Dream wedding!
We got married here in June 2022. As soon as I walked into the beautiful conservatory I knew this was were we wanted to tie the knot! From 1st meeting all the way through organising all the details was so easy. Zoe was our coordinator and she made everything a breeze and helped us think of things we didn’t even know we needed to! The whole team at Audleys we’re so lovely and happy to help at any point. The wedding day went so smoothly I couldn’t quite believe it with no hiccups and everything was in place. I was anxious to leave things like control of the music and the confetti box with anyone but the bridal party but I ended up asking the staff to take care of it and this all went perfectly as well. I did not have to worry about a thing and all my guests mentioned how lovely the venue is and how perfect the day was. Can’t thank Audleys wood enough and we wish we could do it all again!

Audleys wood were amazing with everything! They listened to every idea and detail and made it exactly as we asked. Through emails, meetings and phone calls they were always o hand to help with any query or request. Wedding coordinating, toast master were a dream the day wouldn’t have gone so smoothly without them! We had the most beautiful day with memories to treasure for a life time.

What an Amazing Level of service by Audleys Wood
We got married at Audleys Wood Hotel in march, and the whole experience was terrific from start to finish. Neil's pre-wedding meetings were brilliant, and I would recommend Neil to anyone. He is a massive asset to the company. We were updated thoroughly with every step from the start of the booking, and any questions were always welcomed. My dad and I stayed the night before the wedding and were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked in. We also had the chance to view the beautiful garden pavilion on the day, and all of the team were communicated with to ensure our needs were fulfilled for our special day. On our wedding day, the staff welcomed and accommodated all of our wedding parties. Nothing was too much hassle. Everyone greeted us with a smile and asked if everything was going well. The food and drink were exceptional, with perfect portion sizes and catered for all. The rooms are so elegant and very spacious. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms are very well looked after. Overall I would highly recommend this venue and have done it already to friends who are in the search for their wedding venue.

The perfect day at the perfect venue
If there was an option for more than 5 stars I would select it. We knew when we booked our wedding in the summer of 2020 that COVID was not yet over but took the risk and it more than paid off! Fortunately for us we didn’t have to change our wedding date and there were no restrictions in place at the time. All the staff made the venue feel very welcoming, clean and safe each time we went there from the initial booking/viewing, right up to the day itself which was great as we were inviting elderly relatives and wanted them to enjoy the day but have peace of mind that they were safe too. Our wedding co-ordinator Zoe was fantastic from start to finish, she was really easy to speak to, always available to speak to when we needed and was full of great suggestions and ideas for us which really helped the day be as magical as it could be, 11/10 Audleys Wood is beautiful, tucked away in a lovely woodland area with lots of various types of trees of many colours. Due to time of year we had the full autumnal experience which has really made our photos stand out, all the grounds are lovely and great to take a stroll round at all times of year. The venue itself is something to behold, we had our ceremony in the conservatory room, with its tall peaked ceiling and floor to ceiling bay windows it was the perfect set up! It caters for many guests with lovely views of the grounds and woodland. We had the evening reception in the pavilion which again was set up amazingly and very spacious, we especially liked having the seating, dance floor and bar all in one room so everyone was together, there was plenty of space to have extras such as a sweet cart, photo booth, treat and hot chocolate table and more! The food here is second to none. We knew we were in for something good when we had our menu tasting, the variety of options is impressive, the presentation and taste of the food was flawless. We had over 70 day guests and all have said how good the food was, there was no waiting around and it didn’t feel like a production line either. To top it off the rooms here are lovely, even the smallest rooms are generously sized and all include breakfast as well. I cannot stress enough how lovely all the staff were. Even the after service was fantastic and my father accidentally left his shirt in the room and didn’t realise until he got home, spoke to Kai on reception who promptly arranged for it to be mailed back to him and it arrived next working day. If you’re looking for the perfect wedding at the perfect venue, I would highly recommend Zoe and her team at Audleys wood, they’ve been flawless throughout and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We will definitely go back for the food again and hope to attend future weddings here too!

The most amazing wedding venue!
We booked our wedding pre COVID in 2020, since then the staff and venue have been nothing short of amazing. After a change in coordinator we landed Charlotte who was so supportive and amazing throughout. She answered all my questions, nothing was ever too much trouble. The day went off without a hitch and I can honestly say not a thing went wrong. The entire guest list commented on the venue and how beautiful it was. Thank you so much for contributing to the best day.

The perfect wedding!
My husband and I booked Audley's Wood Hotel for our wedding. At the time, we had our wedding booked at another venue entirely and had been messed around a LOT. We started to panic and found Audley's Wood and could not be happier. From our first phone call with Neal to our wedding date, Audley's went above and beyond. Even just calling them felt like talking to an old friend. They were so excited for us and so friendly. We had just 7 weeks to put our entire wedding together with practically no previous planning due to poor communication with our previous venue. Audley's Wood was just a breath of fresh air. NOTHING was too much trouble. They were so quick to respond to emails and calls. We mostly dealt with Zoe (and Neal at the beginning) in terms of wedding planning and both of them were so knowledgeable. Having them on hand for opinions and advice was invaluable. We also spoke with Charlotte who was equally amazing. They made the entire process easy - which cannot be easy with JUST 7 weeks. The reception staff as well are an asset to Audley's Wood, both Caroline and Kai (and many others whose names are escaping us currently). Every time we left, I would say to my partner - 'I could just wrap them up in a bow and take them home with us'. I cannot stress the kindness we were shown at Audley's Wood enough. We were made to feel not only special but like family. Our dog was welcomed by all. One of our favourite memories of our wedding night is the staff coming over to fuss our dog who just lapped up every second of the attention. Our pup, Maya, was also maybe not the best behaved at certain points during the planning process however the staff at Audley's Wood were not only understanding and welcoming but actually helpful by bringing her little treats to help her socialisation (she is still a puppy). The food... omg, the food. We wanted a couple of options that were not on their sample menu and they were happy to accommodate us. We wanted scallops for starters as we are both obsessed with scallops. The staff asked us if we had any particular scallop dish in mind to which we replied, 'let your chef go crazy'. We have never experienced a scallop dish like the one set before us at our menu tasting and we are somewhat connoisseurs at this point. It feels like calling it a dish at all is disrespectful. It was art. Scallops with apple veloute (being honest, I have no idea what veloute even is but it was delicious) and apple gel (some crazy chemistry stuff is happening here and it is INSANE). It also came with tiny chunks of the crunchiest, sweetest apple you have ever tasted. It was perfectly balanced and the scallops were cooked to perfection. It must sound like I am going over the top but it was a spiritual experience and I'm an atheist. All of our meals were astonishing, but those scallops specifically deserve a special mention. On the day itself, Audley's were perfect. I know that Michael specifically did a lot for our wedding on the tech and operations side of things and he was just so helpful. He stayed rather late as well, kept us up to date on everything, announced us and events throughout the day with a beaming smile. The chefs and wait staff worked incredibly hard and pulled off such an amazing meal, all with smiling faces. The receptionists had nothing but compliments not just for us but all of our guests and every person at our wedding felt valued. The majority of our wedding guests had booked rooms too and all have noted on the cleanliness and comfort of their rooms. We cannot recommend Audley's Wood enough and even now, coming away from our honeymoon, after staying at 5 luxury hotels since being at Audley's, we can say that we preferred Audley's Wood to any of them and are already hoping to go back soon. We would live there if we could. Audley's Wood is not some stuffy, uptight 4* hotel. It was elegant, luxurious and refined while remaining welcoming, down to earth and perfect in every way.
