NOTES FROM THE GUESTBOOK

I just wanted to pass on a heartfelt thanks from myself and Andreas. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day. From the start of the day in the torrential rain you and your team were so adaptable and so accommodating, the venue was set up beautifully and everyone commented on how stunning it was. 

I know everyone thought the menu was exceptional too, and we have received so much positive feedback from our family and friends. We feel so grateful that we chose Bridgewater Country Estate for our wedding day, our experiences through booking, planning, and everything on the day was so positive. You are all fantastic - and we will cherish the memories made at Bridgewater forever.
