It was everything we dreamed of!
We had the most amazing day. The weather was perfect, the events team were brilliant and the service in the Guthrie was really exceptional. It was everything we dreamed of. We had lots of compliments on the food, Hannah! Thank you both for all of your help in making the day what it was.

Your service has been the best I have ever seen...
I just wanted to say the biggest thank you to your staff who were just exceptional at my sisters wedding on Friday. Sherry was amazing in organising the day and Paul was beyond wonderful and couldn’t have anymore helpful, friendly and accommodating. It was a day we will all treasure for a lifetime so we thank you for being so fantastic and professional. Thank you again. Your service has been the best I have ever seen and I work in events myself, including wedding planning.

The team went above and beyond on the day...
Many thanks again to Nicola on the day, she most certainly put me at ease when she introduced herself to me on Friday morning, her team did an amazing job with looking after our day and trying to keep us to schedule, which certainly wasn't made easy with the monsoon downpour we had during our drinks reception. The team went above and beyond on the day. Our biggest surprise was when Nicola very kindly arranged with Jerome to allow us access to the Castle to have a few photos before the evening.

Nice to see everyone in such a wonderful setting!
We received a lot of positive feedback from the guests on the day - so many people came up to us to tell us how much fun they had. Thank you so much for all your help in organising and making sure the day went smoothly. Of course none of this would have been possible without the Hever team, so please pass on our thanks to everyone who was involved with the day.

Andy and I just wanted to send you a very big thank you for helping us organise our very special day. Our wedding day really was a dream come true for us and we couldn’t have done it without you. Everything was exactly as we imagined it would be and more. We would also like to extend a big thank you to the team who looked after us on the day. We would also like to thank all the staff at Hever who were involved in our wedding weekend. Everyone was so attentive and hard working.
