We cannot fault your professionalism, your kindness, your efficiency & above all, your ability to keep an anxious bride calm, through planning & through the day! The actual Wedding itself was simply a fairytale dream come true!! It was absolutely everything I’d/we’d hoped for & more, I don’t think I’ve ever been so overwhelmed in my life but in the best way! Thank you with all my heart for giving me the bridal suite the night before, I literally fell to my knees put my hands together in prayer sign look up & said “thank you thank you thank you! It helped so so much being able to get us all ready with so much space!! The special touches of our cards, absolutely beautiful personalised dressing gowns which we will cherish forever! We cannot wait to come back to Ashdown for dinner as soon as we can! We feel like we’re at home when we park up & walk in! The most beautiful beautiful hotel with amazing staff, who wouldn’t want to return all the time? Thank you also for recommending Dear sweet David Blight, what an absolutely amazing man & fantastic Toastmaster!! He looked after me/us so so we’ll & cannot fault him! He will always be highly recommended by us!! Also for Vivienne (chair cover chic) What a beautiful job she did with our chairs & blossom trees etc, the room looked absolutely stunning!! Your team are amazing, so very very hard working, professional & have high standards & look amazing too!! Tanya I hope I have not missed anything out? So I’ll say just One HUGE THANK YOU for absolutely everything & we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us The wedding day of our dreams, & for making us a very very Happy couple!!

We want to thank you sincerely as we had the most wonderful day!
Well, where do we start! We want to thank you sincerely as we had the most wonderful day. Nothing about the day would we have changed. You and your staff really pulled out all the stops to make us feel very special and absolutely nothing was too much bother. To think that we would have the wedding of our dreams during a global pandemic was unimaginable yet you achieved it. Specifically we would really like to thank Iona. She is a real credit to the hotel; her attitude is flawless, she was able to sort out all of our questions and requests with ease, and she listened patiently to our many changes of opinion with decoration! She had fantastic attention to detail and I’m sure she was a large part of why the day went so well. We really respected the fact that throughout the whole wedding planning experience (rather longer than originally intended as it was!) we consistently saw the same hotel staff, all of whom remembered us with a smile and made us feel welcome. It was very reassuring to then see the same staff on our wedding day. Our guests have all commented on the food; nobody could fault it and all the tweaks we made from the menu tasting were all accommodated on the day. Neither me or Ryan managed to be seated for desert and so it was kept aside for us and re-served with cheese which was a lovely touch. I had made some very specific requests to the bar with respect to wine for my dad and that was remembered all evening too without prompt. We honestly could not fault the service. The venue itself was stunning, the guests were all blown away by the transition from downstairs to upstairs. We want to acknowledge your patience with our indecisiveness on the indoor/outdoor seating with respect to the weather and also accommodating the singer both inside or outside. Finally, the beautiful touch of the embroidered dressing gown gift in our suite was just wonderful. It really was a lovely surprise when we made it back to our suite after the day. Thank you very much again, and please do pass on our best wishes to all involved in our wonderful day.

THANK YOU - BRILLIANT 😀
Everything worked so well, from the Ceremony , to drinks on the lawn with the magnificent views, the wedding breakfast and the evening party. Many of the guests were extremely complimentary about the food and wine and Claire and I couldn’t have been more happy with the way Iona and her team ran the event. We would also like to pass on our thanks to Steve who was an excellent MC and certainly had the voice for it. It really helped with the smooth running of the day.
