Coombe Lodge Wedding Reviews

We love helping you have the perfect day. We've made so many friends over the years, you can read some of their wedding reviews here: 


"Dear Martha

We are writing to thank you all so, so much and to kindly ask that you please pass on our thanks to everyone at Coombe Lodge for the most amazing day on Sunday!

All such lovely people, so welcoming, helpful and attentive - you have a wonderful team there.

We could not have asked for a more perfect day for our son’s wedding.

An extra thank you for making the last hour, of countdown, adjustment possible with the chairs being able to be rushed outside as the sun shone down for us.

It truly was a day we will always remember!

Our very best wishes to you all for continued success at Coombe Lodge"

 Sue and Frank Daley - Parents of the Groom (23rd July 2023)


"Dear Martha & Charlotte, 

Where do we start...from the moment we stepped through the door on our first show around 2 years ago we knew Coombe Lodge was different from any other venue we'd looked around, but we didn't realise how special it really is until Sunday! A venue is only as good as the team running it, and you guys are just amazing - what a well-oiled machine! 

Martha, thank you for answering the copious emails and making everything so simple and easy! You have a way of putting anyone at ease with your calmness! 

Charlotte, thank you for making sure everything ran smoothly on our big day, and for placating Matt, aka Groomzilla, when he realised there was no red bull! Moving the ceremony outside last minute meant a huge amount, and it was all just prefect! Thank you also for making sure mum's friend John, on crutches,was okay during the day too. 

Catering team, wow what can we say?! The chicken was the tenderest I've ever tasted and everyone commented on the quality! The pizzas in the evening, the sausage rolls and the breakfast were all second to none. Thank you! 

 Waiters and waitresses, what an attentive team you are. You made sure everyone was well fed and watered and were so professional! The young boy who worked the long shift and even served us breakfast (Seth I think?), what a wonderful young man you are! Polite, professional and always went the extra mile - thank you! 

 Cleaning team, you're like little fairies! The rooms were spotless, despite the tight turnaround from one wedding leaving to the next arriving! How do you guys do it?! 

 All our suppliers said how fabulous and professional Coombe Lodge was but even that doesn't do you all justice. Thank you to the whole team, behind the scenes too, and we can't wait to come back and visit one day! 

 There should be a little delivery of something for you all arriving on Monday. 

 All our love"

 The new Mr & Mrs Daley - 23rd July 2023



We would just like to thank everyone involved with our wedding day on Saturday 24th June. Everything ran so smoothly and on time and all of the food was delicious. We would like to give a special thank you to Charlotte who could not do enough for us both on the day and the lead up to the wedding. She was fantastic and is a real credit to coombe lodge. Thank you again for the best day of our lives.

 Many thanks"

Ryan & Katy Radnedge - 24th June 2023


"Dear Izzy, 

Thank you so, SO much for running our wedding on Saturday. It was absolutely the most wonderful day and that was largely due to your excellent management of everything - both before the event and during the actual day. You took over from Tom seamlessly on the admin front and knew every detail. You were brilliant - always there to take our drinks (and return them!) at all the key moments, and a face of reassuring calm when we needed prompting to do something, or go somewhere!

We would also like to extend our thanks to everyone on the CL team, both front of house, and everyone behind the scenes who played a part on the day, and in the run up. Honestly, CL was looking absolutely stunning in the sunshine, your wonderful gardeners and grounds-people had done an amazing job. 

We would be grateful if you could please send us the final food and drink invoice, just for our records, when you get a moment. 

We hope that today's wedding is going well and that you can enjoy a well earned day off soon!

With very best wishes, 

Nicola and Iwan"

Mr & Mrs Smith - 20th May 2023


"Dear Izzy,

Where do we start!

We arrived at the venue at midday and shown to our rooms (Wow!). From then on the day just got better and better. All the staff were attentive, friendly, and personable.

The timing of everything that Freddy and Lewis asked for was spot on. The service for the wedding breakfast was unbelievable. The food was incredible. The evening celebrations and the bar service were brilliant.

We know, that you as the Planner, who Freddy and Lewis put their trust and faith in, was the centre of everything and you deserve every congratulation.

The service continued well past midnight, where the staff acted as drinks waiters, when the party continued on the first floor landing. We had a great sleep…….then to breakfast, which had been set out beautifully. The breakfast offered a huge variety and everything was delicious. The waiting staff again were superb

After breakfast we had to sort out flowers, and a mountain of cheese. Again, the staff helped in different ways, including the offer to take some flowers to the local church. Everything was relaxed and calm, even though the wedding guests for that day were arriving!

You will know doubt be aware that our grandson Jack left ‘Bubby’ behind! There was a lot of tears, and ‘Bubby’ was found the following day. Not in our wildest of dreams did we think of how the return was dealt with. Relief as far as Jack was concerned, but the adults truly appreciated the compassion in how the return was handled, and the image captured at the time will provide for a fond and everlasting memory

We have been to many weddings and other functions over the years and nothing has come near to the overall service provided by you and all the staff from start to finish on 16th – 17th April 2023.

Thank you to you and all the staff at Coombe Lodge. Please share this with everyone that was involved in the day.

Best Wishes"

Pat & Frank Mason (Parents of Lewis) - 16th April 2023


"Hey hey hey Izzy! Well, you’re just the best really, aren’t you?!

