Ricky & Siobhan wedding
Ashridge House was amazing and the staff where fantastic lara was are wedding manager and she was fantastic. One down side was we paid £1500 for the evening food but when the guests asked where it was at the time I when and checked with the bar to find out it was put out already around the corner in the seating area in the bar to find out there was nothing there when I asked the bar staff it was not there they said it was but must of been taken back to the kitchen. When I emailed Ashridge after the wedding they said it was out and the Dj should of been told to let everyone know when I asked the dj that's a good friend of ours he said no one told him to let everyone know it was out. I related this information back to Ashridge and have not heard anything back about this so a waste of £1500 really and abit disposed as everything when so perfect.

We really felt the love!
Wow what a day, we had the best time and Sophie you were the most brilliant coordinator we could’ve asked for. Thanks for the very kind words too, we really felt the love last Sunday and everyone has still not stopped talking about it! Thanks so much for everything!

We would choose Ashridge 100 times over again!
"Addison and I wanted to thank you Rachel and your team once again for the most magical day! Even when planning the wedding and after having visited Ashridge multiple times I could not imagine that the actual day would turn out to be so much better than my wildest dreams. The organisation was perfect, and multiple guests commented on how smoothly all the transitions were as well as that no part of the wedding felt like too long or too short.
