Such an amazing venue
Venue Service

By Claire & Graham, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Apr 2018

Such an amazing venue! We got married 21st April. It was a stunning day. And even now we can't believe how easy it all was. Big thanks to Jonathon who looked after us all. The man is a legend, I can't compliment him enough. He helped the day go incredibly smoothly and just made it feel so easy. Also thanks to Kerri for answering all my questions, and for helping us organise everything.

Perfect day

By Louise & Luke, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Apr 2018

Me & my husband Luke got married here on Easter Sunday 1-4-2018 & it was perfect ???? I can’t describe the extent that the staff go to on your big day! I was lucky enough to have Kerri Barr my wedding co ordinator right from the day of booking this venue for my wedding and she is truly amazing! After countless emails of questions , enquiries etc she never made anything hard or too much trouble! Jonathan - I don’t even know where to start with you from me waking up on the morning of my wedding I could just sense it was going to be perfect. You really did an amazing job of setting up the band stand for me being able to get married outside (which by the way I can’t explain how happy I was that happened) ?? those extra little touches of you coming to show me pictures of how it looked on the morning totally put my mind at rest! My wedding breakfast room was the most beautiful room you really did take my instructions from my A4 piece of paper ?? & deliver ?? Evening reception just WOW ?? Even when I was having a slight meltdown over my photo booth you came to the rescue and again put me at ease so thank you for that! You done a fab job with my hog roast which is all my guests have gone on about!! ???? So Thank You Jonathan for making my wedding day perfect you really are a credit to the hotel ??

Thank you!

Thank you so much for all you did to make our day so special. The whole day was absolutely perfect - there was nothing we would change!! The care you took to plan, deliver and 'evaluate' our day was amazing. It was seemless & we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Than you - see you for our 1st anniversary!

Wonderful day
Venue Service

By Chelsea & Peter, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Mar 2018

So, it's a little late but here is the review of our wedding at the Inn on the Lake?? Peter and I got married here on the 28/03/18 and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful and perfect day?? Sadly the weather didn't allow us to have our ceremony outside, however it was just as special and beautiful inside the hotel. All of the staff were so unbelievably dedicated to making sure our day went perfectly. Gary stunned us both with how much he helped out with every detail of the wedding and that he went above and beyond from the start of the day until the very end - this included dressing our cakes which he did perfectly????- we honestly can't thank him enough ???? The staff also went the extra mile to watch our two gorgeous dogs Annie and Cleo as they were slightly unsettled in our room. Again, this demonstrated yet another level of service they were willing to provide to help us out on the day of the wedding ?? our little fur babies were very well looked after and made quite the impression with their girly flower collars ????

Better late than never

Thank you for the outstanding service you and your team provided for Caroline & I. March 25th 2018 was a special day for us and the planning coordination was second to none. You even managed to make the sun shine.

Best day of my life
Venue Service

By Karen & David, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Mar 2018

We got married on Saturday and I just wanted to share a few pictures from what really was the best day of my life (Cliche I know!) and to say thank you to all the staff at the Inn on the Lake for making the day so perfect - especially Jonathan - he was amazing from start to finish, kept us calm and made sure the day ran so smoothly and all our guests had the best time. The sun came out and we managed to get married by the lake which was amazing!!

Magical day
Venue Service

By Charlene & Chris, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2018

Where can we possibly start?! We got married at Inn on the Lake on 3 March, in the midst of the “Beast from the East” snow storm. The days before the wedding were thrown into turmoil. At some points we didn’t think we were going to have a wedding! When other venues were cancelling their weddings due to the extreme conditions, Inn on the Lake went above and beyond all expectations to ensure our wedding happened! Kerri and the team reassured our panicked guests, maintained contact with all of our suppliers to ensure they could reach the venue, and where there was any doubt, the team had back up suppliers on standby. The team were incredible, and the day ran perfectly-thank you thank you thank you!!! Kerri thank you for being so calm and professional throughout, and always having a back up plan! Jonathan-thank you for herding our guests and making sure the day ran so smoothly. Gary, thank you for your snow shovelling efforts to ensure we got the photos we dreamed of.

Just a quick note to say thank you so much to all the staff involved for everything this weekend (and Kerri during the last 14 months!!) We're still on such a high and just had the most amazing time from start to finish! We're just at Heathrow waiting to jet off but I'll be doing a detailed review for you when we get back (Tom's already done one while we've been sitting here also!)

By Katy & David, on 01 May 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Apr 2017

Just to say a massive thank you for everything you did related to our wedding. We had such a fantastic time and the hotel, outside venue and organisation could not have made it more special. Everything was brilliant and David and I have so many special moments to treasure. Thank you again and we can't wait to come back for our anniversary next year and for years to come!!!
