Wedding Stories

August 2019

We honestly can’t thank any of you enough for your all your help and support before and during the wedding. Isabel, thank you for your professionalism when answering my numerous call and emails and for putting my mind at rest when planning the wedding.

Gabby and Beth were amazingly the day before the wedding and on the day. Thank you to Gabby for going over and above by threading all of the wooden hearts with ribbon, she honestly was such a saviour. You really did make us feel ‘at home’ and allowed us to get on with what we needed to do with no hitches. Beth, thank you everything you did in the evening and for the smooth running of the final events. The food was also amazing and everyone really enjoyed it throughout the day. The toast master, Steve, was truly marvellous. Everyone loved the tour and he did a great job at making us all feel at ease.

In all, everyone at Horsley Estate made us, our families and friends extremely welcome and for going over an above. It made our day so special. I really can’t rate any of you highly enough and while the beautiful surroundings obviously helped, it was the care you all took to make sure everything ran smoothly that made the day just out of this world.

As an additional point, we used your recommended suppliers for the DJ, Mirror, flowers and fireworks and they all did an exceptional job.

We honestly can’t thank any of you enough and our friends and family have all said how amazing the venue and the day was. We couldn’t recommend you highly enough.

We look forward to returning next year on our anniversary!

Hi Isabel

We had the most amazing day, everything was perfect. I have been meaning to contact you and write a review but just not had time. The staff were excellent, the food was great and everyone had a fantastic day. I really felt the refurbishment made such a difference to the overall look and was really happy that it was ready for our wedding day. 

Thanks for all your help arranging our day.

Hi Isabel

Greetings from Mauritius!

Just a quick email to say thank you for all your help in the run up to the wedding. We had a lovely time despite the weather.

Thank you also to Luke who ran the day very well despite surely being knackered - he never stopped! The girl who took over in the evening was great too although we can’t remember her name!

The food was brilliant, thank you to Ollie, and I have had multiple guests say to me in the days after the wedding that they were amazed that salmon could be cooked so succulently in large quantities.

Hi Isabel,

Many thanks for the part you played in making our wedding day at Horsley Towers such a memorable time. All our guests had a fantastic day and were full of praise for the venue. It is such a beautiful place and the accommodation in the Towers was very popular! Our wedding photos are stunning with such a lovely setting….

….We would like to thank you all for all the hard work which goes in to hosting such an event and we would definitely recommend Horsley Towers as a wedding venue.

Dear Isabel and Kate

Adam and I had a wonderful wedding.  We cannot thank you and your team enough! We have received a professional service that has reassured me throughout. 

My Husband and I have been impressed with Kate, Isabel, Gabby, Andreas, our chef and all of the staff at Horsley Towers from our initial viewing to our wedding day.  They went to great lengths to ensure we were happy and for that we are truly grateful.  Although other wedding suppliers let us down on our day, the experience we received when we arrived at Horsley Towers on our wedding day was unforgettable, reassuring and wonderful.  We highly recommend.

Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the food and beautiful venue.  We have no hesitation in recommending you for weddings and work functions.

Hi Isabel

I hope you are well, thank you so much for your email.

Sorry for my very late reply, we seem to have been the only people on our honeymoon with no sustained wifi and I don't know where time has gone since coming back!

We had the most amazing day Isabel, absolutely beyond expectations - we are so grateful for your work as a team to not only create but execute the day with such care and professionalism. Nothing was too much across the board. We will write with feedback before the month is through, it was absolutely perfect and that was echoed by all of our guests who loved their time at the Towers.

Hope you have a lovely weekend planned, please pass on our best to the team.

Many thanks again for everything and kindest regards

Dear Kate,

Thank you so much for giving Gem & Adam a dream wedding.

Everything was beautiful and elegant right down to the finest details. The setting is out of a fairytale picture book. The accommodations were lovely, comfortable and clean. The food was delicious and the staff were the best anyone could ask for. They were all just very well trained, friendly and helpful. Any problems that needed to be solved or detail that needed attention, the staff took care of with wonderful grace. I can really tell the staff enjoy their job and put their hearts into the Horsley Towers. Everyone said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. It was above and beyond ours expectations.

Thanks to Isabel, Gabby, Ginta and the rest of the team (Front & Back of house). You do have a fantastic team as well as a beautiful venue.

I put a review on trip advisor for you guys. Really WELL DONE!

Once again, Thank you!

Gemma & Adam: The Bride & Groom



January 2019

I wanted to send you a quick email to say how much Mike and I enjoyed our menu tasting last night.

All the staff were absolutely brilliant and very helpful. Please pass on our thanks to Andreas, Johnny and Tom for all their help. It was a brilliant service all evening and we could not have been happier. The reception staff were also very helpful, and the food was wonderful - we're so excited to get to the day now, just so we can eat it again!

We are so pleased we chose De Vere Horsley Estate as our wedding venue and I think it's important to say thank you when people to things really well, so thank you :)

Let me know when we need to book our final arrangement appointment with you - I can't wait!

All the best,

Thank you very much! 

