“We would like to say a massive thank you for helping us have the most amazing day!  It will be a day we will never forget.  Everyone had the best time!”  Mr & Mrs Nolan, September 2017

Very friendly

Extra special
“Thank you Katie and all the staff at Forrester Park for all your help/service in making our Wedding Day last Saturday extra special, a truly wonderful venue with an amazing team.  We couldn’t have wished for a better venue to hold our wedding.  We’ll have no hesitation in recommending Forrester Park to our friends & Family.”  Simon & Claire, August 2017

Far exceeded expectation
“Katie, I just wanted to send you a huge thank you for helping to make Rachel & Glen’s wedding at Forrester Park such a wonderful occasion.  From the moment we met you when we first visited Forrester’s as a potential wedding venue, your enthusiasm and professionalism has been outstanding. As I said on the day, you have been exactly what the ideal wedding planner should be and more: enthusiastic, supportive, practical and knowledgeable of every aspect of the event.  This was even more important to us because we were not from the Maldon area and the fact that every time I mentioned, in person or on E Mail, that I needed to organise / plan a different action you always came back with suggestions of possible contacts to assist, ranging from accommodation for the weekend, transport to the venue on the wedding day, Cakes and Taxi firms. This made my life so much easier for me.  The quality and speed of responses to e Mails throughout was superb and everything we needed on the day was available in the room for the service, meal and entertainment as well as having the lovely wedding garden available to enjoy our post service drinks and canapés in. The meal was superb, and the professionalism of your team second to none. They were relaxed and attentive throughout and I thought the suggestion to swap Cheese and Cake was a brilliant idea and allowed us to start some of the silly games we included whilst we still enjoyed the cheese as an ongoing option.  As you know it was not the average wedding with just dancing in the evening and the way that we were able to fit in and arrange our own slightly off the wall party entertainment made life so easy for us. The aim of the day was calm, relaxed and flexible with plenty of fun and when I asked Rachel and Glen how the day was for them the fact that they said it had far exceeded their expectation summed it all up. Everyone had a brilliant time and it was thanks to your huge input to the planning and to your fantastic team that this was achieved. Thank you so much.” Linda, August 2017

Venue was perfect
“Thank you so much for helping make our wedding day so special. All your hard work was much appreciated. The food was delicious, the staff friendly and helpful and the venue was perfect. All our guests commented on what a lovely venue it was and how they enjoyed the food and hospitality.” Jo and Gary, August 2017

Just how I had pictured it
“Hi Katie, Just wanted to say thank you for all your help. Everything was perfect, just how I had pictured it. All my guests were saying how lovely the food was too.” Aimee Mockett, August 2017

“Excellent staff and service. Our family enjoyed a lovely carefree wedding in a beautiful, relaxed setting. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you all at Forrester Park for a lovely day.” Dawn, August 2017

Amazing team
“Thank you Katie and all the staff at Forrester Park for making our special day on Saturday so wonderful. A truly wonderful venue with an amazing team. We couldn’t have wished for a better venue to hold our wedding”. Claire, August 2017

“Thank you and all your staff for making our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding day so wonderful. Everyone said how good the food was.” Marie and David, August 2017

Above and beyond
“Thank you for a wonderful wedding day, went above and beyond to make our wedding day so special and food was first class.” Simon, August 2017

Such a good evening
“We all had a great evening, your staff all very helpful and happy, James with the music just fitted in with what we wanted, as we danced the night away. Chris was very good with the flower arranging and sorting the last minute requirements. Big thank you to them all and thank you to you for all your help and patience.” Christine, August 2017

Made us feel special
“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the staff last night. We had a really lovely evening and the food was amazing. The staff were so friendly and helpful, they made us feel as special as we did the day we got married. We both said we want to come back every anniversary now. Thank you again.” Laura, August 2017 (1st anniversary)

What a perfect venue
“Katie made us both feel like ours was her only wedding, nothing was too much trouble and she even managed to keep Groomzilla happy when he started to panic about details/times etc.  Katie loves her job and it shows, she checked suppliers delivery/set up times, sent me pictures to confirm what I wanted where (Katie oversees set up and is hands on with all the extras I wanted), and was always just a phone call away for advice on everything from how much booze to order to time of first dance.  Katie left me to get on with enjoying being the bride and not worrying about anything else.  Everyone at Forrester’s was helpful & friendly and they all make a fantastic team.  What a perfect venue, we had a twilight wedding and everyone commented on how welcoming and friendly it was and the fact the food was amazing just made it all perfect. I have already recommended this venue to friends.”  Siean, July 2017

A wedding to remember
“Forrester Park is an incredibly scenic and welcoming venue for a wedding. The outside location for the service feels very private and cosy. The reception room again is very intimate but can easily host a party of 80.  Now for what makes this venue stand out from the rest. The staff are excellent and cannot do enough to make your day one to remember.  Katie who handles the whole process from start to finish seems to be on hand 24/7 and conducts the day of the event in a cool calm way that puts the parties minds to rest. She is an absolute diamond.”  Malcolm Woolston, July 2017

