Wow, where do I being. We had the best day ever, everything was just perfect, nothing was to much trouble. The food was amazing! All the little things like a bubble bath ran for us, slice of wedding cake and bottle of champagne waiting for us when we returned to our honeymoon suit. We’re just few of the wonderful gestures that made it that big more special for us. So a massive thank you to Lia and all the other members of staff at Southdowns that made our wedding a day to remember. Charlotte & Nathon 02/02/2020
We fell in love with Southdowns from the very first visit, we decided to not even bother looking at other venues. From day one and throughout, we never once felt like customers but just part of the family. The whole team are passionate, loving and dedicated and our wedding planner - Kate - went above and beyond (which in itself is a massive understatement). Kate was somehow at every single moment throughout the day - helping with hair, rearranging rooms, entertaining both the bride and groom (and even keeping an eye on flower girls running riot!) and prepping guests - and even our families commented on how she just seamlessly brought moments together. Our wedding morning was the most relaxing and stress free morning we’ve ever had! The team on the day worked in perfect synchronisation to the point you’d think it was mechanical if not for the individualisation and personable team. Food wise, they could probably pass for a Michelin restaurant without needing to be a wedding venue - we still crave the pork belly again to this day! Choosing Southdowns was our second best decision, only coming after our decision to get married. We’ll never be able to thank them all enough - we almost wish we were doing it all again!

I am getting married here in 5 months time and I cannot wait. The team at southdowns Manor have worked with me and my budget to allow me to have the wedding of my dreams. They have been available whenever I have emailed or called regarding any questions. I fell in love with Southdowns Manor from the moment I arrived and lived it even more when I met the wonderful staff!
Lia was amazing throughout! I feel so lucky to have had her as our wedding planner. She went above and beyond to make sure our special day was perfect, and we couldn’t have been happier with how our day planned out. Thank you Lia! Highly recommended! xxx 14/12/2019 Mr & Mrs Law
Before we even got engaged we found out about Southdowns Manor on Facebook. On first impressions we thought we would love to get married there one day. So when we got engaged, it was our first choice of venue to see... it turned out to be the only one we saw. From the moment we arrived it blew us away. Its location, the exclusivity and the overall look of the venue is what drew us in but its so much more than that. The team was very attentive and always on hand to answer questions and reassure us with any little worries we had. There are so many little touches the venue provide that made it feel so special and unique to us. When we got closer to our big day we were appointed Kate Armstrong for the last few weeks of planning and to oversee the actual day. We had read many reviews which mentioned how good she was and they were not wrong. She is amazing, she has such passion and excitement for weddings and nothing is too much trouble for her. She was on hand all day to make sure everything ran smoothly and any minor issues were resolved so quickly by her that they were barely noticed. Words cannot describe how important she was to us on our big day, by the end of it we didn't want her to leave and we are going to miss her now its over. Kate is a HUGE asset to Southdowns Manor. On the day the venue looked beautiful. The canapés, wedding breakfast and evening buffet were delicious. The DJ Southdowns Manor use is very good and had people up dancing all night. We also had the selfie mirror provided by Smiles Entertainment and its such a great idea. Paul who runs it is brilliant. All of our guests have not stopped saying how wonderful everything was and how much fun they had, which is what we exactly wanted. We really did have the perfect day and wish we could do it all again. So, thank you to Kate and thank you to Southdowns Manor, we couldn't ask for anymore. Amy and Gary Mitchell 02/11/2019
We had the most amazing day. The venue is breathtaking and the staff are ridiculously helpful and nice. Lia was a superstar and nothing was to much trouble. Everyone could not get over how amazing the food was and lots of people said to us that it was the best wedding they’d ever been too. We can’t thank Southdowns Manor enough for all there hard work and an amazingly special day. Holly Budd 13/12/2019
The best Wedding venue ever! Perfect from start to finish! We could not have asked for a more amazing, professional, attentive wedding planner as Lia was. She was a perfectionist! Made us both feel at ease throughout our whole wedding planning journey so we can honestly say we did not feel the usual stress associated with weddings! Being able to start the day by getting ready with the bridesmaids in the dressing room was lovely & made the day seem to last longer. My only suggestion for the dressing room is to have better lighting in there (it was a rainy day so even daylight was poor) The food was perfect, we received so many compliments from our guests on both the wedding breakfast (Lamb shank) & the evening buffet (Indian Selection). The staff made sure no wine glasses were empty throughout the day & were all very professional & friendly. The chair sashes provided by Southdowns Manor were the perfect match to our flowers. We also found our blossom trees during an open day at Southdowns Manor. Rebecca & Matt Whelan 15/11/2019
Lois our wedding planner was so lovely. She was so willing to help with every little query we had and was so supportive and cheery on the day. Our guests were very impressed with how smoothly the day went and we had endless compliments on the food. The herb crusted salmon was outstanding! We loved ever moment and like a great day always does- the time flew by. Can’t thank all the staff enough for their great service on the day.
Thank you so much for making our wedding the most amazing and wonderful day of our lives. From the very first moment we made that initial contact with you, you made us feel so special and you treated us with the utmost care and attention to detail. Our wedding planner, Lia was absolutely outstanding! She looked after us every step of the way and nothing was too much trouble. I know she must deal with so many weddings but she has a gift for making us feel like we were the most important people in the world. Our wedding day was beyond anything we could have ever hoped for. The venue was beautiful, the attention to detail was outstanding, the service from all the staff was second to none, and so many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to.Thank you so much Southdowns Manor. We will never forget what you did. And thank you Lia for being an angel!
Southdowns Manor – our fairytale wedding venue. Wow what an amazing day we had and that was all down to this amazing venue. We choose the 2 night stay which we loved, it was all so relaxed when we walked in the day before everything was set up and all candles were lit which I wasn’t expecting at all it was all so calm. We had the Thai green curry which was lovely I would recommend. Our WEM Lois was there to greet us and took us through everything we needed to know. I don’t think I ever heard her say ‘no’ to anything. Any little thing I asked for she did for us. The wedding day ran so smoothly thanks to Lois, Katie and the team and our guests commented on the amazing venue and food. So many special touches, one of our favourites being our own plate of buffet food and cake left for us waiting in the honeymoon suite with a full hot bubble bath (thank you Katie). I wouldn’t of wanted my day to be held anywhere else in the world. Southdowns manor- you have a special place in our hearts. Thank you again Mr and Mrs Boyle xxx
