    Well what can I say Amazing, Fantastic, Amazing!!!

    I just wanted to express my thanks and appreciation to you and the team at Sopwell House for making the day an unforgettable and memorable wedding for Denise & Monty.

    From our initial introduction to you and throughout the process you have been an absolute star and I knew that we were in safe hands. Your attention to detail and ability to turn your hand to all matters whether big or small really helped make this such a special occasion.

    From the minute the wedding party arrived on Friday evening until we left on Sunday afternoon we could not have faulted the friendly and warm assistance and nothing was too much trouble, despite at times some of the more unusual requests!

    Even at the last minute when changes had to be made, on our part, you were not phased and dealt with them efficiently and effortlessly (or so it seemed but no doubt you were running around behind the seams).

    I was so grateful on the day for all your assistance and handling of matters as it meant I myself as matron of honour was able to relax and enjoy the wedding and celebrations rather than running around collecting last minute things that were forgotten, trying to work out the projector etc. or organising the candy station, which was a huge hit.

    With you at the helm of wedding events I would not hesitate to recommend Sopwell House to anyone looking for a fabulous venue for their wedding and I really must thank you for everything you did for us not just on the day but everything leading up to the big day!

    In addition I would like to add a huge thanks to Mandy and her team for their fantastic service provided on the day, even when faced with problems from guests who had forgotten/changed their minds with menus!!!! They dealt with the matters professionally, efficiently and always with a smile on their face. The bar and waitressing staff did an amazing job preparing the ceremony space, turning it around for the reception and everything else thereafter and for this I am extremely appreciative. The fact they made the candy station look so amazing as well as keeping it topped up meant I could just relax and not worry.

    I think between yourself and Mandy Sopwell House have the dream team.

    We are very grateful and wish to acknowledge how much Ellyn helped and supported us during the planning stages of Kelly & Jasons wedding -Friday 30th May 2014. From the moment she joined the Sopwell events team we felt confident that she would work with us to ensure that everything would be perfect on the day.

    We would also like to recognise Jenny from the reservation team. She had the mammoth task of dealing with the vast number of hotel bookings and individual requests from our wedding party. Jenny was professional, helpful and friendly throughout and nothing was ever too much trouble.

    A big thank you also to Ludo, Denver and Joe who were friendly, helpful and reassuring both in the lead up to and on the wedding day.

    On the day the staff of Sopwell should all be recognised for how hard they worked and how courteous and helpful they all were, particularly the bar staff who had to work very hard!! and the housekeeper, waitresses and waiters. Two people I met personally were and Piers. They are all excellent ambassadors for your hotel.

    We have received so many compliments from our guests and the suppliers we used – commenting as to how much they enjoyed the wedding, how lovely the room was and the lovely atmosphere around the hotel. The back drop, sparkly flooring and table arrangements we chose were all delivered, set up and collected without any inconvenience to us. All this helped to make it a magical day for everyone.

    We had hoped to meet you before the wedding but unfortunately it was not possible – We are sure to visit Sopwell again soon and maybe we will have the pleasure of acknowledging in person then how happy we our that we held our daughters wedding in your hotel.
