    Words fail to adequately express how absolutely fantastic we thought our Wedding day was. We feel it was a tremendous success from start to finish. All the arrangements you and Simon so carefully put in place for us worked just brilliantly. We can’t thank you enough. Every aspect of the day exceeded our expectations. The setting, the room, the food, the service, were all excellent - just everything was wonderful for us.

    We appreciated enormously the way in which you carefully and sensitively listened to and met all our needs. It looked great and the staff gave us a first class service. The accommodation arrangements also worked out wonderfully well and we’d like to record our thanks to Sarah Hoggarth. Thank you again for making our wedding day truly a day to treasure with not a single hitch and only the happiest, happiest of memories.

  • The Grateful Couple

    Every single member of staff was absolutely amazing, extremely professional, attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The service was just 1st class. All our guests commented on the level of service they received and they were blown away. Please thank everyone who worked that day/ night, they worked extremely hard. I want to make a special mention to Simon, who lead his team and looked after me and Scott beautifully, he was so professional, calm and just a genuinely good guy!

    I also want to thank the chef for the amazing food he and his team created on the day and for agreeing to do two vegetarian dishes. The food was absolutely scrumptious and again, the guests commented on how delicious and well-presented it was. Huge thank you to everyone who contributed to creating a perfect day for us, which includes all the staff who worked behind the scenes.

  • The Happy Couple

    We approached Oakley Court because we were looking for a striking, unique and historic hotel for our wedding, which took place on the 20th December 2014 with 130 guests. Oakley Court helped us by providing not only the perfect setting but also outstanding service. The Operations team at Oakley Court both pre event and on the day were excellent and we received so much positive feedback from our guests. What we especially liked was that Oakley Court is very flexible and customer service comes first. Francesca our Wedding Co-ordinator helped us develop the perfect package during the pre-wedding meetings and Simon then delivered and managed a great event on the day. I would recommend Oakley Court to anyone who is looking for a professional team who you can trust to deliver every element of your wedding day.
