Perfect Christmas Wedding
Venue Service

By Laura Talmage, on 03 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Dec 2017

My Husband and I were married at Wiston House on 16th December and we couldn't have hoped for a better day. Gemma was outstanding on the run up to the big day, sorting out all the bookings, then Jo - what an absolute star. She took the reigns and made sure that everything was perfect on the day. All the staff at Wiston were brilliant and every guest I spoke to commented on how great everyone was. The food was outstanding, with everything being served with impeccable timing. We went with the option of having a small civil ceremony in the House, then a religious blessing in the church - although not the simplest of options it was absolutely magical. We would thoroughly recommend Wiston to all! - Laura and Will

Truly a day to remember

Thank you so much for the most amazing day on Sunday 1 October celebrating the wedding of Sophie Johnson and Gary Betts. We had high expectations for the day, but the day truly surpassed our expectations. This was due to the fabulous staff who were friendly and attentive ensuring that every detail was perfect. We were also absolutely delighted with our choices of external suppliers and they too felt supported by the Wiston staff. Sophie and Gary looked so happy on the day as they could relax with confidence that all their needs would be catered for. Truly a day to remember. So please do pass on our thanks to: The wedding planners for ensuring the timings were spot on and that every detail was perfect and ensuring the bride didn't see the groom before the wedding! The chefs for the amazing food and the waiting staff for delivering it perfectly. The bar staff for remaining cheerful under pressure! The receptionists for dealing with room keys and welcoming guests and the night staff for dealing with the odd broken glass (sorry)! And for all those behind the scenes for preparing the rooms and making them look beautiful.

Thank you all so much.

You not only met them, you surpassed them! Everyone was incredible. The staff were phenomenal and instrumental in making our day go so smoothly. Again, we cannot thank everyone at Wiston for their efforts in making our day simply amazing. My only disappointment is that it was over too soon! Hopefully one day we can return to have a look around and relive special memories.

Thank you for being so so so brilliant!

I just wanted to drop you an email to say how truly grateful we are for giving us the most perfect day. We thoroughly enjoyed every single second of it and both felt so calm thanks to you! Thank you for calming me down throughout the whole process and thank you for always being so friendly. I will miss hearing from you and seeing you! All of our guests had the most amazing day and were in complete awe of such a beautiful venue. I am suffering from wedding blues and would love to do it all again!! Words can't describe how happy we were on the day, I can't believe it went so quick. You, and the house, will always have a special place in our hearts.

Thank you

The venue itself was what made it for us. The interior of the house is of such quality, is so well-maintained and tasteful and the exterior is so impressive and the grounds so beautiful, it was far and away the best wedding venue we visited. The staff were all excellent. Very attentive and helpful but also very friendly and relaxed. It really put us at ease and allowed us to really enjoy the day. The quality of food at the wedding breakfast was absolutely superb. We were so pleased. It tasted exactly as it did at the tasting. Wiston is such a superb wedding venue because it combines total professionalism with an incredibly friendly, relaxed and flexible manner and attitude. This made everything so much easier in terms of the planning and in the build-up but also allowed us to fully enjoy the day issue-free!

All staff went that extra mile

The wedding breakfast was amazing. My family and friends have all commented on the food and I know that some family members have sent the chefs a card.

A lovely touch
Venue Service

By Father of the bride, on 10 Feb 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Nov 2016

We had a great wedding day and everything went very smoothly. Our coordinator on the day was excellent. We had lots of cheese left over so I asked if he could arrange for this to be cut up so I could give to some people to take home. He went above and beyond and all guests were able to take a goody bag home with some cheese and crackers. This was such a lovely touch and our guests loved it.

Our day was magical
