    Love is not cancelled

    Ben and I were due to get married at the beautiful Manor House, Castle Combe on 29th May 2020. However, by the middle of March, the likelihood of our special day being a reality was getting smaller and smaller. When the situation first unfolded, Gemma was on it straightaway, put us at ease, and came up with a million solutions to help make our day happen. I knew instantly we were in very safe hands. The pandemic escalated very quickly after that, and by the end of March, we knew our day was not meant to be, and postponing was our only option. Gemma, again, jumped on the case immediately, was always so positive on the phone and by email, making me feel like I was the only bride in the world- which I know was not the case at all. We now have a new date for April 2021, and the transition was so smooth and easy, thanks to Gemma’s exceptional positivity and organisation. We have not lost a single thing, only gained an extra 10 months to enjoy the build up. We cannot wait to visit The Manor House again, as soon as it’s safe to do so, to toast our new date in the amazing gin bar - hopefully Gemma can join us!
    If we feel the same love and support that we have received so far on our new date, we know it’s going to be a truly special day.

    Huge thank you to the whole team at The Manor House - we’re so glad we found you.

    Love is not cancelled

    So, the moment came when we made the decision to postpone our wedding. There were quite a few tears, and the feeling of utter disappointment as the government confirmed weddings could not take place. We’ve been engaged since Sept 2018, and were due to get married on the 20th June 2020. So much preparation had gone into planning our wedding, The Manor House is where we got engaged and it is our dream venue. We were getting more and more excited as our day approached, only to have it taken away from us much like many other couples across the globe.

    But postponing our wedding has been a positive experience, The Manor House (Gemma Smith our Wedding Manager) kept us up-to-date on the hotel’s situation and managed to book our new date next year with no issues. All of the suppliers that the hotel recommended were amazing, completely understanding and amended their contracts to accommodate us. They worked closely with us to switch to our new date seamlessly and to our absolute relief.

    We had amazing support from our family and friends who were nothing but sympathetic and supportive. My partner was my rock and going through this has only made me want to marry him more. We celebrated re-arranging our date with a bottle of Champagne we had been saving for our wedding. The silver lining of this whole situation is when we are all able to celebrate next year, our day will be even more special. Nothing was more important to us than having our friends and family happy and healthy. Another silver lining is I have another year to lose some weight for my dress!

    The Perfect Place for a Dream Wedding!

    Where do we even start!!

    The beauty of the Venue and grounds speak for themselves! I challenge anyone to not fall in love with the quaint cobbled Village of Castle Combe from the moment you step foot into it, let alone The 'Magical' Manor House!

    We just want to say the biggest heartfelt thank you to all of the team at the Manor House. Jo and Gemma, the support and advice you gave from start to finish was amazing and made everything so much easier on the day! (even with all my questions ;p). Fab ladies, couldn't have done it without you!

    Andrew, Alex and your team - you were all unbelievable with the service you gave to us and all the family/friends. Our day was more perfect than we could have ever imagined and you all played such a huge part in making that happen. There was nothing that was too much effort. We have received nothing but compliments on how wonderful the staff were. The service was seamless!

    Also please can you extend our thanks and compliments to the Chef (Rob) and his team! The food was INSANE! The number of guests who came up to us to say the food was the best they have ever had at a wedding (or ever).

    So much love for the Manor House - such a special place!

    We will be seeing you again on our 1 year anniversary (and hopefully every year that follows!) Can't wait!

    Stress Free Wedding

    We are both extremely grateful to everyone at the Manor House for making our wedding so enjoyable and stress-free. We couldn't have selected a better venue, both the hotel and gardens were so beautiful and represented the perfect setting in which to celebrate our big day. The team were fantastic, everyone was so friendly and courteous, always happy to help with any needs we had. Special mention must go to both yourself, as your diligent and fastidious planning made the day go so smoothly and of course, Karolina whose professionalism was second to none, a true star that attended to every aspect of our day.

    All of the guests (including Bramble) thoroughly enjoyed themselves and congratulated us on choosing such a magical venue. The food was delicious, the wine delightful and we are all made to feel so special on the day. I recall that our photographer was especially impressed with his vegan meal and proclaimed that he had never had been so well looked after. You even managed to keep the rain at bay, which considering the bleak forecast a week beforehand, was such a relief!

    We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone at The Manor House every success in the future, we will have to ensure that we return for our anniversary!

    All the very best

    Everything you hope for in your special day!