Thank you so much for all your hard work in making our special day run so seamlessly. You helped us stay calm all through the planning process and then delivered such an amazing day for us. 

Everyone has been commenting on the beauty of the venue, the kindness of your staff and the excellence of the food served up!

We’ve had a few photos sent to us, so see some of our favourites attached! If you use any, please tag @sarahgrayphotography

Thanks so much Izzy!

Freddy and Lewis xx"

Freddy & Lewis - 16th April 2023


"Hello Martha and team,

Kieran and I just wanted to email to say a massive thank you for last Friday! We had the most amazing day ever!! Yourself and the team were always there whenever we needed you, from explaining arrangements, offering us drinks and checking we were okay and that we had everything we needed.

Because of you all the day ran so smoothly, the decorations, food and entertainment exceeded both our expectations, the day was just perfect. We cannot thank you enough! We will definitely be recommending you guys to future couples!!

Many many thanks and best wishes,

Megan & Kieran Walsh xx"

Megan & Kieran - 14th April 2023



We just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at Coombe Lodge  for making our wedding day so perfect!  From the first time we met with you to discuss options for our wedding day, we were always confident that we had picked the great place to hold our reception. Everyone we spoke to throughout the process was incredibly friendly and helpful. Nothing was ever too much trouble for you all! On the day of the wedding, all of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and were very impressed by the level of service. The food was incredible! The wedding breakfast was the best food I've ever had at a wedding and all our evening guests loved the fish and chips too! 

A special thank you to Tom for answering all our last minute questions, Martha for replying to all of our emails and blowing up the huge banana for the photo booth and Izzy who was with us throughout the day and was just amazing. 

We honestly can't thank you all enough!

Best Wishes, 

Louise and Dom"

Louise & Dom - 1st April 2023


"Dear Charlotte,

 Thank you so, so much to you and the Coombe Lodge team for all you did on 14th! You were all just amazing and we had the best day. We are beyond delighted we were able to get married at Coombe Lodge and, cheesy though it sounds, it truly was a fairytale day! From the small touches like morning prosecco to making sure Ric and I had a few minutes together straight after the ceremony, to how lovely the staff were on the day and how beautifully our table favours were set out, it was all brilliant.

 We're back from honeymoon now and had the most wonderful time. Please let us know if it would help to leave reviews anywhere, and where.

 Very best wishes,

 Bex xxx 

Bex & Ric - 14th January 2023


"Dear Charlotte and all the team at Coombe Lodge - We just wanted to write to you to thank you so sincerely for everything you did to make our daughter Bex & Ric's wedding such a wonderful one. You and all the staff, without exception, could not have been more kind, helpful and efficient. We thought that Coombe Lodge was beautiful, too and we hope to have the opportunity to come back one day.

Thank you again - it was the best day!

With all our best wishes - Sally & Mark Lovey's"

Mother & Father of the Bride - 14th January 2023


"Hi Martha

We honestly can't thank you and the rest of the team at Coombe Lodge enough for giving us the best day ever. The day was just faultless. You and the team decorated the venue soo perfectly. All the communications from enquiry stage all the way to the day was effortless, incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. Nothing was ever too much. We wish we could go back and do it all again. We would love to pop in and say thanks personally. let me know when you are at the venue and free.

 Mrs Holly Perks!"

Holly & Richard - 2nd December 2022

"Dear Martha and all the team at Coombe Lodge - Thank you so much for being part of our special day! We are both so grateful for all the preparations and hard work that went into our wedding. We had such a perfect day and will remember it forever, we look forward to visiting later on for our year anniversary!

Love from Richard & Francesca xx"

Mr & Mrs Lane - 11th November 2022


"Dear Tom and everyone at CL,

Thank you!!! You were all amazing and we had the best day celebrating with you at Coombe Lodge. You and the staff truly went above and beyond and all of our guests commented on both how beautiful the venue is and the exceptional quality of service and food you provided. Even our hard-to-impress family members were raving about you all! One of the many reasons we chose CL as a wedding venue was the level of professionalism and ease at which you help couples on the day – you fully lived up to this in every way.

A special thank you for dropping off my cousins to their accommodation, giving my Gran a ‘proper’ cup of tea, and posting my credit card!

Thanks again – we loved having our wedding at CL!

 All the best,

James and Rachel x"

James & Rachel - 15th October 2022


"Dear Martha - We just wanted to say a big thank you for all you did to make Beccy & Paul’s wedding celebration so amazing on Saturday.

Everything was perfect, the venue, the food, the service and even the weather was great!

Coombe Lodge has been so accommodating to all of Beccy & Paul’s wishes, we will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.

Thank you again for all you did.

 Kind Regards, Carl & Sharon Chalker (Beccy's Parents)"

Beccy & Paul - 8th October 2022


"Hi Tom and the team,

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help making our wedding the best day ever! Especially thanks to Tom for making sure everything ran so smoothly and for keeping calm when my grandad fainted, you were so patient and really helped us get the evening going again (we really appreciated it)! 

The venue looked amazing (and we were super lucky with the weather) so thank you so much for everything.  

We will definitely come back and visit if the oppotunity comes up!

