June 2015

I just wanted to say again a HUGE thank you for everything!!!
We truly had the most perfect day and couldn’t have asked for it to have gone any better. Everyone has commented on how amazing the venue was and the few photos we’ve seen look stunning. We can’t wait to see the rest. I think Gary has already shared these few with you but we’ll make sure the rest come over as soon as they’re ready!
Thank you again for all your help right from the start – seeing everything transform from that rainy, grey day in September to the stunning scenes we had was everything we’d dreamed of.
We’ll certainly be heading back to come say hi at some stage 🙂

June 2015

Colin and I wanted to write to you to express our heartfelt thanks to you and your family for a wedding day to remember.

We really appreciated all the time you gave us leading up to the big day, talking through the plans, giving us ideas, hiring out your equipment and putting those extra special touches together (Loved the Gin Bar!) to make it a personal and one-off event!

It felt like it was all meant to be, from my bridesmaid seeing the House Meadow advert, to meeting you.  It is such a special venue which was perfect for us to start our journey as husband and wife 🙂

It is sad for it to be over when it was so much fun to organise…. I am now re-evaluating my life – my family and friends had so much fun they are encouraging me to do more event planning!!

I already miss our excuses to chat and hope that we can still keep in contact.

Thank you doesn’t seem to be a big enough word….many bride and grooms say they didn’t have time to do the things they wanted or that they were too nervous to enjoy the day; but we are so honoured to be able to say that we had the time of our life and enjoyed our wedding day so very much!

Lots of love

Sally and Colin

The House Meadow isn’t your average venue and this is of course obvious as soon as you enter the gates, its absolutely stunning, like something out of a fairytale. However, what I feel makes it really special is Clare.
The passion that Clare has for The House Meadow is what makes this venue different to many others. The House Meadow is a blank canvas, but the most beautiful blank canvas on which to build a perfect wedding. Clare’s knowledge and confidence in what she does puts you completely at ease so that you can actually enjoy planning your wedding rather than feeling nervous or worried.
More than just a place to have your wedding, Clare will ensure you get the day you have always dreamed of in the most incredible surroundings. This place really is a hidden gem in the Kent countryside.

“The House Meadow is the most amazing venue for a truly memorable wedding! The horseshoe barn is an unspoilt rustic gem perfect for the ceremony come rain or shine.

The beauty of being able to tailor the venue entirely to your needs and style is perfect and helps you to create your unique and perfect day.

The best part about the House Meadow is Clare, she is incredible….and her list of suppliers are amazing! She makes you feel completely at ease and jumps right on board with your theme to help you create the best day ever. She helped to keep me calm and was always up for a giggle. I am so pleased that I found this venue and wish I could do it all over again! Thank you again for everything you did to help our day be the best ever! We had so much fun and hope you did too!”

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the time and effort you put in to making Louis and Lisa’s wedding such a wonderful day. Lisa and I always had a picture in our heads of how we hoped the venue would look and with your help our ‘ vision ‘ happened. We really appreciated your attention to every little detail making the day as happy and enjoyable as we hoped it would be. Ebony popping by to say hello and get a cuddle was the icing on the cake!

House Meadow is a wonderful place for a wedding and we are so glad we found you.

Thank you again. When we get the photos back we will send you some and hope you remember how great a day it was as we do.

Hugh and I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for your support and help at our wedding. It was the most amazing day, everything was just so brilliant and you and Sophie just helped everything go so smoothly.

I am really looking forward to seeing the photos of all the details of everything!”

‘Thank you for being SO awesome! You made us feel so happy and relaxed and made everything go without a hitch! The House Meadow is the most incredible venue and I couldn’t be happier and prouder to say that we had our wedding there. You absolutely make The House Meadow what it is! With Love”

Amazing

We will never be able to properly thank you for everything you did to make Saturday so amazing for us. All your hard work and smiles meant that we were able to kick back and enjoy the day which we had been planning for so long. We have SOOO many highlights; my Nicola singing, our beemen boy band, it being little Jackson’s birthday, Adrian ramping up the guests, the food, the music, everything! The rain was a shame but I think we managed to create such a positive and relaxed atmosphere that people were willing to roll with it and still have a good time! We’ve never been to a wedding where most of the guests were up dancing between the main course and desert so we’re taking that as a good sign! The dramatic black skies have made some amazing photos, I can’t wait to see the professional ones from little Jo.

