A very special and magical venue- a BIG thank you!

Holford will always be a very special and magical place to us! It is so beautiful and offered everything we could have wished for!
As soon as we visited T.H.E we immediately fell in love! We arranged a viewing with Frances (the owner) who was more than happy to show us around at a time that suited us and gave us all the information we needed.
After driving through the gates, seeing the beautiful house and Barn, we knew straight away that this was the place we wanted to get married. It felt so relaxed and peaceful, and the Barn is perfect for the intimate wedding day we wanted.
We fell in love with what they have created in the Barn, from the two ceiling gold ring lights, the sound system, the stunning fire place - all giving it a unique magical feel!
Hannah, Frances and the rest of the team at T.H.E are amazing. Hannah is an amazing wedding planner and I loved working with her from the beginning. She is super organised, creative and always there to help out. She took time to go through our ideas and get to know us and how we wanted our wedding day. She was always there if we had any questions or needed any help, from finding table runners to suggestions about flowers and canapés! Her knowledge of the wedding industry was a god send, it made the planning process a lot less stressful than if we were doing it alone!
The Holford Estate is the most beautiful setting and is truly something special. Hannah, Frances and the rest of the team are truly fantastic, their attention to detail, professionalism and thoughtfulness is second to none.
We would highly recommend T.H.E to other couples and wouldn’t change a single thing!

Most amazing wedding venue

We got married here on 7th September 2019 and everything from start to finish was incredible. Right from booking this venue we felt completely at ease, Hannah and Frances at the venue could not have been more helpful, accommodating and really made our day special. They are a team you can have complete faith in! The pictures of the venue speak for themselves, it's absolutely stunning, the grounds, the barn and everything is finished to the highest standard. There are so many places to get amazing wedding photos and you have the option to get married in the barn or outside. We visited 12 different venues and THE was the last one we saw, it's so unique and is the most personal venue we saw - they're not a wedding factory venue with weddings 7 days a week where you get no time at the venue, they also help you really make the wedding your own with personal touches here and there. I couldn't recommend them enough, my only wish was to be able to do it all over again!

Magical day

Thank you to T.H.E team for making our day so special! Frances, Hannah, Jackie and the team were amazing in the prep and on the day! I would highly recommend the venue which offers a high end yet homely feel! We married in the gardens and then ate and danced in the barn. We stayed over in the mill house before and on the wedding night which was perfect for hosting family and friends. From the moment we first viewed the Holford estate we knew it was just what we visioned our venue to be with the versatility to make it personal to us! Thank you

We got married here in November 2018. My fiancé and I always wanted either a beach wedding or a winter wedding here In the UK, we don’t trust the British weather!!! We wanted something that every couple wants, something that suits our style, for us classic with a modern edge. Enter T.H.E. We loved it from the second we drove in, everything about it! Then needless to say our day replicated everything we had hoped for. We had a black tie theme which we felt went perfect with the style of the venue. The team were friendly, professional and we can’t recommend this venue enough. Wish I could do it all over again!!!

Thank you so much for hosting our Wedding last August, we really had the most amazing day and a lot of thi was knowing we had booked the right venue for us. The venue was beautiful inside and out. T.H.E. Team/staff were so kind & helpful and we felt in safe hands. As time has gone on we are still getting so many comments from our guests about how much they loved Holford.

Couldn't recommend enough!

We had our wedding at The Holford Estate in early August and we couldn't have been any happier! Since we'd booked the venue over a year and a half ago, Frances, Jacky and Hannah have been nothing short of amazing throughout. Hannah was extremely helpful and kept us both relaxed when she helped plan the little details and provided great suggestions for the bigger parts such as The Bourbon Street Band, who were brilliant.

The team were there to help us get set up the day before the wedding, and had pretty much everything packed and ready for us to take the day after. Having the extra time either side of the wedding day made a huge difference, helping keep the stress down and letting us have a bit of a lie in, and it was one of the reasons we first booked the venue as most others want everything gone before most people are even awake!

The day itself was perfect, the venue was absolutely stunning and the staff were all extremely helpful, friendly and professional. Everything flowed perfectly to plan, in no small part thanks to Hannah, who we don't think stopped all day! We had the best day of our lives and we've still not stopped receiving compliments about the day and the venue.

We couldn't recommend The Holford Estate enough, and we don't think our guests could either!
