Weddings

Dear Sarah, Alistair and Richard

 We wanted to thank you for ensuring that Torie and Cos's wedding day was just perfect - which it was in every respect (including the weather!).  Dartmouth House looked absolutely glorious - it was the perfect setting for our daughter's wedding and reflected all the careful planning and follow-through you gave us.

 The House lends itself to just the sort of atmosphere we wanted to achieve - beautiful and sophisticated yet relaxed and informal in that we could be outside for the reception in the Courtyard, which looked very elegant and lovely.

 Everything was meticulously executed by your excellent staff and we would be grateful if you would tell them all how much we appreciated their care, attention and humour throughout the day.

 Thank you again - it was easy and pleasurable to work with you and you made the Bride and Groom's most important day that much more special. 

 With kind regards

 Lisa and Anthony

 Hi Richard

I also just wanted to take the chance to say thank you so much for all your help. It was an amazing day for us - in the planning I felt totally comfortable that you and your team would run the day smoothly, and it was perfect. Everyone remarked on the gorgeous venue, and also the quality of the food and the seamless way the day flowed. It really made a difference, and I felt I was able to totally relax and enjoy the day.

I've attached a lovely photo of you with us - I think it sums up your lovely friendly style!

Dear Alistair

Many thanks again for all your effort in making sure my daughters wedding was resounding success which it clearly was. The quality of the food was delicious and Richard ( chef) certainly produced a memorable meal which was  remarked upon and enjoyed by all. Please pass on my grateful thanks to him. The attentive  service and  hospitality extended by your team also added to the excellence of the occasion and please also thank them on my behalf.

I am very grateful to your personally for ensuring all of the arrangements were delivered so  seamlessly,  ensuring my daughter, son-in–law and all of the guests had a wedding day to remember. We have started to receive many letters and cards of thanks from the guests and all of them are very complimentary about Dartmouth House and the overall experience.

 Thank you again.

 Kind Regards

Andrew

Hi Richard,

 I would just like to say a huge thank you to you and your team for making our big day on Saturday such a special one.  Everything went well and Ari and I and all of our guests had an amazing time. 
 
Thank you to you for being so lovely, calm, organised, and for making sure it looked fabulous, (even better even than I could have hoped!). Also, for ensuring the whole event ran smoothly. Thank you also to Alistair who was lovely and couldn't do enough for us. 
 
Many thanks again! Will recommend you to everyone!

Richard,

Please find the below testimonial for our wedding on October 1st:

We had our wedding at Dartmouth House in October and we do not believe it could have gone any better. We strongly recommend Dartmouth House to any bride and groom looking for a perfect venue.

Before the wedding we were able to specify exactly what we wanted and how we wanted it done from the extensive menu choices offered. We also received great help in planning the day and making the most out of the venue.

The tasting session we had before the wedding ensured that everything from canapes to dessert was checked by us and our feedback was noted.

On the day itself the staff at Dartmouth House were excellent from beginning to end. Alistair especially helped make the day run smoothly responding to anything ourselves or our guests needed. The waiting staff were totally professional and served 80 of us very smoothly.

The food on the day was delicious with steaks done to perfection and according to the various requirements of our guests. All three courses were great and many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding meal they had tasted.

Lastly, the venue itself is so beautiful that you almost can't help having a good time there. The grand staircase, the Churchill Room where our ceremony was held and the courtyard where we had our meal (on a beautiful sunny day) really combined to make the day unforgettable.

Thank you to everyone at Dartmouth House especially Alistair, Richard, Maria and Lauren.

 Dear Maria,

Thank you for making our wedding absolutely wonderful. The marquee worked really well and we were so lucky with the weather being so warm and sunny. Richard was absolutely right when he said it wasn't going to rain. The piano recital was fabulous to. Cd to follow.

Thank you,

Nicky

 Dear Richard, Alastair, Jan and Lauren

Both Emma and I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work in helping to make our special day so memorable. It really was the happiest day of our lives together so far and the house looked breathtaking. Everybody mentioned how beautiful the house and wedding was and we know that was down to a lot of hard work from you and your colleagues.

Alastair, thank you for all your hard work in collecting and making sure people wrote in our 'guest book'. We are looking forward to reading all the messages in 5 years time while enjoying the wine and will know that it's down to your tireless efforts in getting everybody to write something to us.

Thank you for our card as well. A very kind gesture.

Thank you Jan for being at Dartmouth House this morning to meet us. We managed to collect everything set aside for us today.

With thanks,

Nat and Emma x

 Dear Richard and Alistair

My wife, Alicja, and I would like to thank you for helping to make our wedding such a success at Dartmouth House on 25 June. You organised it most efficiently; the staff worked hard; and we were most impressed with the way the day went. We have had many compliments from our guests about the quality of the food, hospitality and service. The Long Drawing Room looked amazing.

It is of course a fabulous venue and the service from you and your team make it extra special.

Alistair, I am particularly grateful to you for escorting my mother, so that she could avoid the stairs.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Dartmouth House.

With best wishes

Tim and Alicja


Dear Richard,

 Hi,

Thank you for your email, and the final invoice.

I would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff for their hard work on this event, the evening was a huge success and enjoyed by all.

The marquee is a great idea, and looks really pretty at night – it would be good to have this at the venue every summer!

I will look forward to working with you in the future.

Hi Maria

.... they LOVED it. I wasn't able to be there myself sadly (was on vacation), but they loved the venue, said the food was delicious, service impeccable and the surroundings perfect. I hear that the weather was nice too - hadn't realised you had a hotline into Him upstairs as well! Thanks you for all your help and enthusiasm. Dartmouth House has become a favourite. I recommended DH very strongly.....

Kind regards,

Angela

Dear Richard

I wanted to thank you for your help in making the event run smoothly. The party was a great success and luckily the rain held off! Please could you also pass my thanks on to Alastair who was absolutely fantastic and so helpful. He also put up with my requests with great patience! Everyone atDartmouth Housewas very friendly and helpful and this very much contributed to the success of the evening.

Thank you again

Kind regards

Selina


Dear Richard,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all your wonderful staff for being so hospitable and professional as ever.

The setup in the small drawing room worked well and we are happy that it was a quieter space for guests to come and speak to the panellists. I believe Blackwell’s were also delighted to have the opportunity to sell their books and the spot we agreed on seemed to work just perfectly so thanks for your advice and for being so accommodating about the last minute changes.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend,

Paula

Hi Maria

Our client could not speak highly enough of the service – I’m not sure who looked after them but apparently the whole last minute vegan situation was handled really brilliantly. So a big thank you to the Chef and the host - both excellent.

Many thanks and no doubt we’ll be back soon.

Best regards

Frankie
