Lovely wedding venue in a beautiful setting.

Absolutely stunning exteriors and beautiful interiors with an atmosphere of historic grandeur. I photographed a wedding there recently and really enjoyed it. Great facilities, professional and attentive staff (especially our wedding coordinator!) and delicious food.

I and my Husband were lucky enough to get married in Gosfield Hall on 13th March 2019.

It was a beautiful day and all our guests commented on how picturesque the hall and grounds were and how delicious the food was! Our wedding coordinator Roberta was great! So approachable and she was always there to speak too and advise us throughout the whole process.

Thank you so much! The new Mr and Mrs Cracknell

We had our special day on Saturday 2nd March and I just wanted to say what an amazing experience it has all been! Catherine, I want to say a huge thank you to you. For the whole day and night, the support and help you gave was second to none, nothing was too much effort and I couldn’t have had the dream wedding without you!
DJ Jason was fantastic, he took into account all of our favourite types of music and our guests had a great time!
All of the staff at Gosfield are so friendly and kind. The food was exceptional, the guests have not stopped raving about it!

Thank you Gosfield for making our dream wedding happen in a short space of time!

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!

Ella and David

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
