Perfect day in everyday
Venue Service

By Tom and Simone, on 15 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Nov 2019

Hi Jordan, Really struggled to do you guys justice, hope this is okay! From the moment we approached The Woodman Inn, we were taken in by its beautiful setting and instant charm. As we walked inside, we experienced the atmosphere: friendly, cosy and welcoming. It seemed almost perfect. Then we met Jordan, the final piece of the puzzle to a perfect venue. Any words of thanks and praise I can heap on this guy do him absolutely no justice at all. The Woodman was the first place we visited on our search for a venue. It was also the last, and we cannot recommend it enough. From the very start of the process, until the very end, the service we received was faultless. Jordan answered every question, query or concern swiftly and with a personal touch, we really got the feeling we weren’t just “another customer”. Everything was made as easy as possible with Jordan and his team co-ordinating with everyone required after introductions had been made, meaning that on the big day, everything fell into place perfectly, everyone was where they needed to be, when they needed to be there and we didn’t need to worry about a thing. When the day finally came, it really was perfect. The team at the Woodman and Melanie, our florist, worked incredibly hard and made the room look absolutely stunning, both before the service and then again for dinner, which was incredible. The standard of the food was absolutely out of this world.

Hi Jordan, We are back after 2 nights in Whitby. Well what can we say about our day, it was everything we wanted and more. It all went by so fast but honestly you guys were amazing. The whole team could not do enough. We've had such amazing feedback from our friends and family. We can't thank you all enough for the best day. Can't wait to receive the pictures back from our photographer. I've attached a picture we've received ??

In terms of feedback we’re at a bit of a loss for words, everything was so perfect and we know that a significant part of that was down to you and the team. Our day ran so smoothly and you totally smashed it with setting up our tables, you captured our vision perfectly. All we can say is a huge thank you, we wouldn’t have changed a single thing; the Woodman Inn will always be such a special place for us ?? We’ll be back with some photos and for a roast very soon! With all our thanks Colette and Marc xx

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

dreams come true
Venue Service

By The Ellisons, on 03 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Sep 2019

Hi Jordan & the rest of the team. Me and Wayne would just like to take this opportunity to thank you all for making our wedding day perfect. We fell upon the Woodman Inn by accident while visiting anouther wedding venue in the area & we fell in love with the place straight away. The beautiful woodland surroundings and gorgeous country inn are just picturesque. However it's the staff at the Woodman that really make the place special. From the moment we booked you went out of your way to make sure our every worry and concern was dealt with in the most professional manner. As for the days its self you were all on hand to make sure our day was one we would remember for the rest of our lives. It was even better than we had imagined. All of our guests commented on how well the day was run and how looked after they felt. Thank you all so much for making our wedding day a dream come true. The Ellisons 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

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!

The Most Amazing Day!
Venue Service

By Chanelle & Matthew, on 28 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2019

I simply cannot put into words how perfect our wedding day was at the Woodman Inn. Jordan and the team were out of this world and went above and beyond to make our dream day come true. From the beginning of the wedding planning process to end the team were there to answer any queries and managed to capture every last detail so beautifully. This ensured that we could relax and enjoy the day whilst Jordan, Elinor and the team handled everything. Even a month on from our wedding and our guests are still in amazement at how friendly, professional and attentive all the staff were. The venue, the team, the food (omg the food) everything was perfect!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

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!
