedding Day to remember. My thanks to all the Shendish staff.

    COVID Fairytale Indian Wedding

    Due to the lockdown we had to reschedule both our Civil and Hindu Wedding ceremonies and Bryher and the team at Shendish Manor made this process stress free and were very flexible. We managed to have our Civil Ceremony in August which was truly magical and will be having the Hindu wedding in a few weeks time and I have no worries as I know Bryher and the team will make sure that I have the best day possible.

    Thank you for providing a wonderful experience

    We just wanted to say what a great day we had. All the facilities were beautiful including the grounds, the Aspley suite and the Orangery, and your Operations team worked most professionally and efficiently to ensure that all the areas needed for the ceremony and the reception were ready on time and looked magnificent.

    We would also like to thank you for helping us to plan the layout of the Aspley suite and for being accommodating in terms of where to leave things before the ceremony and after the reception. We felt the day went very smoothly and both we and our guests enjoyed the whole occasion immensely.

    Thank you again for providing such a wonderful experience.

    Wedding

    A beautiful setting, rooms excellent & staff nice, but the hotel is very unorganised, the food was nothing like the tasting, more like a cavery on the day, I could not even eat my potatoes and I was the bride, the front of house manager left a week before & no one bothered to tell me till i rang 2 days before my wedding, I asked for no shots/doubles to be served on the free bar, which they were, so therefore we ran out, it was very very unorganised, be very wary brides & grooms

    Wonderful Accommodation

    We went to our friends wedding at the weekend and the hotel was outstanding, bedrooms all clean, fresh and new. I am now holding a date for my wedding in 2009. I can't wait!

    Super Venue for all occasions

    Shendish Manor has splendid facilities to cater for all occasions. They can cater for up to 350 for your wedding. I found this venue by looking on hitched and have had a showround already for my sons wedding. I am holding a date already waiting for my son to see it, this would suit all couples down to the ground.

    A splendid Affair

    My daughter had her wedding a few weeks ago at Shendish Manor. She picked the venue before she saw the final finishing touches of the new hotel, so ofcourse, mothers panic. All was great, better than I imagined. The service, food and organisation of the hotel was outstanding

    October Wedding

    Our large wedding for 250 people went without a hitch. I was thinking what can go wrong, but nothing did. The day was perfect and the attention to detail from the organisers, chef and staff were fantastic. Definately worth having your wedding at Shendish Manor. My husband to be also played golf before getting married to me, and he really enjoyed his bonding with his male friends and family

    Small Occassion

    We had a small wedding for only 20 people but for Shendish Manor nothing was too much trouble. We had the best time and it was a wonderful affair. The Manor and bedrooms are fantastic. My new wife was over the moon.

    Great Showround, worth visiting

    Our showround to the hotel was professional and we were looked after very well. We were not rushed. The grounds are amazing and so is the rest of the new hotel. A real eye opener. We went onto Hitched to obtain a brochure with a few venues, but Shendish Manor was the quickest in their response. We have since been back and paid our deposit. 5* to the Sales and the friendly team.

    What a fab new hotel

    We requested a brochure, which we got the next day! Very efficient. We then asked for a showround of the hotel and the Sales Team were very accommodating. We booked that same night, the new Apsley Suite which caters for 300 is great for those large family weddings. The staff were helpful and helped by changing some of the packages to our needs. Private Garden for our guests and air conditioned bedrooms. We can not wait until May 2008!

    Excellent facilities for Outside Catering

    The large banqueting suite can hold up to 300 for an outside catering with its own kitchens and private gardens. Excellent grounds, bedrooms actually have air conditioned rooms and the hotel is great as it is new. Since seeing the hotel 2 weeks ago, I have now booked my son barmitzvah in 2009.

    Best Day of our Lives

    We heard of Shendish Manor, but the comments we heard was that it was looking tired. BUT when we went to see the hotel 15 months ago, WOW a transformation! We had our wedding 2 months ago, when the summer was still a summer, the gardens were beautiful, the Manor of the hotel, words can not describe it! The food fantastic, staff helpful and the day a day to remember for always.
