TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR HAPPY COUPLES
From the moment we visited That Amazing Place we knew it was the perfect venue for us to get married in but little did we know how magical and amazing our wedding would be.
Angie, you are brilliant at what you do. You have excellent judgment, huge passion and you must be a Virgo because your attention to detail is impeccable. Thank you for delivering the wedding of our dreams.
Shout out to Paul for making us and our guests feel so welcome.
For all bride and grooms looking for the perfect venue look no further and book today. Our guests actually said it was the best wedding they had ever been to #naileditKatie & Darren
Angie has been great throughout all the planning answering all the questions we had and made it as stress free as can be! They have a great list of suppliers that we found to be amazing and as they have worked together before it just works so perfectly!
Our day went by without any problems and we had the best day! All our guests had a great time and they all commented on what a lovely venue it was. Thank you all so much 😊😊💖 Vikki & Steve
It’s equally good for a romantic or family stay. You won’t regret booking. Anja & Stuart
From the first emails and phone calls I had with Angie I knew that this was the place for our wedding. Angie was fantastic every step of the way, she was always on hand to answer any questions and give guidance. When it came to the day, well, I didn’t have to do a thing, Angie and Magpie Catering just made everything happen for me just as I had planned. I wasn’t aware of anything being set up etc and just had the most amazing morning with my bridesmaids.
The owner, Paul was also incredible. I stayed the night before and he made sure we had prosecco and everything we needed. On the morning of the wedding we were treated to champagne and he even put my Dad at ease when his nerves were all too much for him. He made us feel so welcome and treated us like close friends.
Moving onto the venue itself, it’s simply stunning. We had our wedding outside which was beautifully set up and then the wedding breakfast in the marquee which is a new addition to the venue. The views from the marquee were amazing and all our guests loved it. We then danced the night away in their hall and outside which was magical. Every inch of the house is decorated beautifully and everywhere is immaculate. The new bridal suite made getting ready in the morning such a treat. The whole day flowed so seamlessly thanks to Angie and the team, it was literally the best day of our lives.
I would recommend That Amazing Place a million times over, it’s the perfect wedding venue for any kind of wedding. We had just over 100 guests but they could easily hold a beautiful intimate wedding. I wish we could do it all again and we will definitely be returning to stay one day! Lucy & Mike
I don’t even know where to start, we could not recommend That Amazing Place enough!
From the moment we walked in to view TAP we felt at home, it was the first and only venue we had to see. It really does live up to its name and everyone has said so. My sisters, Mum and I were luckily enough to stay the night before the wedding and I would highly recommend this if you can. We were made to feel so at home.
The morning of the wedding was perfect, I had been so nervous all week, however, that morning was so calm. We got ready in the Wedding Cottage which is the best, we had hair being done upstairs and make up downstairs.
We had the best day of our lives and That Amazing Place was a huge part of it. Paul and Jayne are literally so lovely and friendly it’s ridiculous. Angie was so organised we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Everything was set up perfectly. Our food was out of this world, everyone said how tasty it was and this was down to Magpie Catering.
Thank you so much.Reece & Leah
If you get the chance to stay the night before your wedding, I couldn’t recommend it enough. Paul and his wife practically passed the house over to us to treat as our own, nothing was too much trouble and their hospitality was second to none.
The late addition to our wedding was the use of the marquee and we are so so happy that we did this. We were blessed with beautiful weather on Saturday which meant that the marquee was opened up overlooking the stunning grounds.
Myself and Paul didn’t want the day to end and would love to do it all again. I’m busy pondering what I could book TAP for in the near future, not feeling ready to let go of it just yet!
Thank you so much to Angie and all the team for making our wedding so utterly amazing. A day which will be etched on our memories forever.
There is no venue that compares with That Amazing Place, it truly is amazing.
Lots of love
Mr & Mrs Smith xxxxx Greta & Paul
From the moment we signed the contract to the last drink on our wedding day, Angie and her team were with us every step of the way.
The venue is a delight and great transport links with the motorway nearby and even Epping Tube station a short taxi ride away. We took every room available for a family to stay overnight. The rooms are lovely and we loved the wedding cottage! But if you need more there are lots of cheap hotels nearby for overflow guests.
We could not fault venue, staff, rooms and a location to die for. Perfect for every wedding thank you guys and gals you made our day!!!
Mark and Angela Astarita Mark & Angela
From the moment me and the bridal party arrived the night before we were made to feel so at home. Paul could tell I was a little on edge and immediately showed us to our room and delivered a bottle of prosecco to calm my nerves. It was just what we needed!
