Where do I start? Our day was absolutely amazing and we are both thrilled to have chosen Sopwell House as our wedding venue.

We knew Sopwell House and had spent some wonderful times there (dinners, lunches and even stayed once for Valentines day) so we were both aware of how special the hotel

and hotel staff could make occassions before we even came to look at the wedding rooms and discuss wedding planning. Jane, our wedding co-ordinator, I couldn't fault. Throughout the entire process she was so helpful, friendly and put us at ease about everything. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and she did a fantastic job with the team for our wedding.

The quality of the food has always stuck out at Sopwell House and despite having to serve a three course wedding breakfast to 200 guests, it was done with success. I have had so many comments from guests to say how impressed they were with the food and also how hot it was when served, considering how many guests we had. Sopwell House were lovely enough to allow us to offer our guests three options for starter, main and dessert (of course these had to be pre ordered). This was a great touch and very appreciated by our guests as its never easy to suit 200 people when you limit their choices but this certainly made it easier!

The St Alban Suite is an attractive room as it is but it can be made to look incredible with the right team working with you which Sopwell can help with.

Thank you for everything and all of your help Sopwell House, we couldn't have changed a thing!

We had our beautiful wedding reception in the Mountbatten Suite at Sopwell House, on New Year's Eve 2015/2016. It was a magical event, and the staff at Sopwell House were so helpful and pleasant to deal with both in the run-up to the event, and on the day itself. They ensured that we could just

enjoy our celebration and not worry about any of the logistical details.

The function room was nicely set up, looked very classy, and everything went perfectly smoothly. It was a nice bonus to see the firework display at midnight as well.

We stayed in one of the suites for the night, which was very luxurious and extremely comfortable.

Overall, we had a wonderful time at Sopwell House. Thank you!

We had the most perfect wedding day at Sopwell house. The venue is stunning and our wedding planner, Jane, made us feel totally at ease and in complete control. The preparations were so fun and I loved going to visit in the run up to the big day. At our meetings and at the food tasting, Jane

reassured us and addressed any questions we had. So many guests commented on how amazing the room looked at the wedding and how beautiful the guest rooms are. The food on the day was magnificent and our bridal suite was the perfect final touch to an incredible day. We have only happy memories of our wedding and we can't wait to revisit on our first anniversary!

amazing, the set up team, the on the day team and every other behind the scene hero that just delivered to make our day a dream come true.

Special thanks please to the chefs who prepared what was quite obviously a beautifully delivered superb feast. Please pass this on.

The serving crew, especially Daniela for looking after us all day. I hope you are feeling better now, we were both worried on the day. Please let us know.

Mandy, just a massive thank you to you for your attentive and caring persona on the day. Big Hugs from us both. Allowing us to see the room before it was wrecked (your words!!) was a stunning vista.

Jane, I said where do I start and I really don’t know other than to say I hope the gift says it all.
You were, and are, amazing and your love and caring nature shone through and we both honestly believed that you really cared about us and that we were not just another function. Xx

We will see you soon I am sure as we love the place and what it has done for us.

We are missing you and our continued visits to set up the big day...Sue needs another project!!

Both Sue and I have had many amazingly happy thank you cards saying that this was the best wedding they have ever been to from beginning to end....take that as high praise Sopwell House

Lots of love to all of you and thank you again

Charles and Sue...Mr and Mrs Low
