“The best day of our lives”, to quote one (very) happy couple among many, perfectly expresses why we do what we do – and why we love doing it. We hope you’ll soon join them.
Botleys Mansion is a fantastic wedding venue for Londoners wanting the “country estate” experience but guests able to easily travel home after the event. We ended up renting the venue for the Friday – Sunday and the staff, food, house and grounds were top notch. I’m always hesitant about wedding food but the food was superb all weekend and Botleys are definitely “feeders”! Nobody went hungry and the portion sizes were massive. Botleys changed their policy to allow dogs at the venue and our golden retriever was able to join us which was very special. Botleys were fantastic from the initial meeting through the planning and to the wedding day. Nobody batted an eyelid with any of our requests and made us feel comfortable from the minute we stepped foot in the house. We were renovating our house while planning the wedding and Botleys took all of the stress out of planning the wedding. I couldn’t recommend Botleys more!
Thank you so so much for everything you have done for us. We honestly had the best day of our entire lives. Everything was perfect, and the staff, service and food was phenomenal.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything on Saturday. I cannot believe how calm I was on the day, just knowing Jane and the team were taking care of absolutely everything so all I had to worry about was not melting! The food was fantastic, everything ran so smoothly and we’ve had so many compliments on how beautiful the space looked and how well organised it was. Really appreciate everything you all did in the run up and on the day and would thoroughly recommend you a thousand times over!
Thanks so much
We wanted to send a big thank you to you all for making our wedding so special on Saturday! We honestly couldn’t fault the day – it absolutely exceeded our expectations! The venue was stunning, food was amazing, and the team was so professional and made sure everything ran incredibly smoothly. We and our guests had the best day!!
I want to pass on my heartfelt thank you to everyone who was involved in the arrangements for my daughter Joanne and Ian’s wedding that took place Saturday 2nd September.
You made it such a magical day for them both and as far as I, my husband and all my family are concerned you exceeded our expectations.
Your staff from arrival to leaving the following day could not have done anything more for us.
It was the perfect choice for the wonderful event, your professionalism, care and attention will be remembered always.
I am sure once Jo and Ian return from their honeymoon they will be in touch with their thanks also but I felt I needed to say a big THANKYOU to everyone, Jane you are amazing at what you do.
Botleys you were amazing. From start to finish. I cannot thank you enough. Ashley, Dean, Rachael & Maddie, you have been so professional and helpful. The day was just incredible and I wish I could it all over again.
On behalf of both of us, thank you all so much!! We had the most amazing day, it was just perfect. Everything we wanted and more. You truly made our day and the whole team were amazing!
From the first time viewing the venue right up to the final goodbyes the morning after, Cain Manor were amazing.
Starting with Dean, he was a huge reason as to why we chose Cain Manor. He showed us around on the first viewing; asking us how we envisioned our day, painting a picture for us, and allowing us to see ourselves in the space. The team who helped us before the day (Megan and Ann) were very fast with responses and nothing was too much or forgotten about. Speaking to them and using the online planner was seamless I can’t imagine planning a wedding without their help or the planner! On the day I can’t explain how smoothly everything went, and if it didn’t, I was unaware as they dealt with everything so professionally and smoothly. Everyone was wonderful, but a special mention must go to Freya, Jane, and Toby who were impeccable. They really made us feel like the only people in the world. The venue itself is beautiful, and the food is still being raved about. On the 1st of September, Cain Manor was the happiest place in the world and I want to thank the staff for being able to make that happen.
To all at Cain Manor, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my daughter and husband’s wedding day the most amazing day ever. Robyn & Joe got married on Friday 1st September and from the moment we arrived and were met by Freya, to the moment she and Jane said good bye to us the following morning, the whole event was beyond what we could have imagined.
The waiting/service staff were impeccable, Toby our waiter couldn’t do enough for us, the food was outstanding! The bar staff and housekeeping staff were fabulous. I honestly can’t thank you enough. The team were there without intruding. Seamless!
As for the venue and location…magical!
Thank you to all the team at Cain Manor. Keep doing what you’re doing!!
A huge thank you to the whole Notley team for making our day so amazing. Everyone was so helpful and made the day, and the whole planning process, as stress free as possible for us. We cannot thank you enough for letting us sit back and relax whilst you made the whole venue look incredible. It really was just amazing! We are so pleased that we choose such a wonderful venue with such a professional, dedicated team for our big day. Our guests all had an amazing time and it truly was the best day of our lives.
We knew Notley Abbey was the perfect choice for us as soon as we came up the drive! Ashley (our planner) and the team were great keeping us organised and answering any questions promptly, so I felt quite relaxed in the run up to the day. On the day itself, all the staff were brilliant (special mention to Gemma!) from unloading the car when we first arrived to making sure my veil didn’t catch on anything going down the aisle to the delicious breakfast the next morning! I couldn’t fault anything and would highly recommend Notley to other couples.
We got married at Cain Manor in April 2023 and everything about the day was amazing, the staff were so helpful, friendly and extremely organised, the food was outstanding, the venue looked beautiful! All of the guests complimented the venue and said it was all amazing. I would definitely recommend Cain Manor to get married in. We couldn’t have asked for a better day!
I just want to say a huge thank you for everyone that help me organise the wedding. It was really the best day of my life and something I will remember forever!
We just wanted to email to say thank you. Yesterday was fantastic and everything we had hoped for. The whole day was stress free and the staff ensured it went smoothly and exactly to plan. Lots of guests commented on the stunning venue, incredible food and attentive staff.
We truly had the best day!
Thanks so much Ashley, the day was perfect in every way! The staff at Notley are just amazing and we really had the best day. All our guests have commented on how amazing the venue is and how lovely the food was!
We honestly had the most incredible day! Everyone said how wonderful the venue was and all the staff were incredible! Thank you so much for all your help over the last year and half we couldn’t fault anything!
Thank you again for all your help!
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for making Alfie and Ellie s wedding so special. Your staff were truly amazing, very professional in a very kind way. Everything was perfect we had the best time!
Thank you again!
Debbie and Ken
Notley Abbey was the perfect wedding venue for our June 2023 wedding! The entire process was completely stress free. Our allocated wedding planner responded to any (and every!) question and query we had in detail and promptly. The day ran so smoothly, with the entire team putting in an incredible amount of hard work and effort to ensure it all seemed effortless and perfect! The venue is also perfect regardless of the weather – we had both rain and shine and it was absolutely fine on the day. The grounds are stunning, the food was delicious, the bridal breakfast was amazing! Everything was perfect, I would 100% recommend this venue. I only wish I could do it all over again.
It is difficult to know where to start in thanking Notley Abbey for a wonderful weekend of celebrations.
I think it would best be summed up by saying the Notley team all seem to love what they do and that love creates very special moments for their guests. The smiling welcome, the supportive messaging, the helping hands, the attention to detail all contribute to ensuring wonderful celebrations. Thank you to the planning and hosting teams. The beauty of the building is reflected in the quality of the food and wine. The supper, breakfasts and wedding banquet were utterly sublime. Thank you to the wine, bar, kitchen and waiting teams. Notley Abbey is a truly magical place and the bedrooms and the whole house were beautifully presented. Thank you to the housekeeping and maintenance teams.
The wonderful gardens at Notley provide a beautiful backdrop to celebrations. Thank you to the gardening team.

Thanks so much for everything- the day was perfect and you were all so incredible with how smoothly you made the day fun.
Myself and Reema are just back from our Mini-Moon, and honestly still cannot get over what a fantastic day Saturday was! We had several people mention it was “the best wedding” they had attended.
Our biggest thanks to the entire team – especially Yasmin who looked after us on the day itself and really went the extra mile to ensure that all the little touches were in place.
Ryan and I wanted to reach out to say a huge thank you for your assistance on the day. From start to finish, the staff were incredible and everything ran so seamlessly. We appreciate the efforts made to accommodate us and our guests, to leave us with lasting memories of a lifetime! Thanks once again.
I just wanted to say a thank you too you all for really making our day so special! All the staff on the day were so helpful and you have been so good when helping us plan it. Thank you all so much!
I think your whole staff were absolutely fantastic and to be honest made our day as great as it was. I would definitely recommend Botleys in the future to anyone. Finally, a massive thank you to you! (Ashley) You were amazing from start to finish with the prep and helping, I know I wasn’t the easiest of brides and had lots of visions in mind, so I appreciate you guiding me into what’s best to ensure me and Kyle have the most amazing day! Some of the tips you gave were spot on including saving the speeches until after the meal, so thank you very much!
We just wanted to say thank you so so much for making our wedding day perfect and run so smoothly, many of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue, food and atmostphere was. Some even told me it was the best wedding they’d ever been to. We were blown away with how nice the staff were and we will definitely recommend people to get married here in the future.
Tim and I would like to thank you all for everything you did leading up to, and on, our wedding day. We had the most perfect day and we really appreciate all of the hard work from everyone involved! From the management team, waiting staff, bar staff and cleaning staff, everyone was super friendly and helpful throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend Notley Abbey to anyone looking for a venue. We absolutely loved our day.
Just want to thank you all for giving us the most perfect day! You were all amazing and made it go so easy for us! Thank you all again!
I arrived at Notley on Friday evening and from the moment I arrived with my family & friends, I knew we had the perfect wedding venue. We were greeted on arrival, help was given to unload the cars & dinner was provided! Service was outstanding. Then we go onto the actual wedding day itself and we are both lost for words. There are no words other than you were all incredible. Every single person from the amazing Barbara, who kept us all in order right through to the staff who served dinner and at the bar. All of our family & friends have commented about the beautiful venue & we’re so grateful to you. We’d recommend your venue in a heartbeat & Notley Abbey will always hold a very special place in our hearts. We’ll most definitely be back & forever be scrolling through the photos.
