Hi James.  

Well it was an epic wedding and absolutely everything worked out thanks to your incredible staff. 

I enjoyed every moment planning it and it was so surreal to see how it all worked out. 

Always on hand to help and the professional teams said you were friendly and relaxed. Exactly what you need in an events coordinator.

Hi James,

You thought of every detail and made us feel massively confident that all was going to be as brilliant as it was from the minute we first met you.

If you could pass on our thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make sure we had a great time, we’d be hugely grateful. Every single person from the bar staff and doormen to the cleaners and security staff were really friendly, hugely professional and very supportive throughout the evening.  Plus the food was outstanding, as many people have said. Our chefs from Forest Green Rovers were mightily impressed. Please do thank Russell and his team– I had the curry, which was brilliant. There’s also been a lot of talk today about the ‘amazing’ sushi.. J

We would obviously love to keep in touch with regards to future events and opportunities. In the meantime, you must all be exhausted and looking forward to the Christmas break so I’ll leave you in peace for now!

Dear James

I just wanted to thank you and your team for your hard work at Bethan and Rob’s wedding. The whole event was perfect and everyone had a wonderful time. Bethan and Rob couldn’t have hoped for more.

Thank you again.

Kind regards

Hi James

I have been away since then, but wanted to thank you for an excellent evening on 18 February and the very efficient way in which you and everyone at Westonbirt handled this throughout. Probably the best way of thanking you is to quote from some of the many emails we have had since:

"Thank you and the committee so much for a wonderful evening on Saturday.  The Phoenix Ball couldn’t have been more fun and it was fabulous to be at Westonbirt with its magnificent ballroom"

"It was great fun and in a splendid setting; dinner was delicious too"

"This year, certainly, the dinner was the finest ever and to dance in effectively a very grand private home with cars parked immediately outside, was a complete joy.  Also the staff were so nice"

"The organisation was magnificent, the food was superb"

"It was the best Phoenix Ball I have been to with the most delicious food"

"Chicken dish was excellent with a delicious sauce.  Do please pass on my congratulations"

"Westonbirt was a perfect location and you created a wonderful atmosphere. Dancing in that beautiful wood paneled room was a huge treat.  Great band ..... delicious dinner .... and fun company.

Westonbirt was an inspired choice of venue with its ornate rooms and plenty of space for dancing. The band we know well and were excellent as always, and we had the most delicious dinner. Altogether a fabulous party"

Please pass this on to those who were involved. 

My wife and son and I much enjoyed it, and they were also conscious of R S Holford looking down on his great granddaughter and great great grandson dancing below him – they hope with approval.  We also hope some of our guests will organise something else at Westonbirt one day and invite us!”

Dear James, Sinan and the rest of the team at Westonbirt,

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day super special. e know everyone says it but it truly was the best day of our lives. Thank you for taking on board and accommodating all of our weird and wonderful requests and organising everything so brilliantly. We absolutely loved the food and you have received many compliments from the guests on everything from canapes to main course, chocolates and beyond. We really enjoyed every bit of the process of planning and doing the day – we are so sad it’s over.

Dear James, Sinan, Jane and all the team at Westonbirt,

Thank you so much for making Abbi and Adam’s wedding day so very special.  Everyone was so friendly and accommodating, ensuring that the day ran smoothly.  As Abbi said as she left on the Saturday night, “that was the best day”.  From the first time we visited Westonbirt we were smitten.  Abbi had said she wanted to get married at Downton and this couldn’t have been more perfect. It was brilliant how you helped their ideas evolve over the course of several visits / planning meetings and the tasting session.  You were incredible, sorting out all the fine details and putting everything in place (we never did find out what happened to the gel pens!).  Nothing was too much trouble, though it’s now clear it’s best NOT to have tea lights alongside menus on the tables!

We must pass on our special thanks to your chefs and the kitchen staff; we were all so impressed by the exceptionally high quality of the food and its presentation, particularly as there were 120 of us. We were so fortunate with the weather too; having the beautiful sunshine enabled guests to enjoy the spectacular grounds and I know Dan, the photographer, was excited at getting so many brilliant shots outside in what he described as “magical lighting”; and with it being cold we were able to appreciate the roaring log fires, such an impressive feature of the school.

A beautiful venue, super staff and awesome food.

Thank you,

Dear everyone at Westonbirt who made our wedding so perfect

Our wedding was everything we had hoped for and more. Everything ran smoothly, yet everything was relaxed, nothing was too much trouble. Our guests commented how amazing the house and food was – really brilliant! James and Sinan, thank you for all your hard work and answering our many, many questions in the run up to the big day.

Best wishes,

Hi James

Firstly, thank you for an amazingly awesome day.  Vijay and I are over the moon with how our wedding day went. It was above and beyond what we had hoped for and it was down to you and your team working your socks off- thank you so much. Everyone was very impressed with the building and grounds: Hogworts and Downton abbey were both comparisons that guests mentioned.

