Thank you Crondon Park! We couldn’t have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding. From the moment guests started arriving we had people coming up to us telling us what a beautiful venue we’d chosen and everyone raved about how tasty the food was, most notably the duck. We’d like to thank Tracey, in particular, and everyone who assisted at Crondon Park for all of your hard work. It was a long day for you all, but we couldn’t fault your professionalism nor would we change a single detail! If we could, we’d return in a heartbeat to relive it all over again. Lots of post-wedding love, Sam and Becky xxx

Beautiful surroundings and easy access. Above all they have super talented and experienced staff members who will go above and beyond to run your day smoothly. Everyone has been so amazing from the food ( the portions are generous and tasty), following my details decoration instructions to music .. everything is faultless. Ellie has been amazing since the beginning to communicate with me. Because of her dedication, we decided to pick the venue. And Jo on my big day, word can’t be described how much we thanks to her. What an amazing woman who make our day run smoothly with big smile on her face. She gave me courage to walk down on the aisle with comfort .. the storm and heavy wind couldn’t bother us at all.. we want to celebrate our big day all over again as long as it’s “Crondon Park”❤️
