Sunday lunch with the family — Mansion House Bristol

Dear Simon

Now that I finally have a moment, I would just like to take the opportunity to thank both you and Abigail for all your hard work in providing us with a really fantastic day last Saturday for Ellen and Drew’s wedding.

The Mansion House is such a lovely setting and the weather was even better than we could have hoped for at the end of September!

We really appreciated all the help and support we received from yourself and the rest of the staff  both before the event, and on the day, which ensured that the day went so smoothly and stress free. A number of our guests commented on how helpful and efficient the staff were.

I know that all our guests had a wonderful time,  and that Ellen and Drew loved every minute of it.


With many thanks again,


Kind regards

Ellen & Drew’s very sunny day — The Lord Mayors Mansion House, Clifton.

Hi Abigail,

I was just emailing to say thank you to you and your team for being so wonderful before and on our wedding day.  We had a fantastic day and that was mostly because of you guys; keeping things moving, providing wonderful food, not minding too much when someone broke a plate (still not sure how he dropped his knife and shattered the plate), amongst a million other things you did for us.

I hope dealing with all our guests wasn’t too taxing for you.

Anyway, thank you again for helping us make our day so special.

Best wishes

Gemma & Michael

Gemma & Michael’s smashing day. — The Lord Mayors Mansion House, Clifton.

Dear Abigail, Simon and all the staff at The Mansion House,

Thank you so much for all that you did for our wedding. You have all been wonderful through all of the planning, decisions (and indecision!) and last minute guest list changes and it all came together in such a perfect wedding day. The venue was brilliant, we had so many comments about how beautiful yet relaxed The Mansion House is, and the food was fantastic – we just wished we managed to eat more of the canapés! Thank you all for your help and for being so accommodating and flexible, we will definitely be recommending your venue and services to others.
A great start to married life! (If only we could eat that well everyday!)
Best wishes,
Emily and Tim

Mr & Mrs Shurlock get wedlock off with a blast — The Lord Mayors Mansion House

Good afternoon all,

Apologies for the delay in sending you this note, however I only got back into the office on Tuesday, and having been away since last Wednesday there’s been some catching up to do.

This note is to thank you all most sincerely for the part you each played in the running of the CIMA President’s Lunch last Friday.

We consider that the event was a huge success, which was only achievable by us all pulling together – which we did.

Thank you again.

With best wishes

Alan’s 70th Birthday — The Lord Mayors Mansion House

Hi Abigail,
Thank you so much we had the most fabulous day!
Everything was even better than we could have imagined and the day ran like a dream. James was so helpful from start to finish with anything we needed. All our guests commented on how great the food was the pie and lemon polenta cake were a massive hit!
Thank you to you, Simon and all the team for your help in giving us the most memorable fabulous day!

Becky & Mark get wed — The Lord Mayor's Mansion House

Dear Simon, Abigail, James and the team at Parsnip,

Our journey started when an Australian bride-to-be had the pleasure of planning her wedding. I, being that Aussie bride, had never ever thought what my wedding would look like, nor did i even picture getting married, so i was out of my depth with this whole concept.

So as a typical Australian, i told myself, all i want is an outdoor bbq, a party and of course sun…. you delivered all 3! (well maybe 2 and got lucky on the third)
Thankyou for helping me every step of the way, and being so supportive of my (crazy) ideas. It was fantastic that any question that popped into mind, you were quick to respond (and calm me down). It’s awesome that in such a traditional, english backdrop, you could be so “bespoke” in creating such an intimate Aussie themed BBQ party!

On the day, James was so prepared and present to make sure everything ran smoothly, and it most definitely did. To the chefs, i only wish my dress had more space to let me eat more of the bbq! The burgers, skewers, snags (what we call sausages) were mouth watering and the salads were refreshing. The big hit, the cake made of cheese! (Which we are still enjoying) Our guests could not stop talking about all the food!

Ryan and i cannot thank you and your team enough for such an amazing, memorable, perfect day. From the Rose garden, to the large lawn, to the conservatory, to the ladies powder room (my favourite), it was a dream location. Every time we drive through Clifton, i will be so excited to point out where i got married. Thank you so much again,

Ryan and Diana Mansbridge.

Hi Simon


I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you so much for the catering arrangements earlier this evening.  Once again you and the team raised the bar, and we had really great feedback from the guests about the quality of the canapes, which were delightful, and beautifully presented.

Thank you for that, I know that this was a small event for you, but your support really helped to make this a special evening to remember for the Guardians and their guests.

All the best,
