A wedding to remember… This wedding venue was delightful.

We attended our nephew’s wedding here and every aspect was stunning. The wedding coordinator was very attentive. We have eaten at a few Michelin star restaurants and this place is up there with them. The beef was mouth-watering. We stayed in one of the family bedrooms and loved the room and views.

If you book your wedding here you will not be disappointed.

Thank you to the whole team for ensuring our wedding day was so special and magical.

The venue is stunning, the food was amazing and the staff were great.

Roberta was simply amazing. As a perfectionist I worried I wouldn’t relax on the day, however, I trusted Roberta so I didn’t worry about a thing. She thought of everything before I had a chance to and we felt so looked after.

The day was the happiest day of our lives and we have Roberta and the team to thank for that. We have such special memories, beautiful photos and brilliant videos to look back on.

Thank you!

Attended a wedding in February 2019. It is one of the best wedding venues I have ever attended.

Gosfield Hall is an historic building set in well kept picturesque grounds. With oak panelled walls, comfortable period furniture, lofty ceilings, it is a very impressive location. We were greeted on arrival by smart staff and offered a range of welcoming drinks including cocktails followed by delicious canapés. The food for the sit down meal was superb and would have complimented a high class restaurant all served promptly by conscientious and skilled waiting staff.

For those that needed accommodation, the rooms were the biggest I have ever seen, all on suite.

I would highly recommend this venue.

Our son & daughter-in-law had their wedding at Gosfield Hall on Monday 18th February.

From the time the bridal party arrived at the cottage the evening before, until leaving Tuesday morning we could not fault it.

Emma was absolutely amazing keeping everyone on track and calming nerves. The whole team was fantastic, it truly was the most fantastic beautiful day in the most wonderful setting ever x

Dear Catherine,

Bernard and I enjoyed every beautiful moment of Robin and Cath’s wedding at your stunning location.

We want to say thank you to you personally as their Wedding Planner. We also want to say a huge thank you to ALL the staff at Gosfield Hall who worked so hard to create all the decorations, setting up of the wonderful Ballroom for the wedding feast, preparing, cooking and serving it, preparation of all the various bedrooms and the sumptuous breakfast the following morning. I could go on, but everything was all presented and arranged so beautifully and with such professionalism and skill that all of us who were lucky enough to be invited to Robin and Cath’s wedding was utterly amazed and delighted at what we experienced.

In particular, may we compliment you on the staff who were  – without exception – helpful and kind to all of us. I cite the instance of our dear friends Ken and his wife Brenda – who has two artificial knees. They did not have a chair with arms in their allotted bedroom, but one was immediately found and brought up for her to approve, and she was asked again if there was anything they could do to help her.

Everyone we know (and we knew personally over 50 of the invited guests) was full of praise for the quality of the food served – not only the delicious canapes, but in particular the main wedding feast. It was all so fresh and delicious and this must have been a difficult job given that the two previous days were Christmas Day and Boxing Day!

To sum up – we cannot thank you and all the people who work at Gosfield for giving us such a lovely day. You will never be  forgotten,  and so many people at the wedding are still commenting on it and saying how wonderful it all was.  We know Cath and Robin were thrilled with all that you did for them, and you really did make their dreams come true.  That’s the best accolade ANYONE could have, so “Well Done” to you and to everyone who works so hard at Gosfield Hall.

With sincere and grateful thanks to you all,

Jeannette Briggs

We couldn’t have asked for a better venue than Gosfield – from start to finish the whole process was brilliant and everything was made so easy for us.

They were incredibly accommodating of all our requests (especially when Sarah asked for our dogs to be brought along as a surprise) and all of our guests commented on how well the day flowed and how well looked after they were.

The food was among the best we’ve ever had and portions were incredibly generous – not just the wedding breakfast itself but also the canapes and breakfast the morning after!

The ‘after party’ also went down a storm and the night porter looked after us very well with late-night drinks in the library before all our overnight guests headed off to bed.

Special thanks to Faye, our wedding manager, who was absolutely lovely and made sure that everything ran like clockwork – she was wonderful!

Gosfield Hall was the first wedding venue that we looked at after we decided to get married…and the last!

I knew as soon as we arrived that this beautiful place this was the place for us to spend our special day! We didn’t look anywhere else!!! Emma showed us around and was also our coordinator on our wedding day. Whilst organising the wedding and also on the wedding day nothing was too much trouble for Emma….she was just amazing!

The food was outstanding and such a lot to choose from. The hall itself was immaculately clean and the bedrooms were beautiful! The bridal suite was just something else! I stayed in the ladies chambers the night before the wedding with my bridesmaids…the perfect start to a perfect wedding! I only wish I could do it all again! The staff were friendly and helpful…especially Emma!! I would highly recommend Gosfield Hall for many many different reasons…it turned out to be better than we could have ever imagined!

I cannot thank everyone enough… Just perfect in every way!

We got married on the 5th January 2019. All I can say is – if ANYONE is on the fence about having their wedding at Gosfield, take the plunge! We had the best day of our lives – everything was perfect and our guests have said it’s one of the best weddings they’ve ever been to. Its success was solely down to Gosfield – the food was excellent, my lovely wedding manager Jan was amazing and the flow of the rooms was perfect! The staff were amazing and of course, the venue looked beautiful.

Thank you all so much!
