As the parents of the bride we would like to thank Wivenhoe House for making their wedding day such a special occasion. We found all the staff to be so wonderful, polite and helpful, nothing was too much bother for them. On arrival the receptionists were so welcoming, the staff on the wedding day worked so hard to make sure everything went smoothly and to time, the waiters in the brassiere and breakfast in the morning were very attentive and also the ladies who cleaned the rooms were very friendly and helpful. Everyone made us feel welcome and are a credit to Wivenhoe House. We feel that we would have no hesitation in recommending Wivenhoe House to family and friends as a wedding venue.

The staff were very helpful and all the planning and communication was excellent. The ceremony, drinks reception and meal were equally seamless and the food was amazing. Everyone commented on the hotel, saying: “what a great find”. I would really recommend the venue, it was stunning.

Firstly we wish to thank you and your team for making our special day run so perfectly. We found Sophie exceptional on all the bookings, then of course there was Lionel, fantastic lovely man; you have a good team! The lady that served our group breakfast did a fantastic job, keeping us all of us happy with our choices and teas and coffees and freshly cooked fab food. Everyone was so impressed with the venue and the food. We can't thank you enough and we will pop over to see you once we return from honeymoon.

We felt completely in safe hands by the team who actively listened to what we wanted for our special day and were able to offer us a bespoke package that surpassed even our high expectations of a venue. From organising hotel rooms, creating our own wedding breakfast menu and wine list, the staff couldn't do enough to accommodate our wishes. Our family and friends were bowled over with the service they received from the staff throughout the entire day. A big thank you to Wivenhoe House and all its fantastic staff for making the best day of my life a reality. I'd recommend the hotel in a heart beat for your special day.
