The Wedding of our Dreams
Words can’t quite express the gratitude we have for the entire team at Cowdray. The COVID rules meant we could no longer host our 15-person wedding reception at home, and we benefitted from a last minute COVID cancellation at Cowdray. Guy and his team made the wedding of our dreams come together in just five weeks. The house and grounds are unbelievably beautiful with multiple Christmas trees and roaring fires in every room creating the perfect backdrop for a festive winter wedding. Jo took care of every little detail over the weekend and enabled us to have an incredible stay while feeling completely safe in these crazy times. We’re already trying to find an excuse to rent the house again!
