It was the most perfect day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Jackson, on 02 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2019

Hi Julia I just wanted to email to say a massive thank you for the most amazing day! You all worked so hard to make it so perfect! Thank you for holding the ceremony outside at such short notice too. Simon said you had to re set it all up! Thank you! You organised us all so well and really made me and the bridal party feel at ease. I would like to say a special mention to one of the men. I didn’t catch his name but he was the short (don’t say I said that) chap with the glasses. He was amazing! Nothing was too much hassle for him and I had so many comments from guests on how polite and hard working he was. So thank you to all of you! It was the most perfect day. From Mr and Mrs Jackson

Hi Julia, Firstly apologies for taking so long to send this email to you! We can’t believe it’s been 8 weeks since our wedding day, time has flown by! Tom and I want to say a massive thank you to yourself and all of the brilliant staff at the hare and hounds for making our wedding day so fantastic! We really did have the best day. The food was incredible, every guest commented on how delicious the food was and there was a tough crowd to please!! The staff were very attentive throughout the day, it all went so smoothly and everything exceeded our expectations. Thank you again for all of your hard work. (Having been to a couple of weddings since our own it has highlighted to us even more how great our day was and what a lovely venue the Hare and Hounds is!) Best wishes, Mr & Mrs Snell was quite literally the best day of my life,

Hi Julia, Hope you had a good weekend after a few days of weddings! I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help, from the run up to the wedding to the actual day. I can not describe how amazing the day was, it was quite literally the best day of my life, everything was perfect! We received so many compliments on the food and venue. I am so happy the sun stayed out because the guests had the chance to enjoy the beautiful grounds. We loved the Gamekeepers cottage and were so happy we had the chance to enjoy it, the Magnolia room was equally as beautiful. The staff throughout our whole stay were also incredible, no request was too big and they continuously delivered a high class service. Throughout the dinner and the evening the team did a great job of organising the guests, announcing the different steps and just generally making sure everyone was happy and having fun. The room looked magical, everything was set up beautifully. Again, I can't thank you and the whole team at The H&H enough, for ensuring we had a smooth and wonderful day. I wish I could do it all over again! Many thanks, Leah and Tim

Thank you for making Sarah and Darren's wedding day so special! You were efficient, easy to approach and nothing seemed like too much trouble-we were most impressed. Please pass on our thanks to your reception staff and the waiters and waitresses who served us throughout the meal. There were many favourable comments about the venue-we were of course very fortunate with the weather. The whole day will live long in the memory-no small thanks to you and your team. The whole experience including the months of planning was made comparatively simple and pleasant because of your expertise. We are extremely grateful. Yours sincerely, Robert and Valerie Wicks
