    A truly special location!

    Stanwick Lakes has been a special location for our family for many years, summers spent with our children enjoying the beautiful lakes, play areas, bike rides, winter walks, and everything else this amazing location has to offer to all its visitors. When we started looking for locations for our wedding, Stanwick Lakes was one of my first thoughts because I love the location so much and knew how beautiful the lakes look on a warm summers evening and could be the perfect backdrop for our wedding photographs.
    We booked a meeting with the onsite Event Manager Mel to discuss our hopes and plans for our special day and within 10 minutes of meeting Mel, we were 100% sure that on Stanwick Lakes was our wedding venue. Mels enthusiasm, knowledge, and excitement were contagious and without her I don’t know how we would have planned such an unforgettable day. Mel didn’t panic when we decided quite last minute to move the wedding date forward by 6 weeks and made sure that everything ran smoothly throughout the pre planning and day itself … even buying 40 umbrellas the morning of the wedding, just in case the weather didn’t hold out for the outside service.
    I would wholeheartedly recommend Stanwick Lakes and the onsite team for any private events or weddings. Our day was seamless and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect location and team to make it so memorable.
    Thank you Mel and all the team, I just wish we could do it all again, maybe our 10 year anniversary, please hold the date 20th July 2030!!
