We genuinely couldn’t have picked a better venue or team of staff and we feel extremely lucky to have got married here
We couldn’t have picked a better venue. Our wedding was changed 4 times over the course of a year and every time Salomons were so accommodating and there to support us every step of the way. They replied to emails promptly and never made us feel like we were asking too many questions. The grounds are absolutely stunning and so is the inside. We were lucky enough to get married outside and then have our wedding breakfast and reception in the Science Theatre and it really was just beautiful with incredible food and amazing staff that made you feel like the most important people in the world. They genuinely couldn’t have done more for us. Two people that really helped us were Courtney and Fiona. Courtney supported us through all of our changes and Fiona was our wedding coordinator. They are incredible women who went above and beyond for us both. Fiona did an excellent job before and more importantly on the day of the wedding and had everything under control, organising vendors, and decorations whilst still making us both feel calm and important. We genuinely couldn’t have picked a better venue or team of staff and we feel extremely lucky to have got married here. The photos show the stunning grounds, but also the smiles that didn’t leave our faces all day. Thank you Salomons!

Wonderful wedding reception
This was just perfect for my cousin's wedding. The location is utterly beautiful, the grounds in keeping with nature and the house understatedly grand with intriguing and fine decor. What made the day so perfect though, was the impeccable service. Smiling, polite, moving seamlessly and inobtrusively amongst people and tables to see to guests every need. Observant, so that empty glasses, water and wine bottles were removed and replaced. Every request regarding dietary needs was prepared and catered for. I can say that the staff at Salomon's provide the most accommodating and relaxed service I have experienced.

Perfect wedding day
Had our wedding here on the last weekend of May. Brilliant day in all, unforgettable. House, grounds and views all stunning. Management before and during the day faultless - thank you Georgie and Vicki. Effortless management and coordination of many external suppliers. The flow of the day was managed really well. The catering manager was particularly good. Food was excellent, exceeded the tasting we had. These are our comments but had many similar comments from the guests.

The surroundings are beautiful and the staff really went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. Was visiting for a friend's wedding and it couldn't have been better facilitated. Would highly recommend.

Our Wedding
Just wanted to say thank you very much for what was a fantastically organised and a perfectly delivered wedding. Wedding ceremony room was beautiful, the wedding breakfast was delicious, and the evening function was brilliantly set-up and run. Above all the staff were brilliant, particular thanks to Christie, Jan, Nick and James, but have to say every staff member was fantastic. The accommodation is more than adequate, and is as advertised. The main house and grounds though are spectacular, Our wedding planner and suppliers played a significant part but we would highly recommend this venue.

Amazing venue, beautiful grounds, great accomodat
Staff at Salomons could not have been more friendly or professional, they went out of their way to make our wedding weekend stay the most amazing time , thank you to all the staff. The golf buggy trips to and from our rooms to the main house were such great fun. The food at our wedding breakfast was delicious and the buffet breakfast was fab. The staff were incredible, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back soon to stay and in the meantime will have our happy memories to cherish.