The venue is so beautiful and the way it was prepared for our wedding made it look even more special. From the moment I woke up on the wedding morning I was completely relaxed, and even when a couple of bits and pieces didn’t go to plan (florist stuck in traffic etc) Angie made sure to reassure me that everything was being dealt with and that I had nothing to worry about. Angie and the staff decorated the rooms and the patio beautifully with everything I had brought along (which was a lot of stuff). You’re absolute professionals and there wasn’t a single thing I would have changed.
The wedding breakfast went seamlessly and we were so glad that we booked premier crew catering. Our guests are still raving about the food and service!
I couldn’t count on 2 hands how many times our family and friends have said that they now understand why it’s called ‘That Amazing Place’.
I could keep going forever as every part of the day was perfect, but to round up I just want to give Angie, Paul, Sarah and everyone working on that day, a huge thank you for listening to exactly what we wanted, making us feel a welcome and making our magical day, a day we’ll never forget!
The new Mrs Spray xx Hollie & Ben
A massive thank you to Paul, Jayne , Angie, Sarah (Premier Crew) and all the team, still meaning to catch up with you guys . All our guests enjoyed themselves. It really was the best day ever, thanks again for making our day so perfect!!!! Sue & Richard
I now know why they call it “That Amazing Place”!! We had our wonderful wedding day on Friday 18th May with all our close friends and family there, with an intimate outdoor ceremony by the lake. It was a truly magical day and everyone agreed that it was the best wedding venue that they had ever been to. The outdoor grounds and gardens were truly stunning on the day and we were blessed with a lovely sunny day, which made everything even more perfect.
Angie the events Manger at TAP is a wonderful, kind and helpful person who, from the moment we booked the venue, was always at the end of an email or phone call if I wanted some advice or help. On the day she tried her best to keep me calm and to settle my nerves and made sure the day was organised from morning to night. This lady is incredible and our day went to plan completely just the way we wanted it, leaving me to be able to relax in the bridal cottage while we all got ready.
I highly advise staying in the Wedding Cottage as it is stunning and also its really fun getting ready with all your bridesmaids there. Also if there’s availability stay the night before wedding too, its so chilled out and relaxing there and it gets you excited for the next morning.
This place has a homely feel to it as nothing Is too much trouble, the owners work so hard to make sure guests are comfortable and satisfied and you literally have the place to yourselves. NO OTHER VENUE IS LIKE THIS ONE THIS IS EXCLUSIVE!!
Paul and Jayne are wonderful kind and considerate people and sooooo friendly. We were walking around the house like we lived there lol, but that’s what its like there they make you feel so at home. We had many a chats with the owners in the kitchen with my friends and their just such lovely people.
We used Magpie Catering for our food on the day and it was incredible from starters to desserts. Everyone said how amazing the food was, so I highly recommend them. Lizzy works so hard and it shows on the plate, completely restaurant standard food if anything her food is much better!!
I could write a thousand things about this venue, we wish we could do it all again as it was so amazing!! But we will cherish the memories we shared at TAP forever .
Thank you to all the team and staff for making a dream wedding come true .
The NEW Mr & Mrs Benedetti
Laura & George
When we originally booked the venue the marquee hadn’t yet been built, however we decided to add it to our package and so glad we did as it was simply stunning. Angie, you and Sarah (Premier Crew) did an absolute amazing job decorating the venue with all my bits and the food was out of this world. Any question I had or things I wasn’t sure about, I could always reach you by email and you wrote back within a day if not that day. You even gave me great advice when needed. Paul the owner was lovely and from the moment we got there he made sure we had plenty of Prosecco and he really looked after us all so thank you to “That Amazing Place” and everyone involved in our wedding and for celebrating one of the best days of our lives . Lots of Love Gary & Katie. Katie & Gary
It is such a beautiful venue & we are so grateful to have been able to have our Wedding in such a gorgeous setting – not even the rain could ruin the beauty of it all.
Every time we visited we truly felt welcomed like we were family by everyone we encountered. Nothing was ever too much trouble & it really made the whole planning process so much easier & fun for us both.
We had so many comments from all of our family & our friends about how stunning That Amazing Place is & how friendly, helpful & kind every single member staff was that they encountered. We used Premier Crew as our fabulous caterers & everyone commented on how delicious every mouthful of food from the canapés, our gorgeous 3 course meal & the mini takeaways in the evening were. Andy at Herts Events was our fantastic DJ for the evening & put on the most amazing party for us all – the videos are hilarious – it honestly seems like everyone had the best time & we cannot thank you enough for making it so special for all of our guests.
