Almost 3 months on from our big day and I just wanted to pop you and the Pennard team a message. Our wedding day was everything we dreamed of and more. From our first chat on the phone in July 2022 to our first visit to Pennard we knew we had chosen a wedding venue unlike any other. As soon as we arrived, the incredible Pennard team made us and our guests feel like Pennard House was our home and that warm, loving and family feeling remained throughout the whole weekend. From sewing on buttons minutes before the ceremony, to providing an extra plate full of sausages for one of my flower girls, the Pennard team went above and beyond at every stage of the day and the sticky toffee pudding was hands down the best I have ever tasted!!! The tireless work and effort of all of the team behind the scenes made our day run so smoothly. Which made it the most wonderful and magical experience for us and our guests! And now to you Charlie- Wedding co-ordinator extraordinaire! You were there every step of the way- from keeping me calm and relaxed, to being my personal welly boot remover. I will never be able to express my gratitude for the role you played in our day. You are an incredible asset to the Pennard Team. For any couples looking at getting married in Somerset, we could not recommend Pennard House enough!

Both my husband and I always say that booking Pennard House for our wedding was the best decision we ever made. In our opinion there is no other venue like it.⁣ You feel truly cared for, as if your big day is just as important to everyone else there as it is to you. It doesn’t feel like a business or a wedding factory, it is well and truly made to feel like home. There is a charm about the place that is indescribable but is so special. The house is stunning and the grounds are beautiful, but the real show stopper at this venue is the staff. The whole team are incredible. They are attentive, professional, friendly and polite. There is not even one single complaint for any part of our day. The staff behind the bar were still smiling right until the end of the night, even staying a little later for an extra congratulations. The catering team are exceptional at what they do, a special shout out to Denise who makes sure every part of the catering goes seamlessly. The food is impeccable and the portions are amazing! The coordinating Team, a special shout out to Lucy and Vicky, are there for you every second and are truly lovely people that get the job done effortlessly. Every guest noticed how amazing of a job Pennard did at our wedding, even every vendor has returned saying it is the best venue they have had the pleasure to work at and that they had all been so well cared for, proving they are all just as fantastic behind the scenes. We loved every second of our wedding and would recommend it over and over, and over again. We are now only hoping friends choose this venue so that we can return soon! Thank you Pennard, you are the absolute best!!!

We owe you all the biggest thank you for helping to deliver the most perfect wedding day we could have ever wished for. From the moment we first saw Pennard House we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The staff from our first viewing have been absolutely incredible, extremely attentive and nothing has ever been too much. They have always replied promptly and offered advice when asked. Fast forward to being allocated to our Wedding Coordinator, Charlie. He has been absolutely fantastic, nothing has been too much of an ask. We met Charlie the day before to finalise logistics but everything was in hand. Our actual wedding day couldn’t have gone any smoother, we absolutely loved every single minute of it and wish we could do it all over again. Thank you doesn’t seem enough for everything you and your team have done to bring our day together. We are extremely grateful for everything you have done and would highly recommend anyone to have their wedding at Pennard House, it simply is a magical venue.

Thank you so much for our incredible wedding in June- we had the best weekend and we’re so glad we chose Pennard House. It was absolutely perfect- from the Church at the end of the lawn, to the incredible service (which lots of guests commented on!), the stunning onsite accommodation, to the air conditioning in the Coach House! The food was also absolutely delicious. We are so grateful for how helpful you all were throughout the entire process and how personal the wedding felt. THANK YOU

THE BEST VENUE OF ALL TIME! Pennard house is just stunning. Aside from the beautiful venue - from the gardens to the coach house, the event planners/staff/caterers are even better. Charlie was our wedding director who organised and planned everything! He was honestly incredible and everything I could want in a planner. I didn’t have to worry about a thing, and I thought I was organised but wow he was excellent. Without Charlie I don’t know what I would have done. He knows what he’s doing and he gets everyone in line. Also, how could I forget the food! Denise and her catering team made sure everyone was happy, plenty of alcohol was served and the food was spectacular. Australians are picky and we received so much positive feedback about the food. They were over the moon. Don’t miss the delicious canapés also - the lamb kofta was the best! Also, the salmon and chicken mains were a big hit! Everything was fabulous. One of the best venues with an excellent team. One happy bride and groom. Thanks again Pennard House

Thank you for being so flexible and accommodating - you all went above and beyond…. We can’t stop thinking about all the extraordinary moments All our love

We don't know where to start, which is probably why it has taken us over a month to write this! Your home became our home for the most magical weekend of our lives. Pennard House is the most spectacular place, we are so grateful for everything it is. We never saw any other wedding venues, because, frankly, why bother!? You have created a venue that is a home, that is probably because it has always been a home and with that you have built up an incredible team which all feel like family. Lucy is a superstar! We adore her and are still so grateful she was our wedding director. Her attention to detail and patience was second to none, and of course this came with her smile and warmth. Lucy worked so hard throughout the day and night to make sure our wedding was our dream day, she made everything look effortless and definitely went above and beyond. We cannot thank her enough. To top it off, we also had Ellie on hand to help us. Ellie is the most hardworking and kind individual who only wanted to make sure everything was perfect. I know we tested her at least once, like when Friday night's dinner was pushed back, but she never made it a problem. Ellie was a smile when we were nervous, someone to help with the finishing touches - simply amazing. We hope the rest of your year continues to be filled with amazing weddings and events, and we hope to come visit soon. Lots of love and thanks,

Lucy and Scott 2022

Honestly we don't have enough words to thank you and the Pennard team for what was a fantastic day. It was stress free for us (I'm sure not for you 😂) and that was down to all your hard work, it looked seamless. We also want to thank you all for working with us numerous times to move our date, I have heard some horror stories from friends of ours from there venues and I can say this was not the case with yourselves. Honestly words can not thank you enough for not turning our day into a nightmare of additional costs, fees and ultimatums! And allowed us to have the day we always wanted. Once again thank you so much for everything you have done, you and Pennard house will forever hold a special place in our heart.
