Wedding stories

September 2019

Had an amazing wedding day at Selsdon Estate on 1 September. The venue is beautiful and we truly could not have asked for more from the wonderful staff and wedding coordinator (Hollie).
The ceremony was held out in the secret garden. It was a perfect day and the setting was idiilic. We followed this up with the most amazing scenery for photographs. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Megan oversaw all the setting up and it was done to perfection. The room was beautifully laid out with all our favours and seating arrangements exactly as we wanted. The waiting team were brilliant led by Darris. Food was brought out quickly and it was piping hot and delicious. The evening turn around was quick and we had a great party. The barman (Daan) was really efficient and kept the drinks flowing all night and we danced the evening away with our friends and family and the most beautiful bride and groom.
We would highly recommend De Vere Selsdon Estate as a wedding venue. The most amazing weekend and wedding.

We booked our daughters wedding reception here after visiting during a wedding fayre open day. Following a couple of hiccups, Hollie, the wedding coordinator, was extremely attentive and informative.  She clarified the order of events for the day and her professionalism and attention to detail ensured that we felt confident that everything was taken care of and would run smoothly.

Hugo and James were fantastic and almost 'invisible' as they too ensured that the day was running smoothly and that all of our guests had they meals etc.  The Toastmaster Glen was absolutely fantastic!  He was witty and very organised in getting people into the room and seated and generally putting us all at ease.

The food was delicious and all of the guests commented on how elegant everything was and how attentive and polite all your staff were.  Sioban and Nate had a fantastic wedding day and this was largely due to the way the reception was run and organised. We look forward to visiting De Vere Selsdon Estate again.

We had a fantastic wedding day. We were very impressed with how smoothly the day went, everything was very well organised and we didn’t need to worry about anything, just as you predicted. We were particularly impressed with Peter Tautz and Tirion, but everyone did a fantastic job. Thank you for everything you did to make our day so special.

From our point of view, the ceremony went without a hitch, and all your staff were amazing. The drinks reception was well received, and the main reception went really well, with everyone sayining how great the food and the staff were. The evening reception went well too, we were so busy that we didn't get an opportunity to try any of the food, but understand it was just as good as the main reception. And lastly all the staff in general outside of our wedding were really welcoming. It was a really important day for us as I'm sure you'll understand and to have it go so well as a result of everything you guys did meant so much to us. So thank you for all your hard work. It meant we both had the best day ever.

We have had a wonderful day and a great time at the hotel. Our wedding could not have gone any better - that was mainly due to your level of professionalism, patience and great insight to our needs. Our guests were highly impressed with the standard of the hotel and the management of the day's event. Your choice of DJ and Toastmaster was perfect, and the catering team was also great, the food being simply amazing, and above all the decor was beautiful. We have had an amazing time and would not hesitate to recommend you.

We had our wedding at De Vere Selsdon Estate and I have to say it was perfect! We couldn't of done it without the help and support of the events managers Becky and Paula, they were brilliant. The hotel itself was stunning and a gorgeous place to get married, we had a lot of family and friends that stayed at the hotel as well as us and all said they loved it, lovely rooms and brilliant staff and will definitely be coming back to stay! The wedding and our reception room were also perfect we couldn't believe it when we walking in how beautifully it was done. Every guest thought so too and was quick to say how much they loved the wedding and the wedding breakfast. De Vere Selsdon Estate will always be a special place for us now as they gave us a day we will never forget.

We had our wedding reception here and had an amazing day. Everything ran smoothly due to our coordinator being on hand at the beginning and throughout the day and the well organised staff in the evening. The food was amazing for both the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet and the terrace room was set beautifully, some of our guests even said it's one of the best weddings they've been too. The whole building is stunning, everyone is really helpful and friendly and we would highly recommend for a wedding.

We could not have asked for a better day, from the word 'go' the staff were professional, helpful, and accommodating, we could not fault them. The wedding reception was stunningly beautiful and went without any problems. The property itself is old but that is part of its charm, its atmosphere is regal as far as we are concerned, with its beautifully designed and elaborate ceilings, decor and well kept grounds. It was a fantastic experience and a memorable day for all, we will never forget the day and will always have a special place in our hearts for Selsdon Estate.