Every single bedroom is absolutely stunning & so comfortable. The Bridal cottage is simple wonderful – especially as if the bridal party are getting ready in there, then you can spy on your guests arriving from the windows on the top floor without them being able to see you!
I feel like I could go on & on about That Amazing Place. I am so happy that we found such a wonderful venue which is run by such wonderful people. It was a day we will never, ever forget & we honestly feel so blessed & special to have had our Day at a truly Amazing Place. I cannot recommend this venue – for any event at all – enough & we will be forever grateful to everyone there.
A tip to any couple looking to book their wedding – this is the place to do it for sure!
Thank you, thank you, thank you again!!! We hope to be back for a stay very soon & will send over our photos to you guys as soon as we have them.
Lots of Love from the new Mr & Mrs O’Loughlin xxxxxxxxxxx Natasha & Jamie
- I was finally marrying the love of my life and
- It was the most stress free day ever.
I thought that we would be pulled left and right all day and it would all be too overwhelming for us to enjoy what we planned. However, Angie and the team ran everything for us so smoothly that we had the time to enjoy the moment.
That Amazing Place has a special place in our hearts as we first stayed there about 5 years ago when it first opened when I booked it for my now husband’s birthday. We instantly fell in love with it, lovely ground, amazing rooms and the customer service from Paul was what made it. We stayed there many times over the years for different occasions, always being greeted with a glass of red and a beer when Paul knew it was us arriving.
Once we found out That Amazing Place started to do weddings we knew straight away that would be where we got married, we booked for one year later. From the get-go Angie was always on hand to help with everything, always answering my emails and phone calls.
The day arrives and the Bridal Party get ready in the Bridal Cottage, which is absolutely stunning and a nice extra that we added later on as it was newly built
We were so lucky to have amazing weather, so the wedding took place outside which was so intimate and romantic. We didn’t have a huge amount of guests, only 60 throughout the whole night, which was the perfect amount. Everything was decorated perfectly and Angie made sure all the little decorations I provided were where I wanted them, I didn’t have to do anything!
We would highly recommend anyone to get married here and we will definitely be staying here for future anniversaries. Angie and staff are so attentive and give 5* service. We would like to give you all a huge thank you for making our special day amazing at the rightly named ‘That Amazing Place’
Love Jade & Luke XXX Jade & Luke
We just wanted to e-mail you to say thank you so much for making our day even more wonderful than it could’ve been. We had a fantastic day and didn’t want it to end.
That Amazing Place doesn’t give it justice to how amazing it actually is. We felt relaxed and able to enjoy our day under your guidance and expertise. It was absolutely perfect, it couldn’t have been any better.
Thank you all, each and every one for making our day as special and amazing as it could’ve been
Lisa and Steve aka Mr & Mrs Dunne xxxx Lisa & Steve
Paul the owner of the building is fantastic (his dogs are lovely too)! He is open minded and thinks in solutions. Because of this we not only had the best wedding day of our live, but the best weekend of our lives. Because we had a small wedding of only 23 guests it was really important for us that the place felt cozy and comfortable (in Dutch we say gezellig!). The way this building is build it felt like this from start to the end. If I can recommend something to a new bride and groom. I would like to recommend a place where you can stay the night before with your closes guest and the night of your wedding and have breakfast before you go as a married couple. We where lucky that we had the opportunity here to do that. So thank you thank you thank you so much for everything!

Just an email to say THANK YOU for making our day so special. The set up, service and food were all incredible and everyone (naturally!) loved the venue. We are so glad that we booked our wedding with you and couldn’t have faulted the day.

The venue is amazing they got that right, it has a real homely feel which just makes everyone so comfortable. The staff are (that word again) amazing ! Nothing is too much trouble. Angie was always on hand to answer my questions. I am a control freak normally but I found myself completely trusting in Angie that she would know best. I went from wanting to decorate the place myself to being able to hand over the reins and wow am I happy I did. She did a fantastic job and when our chilled BBQ plans were ruined by the weather Angie and Sarah (from Premier Crew Hospitality) managed to turn our plans on their head but make it better than we had ever imagined. It all worked so well and we couldn’t be more grateful to them both.
Paul was so nice whenever we met him, always on hand to help out. He took the time throughout the day to came and check on me and see if I was ok. He even entertained some bored lil ones (pre wedding) with the gorgeous new puppy Alfie.
We were able to have our doggy Marvel at the venue with us the whole day, with no restrictions as to where he could and couldn’t be, that meant the world to us.
Also a big shout out to DJ Andy from Herts Events, he kept everyone on the dance floor and was such a nice guy.