What a wonderful day we had on Monday! The venue looked stunning as always, and Barbara was incredibly helpful which was commented on by many people. Thank you for making sure our day ran smoothly.
I wanted to come on here to say a huge and heartfelt thank you for everything in the run up to and on the big day itself. Ann and Maddie you are both superstars in answering all our questions, and running the big day so well. We had the perfect wedding day and all the guests kept saying that it was run like absolute clockwork – you, the team, the waiters are blooming fantastic and Morgan as the MoC was superb! We can’t thank you all enough!! Thank you!!

Amazing venue, incredible staff on wedding day!We chose Notley Abbey for it’s beautiful drive up and the stunning venue. Leading up to our special day we really enjoyed the wedding Wednesday’s, menu tasting and online planner. The day itself went perfectly, the operations manager on the day was so helpful, put me at ease and made everything run smoothly.
Grant and I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for last week! It was our dream day. A specific shout out to Yasmine who was just incredible on the day- she was able to help with everything but without being in the way at all!
It was such a a spectacular day and we received so many compliments on the venue too.
From the amazing food, service and just how chilled the Atmosphere was. That is all thanks to your team, you should be very proud. Lots of the guests had been to many different weddings and different venues and everyone has said it’s the best wedding food, drink and service they have ever had. Nothing was too much for the team and honestly we couldn’t have asked for more.
We are honestly so so thankful for giving us the BEST day of our lives- sorry kids but your births have been outdone.
From all the planning, visits, taster sessions, showcase evening, answering my emails promptly to the big day itself, you have all been wonderful. On the day, everything ran perfectly and the food/drinks were delicious. Many of our guests commented on the food plus how stunning the venue was. As a team you ran the day seamlessly which put Glenn and I both at ease. The whole experience from first visiting Cain Manor to our big day has been great and we would thoroughly recommend your services to anyone else. We can’t stop talking about how special Friday was with all our friends and family.
Please pass on our thanks to the Wedding team who helped make our wedding a fantastic day. Rachael especially, and the team on the day were absolutely amazing. I also had loads of compliments about the food and the venue itself. Ashley – thank you for always answering all my questions so promptly.
I just wanted to send a message to say a MASSIVE thank you for everything. From the moment I made my first enquiry, to postponing our wedding numerous times, the countless emails and then eventually the day itself – you have all been incredible. I would recommend Harper Weddings in a heart beat, and we are so glad we chose Notley. Every visit we made the staff were so friendly, attentive and welcoming. The venue is beautiful, the food was amazing – everything just perfect. Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the team including chefs, waiting/bar staff, cleaners, groundsmen and everyone else behind the scenes. You have a wonderful team! Thank you again for everything you did to make our day so memorable – I wish we could do it all over again!
We would like to say a huge thank you to you and the venue team for everything. We had an absolutely incredible day. Thank you for all your help and time answering all our queries so diligently and promptly. You made us feel at ease with the whole planning process and helped with making all the details we wanted for our day such as the pisco sours and cake boxes a reality.
The day was a total success down to you four so again, thank you for all your work and attention.
Everything ran so smoothly and the hard work of you and the rest of your team really showed in how organised and stress-free the whole day was. We also got a lot of lovely feedback from guests about how beautiful the venue was and how good the food was. And I was particularly impressed with how smooth the handling of our various dietary requirements was. Thank you so much to you, the rest of your team and the managers on the day!
Thank you to all of you and the team at Botleys. We had an amazing day, and so many guests have told us it’s the best wedding they’ve been to. Thanks for help to arrange the singing waiters etc, honestly we’ve been on cloud 9 and would do anything to do it all again!!
Just wanted to send a massive thank you to Harper Weddings for all your help and support leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day. Your team are truly amazing! We could not have asked for more.
We would like to say a big thank you to you and the whole team who contributed to our wedding day being so beautiful and special. You have created a very easy and non-stress environment for us that we really appreciated. We felt like you had everything under control the whole time and you worked very hard to ensure that the day goes just as we planned. The grounds and the building looked so beautiful, the food was amazing and the staff was very helpful and professional. We want to send a special thank you to two ladies that were with us on that day, the wedding manager and the master of ceremony. They worked soo hard to ensure we have the best day and they really succeeded in this. We couldn’t be happier from the wedding day.
We wanted to say a big thank you to everyone at Notley for going out of their way to make sure we had the best day. Everyone was so lovely and helpful, and our guests were blown away with the venue and the food.
You and the team have been so incredibly helpful throughout the (almost 3 years!) of planning and to know you’re an email away at any point has been hugely appreciated and reassuring! We’ve had whats felt like endless odd requests and questions for you all! Another huge thank you to Rachel, Ana and Barbs for their help with running yesterday. It was the best day ever for us and we put much of that down to the calmness and helpful nature of all of us – especially Barbs last minute advice before we walked down the aisle and Rachel’s dress holding and floofing! So many of our guests commented on the staff on day, and how amazing the food was. We really couldn’t fault anything.
We had the most incredible day from start to finish and could not fault anyone one the staff members! Everyone was so helpful and supportive, from helping with the online planner, to booking visits to our Wedding Day, everyone at Notley Abbey helped make our day the fairytale we had dreamed it would be. All our guests commented on how incredible the food, service, organisation and decorations were. We had the most amazing day and loved every second of our wedding day. Me and Grant thought all staff were incredibly helpful and supportive on our day!
We had a wonderful time and all the guests very much enjoyed the wedding. Everything ran smoothly and many people complimented on how beautiful the venue was. The food was enjoyed and portions were very generous. Dean in particular was fantastic on the day and we grately appreciated having him there to manage any changes that came up! Maddie was also wonderful in the planning process and was instrumental in putting the day together. Many thanks Bijou for an unforgettable wedding!
We had such an amazing day from start to finish, the attention to detail, the staff at the venue were incredible, especially Jess & Pam. You made the day run seamlessly! Along with Ann keeping in touch throughout the whole planning process. So we wanted to say a big thank you for everything, we couldn’t stop smiling.
From before the big day, Ashley and the organising team were incredible. From helping us with any queries and guiding us through the planner (which is amazing by the way), to last minute change requests that you quickly resolved, and accommodating some of our more obscure requirements like my non-alcoholic wine.
Then when the big day did arrive, Barbara and the team were just phenomenal, and a large part of why we enjoyed our day so much and why it ran so smoothly. Barbara has clearly done MANY weddings before and that shows in her kind advice and tips.
Throughout the day; everything ran so smoothly and to schedule, and it was all thanks to them. They made us feel so relaxed, made sure we were in the right place at the right time; and nothing was too much trouble – despite being very busy they were always calm, positive and happy.
Overall, we had a great day – and Harper staff are a large part of this success. The level of hospitality offered by Harper staff really is something to be proud of, and is some of the best we have experienced. Cain Manor is an exceptional venue with exceptional staff. We would not hesitate to recommend Harper to other couples. Once again, thank you very much for everything you have done and we wish you all the best for the future.
I wanted to thank you & your team for such a wonderful day – And making everything running so smoothly it seemed to be that no request was ever to much trouble.
We wanted to pass on our thanks for the support and assistance you gave us (over the last few years given the covid delays!), and most especially on the day itself. A particular mention to Sam who was the manager in the morning, who really helped keep us calm and nothing was too much trouble. We loved celebrating our wedding at Botleys, and have so many lovely photos to look back on. We likewise received lots of compliments from our guests on the venue itself and also the food, which everyone said was fantastic.
Thank you for everything. We have just about recovered from our wedding and honeymoon. Thank you for all your help and thank you for making our wedding day super special. All the guests loved the venue and we had the best time!
We want to say a BIG THANK YOU to you all for the most amazing wedding day! We cannot thank you enough for all your help in the lead up and to the whole team on the day for looking after us. Especially Jess from start to finish who showed us round on our first viewing and then looked after us whilst we had our nightcaps at the end. Also, Annette who was amazing at our tasting and incredibly kind on the day. The food was delicious, the servers were professional and we cannot fault anything, it felt like we were waited on all day. We could not have been happier thanks to you all and the day itself was just perfect.
Thanks again to the whole Bijou team for helping to create such a magical day for us yesterday. It really was the happiest day of our lives!
Thank you for your support during this very drawn out and uncertain time. We had a brilliant wedding celebration and would just so love to do it all again, if we could!! All our guests said how special and unique the day was, and the venue and staff helped make it so.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything on our wedding day, and the lead up to it! We had the most wonderful day with memories we will treasure forever. Please do extend the thanks to all your staff that were involved throughout our journey.
Wow! Our day was just perfect! The whole process of planning with Maddie to being so well looked after by Sarah in the morning. Our fantastic Master of Ceremonies, everyone loved how amazing the team were! So so attentive and welcoming. Everyone was so complimentary of the food, they loved it! It really was the most amazing day and you guys are such a big part of it. Thank you for giving us and our guests a day to remember for the rest of our lives!
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team at Botleys for everything you’ve done for me and my wife over the past 3 years. I’ve heard of many horror stories with wedding venue’s throughout the covid period but you guys have acted with pure class and I’ll be forever singing your praises.
Thank you so much. We had an amazing day and the staff were absolutely brilliant, couldn’t fault a thing at all.
Firstly, we wanted to say a huge thank you to you for organising our day, please pass on huge thanks to all the team on the day that made it so special…we are so happy with how everything turned out and they really made it ever more special.
Thank you so much, we had the best day and just wish we could do it all over again!! Thank you so so much for all your help. We can’t thank you enough and have loved working with you. Thank you!
Just wanted to drop you an email to say Thank you for the best day of our lives, last Saturday! We had the most amazing day, venue looked stunning, staff were fantastic and food was unreal! Thank you for all the support over the last year or so, you’ve all been really helpful.
