    Thank you thank you thank you!

    Thank you to yourself for Wicksteed Park went over and above to make sure our day ran perfectly!
    We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and everyone I've seen since who attended said how much they enjoyed themselves.
    The food was great, the fish was perfect!
    All staff were great, venue was perfect (especially when the sun came out!) and all in all I would not change a thing if I was given the chance to do it again.
    Again thank you and I'm sure our paths will cross again one day!

    Best day of our lives!

    Thank you for everything, it was the best day of our lives and we are so happy to finally be married.
    Walking into the venue for the reception was a particular highlight of the day. The set up looked amazing and everyone involved did a great job. We were constantly told about how the venue was beautiful by our guests.

    Georgina, thank you for helping us and making the planning feel so easy.

    Perfect!

    Hope you are well
    We have just got back off our honeymoon and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and all at Wicksteed Park for making our day so perfect! Our guests absolutely loved the grounds - it was a perfect setting for the perfect day. The rain held off until the evening which meant our drinks reception was outside as planned!! Our day went smoothly and completely to plan! Your service was very thorough, reliable, you were easy to contact and adaptable to changes made through the process. Thank you

    Amazing!

    I can’t tell you just how much we loved the venue!
    You were amazing and although your pricing is very reasonable, we’ve found a cheaper venue and with having two children we had no choice really but to go with the cheapest option. Thank you so much for your help and for showing us around, I’ve already been recommending Wicksteed Park as a wedding venue as it really is stunning and Georgina's customer service skills are really phenomenal.
    Thanks again for all your help, Catia xx
