Thank you!!!

Well Honey and Team, where do we start.... We really can't thank you enough for the amazing day we had last Thursday, 29th. We just want to do it all over again.
From the first moment we visited Tuddenham Mill we knew we wanted to get married there. It really is the most relaxing place we have ever been to. We start to relax the moment we walk through the doors.
Honey from the moment we met we knew everything was under control. We really can't praise you enough. From start to finish your attention to detail has been amazing. We feel we truly have made friends at Tuddenham Mill. I'm afraid we will be visiting lots!! Along with Stanley obviously.
I'm unsure I can write how grateful we are to you and the team there. You really have made a special day amazing, beyond words and we are so thankful. You all worked so hard to make our day the best and it really is appreciated.
We look forward to seeing you very soon.
Much love and thanks The Youngs xx

We cannot thank you enough

We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work in the run up and on the day and that you and the Tuddenham team delivered an excellent wedding. We have been so overwhelmed by everyone’s feedback and how much they loved the day and the location and how nice the atmosphere was and that was definitely attributable to how hard you all worked (November 2016 Miranda & Matko)

Excellent & Well Organised

- Thanks for all your help looking after Laura on her big day, the preparations beforehand and seeing us all off the day after.
Everything was handled quietly and professionally and the whole day flowed really well. Thank you for working behind the scenes to make sure all fell into place.
Laura and Tom had a great time and commented the following day that everything just flew by, which I feel is the mark of a well organised event. The service and rooms were excellent and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the wedding, well done and thank you from us all! October 2016 Laura & Tom

Definitely a hidden treasure

Tuddenham Mill is such a beautiful hotel, which is excelled by the staff and food that make this place so different. My husband and I got married at Tuddenham Mill in February 2013, this is a perfect location for an intimate wedding. We hired the hotel for the whole weekend and had a lovely informal meal with our family and friends on the Friday evening. We had our wedding ceremony, sit down wedding breakfast and reception on the Saturday. To finish the weekend we had tea served with our wedding cake on the Sunday, which just like the previous days was served with so much attention to detail. It was so lovely to have all our family and friends around us to celebrate our wedding for the whole weekend. The staff at Tuddenham Mill were so welcoming and accommodating to all of our guests and nothing was ever too much.

The chef here is outstanding, the food he produces could without a doubt be served in Michelin Stared restaurants. My husband and I wanted something different from the norm for our wedding breakfast and this was just perfect.

I cannot express our gratitude enough of how well the whole weekend was organised. Lyndon, Hannah and so many staff worked so incredibly hard all weekend to ensure that all our needs were met, all our guests commented on how hard they all worked to ensure everything ran smoothly and that everyone enjoyed themselves.

Hannah was so helpful with all the planning that goes into a wedding, she put us in touch with many of the contacts from photographer, harpist, local beauticians etc. She took all the stresses away by providing me guidance and kept me informed every step of the preparation to the day.

A stunning setting and so romantic

My wedding day memories will be of being greeted by Pascal the manager as I arrived full of nerves to be greeted with charm and smiles and help all through the day to make it so special for us.We wanted an informal wedding which themed highly on the food as we had dined here a lot and Mick had proposed to me at the Mill a year ago.The wines were also superb (which is not always the case with a wedding).The swan family was also there to greet us and the children loved feeding the ducks and watching the birds.It was a truly English family wedding and all the arrangements went like clock work
