Some kind words from some of our previous wedding couples

Anika & Haidar 21.09.2019

Thank you so so much for allowing us to have the most wonderful day ever. Mount Ephraim was truly the most amazing venue ever and you have been so supportive and accommodating. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you and we just wanted to say a massive thank you.


The Dallinsons 27.08.2019

“We can not recommend this venue enough! We had the best wedding and the venue is just simply stunning. The staff here are fabulous! The venue was very accommodating of our wants and needs before the wedding and always had an open dialogue form the start. Lucy was just fantastic and so was the accommodation. She truly went above and beyond, drying off our bouncy castle with towels so that we could use it for an hour (really not her job), allowing us to decorate the day before the wedding. Sadly, we had a rainy wedding but you really wouldn’t have know. The grounds make this venue but it’s just as fabulous in the rain if not more so. Lucy was there from the morning of our wedding until it had finished. The guests were blown away with what an amazing venue it was! If we could hire it every day for our wedding we would. This venue and the staff made our day truly magical. The Dallisons xx “


Isobel & Ashley 28.06.2019

You made our day so easy and sorted everything. It wouldn’t have ran so smoothly if you weren’t there. We are so thankful for everything you did and how kind you were to us. We cannot thank you enough!


Leslie & Lee 15.06.2019

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for letting us have our wedding at your incredible venue. Everything went way beyond our expectations and every single member of the staff was amazing with us and our guests.

We thought the gardens were absolutely gorgeous – very much delighted our photographer Liam who was like a kid at Christmas – and really, we couldn’t have dreamed of a better setting.


Lauren & Dale 25.05.2019

It really is difficult to find the words to thank Mount Ephraim for what was the most special day of our lives so far. From the planning stage and pre-wedding anxiety to leaving the venue as newly weds, Lucy and her team were there to support us and ensure our day was just as we’d imagined it would be. The venue itself is absolutely stunning (have you seen that staircase?) and being able to enjoy the day in the privacy of the main house and gardens was an extra bonus! The garden wing was the perfect size for our bridal party and we were able to enjoy a delicious breakfast together in the tea rooms the next day. I only wish we could do it all again!


Ella & Charlie 18.05.2019

A huge thank you from us for all you did for our wedding. We had a truly wonderful day, and very much appreciate your relaxed, kind, accommodating and supportive approach. We had so many comments about how perfect the venue was, and we totally agree.


Emma & Matt 01.09.2018

We had our wedding reception in Mount Ephraim and we had the most incredible day! Having access to the house the day before and the day after make the whole process so easy for us and it made us feel like we were home for the weekend. Gosia was amazing during the planning – no question or request was too crazy or too much trouble. We were encouraged to put our own stamp on the day and this made our wedding feel so personal. But at the same time, the venue is stunning so you really don’t need to do a lot to make it look magical! We can’t thank Mount Ephraim enough.


Chris & Duncan 21.07.2018

We got married at Mount Ephraim and are full of gratitude for a beautiful & magical wedding which would not have been possible without the breath taking beauty and charm of the Mount Ephraim house and gardens. We fell in love with the gardens from the first moment we visited – it really holds a sacred place in our hearts – and we just feel so privileged to have been able to get married there. A massive thank you to the Dawes family and team (Gosia really does make the whole process seamless!) for the most perfect day we could ever have imagined…


Guy & Caroline               31.05.2018

What a fantastic day at a wonderful venue with amazing organisation. Everything worked seamlessly with people on hand to ensure all went well without intruding on the day. We could not be happier with the service we received. Thanks especially to Lucy for all her efforts. The small touches make such a difference. We could not recommend this venue more. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts. Guy and Caz.


Graham & Joanna 12.4.2018

Gosia many, many thanks for all you have done for us before and on the day. You were always there for us and ensured the day ran like clockwork. Our day was absolutely magical and a day we will never forget, and we just wanted to thank you for helping to make it so. Mount Ephraim is a very special place for us, which we plan to visit regularly. Once again you were simply wonderful!

Rebecca & Christopher 10.06.2017

Our event co-ordinator Gosia is fantastic at her job!! She is attentive, answering any queries large and small, and making sure you’re happy. On the day she was everywhere making sure that everything ran smoothly and was just how you wanted. She was also genuinely excited to share in your day, you can tell it’s much more than just a job to her. Mount Ephraim itself is a stunning venue, both the house and gardens, we couldn’t have had the wedding anywhere more perfect. Our guests loved it just as much as we did. And the photos taken in the garden are stunning! The food was delicious, and all the staff involved were brilliant. It’s the most beautiful venue.

Laura and Dan 27.05.2017

Gosia specifically was INCREDIBLE – nothing was missed in the lead up, the perfect wedding coordinator and felt like more of a guest! The venue is gorgeous, we were lucky enough for the wedding to be hosted outside. The room to get ready in for the bride’s party is huge, the dining room was spacious and being able to dress the space before put my mind at ease, the wedding rooms for the evening were spotless and beautifully decorated. 100% recommended!

