It's really one of a kind
We got married on 2nd September at Goodnestone Park and we couldn't have imagined it to go any better. We felt so welcome and at ease from the moment we had our tour. Ronnie really is the essence of hospitality. The house and the grounds really are stunning and with the help of the Wedding dolls it was just effortless. For planning an event like a wedding that is often stressful the team at Goodnestone made it feel fun, exciting and relaxed. The orangery is incredible! It's really one of a kind

Goodnestone Park is incredible
We had the most perfect day The grounds are absolutely stunning. The house is a perfect venue to enjoy the weekend with loved ones and to get ready. There are multiple options on ceremony location and the Orangery is beautiful. The venue was incredible, but made all the more special by the fantastic service we received across the weekend. We couldn’t have wished for anymore!

A stunning venue with excellent facilities and the best suppliers
We're working with Goodnestone House, and The Wedding Dolls on many occasions now - and it's an absolute pleasure every time. The venue is stunning, and their new Orangery is everything a couple could want.

I’d give it six stars if I could.
INCREDIBLE!! I was a groomsman at a wedding here in May, and it is quite simply the perfect venue for a quintessential English wedding. I’d give it six stars if I could. The interior of the house has recently been refurbished to an incredibly high standard - essentially a 5* luxury boutique hotel, but it’s all yours. The grounds are breathtaking. It’s English countryside at its best. And the newly built orangery (which is where the wedding dinner is held) is a perfect addition.

A stunning venue with amazing staff!
Wonderful Wishes loved providing 1:1 Wedding Childcare for one of the bridal party's little boys for the full day and night at Goodnestone Park. This meant everyone could relax and enjoy the beautiful day at the even more gorgeous venue! The stunning venue meant we could be close by but kept out of sight and keep the parents updated about the little one throughout the day. The rooms to stay in have a real touch of luxury! The Wedding Dolls coordinated everything perfectly and everything ran so smoothly. We were greeted on arrival in the gorgeous grounds and the events team on sight were so friendly and communicated so well, it was a real pleasure to work together. I can't think of a more picturesque venue and what beautiful backdrops for photographs too! The venue was brought to life by the Wedding Dolls who dressed it to perfection! The bar manager was so friendly and attentive too! We cannot wait to hopefully come back to this incredible venue soon!

The grounds are picture perfect
We got married at Goodnestone Park in April 2023. The venue was everything we wanted - we knew from the first visit that it was the one and it did not disappoint. Ronnie (house manager) was so welcoming and made us feel like it was our own home for the weekend, the grounds were picture perfect and gave us the perfect back drop for all our photos and The Wedding Dolls were incredible too!!
