    Fell in love with the venue instantly

    We had never heard of Sopwell House before but we wanted to do fireworks and this venue came up in the Google search.

    We went for a viewing and fell in love with the venue instantly. The staff were so professional which assured us that this was the right venue for us.

    Shanine, Mandy, Tony, Danilo, Mattia & Luca were especially helpful even when I had last minute requests. They went over and beyond what they needed to do which resulted in our wedding being absolutely perfect.

    I would recommend Sopwell House as a wedding venue to anyone.

    Perfect Day

    Thank you so much for all of your help and advice during the many months of preparation for the Wedding, and also on the day.

    We all had a great time!

    We suspect that Sopwell House may well get some enquiries from some of our guests for weddings that are currently being planned.

    With best regards,

    Mr and Mrs Harris

    Thank you!

    I just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful wedding you organised, everything went perfectly and everyone was so pleased and happy (they’re still talking about it!).
    It was really the perfect day, perfect weather, food (one of the guests who had the vegetarian dish said that she would lick the plate if she could), buffet was lovely and almost all the cheese was gone by the end of the evening.

    Thanks again so much!!