 Thanks again,

Amber and Oli Handy"

Amber & Ollie - 24th September 2022


"Hi Martha -  We hope your well. We wanted to get in touch to thank everyone at Coombe Lodge for an unforgettable day on Thursday. We were so moved by the way the team dressed the venue with all of our personal touches and guests were absolutely blown away by the venue, setting, food, the rooms and standard of service. It was a first-class wedding with a truly Italian vibe which exceeded all of our expectations. 

 We really didn't expect the breakfast setting that we were greeted to the next morning! It was like an extension of our wedding breakfast and even the photograph of Jo's mum was placed on the top table amongst the flowers. It meant so much to Jo that the team had done that.

 We are sorry that we don't remember names by the lady who was on shift that night and in the morning (tall, dark hair) was exceptional and couldn't do enough for us and our guests. We appreciate we were up into the early hours upstairs just reliving the day and she went above and beyond for us.

Once again, thank you all for a truly magical day.  Coombe Lodge has a special place in our hearts and we would love to re-visit (out of season of course) if we are able to. 

Thanks so much, Jo & Sean"

Jo & Sean - 30th June 2022


Dear Martha and all the team at Coombe Lodge - We just wanted to say thank you so much, from the bottom of our hearts, for the best day of our lives!

 Throughout this whole process everyone has been incredible. Martha and Tom especially, you both have been a total joy and so unbelievably helpful and understanding. I'm so pleased we got there in the end - and the day was more than perfect! Martha - you were amazing on the day and it ran like clockwork - it was so special to have you there on the day after first meeting you 4 years ago! Also to mention the food - incredible!

 Even the weather was on our side and we got to have our gorgeous outdoor ceremony, and a surprise from a double rainbow which has made some incredible shots! The photo attached was taken by the best man - I can't wait to see the professional ones! We will send some across when we get them :)

 Thank You so much again, can't wait to visit for our 1 year anniversary!

Lauren & Josh - 19th June 2022


"Hi Eden - I just wanted to send you an email to say thank you again. Although we can’t quite believe our wedding was almost a week ago!

You helped make our day absolutely perfect and we felt that every attention to detail had been thought of. You were never far away if I needed you for anything & all of the staff were extremely helpful...

 So a big thank you to you, the rest of the team & hats off to the chef!!! We had so many compliments about the food!!

 Thank you so much for our perfect day!"

Amy & Tim - 7th May 2022


 “We don’t know where to begin to say thank you! From the first meeting where you didn’t laugh at our silly questions to your constant approachable and wonderful nature, especially with the endless emails! You are absolutely amazing and all your hard work was a huge reason why our wedding day was so perfect.

So many of our friends and family commented on how smoothly the day ran and that is all thanks to you and your team!

Thank you so much for helping us to have our dream wedding, a day we will never forget and will be forever grateful for!

Lots of Love X"

Cima & Ben - 1st May 2022


"We recently got married at coombe lodge and absolutely loved it, from the minute we first drove up the drive looking for a wedding venue, we just knew this would be it. The day itself was absolutely perfect, everything was organised and taken care of for us, Anita who looked after us on the day, made sure we had everything to hand, and even put a board of canapes together for us, as we didn't had time to grab any! The food was amazing, just incredible for all the meals! The venue for sunset was just amazing and once the wedding was done, we had the best time celebrating with our nearest and dearest, thank you to everyone at Coombe lodge, Martha for the build up and Anita for the day itself, our wedding was everything we wanted it to be. Matt and Laura"

Matt & Laura - 1st April 2022


"We just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything on Thursday. The day ran so smoothly and we honestly wouldn't have changed anything. We had so many comments on what a great venue we had chosen and we definitely agree with that! It really was the best day of our lives. Thanks again"

Jordan & Dan - 31st March 2022


 "Thank you for making the day so special for Alex and Joe and all our guests at a stunningly beautiful location.

 However, thank you simply doesn’t do justice to your incredible reaction to our early morning plight.

 There we all were in the car park of our overnight accommodation in our night clothes.  With the fire brigade in attendance it suddenly became obvious that the Bride (our daughter), Bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride, Paige Boy along with make up, hair and flower ladies, with myself and others were left with nowhere to get ready.

 A panicked and stressed call was made to you.  Your response was truly amazing, telling us to come straight to Coombe Lodge.  You opened up all our bedrooms, including the Bridal Suite. To then lay on tea, coffee, hot croissants and Danish pastries was so thoughtful.  Your kindness moved us to tears.

 You quite literally saved the day.

 We will send some photos when we have them. Needless to say we will be recommending Coombe Lodge in the future."

 Ken and Debbie Purnell - 24th March 2022


"Hello - This is just a quick note to say thank you so much for laying on Hannah and Dom's wedding last Saturday. The venue is beautiful and the service from Martha and all the team was absolutely brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble. 

As the parents of the Bride we had a stress free day, and it is one we will look back on with great memories for many years to come.

Thank you all nice again."

Patrick and Gail Haughton 


"I can’t believe it’s a week since our wedding. We both wanted to send you a email to thank you so much for helping us create the best day ever. All of the team were amazing on the day and a special mention to Tom too who dealt with a few issues the next day.  We had so many comments on how accommodating the staff were throughout the day. 

