Newly Weds at Alcott


 

Alison & Edd 19th August 2017

Alcott Weddings was the first and only venue we viewed when we decided to get married. It’s a beautiful ‘blank canvas’ on which we were able to create our perfect day. Lucy was extremely helpful and had many useful contacts and suggestions for all our needs and queries, which we really appreciated. She was on hand to help with planning, set up and tidy up and made our lives very easy.
The flexibility and accommodating atmosphere we got from Alcott and Lucy was exactly what we were looking for and we wish we could do it all again in exactly the same way!

Love Ali and Edd

We first saw Alcott when we visited the venue for a wedding fair. We loved the stunning venue, with plenty of space for the tipi structures that we had fallen in love with.
Lucy was great to work with. Her bubbly personality is fantastic and her passion for ensuring each wedding is personal to the couple is brilliant.
Our wedding was a perfect day in a perfect location, we loved every second.
Thank you
Natalie and Paul

I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to Lucy for making my brother’s wedding such a memorable event. Lucy helped us to cater for everything we needed, always with a smile and friendly attitude which really put all of us at ease. She helped make the whole process so much more relaxing! (Bella helped an awful lot too!)

Each and every guest, many who had travelled around the world to attend commented on the unique and amazing location which, despite the rain, was beautiful. From the start of the whole process, right to the very end, Lucy was there to help, advise and put us in touch with some incredible suppliers. The caters, marquee suppliers, Photo Booth/bouncy castle guys, all were superb and all recommended by Lucy. She catered for and accommodated each and every thing we threw her way with professionalism and grace.

On behalf of the couple, family and guests I would like to thank Lucy (and Bella, of course), for making the wedding such a wonderful occasion for us all.”

Most people only get married once in their lives, Lucy at Alcott gets married every weekend! This means that the knowledge, experience and contacts that Lucy has is everything you could ever need to plan your big day down to the last tee. The help and assistance that Lucy provided for us was amazing and we’ll be forever grateful of this. If you are considering Alcott for your wedding, stop considering and just book it!

Han & Jon 1st July

We came across Alcott Farm at the end of 2015 through their website. After reading some great reviews, we arranged a meeting with Lucy at Christmas and we were put at ease straight away. Meeting over a friendly cuppa, we were able to get our date booked in.

The farm, lake and fields really speak for themselves- set in beautiful surroundings we were hooked straight away. We knew what wedding we were wanting from the outset and chatting through our ideas with Lucy, we realised she was going to help as much as possible to make our dream a reality.

Throughout the following year, we were guided with suppliers, sent recommendations for us to look into and we continued to receive friendly emails to see if there was any more that Lucy could help us with. We looked into additional suppliers and Lucy couldn’t have been more accommodating, speaking with them to make sure it would all work ok on the day. All of this really helped to make the build up to the wedding so much easier.

The wedding weekend soon flew round and throughout the whole time, Lucy and her team were at hand and on site, meeting with our suppliers and helping set the venue up. Our families and bridesmaids were welcomed and settled into their rooms on the evening before, along with all of us being cooked a fab breakfast each morning at a time to suit. On the Sunday, it was all hands on deck for the clear down and Lucy and her team were with us all the way.

To be able to say that the only nerves in the build up to the wedding was whether the weather was going to be on our side, we couldn’t recommend booking your wedding at Alcott farm enough.

Thank you to Lucy and all the team- we really had the best day of our lives and you all helped to make it that bit more special. Han & Jon x

From the day of booking our wedding at Alcott, we received emails and support from Lucy. She listened to our ideas and recommended suppliers and was just fantastic throughout. All our guests commented on the venue itself and those who stayed in the B&B all said how beautiful it was and how friendly and lovely Lucy and her family were. Thank you so much for everything you did for us and how much you helped us. You gave us a wedding day we will never ever forget xxx

My husband and I had an absolutely incredible wedding at Alcott! From the day we booked our wedding, to the end of our wedding night Lucy has been absolutely amazing! Her help and support along the way helped us to plan the wedding of our dreams. Lucy suggested the most amazing suppliers who all helped to make our wedding the most amazing day of our lives!

We cannot recommend Lucy and Alcott Weddings enough for anyone who is looking to create an amazing wedding day in this amazing countryside setting!

Thank you so much Lucy and her team

The venue ended up being better than ever imagined, it was like a fairy tale! The commitment from Lucy and her carefully nominated suppliers meant for a seamless and memorable day. The location, people and overall vibe were on point and could not be faulted, made even better having the full English served in the guest house the morning after. We will never forget the day, ever!

