Dear Hamish & Susie,

 

We cannot thank you enough for being the most welcoming, kind, enthusiastic hosts for our wedding. You welcomed us into your property so openly and made us feel very comfortable - which was perhaps the most important thing on what has potential to be a stressful day. And we have made new friends! Even more special. Thank you!!

When searching for the perfect wedding venue, we only visited Little Dower House. It is just as stunning in real life as in the photos. With the most beautifully kept gardens throughout, we were speechless seeing each area it has to offer from the main field to the walled gardens. We knew it was perfect for our wedding day.

The hideaway made it extra special being able to spend the night before and the morning of the wedding getting ready there, with my best friend, it was just lovely. My family staying in their stunning house at the venue entrance and so close-by, it felt comforting.

 

Hamish and Susie were just fabulous!! They made us feel so welcome, being able make the day completely about us, having every detail we wanted come to life and never questioning our requests. It was the best thing for a bride-to-be to be made to feel so relaxed with the help prior to the day as well as being on hand to help on the day too!

 

Little Dower House will forever hold a special place in our hearts for letting us celebrate our love with all our friends and family on our wedding day!

When looking for a wedding venue, we really wanted somewhere that felt personal to us, we wanted flexibility, we wanted it to be beautiful but practical. Little Dower House was actually the first place we saw not long after getting engaged and it felt so right, we saw no other venues - at all! 

Hamish and Suzie came to feel like part of our family. Through all the planning, introducing us to suppliers that would meet our needs and budget, entertaining the most outlandish ideas we put forward but most of all, being genuine people who prioritised us (and not profit!) when the pandemic meant we had to move our date from 2020 to 2021. 

We had such a positive experience that we're still occasionally in touch; letting them know when our daughter was born in 2022 and acting as a reference for other couples who were curious to learn about our experience. They may seem too good to be true but let me assure you they will work tirelessly to make sure you are happy, that the gardens are looking their absolute best and that you'll have a day you'll never forget for all the best reasons. 

 

Thank you LDH, Hamish and Susie ~ Clodagh and Elliot, married/partied 'till the small hours

We loved the idea of having our wedding venue close to our home of Windsor and happened to come across Little Dower House, which was ideal and has the most glorious setting of Windsor castle in the backdrop.

 

Upon meeting Hamish and Susie, we knew it was the perfect place to have our special day. We received such a warm welcome from the pair, they couldn't do enough for us, from recommending suppliers, to helping with the setup and on the day. Having to plan a wedding during covid times was filled with uncertainty but both Hamish and Susie were reassuring, caring, and flexible when needed. 

 

What drew us to this venue was having everything in one place and the ability to stretch the wedding vibes over a few days unlike much other venues.   The ability to flow to different settings with our guests throughout the day; from the ceremony under the capalta tree, to canapés by the brook and lovers swing, ending up in the wildflower field for our reception. We loved having intimate gathering the day before with our bridal party at the cottage which soon turned into glam central the following morning. This paired with the attentiveness of Susie and Hamish felt very personal and not your average hotel wedding. 

 

We're so pleased we went for Little Dower as our wedding venue and it still comes up in conversation as one of the favourites of our guests and we have to agree!

Dear Hamish and Susie,

 

Thank you so much for making our special day - the best wedding day EVER!! It was everything we could have dreamed of. From your gentle guidance on what we needed and recommendation on the catering and marquee to the spectacular surroundings. For letting us wander and enjoy these beautiful gardens - we felt like it was our own home at times!!

 

All our guests were completely blown away by everything, so thank you again for making our wedding day the perfect day! We will hopefully be back for our 1st anniversary at the Lodge :)

 

You really went above and beyond for us. All our love - stay in touch.

Dear Hamish, Susie and all The Team,

 

Thank you for making our dreams come true. Getting married here has been perfect - we couldn't have wished for anything more. We will be back soon.

 

We chose The Little Dower House because we wanted a 'blank canvas' venue where we could do what we wanted and party as late as we wanted. When we saw the beautiful grounds and the approach that Hamish and Susie took it was a no brainer - we were in no doubt it was the venue for us. 

We enjoyed everything. It wasn't a great day weather wise, but from the reception in a standalone marquee to the surprisingly epic firework display organised by Hamish, it was a thrill from start to finish. 

Hamish and Susie were incredibly accommodating and a true pleasure to work with. They were flexible on everything we wanted to achieve and the work they put into the event, from accepting our suppliers onto the property to making sure the grounds looked their best was excellent. The gardens and grounds are undoubtedly stunning, and a reflection of the work that goes into them. Clearly Hamish and Susie are incredibly passionate about their venue, and it shows.

I think the most obvious standout moment was having a flash mob sing Les Mis when we entered for dinner. We had no idea it was about to happen and took us by complete surprise - a really amazing moment organised by Thea's mum. She had the MC's, the Chef, the Best Men all in on it - quite the operation.

The moment Sam & I walked up the drive at Little Dower House, we could feel the magic and instantly knew we would host our special celebration there. We were looking for something quite specific for our wedding venue and the fact we could use it as a blank canvas and create it as our own was just what we wanted.  We loved creating everything ourselves and making lots of personal touches from; Sam making the bars and various other items to decorating the big trees with pictures of our families to celebrate the special bond and love.

 

We were looking for a magical, whimsical outdoor space and Little Dower House was that and more.

Susie & Hamish are so welcoming, friendly and warm, they went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect- these are very special people who have a very special place to offer, they make you feel like family and are invested in you having the best day.

 

The stunning walled garden and theatrical Indian Catalpa tree sold it for us, we envisaged being blessed under the tree in front of all of our guests and that is exactly what we did, it felt like a very intimate experience. We loved being able to have our wedding breakfast and evening celebrations in a beautiful sail top market in the field, (Sam & I met at a festival in a field and have a great love for the outdoors so our day had to be outdoors.) Our families are from Staines, West London and Bracknell, so not only was it an ideal location geographically but the stunning grounds and views of Windsor Castle made it the only choice for us.

Our wedding highlights:

  • I (Zoe) had always wanted to learn to play the saxophone, so learnt in secret for 9 months before the wedding. I surprised all the guests, including my new husband just after we were pronounced husband and wife with a little flashmob, this really got the party started.

  • We had my cousin cater our wedding with her amazing food, this made our day even more special to have someone so close to us have such a big part to play and our guests were wowed with her delights especially the vintage step ladder display of desserts- the Eton mess was to die for!

  • Being able to have our beautiful dog at our day

  • Our wedding band were incredible; the dance floor was never empty- The Velvet Notes. What a party we had.

  • Sunset over the castle and partying until the early hours.

  • We loved our wedding so much we didn't want it to end. The night ended like this for us!! {Zoe sent us a hilarious picture of her asleep on the dance floor!)

 

This really was the dream wedding and to this day our guests still comment that is was the best most unique celebration they had ever been to, there is something VERY special about Little Dower House. Thank you so much for allowing us to have the wedding of our dreams, we wouldn't have changed one thing, it was everything we wished for and MORE!
