We would like to say a huge thank you to yourself, Dannielle and the rest of your team. From when we arrived at the Bedford Lodge on Friday lunch time to when we left on Sunday morning, the service, warmth and friendliness of your staff was amazing. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble. You all could not have made our special day any better. The food was delicious from buffets to sit-down dinner to breakfasts so please thank your chef and all of the kitchen and waiting staff.

Please also thank your gardeners for keeping your grounds looking perfect. It made such a difference to the wedding ambiance.

The Bedford Lodge is the perfect wedding venue and if all weddings there are as amazing as ours was, then they are all very lucky.

I am just so sorry that it is all over.

Once again, thank you all so much.

We had an amazing day and Dannielle and Suzie made it just perfect. We cannot thank and praise them enough! Dannielle kept me calm and moving when I started to panic and just seems to magically appear anytime we needed anything. She cared for our day with excellent thoughtfulness and didn’t miss a thing. It was definitely her ability to keep all calm and her constant smile even when we was being a pain that put her a cut above all the rest we felt like we was being cared for by someone that truly cared that we had the best day.

We would like to thank you for all your help leading to the day and all the work you put into our day.

We cannot thank you and the team enough.

From the bottom of our very full hearts we thank you.

The day was absolutely incredible and I can’t even put into words how amazing you and Dannielle were! The rooms looked so perfect for each part of the day, they were better than i ever could have dreamed of. So a massive thank you to you both.

Everyone who came said we should do an annual stay over at Bedford Lodge with a party, so hopefully we might be back every year for our anniversary 🙂

Thank you so so much and hopefully we will see you again soon

Thank you so much for helping making our day so special yesterday.

We and our guests had an amazing day, and the hotel staff could not be more helpful.

Danielle was fantastic and with the organising and running around all day and night making sure everything was as it should be.

Firstly, we want to thank everyone at Bedford Lodge that made our wedding the most perfect day! Rachel, your attention to detail and organisation skills are amazing and I felt completely at ease the whole time. Thank you so much. 

 Dannielle was an absolute trooper on the day. I couldn’t fault her at all. All of our guests commented on how hard she was working and the day ran so smoothly I honestly can’t thank her enough. She is a huge credit to your team. 

 All of the staff were incredible! But I want to particularly mention Suzie. She was unbelievable. We met the night before and she spent so much time making sure all of the little details were in place, which was super important to me. She really cares about her work and again, a massive credit to your team. 

Our day couldn’t have ran any better. And you are all to thank for that. 

Thank you so much again! We will be forever singing your praises. 

All our love.

Before we leave for our honeymoon I just wanted to pop you an email over to say how incredible our wedding was and how amazing the staff were on the day with making sure everything ran smoothly. Every single member of staffs was attentive, helpful and so polite and friendly. They really could not do enough for not just us but our guests too. Several people have commented on how impressed they were with the handling of any requests etc.

The whole Day went amazingly and we cannot thank you and all your staff enough! All the hard work and planning paid off and everyone has a brilliant time!

Thank you for all your help over the last year with getting our wedding plans off the ground! It’s a day we will never forget full of completely happy memories!

Room/bridal suite was amazing. The complementary use of the spa was a great bonus and excellent value for money. The food was absolutely top-notch,
all 70 of our guest commented on the excellent food. They also accommodated us with a request to ride horses and carriage around their driveway which
really made the afternoon even more special for us. The guests are still talking about what an amazing day it was 2 months later on! We would definitely
recommend it to anyone as a superb venue.

From Mr & Mrs Dwyer

 

2018

A superb venue. All of the staff go above and beyond to create a perfect day. The venue tailored everything to our dreams, executed the day perfectly and
then even helped us pack up all of our winter wonderland props. Our guests all commented that it was the best wedding they had been too, from the
superb organisation to the amazing food. The team created our perfect day and we will be forever grateful.

“We would also like to say that the Bedford Lodge was the perfect choice. It made our most memorable milestone wedding reception. Jonny A and his team did a sterling job looking after us all, nothing was any trouble. Our guests simply had a most wonderful time too, they all loved it and were so happy, which makes us all happy. You made a lot of planning and ideas become a reality and dream come true. Your enthusiasm, and your staffs for our special celebration and our time spent with you was very touching, including the many afternoon teas, and evening meals preceding the event since January.

It was also a lovely touch for Christine and I to stay in the bridal suite, such s luxury and was a real treat. We will always appreciate these finer touches of hospitality that most of us dream of, then our family breakfast in the Cambridge room and the warmth of welcome extended to our family and guests was well appreciated.”

September 2017 

A big thank you for making our wedding day so special.

In all honesty, the whole process from start to finish has blown us away!

Nothing was too much trouble, you responded quickly to our enquiries, including last minute changes to our menu to meet the dietary requirements for one of our guests.

It was a small affair but throughout the day staff were on hand but were not intrusive.

Our guests were equally impressed remarking that it was one of the best weddings they’ve attended. Finally, our hotel suite was amazing!

Dear Jonny and team

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for what was a truly amazing day last Friday. We could not have hoped for a better day. All the staff were incredible. The venue was amazing we only wish we could re live last week.

Thank you once again for helping us to have the day we will always remember.

October 2016 – Mr & Mrs Ritchie

Thank you for your email. I had planned to send you a letter this week but you have beat me to it.

We had the most wonderful wedding celebrations, from the minute we arrived on the Friday to when we eventually left on Tuesday.

It was more than we imagined it to be and we could not have wished for more.

Importantly, all of our guests had a fantastic time and they absolutely loved the hotel and how helpful all of the staff were; I am sure some of them will be visiting again.

Please pass our heartfelt thanks onto everyone involved in making our day so special, especially Jonny who was absolutely great and worked so hard for us.  A special mention to Martin the concierge, what a lovely man, so helpful and friendly and also to Alice who worked behind the bar at the evening reception. And, last but not least Manfred from Squires Restaurant who made Friday night such a great night for all of our guests (also the Sunday night too). I am sure there are many more so please do pass our thanks and gratitude to those above and anyone else that deserves it.

I am sure Bedford Lodge will become a  regular venue for us to visit so hope to see you again.
