Hayley and Jon – 3rd June 2017
“Our first impressions of Park Farm Hotel were excellent – with its long driveway, stunning gardens, modern vibe and welcoming staff, we knew it was the perfect venue for us.
Once we had confirmed our wedding date, we met our wedding coordinator, Sue, who was fantastic throughout the whole planning process. Nothing was ever too much trouble and we always got a prompt response to our questions/queries making everything so easy. On the wedding day itself, Sue and her team were fully involved, ensuring everything went to plan. They set up all of the decorations and equipment meaning that we could just arrive and enjoy our day without having to worry about anything. So many of our guests commented on how superb the staff were – we cannot thank them enough for making our guests feel so welcome.
Our ceremony took place in the Conservatory which was light and airy and opened out into a private garden where we had a drinks reception and canapés. There was plenty of space for everyone and we loved having the opportunity to use the beautiful gardens for various photographs.
Our wedding breakfast took place in the Colney Suite which had its own private bar and comfortably sat all 75 of our guests. The food and drink were excellent with a wide variety of menu choices to pick from and everything cooked to perfection. We attended a food tasting session prior to the wedding and would thoroughly recommend it – it definitely helped us select the best options for our guests, including those that had dietary needs. The portion sizes were excellent and we had a lot of compliments from our guests on how good the food was.
In the evening we had a live band which played until midnight along with a photo booth for extra entertainment. Again, Sue and her team helped to co-ordinate their set-up and ensure that everything was in place ready for our evening guests to arrive. At the end of the night some of our guests even continued the party in the 24 hour bar which was a good facility to have.
We stayed in the hotel overnight and was very impressed with the newly renovated room. It was larger than expected and had all of the amenities we could need – including complimentary chocolates and champagne. The hotel itself is very clean and had a nice mixture of old and new design features so has plenty of character. We have since been making the most of the free leisure membership and look forward to returning to stay next year to celebrate our 1st anniversary.
We had the most special, perfect day at Park Farm Hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding venue.
