My beautiful bride and I had our wedding here on Saturday 6th May 2017. Everyone at the hotel were amazing and did absolutely everything to make our day so special. The venue is superb, the staff are amazing and all the trimmings were spot on. I would just like to make a special mention to Becki, Rachel, Elisa, Holly, Mariusz and Oltion. You guys were absolutely awesome, thank you so much.

Hi Becki, We would just like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to you and your team at Bowden Hall for making our wedding day so special. From the night before when we checked in, until the morning after when we checked out; everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our guests have also praised you guys to us! The food was fantastic and everyone has told us how much of a great time they have had! Nothing was too much- and that means so much to us. The staff made our wedding day so perfect, everything ran smoothly and was even better than we could have imagined! A massive, whole hearted thank you from us both, words cannot describe how grateful we are! Thank you to you all.

Our wedding day was what dreams are made of! From the horse and carriage that i had dreamt of since i was a little girl to the star lit aisle that i walked down wearing my Princess Alfred Anglo dress, the room decor, food, venue, DJ everything was absolutely perfect. I know everyone is biased when it comes to their wedding day, but we even had WOW comments from our guests to say it was an incredible day and one that would be hard to top. We wouldn’t have changed a single thing- The staff at Bowden Hall (Especially Becky made our dream a reality)

Hi Becky, I just want to again thank you and all the staff at Bowden Hall for making our wedding day so special. We had an absolutely amazing day from start to finish. Kind Regards

On Saturday 3rd September myself & my fiancé tied the knot. We married at the beautiful hotel Bowden Hall in Upton St Leonard's. The whole day from start to finish was perfect, it was like my dream come true of a fairy tale wedding. My expectations were met, it was very pink! The staff were beyond amazing throughout, the day the food was just absolutely delicious from the canapés to the 3 course wedding breakfast it was a perfect venue for our wedding and I would highly recommend this hotel to any couple wishing to marry. Becki my wedding planner was also fantastic could not fault her.

We got married in August at St Mary's Church in Charlton Kings. We chose the beautiful Bowden Hall Hotel for our venue, set in 12 acres of land with a stunning lake view. Our wedding day was perfect from start to end and we wouldn't change a thing! We even had a sprinkle of good luck rain which added to the fun! Our perfect day would not have been possible without the excellent customer service and attention to detail provided by Becki and the rest of the team at Bowden Hall Hotel.

Last August we had the most fantastic wedding day. Bowden Hall was a fantastic venue. The buildings, staff and grounds made our day perfect in every way. It was everything we had wished for and more. The bridal party were made to feel so special and nothing was too much trouble. Staff were always on hand if anybody needed them and made the day flow like clockwork. The guests all commented on how beautifully presented the wedding breakfast was and the service. We highly recommend Bowden Hall as your wedding venue - we guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Our day was perfect from beginning to end. The stress of all the planning melted away when everyone at the venue sprung into action from early morning. Nothing was too much trouble and the organisation was excellent. We can't thank the staff and suppliers enough for providing a day that we will remember.