Thank you all so much for such a lovely wedding day, both managers on the day were incredible as were all the staff.
We just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for everything that you all at Cain Manor did to make our day on 8th April so special. Your kindness, diligence and patience in answering our endless enquiries (!) was really amazing. The whole occasion went so smoothly, the friendliness and warmth of the entire staff both in the preparation and on the day itself creating the happiest atmosphere. Needless to say, we have been inundated with compliments in the past few weeks both about the venue and about how welcoming everybody on the team was. It was exceptional from first to last and we can’t thank you enough.
With very best wishes for the future and huge thanks again.
We just wanted to say thank you so much for an amazing day. It was lovely and all the staff were absolutely amazing. Everything was perfect. Most definitely a memory that will last us a lifetime.
We had an amazing day of wedding celebration! A huge thanks goes to Barbra for keeping things calm throughout the day and particularly when some of Steves family decided to mess us around last Minute on if they attending or not! We know this was a real pain so thank you for accommodating them. Thanks once again the day was so much fun and very us!
David and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at Cain manor for all the help on the lead up to the wedding and everyone there on the day making sure it ran smoothly. We had THE BEST day. Thank you so much.
We had the most perfect wedding day ever, there is not one single thing we would change about our day at Notley. We were so well looked after from the moment we arrived on Wednesday evening to the moment we left on Friday morning. We had the most special and magical day – thank you for helping it be that.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful wedding! We loved every minute of it. Thank you to all the staff who helped us in the lead up organising everything and to everyone who was there on the day – thanks to you everything went incredibly smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. All our guests commented on how calm and relaxed we seemed to be, and a huge part of that is thanks to the Harper team!
We had the most wonderful wedding day! Thank you so much to everyone who made the day run seamlessly, it was truly unforgettable!
Just a quick message to saya HUGE thank you for our brilliant wedding at the weekend. We really had the most incredible day at Notley. The staff, the service, the food, absolutely everything was wonderful.
Just wanted to say what an amazing day Amy and I had yesterday, everything was so perfect and we both had so much fun so thank you to you and the Notley team for doing a great job and all of our guests commented on how good the food was!
Thank everyone for their help on making our day so very special. We really had the best day and felt very relaxed with the staff doing their upmost best to ensure that the day ran smoothly. Sam was amazing all morning with helping both myself and Chris organise the day amongst the chaos of us getting ready and both of us feeling nervous! We cannot thank her enough.
We had the most magical day and want to thank you all for making our fairytale wedding happen. From Ian our master of ceremonies, who was incredible, to Rachel who made sure we had canapés at the start and made sure we saw everything before everyone else (the reception room, the dance floor) and to Yasmin who looked after us in the evening, we can’t thank you enough. The service we had was impeccable.
Maddie, I would like to say a massive thank you to you and the team for the smooth and absolutely stunning wedding I had on Friday!
I would like to pass on my thanks to Sarah, Emma, Jack and I think it was Yasmin in the morning. All were amazing from the time I arrived, made sure I knew what was going on behind the scenes as well, to updating me through the night, sometimes just a simple nod to leaving at breakfast in the morning. Thank you!
It was truly amazing and special day and I am very grateful to you and the bijou team that made it so wonderful!
Dear Ann, Dan and the Harper team,Oli and I would like to say a massive thank you for all your help with our wedding on Saturday and the planning on the build up to it. We thought the messaging system was great. Thank you for all the quick responses. It really helped with the planning process. Thank you for your help with coordinating everything on the morning of the wedding. Maxine was great at keeping me up to date with what was going on downstairs and keeping me on schedule. It enabled me to focus on getting ready and spending a bit of time with family and bridesmaids before the ceremony which was really nice. Thanks to Sam and the rest of the staff for looking after me throughout the evening. Everyone had a great time and I have had so many messages from guests saying how much they enjoyed it and loved the venue.
As we ease ourselves into a new year, Jim and I wanted to thank you all for what was indeed a wedding to remember.
From the outset, you have all been the most wonderful team ( the emphasis on team) to work with. Memories of our Daughter Kate’s wedding on the 3rd November 2017 set the bar very high for you all but from the moment we met Maddie at Cain Manor, and then again at Notley, we were ever thankful that Wasing Park blew us out!
The planning process was made so easy with the online planner and knowing that we were able to chat with a member of the team whenever we had any questions. The planning meetings were really helpful and it was great to meet you too. It was reassuring to know that you were all over the details.
Our wedding day itself was perfect. The venue looked stunning, we had so many compliments from our guests and we were both very well looked after by Lisa, Barbara, Jess & Uschi throughout the day. Everything went seamlessly, we couldn’t have asked for more.
Just wanted to email to say thank you ever so much for everything! We had the most wonderful day on Friday!!! The staff, food, venue…everything was just perfect. Please may you pass on our sincere thanks to Dan and Emma as they are fantastic and couldn’t do enough for us!
Needless to say we had the most AMAZING day, and experience at Notley. It’s such a special place and we’re thrilled that we chose it for our wedding. A huge thanks to you for all your help in organising a seamless experience – and to the team on the day for looking after us so thoroughly well.
Just wish we could do it all again!
The actual day just ran so smoothly and I had to do nothing on the day as it was all taken care of. From placing the place cards on tables and taking my veil to my room after the ceremony! The food and drinks were sublime and my guests said it was the best wedding food they have ever had! They also commented how wonderful the servers and bar staff were! You of course pay a premium for Botleys but you get what you pay for! Would recommend to anyone and thank you for making our special day so wonderful!
Firstly, can we say a big thank you to you all for everything that you did both in the run up to the wedding and on the big day itself. It was seamless from start to finish and managed to feel intimate all at the same time! You all really helped us celebrate our day- including the surprises organised by my parents which were totally secret! Thank you all again for everything- it truly was a wonderful day.
As soon as we pulled up, we knew Notley Abbey was where we wanted to get married, and we had a wonderful day last month. The whole Notley team was fantastic, both throughout the planning process and on the day. I’ve lost count of how many guests commented on how stunning the venue was and how professional the team were.
We’re back from honeymoon and just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for everything for our pre-wedding night and wedding. You all did amazing, especially all three managers Dan, Sam and Maxine, who were so helpful the whole time and made the whole thing seamless! All our guests have said what a great time they had. We LOVED every minute of it!
We just wanted to email and say thank you again for helping to give us the most amazing wedding day. Everything from start to finish was perfect and the service on the day was impeccable.
The wedding was AMAZING!
Everything was absolutely wonderful! The food and service were fabulous! The staff and everyone at Notley Abbey that day were incredible, so helpful, professional and lovely to us and our guests. The day was truely magical and we are still on a wedding high
I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who played a part in making our day so special, the venue is amazing, but your team were truly fantastic. Everyone was so professional and the attention to detail was perfect, with everyone definitely on the same page, a true team!!!
We are finally coming down from the massive high of this weekend! Thank you so much to you and the whole Botley’s team for helping us to have the most amazing day! The whole day was so stress-free and everything went so well. The waiting and bar staff were amazing and couldn’t do enough for us – please pass on our thanks. The venue managers were so helpful without being intrusive at all and we really appreciated them being on hand all day. We’ve had so many comments about how beautiful the venue was and especially how good the food was which means so much to us, so thank you to the kitchen staff for that! It was just the best day we could have asked for so thank you so much and take care!
We just wanted to say a big thank you to all your staff that helped make our day so special! A big thank you to Guy and Sam who ensured everything happened so seamlessly & kept us both very relaxed throughout the whole day. To both Ann and Maddie that helped so much throughout the whole planning process, we couldn’t have done this without you. It might have been a year later than planned, but we honestly had the best day ever and wish we could do it all over again… It was 100% worth the wait for a restriction free wedding! We can’t believe we have been married a week already!
Our wedding day at Notley was amazing. The Harper team looked after us superbly and nothing was too much trouble. On the day Ian and Gemma ensured the day ran beautifully. We would like to also thank Annette who was a superstar by being incredibly flexible and helpful during the set up of the day. The little touch of offering and making orange bows from our left over ribbon to put on the seating plan cards was above and beyond. We would also like to thank the support team and particularly Maddie who accommodated all of the changes and requests as the big day approached. Our guests were all very complimentary about the venue, the food and wine and the overall service they received. Thanks again for making our day so special and memorable. We loved it.
Maddie, Casey, Carol, just wanted to say thank you so so much for all of your behind the scenes prep leading up to our day yesterday. Your team executed it so brilliantly and all of our guests have remarked on how slick the service was! Huge thanks from the both of us.
We just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our wedding day on Thursday. The whole day ran so smoothly, it really was a dream come true. Maddie and Anne have been fantastic throughout the planning process. Nothing was too much trouble, including all the last minute changes after the planner was locked. Thank you so much. To the lovely ladies who met me in the reception and were constantly checking every detail was perfect, as a bride could not have asked for anything more.
A note to say a very big thank you to all the staff at Notley Abbey for helping us to have the most perfect day for our daughters wedding on Saturday 14th August. The organisation and smooth running of the whole day was incredible, what a great team you have. Notley Abbey really felt like home for the day. It is a beautiful venue and from their first visit Jenny and Tom fell in love with it and knew it was just perfect. It will hold a special place in their hearts I’m sure.
Thank you all – we wish we could do it all again!
We cannot thank Notley Abbey and all of its staff enough for the most wonderful wedding day. To say you go above and beyond is an understatement. Right from the initial viewings, planning meetings and tastings, we were completely at ease because it was clear that you were extremely experienced and we had no doubts that our special day would be exactly that. The planning tool was fantastic – it gave us the ability to interactive with you regularly and your responsiveness and willingness to adapt to bespoke ideas was exceptional.
