Describe the best wedding that happened at Crondon Park?
Review from a Crondon Couple:
We picked Crondon Park as our wedding venue back in 2019. We came to an open day and instantly fell in love with the venue and we were due to marry in 2020. Sadly due to the covid pandemic we had to postpone our wedding. The staff were fantastic. The team would check in to make sure we were okay, provided all information we needed and was there to answer all questions even at the midst of a very difficult time.
We decided to postpone to Friday August 5th 2022. Everything ticked along perfectly all plans remained in place and a few months before our wedding day we were passed over to our front of house manager. We met with them to finalise all plans a few weeks before our day and she put our minds completely at ease. She was so easy to talk to and explained everything we needed to know. From that moment, to the day itself the team would respond to all emails we sent the very same day answering any last questions we had. Fast forward to our wedding day and all we can say is wow! Never have we met such an incredibly professional, helpful and cheerful group of staff. Every single person who was part of our day commented on how wonderful the staff on the day were. Our Front of House Manager made sure the day was the vision that we had and ensured everything ran smoothly and perfectly and for that we are incredibly grateful. The bar staff were just so lovely. They had our guests smiling and laughing and we’re just so cheerful. Not a person working that day made anything seem too much. They were all wonderful. We’d also like to thank all those staff behind the scenes for their hard work. The wedding food was the best wedding food we have ever had and the butternut squash soup got amazing reviews!! The evening barbecue was amazing too and our celiac guests were particularly amazed that they could eat everything. The chef running the barbecue at the time went out of his way to even offer to source gluten free rolls for one guest. It’s the little touches like those mentioned that make guests, comfortable, appreciative and touched. Not only did the staff on the day extend their hospitality to us but they did to our guests too. It’s clear to see why the venue wins so many awards as it is just simply stunning. It’s not always mentioned however, how fantastic the staff who work there are. We would like to take this opportunity to thank every single member of staff we have dealt with and in particular those who worked on our wedding day. No matter how small your role was, you all contributed to make sure our day was the absolute best it could be and really are a credit to the venue. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
