Ant and Louisa – 30th August 2014
Terri Brice was the photographer for this wonderful August wedding www.terribricephotography.co.uk
“On the 30th August 2014, Ant & I had our wedding breakfast and evening reception at Park Farm Hotel and can honestly say it was a truly wonderful day that has provided us with beautiful memories for many years to come.
We got engaged in April 2012 and having stayed at Park Farm prior to the engagement we had no doubt in our minds that Park Farm was the place we wanted to celebrate our marriage. Upon our first appointment with Sue, we knew we were dealing with an absolute professional and someone we could trust with our special day. As someone with OCD qualities I rarely relinquish organisational duties but Sue definitely made me feel at ease so we booked our date there and then!
We visited Park Farm on several occasions leading up to the wedding, whether it be for a bar meal, or a surprise stay from my very thoughtful husband, and each time we visited we couldn’t help but get excited about our impending wedding. The venue itself is stunning with a beautiful setting and every member of staff is an absolute credit to the hotel and a pleasure to deal with when visiting.
We met with Sue a couple of months prior to the big day to finalise arrangements and I can honestly say Sue thinks of everything and once again we left Park Farm without a single worry. A couple of days before the wedding day we delivered the table decorations, favours etc and I presented Sue with a very detailed (OCD!) account of how I wanted things to look and Sue took everything on board down to the very smallest detail. It really was the very special touches that made the whole experience a truly wonderful one, for example my husband’s family do not live in the area and they all booked into Park Farm for a couple of nights and when we delivered suits to the hotel the day before the wedding the lovely receptionist made arrangements for them to be delivered to their rooms ready for their arrival.
Our journey from the church was lovely and I really felt quite emotional once the car turned into Park Farm and we were travelling down the beautiful drive way. From the moment we were greeted by a smiling Sue the magic begun and we enjoyed every single second of our time at Park Farm.
We opted for the Silver Served Carved Buffet which went down a storm with our guests and we received many comments about how wonderful the food was, even pleasing the fussiest of guests!
We were truly overwhelmed by the comments we received from our guests about the whole day, most saying ‘it was the best wedding’ they had ever been to and this is largely down to Sue and the staff at Park Farm.
There are not enough words to describe how thankful we are to Sue and her team and can only finish by saying that we whole heartedly recommend Park Farm for a wedding as we had the best day of our lives.
They treat you with the personal touch and never once do you feel like you are just a number in one of these ‘chain’ hotels. We will continue to visit Park Farm and celebrate many of our Wedding Anniversaries in years to come!
