TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR BRIDES, GROOMS & WEDDING GUESTS
Helen and Jon – 11 April 2015
I’m still on cloud nine! I really can’t thank you enough for making our only daughter’s Wedding Day so absolutely perfect! We have had nothing but praise and compliments from our guests and everyone has said the whole experience was superb.
I so enjoyed making a lot of the bits and pieces myself, and you worked so hard to display them to the best possible effect, and I especially thank you for letting me get the cake sorted out and stacked in advance.
The wedding breakfast was lovely, all the food was delicious and served hot to everyone at the same time, which I know can’t be easy. So many people have commented on all of those things, as well as the high standard of accommodation, particularly the comfortable beds!!
The timing of everything was excellent, and it all flowed so well. That takes some doing when you also have a crèche, a string quartet and later a band to organise.
Helen and Jon arrived safely in the Maldives and have sent a couple of pictures. It looks amazing! She has sent us a text thanking us for the best wedding ever and I’m sure she’ll be in touch when she has her photos.
Hannah and Christopher - 29 March 2015
Thank you for making our dreams come true and for everything you did to make out wedding day the most perfect day of our lives! Our wedding was so amazing, from the moment we booked the date up to the big day it has all been a breeze. Everyone commented not only on how beautiful the venue was but how well it all ran on the day. I have recommended you to some friends who are currently looking for a wedding venue and they will be making an appointment soon for a visit.
Thank you to all the amazing staff who made it all possible, especially Kathryn who has been a dream to work with making every detail of the day breathtaking. You are amazing and we are so blessed to have had you as our wedding planner.
Daniel and Zoe – 28 March 2015
Thank you so much for making our wedding day special and run so smoothly. All our guests commented on how amazing the venue is and how attentive the staff are. We would like to say a special thanks to Jill for keeping us calm and being there for us when we needed you. Once again thank you for making our day at Prested very special. We hope we get to visit you in years to come as Wedding guests!
Sue and Paul on the wedding of Daniel and Zoe – 28 March 2015
My husband and I wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself and your team for the wonderful day we had at Prested for Zoe and Daniels wedding on 28.03.2015. The day could not have been better and was mainly because of your professionalism and expertise in keeping the day flowing. The guests which stayed overnight all commented really positively on the venue, food, rooms and service provided and also the day guests all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Also please pass on our thank-yous to Jade and Emily (hope I have remembered names correctly) who tackled hair and make-up for myself, Zoe, other daughter Kirsty and Mother of Groom Deb
I would thoroughly recommend the ‘package’ provided by Prested.
Rebecca and Tom – 21 March 2015
I cannot put into words how wonderful everything was, all the attention to detail, you made the room look beautiful, the food service was incredible and all guests commented how it was so well organised. Everything was seamless! I told Tom how you looked after me in the morning and made sure I was fed and happy We would not change a thing about the entire day and could not be happier.
So many have since told us that it’s the best wedding and venue they’ve ever been to and that is largely thanks to you.
Amanda and Julian – 31 December 2014
Now we are back from our lovely spa break (mini moon) I wanted to thank you properly for our amazing wedding day on New Year’s Eve! Myself and my family had a lovely evening the night before the wedding (including our own private dining room), where we had a lovely meal and relaxed before the big day.
The ceremony room was perfect for our special day and we were greeted with a white frosty (but sunny morning) which was beautiful. The Orangery looked utterly amazing set out for the wedding breakfast. The food was fabulous, we had so many comments about the great quality, more than generous portions sizes and wonderful presentation.
Thanks to all the staff that gave up their new year’s eve and new year’s day to make our wedding one to remember forever. Even the cleaning team were really lovely. We have already recommended Prested to a couple we met on our spa weekend who are looking for a wedding venue.
Greg and Tina – 22 December 2014
Our wedding day on 22 December was fantastic and it was everything we had hoped it would be. This was mainly due to the hard work of you and your team but in particular your exceptional support throughout the day. The way in which you dealt with the failure of the florist was just typical of the calm and professional way in which you organised our day and a credit to your team. Many people commented about the lovely venue, the quality (and quantity!) of the food and the way in which you seamlessly guided us through the day.
We would not hesitate in recommending Prested Hall to anyone wanting to have memorable day. Thank you so much for all you have done for us and all the best for 2015
Alec and Jacquie – 1 November 2014
Jacquie and I would like to pass on our thanks to Kathryn and the team at Prested Hall for a fantastic wedding day, yesterday. Nothing was too much trouble for us and our guests, the staff were always attentive and friendly, and the service (including the food) was excellent throughout. The venue itself is just perfect for tying the knot, with plenty of room to spread out and the rooms are spacious and welcoming. We have been very happy with the service we have received from Prested Hall right from the beginning through to the morning after the big day and would recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding venue.
Karen and Jon – 24 October 2014
Nothing but fond memories from all of our dealings with Prested Hall! From our initial meeting with Kathryn back in April we knew we’d found the perfect location for our special day! And they did not disappoint! Our wedding on October 24th was perfect in every way! Working with Jill, our assigned event manager, was an absolute pleasure. I don’t know how she does it, but on the day, she made us feel like we were the only couple to ever marry at Prested – such great attention to detail and calming influence! Everything from the organisation, dealings with our suppliers, service from the staff – all spot on! The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and by all accounts, all of our guests had a great night’s sleep! The food was both plentiful and very tasty! Many thanks to all at Prested Hall for such a lovely day and great memories to cherish!
Peter and Eileen – 19 October 2014
Prested Hall was the perfect place for our wedding. From the moment we first met, to the moment we left The Hall after breakfast the day after was wonderful. The staff were so attentive to everybody’s needs. A very special thank you to our wedding planner Jill, who looked after my wife and I from start to finish. The hotel is a great setting – wonderful ceremony room, beautiful ballroom, and food to die for, fantastic bedrooms for all of the guests that stayed, and the grounds are stunning. Thank you Prested Hall for making our wedding truly the best day of our lives and a wedding our families will be talking about for years to come.