    I can honestly say that our wedding day at The Manor House, Castle Combe exceeded every hope and expectation for our big day - the venue is simply stunning and the food, rooms and staff were all outstanding in themselves. Gemma is the Wedding Co-ordinator every bride should wish for - always so helpful, friendly and readily available to give her professional advice. So many of our guests have passed on their compliments and have commented that our wedding was the best they'd ever been to! Both my husband and I are so delighted that we chose this venue for our special day - there's not a single thing we'd change! Thank you to all the team at The Manor House for making our dream day a reality.

    Two Grooms - One Amazing Wedding

    Our wedding at The Manor House went beyond our wildest dreams. It was the storybook wedding we had hoped for made only better by the amazing staff, the beautiful grounds and the elegant grandeur of the buildings. Coming from the USA and having never visited the location before was an internet gamble that paid off big time. We were constantly put at ease by the open communication with wedding coordinator Gemma Smith and the staff. They were always available and helpful beyond belief. It made the planning our wedding easy and all the recommended vendors they suggested were top notch. When the day came, everything went off without a hitch. We were taken care of and treated like royalty. We had multiple guests pull us aside saying that this venue, the village of Castle Combe and the magic of the day made it simply the best wedding they have ever attended. We could not recommend a better spot for a wedding in the English countryside!

    Lovely staff & a great day!

    Just wanted to say thank you for all the work on our wedding.

    We had an amazing day. The staff throughout our stay were so lovely. Our family really enjoyed it too and thought the hotel and food were excellent.

    We will definitely be making regular anniversary trips back in the future.

    Great choice of venue

    We had a perfect day on Thursday, everything went so well and it was so nice to see our friends in the evening. The platters really went down well, and enjoyed by all.
    The canapés and our meal were really good and Karolina who looked after us was absolutely marvellous, she worked tirelessly all afternoon and evening.
    The rooms worked really well and gave us plenty of space for the afternoon and evening. Certainly space enough for 30 people.
    Phil enjoyed the golf & fortunately wasn't temped to play 18 holes and was on time for the ceremony !!
    Definitely a great choice of venue and made complete by all the friendly staff and organisation and planning by yourself so thank you for making it such a memorable day.
    Best regards,
    Denise and Phil

    Perfect- we would not have changed anything

    Gemma and the team are amazing, the build up was managed brilliantly and the day went without a problem and we felt very looked after.
    I would highly recommend them - you would not be disappointed

    Amazing Day

    The wedding was an amazing day and I have been in touch with Gemma already to thank her for all of her hard work before and during the day. Your staff were brilliant and everyone had a marvellous day. There were four staff who appeared to be there all day and they were particularly helpful and went out of their way to ensure that everything was taken care off during the day. However, every member of your staff played their part.

    Perfect day, Wonderful venue. Best day ever!

    My daughter got married at The Manor House on 27 July this year. We had the most perfect day. The venue and grounds were stunning and the weather was glorious :). The wedding coordinator and all members of staff were very helpful and courteous and nothing was too much trouble. We went through the plans for the big day beforehand, so everything ran very smoothly. We chose to have exclusive use, which meant our guests were able to stay the night of the wedding - this was great, as we were able to share breakfast with them the next morning, and it meant that no-one had to leave early or catch taxis etc on big day. Everyone commented on how nice their rooms were and a great time was had by all :).

    I would highly recommend The Manor House - the rooms, the hotel, the grounds, the staff and the location were all exceptional. Just wish we could re-live the day again!

    Perfect

    From start to finish The Manor House was consistently 5 stars, the staff were extremely accommodating, professional and efficient. The food was amazing, the rooms were amazing, the organisation and coordination of everything we had requested was spot on. The entirety of the venue was amazing. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves, as did we. We would do it all again.

    June Wedding in a magical setting

    We got married last month at The Manor House and could not thank the staff enough. Unfortunately during our planning the wedding planner left and we were further put in contact with events manager Joanne, she did the most amazing job at sorting all minor to larger details and running through the planning to make sure the day was perfect. The wedding day was absolutely faultless, and all due to the hard working, attentive and polite staff. Nothing ever seemed too difficult or a problem for the staff. The Manor House is 5 star and you can really see why, not just from the beautiful setting and features of the house but the staff overall made our day unforgettable.
    We felt like royalty and all our guests have made such beautiful positive comments on the venue. If we chose to get married again, we would go back to the Manor House and do it all again!
