Our wedding in November 2016 at Ashridge House was absolutely perfect. From my research, Ashridge was the clear winner as there are different rooms for each part of the day. Our coordinator, Charlotte was lovely and very helpful, providing advice and ideas throughout the process. She set all of our favours and table names out on the day and liaised with our suppliers for us! The food at Ashridge really is fantastic, and this was something that all the guests commented on. The service was flawless and all staff were also really friendly, from the waiters to the receptionists, nothing was too much trouble. All staff seemed genuinely happy to be working there! Throughout the whole process there was a very flexible, professional and personal approach. I can’t recommend Ashridge House enough, it’s a hidden gem and is certainly worth the journey.
Alison and Toby Cotton
All the guests were overwhelmed by the beauty of the house and gardens, the fantastic catering and the impeccable service received from everyone concerned throughout the whole day. A friend described the wedding as feeling "lavish yet relaxed" and we would wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment. Even though the setting was grand the event formal, there was a sense of warmth about the occasion which came from you and the other staff appearing very much in control, while at the same time remaining discretely in the background.

I would like to make sure that you receive our families’ grateful thanks and full admiration for what you and your team accomplished at my daughter Kim’s wedding. Your staff and all of the Ashridge personnel were exceptional and our guests were hugely impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the wedding. Please accept our grateful thanks and appreciation of a truly superb event, beautifully planned and executed by Ashridge and particularly by your coordinator Jean.
David and Katie Webster
Ashridge House was an absolutely stunning venue. The staff are professionals of the highest standard, and could not have done more to make our day completely wonderful. As it should have been, our wedding day was by far and away perfect, with every minute detail covered, from the setting, the layout, the assistance in planning, the floral arrangements and the food. The staff were friendly, genuinely happy to be a part of the big day, and dedicated to making this the happiest day of our lives.
Colin Mann, Father of the Bride
I have to say, and not just being biased as the father of the bride, that Ashridge was superb and would strongly recommend the venue as the number one choice for weddings in the UK. Many thanks for making our day so special.
Vicky and David Jenkinson
