We would certainly recommend the Kissing Gate team for their wedding planning and helping realise the plans and dreams of their customers. We enjoyed the most delightful wedding weekend, with our requests taken on board along with Kissing Gate’s experience and package. The location, setting, tipi, food, drink, ducks, decor, furnishing - down to the tree swing - were ideal and the team were thoughtful, friendly, courteous and hard working. Tessa took a genuine interest in us and our ideas and their use of local suppliers is a great touch. There’s more we could add but we hope the images and videos to come can sum it up nicely! Thank you Kissing Gate events, all the best for the future.
Tessa and the team did a wonderful job of pulling off our relaxed wedding back in July this year. Everything went off without a hitch, even when we unexpectedly turned up an hour and a half early, with guests. Occasionally we had a mix up in communications, once addressed were all rectified promptly and both part of the learning curve for not only my husband and I but Tessa too. Our day couldn’t have been more perfect and easy-going. If there were any hiccups, our guests and I certainly were not aware of them. I highly recommend kissing gate events. We are so relieved that we didn’t celebrate our wedding day in any other way.
Thank you so much to Tessa, David and your amazing team for all your help at our wedding yesterday. You thought of every detail and made the completely stress free for us. The horse box bar is beautiful and you created a really special setting for us. All our guests commented on how lovely the day was and your advice and help in the planning and preparation of it all was invaluable! The staff were so friendly and efficient, it was a pleasure to meet them all. Thank you for helping to make our special day everything we could have wished for!
Such a lovely evening with kissing gate events. Food was brilliant. Loved the fire pit for outside warmth. The toilets were lovely and clean. Thanks again x
Attended one of kissing gates events recently. It was absolutely brilliant. Lovely setting, luxurious yet rustic feel, great music and lots of atmospheric touches such as twinkly lights, horse box bar and olive trees on the tables. Food was devine and drinks were exceptionally reasonably priced. Weather tried to dampen the evening but failed owing to the professionalism and attentiveness of the kissing gate team. Would 100% recommend.
Went to a wedding fair here yesterday and had such a good time I didn’t want to leave. Not only were the surroundings breathtaking but all the venders were so friendly and helpful. As for the people running the event I again couldn’t fault them, super friendly, helpful, welcoming and pulled off an amazing event with a constant smile on their face. Honestly still smiling today thank you so much. Will definitely be back any opportunity I get xx
Such a great evening for the spring dance, the set up was brilliant and the food was amazing. Would highly recommend kissing gate events for any special occassion.. everything you need bought to you. A night to remember
Just come back from Lizzfest. What a fabulous event. Beautiful venue, very pretty, lovely marquee and bar and very well organised. Tessa is friendly and efficient, there in the background, running everything very professionally. Very impressed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
What a wonderful day at the rustic wedding boot fair. The marquees and stalls were brimming with tonnes of quirky wedding paraphernalia. I bought all sorts from wooden stepping stones to favour cakes in a jar. Some of the stall holders were even giving out freebies. Eating a cream tea, drinking prosecco, listening to live music (including a superb opera singer) whilst sat on a hay bail made a perfect interlude to a more than perfect afternoon. I even LOVED the loohs made out of a converted horse box! Thank you kissing gate events for such an atmospheric day
Friendly and efficient. Such an eye for detail!?
Kissing Gate Events were amazing at my sons wedding yesterday, took away all the stress and left a wonderful day. So many guests commented upon the excellent service, wonderful staff and creative set up, we felt blessed. Congratulations to Tessa and her team, you absolutely ‘smashed it’.
Recently attended Jodie and Duncan's wedding at Thornton Wood and what a wonderful experience, one of the best weddings I have ever been to. It was a fantastic event, everything was just perfect and so much attention to detail, every need catered for. The organisers were in attendance the whole of the time, looking after the guests and ensuring it all ran smoothly. The food was plentiful and delicious, served quickly and efficiently, and soft drinks available at all times, much appreciated on a very hot day! The setting was magical, I felt as though I had been dropped into a scene from a Thomas Hardy novel. Thank you Tessa and team for a perfect day.
I was lucky enough to be invited to a kissing gate wedding last year. So relaxing and something for everyone - so many gorgeous photos of the children enjoying themselves in natural surroundings and relaxed adults truly enjoying the couples’ big day. I would highly recommend Kissing Gate
Loved the whole vibe of the fabulous wedding event at Mallards for Jacqui & Matt. Everything seemed to go very smoothly and the Kissing Gate team were fantastic. Venue beautiful, weather perfect, horsebox loo was hilarious, food excellent - will keep you in mind for when my 3 eventually get married.
