Couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day!
Hi Emma, We firstly just wanted to say thank you again to yourself and all of the Cowley team who made our wedding day and stay so special this week - we honestly couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day! Looking through the photos we’ve seen so far, it was definitely the best decision to move out onto the terrace - the photos look amazing and we couldn’t have been happier with the table setups. Thank you again for all of your help.

We are so pleased we chose Cowley Manor
We had our wedding weekend at Cowley Manor and it was everything we had envisioned and so much more! The wedding organisation beforehand was really smooth led by Emma, who was very flexible and easy to work with. Our wedding had to be postponed for a year due to COVID and during those couple of years Emma was so kind and made the process as stress-free as could be! We had full confidence in Emma and she went above and beyond through the very end of our weekend. During the weekend, the whole team at Cowley, led by Emma, Liam, and Clare were so welcoming, accommodating and helpful and we felt right at home. Our guests raved about the service, as well as the rooms and grounds. The hotel and grounds are spectacular and make a perfect wedding venue - it helped keep the flowers and extra decor to a minimum and we had plentiful spots to choose from for amazing photos. We are so pleased we chose Cowley Manor as our venue and we look forward to returning to celebrate future wedding anniversaries! Thank you!

It was a lovely weekend
As a guest at thus wedding I just wanted to say how lovely all your staff were, all kindness polite helpful and smiling. It was so nice! I know covid has stretched the hospitality and have been to several places recently, which, through no fault of these venues, have had to rely on agency or new underpriced staff. It was such pleasure to have happy helpful confident staff serving. Congratulations it was a lovely weekend.

It was the most PERFECT weekend
Hi Emma, Oh my goodness, I'm not even sure where to begin with this email! We can't even begin to express how thankful we are for you and all the staff at Cowley Manor for making our wedding weekend go off without a hitch!! It was the most PERFECT weekend and we couldn't have done it without you. Our guests were amazed at how smoothly everything went and how amazing the service was - not only at the wedding but all weekend. I was SO nervous leading up to the day and on the day that something would happen, timing would be off, stage would be set up down by the pond or somewhere crazy, which is why I made that massive wedding document! But you were so calming and once you said "it's OK, everything's OK" I was finally able to relax. I realized that you totally had it all under control! You are SERIOUSLY good at your job!! Please extend our sincere thanks to all of the staff at Cowley (especially the bartenders.. I think our guests gave them a run for their money!!!)
