"Dear Bowood events team, We honestly can’t thankyou enough for giving us the best wedding day. Right from when we first booked the wedding, Ella has been amazing! When we had to cancel due to Covid restrictions, Ella quickly helped us arrange a new date. She has always been on hand to offer advice, make suggestions, answer any questions all in a timely manner. She has a wealth of knowledge and nothing was ever to much trouble. Her bubbly personality quickly puts you at ease and she makes everything seem perfect . Our table plans changed the day before and yet Ella, changed everything and reprinted the table plan. We couldn’t believe she managed to do it with such short notice!! Ella was there when I arrived at the hotel and I honestly felt relieved to see her. When we arrived at the Kerry Suite Ella introduced Rebecca. Rebecca was just so amazing too, she took control and we literally had nothing to worry about, because Rebecca went through every step with us. Rebecca took us out on a golf buggy and showed our photographer the best place to take photos. If there was any questions Rebecca was there to ensure everything ran smoothly. The waiting staff were very good too. Bowood you gave us the best day, Ella and Rebecca are absolutely fantastic at what they do and we can’t thank them enough for everything they did on the lead up to the day and on the day. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and there is nothing negative to say at all. Thank you to everyone at Bowood for making everything perfect for us."Michelle and Nick Selby, 5th November 2021
"Hey Ella, I'd firstly like to say a massive thank you to yourself, Rebecca, Becki and the rest of the team for making it a chilled, fun wedding! You have been such a rock throughout the process and I'm sure if it wasn't for you I'd of had many a melt down. Every little detail was covered which didn't end once we got back to our room where we found truffles and bottle of fizz! You guys are a credit to Bowood! Please do pass on this email to Lord Lansdowne. Everyone needs to know how fantastic you are!"Char & Matt Pearce, 30th October 2021
"Hi Ella! Thank you so much! We are still on cloud 9 and I don't think it's sunk in yet. I don't know where to start - Bowood have exceeded our expectations and a large portion of that is down to you! The grounds were stunning, our guests complimented the hotel rooms also, some even said its the nicest hotel they have ever stayed in. The hog roast was incredible. Rebecca was amazing too! She was super relaxed and her experience dealing with events showed. Nothing was too much to ask and she was so approachable! But you, I can't thank you enough for your kindness. You went above and beyond to facilitate a trip to my gramps tree and that touched my family when they found out where we had been! You helped our dreams come true in a location that has so much meaning to me and my family! Kindest regards and thanks.”Mr & Mrs Cole, 15th October 2021
"Good afternoon Ella, The wedding was excellent, Toby says "the best day of his life" and all family have commented on how lovely it was and what a beautiful venue we had chosen. We are so grateful for all your help and suggestions throughout the planning. Could you also pass on our thanks to Becky, she couldn’t have done more for us on the day, she was so lovely! We are already planning on coming back to Bowood and staying for our first wedding anniversary as we enjoyed it so much."Harriet & Toby, 8th October 2021
"Dear Ella, In all honestly, the wedding was AMAZING! Of course, I have to sing your praises for the entire planning process and making it so easy and stress free. For keeping me calm from the moment you came to collect me and take me to my interview, the outstanding music timings throughout the ceremony and for ensuring the room looked perfect. Everything we asked for felt like it wasn't an issue for anyone. Rebecca, Becca and the event team serving just rolled with our relaxed theme and made it pleasurable for the entire family. I feel the Chef's always get left out because they weren't visible but we have had comments from all the family members how incredible the food was. From the menu tasting, meals in the restaurant, through to the actual day, the food standard was impeccable. Rob has had dreams about the beef wellington! We can't thank you all enough and please make sure this is also shared with the team! The day was outstanding, We have already discussed coming back for our year anniversary to experience it all over again!"Jennie & Rob, 3rd October 2021
"I just want to take a moment whilst it’s all still fresh, to give a review of my experience with bowood hotel/ golf resort over the weekend. I honestly can’t recommend you enough. We were finally able to tie the knot this weekend after a covid postponement from last year, during the pandemic you went out of your way to reassure us and look after us. You rescheduled our date with zero penalties and fuss. Ella was a dream of a coordinator. I will sing her praises always. Such a hard working girl but also genuinely lovely as a person. For all the couples she must see. She still made us feel so special. She looked after us incredibly well and Thank you for our lovely gift you left for us in our room. Moving on to Rebecca who again managed the whole day. She moved mountains, directed guests and made sure our event was flawless. She was incredible to have by our sides on the day. A little shout out to George the barman who very efficiently made drinks for us all, despite being run off his feet. He was a lovely chap who my guests absolutely loved. All I heard all evening was how much of a legend George was. And also a massive shout out to those behind the scenes who made the room look so beautiful, including table laying, dressing the chairs and serving the food. The guy who helped take all my luggage up to the room on check in. And the very welcoming reception staff. The food in which was just beautiful, Thank you to the caterers. All in all I give this place a 10/10. I will always recommend for events. A general stay in the hotel because I already want to come back, the room was beautiful! And I was gutted there wasn’t enough time for me to use the spa. However on the day of check out we made the most of exploring the house and gardens. Which was free with our stay. A magical special time that I will remember for the rest of my life. Thank you all so much, with love the new Mrs Jones."Vicky Jones, September 2021
