What a fantastic day
What a fantastic day! I can't think of a single thing which could have been done better. From finally choosing Languard Manor, through to dealing with Mark and Daphne in the run up to the wedding, to the day itself, it was perfect in every way. Even the weather smiled on us.
We did a lot of planning in the run up to the wedding itself and Mark and Daphne were extremely accommodating when it came to setting things up prior to the wedding, giving us a free run of the venue from the Wednesday prior to the wedding until the Monday after the wedding to decorate tables, set up the sweet trolley and all the other details which we wanted to get done in advance.
Their advice on all aspects of the preparations, the sequence of events on the day and their management of the wedding itself could not have been better. They were very flexible when it came to menu's for the meal and in the end we asked for two courses which were not on the standard menu. We also had to cater for vegetarian, pescatarian and a vegan guests, and submitted special menu's for these guests which were produced without any problems.
On the day, we started with drinks on the lawn until the bride and her entourage were ready, followed by the ceremony itself which was held on the lawn. This was followed by canapes and champagne on the lawn until we were called in for the meal. The service was excellent during the meal, with no one having to wait for their food, despite the different requirements of some of our guests. The quality of the food, its preparation and presentation was excellent, and we received many compliments from our guests after eating.
Following the meal and the speeches we were encouraged to make the most of the weather outside, so that the staff could rearrange the dining room for the evening and the band and the DJ could set up. We had 150 guests for the evening do, with music until midnight. We supplied beer and wine, and those who wanted something else were catered for at the bar. Everyone who attended had a fantastic day. I cannot recommend Landguard Manor highly enough!"
"Beautiful grounds, perfect for weddings you can actually marry here. Function rooms are spacious and atmospheric. Owners and staff are welcoming. They also have offices to rent here within the historic manor. Perfectly situated in Shanklin within easy reach of shops."
"Our Towns Woman Guilds had an afternoon tea here yesterday. We were seated in the room by the gardens and also had a marquee. The tables had lovely cloths & napkins. The setting was lovely and the food was great. We had sandwiches, scones with jam & cream and small yummy sweet desserts. I was very impressed with the catering. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Would recommend coming here."
"My husband and I had the best day of our lives here back in 2013. The staff were amazing! Couldn't do enough for us...would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of hiring the manor house for a perfect wedding"
