We have been planning our wedding with Horsley Towers and they have been nothing but helpful so far! As well as their being very good value, they are kind and exceptionally patient with all my questions. We are very excited about our September 2019 wedding at the Towers.
Love this venue! It's like a home from home. If we did our wedding again we wouldn't hesitate in booking Horsley again. All the staff were so friendly and approachable, yet professional. Thank you Horsley.
"I wanted to send an initial email to say thank you so much for pretty much everything for not just on the day, but all the days leading up to the day.
It really was a wonderful day for the both of us and our friends and family (although, let's be honest, the venue itself sells itself!!). Everyone had a fantastic time and we are grateful to absolutely everyone involved in the day, from yourself and Kate, to the wait staff, bar staff, fantastic chefs (the food was top notch) and those tidying up (til so late we noticed).
I would also like to say that both Steve, the toastmaster and Steven, the DJ, was both great. Both again, so approachable and amenable to everything.
“Oh my God, I have to say that we are still living off the incredible day that our wedding day was.
We feel so privileged that Horsley Towers was the backdrop to our wedding. Every time we visited in the build up to the wedding it became more and more perfect. We now feel there is an affinity with the place that will probably last our lifetime – it really has become that special to us.
I look back now and realise that everything we asked was catered for and planned perfectly to make our day perfect.
Even the night before you managed to lay on the champions league final in the conference room (hopefully it proved successful for the bar takings?), and then on the morning of the wedding there was a great story that some guests thought the wedding service was at the Towers and not at the church and so one of the staff gave them a lift in their own car to the church – you can’t buy that service. Absolutely brilliant.
On the rest of the day itself, the bar was always well staffed and the decorations and tables had all been set out as we wanted. You were so relaxed and flexible to how we intended our day to go that even setting up a tennis court on the lawn wasn’t a problem, and it added to the laid back enjoyable atmosphere that we really wanted our guests to enjoy.
We then had Steve who found a perfect balance of blending into the background and being authoritative when he needed to usher people in for dinner or offer tours around the Towers which was a lovely touch.
By the sounds of it the only thing we didn’t get right was how much fantastic food to order in the evening. All the guests loved it and clearly scoffed the lot before we had any and maybe that central lay out in the hall meant that it worked really well connecting up the Sopworth room and the bar, but the passing trade meant that we needed to increase the food?
One thing you didn’t control but we feel blessed to have benefitted from was the weather. It was due to be thunder storms all day, but we ended up with blue sky and sunshine which was amazing and really showed off the Towers to its full potential.
We should be receiving our pictures back this weekend or next, so we will of course be happy to share them with you and we would like to pop in and thank you all.
We can’t speak highly enough of all the team at Horsley you have made our day.
Thank you all. The day went perfectly. We had fun, memories to look back upon and our guests were very happy and all thoroughly enjoyed the day.
We had comments of "the best wedding we have ever been to" which was extremely gratifying. All of you played a massive part ensuring that we received the perfect wedding. A big thank you to you all.
Sarah and I are now on our honeymoon visiting various islands in the Caribbean cruising with Royal Caribbean on a back to back cruise. Today we visited St Kitts and are currently docked in Basseterre preparing for the evening meal. Tomorrow we head for Antigua then St Lucia followed by Barbados. We get back on 8th July so a little way to go putting our feet up!
Thanks once again and we look forward to, but not too quickly... our return to celebrate our one year anniversary.
