Client Testimonials

John and Holly’s wedding was such a special day, due in no small part to the beautiful location at Delbury Hall. John (senior) and I want to thank you for being so helpful and welcoming to us all before and during the event. We will have such lovely memories of the day and even the weather managed to more or less behave itself !! With our very best wishes for the future of your business at Delbury which is bound to continue to flourish, and we wish happiness and good health to you and your charming wife who was also so kind and welcoming to everyone. Also a big thank you to Ludlow Catering - everyone enjoyed the food and good service you provided.

Thank you so much for all your family and team offered our son Martin and Roxanne last weekend. We were most impressed with their choice of venue and how you accommodated their requests throughout. It all made for a wonderful day which will leave us with many happy memories.
Client: Roxanne & Martin
Dear Patrick, Now that the dust has settled, I wanted to write to say thank you again to you and all at Delbury for helping to make the wedding day of Nicola and Tony so successful. It is a most glorious venue and the organisation of the day was made so much easier by the relaxed efficiency of everyone at Delbury. It was a great help to know that everything was taken care of and all our guests were hugely impressed. We've had many compliments from so many people that I wanted you to know your fame will now spread across the US! The accommodation and the stables breakfast room were just right. Rest assured that if we're ever asked to make recommendations in future Delbury will be top of our list (indeed, I'm not sure we'd even think it necessary to add any alternatives!). Thank you once more. With very best wishes, Stephen (Nicola's father)
Client: Nicola & Anthony
From our first visit to Delbury Hall, we were blown away by the beautiful gardens, The Coach House and most of all by the friendly and laid back feel of the place. Every single member of staff was approachable, professional and went out of their way to ensure that we had the most wonderful experience getting married there. We still continue to receive positive comments from our friends and family. It was the best day ever and we will treasure it forever. Thank you so much for everything.
Client: Anjali & Jo
Hello Patrick, I am emailing to say thank you for everything. Our wedding two weeks ago was exactly how we wanted it to be and that is thanks to your beautiful venue. The whole process and actual day itself was incredibly relaxed and personal because we chose Delbury Hall rather than a venue which produces multiple identical weddings on a weekly basis. Your help was very much appreciated and please thank Michelle who went above and beyond even buying my Dad green tea bags to have at breakfast the day after the wedding! Your wedding breakfast room is a beautiful addition, congratulations. I wish you every success in the future and we'll surely be back to visit. Many thanks

It has been some time since our lovely wedding at Delbury in August. We really had the most perfect day, so many people commented on the gorgeous venue and the stunning setting. The day was perfect better than we ever imagined. Ludlow Catering were also excellent they ensured a smooth running of the entire day, which went incredibly well given the large numbers we had at our day and my desire for an outdoor wedding with our English weather. The food was amazing and the service was exceptional. I just wanted to thank you again.

Client: Gemma & Neil | November 2013
Just to say thank you so much for letting us use your venue on Saturday 13th July 2013; we really did have the best day of our lives so far and it was the perfect backdrop to our big day. We had so many amazing comments about the wedding and the venue. Comments on how it was like 'something out of pride and prejudice!' which is a big compliment. It really did have everything that we would have wanted and more. The garden games you allowed us to put out went down a storm in the sunshine. We don't really know how to thank you any more, other than advising you to keep doing what you are doing to allow other couples to enjoy their big day as much as we did! To be honest we didn't want to leave the next day for the dream to be over!
Client: Beth & David
My daughter Rosie and her fiancé, Dan, held their wedding at the Coach House on Thursday 30th May 2013. We are so glad that we booked this venue. Everybody at Delbury was extremely helpful allowing us plenty of time to set up. Everywhere was very clean, the lawns were neat and tidy and the lake and swans made the perfect backdrop for photographs. Willem and Ludlow Catering were excellent. The whole day was fabulous and everybody commented on the relaxed atmosphere. Thank you so much, it really was one of the best days of our lives.
Client: Tracey Cotterill
Can I say what a fantastic weekend we had at Delbury, in fact the whole process has been so simple and easy going with both you and Willem at the helm. Delbury really is the perfect venue, we loved it immediately and was reaffirmed this yesterday by the reaction of the guests to the venue. Thank you so much for all your help. If you would like some pictures of the outside ceremony for your website then we would be happy to send them along when they come through.
