Carolyn Day (Bride)

When we began planning the wedding and we saw Arley Hall I instantly fell in love. It was my perfect wedding venue and Nick agreed. You was so wonderful showing us around and setting the scene. I knew on the first visit that we didn't need to see anymore. This was our venue!!

We then met Lord and Lady Ashbrook which gave it even more gravitas. Another wonderful wedding experience which we actually enjoyed.

Then we then met Rachel through email and then at the food tasting. She was fantastic! Completely in control, organized, kind, and straight-talking – exactly what a couple need.

Then the lady that ran the day. I can't remember her name but she is in the photos. She was lovely and kept everything running smoothly.

On the day everything went like Swiss clockwork. It was seamless. Our day was perfect! Everything went as planned – or at least as far as we were concerned it did. You really looked after us. The day was perfection. We were both over the moon, and everyone, and I mean everyone, said it was the best wedding they have been to. We have to agree!

We look forward to coming back to the UK and visiting Arley Hall when we are next home from Hong Kong.

Best wishes,

Carolyn and Nick Day x

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for a truly magical day on Saturday 13April.
You and your team were faultless right up to the minute we left at 1am.
It is only all the staff that know how hard they work to make the event so special and perfect.
The food was amazing so will you thank James and his team from me please. I did manage to give James a hug when we arrived so that was nice.
All our guests have never stopped talking about Arley and the service.
I want to do it all again now!!

Just attended a stunning wedding at this beautiful venue. From start to finish we were impressed with the quality of the day. The food and drinks served throughout the day were top notch, delicious and served beautifully. Every staff member we saw or spoke to was charming and helpful, clearly well versed in customer care. The master of ceremony was a ‘Peaky Blinder’ look alike which was very amusing twist and a classical quartet on the lawn was beautiful. Well done Arley Hall, as daytime guests we came away feeling very very happy.

We chose Arley Hall as our wedding venue this summer and we are so glad we did!! Arley is just stunning. Rachel and Kerry were brilliant and helped us plan our day just how envisaged it (all in 6 months!) ever at the end of an email or telephone, nothing was too much trouble! There was so much going on on the day, from the gardens to the hall and the barn that the day just flew by. I didn't have to worry about anything I had planned - Rachel sorted all the suppliers without me having to worry about a thing. We had a truly fantastic day, soaking up the atmosphere in the most beautiful surroundings, making memories we will never forget! The food was fantastic and commented on by all the guest as the best wedding breakfast they'd ever had. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Arley to any future bride and groom - what a special place it is!

Mother of the Bride

As the Mother of the Bride, I had visited numerous venues with my daughter for their wedding day and what made the decision to book Arley Hall in my daughters words “it’s the mystique feel of this place”. Arley Hall transformed into a delight on their special day, guests greeted on the grounds on the lawn with outside drinks, wedding breakfast served outside in the courtyard amongst the prettiest of surroundings and beautifully decorated by Flossies Wedding Designs. The ambience practically took your breath away once the evening came and lighting of candles appeared shining through! What truly gave their wedding venue the outstanding 5 star rating was without doubt Rachel and her fabulous team. They worked so hard in every fine detail possible to ensure both the bride and groom were kept relaxed and got the most out of their “special day” as possible. Rachel completely dedicates herself from the initial first meeting right up until your wedding day, she even returned a call to me on her day off! I will forever remember my daughter’s wedding for the rest of my life like it was yesterday. Thank You Rachel and all your team so much for giving us memories to treasure forever.

Hazel and Andrew

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping us plan and host our wedding at Arley Hall. It was a truly magical day for us and we could not have wished for anything more memorable. The whole experience was fantastic from the organisation of the event, the hall itself, the beautiful Chapel and the Olympia Barn where we danced the night away. Rachel, you and your team did a brilliant job of looking after us and our guests. From the moment we arrived the staff were extremely friendly, attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The planning and attention to detail was excellent and is a great credit to all those involved. The food also was superb and beautifully presented. All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it, especially the lamb!. Please can you pass on our thanks to your very talented chefs. Our day was perfect in every way and we were so happy to have chosen Arley Hall for our special day. It will forever be a very special place in our hearts.

We’d just like to say a big thank you for all your help on the wedding day. We received compliments from almost everybody saying how great the venue was and particularly on how well the event was managed, which was largely down to you. You worked incredibly hard to keep everyone happy and we really appreciated it.

Linda & Steven

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