Becci & Ralph 13th August 2016

 “We knew that we wanted a tipi wedding and we knew that we wanted a beautiful location in which to put the tipi. We called Lucy at Alcott Weddings and arranged a meeting, along with a couple of other venues. After meeting with Lucy and going over what she could offer us we took a ride down the drive to the field that accommodates the tipis. It was perfect. Even on a cold October evening as it was getting dark, we could imagine our big day there, in the sun. The beautiful quiet surroundings were exactly what we were looking for, the oak tree and the lake a wonderful feature bonus. The practical part of us appreciated the large car park, the service road and the excellent drainage system. That night we cancelled viewing the other venues, we knew that this was the place that we would get married. It was perfect.

 

After booking our date we had contact with Lucy on a monthly basis, receiving suggestions of entertainment, decorations and additions to the evening food. Lucy was always on hand to help us out, clarify anything that we needed and help ease our minds.

 

Our big day has now been and gone, last weekend. It was just as perfect as we had hoped, the venue was beautiful. We would recommend Lucy and Alcott Weddings to anyone looking for a wedding that dreams are made of.”

 Thanks Lucy,

Nic & Sam 30th July 2016

It’s difficult to put into words how special our wedding day in July 2016 felt to us…

With a newly arrived four week old baby…people thought we were crazy to go ahead but your professionalism, efficiency, warmth and energy assured us that we would be just fine…and we were right to trust in you…

We can’t thank you enough for making the whole process so enjoyable and exciting…..we still smile just thinking about the whole experience…despite it’s obvious baby related challenges!!

You and your family were so welcoming, friendly and generous at Alcott. Thank you for taking care of my family who came from far and wide to stay there together.

The other professionals you put us in touch with were equally conscientious and reliable and their expertise mirrored yours….we felt such peace of mind with all the other  craziness happening in our lives at that time…that our wedding would be about us and all that is important to us…and that our son could be there with us felt so easy and natural.

Lucy, you were our angel on that day…even getting little Ned a gift…we won’t ever forget your kindness and attention to detail..

We have absolutely no doubt that everyone who is lucky enough to get married at Alcotts feels the same…

Thank you millions…Nic, Sam and Ned Martin xxxx

Mrs & Mrs Becky & Sharon Entecott 16th July 2016

My partner & I booked Alcott nearly two years ago & over that time Lucy has been Amazing. She has kept us informed & up to date with everything. She advised us of what we needed, such as documents from our suppliers, she gave us information on suppliers we may have been interested in & helped with the day to day planning of our Wonderful Big Day.

Lucy has been a backbone, offering help & support & helped make our whole day go smoothly.

We can’t thank her & all the staff at Alcott, including her Mother…..she was so friendly & her breakfast was really tasty.

We stayed in a cottage & was glad we did as the extra room was ideal for me getting my hair & make up done on the morning.

We can’t recommend Lucy & Alcott Weddings enough for our big, bespoke Wedding day.

Lots of Thanks to Lucy & snuggles for Bella too.

We held our company staff and family event at Alcott Weddings this summer. From the very beginning when I first spoke with Lucy I knew it was going to be brilliant. She couldn’t help enough and although we were doing something a bit different, the scale didn’t faze her at all.

We had a music festival for around 250 people and Alcott were just amazing. The weekend was better than any of us could have hoped for and I just can’t thank Alcott enough for their help and support!

Jamie-Leigh & Rob 21st May 2016

“We fell in love with Alcott Farm before we had even seen it but what we didn’t realise is the photographs on the website do not do it justice. Alcott is stunning and the staff are equally as lovely. From the initial consultation to the day itself, Lucy was helpful, professional and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and she bent over backwards to ensure we had the day of our dreams. Our wedding was perfect and a lot of that is because of Lucy’s advice, guidance and hard work. We cannot thank Lucy and her team more for everything they have done, and we will definitely be recommending Alcott Weddings to others.”

Ian and Emma 14th May 2016

For a couple who trawl the Internet, magazines and recommendations for everything they purchase, to only view one wedding venue and book it, is quite telling in itself.

Lucy’s enthusiasm was infectious and it wasn’t just the blank canvas she provides but also the help, support and management that make this venue a wonderful choice for anyone wanting a special place.

We knew roughly what we wanted and Lucy helped us make choices with the right suppliers and put us in touch with the right people. She also let us bring our own ideas and suppliers too.

It felt easy to pull it all together and in the run up, during and afterwards Alcott and Lucy were as welcoming and helpful as ever. Nothing was too much hassle or trouble and everything went off so well without us having to do much on the day or day after with Lucy there to guide it all along smoothly.

