Our wedding at Hestercombe was just amazing! It is such a beautiful setting. As soon as I saw the Orangery I knew I wanted to get married there. The team organised everything perfectly and the whole day went so smoothly.

We really had the most beautiful time and we are grateful for your support throughout the whole process. A thank you too to the hospitality team who were fantastic on the day – everything was seamless.

Thanks for your positive, can­do attitude and for being attentive and as invested in the success of the day as we were.

Thank you so much for making our day so special and run so smoothly. We can’t stop talking about it, it was such a memorable day.

As soon as we visited Hestercombe Gardens on a chilly January day we knew that it was where we wanted to get married. After that, with Julie’s help – it was simple. On the day I didn’t have to worry about a thing (except my lippy staying in place). The teams worked in the background and how on earth they managed to work around us with no one noticing, I’ll never know. The day its self was faultless, the canapes and food were lovely and the atmosphere was relaxed. Whatever it is Hestercombe are doing, please, keep doing it!

Just a quick note to say we cannot thank you enough. Our day was just perfect. Richard, Jo and all the waiting staff were just brilliant, every time a course came out they all had amazing smiles.
