August 2021 – Jess & Matt

We just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you so much for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. Everything went exactly as we planned it for last year but probably better!

Hannah, thank you from our first meeting back in October 2018 to coordinating our wedding day nearly 3 years later! We felt completely at ease knowing you had everything under control (including my dad! ?) but honestly, the day went so smoothly and we can’t thank you enough. The set up and all the decorations were beautiful.

Celeste, thank you for helping us plan and organise the day. Nothing was too much trouble and it helped so much in the lead up, especially through all the covid madness. The team was so good at helping us to postpone in a pretty stressful time.

Isobel, thank you for your help in the last week before the wedding and helping to sort all the little issues that came up!

The whole team were brilliant on the day and again, nothing was too much trouble.

July 2021 – Zoe & Ben

We just want to say a heartfelt thank you for everything you and the whole Gorse Hill team did for us over our wedding weekend.

The venue looked beautiful, and the food was absolutely delicious. You and your colleagues made such an effort to ensure that everything was spot on, even down to the temperature of the children’s meals. Hannah, Marcus, Tom and Will were brilliant at helping the day run smoothly and checking that we were happy throughout the day, and we know there were many others we didn’t get to meet (or who we’ve forgotten!), without whom the day would not have run so smoothly – please pass on our thanks.

Since we got back from our honeymoon a few days ago we’ve also had a chance to talk to quite a few of our family and friends. Everyone has commented on the lovely venue, how helpful all the staff were and how well run the weekend was.

Thank you both also for all your efforts in the build-up and with the planning.

We’ll be back again for a visit soon enough, I’m sure!

April 2021 – Laura & Stuart

Dear Celeste, Hannah, Tom, Isabel, Stewart & all the team at Gorse Hill

We are can’t stop talking about what a wonderful day we had yesterday- it was just perfect, completely magic from start to finish  and we can’t thank you all enough!

You completely rescued us when our original venue pulled out and you’ve all been a total joy to work with ever since- whatever the change in restrictions has thrown at us you’ve all been brilliant!

We have had so many messages from those who watched our livestream commenting on how gorgeous everything was and the family with us on the day all had a great time. The afternoon tea went down a storm and everyone said how lovely your team were. Tom- thank you for your sunshine dance, it definitely worked! Really grateful for you and Celeste setting the outdoor tables up (without us even asking) so we could make the most of the weather that was so much better than any of us expected!

Thank you all again for giving us the perfect day to start our life as Mr & Mrs Hanvey! Once Covid restrictions are gone we will definitely be in touch to book a post wedding party to celebrate with everyone who couldn’t be with us on the day!

Best wishes and huge thanks to you all!

Laura & Stuart

November 2019 – Malin & Anthony

We wanted to send you this to say a huge thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to you and the wedding events team at Gorse Hill for all your help in planning and executing everything on the day. Your attention to detail and assistance throughout the planning stage was second to none!  You were hugely helpful in answering the endless questions we sent your way, always coming back with quick and detailed replies. Nothing ever seemed too much of a hassle which we were so grateful for. A wedding is normally really stressful to plan, so we are hugely thankful to you for making it easier for us!Everything on the day flowed seamlessly, better than we ever expected and we know that’s due to all the hard work carried out by you and the team.

We couldn’t have had a more perfect day!

Nina & Craig – 7th September 2019

Can I just say Craig and I had the most amazing day and cannot thank you enough for all your support.

Our thanks must also be extended to Rebecca and the rest of the hospitality team as everything went so well and all of our friends and family had a truly wonderful time and stay.

Once again, thank you for all your help and support with the planning and the day itself, Gorse Hill are lucky to have you.

Lucinda & Justin – 14th September 2019

We wanted to say a very BIG THANK YOU to you, Rebecca and all the team. We had an amazing day and recognise how hard everyone worked to make it special, you were all fantastic! We are so happy we chose Gorse Hill as our wedding venue and will remember our day with you for the rest of our lives. It was fantastic!

January 2020: Jane & Andy

OMG what an amazing weekend x

The F&B team was amazing, we cant thank them enough for all that was done to help us celebrate our magical day. A lovely family friendly feel…

Compliments to you and your team for all the wonder dishes. NOT one bad meal from our arrival on Friday evening till our depart on Sunday morning.

Reception thank you for your patience and thank you and the house keeping team for all you done to make our stay so comfortable, beautiful clean rooms:)

John the night porter and the bar tender were very accommodating and patient with my very drunk family.

December 2019: Michelle & Scott

Hi Celeste,

Happy New Year from the new Mr and Mrs Edwards! 🙂

Michelle and I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you to you and the whole team for such an amazing wedding. All of our guests had the best time and all commented about how amazing each and every one of the staff were so please pass on our thanks to them all.

The whole day was way beyond our expectations and we wish we could relive one more time.

