A massive thank you to you and the whole team
Hello Sophie, I cannot thank you enough for the most perfect day EVER! It was completely stress free for us and everything ran so smoothly thanks to your planning and the professionalism from the team on the day. Louis was also fantastic and a lot of our guests commented on how brilliant he handled everything, also how brilliant the service was on the day. A massive thank you to you and the whole team for making our day so magical and perfect!

They're still talking about it today!
Hi Sophie! All the guests, family and friends throughly enjoyed our wedding day. They're still talking about it today!. We have some truly beautiful memories, gifts, keepsakes and photographs of our special day. Time to now change and get used to my new surname 🙂 We both wanted to extend our thanks to you for a wonderful job you have done for us, supporting us throughout the process of organisation and just being there to hand at any point during the last year and half. You are very good at your job and made us feel welcomed and relaxed; from the planning right through to the big day, so we wanted to say a huge thanks! We'd also like to extend this out to your team, Louis Cool on the day was an absolute gem! We couldn't have asked for a better person to help us run the day. In fact, the whole team of wedding staff that handled thursday day/evening were brilliant. You have a fantastic team to work with. Thanks again Sophie - i'm sure we'll be in touch very soon to arrange a dinner, afternoon tea and 1 year anniversary stay with you in due course. Thanks from everyone

The wedding day was absolutely perfect!
Hi Sophie, The wedding day was absolutely perfect! Thank you so much to yourself and Lewis for helping the day to run so smoothly. We were so glad Lewis was there to tell us where to go/what to do as we didn’t have a clue! It really helped reassure us, especially the night before when we were particularly nervous about how the day would run. The little things we had perhaps not thought about that Lewis covered were really appreciated, even the smallest things such as moving our bags from the bridal suite to the rooms we were staying in that evening! There were absolutely no hiccups at all throughout the day, all of the staff were so efficient and attentive and the food was so tasty! Safe to say I don’t think there was much left after both the sit down meal and after the hog roast in the evening! We couldn’t have asked for a better venue, when we came to visit for the first time we knew instantly that it was the one. Everywhere was kept so clean and tidy and the rooms are just beautiful. The guests particularly appreciated the TVs in the bathrooms whilst they had a soak in the bath! A massive thank you again from the both of us to all of you at Lainston House, we would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to get married or just for a nice night away!

Honestly it was an incredible day
Please pass on our thanks to all the team that worked on Saturday 4th June for Louisa and Connor's wedding. The day exceeded our hopes and expectations. Louis Cool was brilliant and very calming, as was his team. They were discreetly attentive and efficient and worked incredibly hard. The weather behaved when it needed to and Lainston looked fabulous and the whole day just flowed. The bar staff in the evening were very efficient and nothing was too much trouble. Honestly it was an incredible day at a beautiful venue with a fabulous team! Louisa and Connor didn't stop smiling the whole day. Many thanks from the parents of the bride who are still clearly on a wedding high!

Lainston is a very special venue
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything last weekend. We can’t believe it’s over already, but it was absolutely flawless and that’s down to all the excellent support and organising on your part, so thank you. The team were absolutely fantastic - the service was impeccable all the way through. Our guests were commenting on the flow of dinner service (particularly the speed with which the glasses were being topped up), and they were excellent fun as the night progressed too. The conga line around the hotel is something we will remember for all of time I think… A special thank you to Louis Cool . He was outstanding, and kept Tobias and I calm and collected all the way through. His flower arranging on the cake was also excellent! The day wouldn’t have gone the way it did without him, he’s very talented at what he does and we’re hugely grateful. Once again, thank you from us and all our guests. Lainston is a very special venue, you should all be proud of what you provide there, and we’ll look forward to another stay very soon. All the very best, Imogen & Tobias

All of our guests were blown away by the venue
Good evening the amazing Sophie! We have been trying to find to words to thank you and your team but no words will ever be enough! You were incredible from start to finish. And then the wonderful Vinchenso (sorry on the spelling!) was a superhero on the day. The entire team were just exceptional and all of our guests were blown away by the venue and staff. We will most definitely be back soon. Thanks again, Hannah and Jamie

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have seen all sorts here at Lainston House, from Grooms arriving by Helicopter to fairground dodgems and carrousel's on the front oval!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

We will have loads to share with you along the way, but one I regularly give to our couples, is to start table plans as soon as possible, that way it doesn't become a stressful task later on and you can plan your tables and how many centre pieces you will need early on.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We once had a couple whose table themes were their favourite books, they had the book on each table and made confetti made from the pages from those books, such great attention to detail.