The venue is so pretty and a beautiful setting to start the rest of your lives together but what really makes this place so amazing is the people, they felt like part of the family thank you for everything.
Mr & Mrs Tredgett (8/9/17) Joanne & Ian
Unfortunately, it rained literally the entire day of our wedding meaning we couldn’t use the gorgeous grounds but the inside is truly just as beautiful so we didn’t mind and we just had such a fab time that no one really noticed the weather. The layout is great, very easy to socialise with all your guests, but also plenty of room in the bar/ reception area for those who can’t handle the dancefloor all night! The bedrooms were just gorgeous – the bridal suite was just beautiful and everything and everywhere was absolutely spotless and flawlessly maintained.
We love love love That Amazing Place and would whole heartedly recommend it to ANYONE! Thanks a million Angie and the team! Chloe & Darren
The day itself was a dream come true and couldn’t have gone any better. The place looked stunning and we received so many compliments on finding such a gorgeous venue that we couldn’t help but feel a little bit smug! A massive thank you therefore has to go to Angie for all of her help in making the day simply perfect. She helped bring our ideas to life, kept us calm throughout the day and made sure that everything went without a hitch. We also want to say a massive thank you to Paul, Jayne and Jakey for making us feel so at home and so welcome. We’re thrilled that we got to hold our special day at That Amazing Place and honestly couldn’t recommend it enough. We’re looking forward to re-visiting in the future to reminisce on such a wonderful time.
THANK YOU! Emma & Ronnie
Robert and I cannot thank you enough for the truly wonderful day you helped us to create on Sunday. Matthew & Tania enjoyed every second of it and it was exactly as they have hoped it would be.
TAP looked fantastic, so many guests commenting on how exquisite the venue was. We were blessed with a true crisp, sunny winter weather and the atmosphere was filled with love.
In the preparations before the day, it was a true delight to work with you – nothing was too much trouble and I was completely confident that all would be as we hoped. But on the day, it was amazing – your attention to the details and hearing all our requests were totally evident. Your smiley face and calm approach around the venue made everything and everyone operate so smoothly. We so appreciate all your tremendous hard work in helping us all to have a day to remember. Please do pass on our thanks to Paul and Jakey for their help too.
We will have such fabulous memories of an amazing day which we couldn’t have achieved without you. Once again, thank you.
Love Elaine & Robert (Mother and Father of the Groom) Tania & Matthew
It was so special to have had the entire use of the venue from the evening before where we lounged on comfy sofas drinking Prosecco and eating pizza. At that time it was hard to imagine that this beautiful ‘lounge’ would transform the next day not once but twice for the ceremony and then for the evening entertainment.
The day itself was special – thank you so much Angie, Paul and Jayne for making sure everything went so smoothly. Everything Ashlee & Leigh had dreamt their wedding to be was put into place and without you all this would not have been possible, you made us and all our guests feel very welcome. The rooms were lovely with he most comfortable mattresses ever! The food and service from Magpie Caterers and the entertainment from Lovelight Entertainment really top class. The day was perfect, apart from the windy weather, a chance you take on booking a winter wedding! Although lm-Art Wedding Photography still managed to capture some great shots in the stunning grounds.
You were all truly amazing in making this such a memorable day for us all and l thank you all so much for everything you done, especially Angie for putting everything into place. l know what a perfectionist Ashlee is and like me she was over the moon with everything you did. x
Lynn King (Mother of the Bride) Ashlee & Leigh
Tommy and I can’t really put into words how grateful we are for everything you did for us on our Big Day. It truly was the best decision and probably the easiest decision we made in the whole process. It was the most perfect day and everything you both did for us, big and small, made a huge difference. We both felt so at home and you made us feel so welcome every single time we turned up and wandered round, whether it be an open day or wedding fayre. Angie you made the day (well actually the whole experience) so so so easy and I tell everyone that the most phenomenal part was, on what is potentially the most stressful day of your life, I didn’t have to think about anything apart from enjoying myself, which is priceless. Paul, you and your entire family and staff made every moment of being in your wonderful house so special, friends and family commented on how well they were treated and all the extra touches which made people feel so at home. Your advice, ideas, and the time that you put into making every little part of the day (and the evening before and morning after) so perfect is totally priceless to us. I look back regularly at the photos and how stunning they are and know it’s partly a great photographer but mainly a wonderful house, and people who made the day just so fantastic!
A million thank you letters would not be enough, but I hope that we can find another reason to come back. I’ll be recommending you to everyone and anyone who will listen and will sing your praises for years to come. It was the fairy tale wedding we had always dreamt of and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us make it so perfect.
