Could not have had a better wedding anywhere else
Venue Service

By Frances & Paul Howard, on 12 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2017

We couldn't thank Joanne and the rest of the staff at Woburn Safari Park enough for helping us to have a completely perfect wedding day. We made the most of this wonderful and unique venue by having a double-decker bus take our guests around the road safari, followed by an elephant encounter. Everyone had an excellent time. The Lodge is a beautiful venue with excellent facilities. Joanne was superb from the moment we first viewed the venue until we collected left-over stuff the morning after the wedding; she was friendly, organised and professional. We couldn't have had a better wedding anywhere else

Our wedding went exactly as planned
Venue Service

By Karen & Ron Daniel, on 12 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Sep 2017

Our wedding went exactly as planned, largely due to the thoroughness of the planning process with Joanne, who was excellent throughout, sending us minutes after each meeting and responding to emails promptly. It was also very useful and reassuring that Joanne was on duty during the event so knew exactly what was supposed to happen and when.

wow wow wow
Venue Service

I attended the wedding reception at the safari lodge on 2nd September, I did not really know what to expect but wow wow wow. you should be very proud of the venue and all of your staff. I have worked in the hospitality industry for more than 30 years and your staff are up the there with the very best. the DJ was just great he played all of the requests that he received even though some were not exactly great! the bar staff were under a lot of pressure as our family's know how to drink but they never flapped they just served as quickly as they could. The food was lovely, the catering and waiting staff had the right attitude and some had a fab sense of humour. I have saved the best until last my granddaughter was the little bridesmaid she was given a bracelet by the bride and groom which she was so excited to show off to myself and my husband and as she went to show us it fell off of her wrist and it went through the decking, as you can imagine she was so upset, then a lovely young man (sorry I did not get his name) came along litter picking he got the board off of the side of the decking and retrieved the bracelet. what a star. Please could you thank each and every one of your staff they made the day perfect for every one.

The day itself was just perfect
Venue Service

By Kate & Mark Halsall, on 12 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2017

I literally cannot recommend the Safari Lodge enough for a special event or wedding. Leading up to the big day Ashleigh was amazing and really helped with any questions/requests I had. The day itself was just perfect and all our family and friends were so impressed with the Lodge, location, food and the staff. In fact they are all asking to do it again next week!

The venue, staff and day was perfect, thank you.
Venue Service

By Carly & Matt, on 12 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2017

From the moment that we enquired about having our wedding reception at the Safari Lodge, everyone was so helpful. Joanne in particular was amazing from start to finish. The venue is a beautiful setting and the day could not have gone any better. The venue, staff and day was perfect, thank you.

Ben and I loved every moment
Venue Service

By Kay & Ben Tracy, on 12 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Apr 2017

Ourselves and our guests had an amazing time at the lodge, everyone was commenting on what a great venue it was and how great the food and drink was as well! Ben and I loved every moment and that came down to all your help and support so thank you ever so much for this. You made all the planning so much easier for us from the beginning! We will definitely be recommending yourselves to others as well. Please pass on our thanks to all the staff who were involved.

Staff could not do enough for us
Venue Service

By Katrina & Benjamin Jones, on 12 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Oct 2016

we cannot think of any way you could improve the service/food everything from the staff to the food/drink was such a high standard, staff could not do enough for us, guests at the wedding had nothing but praise about the event, top marks to Jo who ran everything from first contact till the next day when we collected our personnel items.

Jo and her team were Fab!
Venue Service

By Rachel & Howard Goldman, on 12 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Sep 2016

I can't think of anything I would have wanted done differently. Jo and her team were fab! Thank you!

The whole day from start to finish was incredible
Venue Service

By Nesil and Chris OShea, on 12 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2016

Joanne and Ashleigh were absolutely fantastic and a complete asset to Woburn Safari Lodge. The welcome we received was such high standard and the support from both of them leading up and on the event day was perfect. We never felt rushed or pressured - we always felt that we were continuously listened too. Joanne made us feel like we were the only couple she was planning a wedding with, what an amazing skill to have. The whole planning experience was fun and easy. We are already thinking of hiring the lodge for a 10 year wedding anniversary party as we want to re-live the day again! It was simply amazing.

I really cannot thank them all enough
Venue Service

By Alannah & Elliott Winch, on 12 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jul 2016

We thought that Joanne Hampton was brilliant in the lead up to our wedding… she was willing to meet up with us frequently and responded to all of our email enquiries really quickly. Joanne was on holiday for our wedding but Grace Dunham and Ashleigh James were excellent on the day and everything was perfect and just how we wanted it. All of the staff at the safari Lodge were attentive and helpful. We were also very grateful to them all for packing everything away for us to collect the next day… they even saved us two of our cupcakes! I really can’t thank them all enough!

We had a fantastic wedding at the Safari Lodge
Venue Service

By Penny & Greg Whelan, on 12 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2016

We had a fantastic wedding at the Safari Lodge and couldn’t have wished for anything more. Joanne was brilliant and so helpful and supportive in the lead up to the wedding, on the day and the day after, and I can honestly say that every single member of staff that worked with us over our event was brilliant and helpful. Thank you to them all. I would highly recommend the team and location to others for their future events. Thank you so much.
