Our daughter's wedding here in mid April was fabulous! The hotel provided us with a private dining room on the Friday night, which was a lovely way to begin the celebrations. We choose to have exclusive use of Deer Park for the Saturday of the wedding and this proved to be an excellent choice and well worth the money. The house and grounds are a beautiful setting for a wedding and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the experience, with the Civil Ceremony in the house and a Hand-fasting in the grounds. Despite the marquee looking a little tired, it decorated up beautifully and gave ample room for 90 guests and a good dance floor in the evening. The food provided for the afternoon tea and the wedding breakfast was excellent and catered well for our daughter's dairy intolerance. Similarly the cheese and pasties,which appeared late evening, were delicious.
All guests seemed to rate their rooms and ours (Honeysuckle) was particularly comfortable. We could not fault the staff, with Sophie and Stuart being particularly attentive.
The only minor negatives were that some of the windows in the bedrooms were painted closed, some guests complained of quirky showers and maybe the marquee needs a revamp. Also bill paying on the Sunday was a little disorganised, but in fairness to Deer Park they dealt with this in a very generous way. However we would recommend sorting as much bill paying as possible in advance.
Overall it was a glorious celebration in a beautiful setting - thank you Deer Park!
