Jorge and the Batesford hotel did the most amazing job on our wedding day. Jorge has such an attractive nature that instantly makes you feel at ease! His genuine excitement about our wedding made it feel like he was an old friend, whilst always remaining professional. No request was to big or small. Jorge would help us out whenever we were not sure of something. With Jorge’s extensive experience, he made our wedding run smooth, whilst appearing effortless. His attention to detail was most impressive. We loved planning our wedding with Jorge at the Batesford Hotel! It Was stress free and fun, and that is a credit to how Jorge does business! Thanks so much for giving us a day bigger and better than we could ever have imagined! The pictures tell the rest of how beautiful the Batesford Hotel is!

Me and my husband got married here in March, and honestly, I couldn’t recommend this venue enough! Tanya and Jorge were amazing and so easy to deal with. They made our wedding planning so easy and relaxed. Jorge went above and beyond for me on my wedding day. Always making sure I had a glass of wine because I was so busy talking to everyone, I always forgot to get myself a drink lol. The food was amazing, and the service was great! Would highly recommend the Batesford for anyone’s wedding you will not be disappointed 😊 thanks so much to everyone that helped on our day. And a big thankyou to Jorge you were amazing!