The team were great on Saturday, and the place looked so nice. We received many comments on the polite staff, food, and how lovely everything looked so please do pass on our thank you to everyone. I shall send a card soon. Special mention to Steve, he really is great and so nice you include this in the package - I wouldn't of gone for a toastmaster otherwise but he really made the day special for us at the venue. 

Thank you also for the lead up, you put my random emails into order! And made me feel confident in the venue. 

Thank you again.

September 2018

Apologies for not emailing sooner! I feel like the time since our wedding has gone so quickly!! 

We had such a wonderful day, it really did meet and even exceed our expectations. We just want to do it all over again now! 

Thank you so much for all of your help with everything, we really do appreciate it. You were so lovely to work with and very patient in answering my constant questions!! We also wanted to say that Iwona (apologies if this spelling is incorrect) was absolutely wonderful and so helpful the night before our wedding when my sister and I came to set up the room where myself and the bridesmaids got ready. She was also so attentive on our wedding day and a really lovely person to have around. She even brought up my bouquet to mine and Edward’s bedroom which was very sweet of her! 

Lastly we just wanted to say how incredible Steve Eggleton was!!! He really was such an integral part to making our day perfect. 

All the best and thanks again for everything. 

Hannah & Edward: The Bride & Groom


A huge belated thank you to you and your team for looking after us on our big day.  

You guys were simply amazing and we had our dream wedding, it's just a shame it was over so quickly! We barely had time to draw breath. That said, everyone said how amazing your venue is and you guys made it just perfect.  There are so many amongst you who pulled out all the stops… to name a few;

Luke - he should be Cool Hand Luke - never flinching under pressure
Chef - the food was amazing as if he was serving for 2 - but for 100… Brilliant
The servers, myself and our guests loved them
Steve - what a joy to have him around keeping people on track and us! Again, he was singled out as a superstar
The bar manager (sorry we forgot his name) and team... Great service, thank you!
Everyone else (hotel staff especially)
And not forgetting you Isabel… you really delivered!!  THANK YOU

We look forward to coming back to where it all began next year.

Peter & Penny: The Bride & Groom


August 2018

We had the most amazing day and even the build-up, all fantastic! 

Thank you so much for all of your hard work, the whole team, the whole venue, the whole setup was superb. Whilst everyone was amazing we especially wanted to thank you, Luke, Andreas and Noel.  The "customer facing" team were brilliant; the food too - literally excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, both in preparation for the day up to the day itself. Money and time, very well spent! Beautiful and so grateful to all involved, 5*!

Mr & Mrs L: The Bride & Groom 


July 2018

The wedding day was fantastic and we had the best day! Thanks to you and the team for all your help.

The day went really smoothly and the team were integral to making that happen. The hotel manager upgraded my room from the Horsley Place to the Towers the night before which was really great and the events manager on the day was really helpful too. I would definitely recommend Horsley Towers to anybody else looking to get married. The venue itself was also beautiful and all our guests were impressed!

Thank you again and I'll be in touch for the anniversary stay

Linda & Mathew: The Bride & Groom


June 2018

The day went perfectly. We had fun, memories to look back upon and our guests were very happy and all thoroughly enjoyed the day.

We had comments of "the best wedding we have ever been to" which was extremely gratifying. All of you played a massive part ensuring that we received the perfect wedding. A big thank you to you all.

Mr & Mrs H: The Bride & Groom


I wanted to send an initial email to say thank you so much for pretty much everything, not just on the day, but all the days leading up to the day.

It really was a wonderful day for the both of us and our friends and family (although, let's be honest, the venue itself sells itself!). Everyone had a fantastic time and we are grateful to absolutely everyone involved in the day, from yourself and Kate, to the wait staff, bar staff, fantastic chefs (the food was top notch) and those tidying up (until so late, we noticed).

I would also like to say that both Steve, the toastmaster and Steven, the DJ, was both great. Both again, so approachable and amenable to everything.

Caroline & Martin: The Bride & Groom


May 2018

Our wedding day at The Towers ... was as Michael said "perfect". The care that was taken to give us the day we had wanted and imagined meant a lot to us both.

Luke and the whole of his team were superb; kind, considerate, professional, relaxed and made the whole day and evening run 100% smoothly which allowed us to enjoy our day without any worries.  Please do let them know from us,  how much we appreciate all their hard work to give us the best day!  We would also like to acknowledge how delicious the food was and thank Ben for that. Our guests were very impressed too - "best food we have ever had at a wedding".  Not easy to deliver such a high standard to a large group of people. The service was also perfect. 

I would also like to say once again Isabel, a big thank you to you for holding all our ideas and helping me when I felt overwhelmed during the planning of our day!

We are looking forward to coming back next year to celebrate our anniversary. You all made our day so special. 

Tanya and Michael: The Bride & Groom


April 2018

Kate, Luke, Ginta, Iwona and the rest of the wedding team (apologies I don’t know all of you by name).

Having finally taken a breath and now being back to reality, I can reflect on our truly magical day.

Our guests were thrilled from start to finish; this was our most important request and this is what you executed.

