We enjoy hearing from the happy couples that chose Arley Hall as the venue for their wedding day. Below are some of the many testimonials we receive:
Charlotte Booth (Bride)
We wanted to email you to attempt to thank you for everything you all did to make our wedding day just perfect in every way. Words cannot begin to express the gratitude we have to yourself and the team for all of the effort you put into ensuring that every aspect of my extensive instructions were followed to the letter. The professionalism and calmness that the team brought to the running day was exceptional and second to none. A special mention to Lisa – AMAZING! Steve and Simon really made it feel like home before, during and since the wedding day when we have returned.
You truly delivered everything you offered us three year previous to the day and from the moment we walked from the car park to view Arley that first time, we had no doubt that it was where we were meant to spend the most important day of our lives. We cannot take our eyes off the photos (I cry every time I look at them) so wanted to share a few of our favourites with you all…
Kerrie Cassel (Bride)
I really don’t know where to start with my thank you’s to you and all of the team at Arley.
We always knew we had chosen a very special venue, from the moment I walked up the driveway over 2 years ago, I knew I had to get married there. The hall, the gardens, Olympia barn….. It was all the perfect backdrop for our dream wedding, and the photos we’ve seen so far are just magical.
What I didn’t know until more recently was just how genuine, hard working and helpful all of the staff are. As I walked around the hall during the day, every face I saw was friendly and everyone was so lovely to talk to and had nothing but nice things to say to us and our families. They helped to make the day go smoothly with a sense of calm that we really needed. A very special thank you to Simon and his team who were there for our final meeting a few weeks ago, and helping set up on the morning of the wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for them and I can’t thank them enough. Please pass on our thanks to all of them.
Finally to you Shelagh, thank you for your patience and replies to every little question I had in the run up to the wedding. I needn’t have worried about anything as your team had everything covered.
Thank you for our season pass and card. I’m sure we will bump into you and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Hayley Carter (Bride)
We just wanted to drop you a quick message to say thank you so much to everyone at Arley for all their efforts on Friday and the lovely wedding card and annual pass gift (which I’m sure will be used frequently). The room etc was laid out perfectly in the morning and to the exact specifications we had discussed. It looked absolutely fabulous! Lisa made sure the ceremony and timings were spot on and all our guests commented on how beautiful the hall was and how attentive and professional the staff were, so thank you very much it really made our day that everything ran so smoothly.
Thanks again for all your efforts and hard work which is greatly appreciated. We had an absolutely amazing day which we will always remember.
Helen & David Begent (Bride and Groom)
We had the most amazing, small and intimate wedding earlier this year at Arley, just 30 guests, we were married in the Library with a wedding breakfast, on one big long table, in The Gallery. The staff, Simon, Lisa, Sarah & Karen were wonderful and the day was fantastic. We both work at Arley and know how good it is as a wedding venue, we wouldnt have considered anywhere else. Martin Hambleton an Arley preferred supplier took fantastic pictures and Juliet from Thoughtful Flowers, another Arley preferred supplier provided button holes, corsarges and flowers for the table and rooms that were perfect for our day. We want to say a huge thank you to everyone.
Mary and Martin Rigby (Mother & Father of the Bride)
Just had to drop you a line – don’t know quite where to start because “Thank you” is not enough. Nevertheless, here it is a massive THANK YOU to yourself and all the staff at Arley. Amy and Callum’s day was absolutely perfect in every way and that was down to you and your fantastic staff. Nothing was too much trouble, they were so polite and courteous and made everyone so welcome.
We have had lots of lovely comments from the guests to say how wonderful the whole day was. Thank you so much for the time you spent with us the other Sunday finalising things, again you were so patient and put our minds at rest that indeed everything would be under control and we had no reasons to worry- we went home feeling relieved and worry free.
Saturday was like a dream we felt like we were in an episode of Downton Abbey!!! A stunning venue, and a wonderful staff – what a combination for success! Would love to do it all again next week (but we are broke!!!
