Perfect autumnal wedding
Venue Service

By Hannah & Andy Jarrad, on 29 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 12 Oct 2019

We had our wedding ceremony at the Royal Pump Rooms and reception at Jephson's in October 2019 - it was beyond incredible! Both venues have recently undergone a refurbishment and are so beautiful - Jephson's perfectly compliments the adjoining indoor garden / Temperate House. From the first time we made contact, communication with Steve and Sarah was easy and we felt very looked after. They helped make our day unique and didn't just offer a package deal. They were the first venue to ask us what WE wanted and not just present us with a brochure! We planned our day with Steve and Sarah (Clive and Russell also helped us create our menu which turned out to be fantastic, we've had SO many compliments) - they made everything we wanted doable and nothing was too much. We used quite a lot of external suppliers which can complicate things but everything came together on the day as the venue handled everything. The venues are gorgeous, the food was delicious and we couldn't fault the service - would highly recommend JustInspire!

Hannah & Jarrad, There are no words to describe your day & our time working together, from the moment I met with you both in the Drawing Board I knew you needed something different. To say it was an honour to support you both in creating your vision for your wedding would be an understatement. Working with people who are genuine "Foodies" is often a challenge but in this case, your passion and desire to have something real that was not the norm ensured you got something amazing. I remember seeing your vision come together on the day and it was well worth the effort we all put in. Is it really five months ago? Lovely family & friends, great music from Andy Saunders (A personal blast from the past). It goes without saying that it would be lovely to see you both when you are passing xx

Nick and Lianne wedding July 2019
Venue Service

By Nick and Lianne, on 03 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2019

The service we received from Just Inspire events was beyond our expectation from start to finish. They had a vision of how everything would be planned out which surpassed what we could have ever imagined. We held our reception at Jephson Gardens (with our ceremony across the road at the Pump Rooms and ran by the same people). Everything seemed to go without a hitch or at least we were unaware to any problems. We started the reception with drinks and canapes and an acoustic duo who performed on the terrace for our guests (and any lucky passers-by!) to enjoy. We then had food which many of our guests commented was the best food they had ever received at a wedding. For mains we had the roast beef or vegetable terrine and for dessert we had the cheesecake. I can highly recommend both! Steve, Sarah and the rest of the team are so professional yet so friendly and will really do their utmost to make your day special (they even had a dance with me at the reception!) 100% recommended

Dear Nick & Lianne I can't believe that it is six months since your wedding, it seems like only yesterday that we were getting you ready to walk down the aisle in the temperate house Lianne. It was so much fun observing the nominated carvers whose job it was to serve the joints of beef that were served to tables, your band were amazing and really got the party going in all of the right places. We loved working with Bunting & Willow who made everything look lovely. You were so lucky with the weather it was a perfect day to make the most of the terrace, I know you guys will be so happy together. When you are passing, please do come in and see us for a cup of tea and make sure that you keep in touch xx

Our perfect day!
Venue Service

By Sam & Sophie-Mae Mitchelll, on 17 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2019

Well what can we say! It's been 6 weeks since our wedding day and we are only just coming back down to reality. We cannot thank the whole team enough for just being just so amazing throughout the whole process of planning our day. We have received non stop compliments about all of the team from the day and so it's important these are passed on! We really feel like both Steven & Sarah became good friends and put aside so much time for us when we had multiple questions or queries (or to answer my never ending lists!) whether meeting for a drink, coffee or even arranging a food tasting for us at the pump rooms- I have never met someone like Sarah who is so attentive, the fact that she knew the days breakdown by timings along with all the tiny details off by heart was amazing! The way everyone was greeted by the team on arrival from the church and directed toward the venue as they entered the park to Steven escorting our wedding car through to the front of the venue were just a couple of the tiny details that made our day so special- Not forgetting how all meals were served by the team, this was just so professional. The arrival was perfect, the setting was beautiful and the food was delicious! We have the most beautiful photos from the day and evening and just cannot thank everyone enough for making the day run so smoothly and making it even more perfect than we could imagine, Sam & Sophie-Mae Mitchell

Steven Holland, Managing Director at The Jephson Gardens Riverside Glasshouse responded to this review on 17/02/2020 17:11:47

Sophie, Sophie & Sam of course..... The most organised Bride ever, a career in event management would not be a bad idea for you to consider, you would certainly be welcome on our team. We loved the speeches (Sam yours was legendary) and the whole atmosphere of your day. We loved working with you both and I am so delighted that you enjoyed it so much. I have always taken it as a personal compliment when a client books a wedding with us as it is such a big deal to put faith in someone for such an important occasion. Sarah & I keep laughing when we talk about our Brides and Grooms about how lucky we are with all of them. Sophie & Sam were right up there with two of our favourite people. Please do pop in when you are passing, we would love to keep in touch. Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to write such a lovely review.

