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.

Wow, we are not even sure where to start with our review of Gosfield Hall Wedding Venue!! Absolutely everything was incredible!! We got married here on Saturday 22nd May 2021.
Having looked at dozens of venues online we came across this beautiful venue. The pictures looked incredible, such a beautiful location and such a beautiful venue.
We both fell in love with the look and feel of the venue over pictures alone, but not being too naive we also wanted to have some sort of look around the place. We contacted Gosfiled Hall and they luckily had a open day that upcoming weekend.
When we actually got to see the venue we were absolutely blown away!! Even the most beautiful pictures still don’t seem to do justice for how beautiful of a location it is. The whole place just has a magical feeling to it. We knew there and then that this was the one and only Wedding venue for us.
Our Wedding Manager Catherine Yarrow was absolutely outstanding!! We cannot thank her enough. Catherine was there to quickly respond to all our emails and give useful and friendly advice for everything.
Gosfield Hall work very closely with the vendors they recommend and for good reason. Their operation is smooth and slick, the co-ordination they have with their staff and vendors is amazing. It was an incredible feeling to know that we could relax and enjoy our day knowing everything was going smoothly and our guests were all enjoying themselves. We never had to keep track of time, Catherine was there making sure everything was running smoothly and on time.
We highly recommend Gosfield Hall and all of it’s staff!! Lucy Mannering the Venue Manager was also incredibly helpful and supportive, especially during the Covid pandemic, whereby we had to move our Wedding date 4 times. From the start Gosfiled Hall worked with us to accommodate our every need. Everything felt so personal and dedicated to us, devoted to making our day as incredible as it could be. They worked with us to create something that fit into our budget, giving us multiple options and we never pressured into something we felt uncomfortable with.
I think what makes Gosfield Hall such an incredible place is how personal everything is. From the moment we first made contact with Catherine through to leaving the day after our wedding everything was just perfect!! The venue is stunning!! We truly experienced a fairy-tale wedding at Gosfield Hall.
Thank you Lucy and Catherine, you made our wedding day the most special day of our lives.

Good afternoon,

I hope you are well.

Charlotte and I just wanted to give our sincere thanks to both of you for everything you did to help our wedding to go ahead last Wednesday, both in the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself.

We had a really wonderful day and you were always on hand to help with anything you could, and ensure that the guests knew where they needed to be throughout. Everyone commented to us afterwards about how lovely everybody had been at the venue, and we 100% felt the same.

We’re looking forward to a very different day next August and hopefully you’ll both be there too.

Until then, thanks again and we wish you all the best.