All the best,
Rebecca and Tommy (Mr and Mrs Colkett) x Rebecca & Tommy
We cannot thank you enough for all your hard work on Saturday. We are so very appreciative of all your efforts on the day. Your calm and professional demeanour was evident throughout and was a key factor in enabling the smooth running of the wedding. Knowing that you were in charge to take care of any last minute details or hitches, gave us peace of mind on the day.
We would also like to thank you for your thoroughly efficient help and assistance in the lead up to the wedding, which was so vital to the successful organisation of the day. Your expertise and advice were invaluable and we were so grateful to have had your guidance in so many areas of the wedding planning.
Emily & Joe had a wonderful day – everything was perfect! So many of the guests commented on the beautiful venue and how smoothly everything went on the day. The Hall and outside ceremony area both looked spectacular, thanks to your hard work and attention to detail.
Please pass on our thanks to Paul, Jane & Jakey, who also worked hard on the day to make sure that delicious breakfasts were served, that the venue was extremely clean and well presented and that Emily and her bridesmaids were well looked after prior to the wedding.
Once again, we are most grateful for all your hard work, Angie.
Nicola Hatchett (Mother of the Bride) Emily & Joe
We want to thank Angie from the bottom of our hearts for making our day run so smoothly. We really had nothing to worry about, and all of the suppliers knew exactly what they were doing and when which we know is down to you. Thank you for all of your support before the wedding too, and for your brilliant recommendations! Thank you as well to Paul for being such a star and making us feel so welcome.
We will never forget our special day at That Amazing Place and it will now have pride of place on our wall at home as my brother had a painting of the building commissioned for our wedding present. We wish we could do it all over again and who knows, maybe in 10 or 20 years in the future we will be back celebrating our anniversary.
We really couldn’t recommend That Amazing Place more as a wedding venue. It will be the best decision you make when planning your wedding!

Angie, the Events Manager, was helpful throughout the process in recommending service providers to us, responding very promptly to phone calls and emails, working closely with the catering staff, meeting us in advance to discuss the plans for the big day and making helpful suggestions on some of the finer details and logistics. She helped out on the actual wedding day by coordinating all of the various providers, ensuring the seating arrangements were in place, helping out on the bar in the evening and communicating with us throughout the day to put our minds at ease that everything was running smoothly.
We should say a special mentions to owners, Paul and Jayne, who were both incredibly helpful in the run up to the wedding by being very accommodating to our and our guests’ needs, supplying extra beds, helping our guests to their rooms upon arrival, helping us with decorations on the day of the wedding and the day before and generally being eager to help us at any point.
Overall it was a brilliant wedding in a fantastic venue and it was a very pleasant experience working with Angie, Paul and Jayne. We were lucky in that everything went according to plan and that was thanks to lots of people working together and helping to make such a special day. Jennifer & James
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you have done for us in the build up to our wedding and on the day itself.
The professional service you provided ensured that everything went smoothly and that we had a perfect wedding day, exactly as we wanted. Any small glitches on the day were quickly resolved and your flexible approach and ability to troubleshoot were invaluable!
We both had an amazing time, the best day of our lives.
We have had lots of comment from people about how beautiful the venue is and how much they enjoyed it.
So thanks again, we have absolutely no doubt that this will become the premier place for weddings in the area and we feel privileged to have been one of the first.
Anneke and Phil Anneke & Phil
Our great thanks go to Paul and Jayne. They are absolutely brilliant – as people and as hosts. We are immensely grateful to Paul for all the extra effort he put into helping us organise and set up, for all his patience and kindness. Jayne was a star – from a warm hello in the morning while cooking breakfast to a helping hand in the coming day to the wedding. We do owe Paul and Jayne for how comfortable, cosy and at ease our day felt and each and every guest had only the best things to say about the venue.
The venue was splendid and everything we ever wanted – an outside feel of a country house with a warm and chic but relaxed interior. From superbly comfortable beds and spacious showers to a stunning garden that now adorns our wedding photos, there was not a single fault we (or anyone really) could find. So much lovely space and joyful air to celebrate both inside and outside is the dream of every bride (and groom!).
Thank you a million times for seeing to that we got married 🙂 and for wonderful breakfasts!
And the best night’s sleep 🙂
THANK YOU FOR BEING INCREDIBLE.
Mark and Anastasia Mark & Anastasia
We had lots of compliments on the wedding breakfast, many described it as the best wedding breakfast they had had! The attention to detail and the service delivered by Lizzie and the team at Magpie Caterers was outstanding and we can’t thank them enough for all their help. Would highly recommend the chocolate brownies and the sticky sausages!!” Mr & Mrs Shaw
