Dear Jeffrey,

Thank you so, so much for all your help, advice and effort in making our wedding the best day of our lives. I never realised how stressful planning a wedding could be: you played a massive part in reducing some of that!

Friars Court is the most beautiful venue to get married in and our ceremony under the Rose Arbour was more magical than I had ever imagined. From the moment I first arrived to visit Friars Court I was struck by how gorgeous it is and you are continually improving it. Thank you so much for the lanterns! They were so gorgeous. And for all the big and little jobs you did to make sure the day went smoothly. Towards the end, as the day got nearer, I really felt as though you were happy to do whatever we needed to ensure we had the perfect day. Thanks also for your recommendations, in particular Sadlers Catering. The day would not have been the same without them. The food was delicious and, again, Paul and Sietske were happy to accommodate all our wishes!

So many of our guests were amazed by how beautiful Friars Court is and wondered how we had found such a lovely place tucked away in Oxfordshire. We were very lucky to find you and to get married in a such a unique and enchanting place.

Thank you also for all your help in preparing the Iranian ceremony and parts of the wedding, I know my mum is very gratful as well! 

Finally, it was lovly getting to know you and one day we may just have to come and visit to reminisce about our wedding wedding day.

Friars Court was the only venue we looked at, and we fell in love with it immediately as the chance of being able to get married outside in the Rose Arbour was something that was really important to us. What I wasn't aware of though when we made the choice was all the additional advice, support, guidance and style that you offered us, Jeffrey, all in incredibly good humour. Weddings by their nature can be incredibly expensive and I was never concerned that there was any chance that we may have been paying through the nose. You were incredibly sensitive to our wishes and our budget. Your suggestions often starting with, "I've been thinking and I may perhaps approach this from another angle......" were most welcome. People have asked me how on earth I managed to arrange such a lovely wedding while also working full time and looking after a family - the answer is because of Jeffrey and his prompts, "have you thought about....". Thank you so very much for the most memorable day, it went without hitch and we loved it. Your floral and catering recommendations also most gratefully received (and perfect) - all of you work so brilliantly as a team. Just fab. Thank you a million times.

To Jeffrey,

Thank you very much for letting us have our ceremony at your beautfiul home, we couldn't think of a more perfect setting. Your advice was always "spot on" and very much appreciated. Friars Court will always have our highest recommendation as will you as a wedding planner. We very much enjoyed our time planning with you and have the happiest of memories of our big day, which we will cherish.

Wishing you & Charles all the best,

Mr. & Mrs Champ

We selected Friars Court as we wanted a venue where we could tailor make a wedding that suited us. Everybody who visits Friars Court will instantly be in love with the venue, it is simply beautiful and romantic. We knew, however, that to make it work finding the right suppliers were key. Jeffrey Cleaver of Silver Pear Weddings was fantastic at recommending the best caterers; Sadlers Catering who are locally based and know Friars Court inside out, and Scents of Occasion who supplied the most beautiful wedding arrangements I have ever seen. With the venue, Jeffrey's styling genius, Sadlers delicious food and Cindy's marvellous flowers, we can honestly say that we had the most magnificent day and with the help of all the suppliers the whole experience as stress-free as a wedding can be!
