Thank you Gosfield. My daughter had a wonderful wedding experience at your venue. Your staff and facilities were all wonderful.

I’m a pastor and officiate many weddings and Jocie, the wedding coordinator, was probably the best and most gracious wedding coordinator I’ve ever worked with.

Thank you Jocie, you have the perfect approach and positive demeanor to pull off a great wedding.

The food was great and, again, the serving staff were friendly and gracious. I totally recommend Gosfield. It was so impressive to all of our guests and obviously an event we will never forget!!

Where do I start? Thank you so much for an amazing wedding day.

Our guests had so much fun. We couldn’t of asked for a better venue or staff to manage our special day.

Big shout out to Jocie who was AMAZING with everything even through several stressful moments. We will definitely be back for dinner dates soon.

Ellie worked incredibly hard to help make our day as special as it could be and to ensure everything ran smoothly. Anyone else having their wedding at Gosfield is in great hands!

After Friday, everyone can see why Gosfield is such a popular venue to get married. Some of our guests have mentioned they have never been to such a relaxed wedding so its testament to everything you and the team do.

What is really nice is the extra touches that Eillie made throughout the day. Contacting the taxi service and ensuring everything was alright with my family getting to the venue, taking the time to speak to all the quests and get to know them.

We had the best start to married life and we will definitely look to come back!

We had an amazing wedding day with all our family and friends and the sunny weather was the cherry on top of the cake as we got to have the day exactly how we planned it. You are great at what you do, so a big thank you for helping us in the lead-up and for making sure everything ran smoothly on the day. We had multiple guests mention how friendly and helpful you were as well!!

The food was lovely and the think the Pimms station was a hit!

We had a dinner date stayover in Jan and really enjoyed it so sure we will be back again at some point!

Thanks again!

Thank you so much for giving us the best day of our lives, I can’t get over how perfect everything was. You ran the show and guided us through so cool, calm and collected, with such professionalism, but also with such care and kindness too. You really made us feel reassured and so special, and for that I am so grateful.

The entire team were wonderful, the service felt so luxury and 5*, they did a fantastic job and everything ran so smoothly but again not only professional but kind too. The little glances and smiles every so often and congratulations when we came out of the ceremony from the team were just lovely.

The food was amazing, and that pavlova cake was a show stopper! Everyone was so impressed!! The DJ too – I didn’t even notice at one point when the band had stopped and he had started – so seamless and he had people partying until the very end.

Of course then there is the legend that is Gary, what a great guy. Such a character and all round good soul. It was lovely being greeted with such cheer and a few good stories the night before at the lady’s chambers, and then when the wedding officially ended, Gary was so great letting us continue the celebrations, helping us to prolong the amazing day.

The venue is of course beautiful, but the care and attention to detail you and the team provided just made it truly fantastic.

Please pass the message on to everyone, and thank you again for a day we will never forget.

Wishing you and all, every success and happiness for the future.

Just just wanted to send a few words to highlight the fantastic job your team did last Sunday.

From the point of booking with you guys, we were instantly made to feel like royalty, and our first planning meetings with Gaynor were a dream. Unfortunately due to Covid our wedding was delayed for the first time, with Lucy taking the reigns. Again more fantastic customer service in that hard time, always happy to have a chat and work through ideas. Even when we had to reschedule for a second time, again always happy to help and change plans, and discuss any new options we could have. And all the way through had clear ideas of guidelines and was happy to explain!

Now on to the actual day with Faye, what an absolute asset you have with her. Working in hospitality myself I know how much stress she was under, but I cannot fault a single thing throughout the day. She was always there if anyone had any questions, was clear and punctual with moving people and getting everyone in the right place. Happy to push something back for 10 while the photographer wanted us a bit longer. Without her I have no idea how it would have gone. Just a great person all round.

Your housecleaning staff are also to be commended, as keeping your venue clean and tidy must be no small task! But rooms were spotless, grounds and communal areas was well maintained and clean. Just perfect.

During the night Jason was a fantastic DJ, reading the room right and just fitting the mood perfectly.

Overall I cannot think of a SINGLE thing that we weren’t happy with, a fantastic time was had by all and we cannot thank you guys enough. Thank you so much

To all the lovely staff at Gosfield Hall.

Well, what a whirlwind; we are a week married already and it is only just sinking in.

We wanted to take this opportunity to send a message to say thanks to you all, for everything you did to make our wedding day the most amazing day of our lives.

All the emails; the amazing communication that we received from our initial booking, right through Covid and while postponing, right up to the days leading up to wedding itself. You have been amazing.

Everything ran so smoothly on the day and all the minor hiccups with suppliers were dealt with brilliantly, we appreciate that more than we can say.

Stella was a dream to work with and we are so grateful to her for all the running around she did for us to make the day absolutely perfect. Thank you all!

I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you all so very very much for giving my daughter Amy and her new husband Jack the most amazing wedding yesterday.

After so many concerns they had about how the day would be, I am so happy to say they both had the day they had dreamt of. It was amazing. JF Styling added some stunning touches and the whole venue looked simply magical.

A few names I would love to mention are Curtis who looked after the groomsmen the night before and I’m told was amazing and the wonderful Ainsley, their wedding planner, who was outstanding (also her colleague Faye who was shadowing Ainsley). Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were always on hand ensuring everything ran perfectly.

A big thank you again for everything to all your staff. Amy and Jack truly had a wonderful wedding day.