Amazing wedding day
Venue Service

By Karen and James Riley, on 09 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 26 May 2019

To say we had the best wedding day ever is an understatement. JustInspire inherited us from previous owners and how lucky we were! The attention to detail from Steven and Sarah is perfection. When planning our wedding they just said tell us what you want and we will make it work, it was a kinda design your wedding with a little recommendation and we make it perfect. Trust their judgement, they are awesome at what they do. We were escorted through the gates to the front of the temperate house were our cars stayed. Our photos are stunning. The drinks reception was in the temperate house with a live singer. The vibe is lovely. Then onto the breakfast in the main building over looking the gorgeous river! The food omg the food! Perfection. Served on sharing boards perfect for socialising. If you are a foodie this venue is a must, incredible food which sometimes you don’t get from large events. Then the party and wow what a party! These guys threw a good one. The party was in the temperate house, perfect surrounding. Steven was on hand for everything we needed and even helped with a few cheeky photos. Ourselves and our guests are in awe of the incredible wedding they produced! I wish we could do it all again and if we could we would choose this venue and team every time. Thanks so much guys for the most magical wedding day! Much love to team JustInspire x

Dear Karen This is such an amazing review, even more so as I know you are currently on Honeymoon in Bali whilst writing it. Every wedding that we do is individual and yours was certainly no different, You and Riley are such a great couple. We loved how you guys turned up in the Beetle and camper van in style like it was completely normal and something you do every day, the way you dressed the room was stunning. Your friends and family are so much fun, I have had several messages from them on facebook & instagram saying what a lovely day they had. Suzie said it was the best wedding she had ever been to! We always say the secret to a successful Wedding or Party is very simple "Surround yourself with great people and the rest will follow" you certainly know some great people. When you are back please do come in and show us some pics, make sure you stay in touch. Thank you so much once again xx

Even better than we could have imagined!
Venue Service

By Katie and Paul White, on 21 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 04 May 2019

We cannot begin to express how fantastic Steven, Sarah, Chef Russell, Ben and the rest of the team at Just Inspire were. The attention to detail and care that they took over helping us form our dream day was amazing. Rather than present us with a package like many venues, they really took the time to get to know us, and came up with some fantastic suggestions to make the day feel unique and special. From taking the care to come up with a sociable sharing wedding breakfast that felt really us, to even finer points such as placing our table in the middle of our guests rather than the front of the room. We've had comments from all of our guests about how much they loved the food - my Dad loved it so much he mentioned in his speech! They were completely flexible through all the planning and right up to the day itself. Sarah even stayed later on the night before the wedding when we overran with setting up the decorations and made us feel that it was no trouble. And I believe the bar staff sourced apple sours for some rowdy friends when they didn't have any behind the bar! The management of the day itself was impeccable. It ran incredibly smoothly - so smoothly that you almost didn't notice anyone taking care of things, but whenever you needed something someone was always there to help. The venue is absolutely stunning, and they were charming people to boot who made us feel that they were just as invested in making it a great day as we were. They really made our day special and we're so grateful!

Dear Katie & Paul As soon as we met you we knew were going to enjoy working with you on your wedding, we were right! You were both so relaxed about everything but knew what you wanted. The sociable dining option was perfect for you and your guests. I still think of you guys when I describe how the menu works, in particular when your guests were passing around the Seared tuna loin rolled in toasted sesame seeds and harissa dressing which I think I made you consider because I love it so much. Great music, lovely friends and family please do pop in when you are passing, it will be lovely to see you both again xx Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review, it really does mean the world to us!

Nowhere better
Venue Service

By Michelle fleet, on 09 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Apr 2019

We fell in love with this place as soon as we saw it. The fact that the aisle was amongst the trees and over the pond added an extra special touch to it. We decided to have the ceremony and the reception at the glasshouse and I’m so glad we did. Our guests were amazed by the picturesque venue and it made it so much more perfect to be able to have everything all in the one place and finish the night dancing under the trees-where else do you get that? Steven and Sarah were so helpful with absolutely everything and as soon as I met them they put all my worries at ease. Nothing was too much hassle and any query I had they solved or problem I had they found a solution. I couldn’t have wished for better people to support our day for us. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone. It’s so unique and the views for the pictures provide so many choices for a backdrop. the Scenes outside provide so much scenery to the venue too that very little is required to accessorise it at all. With half the guests coming from Ireland for the celebrations we drank the venue dry on several occasions and I only found out about it the next day as the staff made sure everything ran absolutely smoothly The staff were so helpful in ensuring and they did an absolutely incredible job of it. Couldn’t thank them enough.

Dear Michelle, Wow... Thank you so much for your amazing review it is so kind & thoughtful of you to take the time to write this. It was an absolute pleasure to support you and Martin with your big day. Your friends and family were so much fun to look after, nothing quite like a good old Irish wedding to get the bar staff working at top speed. Thank you also for making the Riverside Glasshouse look stunning with all of your inspired tables centres & fairly lights. My team and I will always have fond memories of going through the planning stages of your wedding and then helping make it amazing on the day itself. Please do keep in touch, make sure you bring Olive in to see us very soon. Say Hi to your Dad from us when you next speak to him! Thank you so much once again xx
