Thank you
We decided to have our Wedding at Ettington Park on Valentines Day 2020. From start to finish, we could not have chosen a better place for our celebration. Our day was superbly planned with help from Janet (sales and marketing manager) who became our wedding organiser. She was so helpful that we did not need to enlist the help of a wedding planner due to her considerate and knowledgeable expertise. We had a fantastic time planning and organising it with the team there. They even made our wedding cake for us and all of the food was delicious! On the day itself we could not have asked for a better team of staff to look after us and our guests. The whole day was immaculately executed by Cliff, the Wedding and Banqueting manager who kept everything running on time and ensured we had the best day ever. Each and every member of staff helping on the day showed outstanding customer service, were super friendly and super efficient, meaning we did not have to worry about a thing. Stand out members of staff were Sam on the bar, Daimon on the door (just to namecheck a couple as I cannot remember everyones name). Even the lone bar man at the end of the evening at 2am was still cheerful and smiling. Everyone said it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to and we put that down to choosing Ettington Park as our wedding venue. We knew it was going to be good, but we didn't know it was going to be that good. The whole experience surpassed all expectations.

We had a fantastic day
We wanted to thank everyone at Ettington for all your fantastic work and help throughout our wedding planning and day! We had a fantastic day and couldn't have picked a better place! All of our guests commented on how beautiful a spot Ettington was, with a lot of our guests calling it "the castle"! We fell in love with Ettington from the first moment we saw it and it was the most fantastic and breathtaking venue for our wedding reception, the architecture being so beautiful both inside and out that the rainy weather did not put a dampen on our day or our wedding photos, in fact it only complimented! (we'll forward on the photos as soon as we have them). The day ran very smoothly and all stresses were alleviated by the fantastic hospitality team, we wanted to especially thank Zoe who looked after us incredibly well and made us feel at ease throughout the day. The food was exquisite (honestly the best meal we've ever had)! We're just sorry it was over so soon! We are definately going to be coming back for our anniversaries in the years to come.

Thank you so much
We had an absolutely perfect day! Please pass on a huge thank you to Cliff and the team, they did such a brilliant job. All staff were fantastic and most guests commented on how great they were, as well as how beautiful the venue was. The whole day was perfect. Cliff calmed me on the morning with how in control and well informed he was - and subsequently, although I did not speak to him much as I was so busy, I can tell how important he was in the smooth running of the day. On the day itself, it was in no small part due to the professionalism of the staff and the smooth running of events that I was able to be very relaxed and really enjoy the day and take it all in. That is so important. Staff weren’t intrusive at any point but were always there for any requests or to make sure we were happy. The food was delicious - the main dinner, and breakfast both mornings. Everyone was wowed by the venue and the grounds, and we felt so lucky and special having the whole place to ourselves. Thank you so much to everyone for making it such a wonderful day!!

Really felt at home and part of the family
From the first time we visited Ettington Park Hotel we were made to feel incredibly welcome. We instantly knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding, not just by the grandeur of the buildings and the beautiful views but by the team being so passionate about their jobs, even the head chef proudly taking the time to explain his wedding tasters to every perspective couple visiting that day. It was great to meet Becky our wedding co-ordinator on Day 1 too, as we immediately could tell she would be super helpful and support us every step of the way, which she did. Becky was friendly and efficient and really easy to communicate with over the course of the wedding planning. She was very patient with us and went above and beyond to make our day so special. On our wedding day we really felt at home and part of the family with the whole team being as excited as we were for the wedding. Special thank you's to Cliff, Damien, Stephen and Thomas for all helping us settle in the day before the wedding and for really getting involved on the day. There are other staff that were great too but sadly I cant remember their names. We had the most wonderful day with nothing being too much trouble for the team at Ettington, thank you we will be forever grateful for this

A very special event
We would like to thank you and everyone at Ettington Park for a very memorable weekend. From the very first meeting with you to our final departure, it has been a pleasure planning and experiencing a very special event. I am sure you would be interested in the comments of our guests who came from all over the UK and Canada. Everyone was extremely complimentary about the hotel and its staff who responded in a positive manner to every query and request. We never had any doubt that our guests would be thrilled with the venue and that is born out by those who chose to book extra days in the hotel. With regards to the wedding itself, everything went just as we had planned. The food and service was excellent and can we particularly mention the beef main course and desert. While we did get the opportunity to briefly thank the chef, can you please pass on our compliments and the comments of many guests that the desert was the best chocolate dessert they had ever had! On a more personal note, can we single out Cliff and Damon. Cliff was the perfect event manager on the day, handling everyone of our requests and unforeseen things which popped up in a calm manner and with a smile on his face. Damon is a ball of energy, responding to every guest's needs with great enthusiasm. Once again, thank you for everything and we wish you well in the future. Regards Joel and Kelsey
