Dear Hayley

I want to thank you and the all the staff for making our wedding day special.  We have had lots of lovely comments from our guests about the lovely room setting and how much everyone enjoyed the day with us.  It was perfect and I will certainly recommend the Courtyard to everyone x 


Please can you pass our thanks to Phil for his part in keeping everyone topped up with drink and for his colour co-ordination and lovely waistcoat for the evening x

Thanks again

Dear Hayley, Lee, Lilly and all the team,

Wow, what can we say, apart from a million thank yous! Thank you all so so much for all your help with our wedding, it was the perfect day and we would not have changed a single thing.


Hayley, your support and help from the moment we booked, up until the wedding day was fantastic and very much appreciated. You are so organised and we felt so comfortable leaving our wedding planning in your hands.


Lee and Lily, your help on the day was amazing, nothing was too much trouble and all the staff went above and beyond what was expected, this lead to the most amazing day of our lives. The staff on shift always had a smile on their face and again nothing was too much trouble. I work in events and know what it is like towards the end of a long shift, you just want to go home and sleep, but this was never portrayed by any staff members, they were as happy and smiling at the end of the shift as they were at the start.


We loved the little touches and the fact Phil coordinated his outfit to meet our colour scheme!


We are been inundated with compliments by all our friends and family on what a wonderful wedding it was and how amazing the venue, food, staff and accommodation was. We just wish we could do it all again!


Please send our thanks onto all the staff involved, you have a truly wonderful venue which is made exceptional by the staff.

Hayley - We just wanted to send you a massive thank you for the most amazing wedding day.  It could not have gone better, and we enjoyed every minute.   You and the rest of the team were absolutely wonderful, nothing was too much trouble (even finding reading glasses for my Dad :-)) and it meant that our day went without a hitch. You have a stunning venue and any bride and groom would be lucky to have their special day at the Courtyard.
Please pass on our thanks to everyone who helped make our day so special - but especially you!

our wedding was amazing! and The Courtyard looked so beautiful from the garden games, the conservatory, the reception room! its was so beautiful! but even more beautiful than the venue it was the lovely people that helped us! Lee was soooo amazing! he helped with everything, set up and logistics (putting up with super worry/ crazy bride) I don’t know how he did it but I am so grateful.   Lillie-Rose, the night before the wedding was so helpful even though it was so late she was so nice and reassuring… thank you so much for everything she was such a star! Then Phil (what amazingly friendly and kind person) he was greeting everyone with the Pimm’s (everyone commented in how their glasses were never empty and how friendly Phil was… and of course all in yellow to match our wedding colours (so sweet) The housekeeping lady I can’t remember her name she was so nice too, making sure we were ok at the house and helping to move the stuff from one room to the other one (she also got me a heater or something as it was a bit chilly in the morning) and of course YOU (Hayley)!!! all I can say is that I would have never been able to do all this planing without your help, advice and support! you are an amazing person and so kind, nothing was ever too much trouble! you made it all possible and I want to say thank you for that because our day was great because all of you but especially you!!! it was so good one of my friends is going to book with you soon I think as she thought everything was great!! 


All our guest said that the food was wonderful, the venue was beautiful and the staff was very helpful and friendly!!! me and colin are both solo happy we chose your venue for our wedding! 


Thank you so much for a wonderful day and for all the great memories you help to create!

Dearest Hayley,

I don't know where to start.  We had the most amazing day, we cannot thank-you and your team enough for making our day beyond wonderful.  The attention to detail was fantastic & we felt that all your team cared about was us, we want to do it all again.  All of our guests have sent us messages to say what a brilliant day they had & how they were more than impressed with everyone at The Courtyard.  We will definitely be recommending you and your team to anyone we speak to.

Again, we thank-you from the bottom of our hearts.

Just an email to say a big THANK YOU, for everything you did on Saturday. We had the most amazing day and it all ran seamlessly. A lot of people commented on how attentive you were which was absolutely true and you made the day feel completely under control.

So, thank you on behalf of us both and our families to you and everyone at The Courtyard – you really did help make it the best day ever!

We understand that it's really important to have the most perfect wedding day, so we have pulled together some client testimonials from previous weddings to give you a real flavour of the service we offer. Working with Hayley and her wedding planners, we aim to make sure that your wedding goes off without a hitch.   You can also read reviews for the hotel and our weddings on Tripadvisor.

Joel and I would like to say a huge THANK YOU for doing such a wonderful job with arranging our wedding! We can't even begin to tell you how much we really appreciated everything.

You and the rest of the team did so much to help make our day so very special. It really was perfect.

Everyone commented on how great the day was and we are still receiving compliments from our guests about your courteous staff and friendly atmosphere. 

Special thanks to Lee, Phil, and Mandy, and of course to yourself (Hayley). Please also give our compliments to the chef. You guys are a credit to The Courtyard.

It was everything that we wanted and more. Even the weather was kind to us in the end, which was fantastic and we could really appreciate the picturesque grounds. It truly is a beautiful venue and was perfect in every way.

Joel and I have been and will continue to promote using the Courtyard to anyone looking for a place to hold an event.  Our day has left us with so many wonderful memories and we are looking forward to celebrating many occasions back at the Courtyard.   


We will always appreciate your hard work, and help in making our wedding day so special.

We just wanted to thank you, Lee, Lilly, Phil and the whole team for such a fantastic day.   We could not have had a more perfect day, even the weather was extremely kind to us. 


The whole experience could not have been made any more easier for us, the team held our hand throughout the day, and made the day go without a single glitch. I really cannot express how wonderful everyone made us all feel, how special they made the day.


Not only did they make myself and Andy feel at ease, all of the guests commented on how brilliant they were. The whole team was a credit to the Courtyard. 


You all made our Wedding a very special, beautiful day to remember.


We are so pleased we chose you!