Tessa and David and the rest of their team were superb for our son and daughter-in-law's wedding reception. The location was perfect for a summer's day and provided a beautiful backdrop for the photos. We all enjoyed the day
We recently used Kissing Gate Events for our June wedding and I can’t recommend them highly enough, we had absolutely the best day and it was in no small part down to Tessa and her team!! Tessa was heavily involved in the planning stages with us and helped us to bring together our ideas and visualise how it could translate on the day. She also guided us through the picking and putting together of a menu that suited our tastes, giving us pricing guidelines and inspiration along the way. We loved that the setup at Kissing Gate was so flexible that we could have had a 3 course formal meal or something less formal- we went with a bbq and it was enjoyed by all! We were able to build some great rapport and trusted Tessa implicitly with choices that she made regarding food suppliers and also wine choice (plus many other things), and she really delivered. We also really loved the fact that produce was locally sourced, this was important to us. The day before the wedding Tessa and David and their team (and daughter Lilly - Rose) were phenomenal in setting up the site, we were very grateful for their efforts, care and attention! On the day the team made sure all of our guests were welcome, having fun and getting enough food and drink. Our guests enjoyed the intimacy of the site and we had 25 children 5 and under who were able to play safely and freely. I’d also recommend Solent Segways because they entertained many of our guests very well! The food was fantastic and there was no shortage of it! Overall a great service and produce, and innovative ideas like the horsebox bar which was a bit of a Pandora’s box of different alcohols!! We felt that the day was perfect and everything we wanted which was partly down to the help from Tessa and the team - but also because the way that Kissing Gate works meant that we could choose the decor, food, drinks, schedule, music etc etc that we wanted and didn’t have to compromise on anything
Andy and Joyce’s wedding was one of the most beautiful weddings I have attended The venue , tepee and set up was amazing Every need catered for ! A wonderful experience ❤️
What a wonderful day we had at Jax and Matt’s wedding. Made all the more special by the folk at Kissing Gate. The Marquee was fab, service excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you
I attended a Kissing Gate event in Sept 2017, it was a beautifully organised day full of fun. Lovely venue, all the finer details had been thought of and everyone had a great day which is the main thing. Well done Kissing Gate.
Very well organised event with a great variety of information and creative ideas to make your wedding feel special.
I attended a wedding organised by kissing events amazing, really recommend it!
Would like to say a massive thank you to the Kissing Gate team for going above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect. From our initial meeting, we knew we had chosen the best person (Tessa) to help us with our big day. Would highly recommended to anyone wanting an outdoor wedding in the most beautiful marquee, with gorgeous surrounds.
Well, what can I say? We had our wedding in Thornton Woods this weekend. It was exceptional. From the moment we arrived Tessa, Dave and the Kissing Gate team went out of their way to look after us and our guests. The setting and scenery were outstanding, everyone was truly wowed at how unique and beautiful our venue was and the comments from our guests were nothing but positive. Everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the beautiful fire pit was a real feature of our wedding evening. The DJ was playing away all night but actually most people sat in the beautiful woods around tables talking. I noticed a real lack of mobile phones being used by our guests- people talked. It made everything so relaxed, people immediately felt chilled which is exactly how we wanted our reception. Our wedding breakfast was outstanding, the meat was beautiful and the salads were stunning too. Everyone was commenting on how lovely the food was. We had no starters with our food but there was so much food on the tables that everyone definitely had their fill!!! We glamped on site the night of the wedding and woke the next morning to a lovely breakfast around the fire and hot tea and coffee. Perfect after a hard night of partying! From start to finish, working with the Kissing Gate team has been an absolute pleasure. They’ve gone out of their way to tailor our wedding to us, even down to ordering in certain alcohol for our reception to suit our taste. Nothing has been too much trouble. They’ve made the whole process easy and stress-free and Tessa has been on hand to answer any questions along the way. We can’t thank them enough for everything they have done for us and our guests. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a unique wedding or occasion in beautiful surroundings. Definitely something our guest will remember forever. Thank you Tessa, Dave and the rest of the Kissing Gate team.
Incredible people, incredible event. Warm atmosphere and very welcoming
Tess and her team were fantastic, the location, organisation, service, food etc was pretty amazing at my daughter’s wedding Mr & Mrs Page 13.07.19. Thank you Tess and all the team for making this a day to remember for all of us ❤️
Kissing Gate Events were amazing at my cousins wedding last Friday. We were able to really enjoy the day, Tessa and her team ensured the day ran flawlessly. The food was fantastic! Tessa thank you for your help before, during and after the big day. Would highly recommend Kissing Gate Events to all my friends and family.
Tessa and her team supported our school fundraising event by providing a beautiful bell tent and canopy. The children served a cream tea from the tent, using the canopied area as a servery. The tent was set up quickly and calmly by the team and Tessa could not have been more helpful to us in helping to organise our event. I would highly recommend Kissing Gate Events and would not hesitate to hire them on a personal level.
A massive thank you to Tessa and her team for helping to create and execute our dream day! We are forever grateful for the weath of advice we recieved and your flawless attention to detail. We've revieved so many compliments about the food and bar prices. We couldnt have done it without you! Xx
A huge thanks must go to Tessa and her team for helping with the organisation and running of our wedding. The package put together by Tessa was perfect for our dream wedding and since the moment we agreed to let her be a part of our day, we never looked back. The petal pole tent looks and is incredible, making for an amazing venue that truly captures the outdoor wedding vibe. The Horsebox Bar looked perfect centre stage and all the furnishings within the tent made for an amazing atmosphere and picturesque wedding. We cannot thank Tessa enough for helping create memories of our big day that will last a lifetime!
We attended the Wedding reception of Jodie & Duncan and it was beautiful as a location, blown away by the attention to detail and on a hot summers day was plenty of cold drinks and shady tree areas to hang around and catch up with family & friends, the marquee was decked out with flowers and the band rounded off one of the best wedding parties I have ever been too. I would heartily recommend the company and its stunning grounds to host any party, thank you to all the hard-working staff too x
amazing' 100% fab night would recommend for any special event
Attention to detail is everything!!! And you get everything from Kissing Gate Events xxxxxxxxx
