You're absolutely fabulous at what you do!
We had our dream wedding at Rockbeare Manor on Thursday and we wanted to send a huge thank you to each and everyone of you, for making our day so stress free and perfect. Cameron, you were incredible, your professionalism and talent shone on the day. So many of our guests gave compliments to you personally and really sang your praises. You talked us through everything, what was happening next and what we needed to do. Your organisation was impeccable. You really put our minds at ease and really looked after us. You're absolutely fabulous at what you do and we would recommend you to anyone!! Thank you to you all at Rockbeare Manor for an incredible day.

We had the most incredible day imaginable.
We had our wedding on the 2nd April 2022. We had the most incredible day. Helen, our wedding coordinator was amazing, we dealt with her from the start and she was there on the day. Having the same person throughout the wedding planning and on the big day made a massive difference as she really knew how we wanted everything. Helen and her team couldn’t have done anymore for us, always making sure we had drinks, and making sure everything ran on time and that we were happy with everything. The day was amazing and was everything we dreamed off and more. It ran so smoothly with no glitches. It was the perfect day and that’s thanks to Helen and the teams professionalism and service. Our guests have been telling us how smooth the day went and that it was the perfect venue. The food was amazing too, superbly served. The accommodation was beautiful too, spacious and luxurious, wish we could have stayed longer. We can’t fault anything. Wish we could do it all again.

Our wedding could only be described as perfection.
Our wedding was what could only be described as perfection, the whole process (which thanks to COVID was a lot longer than initially planned) was seamless. Helen and the team went above and far far beyond to ensure that we had the wedding of our dreams, nothing was too much to ask and all our needs were catered too. The service and food was impeccable and we honestly cannot thank all of you enough, thank you for truly giving us the day that only dreams are made of, thank you all so much 🖤

Beautiful venue, quality food and amazing team
We had our wedding day just over a month ago on 25th March and wanted to send a huge thank you to Davy, Anna, Aimée and all and the fantastic team at Rockbeare, not only for the day itself, but also the long run up since booking back in 2019. The communication has been great, we are so thankful for how everything has been handled with the postponements after what must have been a very difficult time in the hospitality industry. We could not have wished for a better day and feel so lucky to have had the first outdoor ceremony of the year. We had so many compliments from our guests about the beautiful venue, the quality of the food, the slick running of the day and attentive nature of the staff. Thank you once again. Best wishes, George and Phuong Elsworth

We couldn't fault a thing!
We got married at Rockbeare yesterday (!) and would highly recommend. From start to finish,the staff were amazing (especially during these uncertain Covid times) and made the day flow seamlessly. The Manor is beautiful and many of our guests complimented how lovely it was. The food was also amazing, we could not fault anything. Thank you so much to the whole team but a special shout out to Anna who was our coordinator on the day and Helen who helped us throughout (amidst all the Covid chaos). Thank you!

We cannot praise you highly enough
We wish to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our daughter's wedding such a special day. You and your staff were excellent - we cannot praise you highly enough. All the arrangements went off without a hitch and were exactly what we had been hoping for. The food was superb, delicious and beautifully served. The accommodations were fantastic - luxurious and spacious (we wished we could have stayed longer!), and the rooms used for the wedding and reception were exceptional. All of our guests commented that it was the best wedding, and the best venue they had been to, and we echo those sentiments - we simply cannot think how the day could have been improved. So, once again, thank you - you have our eternal gratitude.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It really is almost impossible to answer - every wedding is wonderful! The bond we form with the Brides and Grooms is really unique which makes it all the more special on the day. The very first wedding we ever did, in August 2016 was amazing though. It went so smoothly, without a hitch and it was a very memorable moment.

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

Make sure that your photographer comes recommended (your venue will always be able to help with this), and if budget allows, hire a videographer too. These will be the two things that will mean that you will be able to look back and relive your wedding day over and over. And, trust your suppliers. They are the experts and will be the ones that will make your wedding run like a dream.

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

It's the personal details that make each and every wedding so memorable. One of my favourites was when the Bride and Groom (who had got engaged on a llama treck and generally loved the gentle animals) invited two llamas along for the group photos during the drinks reception. They had pretty floral hoops around their necks and it was certainly a talking point that day!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Magical, Immaculate, Welcoming, Luxurious, Historic

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

You can't beat a photo at the front of Rockbeare Manor. Our Grade I listed house is so pretty - and it looks almost like something out of a Jane Austin period drama - it really is the perfect photo backdrop. But, I also love a photo of the newlyweds along our driveway, especially in Autumn - the colours are amazing!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Guests have included Tom Daley & Joss Stone.

What’s your favourite canapé?

It's hard to choose but my favourite two would be the 'fillet of beef pan-fried in Dijon cream, on crostini' and also 'sesame halloumi with chilli jam' which is a really great vegetarian option.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Chocolate! Always. Our chefs make the most wonderful chocolate brownie which is very hard to resist.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Rockbeare Manor is special in many ways - but the Manor House itself is so striking and instantly recognisable. It looks like something out of a period drama - picture perfect and the most stunning of backdrops for a wedding.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The team! They are amazing, and will go above and beyond for our Brides and Grooms. The level of service they provide is second to none.
