Our guests said "Best wedding of the year"
To start from the top, Symphonie was simply the best. From day one she kept us informed and painted the final day picture perfectly. The whole planning process was so smooth and stress-free. We even had a slight issue that caused a bit of a delay in things but Symphonie and Lauren were really accommodating and took so much stress off us and allowed us to enjoy the experience. On that day, we cannot thank Rachel enough. Rachel put the whole day together and cooperated with all the other vendors and just let us enjoy our day. All the guests felt so welcome and the entire atmosphere was heart-warming. Rachel was Lou's right-hand lady. The food was amazing, the lamb was succulent but the citrus macaron dessert was the star course. In total an absolutely unforgettable journey. Thank you to the Fanham's Hall family for making it perfect in our eyes. Love Lou and Jay

The best day of our lives!
When we first went to visit Fanhams Hall we knew immediately that we wanted to get married there! Every room was absolutely beautiful and the grounds were unreal. We loved that we could have every part of our wedding in a different room so the day flowed amazingly and there wasn’t any waiting around for our guests. Symphonie helped us to plan the most perfect wedding day and was always on hand to answer all of our questions. She recommended many suppliers that we used who really did make everything better than we could have asked for! Rachel ran our wedding day and did an outstanding job. Everything went so smoothly and not a single thing went wrong! She was always around to check we were okay and that everything was going to plan. We had so many compliments about Fanhams Hall and many of our guests have said it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been to! :) We couldn’t recommend Fanhams Hall enough! X

It wasn’t just “A” wedding, it was OUR wedding!
Fanhams Hall helped to organise the best day of our lives. Lauren made the whole wedding planning process so much more manageable and accessible, which is much appreciated when on a 6 month time scale! She never questioned why I needed to know certain pieces of information, she just absolutely delivered, with speed, every time! On our wedding tour, Lauren was so lovely and friendly (the complementary drinks were a big hit too). This is probably the reason my Mum wanted to come with us every time! Lauren provided us with recommended, high quality suppliers too. We literally couldn’t have asked anything more from our dressers, Coral and Blue, who went above and beyond, even dressing parts of the room that were not provided by them! All the staff at Fanhams Hall were so friendly, it really felt like everyone cared so much about US! We weren’t just ‘another wedding’. It was OUR wedding!! Rachel, our incredible function manager, said there’s only 2 dates in August without a wedding, but we honestly wouldn’t have known because everyone really went above and beyond at ALL times. When we returned from our church ceremony as husband and wife, we were greeted with our chosen welcome drinks and canapés - we honestly felt like we were living a Hollywood, celebrity dream. Even the reception staff were incredible! We’ve left a couple of things in the rooms too and it’s been a very efficient process to get them back. My husband and I (eeek, husband!) said it was a shame we wouldn’t see Lauren on the wedding day as she’d been such a huge part of our wedding planning journey, but it was absolutely lovely for her to take time out of her day to come and say hi! Lauren has been a dream and we’ll definitely be booking an anniversary stay for next year! We’ve had SO many complements about Fanhams Hall as a venue too. Everyone thought it was a dreamy wedding venue, the best they’ve ever been to! When the guests entered the library after the church, they stayed there being greeted by the slide show of photos, live music, love letters, drinks…they weren’t able to go outside as it was raining slightly and chill. This wasn’t what we’d planned, but this worked out PERFECTLY as guests were able to sign the guest book and look at the displays too! During the speeches the sun started shining through and during the room turnaround everyone was outside and my dress was glistening in the sunshine. IT WAS HONESTLY PERFECT! Some people just stayed outside until midnight!!! The beer pong was so much fun too. I could honestly write the longest comment about how perfect everything was! Thank you so much, Fanhams Hall for the best day of our lives! Mr & Mrs Newton

Dream venue for your wedding
Fanhams Hall is a great wedding venue with really big grounds that look amazing, including a rose garden and Japanese garden. We really loved the Long Gallery. It’s so spacious and beautiful, a perfect place for the wedding ceremony. The team at Fanhams were really helpful during our wedding planning, given the amount of questions we asked them. The food there is also really good. We had the menu tasting a few months prior and were able to customise some of the dishes to suit us. They were very helpful throughout the wedding day itself, guiding our guests around and helping us with the schedule. We highly reccomend Fanhams Hall and are looking forward to visiting again on our anniversary.
Response from the venue

Fanhams Hall saved our wedding
We had originally planned to get married a another venue, however that fell through with only one month to go before the wedding. However, it turned out to be a very fortuitous disaster because by some miracle Fanhams Hall had the same date available, and from then on everything was smooth sailing. It ended with the most wonderful wedding day, without a doubt better than the day we had originally planned. Our contact Symphonie was excellent, very friendly and efficient, organising all the details of our day, handling the transfer of guests rooms from the old venue and generally making the whole process of organising a wedding in a month seem effortless. The venue itself is lovely, the grounds are stunning, a photographer's dream, and the hotel itself is comfortable and welcoming. We particularly wanted a venue with plenty of rooms for our guests to stay over and Fanhams offered that. We also wanted some outdoor space and the gardens more than provide this. The wedding day was brilliant, we had the best day and our guests all seemed to have a fantastic time too. The reception staff, waiting staff and bar staff were all efficient, friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, our function manager on the day made sure everything ran smoothly and we always knew where we needed to be and what was happening next. The Great Hall, where most of the wedding was held, looked beautiful. Fanhams Hall saved our wedding, can't recommend them highly enough.
Response from the venue
What an amazing story to share! We are felt so honored to have been able to come in and save the day for you both! You two were an absolute pleasure to work with and we loved being apart of such a beautiful day for a genuinely beautiful couple! x