 Everyone also said that the food was the best they’ve ever had at a wedding and we couldn’t agree more, it was all delicious, even down to breakfast the following day.

We wish we could do it all again and that is hugely down to the fact that we chose Coombs Lodge, it is a very special venue!

Thank you once again X"

Sarah and Simon Mahoney - 18th March 2022


"Hi Tom, Martha!

 Just a quick note to say thank you and the entire team at Coombe Lodge SO MUCH for our wedding on Friday.

 The day ran so smoothly, exactly as I planned and we both had the best time. The venue is spectacular and you wouldn’t believe the amount of guests who came up to us to say how impressed they were with it.

 Both of you helped put my mind at ease throughout the planning stages and Tom you were an absolute star on the day, making sure everyone was in the right place at the right time, keeping Craig and me on top of everything at all times.

 The props set-up was exactly what I had planned, if not better, and the music room looked absolutely incredible for both the ceremony and the wedding breakfast. We also loved that you moved the flowers and props into the breakfast room the following morning - that was such a lovely touch and allowed us to appreciate it all for just a few moments longer!

 The accommodation was stunning, and thank you to whoever turned our room down at some point in the evening - that was really thoughtful.

 We also wanted to thank the gentleman who served us at the breakfast in the morning - he was very patient whilst we were waiting for the last few guests to come down so we could take our seats!

 And of course, thank you for the many, many emails we've exchanged, changing dates and timings. You always managed to put my mind right at ease and made a very stressful process a lot more manageable, so thank you.

 Thanks again!!!"

Rhiannon and Craig - 4th February 2022


"Dear Charlotte & The Team - Thank you, thank you, thank you for a most wonderful wedding. From start to finish it was outstanding and everything went like clockwork. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and looked after us well. Charlotte you were great and catered for our every need. Everyone has praised you either verbally or by thank you. 

Thank you all so much."

Margaret North (Mother of the Bride) - 15th January 2022


Hi Charlotte - I just wanted to say the biggest thank you to you for all of your help and support with our wedding! You were so helpful and patient with all of my million and one questions and made the whole wedding planning process so easy. It was so easy for us to put our trust in you in setting up the best day of our lives so far... everything was honestly perfect....we couldn't have asked for more! And the fact that you spent the whole day hobbling due to your running injury and yet carried on as if nothing had happened, all to ensure we had the best day, is just one of the reasons we can't thank you enough. 

 We have received our wedding photos yesterday and seeing the venue filled with all of our loved ones brought back so many happy memories of the day and will certainly be something we will all remember for the rest of our lives. So we both just wanted to say thank you for helping us start our married life in the most perfect way! We are hoping to come back for our first anniversary so it would be amazing to see you again if you are still there! Lots of love

From the new Mr and Mrs Saunders - 20th November 2021


"Dear Martha & The Team - Thank you so very much for bringing order to chaos, calmness to hectic, and magic to our special day. It wouldn't be this wonderful day without you. Thank you!"

Rich & Leah - 12th November 2021


We would like to thank the whole team at Coombe Lodge for making Shona's and Adam's Wedding so perfect. The whole day was absolutely beautiful. The change over in the rooms throughout the day went so smoothly and was completely unnoticed by the guests. The food was absolutely gorgeous and the service by the team throughout the day was spectacular, no job was too small for them and they attended to all the guests needs promptly and with courtesy. The set up of breakfast the following day was also so  lovely , again nothing was too much for the team.

I was amazed how you manage the change overs not only on the day but also between the different wedding parties . Obviously you have such a large amount of experience in this area, you really do have it down to a tee, ensuring that the wedding party are supported from start to finish. Everyone has commented on the beautiful venue, and the lovely food and whilst I may be biased , this was certainly one of the best wedding venues I have ever attended.

Thank you so much for everything you did,

 Best Wishes

Linda and Dale Hill (25th October 2021)


"Dear Tom - We’d just like to say a personal thanks to you and your team for looking after us throughout Debbie and Ali’s wedding celebrations.

We both commented how wonderful you were at magically appearing just when you were needed and we are particularly grateful for the care and attention you gave us during the official part of the celebration.

With very kind regards"

 John and Helen Faulkner - Father & Mother of the Bride, 19th October 2021


"Dear All Staff at Coombe Lodge, Kate and I just wanted to say thank you for everything you all did for us, not just on our wedding day but beforehand too. Special mentions to Tom, Anita and Jake for helping making everything run smoothly. Anita, thank you for working with my temperamental tech and for fixing my mother-in-laws earrings. Jake, the evening went brilliantly and breakfast was wonderful. Please also thank all the catering and waiting staff as the food was perfect and everything flowed seamlessly! You all really put us at ease and allowed us to just concentrate on the magic that was our day. 

Once again our most sincere thanks to you all. May we wish you a very happy new year. With Love xx"

"Dear Martha - We just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help and advice in planning the most special and important day in our lives. Throughout all of the challenges that C-19 brought, you've been a real rock for us and it's made life so much easier knowing we don't have to worry about anything on the day. Thanks for always being there to answer our questions and put our minds at ease!

Love xx"

To the team at Coombe Lodge - We wanted to say a huge thank you for making our day so perfect. We had the most amazing day we could have dreamt of and it was all down to the hard work of all your staff. The day ran so smoothly and everyone commented on how wonderful the food was and how hard working and polite all the staff were.