Many thanks again,

Hi James

I just would like to say once again a huge thank you for helping us make Hattie and Matt’s wedding all they had dreamed of and more.

Everyone we spoke to thought that the venue, food and day itself could not have been better. I cannot imagine how you or your wonderful team could improve on what you do, everyone was so kind and accommodating, ensuring that the day ran smoothly and felt so relaxed.

Your chef and his team need to know that guests were very impressed by the extremely high quality of the food and its presentation.

Thank you so much

Dear James

We wanted to write to express our very deep and sincere thanks you, Jackie, our toast master for the day (apologies my mind has gone blank on the gentleman’s name), the chefs, bar staff and everyone else at Westonbirt who helped give us the most WONDERFUL day of our lives. We can not express enough how happy we were with everything. The day ran super smoothly, with all our previous planning coming together seamlessly. Even on the day, any requests we had (needle and thread!!) were dealt with super quick efficiency and discreetly.

We have since heard our guests felt initially speechless as they came down the driveway towards Westonbirt and entered the beautiful building for the day. Everyone commented how the day simply flowed without any idea of the hard work going on behind the scenes which I thought was a true credit to the professionalism of the Westonbirt team.

What can I say….a truly wonderful venue & team. We can not express how much everything about the day and leading up to it exceeded our expectations. The food, the decoration, the help, your lovely wine selection (thank you) absolutely everything. James enjoyed the red wine especially and said it was very good!

I could not fault anything and felt like I was absolutely floating on air the whole day and evening! The only mistake we made was having photos outside during desert so apparently we missed out on a very unusual, but beautiful desert which got very exceptional ratings!

Thank you so much for everything you did for us James, it was obvious to us how much passion you have for the weddings, the venue and the individual couples which was a very unique and special approach which was gratefully received. It was a real pleasure spending time with you arranging our very special day. I knew we were in safe hands the very first time we met :).

We would love to stay in touch and possibly take you up on the offer to arrange to pop in and have another walk around the venue the next time my parents are down in the area so they can truly soak up the area and building itself.

I have attached a couple of photos for interest. We have over 400 from our photographer which has been fabulous to look through. Happy to share some more if they would be of any interest.

So thank you, thank you and the team from the bottom of our hearts for helping us have the very best day of our lives filled with happiness and love! It really was wonderful and super special at Westonbirt. Thank you.

Dear James and the rest of the team,

I would just like to drop a quick email to say a massive thank you for giving us the wedding of our dreams… In fact it exceeded all of our expectations. 
From the day we viewed the venue we were blow away by how beautiful the rooms and the grounds were. Tristan and I cannot thank you enough for all of your help and support throughout the entire process. You were so accommodating with our requests, especially when it came to completely changing the menus for us. All of our guests have said what a beautiful day they had complimented by a truly beautiful venue. Having looked at various options for our big day their wasn’t a single place that compared to the school.

I think we can all agree how blessed we were with the weather!! I really cannot express how pleased we are with how the day went, we wouldn’t of changed a single thing, so thank you.

Many thanks

We would both like to thank you and all the staff for a fantastic day back in June, the service, the food, and of course the venue was fantastic, and all who attended wholeheartedly agreed.

Just a quick note to say thank you to you, Luke and all your staff, you did a wonderful job and everything went perfectly, we are so happy with how you guys managed the day and looked after everything.

The food was absolutely stunning and many guests commented on how perfectly it was cooked and delicious it was; so please pass our thanks onto Jackie and the head chef (sorry, I can’t remember his name) & all the kitchen team. Thanks again, see you soon for a proper chat, we’re off to Cornwall now for a short break and to relax for a few days.

Thanks again!

It’s difficult to find enough words to describe how incredible our wedding day was at Westonbirt House. The building itself is super amazing! Different, historic, magical, beautiful! It certainly Wowed our guests and many saying they were in awe of it and that as they pulled up it was jaw dropping as it is so stunning and impressive. Jackie and Kay were so good with us catering (excuse the pun ) for our every need. On that note the food was out of this world. I have traveled to 17 different countries including Dubai and I can honestly say the belly pork is the best I have ever tasted!!!! We had perfect blue skies and it was warm too The 21st March 2015 is honestly the best day of my life and if we had the chance to live the day all over again we totally would every second of it! Thank you for making the day so special and flowing.

Just wanted to say a massive ‘THANK YOU’ to you and everyone else who made Saturday the most amazing day, it flashed past but we both enjoyed every minute of it (even the 45 minutes I was waiting for Emma at the alter!!).

Everybody we spoke to was extremely complimentary of the food and the general flow of the day and this wouldn’t have been possible without all your hard work…Leigh

Just to reiterate that you and everyone else were fantastic!!!
We had the most incredible day and you even put the sun out for us!!!
