Nothing was too much bother
Venue Service

By Hannah and Kevin, on 19 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Feb 2018

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our day so special on Saturday. You ensured that we were calm, relaxed and that everything went without a hitch! Nothing was too much bother for you all and you made sure that our daughter felt so special and included in the day. We had a wonderful day/night and would like to thank you all for making that happen.

We had our wedding at The Orangery on 30th December 2017. They were experiencing some issues with staff and we were on our 4th wedding co-ordinator by the time we got married which was very worrying (the other 3 co-ordinators had left) however we need not have panicked. Our last minute replacement co-ordinator Toni (the pocket rocket) knew exactly what she was doing. We were absolutely amazed by the exceptional service and quality that we have received from her. The food was sublime (if you go for this venue then Souffle To You are AMAZING caterers!!!). Lots of our guests have commented that it was the best food they have had at a wedding, it was served piping hot to all of our 150 sit down guests in minutes - like a military operation. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. We honestly cannot find fault with anyone on the actual day. Thank you so much to everyone involved.

Nothing was ever too much
Venue Service

By Laura and James, on 02 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Dec 2017

We just want to say a massive thank you to the Orangery, for making our big day the most amazing and perfect day we could imagine. From the start when we booked our wedding to the end of the day of our wedding the service we received has been amazing. Nothing was ever too much and the help and advice we received has been brilliant. We are so sad it’s all over and want to do it all over again. We had so many comments on how lovely the venue was, which of course we already knew!!! But was so lovely to hear our guests agreed with us. Everything ran so smooth and I didn’t have anything to worry about. I cannot thank you enough.

Thank you for everything

Everything exceeded our expectations
Venue Service

By Tash and Matt, on 04 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Sep 2017

Dear Kym, We can't thank you enough for all your help leading up to and on the day, it has been a real pleasure to work with you and you really made us feel so relaxed and calm! Everything exceeded our expectations. The whole venue was stunning and so many of our guests commented on how beautiful the Orangery was. Thank you for making sure the day ran so smoothly, there is nothing that can be faulted. It's easy to see that you love your job and are passionate about what you do, we couldn't have asked for anyone better to help run our wedding day. We were amazed at how thorough you were with the organising of the day, down to every detail and yet how personal you made it, we really felt as though we were centre of the world on that day with no worries to think about. We never once regretted choosing the Orangery and will be recommending you to everyone we know. We are so grateful for letting us have our perfect wedding at your beautiful venue.

The Perfect Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Chantal & David Cameron, on 08 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Aug 2017

Words can't describe how perfect this venue is and how amazing all of the staff there are. The venue itself was the perfect backdrop for our big day and the stunning grounds made sure every photo looks magical. All of or guests were blown away by the natural beauty of the place and we received so many compliments about the venue and the grounds. Aside from the venue, the staff are absolutely fantastic... They ran a very tight ship and ensured that the day ran seamlessly. A special shout out goes to our wedding coordinator Toni.. You were fantastic. Completely on top of everything at all times which meant we had a truly stress free day and could enjoy every moment... your input was priceless and you really seemed to care about us and making sure we had the day we wanted - Thank you. Big thanks also to Don, the duty manager who, again, was completely organised and made sure everything ran to time. Thanks also to Karen, Nick and the team at Soufflé who provided our delicious canapés, wedding breakfast and evening buffet. The service was spotless. We also used Yvonne from the Dressing Rooms for our chair covers and table numbers and she did a fantastic job. We were especially pleased with our personalised memory ladder which was beautifully done and received lots of comments. I would highly recommend The Orangery, Soufflé and The Dressing Rooms to any bride and groom planning their big day - You will not regret it! We had the most amazing day and made memories that we will treasure forever.

Our perfect rainy summer wedding!!!
Venue Service

By Chelsea Luckham, on 14 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2017

We booked our summer wedding at the Orangery due to the lovely grounds and building. Little did we prepare for a day of torrential rain! However, I must say we had a wonderful day despite the weather, the staff were fully prepared for this and made sure everything went to plan. We have has such great feedback from all our guests which is lovely to hear. I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding at anytime of year.

Stunning and immaculate venue with an amazing team
Venue Service

By Rebecca and Alexander Blackman, on 30 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2017

A truly wonderful wedding venue. With the Orangery you get a highly professional, attentive and dedicated team of people who ensure your wedding day is faultless, It was telling that when we spoke to suppliers everyone of them commented on how organised the Orangery are. Our thanks go to Caroline and Don for all your efforts coordinating on the day. And in particular we thank Toni for all her work to ensure our wedding day was truly special. You're all remarkable people!

Excellent service
Venue Service

By Jeneh and Gaiva, on 14 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2017

I chose the venue because even in winter, one has to fall in love with a walled garden..with lakes and a waterfall.. ( in summer even more beautiful.., you should see our photographs!) was like walking into an enchanted garden.. walking around during the viewing, I thought - my parents will like it here..the peaceful tranquility, far from the madding crowd..., I also thought - my siblings and friends will like it here..the understated elegance of the place.. effortlessly pretty even without make-up.. my nephews and godchild would like this.. fresh, green air, loads of space to run around in.. so we went for it. And 6 weeks post wedding, we're still enchanted. Our wedding was all we wanted it to be.. and more.. the excellent service we got from all the recommended vendors: the flower arrangements, the food, the music ( DJ and string quartet), the way everything flowed without a hiccup : awesome. We realize that all this takes a lot of behind the scenes running around, following up with vendors etc - with the Orangery, one really does not need a wedding planner. Our wedding day was a happy day. Many thanks to the Orangery team - we'll definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a venue for just about anything really. If we could go back and do it all over again, we'll make the exact same choice.

The day was faultless
Venue Service

By Maddie and Phil, on 20 May 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Apr 2017

Dear Toni, Quite frankly I don't know how to put into words how grateful we are to you and the Orangery. The day to us was faultless, we could not have asked for anything more. It exceeded all expectations of our big day! You were absolutely amazing, so calm and organised, and made us and our friends and family feel like we were in such capable hands. John was absolutely amazing, also, for his management of the evening reception, again, running a smooth operation until the very end. So many guests have complimented the venue and the smooth running of the day, with many of the north easterners finding a love of the south east they never had!! No words can express our gratitude, you and the Orangery are simply sensational.