Donna – 9 October 2014
This hotel looks amazing when you drive up to it and you will not be disappointed with the inside…we stayed for 1 night for a family member’s wedding. We were given the attic room, it was lovely inside with a comfy bed, dressing table, tea, coffee, bottle of water, TV and not forgetting the huge bathroom which had a shower separate from the bath. The staff were great and friendly and the breakfast was lovely, there was something for everyone (and I’m a fussy eater) the grounds are amazing. I got to see most of the rooms and everyone of them was great. I really enjoyed my stay here and if I was in the area again I would stay here in a shot.
Rebecca and Joseph – 5 October 2014
We just want to pass on our thanks to Kathryn and the team at Prested Hall for making our wedding day on 5th October 2014 the best day of our lives. From the moment we walked into Prested Hall back in November 2013 we knew we wouldn’t find a better venue and we instantly fell in love with the Hotel and its stunning grounds. The service we received was outstanding and nothing we asked for was too much trouble. Having Kathryn as our events manager meant I, the stressed bride, could completely relax and enjoy the big day! Everything ran smoothly and all our guests commented on how amazing the venue, food and service was. Our guests that stayed over all commented how lovely and comfortable the rooms in both the hotel and the apartments were (especially the very yummy biscuits on the tea tray) and it was a lovely touch for us all to share breakfast the morning after. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for making our special day the most amazing and a day we will remember for the rest of our lives. Oh and a quick special mention to the 2 very friendly & efficient lads that ran the bar service in the evening… Sorry I don’t know your names but a big thanks from us!
Averline and Andrew – 19 September 2014
We had our wedding in this beautiful building. Everything went so well due to the great staff and wedding organiser Jill, she made our day stress free. We recommend Prested Hall to everyone thinking of staying or having their wedding there. Rooms were beautiful, the food exceptional and great value for money. All our guests loved every minute of the wedding and their stay.
Bella and Ryan – 7 September 2014
As soon as I looked round Prested Hall I knew this was where I wanted to get married. Kathryn was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to make sure our day ran smoothly. I couldn’t have wished for anyone else better to help plan our day. From start to finish everything went to plan and all the staff were great and helpful. The food was wonderful and had loads of compliments from the guests. The venue is beautiful and lovely surroundings.
Laura and Steven – 5 September 2014
We cannot thank you enough for helping to make our wedding day run so perfectly. We have had so many lovely compliments from our guests and they have all said what a wonderful time they had and what a brilliant venue Prested Hall is. We would recommend it to anyone!
Caroline and Lee – 29 August 2014
Myself and my husband Lee got married at Prested Hall on 29/8/14. Where do I start with how fantastic Prested Hall and all their staff have been in making our day so perfect and memorable. From the moment we visited Prested Hall when looking for a venue, we knew it was perfect. Kathryn our event manager was absolutely amazing, she ensured our day ran smoothly and that all our guests were looked after all day, she completely took all the stress away and allowed me to enjoy my day without worries. I have had nothing but compliments about her. The food was out of this world and everyone was well fed all day!! the rooms were just lovely, with the comfiest beds any of us have ever slept in!! the breakfast the next day was exactly what everyone needed after the night before and gave us a chance to say goodbye to all our guests. I could go on and on about how wonderful Prested Hall is, it gave me the wedding of my dreams and both Lee and I would not hesitate to recommend Prested Hall as a venue to anyone looking to create a perfect day. I wish I could do it all over again!!
Katherine and Oliver – 22 August 2014
Myself and my husband got married at Prested Hall on 22/08/2014 and having got back from honeymoon the first thing on my list is to write our review for Jill and her the rest of the team! I have to say we couldn’t recommend it highly enough. The planning stage was fantastic as it made sure everything was exactly as we wanted and no stress or surprises on the day, it also meant we had lots of chance in the run up to explore the beautiful venue and grounds and to get to know the team who are all lovely. On the day itself the venue was beautiful, everything set up just how we wanted, the food was excellent, all the staff were polite, friendly and exceptionally good at their jobs (including waiters and bar staff at what was a very busy bar all evening!). Everybody also commented on how lovely their rooms were and The Dingle was beautiful and we both said we wish we had more time to enjoy it so hopefully we will be back in the years to come ! I would say if you are thinking of having your wedding at Prested and you want somewhere with a friendly relaxed feeling then this is the place to go for!
Kris and Tracy – 17 August 2014
From the minute that we visited Prested Hall we knew we wanted to get married there. All the staff were fantastic, the food was great and the Wedding went without a hitch. Special thank you to Kathryn Everitt who was awesome!!! We would recommend Prested Hall to everyone!!!
Lauren and Scott – 15 August 2014
My husband and I married here 15th August 2014 and it was perfect. We chose this venue after visiting 8 others and viewing many more online. Kathryn was our wedding planner and she was incredible, even at the end of what must be a very long working day she was still so excited for us! Prested Hall was for us the full package – delicious food, beautiful rooms to stay the night in, professional and friendly staff, lovely grounds for photos. I chose this venue in particular as although we wanted an outdoor ceremony, we wanted to have a good back up option if the weather didn’t co-operate. At many venues we saw the indoor option had you walking past or through the tables set up for dinner but at Prested we had a dedicated room to use which made it feel much more special. I would wholeheartedly recommend this venue to anyone, friends and family have been telling us it was the most beautiful venue and set up they’ve been to.
Lindsey and Bryn – 14 August 2014
My Husband and I got married at Prested Hall on August 14th this year. What can I say other than this is one of the most amazing venues! So many people commented on how lovely Prested Hall was, how relaxed and charming the venue and staff were and how blooming gorgeous the food was! Huge portions and so tasty you will not be left disappointed at all. We had the bronze menu and let me tell you – it was lovely! Definitely a Gold service and Gold tasting. If you want a wedding venue which caters for your every need, stylish, romantic, affordable whilst maintaining a relaxed and homely environment then this is the place for you. Thanks again Prested for being the perfect venue. All the staff were fantastic. Whoever owns Prested should be so proud to have such an amazing team working for them.
Aimi and Nikita – 8 August 2014
I had my wedding at Prested Hall in August and the whole experience on the day and before was amazing. The staff were so fantastic and made my day so special. I would especially like to mention Kathryn, who was such a support to us before our wedding and on the day. The venue is absolutely beautiful and I loved the marquee. The grounds and the rooms are also stunning. The great thing about Prested is that we were able to have wedding guests stay at the hotel, and this was included in the package. All of my guests also commented on how great the food at the reception, and at breakfast was. I cannot rate Prested any more highly and I would recommend it to anyone as a wedding venue.
