wedding on Fri, 30th of July, 2021
Just wanted to check in to say a HUGE thank you to the entire Farnham Castle team for a truly magical day!

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience from start to finish. From our perspective, the day ran seamlessly and we most definitely wouldn’t have known the kitchen team were a man

or two down!

The Gate House was such a beautiful setting to start the celebrations and the getting ready facilities were fantastic. It was a great little haven for all to calmly prepare for the day ahead.

Thank you so much to you and Zoe for all you did throughout the day to ensure everything went as smoothly as it did, including making sure all small people took their role very seriously! Many guests remarked how well they walked down the aisle haha.

The food was showstopping and truly INCREDIBLE and I cannot count the number of comments I’ve had about the steak and chip canapé. I’m still dreaming about eating the entire wedding breakfast again a fortnight on!

A big shout out to your bar team for keeping the drinks flowing (no mean feat at an Irish/Scottish wedding) and serving those that wanted a few wee late drinks after hours. Special thanks to the lovely Bar Manager who went above and beyond to help a slightly tiddly guest and her housemate get a taxi home too!

So many of our friends and family have gone out of their way to send us messages, specifically about how brilliant they thought the venue was and we couldn’t agree more. We are just over the moon to have been lucky enough to have our special day in such an amazing place and to have been looked after by an absolutely terrific team.

We cannot believe how lovely a day it was. Everything seemed to go seamlessly, and the staff were fantastic. We cannot thank you enough for looking after us during the day, and the evening operations manager was so fun. He even let us continue partying until the early hours in the bar. We felt

completely at ease and loved every minute of it. All of our American guests loved the castle, and the private tour they arranged, which we were so grateful for. Over the past few weeks, many of our guests have told us how much of a good time they had and how fantastic the venue was. It is a testament to how well the venue is run.

I am still coming down from the high of the day but wanted to get this over to you asap.
I cannot put into words how extremely happy we were with the organisation leading up to and on the day of the event. Their attention to detail, and how tentative every staff member was to us and our guests, was

all great.

In addition the little extra touches like being handed champagne after our first dance and having all of our gifts and a bottle of champagne waiting for us in the room!
Everyone has got in contact with us, saying how amazing the evening was and how well everything was organised and flowed. We cannot thank you and the team enough.

We just wanted to send a massive thank Farnham Castle for everything they did for our wedding at the weekend. Everyone we have spoken with has said it is the best venue they have ever been to, with the best service, best food and the best wedding they have ever experienced. We chose Farnham Castle

because of the service and the staff. They did not disappoint us. We are still reminiscing parts of the day and we wish we could do it all over again. Everything was just perfect. We cannot say thank you enough. We are so grateful to be able to have the wedding of our dreams even in COVID times. There was so much emotion on the day.

We just wanted to say how much fun we had, and completely and utterly the best day ever yesterday. Everyone has been commenting on how nice the venue was and how lovely the staff were. Totally brilliant - and you really made the whole thing very easy for us from start to finish in terms of all

preparation and planning. So much so that the day itself was an absolute breeze! I am sure there was much hard work going on behind the scenes, but from front of house it looked effortless.

The rain didn’t put a damper on it, and I am hoping for some good rain shots as people cowered under bouquets and other useless rain-shielding implements! When Tom releases the photos we will send you a couple of the best ones.

Thanks once again for making our best day happen!

We both wanted to say the most massive thank you to everyone for making our wedding quite so magical (and taking all our stresses away!).

We had the best day imaginable and know all of our guests did too. They all thought the venue and all staff were truly amazing and raved about the food!

very special thanks to Giulia and Dan and to everyone else who was working on the day (and the next day trying to get all of our stuff together - who knew we had so much!).

Thank you very much again!

We cannot thank you and the team at Farnham Castle enough for everything you did to make our wedding day a dream come true!! It was the best day of our lives and we will never forget it. We wish we could do it all over again!! The venue, staff, catering and accommodation were first class and we’ve

What can I say about this wedding venue it is absolutely beautiful the food was perfect for our special day but most of all our wedding coordinator Heather was just simply amazing. There was nothing that was too much for her she made us feel like we were the only wedding that mattered. Me and my

husband felt so much love for heather we almost didn't want her as our wedding coordinator but as a guest at our wedding. It is simply no wonder why she has been shortlisted for wedding coordinator of the year but too us and I'm sure other wedding couples she has dealt with she is already the wedding coordinator of the century and the outcome of the voting won't change that for us

Mrs Kellymarie Redpath
I’ve always wanted to get married in a castle and when we viewed Farnham Castle both myself and my fianc at the time loved everything about it. the oldness, the character, the history, the feeling from the castle and it helped having the rooms on site as we had a lot of family travelling from

Scotland. The feeling we got from the staff, we knew they would make our day perfect for us. We didn’t look at any other venue and had pretty much decided before we even left our first visit that this was the place for us.

