Nothing short of Amazing

To everyone at Tewin Bury Farm,

We just wanted to email to say a huge thank you. Our wedding yesterday was simply perfect and it was because of all the amazing staff at Tewin Bury. From Sophie who helped us plan the day, to Charlotte who helped keep everything running smoothly on the day, to the hotel staff for helping get lots of guests checked in, to the dinner service and bar staff who were so quick and organised to everyone other member of staff we saw around the grounds. Each and every member of the team at Tewin Bury were nothing short of amazing. We were constantly met with kindness and everyone was so attentive, helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much for the staff and everyone went above and beyond to look after us from taking care of my veil, to getting us checked in (because we forgot) to ensuring we even had some wedding cake kept for us because we didn’t get to eat it during the night. All of that really does show what an amazing wedding venue Tewin Bury really is.
We have had so many compliments about the high quality of food, service and the amazing grounds. So thank you, thank you, thank you. Yesterday was truly the most magical and best day of our lives and you have all played a huge part in that. We truly appreciate everything you have all done.

Take care,
James and Aisling

Exactly what we wanted

We were able to have the reception we wanted, tweaking packages and plans to make it work for us. The team were very helpful and positive, nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend.

Wedding - Would not recommend

We had our wedding here this year (2023), and even though the venue is beautiful, unfortunately, the staff really let us down. The handover from our wedding coordinator to the manager present on the day was terrible and all the wrong information was given over.
The seating plan was completely wrong, and the layout of the room was not what we had asked for and detailed months prior.
We had a bar tab, but the bar staff charged our guests for their drinks, again even though this was clearly stated in writing and over the phone in the planning stages that there was to be a bar tab.
The wedding breakfast was good, but unfortunately the evening food was not edible. Futher more, most of our guests stayed at the hotel to which breakfast is included. When at breakfast the following morning they ran out of most of the food items.
When these issues were presented to the Events Manager, Lauren, we did not get a sorry or any kind of ownership for the mistakes that had taken place and Lauren actually didn't respond to our emails of calls to ensure the issues were resolved. Eventually, we had to get the General Manager involved, who did respond and resolve the issues, but unfortunately, overall not a great experience for the money that we paid to have our wedding there and nothing could fix the mistakes made on the day.

Wonderful day at a wonderful venue

A big thank you to Sam for helping us plan our Tewinbury wedding, and to Kaika and team for ensuring it all went seamlessly on the day although I'm sure behind the scenes there was a lot more going on than we realised! They made it easy. The little touches will stick in our minds - like finding wedding cake in our room, keeping dinner warm for a guest on baby duty etc - as well as the warmth and friendliness of the staff. Everyone complimented the food - and people loved the venue so much one friend has already booked to come back, and more than one group of friends have asked if we can come back for a reunion next year.

A huge thank you to the Tewinbury team for all your hard work planning the wedding and the execution on the day.

Underwhelming

Unprofessional and poor service provided. Rude staff, late on timings, let down.

Everything was perfect!

Our day was everything we could ever have imagined it to be and more. We wanted a calm and intimate wedding and that’s exactly what we got. From start to finish we felt welcomed and at home, and all of the staff made everything feel effortless.

We are so pleased we chose to marry at Tewinbury. The venue was beautiful, we had so many compliments on the food, and the drinks were superb too. It genuinely was the happiest day of our lives. Wish we could do it all again.

Wouldn't change a thing

Hi Sophie,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help planning our wedding, it turned out amazing and we wouldn't have changed a thing!

I wondered if you could please pass this note on to Janay, who looked after us on the day. She was absolutely amazing, she covered everything so well and she really put me and my bridal party at ease before the ceremony, she helped so much throughout the day and put in so much effort to make sure we had everything we needed. She really made it special for us and made sure we had no stress at all. It must have been hard work in the heat running around after us all day, so we are really grateful. Thank you to Matt too who was also so helpful!! I caught him the week before the wedding and he really helped then too. Every member of staff was so attentive and every guest noticed it and complimented the service.

Thanks so much,
Danielle & Ben

Dream Wedding

We had our wedding at Tewin Burry Farm at the beginning of December and it's only now we are getting a chance to give some feedback. Firstly we wanted to say a huge thank you to all of the staff at Tewin Burry for making our stay and wedding so amazing. Here are a few bits of feedback:

Hotel
A group of us stayed the night before and evening of the wedding. The rooms where stunning, clean and roomy and the bridal suit was especially lovely. The hotel staff were very helpful in fufilling any maintenance and room service requests.