Exceeded expectations
“I was very impressed. Very attentive staff, very professional. Organisation and attention to detail was very good. Food was well presented, very tasty and well served. Every request met. Exceeded expectations.” Karen, July 2017

So friendly and helpful
“We got married here on 22nd June 2017. All the staff were so friendly and helpful especially Katie who was there for us from start to finish. All our guests said how lovely the venue was and the BBQ was very good. I had an amazing time. Thank you Forrester Park.” Stacy Dewerson, June 2017

Went like clockwork
“Lee and I just wanted to say a big thank you for arranging our amazing wedding day on Saturday.  It went like clockwork from start to finish and we both enjoyed it from start to finish.  Please tell the chef the food was excellent along with the service.  Please also thank Jean and the Croquet team for making us all feel so welcome and for their refreshments, unique walk under the croquet mallet arch experience and their tuition and patience with us all. Their efforts helped make the day a unique wedding to remember for us all. Thank you thank you thank you.”  Harriet and Lee, June 2017

Outdoor ceremony area is stunning
“We got married at Forrester Park on Friday. Our day was absolutely perfect, couldn’t have gone any better and we had the most amazing wedding day. The staff were all fantastic, especially Katie who has been there to answer any questions since before we even booked our wedding, who reassured us (me!) that everything would be fine. The grounds are beautiful, the outdoor ceremony area is stunning. We would definitely recommend Forrester Park to anyone looking for the perfect venue for their wedding day. Thank you so much for helping to make our day everything we dreamed of! The new Mr & Mrs Tinley! xxx” Mandi and Scott, June 2017

So pleased we picked you
“We had such a wonderful wedding and want to thank Katie and all her staff, nothing was too much trouble for any of you. The food was so much more than we could have hoped for.  We have had nothing but compliments about our choice of wedding venue and how lovely all the staff were and how brilliant the food was. Please pass on our thanks to everybody involved, we have so many wonderful memories and are so pleased we picked you to make our day complete from start to finish. I know I’m being gushy but I really can’t tell you enough how wonderful you all are xxxx from a highly delighted Mr & Mrs Brown”. Wendy & James Brown, May 2017

 Loved every moment
“Dear Katie,  We would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to you and all the staff at Forrester Park who assisted to help make our day as memorable and as fantastic as it was. From start to finish every query or problem (additional diners – time frame to eat) was dealt with faultlessly by you and your team and it was those little problems that you dealt with which helped make our day stress free and for that I cannot thank you enough.  I wish I managed to try some of the food but the day was just so overwhelming I just couldn’t manage it but all of our guests commented on how lovely the BBQ was – please pass on our thanks to the chef and all of the kitchen staff.  We loved every moment of our time at Forrester Park and we will remember it forever.

Thank you once again.” Frank & Karen Board, August 2016

Every detail perfect
“My wife and I cannot praise Forrester Park enough for the way they administered our sons wedding reception. It is not often that you can say that to every detail everything was perfect, but in this case it was. Prior to the wedding, several conversations/meetings were organised with Katie and Tim, so that every aspect of the day was fully covered.  From the moment the party arrived there was a member of staff at the clubhouse door to direct them to the garden to by met by Tim who also helped the ladies up the slope, Katie was in the marquee for last minute checks, the staff did a brilliant job in serving welcome drinks and canapés, and then we were guided to our tables for dinner. Food was of excellent quality, service quick and efficient, wine plentiful, and it was noticed how Katie and Tim watched every table being served to ensure it was served in the correct manner and any allergies catered for.  Following the speeches evening guests were warmly welcomed and the staff again excelled. Staff were friendly throughout, plates/glasses were cleared immediately when finished, bar staff were efficient and never a queue. The evening buffet was excellent, with items being quickly replenished. A number of comments received from our guests said that it was one of the best wedding venues that they have attended, Katie and Tim deserve a lot of credit, in addition to all of the staff who were on duty on this day. Well done and thank you to all.” Dennis Mason, July 2016

True professionals
“Cannot praise this place highly enough. Katie and Tim were so patient, kind and helpful with everything, both before the wedding and during the ceremony. We are so grateful to you both as well as the catering, servers and bar staff. Excellent food, attention to detail and personal touch…true professionals. Your courtesy and kindness were a real credit to you. The many Belgians who came were overwhelmed by the whole experience and have never encountered such friendliness, service and kindness. Many thanks.”  Pete Joy, July 2016

Perfect day
“Thank you so much for making our wedding the perfect day.  We wouldn’t have changed a single thing!” Daniel & Angela, August 2015

Go no further
Had the most amazing wedding here in summer 2015.  The staff and Katie were amazing.  The food was perfect, and everyone perfectly orchestrated my day to exactly what I asked for, if not more! I asked for a buffet to be laid out, which wasn’t attracting my guests inside because it was an extremely hot day, so all the staff, manager included, went round offering canapés, tissues in hand, and it worked!  All the food was gone after! Really couldn’t fault anything here. If you’re looking for a private, nice wedding venue, go no further. Thank you again to all the team here. Couldn’t praise them enough.” Casseopeia, TripAdvisor, July 2016