We married here a month ago. It was the most amazing day, in large part down to all the staff at Farnham Castle. The venue speaks for itself - a stunning backdrop for the occasion, both inside and the grounds. The staff are what really makes the difference here. Everyone we dealt with from beginning

to end was incredibly helpful. The day itself ran like clockwork, we didn't have to worry about a thing. A special thank you to Natalie, our wedding planner who was amazing. Also the catering staff: the food was sublime, far above the usual standard of wedding food. They were also wonderful at creating a menu around my allergies - down to creating a new dessert. All wonderful. Thank you.

We instantly fell in love with the castle from the moment we saw it. We were shown around as were a number of our guests before the day and in every case we were all made to feel welcome. From our taste testing to our meeting with our wedding coordinator, both of which were very professional we did

not go into the day worrying about any of the details. Our entire wedding day ran very smoothly and everything from getting ready in the morning to breakfast the next day exceeded expectations. The entire staff were always happy to help out with any questions or issues that popped up on the day but I would like to specifically call out our wedding coordinator, Patrick, who went above and beyond to make sure that we had the perfect wedding. I cannot thank everybody enough for the personal touches and attention to detail.

Loved the venue and the fact that guest could stay over the following day, it was a fairy tale wedding
Mrs Frances Spence
We booked Farnham Castle partially because of the history associated with it and the beauty of the building and surrounding area, But what really stood out was the quality and decor of the areas we would be using on the day - from the gatehouse which offered the perfect place for a bride to get

ready in to all the areas where the ceremony and reception were held and finally the beautiful honeymoon suite.

Mrs Marion Southam
We walked into the venue and knew straight away it was for us. Loved the venue, location and also the package with no hidden extras. The staff made it for us as we had total confidence in them and they did not stumble at any stage.
Mrs Katy Fernandes
The castle is stunning and the service from the staff is outstanding.
Dr Sarah Bonham
It was the best venue we saw and the staff were excellent. It had accommodation at a reasonable price and had everything in one place. All other venues we saw looked too much like conference centres.
Mrs Yasemin Gilling
Because it was stunning, unusual and exceeded all our expectations! The staff were the icing on the cake!
Mrs Katharine Stonestreet
Impressive venue that has been really tastefully refurbished - beautiful gate house; the simple and elegant ceremony room; the grand (but not over the top) dining room; and the stunning bridal suit topped it off. Good layout and room flexibility. Convenient location in terms of transport. Being able

Farnham Castle is a truly remarkable venue. The staff, catering and venue involved are fantastic..

It is a beautiful venue, with lots of space. Good amount of accommodation, which was important for us as a lot of our guest had far to travel. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly and efficient. Everything went smoothly and we had a fantastic day. Dr Sarah Bonham

They literally couldn’t have done more on the day. They made both brides feel special throughout. Always making sure we had a drink in our hands. So many guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. They accommodated all sorts of requests! Food was out of this world- hard on a large

Where to start….

From the maintenance of the beautiful grounds and gardens to the impeccable service throughout the day it was for us absolutely perfect! The food requires a special mention and was incredible both in taste and presentation. We didn’t see any plates that weren’t empty and

our guests are still telling us how delicious it was. Also thank you to Sean who was extremely attentive on the day and a real asset to your team.

Of course none of this was possible without you. From the moment you were appointed as our events co-ordinator you put us at ease. You have always been very understanding and helped us wherever you could. The day ran absolutely seamlessly and we are sure that this is because of your hard work behind the scenes.

Thank you so much for making our day one we will never forget and we hope to be able to enjoy a picnic on our anniversary up at the keep.

Best wishes,

Farnham Castle is not only a beautiful wedding venue but the team are fantastic and helped make my day absolutely perfect.

Everything was attended to and I didn't have a worry at all leading up to or on the day. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a flawless venue and wedding team!
This venue is absolute perfection. My daughter and her fiancé got married on Sunday and I cannot fault, in any way, the whole process. From the initial booking 2 years ago until the event, Harriet and the team have worked tirelessly and professionally to ensure everything went as planned. Nothing

was too much trouble, we only had to ask and it was done. We have had so many lovely comments and are overwhelmed at how magical the day was.
