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.