You were all so accommodating and we felt like nothing was too much of an ask. We really appreciate everything you did for us, and it's a day we will remember for the rest of our lives. 

A special thank you from our friend, one of the team leant her son their trousers since he forgot his! She was so grateful and it just shows what incredible staff you have! Thanks again, we hope one day you might do the dine & unwind as we would love to come back! All the best Xx

"Hi Charlotte & Tom - We just wanted to say a massive thank you once again for everything you did to make our wedding perfect on 21st August! You all made us feel so welcome each time we came to the venue either alone or with our family and everyone of our guests commented on how smoothly the day went. Tom, you were amazing again from the day we booked right up until breakfast the next morning! It is clear how hard you work and we can honestly say that you were part of the reason we chose Coombe lodge - it was the most friendly out of all the venues we saw and it remained that way for the couple of years we visited and planned the wedding with you. So thank you! We are so sad that it's over but had the most amazing day and hopefully we will be back to visit as a guest at another wedding in the future!"

Emma & Joe - 21st August 2021 


"Firstly Dan and I want to say the hugest thank you from the bottom of our hearts for our incredible wedding. We truly had the most wonderful, memorable day and we want to thank all Coombe Lodge staff for making it possible!! The day went seamlessly thanks to your wonderful organisation and staff. The venue looked gorgeous as ever and everyone was so complimentary about how you had set it up! Nothing was too much trouble for any staff member whether it was moving our flowers to create an indoor backdrop, Anita volunteering to utilise the bouquets as additional décor, finding food for a last minute vegan guest who replaced someone who couldn’t make it, making sure the bridal suite was tidy and perfect for us at the end of the night, the list goes on!! and of course just doing everything in such an organised and timely manner!!

We have also had so many compliments about the food! Everyone was so happy! I think it’s the best salmon and cheesecake I’ve ever had! Please, please thank your incredible chef!!

Some additional special thank yous:

To Anita for just being everywhere on the day, from sorting my dress and veil, to always checking in with me and Dan and making sure everything ran smoothly and that we were happy. Also, so many guests knew who you were due to your support and presence on the day and were hugely complimentary of all that you did! I’d also like to apologise to you, Anita for my drunken state haha I promise my tears were drunk fuelled, not sadness!!

To Tom for firstly, adjusting the button holes! Goodness me I gave Dan one job haha! But you Tom were also invaluable in the organisation and smoothness of the day! You were always present and helpful and we are so thankful!

Also to all the Coombe lodge waiting and support staff (in particular Alice who was just so delightful, incredible and everywhere we needed her to be to help) who were amazing! We’re so lucky to have had all these amazing staff members!

We are on cloud nine and wanted to send a thank you once we’d had a week to digest our incredible day. The venue was perfection, you as staff were too and both Dan and I and our guests had the most perfect day!!

Zoe & Daniel - 20th August 2021


"Hi Martha - Just a quick message of thanks for you and your team at Coombe Lodge for the exceptional level of dedication and expertise shown during Dan & Jens wedding last weekend.

We could not have been more pleased at how their day went and everyone who we have spoken to could not have been more impressed. You and your teams efforts in rearranging the ceremony so that it could go ahead outdoors ,as hoped, was truly magnificent when the weather finally dried up only 30 minutes before the ceremony was due to start .

Everything that you did from the moment we arrived until we left on Monday was perfect and we cannot thank you enough

Kind Regards - Robert & Jayne Thomas" 

1st August 2021


"Good afternoon Tom & the team. Firstly from both of us we would like to say a massive thank you for the effort that went in from you yesterday .

We can not thank you enough for the friendliness and being so welcoming to all guest , friends and family.

 "I just wanted to send you a note to say thank you for all that you did for us to make our wedding day the best day ever! Matthew and I are so grateful to you and the team for making everything run so smoothly so that we didn't have to think about anything through the day. We were so happy with the venue, the food and the service that we received.

Thank you so much for everything, you were all so helpful leading up to the day as well as on the day and I am just so grateful to you all. Yourself, Martha and Tom were especially amazing and accommodating.

Thank you so much again.

All the best Xx"

Emily & Matthew - 9th July 2021


"Hello Martha and everyone at Coombe Lodge,

Sam and I have been thinking and talking this past week how we put our sincere thank you into words, but we really aren’t sure this type of thank you is anywhere near enough to tell you how amazing you all are.

We really feel like a part of Coombe Lodge after I think just over 3 years of planning. Firstly we cannot thank you for your consistent support throughout this time. Despite you all going through the pandemic and trying to manage this, you supported us and kept our spirits high from start to finish. You honestly made the whole experience as stress free as possible and we will forever be in your debt for this. We just hope we weren’t too much trouble!

Our day was the most perfect day we could ever imagined, well worth the wait and this was absolutely all down to your commitment and hard work in making this happen. Your attention to detail was incredible and nothing was too much trouble. We really couldn’t imagine anywhere else we would have rather got married and will always thank you for this. A huge thank you to Martha for being there on the day. Martha is honestly one of the most kind and caring people and just having Martha there made us feel so comfortable and at ease. Though I must add, you all work so hard and your commitment to Coombe Lodge is so clear.

