A huge thank you for everything, we had a fantastic day and our guests have been raving about Burghley and the Wedding Breakfast. So many people came up to us and said it was the best they've ever had so please do pass on our thanks to the catering team.
Our friends and family keep talking about how wonderful the wedding was and how fantastic it was to have the place privatised, so they could take their time and visit this fabulous House while my husband and I were doing our wedding pictures.
Burghley was the most perfect place to hold our wedding day, from the ceremony to the reception (the food was to die for) and evening party. Thank you for making this special day a memory we will cherish forever.
Not only is Burghley House a spectacular setting to host a wedding, it also provides outstanding service from the staff and suppliers. We truly had the most incredible day with minimum stress and could not recommend Burghley highly enough to anyone who is considering it as a wedding venue.
Our day was truly magical. You made us and our guests feel so special and every detail was spot on! Our suppliers have also said how fantastic you were to deal with. Everyone was stunned at the beauty of Burghley and the access to the House was a real hoot for many. The food was exceptional too.
Thank you for making our day so special. Burghley and its team were exceptional.
The tour of the house added something extra special which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Our guests commented on what an amazing time they had and wanted to do it all over again!
We will be forever thankful to the Burghley team for going above and beyond ensuring our day ran like clockwork. The impeccable attention to detail and organisation meant we could truly relax and enjoy every moment of our wedding day.
