Fantastic Day!
Venue Service

By Alison, on 11 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Mar 2018

We have just returned from a break away after the wedding which was great to just relax & reflect on the lovely day! We were on a high after it all & now it seems strange being home with it all over. Looking forward to seeing all the photos now!! The day was just fantastic it all went so well & everyone we have spoken to have commented on how much they enjoyed it all. The weather didn’t really spoil anything because Alicia & Ryan got the photos they wanted I think and they do indeed look amazing & the video!! It would have been fab to use the garden more for other photos but it was fine! Many thanks for helping to make it a day to remember & the venue was just wonderful along with the farmhouse which is just amazing & we had such a great time with family & friends there. It made everything so much easier to be in one place on the morning of the wedding & so much more room than at home! It meant we could get some lovely photos in the beautiful farmhouse on the morning! Thanks again to you & Lucy & all the staff. Everyone was very helpful & thanks for all your help before & on the day itself! So many comments about the Hall & how nice it was!

The perfect wedding weekend
Venue Service

By Amy and Charles, on 03 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Sep 2017

We got married at Worton Hall this past weekend and it was perfect! The event was organised brilliantly by Catherine and her team and everything went to plan! We had the best day ever and felt thoroughly looked after. The grounds are beautiful and were the perfect backdrop for our photos. The barn was able to be decorated as we wanted and held all our guests easily with more than enough space for a band and to dance the night away. The whole bridal party could also stay on site which meant we made a fantastic weekend out of it! If you’re looking for an amazing wedding venue, this is it! Thank you for the most amazing day :)

By Danny & Lisa Underhill, on 26 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2016

There aren't enough words to truly describe how incredible our wedding day was. Catherine, Steph and the team worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail of our special day went smoothly leaving us to enjoy every moment. The venue allowed us the flexibility to tailor the day to our taste and needs. The onsite accommodation is breathtakingly stunning and allowed our special day to become special weekend. Thank you Worton Hall and staff for everything you have done. ****HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE****

Great location, flexibility and service
Venue Service

By Stuart & Joanna, on 03 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 16 Jul 2016

Several things attracted us to Worton Hall during our original search for the perfect wedding venue: its flexibility to allow us to shape the day as we wanted (Hannah saying, "we will try and make almost anything happen, so long as it doesn't involve naked flames or fire" sticks in our memory and was true), the beauty of the grounds (including the pagoda area where we were able to be married out of doors) and the purpose built hall, and how personable and helpful the staff were. The fact that it was possible to also rent the fantastic "Farmhouse" accommodation for around two dozen guests to stay onsite the nights before and of our special day was amazing too. The staff were fantastic on the day, beavering away to make everything go seamlessly for us and without stress. We are deeply grateful to Catherine, Hannah and the team for making everything go so superbly.

We're so pleased everything went perfectly for your special day which was truly an absolute pleasure to host. Due to your hard work and well laid plans Worton Hall and the Pagoda on the Green looked stunning decked out in your chosen flower displays and decorations. We wish you both all the happiness for your future together. From all the team at Worton Hall.

By Mr & Mrs Stiff, on 07 Apr 2016

?We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Worton Hall in October 2015. Catherine, Hannah and the team were absolutely fantastic in helping us make a day to remember. All the ideas we had were welcomed and embraced! Hannah happily (and quietly!) converted the Gallery from a wedding ceremony to a silent disco area during our wedding breakfast, whilst Catherine took control of our multiple musical requests and ensured our evening lighting was suitable for a party (multi-coloured uplighting!) The venue itself was fantastic, as we’ve been to many weddings before where it’s felt like you’re constantly being shuffled into another room whilst the main room is being set up for the ceremony/wedding breakfast/disco. With Worton Hall being one large room, it meant that the whole congregation were together all night (instead of hiding in separate rooms/bars like at other venues) which made it feel intimate, yet it wasn’t crowded at all. The acoustics of the rooms were great too, as we still found that there were quieter areas, mainly around the bar, where people could have a chat and catch up whilst music was playing on the dance floor. The service, coupled with the beautiful hall and surroundings really made our day unforgettable. We’ve had so many guests says what an amazing venue Worton Hall was. We feel very lucky to have found a venue that was so beautiful (despite the rain outside – perfect for an autumn wedding!) with gorgeous cottages to stay onsite, meaning our wedding was a weekend event rather than just one day and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking to get married!

