Paul and Charlotte – 24th August 2014
Paul and Charlotte said their vows in our Colney Suite on what was a beautiful August afternoon with plenty of sunshine and only a few clouds around 1pm with over 50 friends and fmaily joining them for their special day.They enjoyed a barbecue for their wedding breakfast which was perfect in the sun. A buffet was served in the evening for over 120 guests. They had a beautiful red and white colour scheme and Ryan from Creative Clix was their photographer.
“On the 24th August 2014, Paul and I finally tied the knot and we wanted to express our gratitude to all the staff members who made our day so special.
In July 2013, we started looking at venues and Park Farm was one of them. Sue was lovely from the start. We immediately felt comfortable and welcome. She was happy to show us around the venue and outline the possibilities. We went away with a lovely brochure with all the information we needed and feeling very excited. It didn't take us long to decide that Park Farm was the perfect venue for us. Upon our second meeting, Sue was happy to listen to our requirements and having never arranged a wedding before, was also able to offer much needed advice. We booked the date there and then.
Sue helped us feel totally relaxed on the run up. We had a meeting a couple of months before to finalise the arrangements and chose our honeymoon suite. I dropped off all the table decorations and favours a few days before, the cake was delivered the day before and flowers arrived on the morning of the big day.
The big day itself was out of this world. My bridesmaid, Mum and I got ready at the hotel and we didn't have to worry about anything. The photographer was shown to our room as was the registrar and a lovely bottle of champagne for us to toast before putting my dress on. Sue made sure that everything was in the right place and looked after Paul when he arrived. I loved walking to the Colney suite from our room where other hotel guests watched. I felt like royalty.... like a princess.
We chose to have a bbq for our wedding breakfast and it was cooked to perfection. The food was amazing and plenty of it for everyone, the staff were lovely; our wedding guests were relaxed and well looked after. Our toast master made sure that speeches went in sequence and the thank you gifts were ready to be given out. We didn't even notice the DJ setting up and were genuinely shocked when the evening guests started arriving. The whole day passed in a flash. Paul and I had the best day of our lives.
I can not think of enough superlatives to explain how special our wedding day was. The venue provides a beautiful back drop for our photos and the staff create a wonderful relaxed atmosphere that put Paul and I at ease and our guests in turn. We've had wonderful feed back from all our guests and that means the world.
Sue; Thank you so much for everything that you and your team did for us. It will certainly be a day we will remember for the rest of our lives for all the right reasons.