Darren and Hazel – 31 July 2014
Where do I start? Everything about the venue, food and rooms were perfect. From the very first time we saw the venue at a wedding fair they hosted we fell in love with Prested. Vicki our wedding coordinator was so helpful as were all the staff throughout the planning and organising of our day. When I arrived at Prested Hall on the morning of our wedding the venue was already decorated and Vicki had completely understood my theme and plans for the day, it was absolutely perfect. All of our guests complimented us on the venue and everyone said how good the meal was, as well as the buffet. All the rooms were clean and nicely decorated and the breakfast the next morning went down a treat. We really cannot thank Prested enough for helping us to have the wedding of our dreams the whole day ran so smoothly and my Husband and I would highly recommend this venue. Thanks again x
Janet Emerton – 27 July
Thank you so much for all that you and your colleagues at Prested did to make Jane and Keith’s wedding day such an amazing occasion. The day was just how we envisaged and a lot of that was down to you. Everyone thought that the venue was beautiful and the arrangements and food superb! Once again many thanks.
Chris and Anna – 25th July
Chris and I wanted to say thank you for all your help with organising our beautiful wedding day. Vicki you were amazing, nothing was too much for you from start to finish. All the staff at Prested Hall were very professional and welcoming. Many of our guests made note of this. Prested Hall is a truly special place and it was so wonderful to be able to celebrate our wedding with you. Thank you.
Dave L – 24 July 2014
Juliette and Art are away on a short break at the moment so, as the Father of the Bride, I would just like to express my personal appreciation for the effort and professionalism that you and your team put in throughout the day to make it such a “wonderful” occasion. Everything went to “Schedule”, with all the guests enjoying themselves and the location. As your sphere of influence seemed to have also included the weather as well – it was all most impressive! Thank you.
Luke and Charlotte – 20 July 2014
My wife and I chose Prested hall for our wedding venue and I couldn’t fault them at all. The hotel is beautiful and the grounds that it is set in are gorgeous. The staff were amazing and made the day flow without any problems. The food for our day was unbelievable. A big thank you to everyone involved in making our special day so wonderful. Thank you so much
Danny and Sam – 19 July 2014
Wow wow wow!! What can I say!! We had our wedding here on 19th July 2014 and all I can say is that it was perfect. With the beautiful lake and countryside scenery you couldn’t have asked for a more fabulous setting. Our wedding coordinator was Kathryn and I cannot recommend her highly enough, nothing was too much. All our family and friends had something to say about her, she could not be more caring. With her organising and delegating skills our special day was absolutely fantastic and this is one place where I would recommend having your wedding. I have been to many places and this is the only place where I have written a review so that says a lot. With everything set in one place it made it so much easier for everyone. The hotel rooms were clean and inviting so basically there’s no need to look elsewhere for a venue – this is it!! Thank you Prested Hall and thank you Kathryn for making this day possible!!
Phil and Lucy – 13 July 2014
When we came to picking the venue for our wedding, we wanted a location which could hold an outdoor ceremony, as well as having accommodation for our guests and a venue that was going to offer us excellent service. As soon as we saw the grounds of Prested Hall, the facilities available to us, and the friendliness of the staff, we knew that this had to be the one!! Right from the booking of the venue, through to the big day itself, the service was second to none. And we could not have asked for a better wedding co-ordinator in Kathryn, she was always so helpful, and nothing was ever too much. Kathryn is always so prompt with replies to emails and telephone calls, and made the day absolutely perfect for us. The grounds and the backdrops are excellent for photos, and all my guests had nothing but huge compliments for all the bedrooms, the food, the breakfast, the venue itself, and how our big day panned out. Once again, to Kathryn and all the team at Prested, thank you for making our big day so special for us.
Zoe and Simon – 12 July 2014
My husband and I chose Prested Hall as our wedding venue after seeing it once, it was the second venue we viewed and we fell in love with it instantly. It was the best decision! Vicki was our wedding coordinator and what a perfect job she did. Everything about our day was amazing. The organisation, communication, effort, friendliness, helpfulness of everyone at Prested Hall is great and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food was incredible and many of our guests commented how it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. The bridal suite is gorgeous and so comfortable. All in all, we cannot rate Prested Hall highly enough. I would recommend it to all future bride and grooms without a doubt. Thank you Prested hall for making our wedding day perfect. Zoe & Simon Lewis
Emma and Nick -26 June 2014
We picked Prested Hall for our wedding on 26 June 2014 as it met all the requirements for our non-traditional wedding day. From the very first meeting all the staff were brilliant, and with 6 months to go we were given our own wedding coordinator Kathryn who could not have been more helpful. Suggestions to help with the day were made that were over and above our expectations. The day went without a hitch and from the moment Kathryn arrived in my room first thing in the morning she was amazing and along with the other staff gave us the perfect day and dealt with any small issues that arose efficiently. Two weeks on people are still talking about the venue and the amazing food that was provided. I would recommend Prested Hall to anyone and could not find a single fault with anything if I tried! Thank you.
Anna and Steve – 25 June 2014
My husband and I got married here on 25th June 2014, we had the most amazing day, fantastic venue, beautiful grounds, amazing food, and fantastic accommodation. Jill and her team were absolutely great, they have the organising & execution down to a tee! No hiccups on the day thanks to the team and the planning couldn’t have gone better, with Jill not letting anything get forgotten about! The accommodation and food is second to none. We were very lucky with the weather and were married in the gazebo which was amazing, the well kept grounds have given us the perfect photos! We couldn’t have found a better venue to get married! Thanks to Jill and all the team! Very highly recommended! Anna & Steve
Julie B – 22 June 2014
My partner and I attended the most beautiful wedding organised by Prested Hall. We could not fault anything. Attentive friendly staff, immaculate rooms, and the reception food through to the evening buffet and buffet breakfast were amazing. If I was getting married, this would be my venue! Absolutely perfect.
