Martin and I had our wedding at The Cottonwood Boutique and it was absolutely perfect
Martin and I had our wedding at The Cottonwood Boutique and it was absolutely perfect. It was the best day of our lives. The food was lovely, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff were incredibly hard working and made sure our day was perfect - especially with the challenging day with it being airshow too. Just want to mention Paul and Slaw for all their help over the last few months. Thanks for making our day the best it could be!

Absolutely perfect, bespoke service
Helen our organiser was so welcoming and helpful. No request was too much. She ensured everything was organised and it all ran so, so smoothly. She was helped massively on the day by all the staff but especially Zolt who was there within a millisecond of us thinking we needed something. He was so flexible and just wanted us to have the best day. Nothing was too much trouble. He was super attentive without being oppressive. The venue was amazingly beautiful. The food and service impeccable. I absolutely cannot fault them. Best wedding ever. They even welcomed our alpacas!

Most memorable day of our lives
Helen, we cannot express our gratitude for the efforts and kindness that was put into our day on the 17th June. We were absolutely amazed by how attentive and accommodating you were to help us achieve our perfect intimate wedding reception. Despite it not be a big fat white wedding - you still made us feel important and enabled us to keep our own style and uniqueness, The layout was really wonderful. Our guests loved the food; they felt completely at home and comfortable within the surroundings of the hotel. We felt that we were well looked after and confident in your experience and attention to detail. We cannot thank you enough. We are so happy that we chose to spend one of the most memorable days in our lives at your venue, in your hands. Thank you x. Yasmin & Shaun June 2017
