Thanks for a great wedding day
Organising a wedding can be stressful at the best of times. Organising a wedding during a pandemic could have been a nightmare. We originally booked our wedding at Fanhams Hall last year for over 130 guests. When the impact of the pandemic became clear and many horror stories about couples being refused refunds were frequently in the news, our wedding coordinator Symphonie and the team at Fanhams dealt with the rapid changing situation painlessly, reassuring us how we would like to proceed would be our choice. We did decide to go ahead with 30 people which was soon after reduced to 15 but again this was dealt with without any issues. Although we were expecting the day not to be what we originally hoped for, the actual day was way beyond our expectations. James our day manager worked hard to meet all our requests but further than that was even suggesting other things he could help with to make the day even more special for us. As it turned out, he had already been working with our bridesmaids to organise some surprises for us during the day. We really appreciate the hard work of Symphonie and James and all the team at Fanhams Hall for helping us have a magical wedding day in very difficult circumstances.

If Carlsberg did weddings
If Carlsberg did weddings they would do it Fanhams Hall !! Had such an amazing day. From start to finish the hotel couldn't do enough for us and they both made us feel so special. Symphonie was so lovely in the build up to the wedding and ensured no stone was left unturned. On the day the whole event ran like clock work. The beer, the food, the grounds, in fact everything was so good. Special mention has to go out to James, who the day before and on the day worked ridiculous hours to ensure we had the most incredible day. He was amazing and we cannot thank him enough. Thank you to all the staff at Fanhams and Merry Xmas!! Melissa and Chad.
