The whole day was seem-less and perfect, Hannah was a very happy and excited girl indeed. The only fault we had was it went too quickly! Literally a blur. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts we are so happy to have chosen the Wood Norton and can’t praise you all enough.'

  • 'I just wanted to bring to your attention a member of your staff who I think deserves special recognition. I knew when we first found the Wood Norton it would be the perfect setting for our wedding on 29/06/2019 and although Sandy and Amy had sadly left (who were both excellent too), when I met Georgie I knew we were in extremely safe hands. Georgie has truly been a perfect wedding coordinator and everything before, during and after our big day has been exceptional. I have worked for a number of years in the hotel industry and know just how very hard it can be to find staff exceptional staff. All of the staff have been amazing and worked as part of a team to go far above and beyond my expectations (including the kitchen staff who assisted with dietary requirements etc.).'

  • 'My husband and I married at the Horn of Plenty June 2019 and it was most wonderful experience. The breathtaking views over the valley and gorgeous venue and beautiful gardens won us over immediately. From the moment we booked, a year before, to the special day the wedding team were in close contact and always quick to reply to emails or phone calls. The day itself was amazing. I can’t believe how smoothly it all went and how relaxed I felt. I think this was because everything was very organised leading up to the day. All the recommended services (florist/cake/cheese shop) were incredible and the food was delicious on the day. Thank you to Shirna and the wedding team for making the day so special for us. I wish we could do it all again! '

Not only did you work with us to accommodate all our needs with great attention to detail, you ensured we had our "dream “wedding. Every team member (from the toastmaster to night staff) at Langshott Manor welcomed our guest with great pleasure and welcomed everyone with great smile. Our wedding day was the most magical and wonderful day that that we could have wished for & a lifetime memory. Feedback from guest: "hidden gem with great history" "great quality food and service" "how did you find this hidden treasure?" "one of the most beautiful and comfy bedrooms we've seen" "peaceful surroundings with full exclusivity allowed the kids and dogs to run free" We cannot express how amazing Jessica and the team was.

  • 'Our day was everything we could of wished for & more. We were extremely blessed with the sun shining on us, rather than thunderstorms which were forecasted for our day. It was so wonderful to have Rebecca as our wedding coordinator, we felt she went above and beyond to help ensure we had the best day. Zsolt is a very special man indeed, I can see why he is a manager of the banqueting team. Zsolt in my opinion cares about what he does & this really shines through in how he deals with people. Zsolt’s amazing nature is just second to none & we are most grateful to him for all he did for us. Personally I’m one for appreciating good customer service, I really believe it’s the people who you deal with in any experience who can make it. '

  • 'We don’t have a single bad word to say. From the minute we walked in the venue, we knew it was the one. The venue speaks for itself but the staff were also incredible from the get go. They were in constant contact with us both during the 9 month planning stage. The food is OUTSTANDING and they catered for some odd requests without question. Everything ran without a hitch on the day. Carrie was excellent and the waitresses and bar staff had great humour and were extremely pleasant. Although we knew the hard work that they put into the day, we barely knew they were there. They weren’t intrusive and went above and beyond to help the wedding party and guests. We both want to say thank you to every single person at The Gardens. Down to the personnel who keep the grounds as beautiful as they are. We couldn’t recommend this venue enough and all our guests were blown away by its beauty.'

  • 'Judith was our photographer at the end of February 2019 at Cripps Barn. From our initial contact with Judith right up until she provided us with the photos (a few prints and the usb in the most beautiful wooden inscribed box) has been an absolute pleasure. I am a fan of natural photos as well as black and white and this is exactly what was delivered, capturing many things that we would otherwise had missed if we were only interested in portrait shots as she seamlessly wandered around capturing all the special moments. From the moment Judith arrived on the morning of the big day she went above and beyond and had a bum bag of goodies, including extra hair clips and pins for button holes! We can’t recommend Judith enough and should the need arise for a photographer at future events in our lives, we would not hesitate to call her up.'

  • 'I was so relieved when I came across Judith’s website which shared so many testimonials from couples who wanted a mixture of staged photos and in the moment photos. Judith did not disappoint! From the moment we had our first consultation to the week leading up to the wedding, Judith was great at listening to what we wanted and explaining what will happen on the day. We felt so at ease around her and immediately had trust in her to capture our day the way we want. Judith was so discreet during the whole day, there were plenty of times when going through the photos that we said we didn’t know Judith was there! Each photo made us smile and the presentation of the photos really told the story of our wedding day. From the online gallery, to receiving the USB in a beautiful personalised wooden box with a selection of photos, made the experience all the more special - especially the chocolates! Judith really thought of everything. We couldn’t recommend Judith enough, thank you for capturing our day in the most beautiful and natural way!'

She was very friendly on our first phone call and offered a great service. On the wedding day itself she was brilliant, took photos of everything we'd asked and more and to top it off, the photos are AMAZING!! As picky as we are, we asked if a number of them could be edited in post which Judith was only too happy to do and they came out brilliantly. Links to online albums and an amazing wooden box with prints and a memory stick were also provided. Massive Thank You to Judith. We will definitely be looking to book you for future events.'

  • 'We are so pleased with the photographs Judith took on our wedding day. They are natural, beautiful quality and perfectly capture the most precious moments of the day. Everyone at the wedding loved her style and how she flitted around, taking photos of everyone in action, rather than staged or posed. Each time we look at the pictures it takes us right back to that very moment; you can hear the laughter on people’s faces, feel the love and happiness. She captured genuine moments which we can relive again and again. We are so grateful for the photos and will treasure them always. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, in fact we already have to several people! Thank you again Judith.'
