My guests praised how beautiful it was
The location of the venue itself was extremely beautiful and picturesque. My guests praised how beautiful it was. The wedding coordinators at the venue were extremely helpful in answering all my queries during the process. They would allow me to visit the venue at any time and also allowed me to leave some decor in storage a few days before the wedding

We intend to recommend Gilwell Park
Thank you so much for all your help and advice in the run up to our big day. A huge thank you to Christine and all the staff who were there on the day and helped things run so smoothly and effortlessly. Our guests had nothing but praise for all the staff. Especially my Dad who nipped out part way through our meal to thank Christine and leave a huge tip for all the staff!! The staff on the day helped the wedding and reception run perfectly. From setting up the Swan Centre to bringing our drinks reception outside as the sun came out. We especially want to thank the serving staff and bar staff from the day who worked really hard serving our food, keeping our water jugs topped up and generally looking after Colin and I as well as all our guests. We have received great feedback on the food. Guests thought the lamb shank was delicious and were really impressed with the quality and presentation. The same was said for our evening buffet. Thank you to all the chefs and catering staff. We appreciated all your efforts. We intend to recommend Gilwell Park if ever ask about venues for weddings.

Our day was nothing but magical
Our day was nothing but magical. It was so lovely and all our guests complimented your venue. I believe there is a lot of interest in my family using your services in the near future. We had such an awesome day, the girl at reception (AM) was exceedingly helpful. She organised my bridal changing room so quickly and efficiently. In the evening the catering staff were amazing.
