The whole Careys team were incredible
“Françoise, Janos and the whole Careys team were incredible from start to finish! They really took care of us and all of our guests so that we could completely relax and enjoy our special day. Nothing was too much trouble from them and we can’t thank them enough!”

The perfect wedding day at Careys Manor
Both myself and Adam had the perfect wedding day at Careys Manor. From the weather, the scenery, the food, the service – we could not have asked for anymore! A special thank you goes to Francoise who was at my beck and call for any questions and really helped us make the exact day we wanted.

On the day it just felt effortless ...
Françoise organised everything perfectly! On the day it just felt effortless, at least to us, I know the Careys Manor team were super hard at work behind the scenes. We were so well looked after by the whole team it felt like a dream. I have to apologise to Janos, the MC and Cambium Restaurant Manager, when we came up with our table names we didn’t want to number them 1 to 6 so we named every table Table Seven but in different languages spoken by our guests, so we had Tableau Sept, Mesa Siete, Tavola Sieben etc. Apparently this caused some confusion for the kitchen, organising the food to go out to 6 Table Sevens! As if organising the perfect wedding for us wasn’t enough, the team really did go above and beyond, we had a lot of our guests staying at the hotel or nearby so we booked breakfast for the 32 of us the next morning. Janos organised another of the function rooms for us as a private dining room for breakfast, so we got to say goodbye to all of our guests properly the next day and enjoy the fantastic breakfast. We didn’t request this, Janos surprised us by showing us the room they had set up before he handed over MC duties to the DJ. We were really impressed by this, they didn’t have to go to that trouble for us and it was the perfect way to round off the wedding.

All our guests loved the day.
"All our guests loved the day and felt really looked after at Careys Manor. We had an intimate outside ceremony for 30 and then around 20 more guests joined us to party the night away. Many said the day went so fast, as they were having so much fun! During my Dad's speech he pulled out a photo of when I was two years old and a Bridesmaid at my Auntie's wedding, also at Careys! He said I must have had my eye on the place since then! This made us all laugh and made us think it was meant to be here!"

We both loved the feel of Careys Manor
“We both loved the feel of Careys Manor when we had both visited prior to our search for a wedding venue in the New Forest. Once we were engaged we came back to the hotel for an appointment with Françoise who was so accommodating, talking us through the different wedding packages and answering all our questions. She gave us exactly the feel we wanted for our Special Day.”

It was the best day of our lives
“Organising a wedding during a worldwide pandemic has been a little stressful to say the least, especially as we had to cancel two of the wedding dates due to lockdown restrictions. However, the stress and heartache would have been a million times worse had it not been for the flexibility and support of all our wedding suppliers, including above all, Careys Manor and Françoise who were brilliant in providing regular updates and overseeing our ever changing plans. When we were finally wed, all the hardship was soon forgotten, with both Poppy and I unanimous on the fact it was the best day of our lives, due in large to the incredible wedding venue provided by Careys Manor. Thank You so much from the bottom of our hearts.”
