"One year since we married and had the best day of our lives celebrating at Pangdean. We are so thankful to you all for making our day wonderful and easy. Everyone who came asks when we are doing it again!!! 
From the first time we met to discuss the day to the morning after when we woke up in our camper van in your field looking over the South Downs, we were taken care of and nothing we asked was too much trouble."

" We had our wedding at Pangdean and I can’t speak highly enough about how wonderful, warm, helpful and brilliant the team are. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and can cater for all weathers and needs of your guests. The food was totally amazing, the service and attention to detail all day was incredible and the whole day was an absolute dream. We had the best day of our lives and are incredibly grateful to the whole team, but especially Krisia, Bryony, Nikki, Sarah, Gill and Chef Alex for making the whole planning process and the day itself just so enjoyable, so personal to us and so magical. We’re SO glad we decided to have our wedding at Pangdean and would highly recommend it to any newly engaged couples looking for a beautiful place to host their special day. Or anyone looking for to host any kind of event! We’ll be looking for any excuse to go back!"

" A quick email from myself and Grant to say a massive thank you for everything! Our wedding day was beyond anything we could have ever imagined. 


Nikki, Krysia, Jamie, Bryony, Gill, Sarah and every single person who works at Pangdean are amazing. You made our day so special and made us feel at ease from the first day we came to meet with you to the last minute getting in our taxi home. Nothing was ever too much to ask for and for that we are so grateful.


Pangdean is a beautiful venue, the food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. We have had so many messages from people to say it’s one of the best weddings they have ever been to, in one of the best venues they have ever visited. Our family and wedding party cannot put into words how amazed they were at how smoothly the day went.


We will forever recommend Pangdean to people and tell them if they are looking for the best day of their lives don’t waste your time going anywhere else.


Again thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.


Lots of love

Mr & Mrs Lashley"

"Everyone is talking about the delicious and generous food – in fact “the best wedding food they have ever had”, and the attentive service – Ben (Andrew’s son) said “he could get used to be called by his name by serving staff” and the seamless running of the day/night.  

As ex-hospitality industry members, the feeling of ownership and pride amongst the entire team particularly impressed us.  It shows through in everything that is done."

Thank you for allowing us to float on air, knowing all the details were being taken care of.


Best wishes,

"It's the people that make the place

Pangdean Old Barn is in a beautiful setting and the venue is stunning. But there are lots of stunning venues. What really made it for us was the people that run the venue.

Every couple is different and so is their wedding. We were so happy to choose a venue with a hands-on team and amazing catering who were happy to bring our DIY festival-style wedding to life. The team were never too busy in the run-up to our wedding. They listened to our dreams and really made them into a reality. On the day they thought of everything, including a snack basket for my hungry toddler during the ceremony, sun cream for the unexpectedly hottest day of spring, playlists played at the right time, puffing my dress before I walked down the aisle, hanging the frames in the blossom-filled trees. Mowing a heart-shape made from blossom in the lawn. Adjusting the schedule when things ran over, and running my best people home at the end of the night. Our only biggest regret is that we won’t ever be able to have another wedding there… but we have plans to definitely be back for our 10-year anniversary!"

"Where do we begin?! We cannot begin to thank each one of your team enough for pulling off the best day of our lives. You truly were all incredible!

Specifically, we wanted to mention:
- Jamie - you really went above and beyond all day from constantly checking if we needed anything, seamlessly and politely keeping us to time, and making sure we were relaxed and enjoying ourselves!
- Krysia - you barely blinked when the day before I arrived with a long to-do list and various random things. Seamlessly it was all put together the next day perfectly!
- Food - the last minute pivot to the Ottolenghi menu really paid off. The food was truly incredible and we had so many guest tell us it was the best food they had eaten at a wedding.
- Garden - it was breathtaking. We had all our fingers and toes crossed for the weather to enjoy it (we were so lucky it was not the next day). I had been dreaming of walking under that rose arch for 2 years and it really did not disappoint.
- Planning process - you all were so amazing! Planning a 150-person wedding from the other side of the world was a big ask but you all made it so painless. From doing multiple tours around the grounds of various family members, ALOT of random emails and phone calls at funny times, and hosting a +20 person rehearsal. Thank you! 

We had so many guest tell us it was the best wedding they had been to and specifically mention how amazing the venue and staff were. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Lots of love,

Anthony and Laura Menniti"

Hi Pangdean team, 


Currently sitting in a hammock in Napa Valley on honeymoon but we just wanted to say the biggest thank you to Nicky and the entire Pangdean team from the bottom of our hearts for Sunday. We had the most incredible day and it was so seamless thanks to you guys! From the first time we visited you and you put us at ease with your kind service and your incredible baked goods and you’ve been so wonderful every step of the way. You’ve dealt with my many, many questions and very detailed itinerary!so politely and with such grace and you’ve reassured us when we really needed it. Everyone has been saying how incredible the venue was, from the impeccable staff service to the amazing food and even going out of your way to direct some guests to the venue at the beginning of the day. Thank you to Nicky for letting us use your beautiful living room for the morning with the bridesmaids and for so kindly driving us to golden hour as well; the photos have turned out incredibly. You all felt like you were fully part of the wedding as well and we honestly just can’t thank you enough. Thank you so so so so much. 


Next up is the taste of Pangdean evening as we want to fully enjoy the food that all of the guests have been raving about!!

Thank you so very much for making our wedding day the most special day. Pangdean is just perfect, not just as a venue but to everyone that all played a special part in the day. We have had multiple people commenting on not only the incredible food and beautiful venue but how each and every person were so friendly, welcoming and made the day run so smoothly. 

We both absolutely loved the food and I’m only annoyed I was so full up and too busy dancing that I couldn’t tuck into the cheese!