Barbara C – 17 June 2014
We had the perfect day for our daughter’s wedding. The venue was beautiful and the staff at Prested Hall worked with quiet efficiency. We were relaxed and comfortable and felt very much at home. Everything went so well that we cannot think of anything we would have done differently to improve the day. Our guests were made welcome and greeted with polite and helpful respect. We have had nothing but lovely comments from all who attended. From the start of the process to the end, our planner Vicki and everyone else we came into contact with worked with us to make the day so special. It is a week now since the wedding and we are still on a high. Can’t speak more highly of the whole experience.
Anne D – 17 June 2014
Wow – what a wonderful wedding venue. Our son and his future wife had visited many venues before finding Prested Hall. Even though it was over an hour from their home, it was definitely worth the journey. Vicki, the wedding co-ordinator was amazing. She was attentive and ensured that the day ran extremely smoothly. We were disappointed not to be able to have the service held outside in the beautiful gardens, due to possible rain, however, the service was very intimate and in hindsight was just as good inside. The rooms were well presented and the beds very comfortable. A fantastic day made extra special by the venue, the staff and, of course, the wonderful bride and groom!
Jenny and Steve – 1 June 2014
We got married at Prested Hall in June 2014, and 5 stars doesn’t seem enough to rate the venue and its staff! From the first visit to Prested the team were always very helpful with questions we had in the lead up to the day, and more than accommodating with all the requests we had to make the day personal to us. Nothing seemed too much trouble or phased our coordinator Vicki! On the day itself, the team took care of liaising with our suppliers and setting everything up so we didn’t have to worry about a thing, it all went perfectly and we had so many great comments from our guests about the venue, food and service. We also stayed in the Peresteda apartments next door the night before the wedding, which were really spacious and a great place for all the girls to get ready together. Overall, I a great place to get married and I can’t recommend Prested enough!
Laura and Matt – 15 June 2014
We had our wedding at Prested Hall on 15th June 2014. It was the most perfect day, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. The venue and the surrounding grounds are beautiful, the food was amazing, the staff were all incredibly helpful and as for our wedding coordinator Kathryn, she was an absolute star! She was completely unflappable! Kathryn kept in regular contact, she was efficient, helpful and friendly throughout the whole process and myself and my husband cannot be more grateful for everything that her and her team did for us!! We have only positive things to say about this beautiful venue and we would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a venue for their big day.
Lucy and Andy – 31st May 2014
To Kathryn and the Prested Hall team. Thank you so much, it’s really appreciated. We’re really grateful for everything that you did to make our wedding day so special and just perfect! With lots of love from Mr & Mrs Young.
Kevin and Emma – 25 May 2014
Myself and my wife got married here a couple of weeks back and everything was spot on. Vicki; our wedding coordinator, was superb from the first time we met her at the end of 2012 up until (and beyond!) the wedding day! The venue is excellent (all year round) and it always looks good. It has an excellent mix of the old and the new and really does suit all age groups on the wedding day. The rooms are all excellent and it really makes the day when your family and friends can all stay the night in the same place! The food is fantastic (not something you can normally say when cooking for 70+ people at one time!) and if you manage it all then you’ve certainly done well as the portions are massive!
Emma – 19 May 2014
We attended a beautiful wedding here on May 19th. The place and staff are out of this world, nothing is too much trouble. Food was fantastic, it’s a beautiful setting and our room was stunning. The bed was the best we had ever slept in. Jill is the most thoughtful lady you will ever meet. Would recommend this venue to everyone.
Lynda and Pete – 11 May 2014
We were married here in May 2014 and this really was the perfect venue for us. Our wedding planner Jill did a fantastic job in the months leading up to the day and on the day itself. Everything ran perfectly thanks to her making sure people were in the right place at the right time! As well as helping lace up my dress so I wasn’t too late! We have had many lovely comments from our guests about the efficiency and friendliness of all the staff at Prested Hall. As well as many comments about how delicious all the food was, apparently the best wedding food most people have had.
Julie Haythorn – 4 May 2014
I just wanted to let you know what an amazing afternoon we had yesterday at Prested Hall as guests at the wedding of Rose and Andy, we were so impressed with the whole event. The staff were brilliant, very efficient and completely professional, they made us feel welcome and so comfortable. We also thought the food was fantastic, it was well cooked and very very tasty, in fact I had the vegetarian option and its one of the best cooked dishes I have been served. Well done chef! All of the courses were just lovely and the canapés were really delicious. We felt the setting was so beautiful too, it felt as if we were having drinks in a nature reserve; completely unspoilt and natural, but there were also beautiful rooms and comfortable chairs to retreat to if needed, so for our family it was a wonderful wedding and will be remembered very fondly. Thank you very much.
Rebecca and Mac – 3 May 2014
Wow what an amazing day, thank you so much for everything we couldn’t have wanted a better day. Please say a massive thank you to everyone at Prested hall for us, all our guests were was very impressed with everything. Everything was perfect and we cannot thank you enough.
Mr and Mrs Kong – 26 April 2014
We got married at Prested Hall at the end of April 2014. I cannot praise our wedding planner (Kathryn) enough. She was fully dedicated and paid so much attention to every single detail that we wanted to include on our day. I thoroughly enjoyed working closely with Kathryn and the team at Prested Hall. Seeing all of our work come together on our wedding day was the happiest moment and it was all worth it! So many of my guests also commented on what a beautiful venue it was and the dedication of Kathryn and the team on the day.
Shami and Mark – 6 April 2014
Perfect venue to get married. Easy access from the A12, large grounds, plenty of parking and a lovely Spa. The food was delicious and good portions. Kathryn, our Events Manager, is a great asset to Prested Hall, she helped make our day run smoothly, stress-free and efficiently. All of the staff were friendly, smiling and helpful. The bedrooms are very clean and comfortable, we had booked the venue for the whole day and it included breakfast for the next morning for everyone who stayed the night; it was excellent value for money. Everyone who stayed said it was an excellent place, loved the rooms, wedding day, staff, food and breakfast. We would recommend anyone to use this venue to get married. We would like to thank all the staff, especially Kathryn for making our day very memorable and extra special and will be going back to visit soon.
