There is no place like it!
Firstly, a huge thank you to the entire team for helping to make our day so utterly perfect on Saturday! The amount of compliments we got on the venue was staggering - but they were right, there is no place like it. A particular thanks for the seamless way in which a mini crisis was dealt with. You are all miracle workers

No other venue came close!
Wadhurst Castle was the second venue we looked at and we instantly fell in love with it and all the decadent English charm and picturesque views it brought with it. We had 6 other viewings booked at different venues however over the next week, so we decided to do those anyway. To make sure we had ticked all our options. We had originally wanted an outdoor, barn themed wedding so a castle was a big step away from this! Even after seeing all the other venues we couldn’t help but keep comparing them to Wadhurst and none of them even came close. It was final, Wadhurst had won over our hearts and really was love at first sight for us. Who couldn’t help but fall in love with the sprawling green lawns overlooking the sheep, the beautiful rose gardens, convenient walled ceremony area and the amazing and historic interiors. It was everything we wanted in a venue, and the lovely Venue Manager Susan, was an extra added bonus for us and truly a wedding saviour and guru for us! We have both always had a love for castles and history. So we seize every opportunity and trip away as an occasion to visit a new castle. Getting married in a castle is truly us.

An amazing day!
We just wanted to share a very large thank you for help to make our wedding such a special day at Wadhurst Castle. You literally managed everything seamlessly and were a fountain of enthusiasm for our whole day. It was faultless and we couldn’t have had such a amazing day without you. A real thanks! We enjoyed every moment and now wish we could do it all over

A day we will never forget!
We wanted to say a sincere and heartfelt thank you for Saturday. I’m sure every bride and groom say it but it’s a day we’ll never forget. Everything in the run up to the event was so well organised and no request or question was too small, which really helped to put us at ease. As a result, I felt no nerves at all on the wedding day! So thank you for answering what felt like a hundred and one last minute emails and guiding me through the morning so calmly and with a smile always on your face

Our vision shone through!
Jonny and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything that you have done in the lead up to our wedding and the actual day itself! From the very first day that I met you Sue, I felt so happy and content that Wadhurst Castle was the right place for us to tie the knot and I wasn’t wrong! You allowed us to see our vision through and was so accommodating in making it happen, I just can’t thank you enough!! Clare, it was an absolute pleasure meeting you at our final details meeting and as soon as we both realised we had cocker spaniels that was it...I honestly can’t thank you enough for dressing the venue so beautifully, looking after Coco and ensuring the day run smoothly! As you both know Jonny and I are both pretty laid back but you allowed us to be on our special day, we didn’t feel stressed or worried about anything but that is down to you for making everything so amazing!!! Your presence was just wonderful, so calming and we were both made up that you were there!

Thank you!
My husband and I would like to thank yourself and Fiona for all your expertise and help on our daughter’s wedding day. We all agree we had the most wonderful day... everything went so smoothly and even the sun shone for us enabling the ceremony to take place in the walled garden which was Amy’s wish. Your help with all the finer details... positioning of flowers on lapels, order of entrance into walled garden, setting out all the accessories and so much more was greatly appreciated. From the day we first viewed Wadhurst Castle we knew it was right for us and so perfect in every way... the Castle itself has an amazing warm and homely feel and the views and gardens are stunning! We have had so many compliments about our special day from family and friends and are still chatting about the events of the day and enjoying the treasured memories and photographs. We really appreciate all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make such an event so successful. One day we hope to return to the Castle for someone else’s ‘Special day’ and see you both again but until then to you and Fiona a great big.... ‘THANK YOU
