"We had a fantastic day, it couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you for helping us to have the day we wanted. It was all organised so well and all of our guests have said how much they enjoyed the day. Rebecca was great and she made everyone at ease - please pass on our thanks. We were so lucky with the weather too! The whole weekend was amazing and we wouldn’t change a thing. You played a massive part in that and made it stress free for us. Thank you for our card and gifts, they were a lovely surprise!"Hollie & Leighton - 19th September 2020
"We just wanted to thank to you, Rebecca and all involved staff for making our wedding day so special and memorable. Thank you for looking after us and making everything so relaxed. Bowood is beautiful and the hotel rooms are gorgeous too. Thank you so much for your lovely card and mugs. That was really kind of you. Also thank you to Bowood for the Prosecco. That was a lovely, unexpected touch. We look forward to visiting Bowood again and will definitely be back for our first anniversary. My friends are planning a Spa day and Mick wants to come back and play golf. All our guests had a fantastic time and we had loads of lovely comments about our Wedding with you. Looking forward to our next visit."Lynn & Phil - 6th September 2020
"We absolutely had a FANTASTIC day! I would recommend Bowood as a wedding venue to anybody - it is absolutely fab! You guys are awesome! 10 out of 10 and a 100% satisfaction - thank you to you all from the bottom of our hearts, you all made our day absolutely perfect. A big, big and even bigger thank you goes to you Ella, you are so professional and highly organised, but you are approachable, kind and you sort things out with a clear and focussed vision - I was very impressed!"Viv & James, March 2020
"Ella, We just wanted to drop you a line to thank you and your team for the fantastic day and service you provided for Natalie and Adam’s wedding in December. We really couldn’t have wished for a more enjoyable experience – for your help and support in the preparation for the day, particularly with Martin’s speech and ensuring that the technology worked perfectly, to our arrival the day before and on the day itself when Emma’s (on reception) enthusiasm and support was great. The chauffeur of the golf buggy and MC were also worthy of particular thanks as they were so helpful. However, we must say all the staff we came into contact with were extremely helpful and courteous. All our guests said what a great day it was, from the delightful ceremony, the excellent food and hospitality, the setting and surroundings. A number of them are planning to re-visit Bowood as are we! We would have no hesitation in recommending Bowood as an event location. We are sure that our excellent experience was due in no small part to your prior organisation and planning and we would like you to pass on our thanks and good wishes to all involved."Sue and Martin Green, December 2019
"Ella, Just want to say thanks for a great day. Everything from before booking the wedding to clearing the room after was so easy and organised. Special thanks to you and Rebecca for the actual day, comments included best food ever had at a Wedding!"Peter Buck, December 2019
"Oh Ella it was amazing we had the best time! We have received so many compliments of the food, the venue and Rebecca! What a star she is! We had such a lovely time, everything was brilliant and the turn over was fab. Highlights were Food, Rebecca, Ease of decor, Friendly staff, Breakfast area in the morning. It was faultless. Everything was perfect! Thank you so much for it all it was amazing!Gabs & Ant, Decembert 2019
"Ella, Thank you so so much for an amazing experience. We honestly cannot put enough emphasis on the fact that we have been blown away by the whole team at Bowood. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone, they were all so friendly and welcoming. The personal touches were great, and the fact that even in the restaurant at breakfast, or the bar the previous night, we were being congratulated by staff was lovely. Bowood and the team should all be very proud of the service that they give because I have been to a lot of hotels and never come across such consistent service. A massive thank you to both you and Rebecca who made our day what it was (you two are like the A team!!). It was like having friends managing things for us, and really made the day special. We would highly recommend to anyone, and we are already planning our first anniversary visit back to see you!"Mr & Mrs Dowdeswell, December 2019
