The perfect wedding venue!

We held our wedding at The Elvetham in August, and we want to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making it so special. We truly had the perfect day and we could not have asked for a better, more magical venue - we had so many compliments from guests about how stunning The Elvetham is, and how impressed they were by the service. An especially big thanks to Justine, our wedding coordinator, for all her support in the run-up to the big day, and to Barry, Max and Euan for their endless hard work on the Friday and Saturday. The team were absolutely incredible in helping us get the marquee set up, and went above and beyond in accommodating the various requests throughout the weekend. The food was delicious, the drinks kept flowing, and the staff were all super friendly. David the toastmaster was also a lovely man, and we were grateful to him and Barry for keeping everything running smoothly, despite us slipping behind with our timings! We cannot thank The Elvetham enough - it was the best day, and we look forward to coming back to The Elvetham as a married couple. It will certainly always hold a special place in our hearts.

The perfect day

We had our wedding here on 30th December, from the first walk round we were sold on the Elvetham, the wedding planner who showed us around Holly couldn鈥檛 of been nicer, and the fact she would be the one running our day made the decision to book easy. The preparation was easy and communication was great with the venue. On the day it couldn't of been more perfect for us, the food was amazing, the drinks great, all the staff were helpful and had smiles all day, nothing was too much to ask. Holly ran the day totally perfect, she was there when we needed and in the background when not. She put us at ease when the nerves set in, and smiled with us at those special moments in the day. Honestly would recommend to have your wedding here.

Amazing, organised dream team!

What can I say! I literally had the most magical day and it was all thanks to the Elvetham hotel and staff! Not only the most beautiful picturesque setting but stunning details around the hotel. Big shout out to the Events team Raegan and Holly, they listened to all my ideas and what I wanted to create and made it better than I imagined! From every request to any question, they were there and got things done! my trust in them was built early on and I was put at ease knowing they would ensure my day would be exactly how I wanted it to be! The girls literally went above and beyond to create not only the most beautiful wedding day! but the night before with my bridesmaids where we enjoyed a pamper session and sleepover! honestly I would recommend this hotel so much! I only wish I could relive the day again!!! Thank you so much Elvetham Hotel!

Perfect, perfect, perfect!

We held our wedding reception at The Elvetham in April 2023 and it was just perfect! The venue is stunning and so many of our guests mentioned to us what a lovely place it was. There are several different rooms and areas so it was great for accommodating all ages. Holly & her team were super friendly and helpful in the planning process and were always there to answer any questions we had. We would definitely recommend The Elvetham to anyone planning their wedding!

The Elvetham was our perfect venue

We loved our wedding at the beautiful The Elvetham and everything went just how we wanted it to! This is due to our wedding coordinator Holly who provided a lot of work behind the scenes -working with our vendors and were always on hand to respond quickly to any of our questions. A huge thanks to the The Elvetham team. The venue itself is beautiful and we were lucky that in early April we had some lovely spring sunshine and so we were able to utilise the whole space and gardens for our 120 guests. The formal gardens are the perfect place to have the reception drinks and canap茅s.

We would highly recommend this venue.

Perfect from start to finish

My Husband and I can not thank The Elvetham enough for helping us plan and run our perfect day. It was truly amazing, and I just want to do it again. Our wedding planner was great with her communication, she was great on the day itself too, looking after every need all through the day and made sure we were happy every step of the way. It was a magical day in the most beautiful of surroundings. I would recommend The Elvetham again and again for anyone鈥檚 wedding day.

Can鈥檛 wait to return in a year for our first anniversary.

Faultless, bespoke and heart felt.

So much to say about our experience with The Elvetham for our wedding. The personable, attentive, genuine experience we had made every part of our journey from start to finish amazing. Holly and the team went above and beyond to make our day feel like the only day that mattered to them. Every detail no matter how big or small was taken care of and no request was too much. My husband and I had the most amazing day - one that will stay with us forever and we have everyone at The Elvetham to thank for that.

Thank you so very very much for being there from before during and after. You were outstanding!!

The Best Wedding Venue!

From the very first time we stepped into the hotel (unannounced) to ask about hosting our wedding there, the service has been nothing short of extraordinary. They, like many, have had to deal with all the issues the pandemic has brought but they've done so fantastically well. The hotel rooms are large and pleasant and if you upgrade to one of their suites, they are just stunning. We will be going back to The Elvetham many times to celebrate our anniversaries, but I would also not hesitate to use them for a special birthday occasion either given the level of service they provide.

Hosting our Wedding 18th November '22

When we first visited The Elvetham, we knew this was the wedding venue we'd wished for. It is such a beautiful venue and gave us that traditional feel with a hint of magic. After a few initial hiccups, we received faultless care from Justine, Barry & Richard for the remainder of our wedding planning all the way up to our wedding day. Nothing was ever too much for them and they were incredibly supportive and caring with all aspects of our special day. The day ran to perfection with every attention to detail spot on. Our guests couldn't stop exclaiming how incredible The Elvetham was, the character of the venue, the Christmas decorations and the attentiveness of the staff. It felt an honour to be an Elvetham couple, and if you're looking for a venue that has a touch of magic, The Elvetham will provide that for you.

A day out of a story!

Holly, the coordinator, is fabulous. She's highly efficient, patient, kind and quick with responses.
The venue is absolutely stunning all year round. It's perfect for a warm and romantic wedding with the beautiful fire places, well lit and spacious dining area and outstanding grounds. The staircase is my favourite bit with lots of ideas for decor. The food is tasty, the staff are helpful, the rooms are cosy and it's just a fairy tale princess experience. Oh and the room for getting ready is lovely! Highly recommend. We can鈥檛 wait to visit again for other special occasions.

Utterly Fantastic

We cannot recommend the Elvetham enough. We had a truly magical day, and the Elvetham played a big part in that. The wedding team were absolutely brilliant, responsive, enthusiastic and friendly - they seemed genuinely happy to accommodate all they could and it felt like they had all the time in the world for us.

The venue is utterly stunning. The accommodation is all of a high quality, the rooms for the ceremony and function are beautiful and all the staff are friendly. The food was flawless, and there was a great selection to choose from.

We received so many compliments on our choice of wedding venue, and we would wholeheartedly recommend The Elvetham without a moment's hesitation.

The best wedding we could have asked for!

Wow, where to begin... Holly and the team at The Elvetham went above and beyond to make our wedding day this October so special. The service from the front of house team during the wedding breakfast ran so smoothly, the wedding breakfast itself was incredible (especially the beef!), the effort Holly and her team went to help set up the room with all our decor - it looked beautiful.

The whole day and the venue exceeded our expectations. We are SO pleased we chose to celebrate our wedding at The Elvetham - a day we will remember forever!

No better place to get married!

We wanted to say an enormous thank you to The Elvetham and our wedding specialist, Holly, for all their help with our big day! We had such an amazing day and can't stop thinking about how perfect everything was. We can't fault anything, the service and attention to detail was amazing. Holly was incredible - from the first visit to The Elvetham last year we knew we would be in the best hands. She was nothing but helpful and supportive and we are so glad she was our wedding coordinator!! Looking back, we are so glad to have had Holly and the toastmaster David on the day making sure everything went smoothly which really meant we could soak up every minute of the day. All of our guests had the best day and have been so complimentary of how it went!

The biggest thank you to Holly and the team for all their hard work and effort. We can't wait to visit The Elvetham as a married couple, it will always hold such a special place in our hearts.
