Your wedding day should be the most special day of your lives and there is so much to do and so much that can go wrong.
But when we say that absolutely everything went well and exactly to plan it would not be an exaggeration.
The communication throughout the process to the implementation on the actual day and breakfast the next day was spot on and huge credit must go to Stephanie, Faye and Nicola (our Wedding Day Co-Ordinator). Nicola, brought everything together and her 18 years of experience shone through with nothing phasing her – she made the bride feel like a princess and what bride could ask for more than that! When Nicola took the Bride to our gorgeous Tulip Wedding Suite, it brought tears of joy to the Brides eyes. Special mention to Debbie (serving) and Jerome on music duty at the end of the night – they were so polite and helpful, as were all of the staff.
Nothing was too much trouble and the timetable we had in place went smoothly and to the letter. We has some instructions for the Team in place and they ticked them all off competently and with the minimum of fuss and we had some very particular requests from some of our guests.
Ultimately, the Hever Castle backroom and implementation team made our day perfect and we have had so many of our guests comment and say what a fantastic time they had - and could they do it again!
It was an honour and a privilege to be able to host our wedding at such a spectacular and historic site, the tour of Hever Castle the following morning really was the icing on the cake with many of the guests commenting that is was the best two day wedding event they had ever experienced.
I would highly recommend having your wedding at Hever Castle as it is such a magical and beautiful place, but when you have such a superb team mobilised behind you then it can make the difference between good and great – and we had a great wedding.

Just been married at Hever on 17.10.2019! I want to thank all my lovely vendors for capturing the day. I also want to thank the lovely staff at Hever! Emily and Faye you both were a pleasure to work with and I can't thank you enough for keeping things on track and helping me plan aperfect day! I'm so glad I took your suggestions, you are experts at what works best!
Paul thank you for keeping us on track with timing the day of and for ensuring all guests were happy with their food and had everything they needed! Andy thank you for keeping guests satiated with drinks! I cant believe you were out as late as us and up with breakfast for us in the Anne Boleyn Wing!
Steve! Oh my goodness Steve, your energy was so calming as you walked us ladies through the grounds to where we needed to go. Thank you for holding my flowers! Your information about the cygnets and passion for the castle captivated me. Thanks for sending John and off as well, that leather jacket was smashing! Sarah, thank you for giving Steve a break and for making sure our timing walking down the aisle was perfect for avoiding the drizzle!
Darren and Jerome, thank you so much for all the behind the scenes support! The loggia looked beautiful and I can't believe how quickly you all had it cleared out!
Seriously, no wonder Hever won so many awards this year! You all have weddings down to a science without it feeling stiff or rushed. Also, no wonder these vendors are on the best venue's list! They are a dream to work with and they deliver the stuff of fantasy!

Sam and I wanted to extend a huge thanks and appreciation to all of you for making our wedding so magical, and for making the planning process so effortless and fun. Not a single part of the day 'went wrong' for us, (not even the weather!) which we can only put down to your professionalism, care and seamless execution of the day. Even finding a 'hever' heart and card in the letter box was just a few of the little touches that meant so much to us.
Every single one of our guests complimented us on the food, service and of course the beautiful setting...and then the fireworks! (Awesome). Many of our international guests, who hadn't been to the UK before were absolutely blown away. Thank you.
The wedding party all adored their rooms and were genuinely refusing to leave in the morning, so again, another resounding success with them. We will remember the day for the rest of lives and have vowed to book a stay on every big anniversary in future :)

It goes without saying, that your attention to detail and the service we received throughout our whole stay from ALL the staff was unparalleled, but it is to you that we owe are greatest thanks for pulling out all the initial stops to fit us in at such short notice, and constantly going over and above for us.
We will send you a formal 'Thank You' card, but wanted to email you straight away to acknowledge your immense efforts in the most memorable day of our lives.

We had the most fabulous time on our wonderful wedding day, smiles, laughter and tears of joy from our guests, who all remarked on the spectacular location. A special thanks to the entire team for ensuring everything went smoothly. Please pass on our gratitude to Paul (our manager on the day) Darren and Francis, they were a pleasure to be around and helped to make our day exceptional. It was all very personal with the wonderful back drop and ambience of the beautiful Hever Castle; such a wondrous place which added to the uniqueness of our experience so thank you again to you, Ria and the catering staff who showed personal pride in getting things right. We have only the highest praise for you and your colleagues, we were always met with smiles, warmth and professionalism. Once again, thank you for helping to make our wedding day a memorable occasion.

We had fallen in love with Hever on a previous visit and instantly knew that this was the place where we would say forever. Stunning vista, amazingly romantic and quite simply perfect. Their organisation and attention to detail was fantastic from start to finish (most especially on the day) - we didn't have to think about a thing. It truly was the best day of our lives. We would highly recommend Hever. Our morning ceremony under the loggia by the lake was everything we wished for and the stroll following the ceremony through the castle grounds is something dreams are made of. Thank you everyone at Hever!
Emma & Matthew