I just wanted to personally reach out and say a huge Thankyou to you for being a perfect planner and all the help and support you’ve given us this past 2 years. It truly led to the most amazing day without a hiccup ! So Thankyou.
We had a wonderful wedding day at Botleys Mansion – it surpassed both of our expectations. Many of our guests commented on the outstanding quality of the food, professional service & the general relaxed flow of the day. It was exactly what we wanted – you did us proud. Dan, our wedding coordinator was simply excellent – he was calm, organised, extremely personable and a thoroughly professional hand on the wheel throughout. Emma, our MC, was also outstanding on what we understand was her first wedding assignment – always available to ensure the smooth running of the evening until the last guests had left.
Firstly thank you to everyone at Harper, Wayne & I had a wonderful day. Thank you for everyones help and patience over the months. Once again, thank you for such a memorable day.
I don’t know where to start with such an incredible day we had. Absolutely blown away! Working with you and your team in the run up was absolutely faultless and ensured the day was as we had dreamed of. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, nothing was too much trouble and the team were always a few steps ahead allowing Simon and I to really enjoy the day.

And of course Alex was absolutely beautiful as I knew she would be! Huge thanks to Maddie and Jo for putting up with all our questions over the last 18 months and helping us stay positive when we didn’t know if we’d be able to have the wedding we wanted – we got there in the end!
Me and Maria would just like to say thank you to Maddie and Anne for organising our planner and making it so easy to plan the big day. The day was amazing and Dan who was in charge was fantastic! He spoke to us on many occasions seeing how we were. Would highly recommend your venue to other couples!
We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for everything that you did for us last Saturday. We had a fantastic day and everything went perfectly. The attention to detail that you had throughout the day was amazing from making sure we had a drink and some canapés to taking us around the room before everyone else was amazing.
Thank you for everything you did.
We can’t recommend Notley Abbey enough, we had to rearrange our wedding 4 times due to covid and they made it so easy to finally get our special day! Our wedding day was fantastic, the venue and staff were amazing and did everything possible to make our day exactly as we wanted it! We had our dream wedding and we can’t thank Notley Abbey enough for helping to make this possible!

I wanted to reach out to you and thank you so much for an amazing day. I’m sure like a swan, your team were peddling hard under the water, but from ours and our guests perspective, the day went off without a hitch, and we can’t thank you enough. Everything from your colleagues during the day who were incredibly supportive, warm and friendly, to the food that was impeccable. The feedback from all of our guests has been superb.
I have been racking my brain about what to say that can really show you how pleased, grateful, thankful we are for everything but I am not sure I can find the words to show you just how happy we truly are!
The day was seamless. The number of comments we have had about how brilliant the venue was, how nice the food was and how impressed people were with the service etc has been overwhelming. It truly was the best day and I cannot thank you enough for making it happen. I will be forever grateful to you all!

We had a wonderful day and I cannot praise the staff enough, first class , efficient and friendly. The venue was perfect absolutely spotless with excellent service . Thank you for making my daughter’s wedding worth waiting for and I can recommend Harper at Cain Manor 100%.
I just wanted to email now we are home from our mini moon to say what an amazing time we had on Saturday. Was everything we dreamt of and more! Thank you all so much again for the best memories we will cherish forever.

Thank you to you and Botleys Mansion for making our wedding fabulous. We are grateful for the professionalism and commitment you gave us.
Thank you so much for yesterday! We had the best day ever. Special shout out to Dan who really made our day, he couldn’t do enough for us!
Yesterday was such an amazing day. Everything ran so smoothly. It was everything we dreamed of and more. Thank you to yourself and the rest of the team for ensuring everything we wanted happened without a blip. Thank you also for standing by us with multiple postponements.
It was everything we could and would have wished for. All we could say after was let’s do it all again because it just went too quickly. Dan, Rachel and Emma really went above and beyond to ensure the day flowed and that we were truly never without. They thought about everything and really made the day special for us. The food was delicious and was a highlight for everyone, we are still receiving messages about how delicious the food was and how it was the best people have ever had at any wedding before! The timings, turn around of the rooms, the set up, drinks were all fantastic and we are both very grateful to you all. We thank you so much again.
Thank you again to everyone, we couldn’t recommend the whole experience more!
First of all, we were conscious, through Jennifer, of how wonderfully supportive you and your team have been and how positive you have been towards their having the type of wedding they always hoped for. You were consistently constructive in working through all the little impediments which recent restrictions threw up. Nothing became a problem.
Second, the quality of your staff, both front of stalls and backstage, your facilities and your catering, and your management team, is simply outstanding. The service we received, the attention from staff who were there but not intrusive, made the evening. As for the food, all agreed, excellent. The table staff, (forgive me if that is not the correct terminology,) were quiet and so efficient. Breakfast – just what was required.
Just a quick note to say we had an amazing day. The staff were absolutely fantastic, both Dean and Dan on the day made it run so smoothly!
Firstly Jamie and I would just like to say that we had the most amazing day on Saturday – it was 100% worth the wait. Thank you for all your help in the lead up to the event.
Me and Rory had the most amazing few days at Cain manor last week! It was incredible! Please pass my thanks to all the staff from the day of who went above and beyond to ensure we had the most brilliant day! They were amazing! and from the day we booked every single staff member has been absolutely fantastic in helping us have the wedding (s) we always dreamed of! With every single problem you were there with an answer and with a helping hand. We have both been so touched by the help we have had and how well we have been treated. Thank you all once again!
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to the whole team. It was truly an amazing day. The service was faultless and we couldn?t have asked for more. Please pass on our thanks to everyone who made our day so special.
Thanks so much for everything on Sunday, we had a fantastic day and all the staff were amazing!! Everybody loved the venue and the food. Cant believe its all over!
As soon as we saw Botleys Mansion, we knew this was the venue we wanted for our wedding. Starting at the bottom of the sweeping drive, working its way through the stunning surroundings, up to the double staircases at the front entrance, to the Green Room and finally to the conservatory – everything about the venue definitely has the wow factor. The grandeur of the exterior combined with the elegant, well looked after, modern interior (which retains classic touches) really makes for a truly stunning venue. The planners were great to deal with in the lead up, always there for help and advice throughout. The team on the day were exceptional! Big shout out to Dan who ensured our day ran without a hitch. All in all, the team went out of their way to ensure our day was perfect and we can’t thank them enough. Especially coupled with the beautiful food, cocktails and wine. All in all a 10/10 experience.
Dear Harper Team, Kevin & I just want to say a huge thank you to all the team at Botley’s for making our day so special from the moment we arrived to when we left. We could not have asked for such a professional well-run day. Many of our guests commented on the smooth running, the delicious food, the attentive service and the pleasant staff who could not do enough for us. Special mention should go to Ann for taking calls and sorting out last minute changes, Dan for ensuring a smooth-running day and keeping us on track and to Hayley for her organisation of the evening. The day was truly magical, and all family and friends enjoyed themselves immensely. THANK YOU BOTLEY’S, AMAZING!!!We also want to commend the Harper team for all their help and support throughout the complications of the COVID pandemic and our initial postponement through to our special day.
I just wanted to thank you for a providing a wonderful wedding celebration for my daughter and son in law at Botley’s Mansion on Friday 6th August. From arriving at the venue to leaving everything was perfectly and seamlessly organised. Everyone was so attentive and helpful throughout the day and all the guests have commented in particular about the amazing food.
We recently had our wedding at Botleys and we cannot recommend the team and venue enough. Our day was absolutely beautiful, Maddie was amazing throughout the planning stages and during a stressful time helped so much! The food, drinks and staff on the day were unbelievable. Our guests were so impressed with everything. Again, thank you all so much for giving us the best day!
Everyone we dealt with during our time at Cain Manor was excellent, and in particular Dean and Emma – nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to the online planner we were able to provide all our instructions ahead of time and then after leaving our extra decorations with the team were able to relax ahead of our big day. Everything we’d requested was carried out to the letter by the team, and the service was faultless throughout. As well as the appearance of the venue many of our guests also complimented the food – it’s amongst some of the best we’ve had, and as well as the beautiful surroundings made our day memorable. They do say people remember what they eat at a wedding and I think us and our guests certainly will! Whilst this isn’t a cheap venue to hire in my opinion you get what you pay for, and Cain Manor was worth every penny. We’d do it all again tomorrow if we could…. Thank you again for an amazing day!
Our wedding was held at Cain Manor on 9th July 2021. I can honestly say it was the best day of my life in the most beautiful venue. The wedding planning team were second to none in the run up to the big day answering a myriad of questions with such efficiency and speed. Then the staff on the day surpassed all our expectations. From Dean and Antonio, the managers, to Emma who just checked in on my every need throughout the day. And as for the food, it is top end restaurant quality and all our guests commented on it. The venue itself could not be a more beautiful setting and its exclusivity just makes you feel like you are at home with your nearest and dearest. It is so intimate, discreet and magical. Like all brides, I had huge expecations for the day and I wouldn’t change a thing. Says it all.
The professionalism was incredible but with a lovely touch of being treated like a friend by them and made to feel the most important person in the world. Of course they also had a great team supporting on the day. The food was delicious and all our guests have complimented us on that – which is a great compliment as all of us are real foodies! The organisation on the day was perfect – we could not have asked for more
We had such a wonderful day on Saturday – the best day of our lives!! Thank you so much to you and all of the staff for making it happen for us!
Just to say that we really really enjoyed our big day at Notley Abbey so thank you very very much to Jess and the rest of the team for making it happen. We will cherish the memories for the rest of our lives.
Thank you so much for making our wedding experience so special. We and our families had the best couple of days which is testament to you. Ann, Jess, Annette and everyone worked so hard to make it seamless and unforgettable. We received so many compliments on the services and how each and every staff member was so kind and helpful. We will remember it forever!
We just wanted to pass on our thanks and appreciation for a fantastic day on Saturday.
