Our day was amazing.  All staff were very helpful and friendly.  All our guests commented on how lovely the venue is and how professional and helpful the staff are.  We loved the venue as soon as we drove up to the house and fell in love with the whole place. Being able to have our family stay over night join us for breakfast was so special for us.  Thank you to everyone.

Danni and John Cooves – 23rd August 2015

Magical day, we were made to feel very special, nothing was to much trouble for staff who created a relaxed atmosphere whilst attending to every detail of our daughter and new son in law’s wedding.  A massive thank you.

19th June 2015

I wanted to send an email on behalf of all the staff and students at Braintree Sixth Form who attended our leavers’ event with you on Monday 29th June. It was a fantastic evening which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.

 Thank you very much for the organisation and everything you did preceding the event it was all excellent and made things very easy for us.

 The booking process and information was excellent as was the quality of food and staff help on the evening. The Fennes DJ was good and the music selection for our students was good (an improvement on last year) and they did not leave the dance floor!

 Thank you again for an excellent evening. We will be looking to book again next year!

 Kind regards, Alex Brewis-Shephard

This is just a really big thank you to all the staff who were working at Fennes on 31st May 2015, the day of our daughter got married.

The whole day was absolutely fantastic, the venue was beautiful and every single member of staff worked so hard to make it a day they will never forget.

We certainly will be recommending the Fennes to other coupes looking for a wedding venue.

 

Big Thank you – 31st May 2015

Mr and Mrs Campkin | 23rd April 2015

Our Wedding and Event Manager was such a lovely lady, she kept letting us know what was happening throughout the day, even the day before when we came to drop stuff off she had arranged a member of Fennes team to help us.  A big thank you! The food was lovely and we had great positive feedback from everyone regarding the venue.  The weather was great adding to this gorgeous venue, just finished it off.

Mr and Mrs Matthews – 16th March 2015

Fennes provided us excellent service right through from enquiring about booking up until we were married and finishing our stay there.  Our day was truly magical and everyone at the stunning venue helped towards making that possible.  The Fennes team were friendly and very helpful.  We would recommend the Fennes to anyone for their special day.

James and Melissa – 12th March 2015

Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish, everything about this venue is totally stress free.  Food was exceptional and so many guests said it was the best wedding they had been too and are still talking abut the food and venue even now!

Mr and Mrs Macefield – 14th January 2015

Our Wedding and Event Manager was all we expected and a million times more, she made sure we were completely at ease from start to finish.

Being a same sex couple, we came across lots of venues who were able to do same sex marriages but we were made to feel different until we came across Fennes.  We came to view Fennes on an open evening 18 months before we got married and we fell in love, not just with the beautiful venue but with the way there was no hard sell, no badgering or pressure.  For this very reason we booked our wedding a few weeks later.

On our big day we couldn’t of asked more, the little touches made all the difference to us.

We cannot thank everyone enough and along with those special little touches gave us the most magical day of our lives.

We just wanted to write to say thank you to all the staff who truly made our day.

Samantha and Kelly Knight – 19th March 2015
Helen and Jim Wright- February 2015

Jade, 17th January 2015

Extremely happy with Fennes from the initial enquiry until the day after the wedding.  Fennes made it easy for us in terms of planning, being flexible and accommodating, putting our needs first.  I cannot fault anything, thank you for making our big day extra special and one we will never forget.

Kevin and Debi, 12th January 2015

Rebecca Karsa – June 2014

Everything was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. The wedding and events manager was so helpful and friendly. She made us all feel relaxed. The food was outstanding – I have guests asking for the recipe for our parsnip soup. Wish we could do it all over again.

Cassie and Daniel, 23rd May 2014

We both wanted to thank you personally for playing a special part in making our wedding day so perfect. We could not have asked for more or would change a thing about the whole day, your help and guidance was greatly appreciated. Would you also pass our thanks onto the whole staff who worked on the day, they were extremely helpful and polite. So many people have thanked us for a lovely time and many commented on now great all the food was, and all served nice and hot. We will always remember a truly wonderful day.

Cassie and Dan – Married May 2014

Now we’ve had a chance to catch our breath; Alison and I just wanted to pass on our thanks to you for all your help and support on Monday and over all the preparation. The day went wonderfully for everyone involved and that was due in no small measure to you personally. Please also pass on our thanks to everyone on your team involved in the day, including those behind the scenes. I realise that, to run things on this scale (and frequency), it must be run like a “military operation” but never for one second did anyone on the Fennes team make any of us feel anything less than special or that it was “just another job”. From the moment we arrived to drop Jenna off, to the point we drove away on Tuesday morning, every single person we had any contact with did a wonderful job. The Fennes can be rightfully proud of all it’s staff and you in particular.

Steve Lenton – April 2014

Would just like to thank you for assisting us in making the day run smoothly. I felt like it was a huge dream come true and could not have asked for it to have run better! We have had so much great feedback! We have also been asked to feature our wedding in Essex wedding magazine.

Gemma and Luke – April 2014

We had a wonderful time. We found our Wedding and Event Manager and her team extremely accommodating and helpful. She personally helped us feel at ease and made the day fit together wonderfully. Thank you truly for your help and making the day unforgettable.

Mr and Mrs Day – Married April 2014

We had an amazing day. Thank you to all the staff for making the day so perfect. All of our guests raved about the venue, the banqueting hall in the evening was a big surprise for them, they didn’t think the place was that BIG! We were so impressed by the food too, great canapes and gorgeous wedding breakfast, plus things we were not expecting like having our bath run in the Bridal Cottage with champagne, cheese and slice of our wedding cake waiting for us. We did not want the day to end. We need to persuade our friends to get married here so we can come back!

Ed and Nicky – Married April 2014

Fennes is a gorgeous wedding venue and we wanted to get married here from our first viewing. From the initial enquiry to the wedding day Fennes staff were amazing and so helpful wherever possible. Our wedding day was better than we could have ever imagined and this was due to the venue and brilliant wedding and events manager! What a lovely lady- thank you! The food was also lovely, the Fennes DJ was great and the bridal cottage superb. Thank you for making our wedding day one to remember.

Mr and Mrs Schultz, 18th March 2014

We had the most amazing day and night. Everything was above our expectations, the staff were amazing and you all should be very proud of yourselves and what you do. We are a very, very happy new husband and wife. Our Wedding and Events Manager and her team are amazing.

Mr and Mrs Wilson – Married March 2014

Excellent, professional service received from start to finish. On the day i felt our Wedding Planner provided a seamless service, as did the other Fennes staff. We could not fault anything, they were brilliant. Many thanks again from Noel & Lisa. Oh and an extra special thanks to the evening manager – she was superb! What an asset to your organisation.
