I just wanted to get in touch to praise the venue and staff on the success of the Lang wedding that took place on Saturday 15th April at The Mansion House.

Myself (sister of the groom), my partner and little girl had a fantastic day. The venue itself was beautiful and a perfect environment for a wedding.

The staff were wonderful and made such an effort to make everyone feel welcome and were wonderfully tolerant and professional with so many children running around all day!

The food was beautifully presented and simply delicious.

When speaking with my brother (Mr C Lang) he couldn’t praise the venue enough for their help and professionalism when planning the day.

He explained that wedding’s were a relatively new venture for The Mansion House and its team of staff. With this in mind I felt it was only polite to tell what a wonderful job you did.

Many thanks for all of your help and for a wonderful day.

Kind regards

Dear Simon

Thank you so much for looking after us at our special anniversary dinner at Merchants’ Hall last night.  All our guests had an excellent time and it was a splendid way to celebrate our 30 years and look forward to the next 3 decades.  Thank you for providing the Prosecco for us too.

I hope you could hear the round of applause for you and your team during the speeches.

Thank you again for your support.

Warm regards, Sue

Dear Simon and Abi,

What a fantastic day we had at the Mansion House celebrating the wedding of our daughter Lucy
and her husband Matt.
It was the perfect venue – beautiful rooms, lovely gardens, amazing food and wonderful service.
The organisation was seamless and everyone had a marvellous time. I know you both advised and
guided Lucy and Matt through the planning stages and your expertise resulted in a magnificent occasion
that we will always remember. Thank you both so much!

Lucy & Matt’s BIG DAY — Lord Mayors Mansion house

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

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

Thank you again to you and all your staff for all your efforts on Sunday.

It was a memorable day for all of us, largely made possible by the excellent service from Parsnip Mash.

Thanks very much

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!

Thank you to you, and all your team, for making Saturday so special to Harriet and John. The food looked wonderful although somehow I only managed to have two ham sandwiches!

They had a wonderful day and Parsnip Mash played their part in making that happen.

Best regards, and thank you again,

The wedding of Harriet & John — St Georges Bristol

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.

Dear Simon

Just need to say a huge THANK YOU to you and your team for the most fantastic food at Brian & Jen’s wedding this week.  We had high expectations but you exceeded them. The food was superb, the service & attention to detail was first class. You delivered Alison’s wine glass with a panache we didn’t expect.  The feedback from everyone was so positive, the best wedding food ever. Go us! Go you!  Just so pleased we chose you for the happiest & most perfect day ever.

Thank you again
