    Winter wedding

    We got married nearly a year ago now 1/11/2019.
    Wivenhoe house is truest beautiful and it I feel should be higher on people’s list for a wedding venue. The house is beautiful and I loved my wedding day. Katie was perfect as a planner and listened to us completely even my husbands idea of llamas!! Which we didn’t follow through with. The price was amazing for what we got included!!
    The food was so great!! Especially the pudding and the evening buffet was the best I’d seen for the amount and selection. Would highly recommend the sliders. Overall I would give 10/10.

    Perfect day

    My husband and I got married here on the 30th June. We honestly couldn't have picked a better venue. We first visited this venue on a wedding open evening that they had, and it was incredibly busy. Yet, there was a member of staff on hand that could help and attend any questions/queries that we had. I'd spent a year planning our wedding, mainly with Katie Ballard. Her help and knowledge of wedding planning really was second to none. I'd never planned a wedding before so all of her help and guidance was very much appreciated. I had many visits to WHH throughout the year and each member of staff honestly couldn't do more for you. We did a menu tasting for our wedding day and was assisted by Ellie in the Brasserie. Her knowledge on all of the food options available was very impressive. The food was outstanding, we had 3 courses and 4 different dishes and each one was cooked and served to perfection. It's safe to say that Our wedding day was more than I could ever had imagined. It truly was perfect in every way and ran incredibly smoothly. Our guests also found the staff to be incredibly helpful and attentive, as they were helped with luggage, and allowing a few guests into their rooms a little earlier. I honestly couldn't recommend this venue enough. The house and grounds are breathtaking. And the staff are truly what make it the most wonderful, memorable experience.
