Ivana and her team were amazing. They worked so hard to make our wedding extra special. The venue itself is superb, the staff friendly and so helpful. The food was fantastic - we had so many compliments from our guests. The planning is detailed and on the day, the organisation was flawless. Thank you. x

A beautiful old venue perfect for that special day. A family wedding was held there recently and the gardens provided a stunning backdrop for the photos. The meal was delicious and filling.

An absolutely wonderful venue for very special events! We simply couldn’t fault the attention to detail from the team, the seemless organisation (they arranged almost everything for us), fantastic food and drink (even ordering certain items on particular request). The venue is utterly stunning and the best thing is, because there are many rooms you can enjoy music and dancing or a quiet chat in the bar or entrance hall. Would highly recommend! Ivana and the team did a brilliant job for us… thank

A truly wonderful day and overall experience...
We had our little girls Christening at Rothamsted Manor and it was a truly a wonderful day and overall experience. The team at Rothamsted from start to finish were very accommodating and helped us organise this special day down to the very last detail. The guests loved the venue and I had so many of them mention how nice the staff were during the day. Highly highly recommend.

No question was too much...
I am just emailing you with feedback of our process booking the lovely Rothamsted Manor for our wedding venue on 20 May 2023. Rebecca was very informative, helpful and friendly throughout the whole process. No question was too much and we were even able to visit the Manor House a couple of times! Rebecca really made us feel comfortable and therefore made our decision much easier.

Words cannot express my gratitude and happiness...
I'd just like to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who made my engagement on Sunday such a dream! The whole team at Rothamsted Manor was honestly so lovely to work with, words cannot express my gratitude and happiness. From the beginning of the planning process Rebecca was amazing, so patient with all of the questions I had, so quick to reply and eager to help. Ivana was phenomenal and so detailed and thorough during the planning process, always suggesting brilliant ideas and being so accommodating and excited to help. Jez, the food and drinks were delicious! Especially the canapés were amazing, thank you so much for being so accommodating in finding me a HMC certified meat supplier, we really appreciated it so much. And finally thank you to everyone there on the day Ivana, Grace, Daria and all the other girls who helped out, the day could not have been possible without you. Each one of you went above and beyond, no ask was ever too big and you made us all feel so comfortable and looked after. My parents want to thank you all so much also. The venue is absolutely stunning and so many of our guests were asking about it and telling us how beautiful they found it. I hope you all managed to enjoy the day, thank you so much for having us and all of your kind sweet words on Sunday.