Laura and David – 22 March 2014
As soon as we came away after our first viewing I knew we were going to get married at Prested Hall. The staff are not only experienced, helpful and professional, but so warm and friendly you feel like you have known them for ages!! I did not worry about a thing to do with the venue as our wonderful planner Jill took care of everything and helped me with suggestions I hadn’t even thought of to help make the day run smoothly. We had a fab day and everyone commented what delicious food, what a beautiful venue it is and how polite and helpful all the staff were. Everyone who stayed loved their rooms and the breakfast too. After such a great experience we have come away with so many lovely memories and are so grateful to Jill and all the staff of Prested Hall for their amazing hard work and effort. We will definitely be going back for more visits. Thank you for helping it to be a day to remember forever!
Terry and Tracy – 21 March 2014
We first visited Prested Hall on a wedding open day and were met by a very welcoming Rachel who showed us around. We booked our wedding mid January 2014 and only had a short time to organise everything for March 2014, but the support and help leading up to our big day from our Events Managers, Rachel and Vicki was absolutely superb. I can honestly say that everything at Prested Hall on our wedding day was 5 star – from the setting up of the various rooms with our placecards, table decorations, flowers and wedding cake, to the welcoming of guests pre ceremony, check in, keeping us on track with timings to ensure there were no hitches and the quality of the 3 course wedding breakfast. There was never an empty glass on the table, the extensive evening buffet was out of this world, both in quality and quantity, and we, and all our guests that stayed overnight commented on how luxurious the rooms were. It brought my Auntie to tears of joy when she saw her room! Thank you very much Rachel, Vicki and all the staff at Prested Hall.
Joel and Amy – 9 March 2014
My wife and I got married at Prested Hall on Sunday 9th March. The day was perfect in every possible way, a perfect venue, great service and attention to detail by all of the staff and fantastic food. All of our guests commented on the setting and those that stayed were extremely complimentary about their individual rooms. Our wedding manager, Kathryn, was fantastic and made the entire build up completely stress free and smooth from the start. She also organised 20 degrees and sunshine all day!! My wife and I would strongly recommend Prested Hall to any couple considering wedding venues and cannot praise the staff enough, especially Kathryn. Thank you for a perfect day.
Steve and Ellen – 22 February 2014
My wife and I married at Prested Hall on 22nd February. From the moment we first visited to look at the venue to the time we left the day after our wedding, everything has been utterly perfect. We first visited on Bank Holiday Monday last August and met with the lovely Kathryn, who showed us around the venue. Prested was the first venue we visited, and also the last! Why keep looking when you’ve already found perfection? Everything about the layout worked well for us and we just knew that the kind of wedding we wanted would fit perfectly inside Prested Hall. What really makes this a perfect venue, however, is the staff. Everyone is warm, friendly and helpful, but most importantly, they know exactly what they are doing. Our wedding planner was Kathryn and you would be hard pressed to find a friendlier, more professional and better organised person. We were also looked after on our day by Glenn but to be honest they really are all excellent. Turning rooms from one use to another is all done with military precision but you really have no idea they are doing it. Suddenly, you walk back in to a room and everything is set up differently. All in all, our day was perfect and everything worked like clockwork. This is all due to the hard work and dedication of everyone at Prested Hall and I really cannot recommend it highly enough as a venue for your wedding.
Lottie and Matthew – 21 February 2014
My husband and I got married at Prested Hall on 21st February and couldn’t be happier with the service they provided. They ensured everything ran smoothly from start to finish without being too overbearing. Jill and her team were fantastic and made sure we didn’t need to worry about a thing, letting us know where to be and when. She worked seamlessly with our photographer and despite a few hiccups with a couple of people not making the meal at the last minute; she quickly put it right and rearranged the tables without a fuss or stress for us. The food was delicious and very generously portioned and all our guests said the same. The rooms are lovely and suited everyone, and the intimacy of the venue makes it lovely for close family and friends. They also accommodate children and babies brilliantly. We would definitely recommend Prested Hall as a wedding venue and with its very reasonable package price what more could you want!
Stephen and Kerry – 29 December 2013
We have just had our Wedding at Prested Hall on 29 December 2013 and if you are thinking of a perfect venue for a wedding we can’t recommend this venue highly enough. From the moment we booked Prested Hall we have been supported fully by their events team. We were given an event co-ordinator for our wedding day called Kathryn and she was absolutely amazing and an asset to Prested Hall. The whole day ran perfectly. Our wedding breakfast food was fabulous and our guests said it was one of the best meals they have had at a wedding so our compliments to the chef and the rest of the team. The staff at the Hall and Spa were brilliant (big thank you to Jade our beauty therapist and hairdresser), our rooms were lovely and those guests who stayed were very pleased with everything. We can’t wait to go back and stay at the hotel and remember everything that happened on our most special day thank you again Kathryn and thank you Prested Hall.
Shirley, Mother of the Bride – 12 December 2013
Our daughter was married at Prested hall on the 12th December. The day was simply wonderful thanks to the staff of this hotel with a special thank you to Jill who did the most amazing job throughout the planning and on the actual day. Everything was perfect – the food, the service, the rooms, the general atmosphere. I would highly recommend this hotel for a wedding venue and thank Prested Hall for making our daughter and new son in law’s day so very special and memorable.
Zoe and Mario – 8 December 2013
We want to say a big thank you to Jill and all the staff for helping to ensure our wedding day was the most perfect day ever. We know that there was a huge amount of work before, during and after the event for which we are truly grateful. I simply do not have the words to express how grateful we are. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Steve and Rachel – 3 November 2013
We got married at Prested Hall on 3rd November and not only is the venue perfect but the service, quality of food and accommodation are also faultless. Our wedding organiser, Karen and the rest of the team were quite simply outstanding. My wife and I felt so relaxed on the day, confident in the knowledge that everything was taken care of to the highest standard. We would whole heartedly recommend Prested Hall as a hotel and wedding venue. In fact if there is a better one then I would very much like to see it!!
Victoria and Paul – 2 November 2013
My husband and I got married here on 2nd November 2013. We had a long list of requirements for a wedding venue and Prested Hall was the only one that ticked every box. We absolutely fell in love with the venue on our first visit and looked forward to returning for all of our pre wedding meetings. I stayed in one of the apartments at the club with my bridesmaids the night before the wedding and we enjoyed being pampered in the spa and had a lovely meal. There is a train station less than a 10 minute drive from the venue (less than an hour from London) and lots of local accommodation and pubs (with a very handy Travel Lodge a short drive away). Prested were helpful in providing a list of suppliers which helped us choose a local DJ, florist, fireworks company and taxi company and they were all brilliant. The actual wedding day was amazing, everything we had hoped for and more. Everything ran seamlessly. All of our guests were impressed from the second they arrived at the impressive driveway and we have had so many compliments about the rooms, service, food etc….. The grounds are just perfect for wedding photos with the moat, bridge and gazebo. Jill was our wedding planner, she was fantastic and really took the weight of our shoulders. We will definitely be returning in the future.