The setting is fabulous, a little piece of calm and tranquility amongst rolling hills and we were regularly asked by guests “how did you find this place?”.

We had a truly amazing wedding at Alcott and for anyone wanting a venue that offers a beautiful backdrop, a fantastic host and place to make it your own then look no further than this place, we didn’t and its the best choice we could have made.

Amy and Dave Hardman 8th August 2015

We first saw Alcott Farm at their wedding fair in 2014, from the moment we stepped onto the field and saw it beautifully decorated with tipi’s and hay bales we knew it was the perfect place to hold our wedding.

We wanted somewhere that could provide an outdoor space to hold our festival themed celebration, to play games, to camp, and to dance the night away, what we didn’t expect was somewhere so perfect so close to home and in the Midlands!

Lucy made us feel so welcome from the start, from letting us come to visit to show our families, to her amazing ideas and contacts for suppliers. Lucy helped us with the Tipi supplier, Caterer, bell tents, hay bales, security and even managed to help us find a hair dresser and nail artist at the last minute! We were completely reassured by Lucy that our day would be as perfect as we hoped, she kept in contact throughout our whole planning experience, and was happy to receive a panicked phone call when required (though thankfully not too often)!

On the weekend of our wedding Lucy and her team were amazing, Lucy kept her eye on everything to ensure that the field transformed into our festival dream! And what a transformation, the rolling fields and scenic lakes create the most beautiful backdrop! Everyone at Alcott made us feel relaxed and excited, the B&B at Alcott was such a bonus, allowing those not convinced by camping to stay with us all and join in the whole evening of celebrations!

We would absolutely recommend Alcott Farm as a destination for anybody looking for an outdoor and fun wedding! Lucy’s enthusiasm is infectious and the team at Alcott went out of their way to ensure that our wedding day exactly as we had hoped.

Thank you to Lucy and the team for helping us to create such an incredible day!

Amy and Yann 6th June 2016

We don’t think there are enough positive adjectives in the English language to describe the wonderful experience we had with hosting our wedding at Alcott Weddings, but I’ll give it a go! Lucy was recommended to us by Elite Tents and from start to finish made the process so smooth. Alcott Weddings is set on the stunning location of Alcott Farm. We were getting married in Warwickshire, which had nothing in comparison to offer, so this little gem on the Warwickshire – Worcestershire boarder was the perfect find. Whilst Lucy proclaims she is not a wedding organiser, she has a list with everything you could ever think of when it comes to top quality suppliers and we weren’t disappointed with her recommendations! From booking to set up on the day to organising transport home on the night, Lucy and Alcott Weddings were an integral part of making our wedding the huge success it was!

Amy and Yann.

Helen and Ben Summer 2015

When I got engaged, I had a very particular picture in my mind of what my wedding looked like. I wanted a view, a relaxed vibe, rolling hills and animals frolicking in the background… We looked at so many venues but Alcott Farm was the one that finally ticked all the boxes!

Our day was simply perfect. The views stunned our guests. They couldn’t believe we were only minutes from Birmingham! We really couldn’t have dreamed of anything more. The sun even managed to shine! Big thanks to Lucy too for arranging the lovely Grant!

I would recommend Alcott Farm to anyone! It’s such a special place for any couple wanting something unusual that they and their guests will never forget

Heather and Pete Summer 2015

Pete and I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect venue for our wedding. Lucy was awesome from start to finish and helped us make everything to be as special and memorable as we wanted it to be. So many of our guests commented on what a great wedding it was from the beautiful setting to how we had the freedom to match our personalities with the outdoor wedding we always wanted, but didn’t think this was possible! We can’t thank you enough to we found everything completely stress free! Thank you for the most memorable memories that we and our guests have! Lots of love Heather and Pete xxx

We can’t thank Lucy for everything she did to make our day special. We knew Alcott was the perfect place from the second we saw it and our guests unanimously agreed! Beautiful setting where we could make it our own and an absolutely fabulous welcome at the B&B. We couldn’t have found a better and more amazing location for our wedding!

Dear Lucy

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our special day! We can’t tell you how amazing it was and we will have the memories forever thanks to you. All of our guests told us how fantastic they thought the setting was at Alcott and if they loved it half as much as we did then I know it was awesome. Thank you for all your special touches and all that you and your Mum did to make our guests feel so welcome. All who stayed at the B&B said the breakfasts were awesome! This card and small token won’t say how grateful we are!! We would highly recommend Alcott!

Lots of love Hannah and Chris Kelly 🙂