We would love to visit you again in the future and will absolutely recommend Coombe Lodge as not only a beautiful venue but also for you as the team who makes the planning and day happen.

Like we say, we really do not feel words are enough but hope we have been able to express our thank you in this email. Please also let us know if you would like us to provide a review elsewhere, or of course use this email as a review in anyway you prefer.

We look forward to the next visit already. Wishing you the best Summer of weddings- take care xx"

Lois & Sam - 23rd June 2021


"Dear Charlotte & The Team - A huge thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day so fantastic. Every detail was so well cared for and we couldn't have asked for better support. You're amazing and what you do - thank you so much! Lots of Love xx

Erica & Martin - 19th June 2021


"Dear Tom & The Coombe Lodge Team,

We just wanted to say thank you for absolutely everything you did in the build up to our wedding and on the day itself. Thank you for all the time you gave us in our meetings, for the affordability you gave us when dealing with our 'requests' and for going above and beyond on the day!

We had so many compliments about the friendly nature of all your staff and one of the reasons Kerry and I want to repeat the day is due to the fact we were made to feel like a Queen and King!

Thank you for all your understanding and kindness in dealing with all our guests, some of whom really took advantage of the open bar!

Thank you once again for your effort, energy and enthusiasm on the day and we genuinely would give anything to experience that day again!

We want to wish all of you the very best in the future and pray that you don't experience another year like 2020!"

Simon & Kerry - 4th June 2021


"Dear Tom, Martha, Clara, Jasmine and the whole team at Coombe Lodge,

We just wanted to write to say a huge thank you for our amazing wedding day at Coombe Lodge!! You guys are absolutely incredible. Even though Covid restrictions were still lingering, you created a day for us that felt as normal and as fun as possible. Coombe Lodge looked gorgeous, the staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. All of the guests commented on how great the day was and how wonderful the staff were. You really went above and beyond and we can't thank you enough!

 We hope the start of the wedding season is going well and fingers crossed things just keep getting better this year!

 Thanks again Xx"

Katie & Rob - 23rd May 2021


"Thank you so much for the most fabulous day. We had the most amazing time and we really can’t thank you and everyone at Coombe Lodge enough for all that you did to make the day perfect for us. 

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the venue and commented on how beautiful it looked. 

We appreciated all you did with the décor, setting up, little touches and ensuring Neil and I had a wonderful time and enjoyed every second.  Once the photos are through we will share some with you! If there is anything outstanding or needed from us then do let us know. We have checked with Annalise and please throw away the tiers. 

Thank you all again,

Mr & Mrs Burch xx"

Laura & Neil - 22nd May 2021


"To Martha, Tom and the rest of the Coombe Lodge Team,

We would like to say a massive thank you for hosting our amazing wedding! We had a wonderful day and you made sure that everything was perfect. You made it so special. (It felt like a normal wedding and you didn’t let Covid get in the way). From our point of view we would definitely encourage any bride and grooms to go with the 30 guest wedding whenever that will return. The day was so relaxed and all of our guests had the best day! 

Martha you were fabulous, from the day we booked right through until we left on Thursday, you were so supportive and nothing was ever too much! Thank you Martha xx 

Tom thank you for always being on the end of the phone to answer our questions and making everything possible, you made everything so easy when it should have been so difficult. Thank you so much! xx 

We would love to join you again for one of your Dine and Stay weekends. Hopefully see you again soon Xxx "

Alex & Lucy (Mr & Mrs Felski) - 23rd September 2020


"We would just like to say a massive thank you to Martha and Charlotte for all their help for our wedding. It was perfect, we can't beleive how quick it went! The food was lovely and the building looked stunning! Everything we dreamed of!

 Thank you again"

Emily & Jacob (Mr & Mrs Dunning) - 7th September 2020 


"My partner James and I stayed at Coombe lodge last Friday and I just wanted to extend our gratitude to all the staff for giving us a lovely evening. Our wedding has sadly been postponed due to the pandemic and our disappointment has been rectified to a great degree by the opportunity to stay and enjoy the venue this weekend.  We felt so lucky to be given this chance and we’re both very pleased by the excellent and attentive service from all the staff throughout our stay. We feel that we have been given the chance to connect more with the venue and are now even more excited for the big day! 

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!" 

 Beth & James


"Tom, Martha & The team - Firstly, I'm so sorry we haven't been in touch sooner, I can't believe a whole month has passed since our wedding day already, to be honest it's been an absolute whirlwind and we're still on a high from our incredible day!

 We just wanted to say a huge huge thank you to Tom & Martha who together managed to not only keep us sane beforehand but worked so hard to make our day better than we could have possibly imagined. From the crushing moment it was announced that weddings were banned back in March, to receptions being delayed with just 2 weeks to go, you have been a constant source of support, reassurance and patience for us and continually went above and beyond to help put our minds at ease during what was an intensely stressful time.

