  • Reviews From Weddings at Pennard House

    Oh my goodness, where do we start!? Firstly, thank you SO much for making this whole journey so incredibly easy, enjoyable and memorable!
    As a team, you were all just so warm, friendly and epic and we are just so lucky to have chosen Pennard House as our wedding venue! Ellie is an absolute asset to the team! I honestly don’t know what we would have done without her calm and welcoming manner! Every morning Sue (breakfast) was just brilliant! Again, dealing with all requests in the most hospitable and lovely way!
    We had such a blast all weekend and the whole team at Pennard helped us to achieve the most incredible party that will live in our memories, and hearts, forever! We will most definitely pop in for a cuppa the next time we come down! We will never be able to thank you all enough!
    We are just so pleased and count ourselves very lucky to have got married at Pennard House. It was hands down the best weekend of our lives!

    Thank you so so much for all of your help on our Wedding Day! During the lead up to the wedding I was worried that we would have lots of little things to remember on the day, but it was so lovely knowing that you were looking after everything for us! We both felt so calm & relaxed all day, which definitely helped us to enjoy it so much more. It really was such a perfect day & we really wish we could do it all over again! Once again, many thanks to you, Harry & the rest of the team!

    Thank you so much for all your help leading up to L & S wedding last week and for everything you did on the day for all of us. I had so many lovely comments about Pennard House and certainly those of us behind the scenes appreciated the extra bits you did to help us out. L & S has a fantastic day to remember forever and for that I can't thank you enough

    Our wedding at Pennard House was one of the best days of our lives and made so much more perfect by the team and family. You honestly have thought of every little thing you can imagine and couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming to our guests. A beautiful venue and fantastic day had by all with many of the guests asking if we can do it all over again!

    Alex and Charlotte, May 2018

    We just wanted to thank you for everything you did for our wedding on Thursday 10th August. It was a truly magical day and one that we will never forget. Thank you so much for letting us invade your home as if it was our own and for putting up with the chaos our families cause!
    We had numerous complements both during and after the wedding about how beautiful the coach house and grounds were and how convenient it was being able to walk from the church to the reception on the terrace. You all went above and beyond to ensure that Dave and I had a simply perfect day and we really cannot thank you enough. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Pennard House to any couple looking for the perfect wedding venue and would do it all again in a heart beat if we could.

    La you were on it and I honestly didn't worry about a thing because we trusted you 100% on the day, I think that is a very special gift to have so thank you!!!! You were amazing! Georgina thank you for all your help leading up to the big day, you guys opened up your house to our family for a few days and made it so special which was wonderful.

    Thank you so so much for allowing us to use your house as our wedding venue over the weekend. We just had the best weekend of our lives and so many of our guests commented on what a beautiful venue it is. We feel so privileged to have been able to use it as we did.

    John and Helen, August 2017

    We can't emphasise enough how happy we were with the service you and your team provided both on the day and in the build up. The tailored advice, support and Charlie's outstanding diligence on the day went a huge way towards making our wedding day a true success - so, thank you.
    We would genuinely recommend both the venue and your team to anyone.

    Hana and Joe, May 2017

    We had a truly wonderful wedding at Pennard House. It's an incredibly stunning location which has so much to offer. The bridal room was incredible, the gardens are beautiful (not to mention huge!) and the coach house was just simply stunning. Little decoration was needed on the day as the whole place already has such a beautiful, vintage appeal to it. We had so many of our guests on the day and afterwards complimenting us on the location. We would also like to compliment the service we received from Pennard House. Both the Dearden family and all staff are exceptionally kind and very genuine, down to earth people. They each played a part in helping us to create the perfect day and ensured everything ran smoothly and exceeded our expectations when the day finally arrived. Even before we booked, Harry, Georgina and Komala were always quick to respond to any communication, encouraged us to go ahead with our crazy ideas, and made it easy for us to get everything prepared and organised. The day couldn't have gone any better and we would like to thank everyone at Pennard House for being so helpful, kind and accommodating.

    Becky and Matt, April 2017

    I would just like to say a huge thank you to yourself and your family and caterers for providing such a fantastic day. You were all so kind and generous with your time and the day was planned down to the last detail. The food was fantastic and the accommodation was just amazing. Thank you for making Clare and Nathan's day unforgettable..

Pennard House was just perfect, our guests couldn’t believe we had found such a setting! And the weather made it all the better. Thanks ever so much for being so relax and helpful throughout, and letting us make the coach house ours for the day. It really came together better then we could imagine!"

    Amy, June 2015

    "We had a fantastic day, and I want to thank both Harry and yourself for all the support you gave us in the lead up to the wedding and for the smooth running of the actual day. Our guests were absolutely stunned with Pennard House and the Coach House as a wedding venue. The celebrations were so much fun and all our guests had an amazing time, there was so much fun and laughter. For both Tim and I, the day was better than we could ever have imagined and we have such fabulous memories to treasure."

    Freya and Andy Wagstaff

    "I would like to let you know that your welcome, the surroundings and your lovely staff make Pennard House a very special place. We appreciate the effort and calm it takes to create this and wish you the very best in the future. Caroline’s food was delicious – simple, tasty and beautifully presented in a smooth operation. Thank you"

    Isobel, guest at wedding, September 2013

    "We can't thank you, Georgina, Martin and Suzie enough really. When scoping out possible venues we were looking at all of the practical, mostly physical things…the venue architecture, its location, accommodation, etc. Pennard House obviously rated highly in all of these. But what we didn't bargain for was your fantastic hospitality, personal touch, your support and calming influence. So, thanks again."
