I got married here 31/08/2018 and it literally was one of the best day of my life (obviously giving birth just about beats it) but it honestly was so amazing, such a beautiful place to get married & we haven’t stopped talking about it since & nor has others!
The staff were amazing! A massive thank you to Keeley, you were brilliant, you made me feel so relaxed on my day & a massive thank you to DJ Richard you were also brilliant, the music was spot on.
I can’t wait to see the pictures & I cannot wait to come back & visit the hall again as I will miss it. Thank you so much xxx

Dear Jan and all the Team,

Sorry it has taken so long, but we wanted to say the biggest, most heartfelt thank you to you all for making our wedding day perfect. It was hard to believe, given recent events, that we could still have an amazing day, but you all made it possible and we will be forever grateful.

Love Mr & Mrs Smith x

We got married at Gosfield Hall on the 6th of August and what a stunning venue it is! There really is no where more beautiful than Gosfield Hall to get married in.

Our whole day was perfect and that was down to our amazing wedding planner Faye Headley – thank you so much Faye for making our day run so smoothly. If any bride-to-be’s are given Faye as their wedding planner, then they are incredibly lucky.

We will remember our day forever and are so pleased that we chose to get married at Gosfield Hall!

As I write this post I feel so emotional that it’s all over. It really is so true when people say it’s over in a flash.

On Friday the 10th August I literally had the most magical day. I can’t put into words how much of an angel Gaynor Pearson was. I literally didn’t want for nothing. From the time my partner and I met her at our meeting right up until the wedding day she was there. Nothing was too much trouble and if I panicked about anything she would be there to reassure me. If you’ve got Gaynor as your planner you’re so very lucky. I wish I could do it all over again. The staff were superb, the food was fantastic and the house is just sensational. Literally a dream wedding venue.

Thank you so much Gosfield Hall!

When we were looking to get married, we did not want a package wedding and the restrictions that we thought would’ve come with it. We looked for a long time at different options and then came across a beautiful looking house that would allow all parts of the celebrations (night before, day/evening and morning after) and when we saw the house in person, we knew we had to go with it.

Keeley our wedding planner made everything so stress free and laid back, for a last minute bride and her groom who’s involvement was almost zero! From start to finish her quiet tone and helpful nature made us feel like we were in good hands. She has just the right level of involvement on the day, there when we needed her and on hand when we didn’t. She went above and beyond what we expected when a certain person was a bit woozy in the toilet – oooops!

Getting into the evening we were greeted by fantastic bar staff, I only wish I knew the name of the young man who seemed to be in charge of the bar. He made sure everyone was served quickly and truly ensured everyone had a good night, we owe the smoothness of the evening to him and are so grateful.

The venue is just second to none, delicious hot food, all the drinks you could want (including bringing in what you don’t have) exclusive use and now we’ve found out, faultless staff.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day amazing!”

At last on the 24th May 2018, the day we had spent 3 years waiting for was finally here. We were so lucky, as the weather was hot and sunny.

The evening before I stayed at my new home with my mum and bridesmaids for a pre-wedding sleep over! Luckily we managed to get to bed on time… well just!

We woke up with lots of excitement to get to the venue!

I always imagined the morning of the wedding to be stressful with all us girls getting ready but it turned out to be so calm and relaxing. We had such a laugh with my mum and the girls as they kept me calm and at ease all morning. Helping me do up my dress, put on my shoes and jewellery. The most special part of the morning was when I opened Ben’s card he had written for me. It was very emotional and made me even more excited that we was only hours away from being married. Ben also surprised me with a Vivian Westwood handbag.

Ben stayed at his best man, James, house the evening before the wedding and arrived at Gosfield hall to freshen up with his groomsman at 11am. I also had left him a card and some Armani cuff links. He got very emotional too bless him. Ben then went downstairs with his groomsmen to greet all of our guests.

Our ceremony took place at 2pm, so before I knew it Ben’s dad had came up to collect me and we were on our way down the stairs to the ceremony room.

I remember I had butterfly’s in my stomach and was so nervous as I walked to the aisle but as soon as I saw Ben’s face, I was fine and we could not stop smiling. Ben got emotional when he saw me, which I loved.

After the ceremony, me and Ben went for a 5 minute drink by ourselves before having our confetti moment in the sun out in the courtyard.

This was a moment we both have said was a favourite, as the courtyard is such a beautiful part of he grounds at Gosfield Hall. I’ve always dreamt of having a confetti moment, so was magical to have ours in real life.

We then went on to have a drink and chat with all of our guests in the sun which was lovely to see everyone who had came to our special day. I remember I kept looking at Ben thinking “I can’t believe your actually my husband now”, it really is the most amazing feeling.

We went off for all of our photos, I enjoyed going for photos alone with Ben and it was another opportunity to have that ” just us moment” walking around the grounds outside together naturally.

We then returned and had our greeting line at the top of the stairs, we were unsure originally on whether to have one or not but we are both so glad we did as it really did give us that chance to speak to every single guest.

Then once all our guests were seated, we were announced in, which I loved walking in holding my new husbands hand.

Once sat down I remember me and Ben looking around seeing everyone sat together happy and laughing and we both said to each other “we can’t believe we did it”, we planned all of this for so long and it’s all came together perfectly. It’s the most rewarding feeling.

Then we had 3 speeches, which were all amazing in there own way!

Onto the most amazing food we have ever tasted, following the wedding we have had so many compliments on the venues food.

We then had some time to greet all of our wonderful evening guests, before the cutting of our cake and onto our first dance.

I loved our first dance as we didn’t plan it or rehearse it, we just went with the flow! I’m so glad we did, as whilst dancing it was like no one else was in the room just us. It was a very happy moment.

Then followed by a whole evening of fun in the photo booth, drinking, dancing and laughing on the dancing floor. We danced until the early hours!

The morning after when I woke up in our beautiful bridal suite next to my new husband, it felt like a dream. The best dream I could of ever had.

Thank you so much Gosfield Hall for giving us both the wedding of our dreams 💗
