I would like to say a big thankyou to Helen our wedding planner for making our dreams come true, Annabelle who made the whole day run smoothly and also Robert Who helped us carry all of our flower table centre pieces in to the marquee in the pouring rain the day before our wedding. Helen was perfect. Without her our day/ dream wedding would never have materialised. We can’t thank her enough she’s been so helpful and made the whole process so easy and enjoyable. Annabelle was fabulous, she made the day run smoothly and she was so enthusiastic and put us both at ease, her infectious personality made us feel confident and safe. All members of staff we came into contact with were polite, accommodating and helpful. When we had our initial meeting with Helen way back in Sept 2016 we never thought the wedding we wanted would be possible within our budget. We were ecstatic when we received our quote as everything we had hoped for had been included in the quote and we had to pinch ourselves. The buffet food we had for our wedding was delicious, everyone commented on how amazing the pork pie and piccalilli was. The meal we had in the restaurant the night before our wedding was also beautiful and the bedrooms were lovely, spacious/ Clean/ Comfortable and Homely. The Hotel is Pristine. We will definitely be recommending Hogarth's to friends and family in the future and it will always hold fond memories in our hearts, we couldn’t have asked for anything better!!!!

It was honestly the best day of our lives and exceeded all expectations. Many of our guests have said it’s the best wedding they have ever been to and that is down to the Hogarth’s team. Every detail was delivered to perfection. Helen was phenomenal and made us feel really special and valued throughout the whole planning process. Helen was one of the main reasons we chose Hogarth’s as she brought the whole experience to life for us. She was responsive, informative, professional, creative and completely put us at ease. She was the perfect wedding coordinator and I can’t praise her enough. Helen is a real credit to Hogarth’s and we love her! Charlotte was also absolutely brilliant on the day and with helping us set up the evening before. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone commented on how helpful she was. The day was run to perfection and we were really happy with everything she did for us – including emptying the post-box and setting the cards and balloons up in the room. The customer service received by the wedding team was superb throughout the day and night. The food was unreal! The beef was to die for and our guests are still talking about how much they loved the food and it’s the first time they have eaten everything at a wedding. The fish and chips were also delicious. I should’ve had seconds! The December room was stunning and we loved the bath, the hotel was very clean and looked stunning on the day. The whole event was worth every penny – the winter wonderland package is fantastic and the wedding team were fabulous, especially with the extra value they gave us – we really appreciated everything you did for us.
