09.09.23 The Best Day Of Our Lives

Massive shout out to all the staff at Bush Hotel Farnham who made our day so incredibly special for us. We got married on the hottest day of the year 09/09/23 but that did not stop us. From the very beginning from us finding this absolutely charming venue our in house wedding coordinator Hannah and the hotel manager Fransisco and all of the staff made us feel extremely welcome, loved and just completely at home every time we visited the venue and trust me when I say we came in A LOT! We couldn't stay away due to the incredible atmosphere, the beautiful decor of the venue and the incredible food. From the get go we were absolutely and totally in love with the place and the staff that ran the show and absolutely every little detail of our wedding was maticulously and perfectly planned. Communication from Hannah and the team throughout was absolutely top notch and it made planning my wedding so incredibly easy and it really was the most enjoyable experience. We had an intimate wedding of around 70 guests all close friends and immediate family members. We all checked in with family, guests and bridal and grooms parties the day before the wedding and everyone loved the staff who worked so hard and the relaxing atmosphere of this beautiful historic hotel and the food. Everyone had gorgeous rooms to stay in and my bridal suite was stunning and had absolutely everything we needed to be able to relax and get ready in.

The wedding day kicked off in perfect style and the beautiful Hannah was by my side the entire time making sure everything ran smoothly and made sure everything was absolutely perfect. Our entire day was just absolutely incredible and like something out of a fairy tale and all of our guests keep telling us it was the best wedding they have ever attended and that absolutely everything was just stunning and we all had so much fun.

We wish we could go back in time and do it all over again as honestly it was pure magic and without a doubt the happiest day of our lives.

This is a massive testimony to how dedicated and absolutely incredible all of the staff are at the hotel. They simply couldn't have done enough for us.

We will be back for special occasions and book other events at this venue moving forward as it become what feels like a second home for us now and we couldn't imagine not visiting often as this really had become our happy place.

Thank you so much to all of the wonderful staff who worked so hard to make our wedding day so incredibly special we love you all and we can't wait to visit again. We are off on honeymoon now but we will be in for a chat and a meal when we get home.

Lots of love to you all from the new Mr & Mrs Crone xxxx

A dream venue

Last week we had the absolute pleasure of hosting our wedding at the Bush hotel. From the moment we walked into the venue when researching locations, to the day itself, the Bush hotel and team was a dream. The hotel has a beautiful charm for a high street location. The food was exceptional, the rooms and layout was perfect and the day was all we could hope for and more. Thank you to Hannah from the events team and to the whole Food & Beverage team for ensuring they day ran smoothly. We've had nothing but rave reviews from friends and family and wouldn't hesitate in recommending the Bush as a venue - we can't wait to come back! Liam & Jasmine

A superb wedding celebration venue

We held a joint wedding celebration and golden wedding anniversary event at the hotel for over seventy guests in the newly refurbished Redgrave Suite. The suite is beautiful and of the highest standard, has a lovely entrance hallway with relaxing settees, plus its own self-contained stylish bar; a perfect venue for such occasions. All of the event staff and management were extremely helpful from the minute we booked our event, with special thanks to Hannah and Carol for their expert help and guidance throughout the planning stages, and to Kash and his team for their wonderful support on the day. Our Celebration Dinner was absolutely delicious, Thank You. Many of our guests stayed overnight at the hotel and commented on their comfortable beds and excellent breakfasts! Everyone had a wonderful weekend, so a BIG Thank You to The Bush Hotel and all the staff.

A perfect day

Have your wedding day here! It’s amazing!

We held our entire wedding day at The Bush, starting with the ceremony in the beautiful Oak Lounge through to the Wedding Breakfast in the bright and cosy Garden Restaurant, ending in the newly finished Redgrave Suite which is just brilliant.

Hannah and her team keep you on track in terms of deadlines and timelines during the months leading up to the big day and once you arrive, she ensures that everything goes exactly to plan.

The food and catering were amazing ! All prepared on time, all the plates licked clean afterwards with the front of house team providing exceptional service. It was all delicious!

You wouldn’t believe how they get it so right at The Bush for the prices they charge plus life’s made so easy as accommodation is readily available and room rates can be arranged with Reception.

Definitely the best decision we made.

Incredible, friendly, accommodating wedding venue - look no further!

