“I just wanted to send a message to say a huge thank you for all your hard work to make our wedding so special. You were AMAZING! We felt like we were in such safe hands and your calm and unflappable approach to everything was really appreciated. Your fantastic eye for detail right to packing everything up so carefully and considerately didn't go unnoticed - so a huge thank you. You honestly made such a difference to our day.”
“We feel so very lucky to have found Henry Moore as a venue. It's such a beautiful and special place, full of natural, architectural and artistic beauty. Jules, Clare and the team there went out of their way from beginning to end to give us our dream wedding - helping us with all the planning and giving us the benefit of their deep experience. Because they do only a certain amount of weddings every year, we felt absolutely special to them as opposed to being in some wedding factory... A side benefit was that there are loads of wonderful small local suppliers (caterers, cake, flowers, etc) in the vicinity - all used to working at this beautiful historic location - and all at prices that pale compared to London. We had guests from all over the world and everyone just raved about the setting and the sophistication of the event. Just the perfect venue!”
“A huge thank you from everything you did to make Sophie and Steve's wedding such a wonderful occasion. From the moment we met you on the Friday, we know we were in safe hands. You made us feel so welcome and your attention to detail was amazing. It certainly helped us relax and just enjoy all the celebrations know you have everything in hand. we realise what long days you work when you have a wedding to coordinate. At no time did you stop smiling and making us feel special. Sophie and Steve were so happy and relaxed on their special day. Everything went smoothly and you did all you had to do with the minimum of fuss. You were always there but never intrusive - quite a skill! We can't thank you enough for helping to create many special memories. ”
“What a brilliant venue to celebrate a wedding. Henry Moore Studios & Gardens offer an incredible setting that can be easily dressed and adapted to suit the style of your wedding. Jules and her staff were so welcoming, helpful and accommodating, not just during the planning stages and the day of our wedding, but they got stuck in the day before to help us dress the barn and outside areas to our liking - we had a lot of handmade elements to decorate the space (sorry, Jules!) but nothing was too much trouble for them. We are big fans of Henry Moore's work, so being able to get so close to his sculptures for our photos was brilliant. It is the perfect venue for a perfect day. ”
“Jules, Sarah and the rest of the Henry Moore Team couldn't have done anymore for us. We booked our wedding a while ago when the world was 'normal' and never envisaged the impact that Covid19 would cause. However I was in regular contact with Jules who was reassuring and extremely friendly throughout the time leading up to our wedding ceremony (probably more than I was in contact with other people!!). We regularly talked about possibilities and changes but remained hopeful that our wedding could go ahead; which it did! The day came and (following some other difficulties such as my wedding ring being stolen!) the day was absolutely fantastic. Jules and Sarah made us feel relaxed and we could fully trust them that everything would go smoothly. The weather was beautiful which brought the best out of the stunning venue. We had the most amazing day despite the restrictions and difficulties the world was facing and cannot thank Jules, Sarah and our friends and family enough ”
“Weddings might inherently be a great day but what made it the most special day of our lives was down to the unique, beautiful Henry Moore venue as well as all the support Jules, Sarah and the team gave to us. Having a mixture of cultures in our wedding, we had a few things outside the norm but as mentioned, the support was unwavering and they catered to us amazingly. I couldn't recommend this venue and Jules/Sarah, highly enough. They also gave recommendations for photographers and so forth, which proved to be fantastic and are things we will cherish forever. ”
“Paul and I can’t thank you and Sarah enough for your efforts. We can honestly say that we truly had the best day of our lives and it wouldn’t have been possible without you! You and your team worked so incredibly hard and my whole family absolutely loved you guys! Your attention to detail was incredible and even just having you there counting everyone in whilst walking down the aisle was so special!!! I don’t think I could have done it without you! ”
“The whole occasion went perfectly. All our guests loved the venue itself, the room looked beautiful and worked just right for our small gathering, the gardens lovely and even the weather behaved right on cue - with a brief refreshing shower just as we distributed the umbrellas ( I don't know how you managed to organise that one!)”
“From the very first phone call to the wedding day itself, Jules and her team were supportive, helpful and integral to planning and managing our big day. They took on board what we wanted and chipped in with their own ideas to create a celebration that was personal to us. The sixteenth century barn, tipi and gardens made for a wonderful backdrop to our eating, drinking and partying and the whole evening passed without a glitch thanks to the team's meticulous organisation. We could not be more grateful for all they did for us!”