Jessica and Jamie – 12 October 2013
Me and my husband got married here on 12th October 2013, and wow what a day!!!!! Jill and the whole events team handled the day with utter perfection and everything ran smoothly! Food and drinks are top of range, all our guests that stayed in house loved their rooms and found it hard to leave the next day! We will be forever grateful to the Jill and all staff of Prested for making our wedding day the BEST! All brides/grooms looking for venue BOOK IT!!!!!
Jim and Rosanne – 8 October 2013
Hi Jill – Roxanne and I wanted to pass on our thanks, for your contribution and guiding hands through the most amazing day of our lives. The support you gave us, and experience you provided, helped us plan our perfect day. Your attention to detail and willingness to muck in on the day meant everything appeared to run so smoothly. So many of our guests commented on how great your team were, which was fantastic for us to hear. Prested Hall exceeded our expectations on the day, and we couldn’t be more grateful to you, and everyone behind the scenes. As we now count down the hours to our honeymoon, we wanted to pause, and say thanks for all you’ve done for us over the past months. We really feel that without you, our special day just couldn’t have been the same.
Jenny and Alex – September 2013 (Undated)
Thank you so very much for all the efforts you and the Prested Hall team made to ensure we had a fantastic wedding day. We had a simply wonderful day – the venue was beautiful, the food was amazing, the staff were so friendly and everything went perfectly. We have so many happy memories of our wedding day and fully intend to return to Prested Hall sometime soon.
Sarah and Rob – 21 September 2013
Well what can I say? I am lost for words and cannot praise Prested Hall and staff enough. You were all amazing. Nothing was too much and you were all very accommodating. The day was perfect. I cannot recommend you highly enough. Our guests only had extremely positive feedback about the venue, the quality of the food and the exceptional service provided by you and your team. You made our day very special and magical. I will be recommending you to all family and friends.
Mr and Mrs C – 7 September 2013
We have recently held our wedding at this wonderful venue. When we were looking for wedding venues, Prested Hall was the first venue we looked at and fell in love with the place. We just knew it had to there! All the staff at Prested were really helpful throughout all of the planning and up to the big day! Any questions we had were answered, and nothing was too much! Our special day was just perfect in every way! I had my mind set on our ceremony being held outside. Unfortunately, all the rain from the day before had made the ground just too wet for this to happen. I was a little disappointed but once Jill had shown me the room set up for the ceremony, it didn’t bother me! Jill was such a BIG help throughout the whole day, anything we wanted, she helped in any way for it to happen, went beyond just being our events manager. Everything went to time – thank you Jill! All of our guests that we have spoken to have said how lovely the venue was, and how well Jill did everything for everyone! The food was very scrumptious! Our day was more than what we had imagined it to be, thank you very much to everyone at Prested Hall.
Michael, Father of the Groom – 6 September 2013
My son got married here 6th September. There were some 150 guests. The staff were fantastic the venue was amazing both inside and out and the event organiser was first class and on the ball. The whole thing flowed easily with her help. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff including getting a couple of the more over refreshed members of our party to their room. The food was fine and the buffet later in the evening very tasty. The bar stayed open as long as it was required. I would recommend it to anyone.
Judith, Mother of the Groom – 31 August 2013
The staff and facilities played a huge part in making my son’s wedding day perfect. Everything was outstanding. The staff were very efficient and friendly and all the food was delicious. We particularly appreciated the attention to detail, such as the midnight feast and champagne for the happy couple and our rose petals everywhere! Everyone who stayed overnight was very happy with all the facilities. And they even managed to arrange sun all day and the perfect temperature!!
Kieran and Joanna – 30 August 2013
We were married here on 30th August on a glorious summer day. We had 125 guests. From the original meeting through too the day we were treated like royalty and everything was catered to our needs, Prested Events Manager Jill was amazing and she personally saw to all requests and was on hand, thoughtful, and the day was beautifully planned and the venue was superb. The food was 5 star and the staff worked very hard but as always were very friendly and professional. Simply look no further and take a look at this fantastic venue which has already won awards. Many thanks to all the staff at Prested Hall.
Liam and Gemma – 25 August 2013
We had the most wonderful day and we would like to say a massive thank you to Jill and her team. Jill went far beyond just being our wedding co-ordinator. She did everything she could to make sure we had the day of our dreams, even fulfilling our wish of marrying outside after the bad weather the day before. She made sure everything ran smoothly which led through to our guests feeling relaxed and enjoying the whole experience. The rest of the team did a fantastic job, nothing was too much trouble. The venue is breathtaking, and many of guests commented on how wonderful everything was and what a beautiful setting. The rooms and food were 5 star, everyone was so impressed and have said they want to go back for dinner again or even stay. All the rooms are exceptional, fantastic quality bedding and each room has its own character. We honestly can’t praise Prested Hall highly enough – it’s a credit to the owners. If you’re looking for a wow factor wedding where you have full exclusivity or a luxurious country break then you must go to Prested Hall. We looked at a lot of venues and this had that special something, it will always hold a special place in our hearts and we will definitely be back in the not too distant future. Thank you so much to all the staff at Prested.
Lynne and Paul, Bride’s Parents – 19 August 2013
We just wanted to thank you all, especially Karen and her team, for such a wonderful day. Everything went so smoothly for Amanda and Dean and it was a perfect day for us all. We had lots of comments from our guests about how lovely everything looked. There were also many comments on how good the food was and how big the portions were. Once again thank you all for our perfect wedding day.
Clive and Julie – 14 August 2013
So you’re getting married and you, having looked at lots of venues (just like us), choose the most outstanding Wedding Venue in Essex – Prested Hall. From the first meeting at a wedding fair, to the breakfast after our special day – everything was outstanding. Feedback from both of us and all of the wedding party, on venue, food, accommodation, the events team and the way the whole 24 hours is tailored to you personally is truly outstanding. Sometimes in life it takes special people to make things special and that’s what you get at Prested Hall.
