A Wonderful Wedding
Wonderful Wedding Location
We would highly recommend Marlfield House as a venue to anybody looking for first-class personal service. Thank you again to Dawn and all the staff, and Margaret who was always in the background with a watchful eye. We will definitely revisit.
We had a fantastic day
Dawn our designated wedding planner put us to ease immediately, taking us through every last detail of the day, and was always on hand with helpful advice / templates and great contacts for anything wedding related. She turned what could have ben a very stressful situation into a fun and enjoyable experience. Dawn is an absolute super star and we could not have asked for a better, more bubbly, genuinely caring and professional wedding coordinator. Jeff the head chef played an absolute blinder and designed a really special and delicious wedding feast that we and our guests absolutely loved. The staff were so welcoming and attentive and always on hand to accommodate whatever requests went their way. The Bowe family opened their beautiful house to us and did not disappoint. Margaret was a very warm and generous host, extending her time to help us with some of the finer details of the day and ensuring all our needs were being looked after. Even Lumi the peacock at Marlfield did his best to welcome guests and put on a very colourful display.
I just wanted to thank you for our beautiful day
Thanks again for everything
Thank you to you in particular as every detail was covered and we really felt like you had gone out of your way to help make our day the best it could be (your advice around timings were invaluable!!!). You dealt with our indecisiveness brilliantly and helped steer us in what was definitely the right route.