The team on the day were brilliant from Caitlin, Jess and Antonio to the waiting/bar staff. The venue looked incredible and the food was delicious. Our guests frequently commented on how great the day was and we really appreciate everyone’s efforts in making it such a brilliant day.
Notley Abbey takes no introduction as an incredibly breath-taking venue. The driveway is literally to die for and the historic property with modern touches is every bride’s dream. What the pictures don’t tell you however is how incredible the staff are at Notley and how they are the true selling point to this venue. From the first time we viewed the venue right up to our big day the staff at Notley were absolutely flawless and they held our hands throughout the whole process making sure that we were stress free at all times. Everyone told me before the wedding not to be disappointed is something goes wrong as nobody will notice on the day. I can honestly say that not a single detail was out of place and that was totally down to the staff at Notley.
Saturday surpassed all our expectations and was literally the best day ever. Kieran and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we couldn’t have asked or wanted anything more. The staff on the day were so attentive, professional and friendly and were always walking around with a smile on their faces. Our guests commented on how wonderful the staff were and you guys really did smash it.
To all the staff at Harper Weddings and Notley Abbey, From the bottom of our hearts, we would both like to say thank you for everything you have done for us in the run up to our wedding and on the actual wedding day itself. You have given us the perfect day for the rest of our lives and we are so grateful. The professionalism of all the staff, the dedication to the little details and the quality of service made our day incredibly special, and it ran like clock work which for a worrier like me was very reassuring. You have always gone the extra mile.
We had the most fantastic day and can’t thank the staff enough for all their hard work and incredible attention to detail on the day. Everyone was absolutely brilliant especially Lisa who put me at ease and made sure my vision for the day came to life perfectly!
Jennifer, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for all that you did for us and the efforts you put into making our wedding a special day. People couldn’t praise us enough for how everything turned out. All the details like the flowers and the food was amazing. The cake was just fantastic. Every detail was 100% and the Harper team was so professional. As for Dan and Guy, they were just fantastic. Dan was just amazing on the day.
Phillippa, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself, Casey, Ann and the rest of The Harper Team who all helped make our wedding day the best it could be. We had a wonderful day and so did our guests – we’ve had no end of compliments on not just the beauty of Notley, but the quality and service level too. We wish we could do it all over again!
I just want to say that we couldn’t have asked for more from you all. From the very first time we came to visit Notley and was shown round by Uschi, to wedding planning Wednesdays and all the emails on here, through to yesterday. Lisa was incredible, as was Uschi. I was so happy when Lisa said that my dress was ‘so Notley’ the food, drink, staff were perfection. Thank you thank you thank you!
We had the most perfect day on Saturday – every single thing was better than we could have possibly imagined. The staff were unbelievably helpful and professional, the food was delicious and there wasn’t a single guest who didn’t comment on how wonderful the setting was. Thank you so much!
We have just arrived back from our honeymoon in Croatia and are still enjoying talking about our wedding day in detail. We had a magical day which was due, in a large part, to the wonderful venue, food and staff. Everything ran very smoothly and nothing was too much trouble for your excellent management team – please pass our thanks on to everyone involved in the day – particularly Lisa who was amazing!
My wife and I attended a wedding at Notley Abbey on April 12, 2018 and I had to write and tell you what a wonderful day it was, especially, of course, for the bride and groom. Your staff were lovely, with the team who waited on providing a charming, calm, quiet professionalism that augurs well for their futures. I must also praise your kitchen staff. You are so lucky to have them. I love my food and can say without hesitation that the wedding dinner was worthy of the finest restaurants and hotels in London.
Thank you all for the most incredible day! Everyone was amazing on the day and we can’t thank everyone enough, they made our day so special and everyone has commented on the venue, staff and food.
Hi Maddie, Thanks for all your help, we had the best time ever! All of the staff were so lovely, so please pass our thanks on to Lisa, Philippa and Kerry. All of our guests commented on how nice everyone and everything was.
All of the staff are so friendly, professional and so happy and genuine too. It really made the day extra special. Many of the guests commented on it as well. A special thanks to Ann, for putting up with all of my emails, and calmly pointing me in the right direction with the planner. It all felt so easy. The food tasting day was the best!! As I couldn’t actually eat at the wedding, I was glad I had had the opportunity to eat the delicious food. Thanks again!
Thanks for a fantastic wedding at Notley. We had a wonderful day and all our guests said how lovely the venue was. We were extremely well looked after so would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff at Notley for making our day so memorable.
Thanks everyone at Harper for a great day on Saturday. The service and management of the event was excellent and we had the perfect day. Even the rain made it better as everyone remained in the house and couldn’t disperse, adding to the atmosphere. A special mention to the waiting staff during the banquet – I have had a number of comments from guests saying how professional and seamless it was.
We just wanted to say an enormous thank you for making everything about our wedding day so wonderful! We had such an incredible day. Maddie, thank you for all of your help to plan our perfect day. Please pass on our thanks to Phillippa, Jenny, Ann and our night manager, Kerry, who all made the day run so perfectly. We’d also like to thank all the staff, who did such an incredible job and have been complimented by many of our guests! Thank you so much!
Dear Ann, I just want to thank you so much for all your help in the run up to their wedding. The day ran like a dream thanks to the care and attention paid by yourself and by Lisa and her wonderful staff. Everyone worked so hard so make Jess and James’ day so very very special.
We just wanted to write to thank you for making our wedding reception such a fabulous success, the whole day was like a dream. Our guests commented that the food was the best they have ever had at a wedding! Special thanks to Barbara who was just fabulous on the day, and really went above and beyond for us. Thank you all so much!
Dear Carol and The Harper Team. We had the most wonderful day and could not believe how glorious the weather was! All of my friends told me that as they were waiting for me to walk down the aisle the clouds parted, the sun shone through and a butterfly floated down the aisle just before we entered – remarkable! Barbara was really fantastic on the day and kept us so relaxed and organised – it was a pleasure to have her there guiding us through every moment of the day. We really loved every minute of the day and didn’t want it to end!
Hi Aly, Many thanks for all your help leading up to our wedding day and to the team at Notley who made everything run so smoothly on the day – they even managed to keep most of the rain away! We both had such an amazing day and it was so great to be able to relax knowing that The Harper Team had everything in hand.
I am sorry this is such a belated ‘thank you’. I have now had time to absorb and reflect on the whole event. Every contact with the staff, in whatever capacity, was wonderful. You made my daughter’s wedding day something to remember. Your foresight, care and absolute consideration was truly marvellous – I absolutely mean that. You put us first in every regard. From someone serving champagne right through to the person in charge – World Class! Thank you!
Hi Ann, Thank you SO much for your help planning the wedding and reminding us of all the things we had to do. We had the perfect day, and the staff on the day were amazing at sorting out the hiccups. They were so flexible and accommodating and efficient, it was much more than I could have hoped for! The guests all had a great time, as did we. Also compliments to the chef as everyone raved about the food, particularly the lamb and dessert! The venue looked amazing, (even in the rain) and all the guests loved it.
Hi Maddie, I can’t thank you all enough at Harper weddings and at Notley Abbey for everything you all did to make Charlotte and Tom’s wedding day run so seamlessly and smoothly. It really was a such a beautiful, totally stress free and fantastic day – it surpassed all my dreams and hopes for them – they said they truly had the wedding day of their dreams – and we all had the most amazing and memorable day – thank you all so very much. We would, and many of our guests have said the same, have no hesitation in recommending Notley Abbey and Harper weddings – everybody we have dealt with has been excellent.
A massive thank you to the whole Harper team. Our wedding day was better than perfect, and we’re so happy with how each and every element came together on the day! We live abroad, so having access to the Harper Planner was really incredibly helpful. It makes so much sense to manage the organisation through a transparent platform that both sides always have access to – it removed the need for a lot of questions and clarifications and was very easy to use. It was also very reassuring to have the messaging system and I never had to wait more than a day for a response on there (thank you, Ann!). The wedding day itself was executed by Harper seamlessly.
Hi Ann, Thank you for all your help during the planning process! We had a fantastic day and everything went to plan! Please thanks the staff for all their hard work, it really is an amazing venue!
Carol, We wanted to drop you a quick note to say a huge thank you to you and the whole team at Notley for helping us with what was quite simply a perfect day! We loved every minute and have noted several times over the past few days how we could not have done it without you and the team!
Hello Aly, We just wanted to let you know that we had the most amazing day yesterday, everything was perfect and we feel very lucky to have been married in such a beautiful place! Thank you for all you help and hard work, which meant we were able to enjoy our big day and not worry!
Dear Ann, THANK YOU for being a pillar of support to us in the run up to our big day – you were fantastic and I’m not sure we would have had the perfect day without you. Your quick email responses and helpful advice provided so much reassurance and helped to calm the nerves. We were delighted with the whole day, something we will never forget!
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the following day the service, professionalism and dedication to doing an outstanding job for us shone through. Every guest we spoke to commented on the fantastic service and the amazing food, a big thank you to the chef also! Scott and I are truly grateful for your help in making everything run smoothly on the day. You helped make it very special for us, something we will never forget.
Hello Ann, We just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at Notley for giving us the most amazing wedding day – we really couldn’t have asked for any more – it was perfect! We are just now starting to get back to reality! The very best wishes to all!
We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. We had the most wonderful, wonderful day and all of our friends and family had so much fun. Thank you so much for your support and patience leading up to the day.
I just wanted to say a big thank your team who were present on Jessica and Sam’s wedding day. Jack and the young members of staff in particular were absolutely fantastic and so accommodating – they helped so much on the Thursday as well as the wedding day itself in terms of moving furniture, etc. All of them were very friendly and willing to go the extra mile to ensure Jessica and Sam’s wedding day ran as smoothly as possible, particularly Jack.