 On the day itself, my husband (still not used to saying that!) and I were absolutely blown away. Whilst we obviously couldn't have the wedding we had planned, what we did have far exceeded any expectations we had and that is without a doubt thanks to the incredible team at Coombe Lodge. Of course, it goes without saying that the house itself and stunning grounds are the main reason we wanted to get married here, but aside from that we were astounded by the incredibly attentive and helpful staff and truly exceptional food. So, although getting married during a pandemic comes with its own sacrifices, we can honestly say you gave us such a special wedding day that nothing felt like we'd compromised and all of our guests were stunned. We are so grateful and can't wait to come back! xx"

Yasmin & Chris (Mr & Mrs Lewis!) - 15th August 2020


"100% recommend Coombe Lodge for a wedding venue! We had our special day on 29.02.2020 (leap year wedding!) and it went perfectly. The team were for everyone's needs, in particularly Tom and Clara who even assisted to the point of helping me lift my dress and veil when trying to get down the stairs!! The food was outstanding, the waiting staff greeted us with big smiles and the willingness to help and the venue was superb. Our guests, and us, loved it!! Hopefully we get to visit you again soon. Love the new Mr and Mrs Powell xxx"

Mr & Mrs Powell - 29th February 2020


"I can’t even begin to thank the team at Coombe Lodge for the most perfect wedding day! We got married there 2 weeks ago today (8 Feb) and the whole day was amazing! Tom in particular has such attention to detail and nothing was a problem for him. He was a huge help and the day ran so smoothly! Everyone at the venue worked tirelessly to give us the best day ever and it truly was, the sun was even shining despite the threat of storm Ciara! The food was outstanding, the service was top class & all the little special touches make this place 10/10.

Thank you again for the best day ever! "

Mr & Mrs Bell - 8th February 2020


"We just wanted to thank the team (especially Jasmine) for ensuring our big day went so smoothly. We have yet to find anyone who didn't thoroughly enjoy themselves, and the number of people who told us how good the meal was (without prompting) is incredible! Oh, and the rooms for those staying over where praised by everyone too!

Jasmine - you have been superb throughout - professional and friendly, making sure everyone and everything was in the right place at the right time.

All the best for the future X"

Mr & Mrs Stroud - 26th January 2020


"To all at Coombe Lodge, 

From the moment we walked into Coombe Lodge, we knew it was the place for us. The venue is stunning, the surroundings are stunning and more importantly the team made an impression. A big shout out to Tom who was so understanding of our millions of questions and who on the day was unbelievable. We are forever grateful to you Tom. 

To the whole team, all of our guests loved every minute of the day and are still talking about the food, the rooms and all of you. So thank you to you all for the best day of our lives!

Love Laurence & Robyn Xx"

Mr & Mrs Reade - 11th January 2020


"Now that we are back to reality, and constantly thinking back to how well our day went, we really wanted to thank all of you! It really was the perfect day in every way and we couldn’t have asked for more. Everything was seamless, and every member of staff were friendly, calm, caring and just amazing. 

Tom and Clara were brilliant at making Jess feel at ease and happy prior to coming down, and allowed us both to enjoy our day to the fullest in every way. Your support, knowledge and the kindness to your care was incredible. The food was fantastic and the service to which it was delivered was perfect on both days. Thank you all so so much, we wish we could do it over and over again! Both of our families have not only continued to talk about the wedding daily but also how polished the service and delivery of our day was. You truly are the best at what you do and we are so grateful. 

Thank you again, wishing you a happy, healthy and successful New Year!"

Mr & Mrs Brown - 22nd December 2019

We've had so many lovely comments from friends and family about the venue, the staff, the food and the whole day so thank you all.

"Dear Martha - Thank you so much for being such an important part of our wedding day! You were a delight to work with before and on the day. Throughout the day you were there just when we needed you and the whole day ran completely seamlessly - I'm sure you had more to do with this than we realise! You and all the Coombe Lodge team were so generous with your time, energy and endless smiles and we had so many comments about the venue and wonderful staff! The whole day was perfect and we definitely enjoyed partying the night away!

All our thanks again - really very much appreciated!

Love Ellie & Steve xx" 

Mr & Mrs Paine - 18th October 2019 


"As you know, Patrick & Sophie (& I) fell in love with Coombe Lodge over a year ago. Not just because of what a stunning location & venue it is but also because of you and your team’s professionalism, attentiveness, polite, courteous, friendly and nothing is too much trouble approach from day 1. 

We can’t thank you, Martha & your team enough for guiding us up to and throughout a fantastic and memorable wedding day. It truly was amazing thanks to all the hard work put in by you & all of your team. We also greatly appreciated that you swapped your day off for us too!

All our guests loved the venue, food & celebrations too but most importantly Patrick & Sophie loved every minute of a truly magical and memorable wedding day - ‘the best day of their lives’. 

Thank you and your team so, so much - we got there in the end and - boy - it was certainly worth it!"

Everything was perfect from the very start through to when we left after breakfast. You all worked so hard, nothing was too much trouble and you were all so professional and friendly. We can't thank you enough for making us feel so special and ensuring our guests had everything they needed. You are a credit to Coombe Lodge and I hope you realise how much we appreciate your hard work and kindness. With lots of love from Trisha & Simon X" 

Mr & Mrs Wainwright - 9th August 2019


"I cannot even begin to say how thankful and happy we are that we had our wedding at Coombe Lodge! From start to finish we have been overwhelmed by their passion, organisation, support and kindness.

Our wedding day was everything that we dreamed it could be. Our guests were amazed with the beauty of Coombe Lodge, the attentiveness off staff and everyone is raving about the food.

