Guest review, August 2018

Just attended a stunning wedding at this beautiful venue. From start to finish we were impressed with the quality of the day. The food and drinks served throughout the day were top notch, delicious and served beautifully. Every staff member we saw or spoke to was charming and helpful, clearly well versed in customer care. The master of ceremony was a ‘Peaky Blinder’ look alike which was very amusing twist and a classical quartet on the lawn was beautiful. Well done Arley Hall, as daytime guests we came away feeling very very happy.

We chose Arley Hall as our wedding venue this summer and we are so glad we did!! Arley is just stunning. Rachel and Kerry were brilliant and helped us plan our day just how envisaged it (all in 6 months!) ever at the end of an email or telephone, nothing was too much trouble! There was so much going on on the day, from the gardens to the hall and the barn that the day just flew by. I didn't have to worry about anything I had planned - Rachel sorted all the suppliers without me having to worry about a thing. We had a truly fantastic day, soaking up the atmosphere in the most beautiful surroundings, making memories we will never forget! The food was fantastic and commented on by all the guest as the best wedding breakfast they'd ever had. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Arley to any future bride and groom - what a special place it is!

 

Mother of the Bride,  July 2018

As the Mother of the Bride, I had visited numerous venues with my daughter for their wedding day and what made the decision to book Arley Hall in my daughters words “it’s the mystique feel of this place”. Arley Hall transformed into a delight on their special day, guests greeted on the grounds on the lawn with outside drinks, wedding breakfast served outside in the courtyard amongst the prettiest of surroundings and beautifully decorated by Flossies Wedding Designs. The ambience practically took your breath away once the evening came and lighting of candles appeared shining through! What truly gave their wedding venue the outstanding 5 star rating was without doubt Rachel and her fabulous team. They worked so hard in every fine detail possible to ensure both the bride and groom were kept relaxed and got the most out of their “special day” as possible. Rachel completely dedicates herself from the initial first meeting right up until your wedding day, she even returned a call to me on her day off! I will forever remember my daughter’s wedding for the rest of my life like it was yesterday. Thank You Rachel and all your team so much for giving us memories to treasure forever.

 

Hazel and Andrew, May 2018

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping us plan and host our wedding at Arley Hall. It was a truly magical day for us and we could not have wished for anything more memorable. The whole experience was fantastic from the organisation of the event, the hall itself, the beautiful Chapel and the Olympia Barn where we danced the night away. Rachel, you and your team did a brilliant job of looking after us and our guests. From the moment we arrived the staff were extremely friendly, attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The planning and attention to detail was excellent and is a great credit to all those involved. The food also was superb and beautifully presented. All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it, especially the lamb!. Please can you pass on our thanks to your very talented chefs. Our day was perfect in every way and we were so happy to have chosen Arley Hall for our special day. It will forever be a very special place in our hearts.

 

April and Ben, November 2017

We’d just like to say a big thank you for all your help on the wedding day. We received compliments from almost everybody saying how great the venue was and particularly on how well the event was managed, which was largely down to you. You worked incredibly hard to keep everyone happy and we really appreciated it.

Linda and John, December 2017

Arley Hall is enchanting and was the perfect setting for our wedding at the beginning of December 2017. From the first day we met the team who took care of us, to the end of the evening when the last guests left, I have never seen such a group of professionals, trained to the the highest standard but also enjoying what they were doing. All the food was faultless.

I knew it would be good but it exceeded my expectations in every way. It’s now a week later and our friends and family can’t stop sending messages about the fantastic time they had, and how happy everybody was. Believe me that’s quite an achievement for the Arley team. We looked at a lot of venues but the intimacy of Arley stood out. What a day, and what genuine warmth from the staff. Thanks is just not enough.

spend the most important day of our lives. We cannot take our eyes off the photos (I cry every time I look at them) so wanted to share a few of our favourites with you all…

 

Linda and Steven, August 2017

We wanted to email you to attempt to thank you for everything you all did to make our wedding day just perfect in every way. Words cannot begin to express the gratitude we have to yourself and the team for all of the effort you put into ensuring that every aspect of my extensive instructions were followed to the letter. The professionalism and calmness that the team brought to the running day was exceptional and second to none. A special mention to Lisa – AMAZING! Steve and Simon really made it feel like home before, during and since the wedding day when we have returned.You truly delivered everything you offered us three year previous to the day and from the moment we walked from the car park to view Arley that first time, we had no doubt that it was where we were meant to

 

Linda C, July 2017

We held our wedding at Arley Hall last Friday, what an utterly amazing experience, one we shall never forget. 



It was a small intimate gathering of 21 people and 2 babies, we had exclusive use of the hall for the day and married in the garden, the herbaceous border at 4pm. 



The management of the event from both Arley staff and Heritage Portfolio, the new caterers, was top class and left nothing for us to worry about. 



