Grittleton House was the perfect venue for our August 2023 wedding. Not only is the house itself stunning, but the grounds are well kept and look beautiful at anytime of year. We felt like royalty being able to host our friends and family in a venue like Grittleton. But above all else, if we had to do our wedding over again, we would choose Grittleton House every time for the staff alone.
Emma, the wedding coordinator, is enough reason to have your wedding here as any. Even before we booked Grittleton, she was on hand to answer any questions, and was available whenever we needed her right up to the big day. She was always happy to help us, and be on hand to assist us when we had problems arise with other aspects of wedding planning. Her knowledge and experience meant that she was always able to advise us on the best options, all whilst making us feel like the only couple getting married at the venue. For someone like myself, who loves to plan but gets very easily stressed, Emma was the perfect coordinator, and I always felt so much more relaxed after speaking with her; there was no one else I would’ve trusted with our wedding as much as her.
Nelson was on hand the day of our wedding, and was a joy to have around. During the set up of the wedding, he knew the names of everyone there, and their relation to myself and my husband, without me being aware he was ever introduced to them. He was aware of what task everyone was currently completing, and what still needed to be done. I had planned this wedding for just shy of 2 years, and Nelson knew the vision better in 20 minutes than I did.
All of the wait staff from the wedding day and cleaning staff that we met the following morning were so polite and welcoming to this family home. Even when we were late checking out, they couldn’t have been kinder and more understanding.
The food is lovely and all allergies and dietary requirements were catered for incredibly well. The bedrooms in the stables were clean and comfortable, but the rooms in the main house were outstanding – beautifully decorated and full of little amenities that made it feel even more homely.
On the morning of the wedding, we had a couple of dramas, which could have easily dampened the mood of the whole day. One of which was handled incredibly well by the team, and we cannot thank them enough for their help and support; on the day, and after the wedding.
For us, the best part of Grittleton House were all the little touches we received as the newlywed couple. I wont detail them on here, as they weren’t mentioned to us throughout the whole process and were lovely surprise to find out about on the day, and I would hate to take that away from other couples. But it really did make us feel like the most important people in the world, and the whole team felt like extended family.
Thank you once again for having us,
Mr & Mrs Seymour