We had an absolutely amazing time at our wedding! We are very happy and pleased. All our guests loved Notley Abbey as much as we did and they all said how well organised everything was and how professional and pleasant the staff was, as well as how great the food and wine was. We would like to thank you as well for all work, it’s been a pleasure working with you, and you’ve made sure to always help us in the best and most efficient way. Working with you and hosting our wedding at Notley Abbey has been a great experience that we will cherish in the years to come.
We had a wonderful day and I am sure Katy & Matt will be in touch on their return from honeymoon. We could not have wished for more – many guests were saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to, which obviously made us very happy indeed. Dean and his team were so professional, kind and friendly at all times. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
We had such a fantastic day and it all ran so smoothly thanks to the amazing team at Cain Manor, we cannot thank them enough for everything they did leading up to the wedding and on the day itself. We have had friends say that it was the best wedding they have ever been to and could we please get divorced and do it all again!
On Monday we had the pleasure of celebrating our daughter’s wedding at Cain Manor. It is a beautiful venue many of our guests commented on how lovely it is. For us a very special day was made even more so by your extremely friendly, professional and courteous staff, one and all they did a superb job. We wanted to thank you for all your support leading up to and particularly on our wedding day, you all went above and beyond to ensure we had the best day and we are so so grateful!
Firstly we want to say an absolutely massive thank you ! Our wedding day last Sunday at Cain Manor was totally perfect, our guests all loved the venue and are still raving about the food, please pass on our thanks to the chef. Your staff were all so professional and the day ran so smoothly. Special thanks must go to Sienna, Emily and Jonny – they all worked tirelessly to make our day everything we wanted and more. Please pass them all our thanks.
Just a quick and enormous thank you to all of the wonderful staff at Cain Manor who made our wedding day on Saturday so special. The staff all day and evening on Saturday, and Sunday morning too were incredible. Very well done and a huge thank you to the whole team.
Thank you so much Holly for all your help, you were amazing from the beginning and throughout the process. Accommodating all of our requests, ensuring it seemed like nothing was an issue. You put our minds at ease at every corner. On the day, the staff were amazing. I don’t know how anyone gets through a wedding without Barbara. She knew exactly what was going on everywhere, ensured everything ran on time, explained everything we needed to know, and managed a perfect balance of in control, calm yet still incredibly friendly, approachable, and fun. In short: thank you for giving us the perfect day!
The wedding day was brilliant, and we just wanted to say that the Harper staff were fantastic. When we arrived the wedding party was a bit stressed, but the actions of the staff and in particular the wedding managers calmed us right down and made us all feel so supported and worry free all day. Everything was just taken care of and made to feel so simple! And it wasn’t just the staff, the food and drink were amazing – we wish we could come back and have the canapés again – we just loved the arancini! And the venue itself was just beautiful and perfect – even in the rain!
Ann, We had a really lovely day and wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for making everything in the run up and on the day go so smoothly. Dean was amazing, nothing was too much trouble on the day and he made me feel very relaxed and calm! My family also said he was lovely! We had really lovely comments on the venue and on the food especially!
We had an absolutely fantastic wedding day and Cain Manor completely surpassed our expectations. Our whole experience in working with you in the lead up had been seamless, your quick and helpful replies were always so appreciated. On the day the team were so thoughtful and attentive- so many of our guests said what a fantastic venue it was. Thank you!
Penny and I had a fantastic day, and we would very much like to thank all of your staff for helping us plan the event and in particular all of your event staff who looked after us so admirably well on the day. Many of our guests have made a point of telling us how wonderful the location was and how tentative your team was in providing everything we needed.
We just wanted to thank all the staff at Cain Manor (particularly Siena) for being so attentive and ensuring our Wedding Day ran smoothly. It was a huge success, Jake & I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We have received numerous compliments from our guests about how wonderful the venue was, especially the food and the waiting service. We would definitely recommend Harper weddings and your preferred suppliers that we engaged with.
From start to finish we received first class service from all involved. Jennifer was brilliant when responding to our questions and helping plan our day. Dean was very helpful when we went for our food tasting and Siena couldn’t have been more professional, fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for her and the team on our day. It was also a nice touch that John introduced himself in the evening if we needed him. Not only was the venue the perfect setting but all of the staff from the waiting staff, grounds men and anyone behind the scenes really all played such an important part in making everything run like clockwork.
Ann, I just wanted to say a quick thank you to you and your amazing team for making our day so special with the personal and intimate feel that we wanted. We truly felt like we were at home. Our guests were just in awe of Cain Manor and we have received such wonderful feedback from everyone with regard to the excellent service you provided, the food and the wonderful accommodation. As most couples probably say, we wish we could do it all over again, and we both actually had a tear in our eyes when we left on Sunday morning…we have really enjoyed the whole experience, and I have to say that the planning was made so much easier with your help.
My daughter Gabrielle’s wedding at Cain Manor on Saturday was simply fantastic and I can’t thank your brilliant staff enough for what they did to make it such a special day. It is extremely rare these days to get a service that can only be described as faultless. Siena and her assistant who were masterminding the operation on Saturday were a delight to work with. We had met with Dean on previous visits – and also saw him briefly on Sunday again please thank Dean for making our visits so enjoyable. From the moment we arrived on Saturday your staff were waiting at the front door to greet us and show us to our rooms. This immediately created a “feel good factor”.
We can not thank you enough for how smoothly our day ran – it was seamless. You exceeded our expectations and every single member of your staff team remained professional at all times. You are so kind and made me feel that nothing was too much to ask (not that I had to ask much as it went exactly as planned). It certainly was worth every effort put it and I can see why your price points are higher than other’s I’ve looked at. You are on another level, I felt very special.
We wanted to thank you for all your support leading up to and particularly on our wedding day, you all went above and beyond to ensure we had the best day and we are so so grateful!
We wanted to pass on our thanks to you all for making our wedding day run seamlessly. Everyone was very helpful, polite and attentive. Dean & Louise throughout the day and the following morning were just so kind and professional. You’re all a great credit to the Harper Team. Jon was a real star in the evening, chatting with guests and being really helpful throughout. Thanks again, and Ann we both really appreciate everything you‘ve done over the course of planning our wedding day.
Well its now been a week since we got married and Will and I just wanted to say thanks so much for all your help in the lead up to the big day. You were such a great help and really appreciate everything you (and the rest of the team) did for us.
We had a perfect day and cannot thank everyone at Cain Manor for making our wedding so very special. We are currently in Paris on our mini moon and it’s so very hot!
All the guests loved the food, loved the venue… and not forgetting the most amazing sunset!
Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special, for being attentive to each and every one of us throughout the day and for ensuring everything ran smoothly. Our entire day was absolutely magical and we would like to give a special thank you to Maddie for helping us throughout the months leading up to our wedding day with our wedding planner and answering any questions we have had along the way.
Dear Harper Team, We just wanted to say how impressed we were with the service, before the wedding and on our wedding day. We received nothing but amazing feedback from everyone about the venue, food and professional service, and I hope that you also heard this. Thank you to the team on the day, including Caitlin, Dean and John and all the Harper staff as well for helping everything to run so smoothly, and I am also sure that Maddie’s conscientiousness was key to this.
Dear Maddie, Just a quick note to say a huge thank you to you, and all involved at Cain Manor for the hard work that went into running our wedding on April 21st, 2018. We honestly could not have had a better day, everything went perfectly and ran seamlessly. We received so many compliments from our guests on the beautiful venue both inside and out, the absolutely delicious food, and the service received from the staff on the day. I can’t recommend the venue highly enough.
First of all, we would like to say a massive thank you to all of you at Harper, both from the online support to those working on the day (Ella and Dean were wonderful!). You couldn’t have made the day run any smoother than it did and everyone was so keen to help – from having our own personal canapé tray to unlocking the pool in the morning, we felt so loved by the team! Everyone was very professional and friendly in their manner and made our day unforgettable.
The day ran incredibly smoothly and we cannot fault a thing. Everyone was extremely efficient and well trained in how to serve guests throughout the day. Set up was made very easy and quick due to the helpful staff ensuring suppliers knew what to do and making sure everything looked beautiful. You also kindly checked on myself and the groom throughout the day to make sure we were kept happy and calm. Numerous guests commented on how successful the day was and what a lovely feel there was and this is all down to you and how well your systems work.
I just wanted to say thank you so much to all of you for helping with my wedding planning, answering numerous questions that I would fire at you and to making sure we had a fabulous day! A special thank you to Carol, John, Sienna and Dean. You were all amazing!
Our wedding day was simply perfect and we were thrilled we chose Cain Manor as our venue. Everything ran so smoothly, thanks to the brilliant Dean and Rachel, and so many guests commented on the efficiency of the staff and running of the day. The food was simply wonderful and this was echoed by guests. Thank you so much to the whole team at Harper for giving us a wonderful first day of married life!
I would like to thank every member of The Harper Team who made our day so special. Everyone was highly professional and did anything possible to make our day perfect.
My husband and I had the most perfect day at Cain Manor. Many guests commented on how relaxed the day was which was definitely enabled by The Harper Team at Cain Manor helping everything to run smoothly. Setting up the venue when we arrived in the morning was so easy with the help of everyone and the tables looked beautiful – just as we’d hoped.
We had a fantastic day at Cain Manor and our guests commented over and over again on how beautiful the venue was and how good the food was. In particular, we would like to say a massive thank you to our event manager on the day, Dean. We both really felt that he went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect and he’s a true credit to the Harper Wedding Service. From remembering an entire list of instructions I listed to him, to fastening buttonholes, putting the entire grooms party pocket squares on and making sure we had time to ourselves on the day – he was truly amazing. Thank you again for an amazing day!