The food we had chosen for the wedding breakfast was exquisite and all our guests commented upon how beautifully it was presented and tasted superb.



I would recommend a visit to anyone, especially if you are thinking of a wedding venue, the atmosphere is just unique, the memories will stay with us forever, and it was definitely a dream wedding. 



Thank you to all staff involved, the service you provided was excellent, professional and friendly...be proud

 

Charlotte Booth, September 2015

Absolutely wow!! We attended a wedding on Thurs 10th August, and it was fabulous. Right from the moment we arrived the staff were so attentive, the attention to detail was superb. The ceremony was held in a beautiful room, followed by a blessing in the chapel. We had canapes on the lawn, along with a string quartet and lawn games, whilst photos were being taken.

The backdrop of the gardens was the best I have ever seen, the flower borders were beautiful. Then we had our meal, what can I say, the food was superbly cooked, and once again I have to complement the staff, especially Helen who spoilt us all day long. The evening was spent mostly outside under huge umbrellas with gas burners for those who felt a bit chilly, and other guests were in the dance hall listening to the band. Every whim was catered for, and once again the evening food was plentiful and delicious. Most people stayed in local hotels about 15 mins away.

We paid £18 for a taxi to the venue from The Mere Golf & Spa Resort, a minibus was laid on for our return journey. If anyone is thinking of booking this venue for their wedding, I simply can’t praise the place enough. I have been to many weddings, and this venue was the very best ever... Huge thanks to all of the staff involved!

 

Kerrie Cassel, September 2015

I really don’t know where to start with my thank you’s to you and all of the team at Arley.

We always knew we had chosen a very special venue, from the moment I walked up the driveway over 2 years ago, I knew I had to get married there. The hall, the gardens, Olympia barn….. It was all the perfect backdrop for our dream wedding, and the photos we’ve seen so far are just magical.

What I didn’t know until more recently was just how genuine, hard working and helpful all of the staff are. As I walked around the hall during the day, every face I saw was friendly and everyone was so lovely to talk to and had nothing but nice things to say to us and our families. They helped to make the day go smoothly with a sense of calm that we really needed. A very special thank you to Simon and his team who were there for our final meeting a few weeks ago, and helping set up on the morning of the wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for them and I can’t thank them enough. Please pass on our thanks to all of them.



Finally to you Shelagh, thank you for your patience and replies to every little question I had in the run up to the wedding. I needn’t have worried about anything as your team had everything covered. Thank you for our season pass and card. I’m sure we will bump into you and look forward to seeing you all again soon.

 

Hayley Carter , July 2015

We just wanted to drop you a quick message to say thank you so much to everyone at Arley for all their efforts on Friday and the lovely wedding card and annual pass gift (which I’m sure will be used frequently). The room etc was laid out perfectly in the morning and to the exact specifications we had discussed. It looked absolutely fabulous! Lisa made sure the ceremony and timings were spot on and all our guests commented on how beautiful the hall was and how attentive and professional the staff were, so thank you very much it really made our day that everything ran so smoothly.

Thanks again for all your efforts and hard work which is greatly appreciated. We had an absolutely amazing day which we will always remember.

 

Helen & David Begent , January 2015

We had the most amazing, small and intimate wedding earlier this year at Arley, just 30 guests, we were married in the Library with a wedding breakfast, on one big long table, in The Gallery. The staff, Simon, Lisa, Sarah & Karen were wonderful and the day was fantastic. We both work at Arley and know how good it is as a wedding venue, we wouldnt have considered anywhere else. Martin Hambleton an Arley preferred supplier took fantastic pictures and Juliet from Thoughtful Flowers, another Arley preferred supplier provided button holes, corsarges and flowers for the table and rooms that were perfect for our day. We want to say a huge thank you to everyone.

 

Aelred and Claire, November 2014

Just wanted to send a quick email to say a big Thank You! to you and everyone at Arley for making our wedding so lovely. The day ran perfectly, your staff were all so attentive, professional and polite and made us and all of our guests feel very welcome and perfectly looked after. We are delighted that we chose Arley for our special day and really appreciate all the attention to detail that you all put in, behind the scenes as well. We have received lots of lovely comments about the day. Thank you again, we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect venue with such lovely and attentive staff.

 

Linda and Ian Butterworth, August 2014

On behalf of Victoria and Lee, and all family and friends, we would like to thank the entire team at Arley Hall for helping to make the whole event a fantastic success. In the months preceding the big day, your team liaised superbly with Victoria and Lee, instilling in them the confidence that they had made the right choice of wedding venue. And on the day you did not disappoint – from 8am, when Victoria and her entourage arrived, until the last guest (me!) left at 1am, nothing was too much trouble for your attentive and friendly staff. You helped make it a fantastic day that everyone who was there will remember for the rest of their lives. Again, many thanks!