Alison and Steve – 17 July 2013
We would like to say a HUGE thank you to you and everyone at Prested Hall for all their hard work and for making our wedding such an amazing day. It was everything we hoped for and dreamt of. We enjoyed every minute and so did everyone that attended. So many people have told us it was the best wedding they have ever been to, so relaxed and well organised. Everywhere looked wonderful, the food was absolutely delicious, the bedrooms were beautiful and so comfortable and everyone was so pleasant and helpful. It was sad to leave on the Saturday morning, especially after such a delicious breakfast! Please pass on our thanks to everyone concerned for all their hard work and an especially big thank you to Vicki (our coordinator) for making the planning so enjoyable and ensuring the actual day ran so smoothly with your super-efficient organising. From start to finish, the whole wedding was so stress free and such a pleasure that we feel incredibly lucky and really can’t thank you enough. We will certainly be telling all our family, friends and colleagues (and anyone else that will listen) that Prested is absolutely the best possible wedding venue anyone could ever hope to find. We’re definitely looking forward to lots of anniversaries and Valentine’s Day meals at Prested Hall.
Les and Jan, Bride’s Parents – 14 July 2013
Finally coming down to earth and reflecting on last Sunday. I write to say an enormous thank you to Jill and all the staff for an absolutely perfect day. It really couldn’t have been any better. You all worked hard to ensure everything went to plan and it certainly did. Erika and Matt knew exactly what they wanted, particularly Erika! The layout was impressive and beautiful, the colour scheme was gorgeous. We have had so many thank you’s and praise for the venue we have lost count. The rooms were lovely and very comfortable and the breakfast next morning was scrumptious. Thank you once again for making their wedding and our day so perfect.
Grant and Velleta – 12 July 2013
Thank you so much for allowing us to have a wonderful day and not worry about anything. Everything ran so smoothly and all the food was amazing. We all had a wonderful day.
Lee and Kaymi – 23 June 2013
Dear Vicki and the team at Prested, Thank you for helping us create the most memorable and beautiful wedding. We had so many compliments from our guests. You and your team realised all our ideas and, in such a short time in the morning, you decorated the venue better than we expected or could have done ourselves. We could not have done it without you and your team at Prested Hall. Thank you.
Julie and Chris – 21 June 2013
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Vicki for all she did for us before and on our wedding day. She was very professional, friendly, helpful and well-organised. All the staff were great, the food was fantastic, the wedding tables looked beautiful and a great time was had by all. Compliments were overflowing from our guests on how lovely Prested Hall is and they thought it was a perfect venue for a wedding. Our guests were very impressed by you all. So many thanks again, you did us proud and you should all be thanked for your hard work and efforts.
Mr and Mrs R – 7 June 2013
Dear Vicki, we would like to say a big thank you, to you, and your team. Your service and organisation was second to none. You helped make a perfect day run smoothly from start to finish. We will certainly be highly recommending your venue to others in the future. Once again, thank you to all of you
Michael and Danielle – 2 June 2013
I would like to thank you personally, Vicki, for the time and effort you put in to ensure our day ran smoothly and was completely perfect. You explained everything that was happening and were with me and Michael every step of the way. The staff were so polite and helpful and nothing was too much trouble, your hospitality is outstanding and the food was exquisite. Every element that went into the wedding was perfect and I want you and all the staff who were involved in making our day to know how grateful we are. It was truly amazing and we will take these memories with us forever. I have received so many fantastic reviews of their experience of our wedding and that’s all down to you guys. You’re an incredible wedding planner and I want you to know that the time and effort you put into your job is reflected, I can see you love what you do and that shone through on our wedding day.
Paul and Emma – 1 June 2013
Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day perfect – you were all amazing and we can’t thank you enough and will always appreciate all your efforts.
Jo and Jon – 30 May 2013
We got married at Prested Hall on 30th May and Jill was our co-ordinator. The whole day was perfect and so many friends and family have told us it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to and that our chosen venue was perfect. We had visited several wedding venues whilst planning our day but both of us knew as soon as we walked into Prested Hall this was exactly what we were looking for. We can’t fault it – Jill was amazing – calm, organised and she always gave us helpful advice when we were unsure of anything. Both of us said it was a shame we only live a few miles from Prested Hall as we would love to stay there for a few nights. All our guests had two food choices for each course of our wedding breakfast and so this catered for everyone and the food was exceptional. Prested Hall felt homely, comfortable and friendly. A perfect day that we will always remember!
Sarah and John Paul – 25 May 2013
Just wanted to say thank you for helping make our day so special and run smoothly. We were really impressed with all the staff and the attention to detail from Prested Hall. We will definitely be recommending you as a great place to have a wedding.
N and R – May 2013 (Undated)
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Cathy, Mark and the rest of the team for all your help and support in making our wedding day such a special day. Everything ran smoothly which meant that we were able to relax and enjoy our day and we came away with lots of lovely memories. All of our guests commented on the wonderful venue and the excellent service throughout the day. Many thanks again and we are looking forward to visiting again.
Mother of the Bride – May 2013 (Undated)
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all staff (especially to Jill our co-ordinator) for helping to make our daughter’s wedding day such a memorable time. The day ran smoothly and happily. The wedding breakfast and evening buffet were outstanding and our only regret was that we couldn’t do the buffet justice as we were still full from the very tasty and generous ‘breakfast’. All staff were friendly and helpful, the chefs delivered amazing food. Thank you again for a high standard of service from all concerned which helped us celebrate our daughter and son-in-law’s special day.
Rosemary, Bride’s mother – May 2013 (Undated)
Couldn’t have had a better day. All aspects were perfect – Jill, the wedding co-ordinator, staff and chefs, made this a special, happy day to remember. Would love to do it all again!
Judith and Terry – May 2013 (Undated)
We just wanted to thank you very much indeed for everything you did to make our daughter’s wedding day such a wonderful occasion. Everything went so smoothly and the guests commented on how lovely and comfortable the venue was, and how nice the food was. All the staff were extremely kind and helpful, and all the rooms were very comfortable. Thank you so much for all your help and for organising the day so perfectly.
