thank you so much Jordan
Venue Service

By Sue Lyn & Aaron, on 08 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Oct 2019

Dear Jordan, First and foremost, my wife and I would like to extend the biggest thank you to you, Jordan, and your lovely team at the Woodman Inn; for making our wedding day so so special. We will forever remember this lovely day. From the moment we found the Woodman Inn last year, we had 5 star service from ALL the staff members. Everyone who spoked to us from the start treated us with kindness and answered all our questions. We still remember coming to the Woodman Inn 1 year ago meeting Chloe then Jordan. Both gave us a lovely tour of the venue along with describing the layout and what the wedding package entails. We are truly grateful Jordan, for your continuous and effective communication between us throughout the past year. Thank you Jordan for your kind and thoughtful personality during our final meeting. Thank you for guiding us through the final preparation and making our wedding day a successful one. Sue Lyn and I really appreciated your input/suggestions Jordan on incorporating the local tradition into our wedding ceremony. We really had lots of fun that day. Thank you for coordinating with the florist, photographers, and the cake baker on our special day. We appreciate your clear and strong voice ushering our guest on Sunday. To the wonderful chef, oh my word, the food was AMAZING. Our guest commented “Food was amazing” “I’ve never tasted such good food throughout all the weddings that I have been too” “Oh my, so yummy!” We both loved the food too! Sue Lyn and I will forever remember this special day of ours spent with family and friends at the Woodman Inn. Thank you Woodman Inn. Thank you so much Jordan. Best wishes Sue Lyn and Aaron Wedding on 6/10/19

In regards to feed back... Our day was fault-less. The team was fantastic, with great sense of humour and amazing tolerance for drunken shenanigans. The food was next level and everyone raved about it. Thank you so much for all your help leading up to and on the day. You made us feel very special and very relaxed, knowing that the days organisation was in good hands. The rooms were next level. I don't think I've had that good a nights sleep for a very long time. Please pass our thanks onto the bar team, they were fantastic and please know that we will recommend The Woodman Inn for years to come!

Jordan, we love you

We both cannot thank you enough for everything you and your team did to make our wedding perfect for us! Whilst away on our honeymoon our phones have not stopped with lovely messages from our guests saying how amazing the wedding at the Woodman Inn was and how beaut the food was! From starting our preparations in Feburary you have been totally amazing, especially putting up with me and my non stop emails, Jordan you were always happy to amend anything we wanted to change to make sure we had everything as bespoke as we wanted to make the day how we wanted it to be! Your own carefully planning and attention to detail did not go un missed everyone was welcomed by such warm & friendly staff the canopes were delicious and you even saved us a little tray so that the bride and groom didn't miss out ? 1. To Jordan you are definitely in the right job you are just so easy going,down to earth and make things so relaxed and stress free just what every bride and groom need! You are a credit to the Woodman and you truly make wedding planning a dream ? chatty, bubbly and present in everything you do .. so a huge thank you the woodman wouldn't be the same without you xxx

Hello Jordan, Thank you, the day was absolutely amazing, just trying to calm down into everyday life again. I don't think we could have wished for the day to go better, yourself and the team were great, the day was fluid and well paced, the decoration was done incredibly and we were able to relax and enjoy our day because you just sorted everything for us. I have had an endless stream of people saying how perfect the day was, in particular how amazing the food was. I can definitely say we will be coming back very often. thank you so so so much

Most Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Amy & Connor, on 19 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Sep 2019

We had the most perfect wedding day and cannot recommend The Woodman Inn enough, the staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble, Jordan in particular! He dealt with my indecisiveness and last minute decision changes like a complete professional and we could not have been happier with how our day turned out! Thank you so much to each and every member of staff who contributed to our special day, we will never forget it!

Relaxed and Joyful Day
Venue Service

By Maddie & Alex, on 19 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Aug 2019

We had absolutely the best day we could have wished for, everything came together perfectly. You guys created an incredible, seamless day for us and our guests, everyone is still relishing in how much of a relaxed and joyful day it was. The food was beautiful (as we knew it would be... Everyone was waxing lyrical about the pulled pork!). From day 1, through to our menu (and drinks) tasting and the communication between yourselves and us as the day neared, everything was brilliant and we couldn't fault a thing. We'd like to thank all the events team and the rest of the staff on the day, and everyone who we've met at the Woodman through our wedding planning for providing such a friendly, personable and relaxed environment for us to get married in. We'd recommend you all to anyone. We'll definitely be back, no doubt about that!

Seamless Wedding
Venue Service

By Katie & Thomas, on 19 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2019

I could go on forever about how amazing our day was - and that is truly all down to you and all the effort you put in to helping us plan the day and make sure it all ran smoothly. It wouldn't have been the day it was without your input and effort. All of your events team are brilliant and so attentive. All of our guests mentioned how polite the staff were and how well timed the service was. No one had the wrong meal or had to wait for their meal etc. It was seamless. The venue looked stunning! And although a lot of that was Stems Design, I know that you had a lot of input and helped with the design too - and we can't thank you enough - it was everything we wanted. You have a stunning venue, a great team of people, but all of it would be nothing without you! You make the Woodman what it is - it is your personality and attention to detail that really makes the day. I would recommend the venue and yourself to anyone! So thank you once again, we will forever be grateful and have so many special memories - but most importantly we have gained a special friend in you.

Perfect Woodland Venue

By Ella, on 19 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2019

We honestly could not have asked for a happier, lovelier day! Even though it rained I think it added to the atmosphere! You and your team were amazing and we cannot express our thanks enough. All Alex and I wanted was a relaxed, informal, woodlandy day (with a bloody good party!) and that is what we had! We definitely will be back ( I have a 30th coming up!) Thanks so much again!

Thank you Jordan

Just a quick email to thank you all for such a fantastic day yesterday! We enjoyed every second! We definitely picked the the right day weather wise!

Dear Jordan and the team, We wanted to say thank you so much for our amazing and wonderful wedding on the 20/7/19. You were so helpful and kind on the day, getting everything that we needed and understanding the pace and the need to keep the children happy. Liaising with friends and family and any other suppliers for the big day. We loved the personal touches and the fact all the team were so fun, kind and thoughtful. You made our day super special and we have had so many compliments on the venue and the food. The marquee was beautiful and the grounds perfect we have so many amazing photos.

By Rachel & Andy, on 19 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Jun 2019

We would like to thank everyone at The Woodman Inn for laying on a fantastic wedding day for us and helping us to make it so special. We have had many comments from family and friends saying how much they all enjoyed it too. Jordan and Hannah were really great to deal with and were so accommodating of our every wish. They were always at the end of the phone or email if we had a question or query over every minor thing and made us feel very relaxed about everything. All the staff on the day were superb, sorry can’t remember all your names, but Dan the man was a great laugh and think he and the other staff had fun too! The food was lovely, the drinks flowed, the venue was perfect for our numbers and the bedrooms were fantastic! All that followed up with a tasty breakfast. Well done to all of you, pats on the back all round. Thank you again and we will see you sometime soon for Sunday lunch or something.
