Weddings – Why Grim’s Dyke?

The magic of the Grim’s Dyke can be seen throughout the year. In Spring you’ll be treated to the stunning blossom trees that frame the croquet lawn. Should you decide on a Summer wedding, your guests will be served drinks and canapés on the terrace which is adorned by an archway of beautiful wisteria. During Autumn the house and grounds emit a rustic warm glow as the vibrant colours of summer are replaced with orange hues. Winter brings its own stunning images and with the grounds covered in a blanket of snow, your guests can be greeted with a warming mulled wine and dine in candlelight.

We understand how important it is to make your day truly special for you and your guests. Once you confirm your full wedding package with us, we guarantee that you will be the only wedding on the day! You will also have your own wedding coordinator on hand to help plan your day every step of the way. From helping to decide on the best day and time, to choosing the best package and menu for you, we are here to help plan your unique and special day.

As well as offering a variety of wedding packages to suit all tastes and budgets. We are also able to provide a wide selection of menus to suit all tastes.

What some of our clients say…

April 2017 “Fantastic wedding”

We’d just like to say thank you to all for the fantastic wedding that you held for us yesterday. Multiple people approached us over the evening and this morning to say that it was the best wedding that they had ever been to, and we agree.

The planning and management, the food, the service and the ambience were excellent and we couldn’t have asked for more from anyone.

Please give our thanks to Richard and Demelza who were first class and made our day perfect in every way. We really appreciate it. Thank you.

Kind regards, Emma and Darren Power

March 2017 “Wonderful wedding”

Just enjoyed the most wonderful wedding ever at this beautiful hotel, Set in amazing gardens with a long drive up through the woods. Perfect setting for our daughters special day, The wedding coordinator Demelza and Manager John were very attentive from before the wedding and throughout the day making sure everything ran smoothly and how we had all planned. Nothing was too much trouble, they ensured the bride and groom felt extra special. Reception staff were very helpful as most of our guests had rooms at the hotel they were extremely busy.

We stayed in the main house, The room was very impressive clean, with a very comfortable bed and lots of space. Tea, coffee, water all provided. The wedding food menu was exactly the same size and high standard as we had tasted at the taster evening prior to the wedding, The chef and service staff did such a great job to deliver over 80 hot, perfectly presented delicious meals, everyone loved the choux swan.

Thank you to everyone at the Grims Dyke for making this a very special day to remember, We will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Main house the bedrooms were extra special.

July 2016 “Perfect wedding”

For a venue in the Harrow/Watford area for around 50-60 guests I am sure that you could not top The Grim’s Dyke. We had our daughter’s wedding here – ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening disco – and everything ran like clockwork. Truthfully even though we had a couple of problems during the day the organising team just smoothed everything over – including rescuing the whole wedding party from the gardens when we had a very English summer downpour. The music room is a spectacular backdrop for the formal parts and the gardens are just stunning. I visited a number of time over months while planning the wedding and at every time the gardens were brimming with colour and were an absolute delight. Daniel Hunt-Cortes was our superb wedding organiser and Richard our duty manager on the day was a gem. I didn’t have to worry about anything – and could just focus on my guests. I am so so glad that we chose a Friday for the wedding and could then book this venue (nearly a year in advance) as it was simply peerless and worth every penny of the crystal package fee.

June 2016 “Amazing wedding venue”

“My husband and I” got married at Grim’s Dyke at the beginning of June and we couldn’t have been happier with our choice of venue.

First of all, the venue is absolutely stunning. If you’re after a traditional, sophisticated venue with amazing grounds, you can’t go wrong – go and see it! We had both the ceremony and the reception/ evening do there (in the music room) and we’ve had so many comments about what a beautiful place it is. If the weather is good (fortunately the rain that was forecast for our day didn’t materialise!), the grounds are wonderful – they give great opportunities for lovely wedding photos.

Then there was the food….wow, it was amazing (almost 2 months on, people are still talking about the lamb shank!). There was a large selection of dishes for us to choose from, we got to taste 2 starters/ mains/ desserts of our choice (plus 1 sorbet) at a menu tasting and we were really impressed with the food. I’m sure we’ll go back to the restaurant sometime for a meal.

The hotel has a list of recommended suppliers for weddings, e.g. florists, DJ, suit hire, make up artist, string quartet, photographer, chair covers etc. Where we could, we used people off this list and, without exception, they were all excellent.

Last, but absolutely by no means least, the staff at Grim’s Dyke are fantastic. It’s obviously a big job organising a wedding, but my main contact (Dani) was SO lovely to deal with and nothing was too much trouble for her. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with her (and actually, everyone else that we dealt with was lovely too!) – Dani even managed to keep me (relatively) calm on the morning of the wedding 🙂

Grim’s Dyke isn’t a cheap place to have a wedding, but compared to other places I looked at, you get decent value for your money (some other places were a very similar price, but nowhere near as nice!).

So overall, a massive thumbs up…and a huge thank you from us!!

May 2016 “Perfect day!”

Me and my husband celebrated our wedding at the Grimsdyke on 28th May, we booked it back in July last year we knew this was going to be our perfect venue it’s absolutely beautiful and so pretty when all the flowers start to bloom. We were dealing with Daniela Hunt Cortes for everything she couldn’t of been more helpful always being just at the end of the phone if we needed her, would reply to emails straight away, she must of got so many emails from me leading up to the wedding but was always so helpful. Me and my family stayed on the Friday night before and dined in the Gilbert’s restaurant that was lovely proper fine dining, even on a Friday there is a set menu, the only criticism I have is that on the fillet steak there is a £12 supplement charge in my personal opinion that’s a lot when the dish is on a set menu. I was in the Sullivan suite for both nights it’s such a gorgeous room so big and spacious perfect for all the bridal prep, it was very busy on the Saturday morning. Daniela came up to see me a few times checking I was all alright and I left getting the music room ready in all the staffs hands they did a brilliant job I couldn’t of been more pleased with how it all looked, our dream day was coming together perfectly. We had the most incredible wedding, the weather was very sunny, food absolutely delicious some friends have said its the best 3 courses they’ve had at a wedding. Chris and I were so chilled out as we knew what an amazing job everyone was doing for us at grimsdyke. I would definitely recommend grimsdyke for any potential bride and groom looking to have their wedding here you will absolutely love it.