Client: Michala & Jonathan
Our daughter Emma married Steve at Delbury Hall last month and we would like to let you know what a fantastic day everyone had. There were many positive comments from the guests. The Coach House is a wonderful venue and your house and gardens are so beautiful, all of which helped to make a perfect wedding day. Emma fell in love with the place on her first visit, and your relaxed and accommodating attitude certainly helped them both with planning the big day. Ludlow Catering provided a wonderful service both with the running of the day and their excellent food, and are the perfect compliment to Delbury Hall. Thank you again.
Client: David & Gina
Our daughter Elly was married at Diddlebury Church followed by the wedding reception with you at Delbury Hall last Saturday. We just wanted to say very many thanks to you and your staff for providing such a superb venue.The Coach House provided a truly beautiful setting for the reception and those guests who stayed enjoyed comfortable and beautifully furnished rooms. Many of our guests were very complimentary too about your superbly landscaped grounds which provided such a lovely setting. It was kind of you to allow us to use your main hall for photographs which was very much appreciated by Elly and Dave. They are away in Paris for a few days but we are sure that they will be in touch before too long,hopefully with some photographs.
Client: Bill & Iola
A very big thank you for making my daughter Charlene and her new husband, Oscar, a wonderful day to remember.

Once again, thank you for the wonderful memories we will treasure forever.
Client: Keith & Jan

Client: Sally & Alistair | October 2013
Last Saturday 21st September 2013, I attended the wedding and reception of my nephew at your hall. From the moment I arrived and until I left at 11 pm, I was utterly impressed with the organisation of Ludlow Catering, the staff, the food and the venue. In truth, it was probably the best organised wedding I have ever attended. Your staff were always on hand but never intrusive, the food, which was excellent, was served not only efficiently and with a smile...but more importantly, well presented and hot! Even the disco (which is normally something I dread) was discreetly set up...allowed those who wished to “throw some shapes “ ( which I believe is a la mode expression) to dance..but never overwhelmed those who wished to just drink and talk. I am sure my sister and brother-in-law, my nephew and his new bride, have already thanked you for making the day special. But I am a grumpy journalist...I have endured the awful, the mediocre and best forgotten weddings...sometimes you just have to stand up and applaud. Thank you
Client: Paul
Words cannot express how thankful we both are that you allowed us to have our wedding at Delbury Hall in October 2013. It's an unbelievably amazing venue that we had so many compliments about. It fitted us and our slightly different wedding perfectly, a wonderful English summers day in October. You and Michelle are fantastic to deal with and couldn't have made things more easy, unstressful and a delight. Nothing was too much trouble. Delbury Hall is the kind of venue brides dream about and yourselves and the booking process are the bonus icing on the cake. Thank you for making our day as perfect as it was
Client: Ellen & Paul
We would both like to thank you very much for letting us use Delbury Hall as the venue for our wedding reception. It was perfect and just what we wanted. Everyone has commented on how beautiful the setting was. We would also like to thank you personally for being such a pleasure to deal with. Anything to do with weddings seems to send some people into an absolute spin but you always remained calm, professional and very accommodating. We were adamant from the start that we did not want to hold our wedding reception in a hotel. Finding Delbury was a treat. It was so lovely to wake up on the day after the wedding and have the calm surrounding of Delbury as opposed to a packed breakfast room in a hotel.So thank you again. You have provided us with many happy memories for the future. -
Client: Jane & Matthew
We just wanted to express our deepest gratitude for helping to make our wedding at Delbury Hall one of the happiest days of our lives. Within our family there have been 6 weddings in the last 2 years, one of which was in Venice and another in South Africa, and all our guests have commented on how fabulous the venue was, and how much they enjoyed a proper Shropshire wedding! Your help and guidance throughout not only the day but the weeks and months of planning was greatly appreciated.
Client: Tracy & Seb
Thank you so much for allowing us to have our wedding at Delbury Hall. The setting was just perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better day! Your help and service was exceptional. I hope we didn't make too much noise and mess! We have had so many compliments about the day, many of which saying it was the best wedding that they had been to - so thank you again.
