Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Ellen Ford
I have always loved Weddings. My first taste in event planning was when I was working in the theatre industry, where I became fascinated by the stage management and set design. To me, a wedding is just like putting on a show and setting the stage for everyone to come together and share a magical day. Having now been in the wedding industry for over 10 years, my experience has given me an understanding of the intricacies of organising and producing a personalised and truly wonderful day.

Everything was absolutely amazing.....
Everything was absolutely amazing - the setup, the staff, the service, the food, even the weather! It was so lovely to just know everything was covered and sorted all the way through and no need for either of us to stress about the running of the day, it was just done.

You all made our day so special...
“Ellen, We just wanted to reach out to you and say that you all made our day so special and it ran so smoothly. Any changes we needed to make, you were very accommodating, and the wedding team in the evening were fantastic, especially Rebecca, who looked after us - we can't fault their service. Could you please pass on our gratitude to the team and thankyou for everything you did leading up to the day!!"

I always felt like the venue were looking after us
“I always felt like the venue were looking after us. We wanted a military wedding but we also wanted to make sure the venue knew what that would look like and I felt so confident that they knew how to get this right.”

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

My favourite wedding was held in November - the whole room, setup, décor and most importantly the atmosphere was amazing. The couple were so lovely, and I really enjoyed being a part of the build up to their big day and helping them plan the perfect wedding. They had a very rustic approach with a local live band and a few fun games along the way for their guests, one being the wheel of misfortune! The wedding was all about having fun and that they certainly did.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Actually I have 5! 1. Stay calm. 2. Find your suppliers early. The good ones book up quick! 3. Spend time doing your research to find what you really want – put together a Pinterest board I promise it will help more than you think. 4. Surround yourself with loving and helpful people to assist you. 5. Enjoy the process – the day comes around so quickly so enjoy every second of it!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Each guest received a handwritten note with a memory and photo tied to slate hearts - just gorgeous!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Elegant, picturesque, friendly, scenic, remote.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are so many beautiful locations around Bowood whatever the time of year. I love the bridge down by Queenwood. The large pond there is stunning for photos, especially with the cottage in the background.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

No weddings just yet, but several have held social events or visited for an afternoon tea!

What’s your favourite canapé?

I think it has to be the Smoked Salmon & Crème Fraîche Blinis- delicious!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

We say why wait until midnight? Our evening wedding celebration catering options are pretty tasty. In between some serious dancing and another Prosecco, you can enjoy fresh, made to order pizzas, nachos, mini fish & chips, assorted sandwiches & fries, sliders & assorted wraps or a traditional finger buffet..... you name it and our chef can make it!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

My personal favourite is our private terrace, with the picturesque views of parkland and our resident wildlife!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our amazing team who work so hard to deliver the wedding of your dreams!