We had endless compliments about how beautiful the setting was and how completely organised and friendly you and your team as well as Nicci and her guys were. People were so interested in their surroundings which you had made look so beautiful. Ash and I shared such a lovely moment when we walked down to the tree in the dark and looked back at everyone ‘avin’ it on the dance floor illuminated by hundreds or fairy lights and candles and those lanterns, it looked so good! I still feel so guilty I caused you all to be soaked 🙁 I hope the rest of the day was alot less stressful!

Clare honestly we are so grateful to you for how calm and positive you have always been, you have made everything seem possible and our whole experience would have been so different if you hadn’t been so wonderfully you. You enabled a dream I have had since I was a little girl to come true and it was a thousand times more amazing than I could have ever thought. And technically you gave me the foundations to land my dream job! What an insane week it’s been, I literally feel like I’ve been hit by a train! Here’s a couple of pics from guests, I will of course let you see some of Little Jo’s when we have them if you’d like to – they can be proof that rainy weddings still work!! Speak to you soon, you definitely haven’t seen the back of us!!”

“Thank you so much for bee-ing so brilliant and making our day everything we’d hoped it would bee. You have been so welcoming and calm from the day we met, I really don’t know what we would have done without your wise words and smile! We really appreciate all your hard work to make our day perfect.

Lots of Love

“Ever since I was a little girl, I’d dreamed of getting married under a tree in a meadow. The House Meadow made my dream come true. I was delighted that I had found such a venue with such an idyllic setting that was in my home county. It was a blank yet beautiful canvas to create our perfect day. To have to freedom to choose what suppliers to use and not have to conform was perfect for us. Saying that, the suppliers that The House Meadow did recommend were all excellent. Clare was a fantastic – great guidance, helpful advice extremely professional yet friendly – she was a great confidante to us in the stressful lead up to the big day. Two years later, I still think of our wedding day every single day, and how beautiful every single moment was, from morning to night”

Thank you so much for making our wedding such a fantastic day.
Your seemingly tireless devotion, enthusiasm and attention to detail made it the huge success it was. It was only because of you that we could entirely relax and enjoy the day, knowing you had it all under control. The day was perfect and exactly what we wanted, for that we are incredibly grateful to you. Good luck with everything – you’re amazing at it all.
Love Jess and Matt xxxx”

“I never thought that anyone would put as much love, time and energy into our Wedding as us, until I met Clare.
The venue is breathtakingly beautiful – in all weathers, and our guests fell in love with it in an instant , just as we did. THM is the polar opposite of some wedding venues – it is full of heart, soul and laughter. It is a family business and the whole family put everything in to each and every Wedding. When we got stressed, they fixed things and helped us to laugh it off, their enthusiasm is infectious – I have no doubt that our Weddings was the fantastic day it was because of Clare and her family, and because of THM. We genuinely feel like we found the place (and the family) by luck – but feel oh so lucky that we did. Thanks for everything but most of all thank you for so many memories.
You were truly truly Phenomenal.
All our love xxx”

We really wanted a blank canvas for our wedding, somewhere we could make our own with an outdoorsy, relaxed feel. We first viewed the House Meadow when it was under construction but we fell in love with it straight away. It is a beautiful sweeping meadow in the heart of the Kent countryside with gorgeous views in every direction. Clare, the venue manager, explained her vision for the venue and we knew it was only going to get better. We were really excited to be part of the venue’s first year of weddings. We also liked the fact that the House Meadow didn’t have a license as it meant that we could have more of a free reign in our ceremony and it was important to us to be able to have Pamela lead our ceremony. This also gave us the chance to have a small legal ceremony with just our parents, Rob’s sister and my Nan which was really nice to celebrate with them ahead of the big day with everyone there.

The team at the House Meadow, led by Clare Passmore, were incredible! They were great at giving us the balance of allowing us to be creative and make the venue and the day exactly what we wanted it to be, whilst offering helpful advice from their events experience. We enjoyed every single visit to the House Meadow in the run up to the wedding and loved getting to know the team and meeting the horses, dogs and ridiculously cute puppies on the farm that the venue is attached to. As the day got closer the whole team went out of their way to bring our vision to life and really helped us out when we had some problems with our marquee supplier. The House Meadow were also able to suggest some excellent suppliers including our caterer Home Gurr’own which really helped us with our decision making. Even when Rob and I were stressing about various things along the way, Clare and the team at the HM would always get us feeling really excited about the day again.”

The five of us drove down to the peacefully located House Meadow farm in Kent.
The moment we arrived excited butterflies started to flutter in my stomach. The weather pulled out trumps and the farm was GORGEOUS! The farm had a lake with a rustic gazebo floating above it. In the middle of the farm was a big, beautiful tree with a wooden swing hanging from it. And just in front of it sat the cutest vintage caravan you ever did see. The setting was a photographers dream!