Martha, you are incredible! Your ‘above and beyond’ stance on everything, since we began to liaise has left me awe struck. You are too kind and generous and will always have a special place in our hearts. If we could do it all over again, we would do exactly the same. I'm only sad we can't get married there again! Much love to you all, thank you so so much."

Mr & Mrs Thomas - 17th July 2019


"There was never a doubt in my mind I wasn’t not getting married here.. it was convincing my other half that I had to ... as you can imagine it took no convincing at all! The venue speaks for itself, everything about it is beautiful. Every single person we dealt with from start to finish were amazing, nothing was too much hassle.

The food... WOW (that white chocolate mouse, best dessert ever!)
Clara you were amazing! Throughout the whole wedding just popping up making sure everyone/ everything was ok and most importantly we were ok. Even the little things like making sure we had food saved back for us!
Thank you so much Coombe Lodge you really are pros!"

"We had the most prefect wedding day at Coombe Lodge. The staff were amazing, the food was the best we have ever had at a wedding (everyone commented on it) and the scenery and dressing of the venue was second to none. The whole process could not have been more smooth in the run up and everyone was so lovely and helpful. The day was just amazing. You will never regret your wedding being at Coombe Lodge!"

We had several little unique things we wanted and nothing was too much trouble!! 
Thank you for helping to make our special day one to remember."

Mr & Mrs Maundrell - 28th December 2018


"We used Coombe Lodge as our wedding venue and it was one of the best decisions we made. In the build-up to the wedding, the staff, particularly Becca our coordinator, were patient and understanding and took away a lot of the stress involved. On the day they were fully professional and well-organised meaning we didn't have to worry about anything. The transitions between events of the day were seamless, even our slightly out-of-the-normal fire show. Becca kept the whole day running so smoothly that all we had to do was relax and enjoy our big day.

As to the venue itself, it is a perfect venue with great views and a stunning interior. The food was superb and consistently complimented by the guests. Once again a massive thanks"

Mr & Mrs Riley - 6th October 2018


"Couldn’t recommend Coombe Lodge enough. We had the most amazing wedding there yesterday which we will treasure forever. All of the staff were incredibly accommodating, helpful and friendly. Even the kitchen staff went out of their way when we had a cake disaster. Our wedding coordinator, Tom Baxter was incredible through it all and make sure the day ran without a hitch. All of our guests were extremely complimentary with the accommodation, canapés and wedding breakfast. Would highly recommend the sticky toffee pudding! The location and building is breath-taking and no other venue could possible offer the full package like this one. I cannot recommend enough."

Mr & Mrs Hopkin - 6th September 2018


"10 years ago, I attended a wedding at coombe lodge and knew then I wanted to get married there! A few years later, I met my now husband! When we got engaged I told him about coombe lodge, as we drove up the drive on our first viewing, he said let's book it! From our first meeting with Tom, we knew it was the one! Throughout the planning process, Jasmine was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble, always so calm, even when I felt I wasn't! The day itself, despite the rain was perfect in every way! The food was delicious and we received many compliments on the venue itself and the food specifically. The staff were always there but never in our faces, it ran so smoothly and we had the most perfect day!

Coombe lodge made our dreams come true, we couldn't have asked for anything better!"

Mr & Mrs Lester - 26th August 2018


"The gorgeous setting & simplistic decor was the perfect starting point & with a few floral arrangements & delicate decorations it was the perfect wedding venue! The team are incredible, their presence was subtle yet so attentive on the day. The day ran so smoothly & it really was Because of the team. The service was outstanding not only to us but to all of our guests. The catering is amazing with so many options. The grounds & rooms are beautiful. This place has everything you need under 1 roof!" - 27th May 2018


"We had the most beautiful wedding day at Coombe Lodge. All the help we received beforehand was amazing and they continued their support throughout the day as well. Lots of the guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been too, mainly because of the venue. The food was outstanding and the service was great. The bar was reasonable and the inside was decorated beautifully." - 15th June 2018


"Coombe Lodge were brilliant from start to finish. We had a lovely experience when we first visited being shown around and it has been the same ever since. They are very responsive to questions about the big day and no detail is too small. On the day all the staff were amazing at ensuring everything ran smoothly behind the scenes without us even knowing they were really there! They helped make our day absolutely perfect despite it pouring with rain I would not change a thing." - 10th February 2018


"Coombe lodge offered everything we dreamed for our wedding, as soon as we drove in we knew it was ‘the one’. Staff couldn’t do enough for us & always replies promptly and thoroughly when I emailed with queries. The venue has such picturesque surroundings and inside the venue is equally amazing. We were lucky enough to get married outside and it was amazing. Our wedding day was nothing short of perfect & we can’t thank coombe lodge enough for those memories." - 5th July 2018


"I could not be happier with how our day went. The venue was perfect, the photos are amazing, the service was top quality. I would recommend the staff and the venue to anyone. Perfect day." - 21st April 2018


"We held our wedding at Coombe Lodge and would not be able to recommend them enough. Everything went so smoothly and we were able to actually focus on enjoying the day as all the staff managed everything from the suppliers arrival, getting guests in the correct place and transition between ceremony, breakfast and evening reception. The staff couldn’t have done more to assist our guests either. It was the perfect venue."