Client: Caroline & Graham
We keep getting letters saying how much people enjoyed the lovely setting at Delbury and complimenting us for finding such a perfect place for a wedding. Thank you so much for being so helpful, especially when we had to rearrange the date. Words can't do justice to your venue.
Client: Alison and Graham
Just a line to say a huge thank you for letting us share Delbury Hall and The Coach House for our weddings on July 23rd. It was a wonderful day and all our family and friends thought the venue was fabulous. From our initial meeting you were so helpful and accommodating which made it so much more relaxed for us doing the preparatory 'things'. Our sincere thanks to Andy too for all his work and help. Delbury Hall and Diddlebury Church have a special place in our affections. Thanks again.
Client: Shirley & Nick and Rachel & Ross
Thank you for allowing us to hold our wedding at such a stunning venue. So many of the guests commented on Delbury and our wedding photos look spectacular. The room was lovely and waking up to the views and sunshine was memorable. Thank you again for your role in making our day perfect.
Client: Claudia & Mark
We are writing to express our sincere thanks for all your support and organisation before, during and after the wedding of our daughter Jane to Andrew on 16 August. Despite the vicissitudes of the weather on that day, the wedding reception was very successful and enjoyed by all who attended. We were complimented on our choice of venue by so many of the guests. Jane and Andy would also like to thank you for all your time and patience in the organisation of the event and your availability in the weeks prior to it. We will be recommending Delbury to our friends and acquaintances.
Client: Colin & Celia
We fell in love with Delbury the minute we arrived on our first visit, we stopped venue hunting immediately. Our wedding day was made so special by having such a beautiful place to celebrate what was the best day of our lives. Delbury's light and airy space meant that we were unaware of the rather rainy day outside and when it did dry up we had the picturesque grounds as well. Patrick and Lucinda were a delight to deal with throughout and made us feel completely comfortable in their home. A wonderful day, a stunning venue - a huge thank you.
Client: Clare & Shane
Thank you very much for the use of the Coach House and Stables on Saturday. We had an absolutely perfect day - we loved Delbury as soon as we saw it but even in our wildest dreams did not expect it to be so wonderful. The grounds were beautiful and the guests were absolutely bowled over with the venue and setting. Our guests and we enjoyed every minute of it and 'best wedding we've ever been to' has been a popular quote.
Client: Kerry
Delbury provided a beautiful venue for our wedding. It offered us many attractive views and areas, as well as modern and well designed facilities that helped everything run perfectly on the day. We researched a number of venues, and Delbury was the best - as well as extremely competitively priced. We received so many comments from our guests on how beautiful the grounds were. A striking aspect of Delbury as a wedding venue was the abundance of attractive areas on site. As well as providing many relaxing environments for our guests to enjoy themselves, it also offered a variety of locations for photographs, without requiring our bridal party to move far from their guests. The mezzanine floor and the courtyard offered us extra areas to use for food service and dancing, which meant that we were able to have our ceremony, photographs, reception and our accommodation all on site, without anything being compromised. Sarah and I can throroughly recommend Delbury Hall.
Client: Sarah & Fraser
We had an absolutely wonderful wedding weekend at Delbury despite having only had a few months to plan the entire thing! Everyone was so helpful throughout the planning process and having the accommodation on site was lovely as we were able to arrive with our families the night before and just relax. The Coach House was big enough to accommodate our guests for both the ceremony and reception without feeling at all cramped, and the gardens made a lovely backdrop for our pictures - with the white swans and doves giving an especially romantic touch. We had a great time and I would wholeheartedly recommend this venue.
Client: Sally & Luke
Patrick met us and showed us around, he was very friendly and helpful and a lovely man. We absolutely loved The Coach House, amazing! It's everything we are looking for.........informal yet classy and stylish, stunning setting and grounds, lovely courtyard area for our use, an excellent all-inclusive facility with the kitchens and mezzanine floor. A huge added bonus is the accommodation available right next to the ceremony/reception venue.
Client: Ben & Heidi
What a wonderful venue for a wedding. Patrick was there to greet us from day one, a charming man, keen to assist in all our requests. The Coach House is stunning, beautifully laid out with superb kitchens to enable everything to be prepared on site. The Stables were wonderful accommodation allowing us to arrive on the Friday and leave on the Sunday, so making it a superb weekend wedding venue. You will not fail to have a magic day at Delbury Hall.
