Thank you!
Hi Grace, both Judi and I would like to thank both yourself, Rob and all the staff at the Yew Lodge for making our wedding day extra special.
The attention to detail and the hard work you guys put in was second to none. The hotel, disco, food etc and your help was all amazing.
A special thank you to Rob who worked tirelessly all day to ensure the day went smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble and he was the gel that made everything run like clockwork.
All our guests commented on the high standards in the hotel, food, cleanliness, rooms and the service our guests received was great.
Please pass this on to the Management team at the Yew Lodge as we can't fault our wedding day.
You're a great team. Keep up the good work

Magical Wedding Day
We had the most perfect magical day, it was better than we ever imagined. Grace was brilliant as wedding coordinator and always made us feel that we were always her priority. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Mark was a fantastic master of ceremony and made the day go without a hitch, any requests we made were dealt with straight away with no fuss. Both are fabulous personalities and very easy to get along with. The other staff were equally hardworking, helpful and polite. The food was lovely, we had no complaints from our guests, all dietary requirements were well catered for. The only recommendation would be to label the buffet food as some of our vegetarian guests didn’t know what they could eat. The rooms were dressed and decorated to our requirements and looked beautiful.
We also used the in house DJ and hired their photo booth which everyone loved. The flowers provided by the hotel were absolutely stunning and I even preferred them to my own bouquet! We had the most amazing wedding and we can not recommend Yew Lodge as a wedding venue enough, the hotel will always be etched in our hearts forever. Thank you for helping create such beautiful memories.

Yew Lodge Hotel
It's difficult to know where to start! The staff at Yew Lodge could not have worked harder to make our day so amazing. Not only was the organisation of the day perfect, but the staff also made us feel so comfortable and welcome, which extended to all our guests. Special thanks goes to Grace and Rob, who checked in with us all the time to make sure we were happy and if we needed anything. They communicated with us brilliantly leading up to the wedding to ensure they knew exactly what we wanted. Nothing was to much trouble, including a completely different and untraditional table plan i requested. The food was absolutely excellent, and it was something we were worried about having known that sit down wedding meals sometimes are lacking due to having to cater for so many people. This was absolutely not the case. My husband and I agreed it was the best sticky toffee pudding we had ever had! The package we received from yew lodge was fantastic value and it took all the stress out of planning. I had absolutely nothing to critique about how they ran the day, and I am not always easy to please. I cannot stress enough how brilliant the team are. Every single one of our guests commented on what a brilliant time they had had, and how beautiful everything had been. I can only pass on our massive thanks to everyone that worked hard to make sure we had a day to remember for all the right reasons.

Unbelievable, exceeded expectations and more!
We're very pleased to have chosen the Yew Lodge hotel as our venue. We'd been engaged for years but decided to book our wedding with fairly little notice due to family illness, so the package on offer was perfect as it saved me a lot of stress booking and dealing with all the different vendors I'd have had to individually book elsewhere. The hotel itself is smart and well presented, and our guests were impressed!

The food on our big day was unbelievable, exceeded expectations and more! All the staff worked so hard to deliver the perfect day. The entire process was smooth and we knew what was happening at each part of the day. Thank you all so much!

I don't know where to begin because everything was just outstanding. Perfect from start to finish, from the first wedding fayre we attended, every member of staff was so welcoming and polite, then to our perfect wedding day.
The food was delicious, everything was so well organised, Grace, Rob and the whole team made sure everything went without a hitch.
I had arranged a surprise car convoy for my hubby, we had surprise singing waiters and nothing was too much trouble, grace and rob helped to keep everything top secret.
We had an amazing day and every single one of our guests commented on how amazing the day was, the wedding breakfast and evening buffet was gorgeous.
The Ash and Mulberry suites looked absolutely stunning. I couldn't have wished for a more perfect day. I wish we could do it all over again.
Thankyou to the whole team at Yew Lodge.

Best Day of Our Lives!
Our wedding was the best day of our lives!! (Massively helped by the weather)
Yew lodge hotel was the perfect setting for us! Simple but elegant. The team were fantastic! We requested a rather unusual set up for a wedding but these guys made it happen! We had the flexibility to create our perfect wedding and had nothing but support and helpful advice from grace! Mark was great on the day. Both of them work hard to ensure every couple gets their dream day! We felt so comfortable and happy with all the service we received!
The event rooms are beautiful, food was excellent, prices are very reasonable and the team create a wonderful day to be had by both newlyweds and guests!
I would recommend the venue and team to anyone whether your after a traditional set up or something a bit different. They are skilled in their area and will go above and beyond to ensure you have the best day!
Thank you to mark and the team for the running of the day but particularly thank you to grace for all her help with the planning, correspondence and making our perfect day possible!

Could not have been any better...
We held our wedding at Yew Lodge and it could not have been any better. The booking/planning was a breeze - Grace kept in contact and we had numerous meetings in the run up to go through numbers, food, details. The day before our wedding we had a final meeting with Grace and our MC Rob (who is fantastic!) to go through every last little detail, we dropped off our centre pieces, table plan etc and they appeared beautifully arranged on our wedding day. The day ran smoothly without a hitch - Rob was absolutely brilliant all day and dealt with every request quickly and efficiently - He couldn’t do enough for us. We found all of the hotel staff to be great, all friendly and polite. Our ceremony room, the wedding breakfast room and also the room once changed around for the evening reception looked fantastic. The food was great - Hot and tasty. We stayed overnight with a lot of our guests and the great service followed the next day with a lovely breakfast before we left. We had the absolute best day and we wouldn’t have wanted it anywhere else. Thank you Yew Lodge for making sure our day was perfect.

Second to none!
We just wanted to say a massive, massive thank you to you all for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. We were so well looked after, nothing was too much trouble, you’re all so friendly and attentive! We were nervous wrecks but you were all there to keep us calm and help guide us through and we couldn’t be more grateful.

Grace, you’ve been outstanding throughout this whole process, you couldn’t have done any more for us. Every email answered, every worry or question solved quicker than we could even finish asking, you are excellent at your job and the hotel is very lucky to have you! I think I’d (Jo) have fallen to pieces without your guidance but I guess that’s why they pay you the big money haha! Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us, all future brides and grooms are in good hands!

Rob, you and your team were amazing. The whole day would not have been possible without you all. From the evening before, nothing was too much trouble for any of you. Rob helped put us at ease on a very nervous and stressful day and for that we’re so appreciative! We didn’t have to worry about a thing which took a massive weight off our shoulders, the rooms looked absolutely incredible, they were perfect in every way. Thank you so much, you’re a credit to the hotel!

I’ve attached a couple of photos of the day just in case you wanted a nosey, now we’ve just got the wait for the professional ones!

Thank you again, we will get round to writing a 5* review on social media/trip advisor but we just wanted to send a personal email first as you were all absolutely fabulous.

We hope to see you soon
