Mr & Mrs ParkerSunday, 6th December 2015
I just wanted to drop you an email to express our thanks and gratitude for your help in the organisation of our daughter Helen's wedding last Sunday. It was the most wonderful day and everyone expressed how lovely everything was and how wonderful the venue was too. During the lead up to the wedding, all the wedding coordinators were extremely helpful and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. On the day itself (and at a meeting the day before), Justina officiated and organised everything to ensure timings were met and she was a wonderful assuring and calming influence. Every single member of staff we have dealt with at any point in time has been extremely polite and helpful. Everything was packed up after the event and left for us to collect the next morning in an extremely organised manner which was really helpful.
Mr & Mrs Kelly Thursday, 27th August 2015
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff at Old Thorns for the most fantastic day on Thursday 27th August. Both Natalie and I couldn’t have asked for any more – everyone from our wedding manager Natalie, to the chefs who prepared the amazing food, and to Tiffany and others who helped us in the months leading up the wedding were absolutely amazing and not only helped put us at ease, but also made the day go without any dramas!
The venue itself was immaculate, and being able to get in to the Hampshire Suite the evening before meant the day itself was much less stressful. Also, as we got a bit lucky with the weather, being able to head out to the 5th tee to get some photos with the amazing panorama behind really was the icing on the cake!
We both really have no negative things to say about the 18 months leading up to the wedding, nor about the day itself. Everybody who was with us throughout the day and evening also commented on how fantastic they thought the setting was, and how smoothly the day seemed to go.
We can definitely see why you put on so many weddings a year. The service we received was exemplary, the setting is amazing and, compared to similar sized venues, the costs were very fair. As I’m sure you can tell, we’ll be recommending you to any of our friends or family who are planning on getting married in the future.

I just wanted to send an email to say a huge thank you to you and the whole old thorns team for the most amazing wedding we could have hoped for. The day was truly perfect. The venue was amazing. The food was fabulous and the staff brilliant. The dj was also great and played music that was perfect for us. We truly couldn’t have asked for more it really was the best day of our lives. Natalie was beyond brilliant. We really can’t thank her enough. My dad was particularly impressed with her service level. (And it takes a lot to impress him!!!) Nothing was too much and she was there whenever we needed her. She really was so amazing as was the lady who helped me when I got a bit teary before going in the room!! It honestly makes me so happy to know what an amazing time everyone had. Please send my thanks onto everyone. Your help and patience in the process was hugely appreciated. I’m actually sad it’s all over!! All the guests said what a lovely venue it was. I can’t speak highly enough of you all. Our thanks again to you all

I just wanted to send you a email to thank you and everyone at old thorns for making our wedding day so special.
You were great answering all my questions I had and just made everything so smooth for us.
Natalie and the team were fantastic on the day and please could you pass on our thanks to them.
We received such a fantastic service from them all and Natalie was great in reassuring me on the day and made sure we were where we were supposed to be etc everything went to plan and there were no hiccups.
Also a big thank you for catering for the people with special dietary requirements- especially the gluten free people they couldn’t praise the food highly enough and said a lot of places don’t cater as well for gluten free people.
Once again thank you to everyone who played a part in our wedding day.

Lyndsey and LeeThursday, 1st November 2012
I just wanted to send a little message to thank you and all the staff there at Old Thorns for making our wedding day last Fri an amazing one.
Everything ran like clockwork. Justina was fantastic and on hand whenever we needed her.
The day didn’t run completely as planned as we ended up having a couple of medical emergencies, but the way the staff handled this was amazing.
All of the staff on that day, did extra and above what they would usually have too, so please can you pass on our sincere thanks.
I’d be grateful if you could forward this on to your manager/owner, so they can be proud of there staff. It’s not often people get thanked for doing a good job, so I wanted to make sure that didn’t go un noticed.
Thank you personally as well for helping me plan the big day. It truly was a day to remember.
