The wedding went perfectly !
The wedding went perfectly and it was largely down to the helpfulness of your staff and the team. Please can you extend our gratitude to the whole team for all their hard work and help. I realise now that I may have overcomplicated all of the arrangements by over organising every part of the children's activities and the like, so your team coped with my pedantic organisation really well! Everything went so well.We cant believe how lucky we were with the weather too!

A huge thanks!
A huge thanks to the whole team at Hever Castle for making our wedding day so special (and stress free!). As you know, we only booked the wedding at the end of May, so were initially a little worried that we had not allowed enough time. But the first class planning and services at Hever made our worries redundant. We are over the moon with how the day went, the service of the team on the day was excellent. Many of our guests commented on how they were served the food and drinks and the general calm atmosphere. Not forgetting the quality of the food and drinks also! Both of us enjoyed every aspect of the day and wouldn't hesitate recommending the venue and facilities to others. We are already thinking about staying with you for our 1 year anniversary :)

A Fairy Tale Wedding
Dear Ellie

We had a very special time at Hever last weekend. It takes a few days to reflect on what a successful and happy time we had and we are already receiving many messages and letters of thanks. The accommodation for our groom's party in the Anne Boleyn Wing was of a very high standard and all these arrangements worked extremely well. It was great that we were able to be there for both the Friday and Saturday nights.

The wedding day in the Italian Garden, the Loggia, the terrace and the Guthrie Pavilion all combined to give Nick and Tess a fairy tale wedding. Throughout our stay in the Anne Boleyn Wing and throughout all the arrangements on the day itself, what especially impressed us and our guests was the friendliness and efficiency of everybody at Hever. This extended to everybody we met including receptionists, gardeners, waiting staff and those doing all the coordination. What came over very clearly is the pride which your entire team take in Hever and justifiably so. It is so important to our family that you all gave us such a wonderful time and we are very appreciative.

Magical Wedding In the Most Magical Venue
We were blessed with beautiful weather, but everything about our wedding at Hever from the attention when we arrived, to the help throughout the day, the amazing Loggia with its fantastic setting and views to the glorious banquet in the Boleyn Dining Room were beyond our wildest dreams. The suppliers particularly Kenny Hickey Photography who has to be the best wedding photographer in the UK and Karen Woolven flowers and Spencer Wood that provided some extra magic for the day and Dante's tunes on the lute just made the day and memories even better. Team Hever under Kate's supervision are sheer perfection

Fabulous!
From our first correspondence with Hever staff and our first meetings with the charming, highly professional and delightful Sarah and Ria, we were continuously impressed by the level of attention to every aspect of our wedding. We had tears of joy, huge smiles and so much laughter from our guests on our wedding day; they all fell in love with the stunning venue, their rooms, the food.......simply everything. Here is a virtual standing ovation to the whole team for helping to make our day simply fabulous!

We got married at Hever Castle in May 2017. Not only is this an incredible venue, everything about the organisation and co-ordination was beyond perfection! Hever Castle were accommodating to our requests, the catering was incredible (and both of us working in the Corporate industry attend many functions and we were blown away by the quality of the catering!). They simply went above and beyond and our day was perfection with no hiccups whatsoever! Guests were simply amazed. THANK YOU, Sam & Chris 08.05.17 xx
