An amazing day
Just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you for everything you did with getting the wedding organised. The day went really well and it was an amazing day. The venue looked stunning and the food was delicious. We said thanks to the staff already but can you please pass them on again as they were all absolutely brilliant the whole of yesterday. And extra special thanks to Chelsea who was honestly amazing and helpful and nothing fazed her and she sorted everything so quickly and with no issues. She was just brilliant. Thank you for everything.

Absolutely Amazing
The wedding coordinator, Carolyn, was absolutely brilliant before the wedding. She was helpful and responsive and happy to answer any query that was sent her way. On the day, all of the staff were absolutely fantastic. I don't think we could have asked for a better set of friendly and helpful staff. And the venue looked so amazing. I honestly can't recommend this place, and more importantly, the people, enough!

Amazing Weekend
Thank you so much to the Dower House for hosting our wedding and for helping to make it such an amazing weekend. The hotel could not have been more accommodating or flexible with us, especially as it’s been the longest wedding in the planning, having originally booked for 2020, moved it to 2021 and then 2022. Carolyn has been amazing throughout and her experience as a wedding planner filled us with confidence that everything would be perfect, and it was. Having exclusive use over two nights gave all our guests the chance to fully enjoy the hotel and grounds and everyone loved their bedrooms, the gardens, the amazing food and the friendly staff. Other special mentions have to go to Jed, Head Chef, who takes so much pride in the food he prepares and ensured that everything we ate was delicious. Jed, we look forward to hearing when you have been awarded your first rosette, as it is very much deserved. Then to Max who facilitated our first night (his gin bar design got everyone talking) and also our wedding day evening expertly: nothing was too much trouble to him and he did everything with flair and a big smile. The fireworks display, arranged through the hotel was awesome too. We will never forget our wedding celebrations at the Dower House. Best wishes to you all and we will be back!

Whole day went so perfectly
Just wanted to email to say thank you for everything you've done! You have been amazing and the whole day went so perfectly, it was even more than I had hoped for and I know a big part of that is down to all the little things that we didn't realise was happening behind the scenes! Thank you for all your organisation and hard work, we are so lucky that you came into the job when you did 😊 A huge shout out to Max too because he didn't stop all afternoon for us bless him, he went above and beyond for me when I needed 5 minutes on my own and nothing was too much trouble for him - he was so so good at his job! Everyone else at the dower were fab too. We fell in love with the dower house a few years ago but you guys really made it shine!

Absolutely perfect venue!
We had to postpone our wedding twice due to covid and the dower house made it as stress free as possible! We finally got married in April and we are so so pleased we chose the dower for our wedding, nothing is too much trouble for the staff and our day was even more magical than we could have hoped! They also catered for every single requirement and the food was delicious! If you'd like a stress free wedding then book the dower because our day was perfect 😊

Couldn't ask for anything more!!
We wouldn't choose anywhere else to have our wedding. The Dower House was the first venue in that we looked at and were blown away straight away. Carolyn from the first time we met was warm, welcoming, a great listener, excellent communication and understood what we were hoping to achieve for our big day. Through-out the planning Carolyn was responsive and always there to answer all questions that we had. On the big day, all the staff were exemplary! The day went so smoothly, we loved it!! We must mention the food....oh my ...the FOOD! Delish! We highly recommend the Dower House, its beautiful setting and wonderful team make it just the best day, we cant thank them enough!

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Having only joined the Dower House in August 2020, there's not many to pick from, but being able to move a couple's wedding from the 7th November to the 4th to squeeze it in before lockdown was fantastic for me, especially as it was my birthday on the 5th, so it was lovely to know we made that couple's special day able to go ahead with less than a week's notice of the change!!

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

Listen to the advice of others - but it is your day - do what makes you happy!

I love dogs, so seeing a a bride walk down the aisle with her Goldie was brilliant!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The folly - where our outdoor ceremonies take place. Although the stained glass window on the landing in the main building is also beautiful.

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

Not yet- but if George or Ryan ever want to stop by - that's fine with me.

What’s your favourite canapé?

hmmm...something with breaded brie and cranberry

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Bacon sarnie or a hog roast

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The outdoor ceremony Folly is pretty unique, as is that stained glass window in the main building.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our lovely new website which I worked on from November until it launched in January!!
