22nd July 2011

This is a thank you to all the staff at Stanley House, Mellor.
We have just celebrated our wedding 22nd July 2011 and just wish to put in writing how delighted we were with how the day and preparations leading up to the big event were conducted.
We had a dedicated person, Joy who was our main point of contact, however, if she was ever unavailable there was always Emma or other staff who knew who we were and could look at every detail on file.
The day before our wedding we were introduced to David Jones who then went through in great detail all the specific requirements and timetable of the day and who would be doing what in what order and answering all our many questions.
Notes were taken and we left having every confidence that the day would run smoothly.
We were not disappointed! We can honestly say we had a fabulous day, everything went to plan and we have received nothing but compliments on the venue, staff and above all, the food. We had fillet steak which was divine. The children were also very happy with their menu choices.
Our room was beautiful and breakfast delicious.
We even added a live band at last minute and again everything was taken care of with minimum input from ourselves.
Every detail was 100%
A great decision to choose Stanley House as our wedding venue.

Hi Emma,
Cara and I would just like to express our sincere thanks for everything that you and all the Staff at Stanley House did before and during our wedding to make it the best day of our lives.
Absolutely everyone who came said it was the best wedding they had been to and had an amazing time thanks in no small part to the hard work done by you and your colleagues. The venue couldn’t have worked better and was thoroughly enjoyed by all, the food was great, the accommodation was great and even the weather was on our side, not sure how you arranged for those few hours of sun but thanks!!
I have to point out how wonderful it was dealing with you throughout the planning stages and right to the big day, it was invaluable to have such a great contact to be able to answer all our silly questions as soon as they popped into our heads.
Many Thanks and hope to be back soon,
Jordan and Cara Graham

Dear Wendy,
Christine and I, proud parents of the bride, are just bursting to give you and your excellent team a great big hug!Four years ago you gave our son a fantastic send off into married life, but now you have surpassed even that high standard.Every expectation has been exceeded.From the moment we began to assemble, early on the Saturday morning, to the last departure on Sunday lunchtime, everything ran like clockwork.The only pity is that we don’t have any more children to give the Stanley House experience. Keep up the good work! Love Christine and Michael

My husband and I booked Stanley House for our wedding reception some two and a half years before the day. I am extremely organised but after looking at many other venues, I felt Stanley House could not be beaten so was eager to book up. I am someone who has very high expectations, a perfectionist, and Stanley House and the team did not fail to impress.
Emma and Joy, event and wedding planners, were fantastic. Emma was our main contact and she did everything in her power to make sure our day was incredible, every wish was catered for.
David Jones, was our events manager who helped with the running of the day. He was brilliant. Professional, considerate and went beyound our expectations to ensure our day ran as smoothly as possible, Also not to forget to mention Louis, who was a delight.
The food and drink was amazing from the canapes and cocktails for the welcome, the wedding breakfast to the evening buffet. Our guests, like ourselves were very impressed.
The rooms were fantastic. Our families occupied most of the rooms and had a pleasant stay. Myself and my husband enjoyed the room so much we stayed an extra night. My only grip would be that breakfast time should be extended particularly at the weekends.
We would also like to mention the beautiful flowers arranged by Linda Hardman at the Flower shop in Clitheroe, a contact of Stanley House. Minerva ensamble played wonderful music for our welcolm and breakfast. Our band, Frisco and Broadband provided us and our guests with brilliant music for the evening reception, everyone commented how fantastic they were. I enjoyed the night dancing on the fabulous starlit floor we hired via Janet at Starlit flooring.
Our day was perfect, our dreams came true and we could not have wished for a better venue.