House Wedding Reception for Laura and Aaron

Thank you both very much indeed for opening your home to us on the 22nd September. We enjoyed a wonderful wedding day – everything about it was perfect. Mount Ephraim certainly played its part in generating an atmosphere to remember. So many of our guests have since commented favourably on our choice of venue. We wish to say a particular thank you to Sally who helped us with the set-up of the rooms and offered very useful suggestions. We’ve been left with many happy memories to treasure.

Best wishes to you both

Laura and Aaron

Daniel and Kathy Beel

We both had a wonderful day and had lots of complements regarding your service. Our guests were particularly impressed with the quality of the food and level of service provided by your staff both during the meal and evening bar service. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the team and thank you again for making our day so special.

Daniel & Kathy

Marquee Wedding Reception for Katy Bothwell and Josh Watson

We were absolutely delighted with the food and service on the day. From day 1 we have been highly impressed with your professionalism and organisation. The food was really delicious – amazing to have such high quality food for 140 people. Many of our guests complimented the food. A guest who has been to many weddings said it was the best wedding food he had ever tasted and I think lots of people agreed with this.

What they didn’t necessarily see, were the things the team did behind the scenes to make sure the day ran smoothly. From checking we had the right number of tables, to meeting everyone’s dietary requirements perfectly, our expectations were exceeded. Hannah and Mark were brilliant on the day. They helped us to decide what to do about the receiving line and the photographs which had to change because of the rain. Mark even stepped in to help with our whole wedding party photograph and to ask everyone to stand up for the bride and groom. He gave tips to the best man, and dealt with any issues efficiently and with humour! All the staff were fantastic and it meant that the day was seamless.

We’d like to thank you personally for taking on every request we made, advising us on all the tiniest details, and always staying in communication with us. I know we must have created quite a lot of work with lots of changes and little extras.

We are still waiting for the official photos but I can send a couple our friends have taken.

Kind regards

Katy Watson

Marquee Wedding Reception at Mount Ephraim Gardens

I just wanted to say thank you for managing the reception at my daughters wedding on Saturday.

It was without exception brilliantly done and the standards of service , presentation and quality of food and drink outstanding.

Please thank every one involved and many thanks to you again.

Warm regards

Marquee Wedding Reception for Emma Chapman

May I say that we were absolutely delighted with the venue, it was perfect in every way. There was so much space for all the guests to wander and admire the beautiful gardens – and many certainly did just that. The weather was an absolute bonus as it enabled us all to fully appreciate the lovely surroundings.

A special thank you to Sally for all her help –nothing was a problem and she was eager to help in any way she could.

Both my daughter and new son-in-law were absolutely thrilled with their wedding day, and we thank you very much.

Yours sincerely

J.M. Chapman (Father of the Bride)

Mick and Dorothy Clayton

Dear Sally. Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special on Saturday. Your hard work did not go un-noticed! All our guests fell in love with Mount Ephraim, well who could not, and I have already sent our thanks to Scott Anderson for providing first class catering services throughout the whole day. Thankyou once again for everything.

Mick and Dorothy Clayton

Wedding Reception at Mount Ephraim Gardens House

We just wanted to send a massive thank you for making our wedding day at Mount Ephraim so special.

Everything was just brilliant from our initial menu tasting, the pre-wedding service and then on the day all the chefs, the bar staff to the servers and everyone else who played a part. The food was brilliant and literally everyone has commented to us how impressed they were with the service and the food itself. I have been to many weddings and this was by far the best food and service I have ever seen.

A special thanks to Joanna and the bar manager (I am really sorry that I have forgotton her name because she was superb) because they were out of this world – we felt really looked after and that was really nice to have.

Thank you once again.

Mr & Mrs Benka

Siobhan and Lewis Reddin-Tasker

We just would like to say a big thank you to you and your team for a brilliant wedding reception at Mount Ephraim. We had a perfect day! All the staff were polite, helpful and professional and we cannot imagine a better day. The food was delicious and very well received. We look forward to visiting Mount Ephraim again soon to bring back fond memories!

House Wedding Reception for Angela Hayward and Simon Reese

I wanted to write and tell you that you and your whole team were just fantastic yesterday. People are raving about the food they had and while we knew the food would be delicious we didn’t expect that the service would be so attentive yet so unobtrusive. Everything yesterday was so seamless and that was entirely down to you, Scott, Joanne and the rest of the team.

People keep asking me if I had a terribly stressful time organising a wedding in a relatively short timescale and I can honestly say I have not had one moment of stress and again that is because of you and Claire at Mount Ephraim.

From the bottom of our hearts thank you.

Angela and Simon

Wedding of Faith Rudd and Michael Trimmer

A big thank you for all you did for our son’s special day. The attention to detail was very impressive, we all did say. The waitresses were excellent, the service unique and precise. Everyone knew their place, all looked so nice. Beautiful food, delivered with style. You really deserve high praise, you went the extra mile.

Stuart and Fiona Trimmer

Hilary and David Edridge

We just wanted to thank you so much for all that you did to make our day so special. Having our ‘wedding reception’ with you, at Mount Ephraim, was just perfect in every way – even the sun shone! So thank you again to you and your staff for all that you did. We and all our guests had just a wonderful day. With kind regards. Hilary and David