Client: Vicki & Nick
We had such a fantastic wedding at Delbury Hall. We really struggled to find just the right venue and once we had visited and met Patrick we just knew that was the ideal place. All our guests felt as relaxed as we did on the day and loved spending time in the beautiful surroundings. We would both highly recommend getting married here. You just couldn't ask for a more perfect place.
Client: Anna & Richard
Thank you for letting us use Delbury Hall's Coach House and grounds on 28th July. It provided us with the perfect setting for our wedding day. We have had such a lot of glowing feedback from our guests about how beautiful the location was. We were also delighted with your suggestion of using Chris and Sue Hinks, whose catering was second to none. All in all, we would not have changed a thing - even the weather!?
Client: Emily & Tom
Thank you so much for the use of Delbury Hall for Lindsay and Bob's wedding. We were asked how we found Delbury by so many people. Everyone enjoyed the gardens and the atmosphere of Delbury. Thank you also for the recommendations after our difficulties with catering and florist. Sarah Jane provided exactly what we wanted and Ludlow Catering went beyond our expectations on both of our days. Willem has the knack of being available without being obtrusive. I hope we didn't outstay our time but everyone felt so relaxed and comfortable sharing your home! I am sure many brides will enjoy Delbury in future - Lindsay was certain that she had made the right choice. Very best wishes.
Client: Steve & Anne, Lindsay & Bob
I enclose two photos which certainly emphasise what an amazing venue you have. Thank you so much - please pass on our thanks to your team. They are fantastic and do a great job. It was a perfect day, following on from a very stress-free build up!
Client: Claire & Derek, Sam & Faris
Back from honeymoon and into work today so not sure how long the happy post-wedding glow will last but as it was such an amazing day I'm hoping it will keep making me smile for sometime to come! Thanks for helping to make our day such a fabulous one, the venue is really special and I hope many more couples enjoy their big day as much as we did. All our guests had a great time too!
Client: Helen & Simon
Just a quick note to say thanks so much for letting us use Delbury for our wedding reception the other week and for being so flexible regarding the accommodation etc. We had such a lovely, lovely day. The venue was perfect and we had so many people confirming that. Thanks again.
Client: Anna & Francisco
Zubin and I want to thank you for helping to make our wedding day so wonderful. The Coach House was just what we were looking for - an empty and yet beautiful building that we could put our own stamp on. The weather was on our side, too, which meant that we could make use of the gorgeous grounds. I know many of the guests strolled rouind the lake and admired the views - and the ducks! All in all, the day was perfect.
Client: Zubin & Carys
Paul and I would like to thank you for allowing us and our guests to have the use of The Coach House and the stunning grounds of Delbury Hall for our wedding last Saturday. It was the most perfect day, the weather was amazing and the location was commented on as being the most perfect in Shropshire which I have to agree on! We couldn't have chosen a more wonderful venue to celebrate our perfect day. Can I also thank Michelle for her emails and attention to detail. She was always so amiable and nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble for her....combined with a winning smile. What an asset she is!! Thank you all for everything.
Client: Paul & Kate Gray
I just wanted to write a few lines to thank you so much for letting us have our wedding at Delbury Hall. I loved it the first time I sawe it (online!). Everbody you recommended to us were fab and we were 100% happy with everything. You were always that with a quick reply to my endless emails and always happy to help. Everybody thought the setting was beautiful and I wish I could do it all over again. I watched my DVD last night and it brought it all back to me and made me even happier to see it as all our guests did. I would recommend The Coach House and Delbury Hall, and all the suppliers, to anyone! I hope you continue to have lots of weddings and parties and thank you all once more for everything
Client: Carly & Tom
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping to make our wedding day perfect. Delbury is the most beautiful location to get married and a stunning backdrop in all our photos. We are also grateful that you arranged sunshine for us! We have had so many positive comments about the venue and feel honoured to have spent time at your home. We chose Delbury as we hoped it would be a rural and relaxed retreat and that's exactly what it was.
Client: Cath & Kev
