"Thank you so much for everything you did to make our day perfect! We had such an amazing time! The staff at Ettington Chase were fantastic and did an amazing job at looking after us on the Friday!"
Mr & Mrs. Diston


"The rest of the wedding was lovely thank you, it all seems like a distant memory now but I'm trying desperately to remember and cherish as much as I can from the day. We must thank you for all of your help on the day and especially Imran who was amazing and although we were running late because of the mishaps (through no fault of our own), he reassured us and made sure that everything else ran smoothly. I can't forget about what happened before the wedding as I still get emotional about it but the rest of the day was absolutely perfect and we thank all of the staff who helped to make it an unforgettable day.

The Eliot suite was fantastic though I wished we had more time to fully appreciate it's facilities! Everyone LOVED the food so please pass on our gratitude to the chef and the team and please also pass on our thanks to the waiting staff who were so patient and helpful."
Mr & Mrs Jones


"The wedding went perfectly. We had such an amazing day (even though it went by in such a blur). We can’t thank you enough for your help and support throughout the process. We would also like to extend our thanks to Imran too. He was amazing and made sure that everything went without a hitch on the day and nothing was too much trouble. He made sure that all the t's were crossed and i's were dotted without pestering us...fantastic, can't thank him enough!!!’

I wanted to say a huge thank you to you for everything you did to help make our day as special as it was.

We chose Ettington Chase, not because of the hotel, although it is a beautiful place but because of you & Natalie. You made us feel like our day was as special to you as it was to us. A number of places we went to look at just didn't have the same sincerity about them."
Mr & Mrs. Scott


"Firstly we would both like to thank you for all your help on our special day. We truly felt you went over and above what was expected of you within your role to help us forefill our wedding dream. All of our guests have complimented the venue, food, service and most of all how exceptional the staff were especially you two!

You made everything very special for us and even though there was the slight set back (which again you really helped us with when you didn't have to) you still managed to hold our day together and provide ourselves and our guests with a truly wonderful day and evening.

We cannot thank you enough for everything you done and in my eyes you both deserve a medal for dealing with our very manic wedding day!!!

I would highly recommend yourselves and Ettington Chase to anybody looking at getting married as you made the whole experience so much easier, stress free and enjoyable for everyone involved.

We both sincerely look forward to returning next year for our first anniversary meal and wish you both all the best."
Sarah and Dean


"Thank you for all the hard work and effort that you put into making our wedding day so amazing. We don't think that the day could have gone any better and all of the staff including yourself could not have been more helpful,  nothing was too much trouble and any little problems or issues that we had were dealt with straightaway. All of of our friends and relatives commented on what a beautiful location it was and that it was one of the best weddings they had been to. Thank you once again for all of your effort and I shall certainly recommend you to anyone looking for the perfect wedding venue."
Martin & Kylie


"Choosing the right venue for a wedding reception is a massive decision. We felt so pleased that we had chosen Ettington Chase. Everything was right - a lovely environment, friendly staff. The food was fantastic. We were delighted with the menu we chose - please pass on our thanks to the chef who cooked the lamb and everything to perfection. Oliver was really helpful and looked after us very well. I was very grateful for all your help and advice throughout last year, and the confidence you gave me that everything would be fine."
Kate and Simon
