Surpassed Our Expectations
We would like to say a massive thank for everything you did leading upto and on our wedding day - everything was perfect! Everything on the day surpassed our expectations. A huge thank you to the chef for our fantastic food - particularly the evening buffet spread - we really enjoyed all the veggie options and our "doggy bag" was such a good idea for after the wedding

An Excellent Day
"Firstly I would like to say massive thank you to your and your team for making our day soo fantastic. We enjoyed every minute of the day and cannot fault a thing. We would highly recommend the Hop Farm to anyone wanting to get married. You were fantastic from the first emails we sent right through to the day. You made everything easy for us, and the day went soo smoothly. We had an excellent day, and I cannot wait to see the pictures on the bouncy pillows as that was the best

Huge thank you
Luke and I just wanted to say a massive huge thank you to you and everyone at the Hop Farm for Saturday. We had the most amazing day and I don’t think I’ll ever feel quite that special again! I also wanted to say a huge thank you to both Danni and Josh. We had a situation with the taxi that took my parents back that nearly caused an accident and hurt my parents (mum's knee is bruised and dads already injured shoulder had worsened but they are ok) due to his speeding in the bad weather conditions. Josh saved the day and took us back to our hotel and we are really grateful to him for stepping in." Luke & Elaine

Thank you all so much
Thank you will never be enough to express how grateful we are for how much work you all put in to make our wedding day(s) go perfectly. Ever since the first meeting we have had complete faith in you all - and Danni in particular handled the many meetings (with the whole family) like a pro. Thank you all so much, the weekend will be something our friends, family and us will never forget