Hi Dean, We wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone for making our special day totally wonderful. The team at Cain manor were amazing and made everything ran so smoothly. We had a brilliant day. Everyone commented on how good the food was and what an amazing place Cain Manor is and how great all the service was. Thank you so much.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Harper and Cain Manor for their help and excellent service. We had the most amazing day and everything went perfectly. From the moment we arrived at the venue until we left the following day, the level of service we received from every member of staff was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and this ensured that everything ran smoothly giving us the opportunity to relax and fully enjoy our special day. We lost count of the number of guests who commented on the venue and service, saying it was the best, most well organised wedding they’d attended.
Maddie, Thanks to you and the Cain Manor team for an amazing event – everything went absolutely to plan and the team on the day couldn’t have been more helpful in making our day amazing.
We absolutely loved the venue and it worked perfectly for us – we had so many guests asking us where we found such a beautiful venue! Our planner, Aly was just superb, she left no stone un-turned and made some great suggestions. The food was absolutely superb – the quality was incredibly high and the team dealt with my dietary requirements and those of others incredibly well. Congratulations.
It really was the most perfect day and everything could not have been better. Food was incredible, staff were incredible and you even managed to make the sun shine!!!! Amazing day, we are still on a high!
The day was perfect, everything Becky and Dave wanted. We would recommend you to anyone without hesitation. Moreover, the planning for the day was faultless and we would like to place on record our appreciation of, and thanks for the excellent service we received from our designated planner Aly. She was brilliant!
Every guest was praising the venue and they all felt that it was one of the classiest weddings they’ve attended. We can’t thank you enough for the effort you put in with us, for what ended up being an intense month of last minute changes and preparations! Thank you especially for conveying all our messages regarding the menu – the food was fantastic and was very well received.
Hi Ann, Thanks to you and your team for a brilliant day last week at Cain Manor, we had such a magical day, your team looked after us so well, and even the weather smiled on us!
Hi Maddie, Thanks so much for all your help planning our wedding. The Harper staff were brilliant and we had a fantastic day – it couldn’t have gone any better.
Hi Ann, James and I would like to thank you and all the team at Cain Manor for helping make our wedding day incredible. The way the team manages the whole day is amazing and it all went so smoothly and many of our guest were extremely complimentary about the service. We will do a proper review when we are home, but all your help in the lead up was greatly appreciated and all the hard work you guys put in really does show!
My husband and I wish to pass on our grateful thanks and congratulations to the whole team at Cain Manor. The entire day was as professionally managed as the planning so that the couple and our guests fully enjoyed themselves and we were able to relax to! Well done indeed!
Hi Ann, We’re back and well rested from our honeymoon and just wish to send a big thank you to you and the team – we had such a wonderful day at Cain Manor, it surpassed all our expectations.
Ann was super lovely, patient and professional throughout the whole planning process and the online system (although I’m not very techy) was easy to use and so thorough. On the day Anica and Georgia totally looked after us and with all my gittery excitement I felt like I was in safe hands! Their organisational skills were impeccable! We should also mention the lovely reception staff and we enjoyed watching their synchronised serving! When the evening manager took over, the day continued with a relaxed and fun vibe right through to the nightcap for the staying guests. Overall we were honestly so impressed with the organisation and professionalism of the team, delivered in an understated, non interfering way! The Harper Team really were a big part of why the day went so well.
Hi Maddie, Thanks again for all your help with organising the wedding – it all went smoothly on the day and everyone enjoyed themselves as well, so thank you for your help in making it a great success! We have just returned from our honeymoon in Canada and it was an incredible fortnight of bears, whales and bright blue lakes.
We had the most incredible day!! It was amazing from start to finish and couldn’t have asked for anything more. So many of our guests commented on the beautiful venue, how professional and seamless the service was and on the high quality of the food. Both Tom and I felt like a king and queen for the day, which was fabulous and mostly down to the staff at Cain Manor.
Thank you and the team for all your hard work on the day, we couldn’t have asked for a better day, everything went perfectly to plan. The team were very friendly yet extremely professional and helped us keep the day ticking along. I was particularly impressed with having our own plate of canapés considering the fact that we were too busy taking photos/talking people to chase them down!
From the minute we arrived at Cain Manor on the day the stress just lifted, we knew from the day we visited it was the right venue for us and we were totally right. Thank you again to everyone at Cain Manor & Harper Weddings for making our day so very special, it was everything we had hoped it would be.
Thank you so much Harper Team! We had a wonderful day and would not have changed a thing! All the guests enjoyed it and have been talking about it since. Georgia, thanks for being there on the day and Maddie thanks for helping us set the whole thing up!
We just like to say a huge thanks to everyone who put so much effort into making the day so special. Our wedding planner Aly was absolutely fantastic and she made sure the whole day went exactly how we wanted it. The food especially was amazing and all our guests commented on how well it all went. As the bride and groom, we had the most wonderful day and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the venue to anyone looking to get married!
On behalf of my Husband Lee and I, we just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you, Emma, and the team for all your hard work and professionalism in making our wedding just lovely. The feedback I have had from family and friends on the food the staffs synchronisation and the lovely layout of Cain Manor itself has been amazing – we cannot thank you enough!
Charlie and I would just like to thank everyone at Cain Manor for an amazing day. We couldn’t have wished for a better wedding, the attention to detail was superb. We have had such lovely comments about the food and venue, so thank you once again.
We had the BEST day we could have asked for. Thank you for all your hard work helping to ensure everything ran smoothly on they day – it sure paid off. Please send a heartfelt thank you to Georgia, Dean and the rest of the team on the day for providing the most amazing service. We all had an amazing time and couldn’t have asked for anything more! Oh, and of course the sun was shining too!!
Hi Ann, We both just wanted to say a big thank you to you, and The Harper Team, for making our wedding day such a special occasion for us. The staff on the day were excellent and the young lady who co-ordinated the wedding at the start of the day was superb!
I want to start by saying we had the most amazing day on Saturday. It was faultless and we loved every second. Your staff could not do enough for us. Thanks for the best day ever.
From the very beginning of the day the staff were on hand to help and nothing was too much. The waiters/waitresses were absolutely amazing and so professional. My aim was to have the wedding of my dreams and you all ensured that dream came true. My guests all commented on how spectacular the venue and the staff were on the day. Myself and Martin are truly grateful for everything you done for us, we will never forget our magical wedding day and we thank you ALL from the bottom of our hearts.
We just want to thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts for helping us have a perfect day. The staff were absolutely incredible from beginning to end and were integral to everything going off without a hitch! The two leads for the day and our MC in particular were incredibly friendly and our family and friends all commented on what the professional service they received.
From the moment we viewed the venue back in September his sister and I knew it was the venue for them. Megs had found you from Australia but it was too far to view and amazingly just down the road from us in Windlesham. It truly is a remarkable venue and all the staff are amazing, the food delicious and bedrooms out of this world. Please pass on our thanks to Jo, Mark and Sam and the rest of the team on the day and again at breakfast.
Our wedding on December 20th was perfect from start to finish and that wouldn’t have been possible without your whole team. You exceeded our expectations in so many ways and it wouldn’t have been the day it was without all your help. I wanted to say a special thank you to Maddie, with all her help in the process, and to the 2 very kind ladies that helped me throughout the day. Everyone commented on how fantastic the venue was so thank you.
Saturday was unbelievable, and it wouldn’t have been possible without everyone who’s been involved from Botleys, from start to finish. From Emma, who at the outset, made us believe a crazy pipedream (with 3 months to do it!) was doable, to Maddie, for being so brilliant at responding to our queries, big and small, and pulling everything together to make sure we got there on the big day, to Guy, Dan and Rachel (and all of the staff around them), on the day, and beforehand, for being the most genuine, attentive, supportive, and brilliant guys, and making sure the day ran smoothly.
We would just like to say a massive thank you to all of the wedding planning team for helping to make our day extra special. The food was amazing and the whole atmosphere was everything and more. You were all very polite, attentive and friendly. Thank you for giving us a day our guests and ourselves will cherish forever.
We would just to say a massive thank you to you all at Botleys for making yesterday the best day our daughter could have wished for. From the moment we first viewed the Mansion up until we checked out today you were all so helpful and accommodating. Dan, Guy and all staff were amazing. Again a massive thank you and will be recommending you to everyone.
We had the most amazing day!! Not so much sun during the day but at least it meant it wasn’t too hot, and there was no rain which meant everyone could enjoy the gardens and make the most of being outside. Please give our thanks to Antonio and all the staff, everyone was so helpful and amazingly well-organised, it made our day flow beautifully and everyone loved the venue. The food was definitely a hit too! Thank you!!
Thank you all so much for making my daughter’s wedding everything we had hoped and planned for. It was an amazing day in a stunning venue with staff who were so professional and welcoming. They guided us calmly through the day and everything went smoothly. The chef deserves a special thanks as everyone enjoyed the delicious food which was promptly served to all the guests. You gave us a day to remember. We were able to relax and have fun. It was everything I had dreamt for Anna and Graeme’s wedding day and I cannot thank you enough.
A huge thanks for all your hard work helping us along the way with the planning process to ensure everything went so smoothly. We could not have done it without you all. So professional and attentive we could not have asked for any more and could not have imagined it any better. We want to give special thanks to the members of staff who were there on the day. I honestly cannot recommend you all enough. You were all so kind and friendly to us on the day and we felt like we were in a dream.
Tom and I wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the whole Harper team for making our day such a success. Everything went perfectly and we couldn’t have asked for anything more!
Thank you to all of the staff at Botleys Mansion who were involved in Charley and Sam’s wedding on Friday 14th September. Every one of you helped to make it a truly magical event from start to finish. We’ve had such wonderful feedback from those who attended.