Thank you again for everything you did for us. We’ll be forever great full.

November 2019: Emma & Ben

Hello Celeste,

Happy New Year!

Our wedding day was just how we dreamt, we truly had the best day of our lives (minus the day Grace came into the world!) The guests have told us it is the best wedding they have ever been to and that everything had been thought of. We would like to thank you and your team for all your hard work and effort for making our wedding day one to remember for the rest of our lives together. We will be coming back to visit.

Petra & Simon – 31st August 2019

Thank you so much for all your teams hard work in making our Wedding such an amazing day. We had just the best time, and I can safely say that was the best day of our lives. We have had nothing but positive feedback from our guests, not just about the day, but the venue and staff – you should all be very proud of yourselves. We even had our DJ saying on radio that it was the best wedding he’s played at, and he has done a few so that shows the standard you guys are at. You have been an absolute star throughout preparations and the day itself.

Mark Bunyan – Saturday 20th July

What can I say but …… You and your team were fantastic from the time we arrived on the Friday to the time we departed on the Sunday!

We were delighted with how the Saturday was ‘managed’ throughout the day.  The marriage ceremony went very well, with the room looking beautiful, the time on the terrace prior to the wedding breakfast was very pleasant and the room for the wedding breakfast looked fantastic.  As for the food, throughout the day, it was superb – always nice and hot when needed!  We have received lots of positive comments about the food – if someone were to say any different then they would get short change from me.

I know Pat will be contacting you soon, to thank you.  For my own part, I would like to thank you all in some way.  I was thinking that maybe you have a social work event sometimes and I could contribute say £50 towards drinks.  Let me know what you think.

Many thanks again to you personally, Celeste, Natalie, Tom, the Chefs, those that set the tables for the wedding breakfast and then served, the bar staff, those that cleaned the rooms/moved kit from the Lodge and anyone else that made Emma and Scott’s wedding day so special and memorable!

Helen – mother of the groom Saturday 13th July 2019

Thank you to you, for all your help in the arrangements leading up to the actual day, for your patience when we couldn’t make decisions and for your great suggestions & willingness to accommodate us.

Thank you to the team who hosted us on the actual day.  They worked so hard & managed to do so without us particularly noticing them, so they weren’t intrusive.  The lady who was in charge, Rebecca, was just marvellous.  She was there when we needed her, with gentle reminders if necessary, but was also happy to go with the flow.

We were made to feel so welcome & the change of venue to the new room was perfect.  Everyone was wowed by the venue & loved the patio/garden area as well as the air-conditioned main room.

From our point of view it all worked so well.  Just magic.  The combination of relaxed (no seating plans) but tables for everyone to sit at along with the buffet outside, was perfect (though I might not have said that if I was on the last table rather than the first).

Please do pass on our thanks to all those who were involved at your end.  It was such an enjoyable day.

Maisie & Jamie – 24th May 2019

We honestly can’t thank yourself and all of the staff at Gorse Hill enough. The day went so amazingly smooth and perfect. It was better than I had ever imagined! Thank you for all of your hard work and planning!

All of our guests are still talking about it and saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

I’m still in the wedding bubble!

Holly & Chris 

Please could you pass on our thanks to all of the staff who helped to make Saturday so perfect – everything ran so smoothly and we both felt that we had nothing to do (in a good way!) and all of our guests have been so complimentary about the venue!

Caroline & Steve 

We had a fantastic time celebrating our wedding at Gorse Hill on 6th August. We would like to thank you for all your help with the organisation and countless emails beforehand. Everything turned out perfect. Please pass on our thanks to the team on the day who did a wonderful job of setting up the room and keeping everything running on time, and providing us with great service. Many of our guests commented on how lovely the venue was and how delicious the food was.

Mr & Mrs Cooper

I just wanted to say how amazingly grateful we are to you and your team for what was the most amazing day! We could not have asked for a better day and for any better service – we didn’t have to worry about a thing! Your staff went (as far as we were concerned) above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel like the most important guests that they could have and could not do enough for you! They took all the stresses away and moved us and our guests about amazingly, everyone was full of compliments! The food was great, the recommended DJ and florist did outstanding jobs and everyone seemed to love it.

Kirsty & Daniel 

The venue was perfect, the tables looked beautiful, everyone said it was a great place to hold a wedding, compliments on the food everyone said how good it was. The change over from the wedding to evening went smoothly.

Lydia & Hon

Hon and I wanted to say a huge thank you once again for all your support to help make our wedding day as wonderful as it was. We had a truly amazing time, made possible by the fact that all the staff at Gorse Hill were so polite, friendly and organised. I’m sure we’ll be returning to Gorse hill soon and will certainly be recommending it! Everyone said how fantastic the venue and staff were, so thank you once again. Also, thank you for the lovely card and chocolates that we found on our pillow!
