  • “Just a note to say thank you so much for working so hard to make Jess & Rob’s wedding at the weekend so special. You couldn’t have done more to support us, and that was reflected in how smoothly things went beforehand, on the day and afterwards. Your help in solving the last-minute crisis of the bride’s bouquet was especially appreciated!”

    Rob & Alison Atkins ~ parents of the bride Groom

  • “We were never in any doubt! you were absolutely fantastic from start to finish and could not have gone any better! every person in your team was excellent! thank you very much”

    James Doherty ~ Groom

  • “When your daughter gets married you want the day to go perfectly. Thanks to a combination of this enchanting, beautiful venue and the most impressive staff I have ever come across in any sort of venue the day could not have been any better and goes down as one of the most special days in my life. As father of the bride, I lost count of the number of times our guests said the most complimentary things about the venue and staff. For me, however, it is the standard of service that makes or breaks any venue. I would describe the service at Hawkstone Hall as Disney like”

    Tony Wilmot ~ Father of the Bride
