Bride & Groom – Mr & Mrs Campbell

My wife and I were lucky enough to hold our wedding celebration at your venue on Wednesday 8th December 2021 and we just wanted to write a quick message to thank all your staff for making our wedding day so magical.

We would especially like to thank and praise Courtney , our wedding co-ordinator for all her efforts as she was totally amazing and went above and beyond at all times to make sure everything was perfect and that everything went according to plan throughout the entire day and night ( whatever you are paying her … it isn’t enough.)

It is amazingly clear to us that we couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our special day and this was made so by Courtney’s efforts. Please pass on our deepest gratitude and thanks.

Bride & Groom – Mr & Mrs Marriott

Words cannot express just how delighted we were with our wedding day at St Audries Park.

From start to finish everything ran smoothly enabling us to relax and enjoy our time with our family and friends knowing everything was in hand.

We would like to make a special mention about our wedding planner Lee, who was outstanding, despite having to reschedule 4 times he remained professional at all times and always provided us with solutions.

We cannot fault St Audries in any way (even during challenging times) and we would recommend them to anyone who wishes to have a perfect wedding day, as we did. Thanks very much to all at St Audries, Love Mr and Mrs Marriott

Bride & Groom – Rachel & Tom

Dear Lee,

We wanted to pass on our thanks to everyone at St Audries as we felt the whole experience was first class. Our guests commented on how fantastic they found the venue to be.

The staff were very attentive and the food was exquisite, especially the lemon meringue pie!

Courtney did a fantastic job leading up to the wedding and always replied to our questions in a very timely helpful manner.

Rachel wanted to pass on a particular thank you to Georgia who helped with her wedding dress during the “quiet moment” when Tom was elsewhere. She was delivering the canapés but was very helpful along with Courtney in sorting out the dress which had come apart.

Mother of the Bride – Karen

Dear Janette,

I just wanted to drop you an email to say a HUGE ‘Thank you’ for the calm snd efficient way you managed Beth and AJ’s wedding. The whole experience from beginning to end was faultless (and I am not known for being easily pleased!!).

From our first meeting via a Zoom call, you instilled confidence and my anxiety about Beth and AJ having chosen a venue so far from home, which i had never visited, dissipated.

You were there, in the background, throughout gently guiding snd steering events to ensure all ran smoothly.

Please pass on my praise to the entire St Audries team – from housekeeping to groundsmen, everyone we encountered was polite, personsble, smiley and attentive.

I have never experienced a wedding at a dedicated ‘wedding venue’ and was apprehensive about how things would be but my goodness, St Audries is quite simply stunning! – the Orangery, the grounds, the house, the cottages, were all fabulous.

And the food was DELICIOUS! So professionally served to the tables AND hot!!

You were all so accommodating too with Dave, my husband, who had been a source of great anxiety for me, again until I met with you via Zoom, where his needs were discussed and incorporated into the planning. It was no mean feat getting Dave to his daughter’s wedding but you all helped to make it possible.

Wishing you all a successful future as we start to come out of this pandemic. Places like St Audries simply must survive and thrive to give future families the wonderful wedding memories that will remain with us, always.

Very best wishes to the entire team.

Bride & Groom – Mr & Mrs Shaw

We have had a few days now, to try to return to normal …

… it has been very difficult as we truly had a fabulous – TRULY AMAZING – day!

We both would like to relive it again … and again … and again!!

All the guests that I have since spoken to, have commented on what a wonderful wedding we had – how amazing the food was, how gorgeous the venue was and how perfect the day was!

So we would like to thank you and the whole team, from the bottom of our hearts, for making our wedding day SO special – we can not thank you enough.

The staff were so amazing – so professional, considerate and helpful.

I would say ALL your staff were a credit to you and St Audries Wedding Venue, but Georgie, Sam and Isaac certainly stood out for their dedication, attention to detail and personal determination to make our day so unique and special.

The rooms were superb and immaculate, so those staff that work tirelessly behind the scenes should also be commended … As should the kitchen staff, who prepared, cooked  and presented such a gorgeous meal, for which our guests had nothing but praise.

Finally, we would specifically like to thank you, Lee.

Your dedication and patience in the – oh so long – lead up to the day was commendable; especially in the face of my wife’s onslaught of anxious emails, as the day got closer … was truly heroic!

Your patience and care of us and our guests –  ‘ALWAYS being on hand’ to smooth out any ruffles to the day  – was SO reassuring … we knew we could count on you and you never let us down; you were always there and were instrumental in our day being the day it turned out to be; nothing was too much trouble; no problem that you could not solve.

As I said earlier, we can not thank you enough, we can only try; thank you, Lee, so very much.

I hope and trust that you will be able to pass this on to your Head Office, as I feel they should be aware of the level of work and dedication, you and the staff have put in (and I’m sure will continue to do) at St Audries, particularly considering this very difficult COVID time.

We look forward with much pleasure to returning to St Audries for a ‘date night’ event in the near future (we really can’t wait!!) and hopefully will be able to renew our acquaintance with yourself and the staff once again.

With best wishes, kindest regards and, once again, warmest thanks,

Robbie and Charlie Shaw

Groom – Phillip

This is an amazing venue, we got married here the other week. All staff have been amazing through everything with postponements and the pandemic, you name it!

On the day everyone has been so accommodating and couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Lee was our wedding planner and just made us feel so relaxed with the build up and on the day made us both feel at ease with what was going on and nothing was too much hassle.

Really can’t wait to go back for a dinner evening or planned event.

Kind Regards

WOW, just WOW, I visited St Audries Park yesterday to meet a Bride and Groom as I will photograph their wedding there in September.

The weather was awful yet the house and grounds simply stunning. A large deer sat on the croquet lawn as if waiting for a game.

We had a good look around the venue and I have to say I can’t wait to shoot their wedding at St Audries.

Stunning venue, very well decorated, great state of repair. I think I will move in !

Add a little extra SPARKLE to your wedding this Christmas...Tell me more!