I wish I could do it all again
Venue Service

By Nevers, on 23 Dec 2014

"From the moment Karl and I viewed the Worton Hall we knew this was the one. Even though at the time we saw the Barn it was not completed we were amazed by the vision that Bev Harris wanted to achieve. From start to finish the planning of the wedding was a joy, not only was our needs catered for but I was given practical advice, it really makes a difference when someone is enthusiastic about your big day too. I personally, cannot compliment Bev for helping me create my dream wedding. Worton Hall was able to create my rustic country theme. All of our guest have said how wonderful the venue was. Set in an remote location surrounded by stunning views I had the pleasure of spending two nights at Honey Suckle Cottage. It was perfect for the night before the wedding to spend the time with my bridesmaids and the night of the wedding with my husband. Thank you again Worton Park Weddings, I wish I could do it all again!"Mr and Mrs Nevers. 6th September 2014."

Could not have asked for a better venue
Venue Service

By Greenwood, on 23 Dec 2014

We could not have asked for a better venue. Bev was incredibly helpful and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. She was always there if we needed anything and sorted everything out for us from the beautiful pagoda to the accommodation to the music to the catering. Both of our families stayed in Rectory Farm and Honeysuckle Cottage and couldn't have asked for more in terms of comfort and style: it was perfect. Thank you for making our day exactly as we had hoped it would be.

Beautiful setting and special memories!
Venue Service

By Clare and Rob Huggard, 7th September, 2013, on 30 Sep 2013

Thank you so much to Bev and all of the team at Worton Park Weddings for making our wedding day so special and personal. Right from the outset, the team took time to listen to our ideas, allowed family members to visit the venue muliple times and gave us the flexibility with catering and drink options that we were after. The venue was simply stunning on the day. The additional bonus of the cottages on site enabled us to spend time with family and friends for the whole weekend rather than the day alone and so many guests commented on the beautiful setting. We can't thank you enough and will always have special memories of our day at Worton Park.

The ultimate English Garden style wedding!
Venue Service

By Kiki DrakeBrockman, on 15 Aug 2013

James and Kiki’s Wedding 22 June 2013 From the moment we pulled up in the beautiful tree - lined drive leading up to Worton Park for our first visit , we could already sense that we had found that picturesque country side venue we had been looking for to host our Oxfordshire wedding in June 2013. Worton Park really is the most stunning location; the buildings are made of gorgeous Cotswolds stone, the grounds are impeccably kept, there is even a field of horses, bunnies in the gardens and bir ds twittering away in the trees! It really couldn’t be a prettier or more romantic setting for the ultimate English Garden - style wedding! We hired three cottages in the grounds for the weekend of our wedding; The Old Rectory, The Brid al Cottage (Honeysuckle) and the Corner Cottage, and piled about 20 of our friends into them. They all loved being able to stay on - site to hang out with us before the wedding, then having only a short stumble back to bed after the wedding party, plus a laz y Sunday lounging about after the wedding. The fact we had our friends staying with us for the whole weekend meant we were able to hang out with everyone for longer, which just made the experience all the more special and memorable (although the memories p ast the wedding breakfast are somewhat fuzzier!) The whole team introduced themselves to us as they were setting up for our big day, so the service is incredibly personable and frie ndly. We are incredibly grateful and truly thankful to everyone, especially Bev. We had guests flying in from all over the world, including the US, Australia, Scandinavia and more. On the day itself every single guest commented on how beautiful the venue and the grounds are . We simply cannot thank Bev and everyone at Worton Park for helping us to have the most special, incredible day at their venue. If we could do it all over again we would pick Worton Park every time. We had the wedding of our dreams and we’re sure any one who books t here will do too!

A Perfect Day!
Venue Service

By Jane and Phil Copley, on 26 Apr 2013

We would like to thank the team at Worton Park for their contribution to making Becca and Jamie's day such a wonderful experience. From our first meeting with Bev some months back, right up to the Reception, we have been impressed with all the help and assistance she has given and the flexibility of the arrangements. Nothing has been too much trouble. Everything came together successfully and the Blue Room with the Conservatory was ideal for our needs. We have nothing but praise for the whole event and also for the caterers, Worton Thyme. We had booked Honeysuckle Cottage for the weekend for our selves and friends which made it so convenient and we were able to enjoy a relaxing day afterwards. Thanks to all for your part in making the whole day such a memorable occasion.

Our wedding day was the best day of our lives!
Venue Service

By Tapashya Murali, on 02 Apr 2013

"We would like to sincerely thank the team at Worton Park for everything you did to make our wedding the best day of our lives! You were professional, but very personable when dealing with our requests and we appreciate every detail! Thank you for your encouragement and support through the entire process from the early planning stages all the way through to execution on the day. You worked well with our caterers and made sure that there were no delays/glitches on the day. Special thanks to Beverley for making my life so easy during the planning stages by giving me the right contacts and direction. The Venue was perfect for our needs. We were able to have the wedding we visioned at a reasonable cost that we could afford. The cottages adjacent to the venue were both cosy and convenient to accommodate our guests for the weekend. Our guests had a fantastic time at the cottages. We will certainly recommend your service to anyone we know who is in need of a wedding venue. With thanks and best wishes Tapashya & Kumar"