Cowshed
We dinned at the Cowshed the evening before our wedding. It was a large party of 15 and the staff kindly did a lovely table set up and decorated the table with Christmas crackers. We where also really impressed with the complimentary entrees which where really unique and delicious, especially the cheese profiteroles. The roast dinner was superb and everyone was really happy. Staff was super friendly and professional. Overall we had a really fun evening so thank you!

Wedding day
Charlotte and the rest of the team were really helpful, friendly and organised. The day ran so smoothly that it was a stress free day for James and I. The venue looked more beautiful than we could ever have imagined, there were lots of lovely finishing touches we didn't expect. The food was OUTSTANDING and all options (vegan, gluten free etc.) were delicious. Literally every guest raved about the food. The bar staff were fun and friendly and coped well with how busy it was. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us our dream wedding.

Thanks,
James and Grace x

Beautiful Amazing day!

Good afternoon,

We had a wedding yesterday for Marilyn and Reg and whilst your whole team were impeccable, there is one member of your team we really wish to say a heart felt thank you to: Fionn.

Fionn was there during the wedding and there the next day at breakfast too. They were approachable and just did a bit extra to make the day really special. Fionn made sure the bride and groom got their canapés and was happy to answer any questions. Fionn was quick to help at breakfast with moving our tea and coffee with a hungry baby and without being asked to and without question.

We just wanted to make sure Fionn’s professionalism and just all round brilliant service is highlighted and we hope that this is passed on too.

Thank you all again for such a beautiful day.

Sarah Goodman (bridesmaid)

Superb venue!

Beautiful venue in a lovely setting. Ideal for the amount of guests we had, the weather held our for us and allowed us to use the natural surroundings to say our vows outside.

Fantastic venue and staff

Tewin Bury Farm is located very near Welwyn Garden City, and the only reason we decided to check it out was because it was so near our home, even though we pretty much already decided on another venue. We immediately fell in love with the place, and the Tythe barn in particular. The reasonable prices of the Snowdrop winter package convinced us it was the right choice for us and we booked our wedding day for March 2019.

Everything went perfectly smoothly from the day we first viewed the barn until the very last minutes of our wedding. The staff is incredibly helpful. All questions, fears and requests were swiftly dealt with all throughout the months of planning. We could see the venue as often as needed, and we even took the opportunity to wander in the beautiful countryside surrounding the farm.

The day itself went fantastically well, the barn looked incredible for our ceremony and then our dinner, and the weather even permitted an outdoor reception in the barn's private garden. The food was truly delicious, the canapes, the meal and the evening buffet were great. They made sure every detail was perfect, and I'm still not over the lovely, rustic and delicious looking spread the team set up for the evening buffet. The hotel was perfect for our guests and us, and everyone was impressed with the beautiful and cosy rooms.

Massive thanks to the entire team, in particular Steph for her help planning our big day, and Haylee and Andre for their efficiency and support on the day.
If you decide to go for Tewin Bury Farm, know you will be well taken care of from day 1, and you will not regret your decision!

thank you

We just want to say big thank you to Katie, Charlotte and the rest of the wedding team for helping us host a lovely wedding bbq to our guests. We had an amazing time and the planning was made so easy thanks to you.

I emailed the venue for a quote after another venue failed to deliver what I asked for and received a response within an hour if not even earlier than that. From the very first email I was provided with details of the venue still available (Millstream Suite and Gardens) menu, options available and a quote. I was very impressed and was looking to book it straight away so arranged to visit the venue that same weekend to make sure its what we wanted. Of course, we were not dissapointed - the venue and gardens were absolutely stunning.

Until the actual date of the wedding bbq we were updated at all times via email and we had a lovely consultation with all details being finalised then.

On the day, I didnt like how it was set up at first and I was truly impressed by Charlotte because she really took control and made the changes I asked for. Thank you for that.

The bbq served was aboslutely amazing too - it was served outside as the sun was shining that day. I really enjoyed it and all the guests complimented the food.

Overall, I am grateful to have chosen this venue and for all the help making our party truly special and fun.
