Flawless - The perfect day

We had our wedding ceremony & reception at the Oaksmere & wow, the whole day from start to finish was flawless.
All the staff that dealt with our wedding were professional, friendly & attentive to every detail. They met every request we or a guest had instantly.
It was important to us to have our nearest & dearest stay onsite with us, the hotel was lovely & the rooms full of character.
The grounds of the Oaksmere are stunning, lots of different places for amazing photos.
The marquee itself is beautiful, large & a great blank canvas to set up, section off & decorate exactly how you want. Its set away from the hotel & overlooks the grounds, so we opted to have the sides open to create a beautiful outside feel to our wedding.
We have had nothing but compliments back about how amazing all the food was from start to finish. It was all delicious and to a high standard. The service was timed perfectly too.
We would give the Oaksmere 5 stars for our day & wish we could do it all over again!
