Wedded Bliss We held are wedding at the Billesley Manor Hotel on Easter Monday and can honestly say that from the first contact with the Hotel and Naomi Wickes the Wedding Co-ordinator we could have asked no more. The service and advice we received was first class; the planning accurate and detailed; and the execution perfect. Our Wedding which was conducted in the Great Hall had 42 Guests, with a number staying overnight. Our day included the Wedding Ceremony; the Wedding Breakfast; and evening entertainment. An added plus is the fantastic gardens for the photos. Thank you Naomi and all the staff
Wonderfull Wedding at a fantastic Hotel We got married here in June and we have nothing but praise for this wonderfull hotel and its staff. Not one of our guests had anything negative to say about it and all were impressed by the hotel, food and hospitality.
The Wedding co-ordinator Naomi was fantastic and they where able to accomodate my every wish. Naomi helped make my ideas and suggestions reality and nothing was too much trouble.
The food was fantastic and served promptly, under the guidance of the hotel manager.
I saw a few of the rooms and they were all outstanding including the bridal suit which was fantastic.
My mother in law enjoyed it so much she has decided to go back again to stay for a few nights in the near future.
the perfect place for a wedding As soon as my daughter and son-in law visited the hotel and met with Naomi they new it was where they wanted to get married.Even in rain and snow it was somewhere special The staff made the day stressfree and relaxed but effiient.All are little 'quirks' were dealt with to make this day uniqueThe food delicious and the weather perfect. Several guest stayed overnight and had nothing but praise even though the hotel was busy..
They gave us the perfect wedding day... We were married at Billesley Manor on 03/06/2011 and cannot thank Naomi and all the staff enough for what was the perfect wedding day. Having visitied several potential locations we knew within 5 minutes of meeting Naomi that everything we wanted would be catered for here. Naomi maintained regular contact with us throughout the months leading up to the big day which gave us every confidence that the day would run smoothly.
When the day arrived Naomi and her team could not have been more helpful, from the room preparations in the morning to the service and wedding breakfast. All our guests commented on how wonderful the venue was (The Great Hall) and the fantastic level of service and hospitality shown by all of the staff.
Thr grounds provide the perfect setting for wedding photos and we can highly recommend Spencer Lewis from Lewis & Lewis Photography who was able to capture both those formal and informal moments that made the day so special for us all. Spencer was recommended to us by Naomi and he was every bit as good as we were told.
The wedding breakfast was excellent and very reasonably priced when compared to other local venues. The drink prices were higher than your standard pub prices, as you would expect in any similar standard hotel, but significantly cheaper than some other hotels in the Stratford-upon-Avon area.
Our complimentary honeymoon suite was beautiful and in keeping with what you would expect of such a beautiful and historic building.
The buffet breakfast the following morning was once again superb. If only I hadn'tstill been so full from the wedding breakfast the previous day or I would have eaten more!!!
We could not find a single fault with either the build up to the day or the day itself. Thanks to Naomi and all the staff for making our day the perfect day.
Our wedding day We had our wedding at the Billesley Manor hotel on the 16th August. We had a fantastic day everything was as we had requested. The staff went out of their way to help us and our guests, a special mention to Roy who kept the whole day running smoothly. The food we had was delicious and there was plenty of it! The DJ that was recommended to us was brilliant and kept the tunes going! Many thanks to everyone who contributed to making our day very special. I would highly recommend the Billesley Manor
Wedding 20th July We would like to express our sincerest thanks to Naomi and the team at Billesley for their support not only on our wedding day but leading up to it, from the first time we walked through the main doors at Billesley Manor till we married on the 20th July 2014, Myself and Husband were delighted with everything from the show around to the meal tasting, Planning a wedding i'm sure you can appreciate can be stressful but with Naomi's support this was never the case for us, If we had a question she answered it, if we needed to change something Naomi ensured the change was made... it felt as if nothing was too much trouble. you may or may not be aware that we presented Naomi with flowers - this was simply a small gesture of thanks and even then Naomi replied with " i am just doing my job" - I doubt this is "just a job" to Naomi she is very evidently passionate about her Role at Billesley and this shone through. An absolute pleasure to work with and asset to Billesley. Having worked in the industry myself, i have worked with various wedding coordinators none could i think of being so passionate about their role.
We will be back i am sure and on a regular basis, it hold very fond memories for us.... We will also be looking to be back at Billesley in the future to hold our blessing in the Church just off the grounds and hold a small function after wards in one of your room, don't worry Naomi this wont be for about 5 years, i Sincerely hope you are still there to work with again.
My daughters wedding My daughter had her wedding here ,it was fantastic what a lovely place staff were excellent nothing was any problem the whole day was just perfect ,the rooms we stayed in were lovely,so clean and stocked out with everything you may need. It was a very calming place thankyou very much would love to come back some time in the future. A good day was had by all thankyou
Wedding of our dreams I rarely rate a venue or experience with top marks, however our recent experience at Billesley Manor definitely merits it on this occasion.
We held our wedding at Billesley on 13 September and the day was perfect, from the way the team organised the set up for the event on the day, to the catering and service through to the evening.
Our wedding was relatively small with 42 to the day event, meaning our ceremony could be held in the Great Hall, a room with real character and perfect for the intimate atmosphere we wanted. Our evening reception with disco was in the Topiary Suite and again the set up was smooth and suited our 80 odd guests very well.
Couldn't fault the food and service at the wedding breakfast, with the serving staff being personable and attentive.
Great testimony to the experience was that all of the guests, both daytime and evening spoke so highly of the venue, including those that stopped over on the night of the wedding, and even now still speak about it and claim that it was one of the best weddings venues they had attended.
A special thank you to Naomi, the wedding co-ordinator, who even in the weeks and months leading up to the event was patient, encouraging and certainly gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble (even if it may have been).
Congratulations and thank you Billesley - we'll be back, so see you soon!
our wedding Thank you so much for everything you did to give us such a wonderful day! We would like to say a big thank you to our wedding planner Naomi Wickes. You did a fantastic job and all the finishing touches were perfect and it was even better than we had imagined! Weddings can be stressful but you put my mind at rest and everything was taken care of. Thanks for all your hard work and we hope to stay at the hotel again soon.such lovely staff and every guest said what a lovely welcome the hotel gave them.
My wedding I have been meaning to write this review for a while, I had my wedding at this fantastic venue and what a day we had. The staff were so attentive and could not do more for us.
But the person I want to thank the most is Mrs Naomi Wicks the Events Executive, from our first meeting she made us feel so welcome and could not do enough for us. Her whole demeanor was professional, friendly and reassuring that our big day would be perfect.
On the day of our wedding I had an issue with my dress and was panicking due to the stitching that had come away, but Naomi herself fixed this and i could not be more thankful.
So if you are looking for a venue with beautiful surroundings, first class staff but more importantly a FANTASTIC Events Executive that goes above and beyond I highly recommend Billesley Manor Hotel.
