A huge thank-you to the entire team at River Cottage for their part in making our wedding hands-down the best day of our lives! River Cottage has found the perfect blend of Character, Professionalism and Flexibility. The experience was all about freedom of choice, this was our big day and the RC team went to enormous efforts to make sure that we had the run of the place in every sense. As a location, the grounds of River Cottage have charm and the intimacy by the boat load, the Great British countryside at its best. Rounding the tractor track the farmhouse grounds are revealed and we immediately fell in love with the tranquillity, the “Secret Garden” feel and the piglets! As important as the venue, are the people that work there. The staff, were always friendly and attentive, happy to show anyone interested the workings of the kitchen and farm in general. We cannot thank them enough for their hard work and smiles in the face of such a rowdy bunch! Our first point of contact Lydia was fantastic. Friendly and efficient, she took a huge amount of the weight off our shoulders in the preparation stages, always going the extra mile to make the day perfect and a calm presence during the final preparations when overeager family members go a bit nutty. The Head Chef, Gelf, was a wealth of knowledge for the menu, giving us a free reign, suggesting the best ingredients for the season. The end result was superb, every plate cooked and presented to perfection. The ever-present relaxed and rustic atmosphere, giving the dinner and speeches an intimate feels despite there being nearly 100 guests. An unforgettable day, Thank you all!