I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you for the help and guidance throughout planning our wedding, right up to the moment I walked down the aisle and when we had breakfast the following morning. Words cannot explain how brilliant and helpful your staff were. The planning stages were made so simple with the easy to use planning website, something I logged into most evenings! On the day the whole team knew everything that was happening hour by hour, the process was very regimented and worked absolute wonders. I want to thank you again for all making such an important day for us, just perfect!
Maddie. We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the team at Harper / Botleys. We had the BEST day, everything was perfect and it all went exactly to plan. We had so many lovely comments from friends and family about the venue, the service and the food.
Ann, Thank you so much for all your hard work we had the most incredible day! You and the team on the day were fantastic. The food & cocktails were delicious, so please do thank the chef & the bar teams. And please pass on our thanks to the entire serving team who worked on the day.
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team that helped make yesterday an absolutely amazing day, it was everything and more that we ever imagined and none of it would be possible without you guys! Your staff are an absolute credit to the Harper brand and they were all impeccable in their service! Guy and his team were lovely, and the two ladies who were with me throughout the morning were equally amazing and very reassuring! The food was spectacular and everyone commented saying the same!
We can’t thank you enough for a truly memorable day which even exceeded our expectations. The service from the staff at Botleys was impeccable and nothing was too much trouble. Both Rachel and Dan contributed tellingly to the smooth running of the day and ensured that everything ran like clockwork.
It was a truly magical day and we cannot thank the staff and the Harper planners enough for their constant support and help through the planning stages and also on the day itself. We couldn’t have wished for a better day. You all went above and beyond to cater to our every need and we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!
Hi Ann, A huge thanks to you and the team for making our day so special. The weather was incredibly kind to us and we had an absolutely amazing day. Please thank everyone involved.
The biggest thank you to everyone at Botleys Mansion, we had the most wonderful wedding day and all the staff could not have been more helpful and efficient. The venue was absolutely stunning!! Thank you so so much again for making our day so special!!
Hi Ann. We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all the team who made our day such a special success. We are so pleased with how the day went, our guests were completely blown away and everyone told us it was the best Wedding they had ever been to. The sun was beaming down on us and all of our guests the entire day and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We can’t thank you enough.
We wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for everything that you and the team did for our day on Friday. We thought it would be great but it exceeded our wildest dreams. We had the best day. The number of compliments we’ve got from people on how beautiful the venue was and how great the food was have been too many to count! Thank you so much for such a great day. Thanks again for all your help and to the whole team for making our day so memorable.
We wish to write to you to say a big thank you for ensuring our wedding day went so smoothly. We had a fab memorable day and the the house and staff were all part of that.
Special thanks to Emma for having to deal with all my emails timely; to the two Sarah’s (especially evening Sarah for handling the drag DJ with a great sense of humour); and lastly Guy, who was there ensuring all was set up and coming to the rescue in fixing the button holes. The guests all commented on how amazing the house looked and how tentative the staff were during the wedding reception.
We Just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for helping us achieve the best day of our lives. The day was amazing and everything that we could have asked for. The support and help we received from the staff in the lead up to and on the day was exceptional, and we would like to say a special thank you to Rachel who was the manager on the day and Maddie for her help in the planning process. Thank you again so much.
We are still on cloud 9 following the perfect day on Friday. Our wedding was everything we could have wanted and more – partly due to our friends, family (and the fantastic weather!) and partly due to the exceptional service Botleys staff provided on the day. They judged everything extremely well, there was never an empty glass or a lull in proceedings. Our guests were very happy and we were too. Special mention should go to the chefs – the meal was even better that at the tasting day! Thank you again for all your help, we only wish we could have slowed the day down and made it last longer, it went by in a flash.
We had an absolutely amazing day and are so grateful to everybody there as it all went so smoothly, professionally and thoughtfully. We particularly wanted to thank Sarah as she was awesome on the day – really really helpful and so many people commented to us about her. The venue itself is gorgeous and makes the whole day really special – lots of people say it’s the best venue they’ve been to. The food was delicious – from the canapés to the wedding breakfast, the bacon butties and the breakfast the next morning.
Hi Maddie, I just want to say a massive thank you for all your help planning our wedding! It was honestly a dream day for the both of us and we loved it.
We had the most amazing day and look back on our day with the happiest of memories. Our wedding planner Aly was amazing from start to finish and a big shout out to Guy. We met him on our very first visit to Botleys Mansion and he was there for every one of our tours, meetings, tasting and on our wedding day.
To Carol, Guy, Sarah, Sarah and the rest of the team! Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you very much for all your efforts to make our wedding day in April so special. We really had the best day and the venue was just perfect – as was the weather. Thank you again.
A MASSIVE thank you to the team on the day for making our day so seamless and amazing. We had a fantastic time!
A huge thank you to Sarah, Sarah and Guy – they were all so attentive and made sure the day ran on time. We are so grateful for all their help on the day and of course for keeping our bubbles topped up! The food was great and all of our guests commented – our compliments to the chef. You really have a fabulous team at Harper and every single staff member at Botleys. Thanks again!
We just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for a wonderful day yesterday. Everything was really painless and enjoyable and all the staff were eager to help whenever they could. Could you also pass on compliments to the chef as the food (the main in particular) received quite a number of rave reviews during the evening.
Please pass on our sincerest gratitude to all the waiting and bar staff that worked on our day, all of whom performed their duties to the very highest level of professionalism. Everyone commented on how stunning the venue was, which was framed beautifully by the very pleasant weather (we were very lucky in that department), and how great the day was overall. I should also give a special mention to the chefs and catering. The food was good on our taster/testing sessions, but was utterly sublime on the day itself. The lamb was absolutely perfect, the starter great, and the desserts – considerably larger than anticipated – went down superbly.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for making our day absolutely perfect you all are the best!
Carol, we just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for making our day so amazing! The guests were blown away with how gorgeous the venue was and how helpful the team were on the day! A big thank you to you too for all the planning and organising – it was so stress free for us…amazing!
We literally had the best day ever! All of your help, effort and knowledge over the last 18 months has been outstanding, your staff on the day were incredible, they knew exactly what was happening minute by minute and made the day go so smoothly! Please can you pass on our hugest thanks to Rachel and Guy, they were absolutely brilliant, I can’t fault them at all, they had totally memorised our 9-page wedding call sheet document and knew it better than we did!
Thank you for your help in the lead up to the wedding and for everyone’s help on the day itself, Vince and I had the most perfect day. It really was amazing.
We just wanted to thank you for everything you did over our wedding planning time – we had a wonderful day and your team were truly excellent in looking after us! The day could not have gone any better.
Every detail was thought of and catered for and we are grateful that everything was done to the highest standard. All of our guests were extremely impressed with how everything was catered for and the quality of the food and service by your team. Kindly thank all the members of staff that were on duty that day, especially The Master of Ceremony/event planner Guy, he was brilliant. We had a few particular guests, the fact that they all were complimentary is a testimony in itself.
Hi Ann, Just to say that we were blown away by the service at Botleys Mansion from yourself and your team during the planning, assistance and continuous communication prior to our Wedding and the invaluable help, advice and support by Barbs and her team on the day. The food was incredible, the timings were impeccable and the service was second to none. We truly couldn’t have wished for a better, more magical day (and the weather was perfect!). Thank you.
Sam and I would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff at Botleys for such a wonderful day! We would also like to thank Ann for all the help with the planning. We had such an amazing day and everyone commented on how amazing the venue was. We have been told by every guest that it was the best venue they have ever been to.
Thank you for making our day run so smoothly, it was absolutely wonderful and surpassed all expectations. The food was amazing and far better than we’d even dared to hope, everyone remarked on how amazing the lamb tasted with just the right hint of a little kick and flavour.
Sunday was fantastic, and so were Barbara, Sarah and Guy. Thank you very much for all your help with the arrangements for our wedding. The Harper Team are the best in the business and we would recommend you to anyone.
We just wanted to drop you a note to say that we had the most wonderful day on Saturday 4th June. It was everything we had hoped for and more! The Sarah T, Sarah D, Guy and the team were fantastic and everything ran without a hitch! The pork pie cake was a massive hit and absolutely delicious! Thanks again to you and all the team at Botleys for helping to make our day magical!
We would both like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in making our big day everything we could have hoped for. Upon our very first trip to Botleys Mansion, we were told that we would struggle to find a service and venue that matched anything offered by Harper – you were not wrong!
Just wanted to message on behalf of my new husband and I, to let you know how amazing our wedding day was! We had such nice weather and it all went perfectly! Botleys was a stunning venue the food was top notch and staff were amazing so thank you!
I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the way you handled my daughter Victoria’s wedding day at Botleys Mansion on Sunday 31st July. From the moment we arrived you gave us a warm welcome and seemed to be ever present, calm and just downright helpful.
Just writing to thank you for allowing us to have the most incredible day imaginable. The setting itself really was the stuff that dreams are made of. My sister has already started worrying that she won’t be able to find a comparable venue for her future wedding.
Hi Emma, We just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to you and the team on the day. You have been so helpful with the planning process and the team on the day were unbelievable!! Everybody commented on how smoothly the day ran and it was just the most perfect day ever. Thank you again! We are still on cloud 9.
Thank you so much for all your help in planning our wedding. Stuart and I had the best day on Saturday and it was in large part from all your help in thinking through the logistics and all your help with our planner. Lisa, Sarah and Guy were also wonderful on the day and just made everything run so smoothly. Thank you so much to all!
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help planning and organising our wedding. Everything went so smoothly and we wouldn’t have changed a single aspect of the day.
A huge thank you to everyone who helped us prepare for and carry out our wedding. It was such a wonderful day and we had so many people come up and rave about the venue and the service. It was really amazing. Special thanks to Holly for making sure we got all the bits and pieces just as we wanted them. It was everything we hoped it would be!
Mercy & Tom
