We knew from the moment we first visited Hockering House that it was the place we wanted to get married, so much so we didn’t even look anywhere else as we knew it wouldn’t compare!
It is just such a beautiful and secluded place and has such a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere you just can’t help falling in love with it.
Sam made us feel at ease from the moment we met her, she has a lovely enthusiasm about her and is just as excited about planning your day as you are.
She is so knowledgable and helpful, and really does listen to you. She looks after your needs, she understands how important your day is to you and does everything she can to help you realise your vision.
She allowed us to use the venue like a blank canvas so you can really have a day that is totally unique to you as a couple. She also put us in touch with suppliers that we could trust and rely on.
Because there is only 1 wedding per week here you can spend more time decorating your marquee. We got married on the Saturday and spent a full 2 days previous to this on site. This time was invaluable especially when you had as much stuff as we did! Tissue paper Pom Pom’s take an awfully long time to fluff and tie to 130 chairs!!
Our guests really were blown away by Hockering House some commenting that it was the best wedding venue they had ever been to! Some of the Highlights included Bill’s ices ice cream van & Christophe’s crepe van which were both recommended suppliers of Sam’s, they went down a storm with our guests!
I really feel that none of the magic of our wedding would of been possible without Sam’s guidance and undivided attention to detail. Her and her family are so friendly and helpful and were always checking if there was anything we needed and offering help. I only have one regret which was not using Sam for our on the day co-ordination as it would of taken a lot of the pressure off of us on the day, If you are in 2 minds I would definitely recommend having Sam’s invaluable expert help to make everything runs smoothly on the day!
In conclusion we both want to say a massive thank you to Sam and all her family at Hockering House it really is the most beautiful setting to get married in not a day goes by that I don’t want to rewind and do it all over again! You really gave us the most perfect day we will treasure forever. Emma & Ian May 2016