The day flowed from start to finish with ease; ‘never a dull moment’, the food was delicious and the service impeccable.

The barrel bar exceeded our expectations along with the little touches as a team we all made possible (ice cubes, Aperol drinks, fresh fruit).

‘Attention to detail’ mentioned to Layla and I as well as the ‘singing waiters’ (chefs) performance which filled the room with emotion, ecstasy and complete surprise.

The wedding breakfast room looked completely stunning. That worked out perfectly leading to the terrace and steps!

We can’t thank you enough; you’ve help to create memories which will never ever leave us.

Much love x

Sam and Layla: The Bride & Groom


March 2018

Please pass on our sincere gratitude to everyone that was involved in making our day as special as it could have been. We appreciate the hard work that would have gone on behind the scenes to make everything run smoothly.

Dawn & Stuart: The Bride & Groom


March 2018

The support we received leading up to the day was excellent. It put us at ease to know things were in good hands and I don’t honestly think we could have wished for anything more from either you and your team or the suppliers we chose.

The Great Hall looked beautiful for the ceremony and was stunning for the wedding breakfast - everyone thought it was a gorgeous setting and all the waiting and bar staff were courteous and professional. The food was fantastic and everything was cooked to perfection. I had raved about how good the food was and we were not let down at all.

We are so glad we chose Horsley Towers as our venue.  A simply magical place supported by a thorough, efficient and professional team.

Christine and Bruce: The Bride & Groom


March 2018

Our wedding day was the best, everything seemed to go like clockwork.

Iwona was amazing, she was very professional, making sure nothing was a miss. Also thanks to you, Kate and Carly, for your emails, keeping me up-to-date with the progress, answering my silly questions... we are so happy that we picked De Vere Horsley Estate, you have all done an amazing job, the food was 5 stars – we had compliments from every guest, even the evening guests loved the buffet.

We are very much looking forward to coming back next year, so whenever we can book, we will book it.

Joelle: The Bride

Claire & Andy: The Bride & Groom

We really want to say the hugest thank you to you both for helping us plan the most amazing wedding. Please could you also pass on our thanks to Natasha who was fabulous on the day and made everything seem stress free. The food was fantastic and all the staff on the day were so professional and friendly. We are so glad we chose De Vere Horsley Estate for our wedding and we really did have the best day ever. We have had many comments from friends and family that this was the nicest venue they had been to. I wish we could do it all again. We are already looking forward to our anniversary stay next year.

Rebecca & James: The Bride & Groom


September 2017

Thank you so much for helping plan our amazing wedding. Everybody has been so helpful towards us and you all certainly made our day as special as possible. We also want to pass on a huge thank you to Natasha, she was excellent and I've never had somebody work so hard for us before, nothing was too difficult for her and took it all in her stride. The venue and weather was beautiful and we will remember it for the rest of our lives, we will see you at De Vere Horsley Estate next year for our wedding anniversary!

Carl & Victoria: The Bride & Groom


September 2017

We had an amazing wedding at De Vere Horsley Estate and all of our guests had an amazing time. The team at Horsley could not have been more helpful and kind. They worked with us and fulfilled our every request. I'd like to send a special thanks to Steve and Catherine who were absolutely fantastic during the day. We could not be happier with the day and really appreciate all you and the team did to accommodate us. Our guests kept saying what a wonderful venue it was and how nice the staff are. Thanks again and we really had a magical big day at the towers.

Aaisha and Okezie: The Bride & Groom


August 2017

I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for being so incredibly hospitable towards me on Sunday. I truly appreciate all of the help you gave me. Vanessa and Sathya had a wonderful day. Please pass on my thanks to your team as well as Kate and Carly who had the patience of a saint in the last few weeks of what felt like endless emails.

Vanessa & Sathya (Heather – The Wedding Planner)


July 2017

We had an absolutely fantastic day.  Everything ran so smoothly from our arrival, to the canapes and the meal - and everything had been set up perfectly. Thank you for accommodating us with after hours phone calls and meetings and for being so professional and friendly in equal measure. All the staff on the day were just lovely, from Andreas at the bar to all of the waiting staff - everyone did a brilliant job.  

Annabel & Andrew: The Bride & Groom


June 2017

In the lead up to the big day Carly helped us with every tiny detail. She answered every question, offered advice and made sure that we had considered everything. She recorded every request and made sure it was all viable and communicated to all required. She showed patience and good humour and was a pleasure to work with. The chef created a bespoke vegetarian menu and allowed us to offer our guests choices for every course. On the day the food was truly outstanding. We must also offer specific thanks and praise to Natasha who was invaluable support on the day. Sshe ran around after every request, nothing was too much trouble. Some evening guests arrived early so she sourced additional chairs for them to join the wedding breakfast that were dressed to match all the other chairs. We ran late during the wedding breakfast but she made sure we weren't rushed, and the whole event flowed brilliantly.

So in sum, we can honestly collectively your staff made us feel like this was the only wedding you hosted this year. Our day was truly perfect and the memories will last a lifetime, for us and our guests. Thank you, we look forward to returning for our anniversary and many times in the years ahead.
