Recent Wedding Reception at Wickwoods
Venue Service

By Geraldine Davis, on 08 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

My daughter recently held her wedding reception at Wickwoods. The entire experience was wonderful. The grounds are lovely for photos and it was great to have the view of the gardens from the function room. The food was delicious and several people commented on the excellent service of the waiting staff. We all had a wonderful time, dancing the night away. We were also very happy with our rooms which had very comfortable beds. I would certainly recommend Wickwoods to anyone looking for a good wedding venue.

Our dream wedding!!
Venue Service

By Emma & Jake, on 08 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2018

We got married at Wickwoods in August this year and had the best day of our lives! From our first viewing of the venue, Wendy and the team were fantastic, they wanted to help us with whatever they could to make sure we had the perfect day. The venue itself is beautiful, offering a number of spacious rooms, a picturesque outdoor area and terrace and the elegance of the Glass House for your ceremony. All of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly on the day, getting to know our guests and becoming part of the celebration. The next morning, they even held a special breakfast for us, our guests and friends and family that were staying nearby so we could continue the wedding buzz. We would definitely recommend this venue for weddings, parties or just a relaxing weekend away, we can't wait to return for a spa day in the near future.

Perfect venue for a wedding reception
Venue Service

By Lynne Cooper, on 08 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Aug 2018

My daughter and husband held their wedding reception here the week before last, and we, along with the rest of our family, stayed at the hotel. It has beautiful grounds, the food was delicious, and service was outstanding and efficient throughout the day - an opinion expressed many times over by our guests. They hold only one wedding per weekend, so we were able to get the room ready on Friday evening. The hotel accommodation was comfortable and well-equipped, and breakfast excellent and plentiful. Once again the staff were kind and helpful, particulatly to our elderly parents, who described them as "first-class and charming" All in all, we could not have wished for a better venue.

Thank You Wendy, Jasmine & The Team at Wickwoods!
Venue Service

By Zoe & Luke, on 14 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

Luke and I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work on our special day. Several guests wanted to let us know how brilliant they thought the venue, food & service was and we couldn't agree with them more! Everything was beautiful and your help was invaluable in both the build up to the day, and on the day, no detail was left. Every aspect of our day was wonderful including the rooms and the breakfast. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Wickwoods to any of our friends and family. Thank you so much for making our special day so perfect!

Just married!
Venue Service

By Tim & Julia Ashdown, on 08 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2018

We just wanted to thank all of the staff at Wickwoods, for helping to make our wedding the most amazing day imaginable! From our very first meeting with Wickwoods, way back when we started planning the wedding, it was clear to see that they are extremely professional, and everything is carried out to a very high standard. Wendy & Jasmine were always on hand to go through any details we might need, and always made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. On the morning of the big day, they really helped to keep things calm and relaxed, and when the day got started, the organisation & professionalism was second to none. Staff were very attentive, attention to detail was outstanding, and the food was top notch as always. The ceremony in the glass house was absolutely beautiful, and the whole day has been a big hit with everyone. Lots of people have commented that our wedding has been the most chilled wedding they've attended, and everyone was able to really let their hair down. A special mention must go to Wendy, Jasmine, Craig & Matt. They were first class and helped to alleviate any anxiety, so that we could just enjoy our day and take it all in. It was just a shame the day had to come to an end! They are fantastic at what they do, & we would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding venue. A day that we'll cherish forever, & we'll certainly be returning to the scene of the crime in the future!

All our guests commented on how lovely it all was.We will certainly be returning to Wickwoods soon.

What can I say. Wickwoods was absolutely perfect!
Venue Service

By Fiona & Ben Fahey, on 14 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Apr 2018

I can’t recommend the venue more to any couples looking for their perfect venue. It looked stunning and the gardens were perfect for pictures. Not only did it look amazing but I can not praise Wendy and the team enough, they were fantastic and no one could do more for us on the big day. Leading up to it Wendy was fab changing things last minute and accommodating all my requests, she is calm and relaxed meaning I had next to no stress on the lead up to the wedding. Everything at Wickwoods is amazing- the rooms, the food, the staff throughout, the spa - all of it! We have stayed a few times now and always received first class treatment. The food has always been exquisite and all the staff are a credit to the place, I genuinely don’t have a bad word to say about the place and look forward to visiting it again and reminiscing about our perfect day! Thank you Wendy and all the team at Wickwoods you were amazing!!!

Daughters Wedding
Venue Service

By Mother of Alison Walsingham, on 14 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Apr 2018

Following the wedding of my daughter, Jennie on Saturday, I just wanted to ask you to pass on our sincere thanks to your entire team. Everyone working this evening could not have been more accommodating, hard-working and professional, and all contributed to making Jennie & Gareth's wedding a memorable event, it really was wonderful. We cannot thank you all enough, and cannot recommend you highly enough! We also stayed at a local farmhouse that you recommended, belonging to one of your members. She was also fabulous, so thank you for passing on her details.

Venue Service

By Gareth & Jennie, on 14 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Apr 2018

Jennie and I would just like to say a huge thank you to yourself and all of the staff at Wickwoods! We had such a great day and had nothing but positive feedback about the venue and all of the venue staff. Having played at so many wedding venues as part of my job, I have to commend how friendly and welcoming Wickwoods have been, not just on the day but the whole planning process. Special thanks to the duty manager (can't remember what her name was) who let me back into the venue as I almost got locked outside on my wedding night as Wickwoods was closing! Once again, thank you so much for making our wedding day as faff-free as possible!

Our PERFECT wedding reception. Amazing
Venue Service

By Josie & Adam Wilson, on 02 Jun 2014

We booked our post-wedding celebration at Wickwoods last spring, and it was held on 23rd May 2014. Every step of the way we received outstanding service. Wendy and Vanessa answered all of the questions in my very long emails quickly and were happy to help every time. We met with Gemma for our first visit, who was lovely and very helpful. Vanessa was brilliant at our second visit, giving us all the information we needed and suggestions on how to make our evening special. We went away knowing exactly what would happen, and timeframes for our wedding planning. We met with Wendy twice shortly before the event, and what a lovely lady she is. Nothing was too much trouble. Wendy was always on the end of the phone or email sorting all of the final details. Communication at Wickwoods is superb! What I must say is how flexible and understanding everyone was. We had a budget and this was always considered, we were even given suggestions of how to get the best value for money. Some venues that we looked at had very fixed (and high) prices, and Wickwoods was a breath of fresh air. We only went about £6 over budget! The quality of everything at Wickwoods is incredible. Every area of the venue is beautifully decorated and warm, modern and elegant. We had three areas for our reception, the gorgeous main room with fixed dancefloor and large mirrors, the stunning glass house with chandeliers, and the amazing terrace and grounds. For anyone looking for a wedding venue, spa break or a lovely health club to join, this is a wonderful place to visit. Fab, what more can I say!?

Brilliant service and staff
Venue Service

By Jeremy & Diane Howell-Thomas, on 04 Jul 2013

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed being at the Country Club for the Wedding Reception. Perhaps I could highlight the things we thought were really brilliant- the friendly and helpful welcome you gave us- the abundance of caring, thoughtful, knowledgeable, friendly staff and their professional attitude- the way the juicy steaks on the barbecue and the rest of the food were all perfectly prepared, presented and served- the first class bar staff- the cleanliness and tidyness of both the inside areas and landscaped areas- the general ambience you provided for the whole wedding reception. There were no negatives!