Michelle and Matt – 27 April 2013
I just wanted to say thank you for everything. Our wedding was better than we could have imagined. Everyone commented on how nice the food and venue were. It all went really well, please pass on our thanks to all the kitchen, bar and waiting staff. I loved all the little touches, putting the sausage rolls on cake stands for the buffet and using the bridesmaids’ bouquets as centrepieces at breakfast the next day were really thoughtful.
Selena and Darren – 26 April 2013
We had an absolutely perfect day. Jill and all the staff there made sure the day ran smoothly and could not have been more helpful. The venue is beautiful and the overnight rooms are lovely and full of character. The food and drink were delicious and portion sizes were generous. All our guests have commented how great Prested Hall is. We would definitely recommend Prested Hall to everyone. A huge thank you to Jill and all the other staff there.
Jen and Adam – 19 April 2013
My wife and I got married here last Friday. The service, food and, obviously, the manor were fantastic. Big thank you to Vicki, and anyone who helped her, for all of her help on making our day run so smoothly!!! Thank you so so much everyone, you looked after us and our guests and made the day run so smoothly. We felt no pressure re timings and it was all totally fantastic and helped made our day so special.
Grace and Imran – 14 April 2013
Dear Jill, I just wanted to say a big thanks for all you did on our wedding day! We just got back from our honeymoon a couple of weeks ago and everyone we have seen since has said they had a spectacular time. You really went out of your way with every finishing touch! Mum said it was as though you were part of the family on the day as you made sure everything was just right!
Keris and Ben – 13 April 2013
Vicki, we can’t possibly thank you enough for everything you have done to make yesterday the most amazing day of our lives!! Please thank all your staff as they were amazing! All our guests said how amazing Prested is and the staff were brilliant and just made the day go smoothly! I can’t believe it is over already and wish I could do it all again right now!! Thank you for all your help, advice and support over the last few months and for every second you were there yesterday.
Naomi and Martin – 5 April 2013
Thank you so much for making our wedding day go so smoothly. I had the best day ever, and everyone has commented on how nice the venue was and how helpful the staff were, making sure things went to plan. So thanks so much, it really was great. Thanks again for everything; I forgot to mention the food was fantastic too. Everyone really enjoyed themselves.
Paul and Sally – 28 March 2013
Our wedding was 28th March 2013. Our wedding organiser was Jill, who, I have to say, was fantastic right from booking the wedding a year before, up to and including the wedding day. She was always available by email or telephone and was happy to assist with any queries that we had. I really felt that her advice was really honest and helpful rather than purely designed for us to spend more money. Her advice saved us money on things we would otherwise have spent on unnecessarily. On the day, the wedding went exceptionally smoothly with no hiccups or disappointments, Guests who were staying in the hotel bedrooms (included in our wedding package) were all able to access their rooms earlier than the guaranteed time. The food was exceptional. I was very pleased with the quality and quantity of the food both in the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet. All of the food was served hot and I thought they made an exceptional job of catering for a group of over 70 at once. The hotel rooms were clean and tidy and I would recommend this venue for a wedding or for a quiet night away.
Mr and Mrs R – 23 March 2013
My new husband and I cannot say thank you enough to the team at Prested Hall, and in particular Jill. We had the most amazing day ever, and it could not have happened without them. Jill was outstanding and an amazing credit to the venue, and so many guests were utterly impressed by the standard of service. Nothing was too much trouble and we were given the gift of having the day exactly how we wanted it. I cannot sing their praises highly enough. Everything was perfect and we could not have asked or wanted for anything different.
Grant – February 2013 (Undated)
We had looked at loads of other venues but wanted something quite specific. Jill was our wedding planner, and was a great help through the day. We had the ceremony in the oak room and then ate in the breakfast room. Rooms were exceptionally clean and very comfortable, no complaints from any of our guests. Food was delicious – we picked one of the standard wedding breakfasts but the hotel were happy to make some tweaks and changes where we asked, (something other wedding venues were not prepared to do). All extras were provided and we really felt the team went over and above, without invading our privacy. Had my hair done at the health spa, lady was lovely and put me at ease on the day. Can’t wait for our Valentine’s meal here.
Danielle and Justin – 28 February 2013
A very special thank you to Jill and all the staff at Prested Hall for making our wedding day one none of our guests will ever forget and a fantastic celebration – exactly what we wanted it to be. Your food, hospitality and mostly your assistance made our day. Thank you so much.
Paul and Lis – 20 February 2013
From the moment we arrived at Prested Hall in October we both knew that it was the venue for our wedding. Everything was exactly how we hoped it would be and we had the most wonderful time. The food, the rooms, the service and the staff helped to make it a day to treasure. Please pass on our thanks to everyone. Special thanks to Cathy for your brilliant support and expertise.
Karen and Gary – January 2013 (Undated)
To our wedding planner Jill, thank you, for your expertise, your advice, your never ending patience and your understanding during the planning of our wedding from our initial enquiry in December 2011 and all the months that followed and, of course, our ‘truly memorable wedding day’. Once again, a very big thank you.
Melinda and Daniel – 12 January 2013
Thank you so much for making our wedding such an amazing event! All your work leading up to and on the big day is truly appreciated. We will remember the day fondly for the rest of our lives.
Mike and Sue – 5th January 2013
We had our wedding here on 5th January 2013. It was a fantastic environment for a wedding – even though it was cold outside. The day was better than we could have ever imagined. Our wedding coordinator (Jill) made things go extremely smoothly, letting us know when we needed to be here or there and what was going on. The food was delicious – although we chose a single menu for everyone – it felt so much more than that. Nobody could fault the service or the food. Having exclusive use of the building made it more special. The rooms are all different in layout, which adds to the flavour of the place. Lovely beds and big chunky bedding that you can get lost in, together with tea and coffee facilities and bottled water. The next morning breakfast was just as lovely as the food on the day itself. The hot food eggs, sausages, bacon etc. were constantly topped up, and a range of cereals, pastries etc. with tea and coffee on tap! It was clear nobody wanted to leave to the point that housekeeping began when we were still all talking – our fault not theirs!! We just wanted to repeat the day before. All in all I can thoroughly recommend Prested Hall for a wedding.