The Bush were absolutely incredible from end-to-end, we’re so pleased we chose them as our wedding venue! From the very beginning when we booked they were so helpful and accommodating - answering our endless list of questions, helping us to bring our ideas to life, and making time at short notice for us to drop in - often in a panic that we still had lots to think about! A special thanks to Hannah in particular for always making time for us, and being a voice of calm!

Our day ran like clockwork, exactly as we’d hoped. Having been so involved in the preparation it was great to be able to sit back and trust that everything was in hand - Hannah worked with our suppliers to decorate each room throughout the day, liaising with our guitarist and band, and generally took care of everything.

Everyone commented on how nice the venue is, the quality of the food, and the friendliness of all the staff.

If you’re looking for a venue run by friendly people that genuinely care about your day, look no further. Without doubt worth a visit while you are shortlisting options!

Faultless!

Where do I begin. From the moment we viewed The Bush Hotel for the first time as a potential wedding venue, nothing was too much trouble for Hannah. She made us feel welcome, she was full of helpful hints and tips and incredibly patient with us!

The Bush Hotel did everything we asked and more, and my husband and I are so happy that we chose to have our special day there. I cannot recommend The Bush Hotel highly enough, we had the most incredible wedding day, everything ran like clockwork and our guests all complimented the venue and the quality of the food (a menu which was different to the usual, and put together specifically for us).

Thank you so much to Hannah and the whole team at The Bush Hotel, we will be back in for dinner and drinks soon without a shadow of doubt!

If you are considering The Bush Hotel, go for it, you won’t regret your decision!

The most perfect wedding day

We heard about the Bush through a wedding fair they were hosting and after going to check it out we put down a deposit immediately.
The venue itself is very picturesque with modern chic meeting old charm. Despite being in the centre of Farnham the grounds feel very secluded.
The event planner, Hannah, was attentive and listened to all our wishes and helped us create the perfect day.
The day itself ran perfectly, from setting up the venue, to welcoming guests and serving delicious food and drink. Nothing was too much trouble and all the staff worked tirelessly to ensure the day was exactly as we expected.
The Bush will now hold a very special place in our hearts.

Wedding Day

The organisation was faultless.
All the staff, from management to waiters, courteous, obliging and reliable. Throughout the day, the personnel were constantly and cheerfully attentive, without appearing intrusive or overly familiar.
The catering was excellent.
An hotel that we have no hesitation in recommending for any occasion.

Perfect venue and wedding planning.

Highly recommend the Bush hotel for your wedding. Had ours last week, and ran like clockwork. Hannah the wedding planner for the Bush was amazing, sorting everything out so it ran so smoothly.
Food was excellent too, every guest was amazed at the quality of the 3 course dinner we had at the wedding breakfast.
Cant thank them enough for an amazing day and highly recommend them for a wedding.

A Lovely Wedding Day

A clearly very experienced team, who were able to manage all the details relating to the day. We had regular meetings with the coordinator Hannah which fitted our schedule. They have excellent relations with a number of local suppliers, who were all great.
Once a plan was agreed, they needed almost no supervision so we could concentrate on enjoying the day. They even provided a little canape platter just for us as they thought we could get too caught up in photos etc. All the food was delicious. They were very accomodating throughout.
Overall, we had a lovely time and can't wait to return for an anniversary visit.

The most magical venue to hold our wedding!

From our initial meeting to our wedding day, the staff at the Bush Hotel made every effort to help us plan the wedding of our dreams and ensure the day ran smoothly. The food was amazing and all our guests commented on the quality of the meal. The bridal suite was lovely with nice views of the hotel. On the day, we used the lawn at the front for our welcome drinks before moving inside for our meal. The venue was decorated really nicely by the staff and we were also able to drop-off our own decorations a few days before (which took off the pressure of having to do that on the day). Special thanks to Hannah and Francesco who went above and beyond to support our wedding.

July wedding 2022

Everything was perfect before the day, great communication with the wedding co-ordinator which put our minds at rest.

A major issue was the prepaid drinks, 35 plus aperol spritz were arranged, but sadly, they were left out in the sun, and were warm and flat, for £7 a drink we expected a hell of alot more. Guests were actually ordering there own fresh aperol from the bar!! Not great!

Food was amazing!! Venue is beautiful! But the support from the planner fizzled out on the day which was a shame, as we were under the impression she'd play an important part of the day as there was so much support before the wedding.

Bridal suite is beautiful, with amazing views of the wedding area, but you should request that the table and chairs from the outdoor bar are placed in the wedding area.... ours were not, and the guests felt very separated as it was warm and Guests needed the shade.
