Awards & Testimonials

St Audries Park’s numerous award wins since its beginnings in 2002 are testament to all the hard work that our team put in to each and every wedding we host. St Audries Park was voted ‘Best UK Wedding Venue’ by readers of Wedding Ideas Magazine at the Wedding Ideas Awards 2013. We were also highly commended in the Best Wedding Venue category for the Perfect Wedding Awards 2012.

Finally, our most recent recognition came at the UK’s biggest wedding awards – The British Wedding Awards 2017 – where St Audries Park managed to get shortlisted in the final 14. We were pipped at the post by our sister venue Clearwell Castle, but we couldn’t have picked a better venue to lose to!

Bride & Groom – Rachel and Rakesh

Dear Janette

Thank you so much for organizing such an amazing wedding day for us and making it so special. Right from the start you were very professional and had a very positive approach to translating our vision into our wedding. We knew that we were presenting you with a few challenges, and many requests, you worked with us and advised us throughout helping and guiding and getting things done.

On the day, you oversaw everything perfectly, and we knew we could rely on you, and so relax and enjoy our day.

The grounds and the arrangements were stunning. The guests were “Wowed” by everything, they were all joyous and happy. It has created very many happy memories, for us all. And now those ripples of happiness are echoing around the world as the last of the guests from abroad headed home yesterday. We particularly appreciated the care you and St Audries took with our special guests, Scott from Australia, and my Father. Both have quite challenging disabilities, and the care and consideration that was taken for both of them was superb. From my heart it meant so much to me that my father could be there to give me away and be an integral part of the ceremony and the wedding breakfast.

As we mentioned to Jade right from the beginning, food was a big component. There were so many positive comments on the food and menus. One of our guests is a high end restaurant owner and foodie, from New York. When she saw the menu she commented that somebody really knew what they were doing with the menu, and she was excited by it, and really liked the food. I know you had to hug the chef to get the souffle on the menu, and it was indeed fantastic. I am sure it was your good relationship with Chef, that helped form the perfect meals (the afternoon tea in the orangery, the reception dinner, the breakfasts, and the centre piece the wedding breakfast.) If you would also pass on our thanks to the Chef.

Thank you again,

best wishes

Hi Janette,

We are now back from a few days away in Italy post wedding and wanted to let you know how grateful we are to you (and all the staff at St Audries) for making our day run so smoothly last Sunday. It was such a perfect day!

Thanks for making sure everything was set up as we asked, for keeping on top of the timings for the day and for being flexible when we changed plans slightly. The venue looked absolutely stunning and so many guests commented on the quality of the food and accommodation and the professionalism of the staff. We (and our parents) felt relaxed all day long and all had a fabulous time. Thank you!

Best regards
Jenny and Tim

The venue looked beautiful and nothing that we had asked for proved to be too much trouble. We have had so many messages from our guests about how stunning the venue and our ceremony was!
