The most amazing day
We had the MOST AMAZING DAY and I just wanted to share the below with you.Sent on 30/09/2019
Right from the first phone call I made to you, through to after the wedding, you were always super friendly, super efficient and passionate about everything detail we discussed.
Nothing was ever too much trouble.
Every supplier I spoke to, spoke so highly about Corrina and I couldn't agree more with them. She is an asset to The Great House and we couldn't have wished for anyone else to help plan our wedding day. You made the whole experience enjoyable and as stress-free as it can be.
The day itself was truly magical, which we also thank Kate and the team for too.
A special thanks to Kate for ensuring our special day run like clockwork and for bringing a fun and a relaxed feel to the lead up and on the day. Exactly what we needed.
THANK YOU once again from both of us.

The best Little & Local COVID wedding!
We decided to have a Little & Local wedding last September, instead of the BIG Cornwall plan, and chose The Great House as our venue. Such a lovely location and a laid back vibe which was exactly what we wanted, and we’re so happy we made that decision as the team were amazing!! So flexible with our many wants and changes, able to cope with all our different dietary needs and on the day, the team were BRILLIANT! Everything went according to plan, from the table settings to the delicious wedding breakfast and we can’t thank them enough! The absolute perfect day and eight months on, we’re still on a high! Big shout especially to Corrina, Charlotte, Amy Claire and Clare who helped our vision come to life!Sent on 03/05/2021

Magical day despite covid derailment
We couldn’t be more thankful and appreciative of the service and event we held at The Great House, Sonning, on 12 July 2020. We were due to tie the knot in May 2020 but the pandemic prevented us doing so. We had about 2 weeks to get up and running for the 12 July but with the support of the events team and our families it was an event to remember. Superb staff, food and setting. Would highly recommend. We had just 10 for both the ceremony and meal. There is a beautiful small space for the ceremony. Thank you to the Great House and Team!Sent on 14/07/2020
