Love Letters




Dear Janet

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We are so appreciative of everything that you and your team have done for us both on the day to the lead up to the wedding.

When we first met you and you said it is something special to be a Hopewood couple, it didn’t mean anything at the time. We now know - it’s a feeling that can’t be explained. We feel so honoured to be a Hopewood couple. It’s a day we will cherish forever.

Every wedding we have been to, you can always remember one or two stand out things about the venue and ceremony. Our guests have not stopped raving about the breathtaking venue, the amazing quality of food, the exceptional service, the floral arrangements, music and the hosts. They loved that both Tim and yourself joined the festivities. It brought such a personal touch to the day.

The success of the day (and rave reviews) are thanks to you and your guidance. We really appreciate your input and knowledge through the whole process. We know it’ll be a day that our friends and family will be talking about for awhile.

The wedding was so much more than we could have ever asked for.

Thank you once again so much for your kindness and assistance throughout what seems to be a stressful time for most couples.

Dear Janet

Apologies for such a delayed reply but we just returned this week from our honey moon.

The only feedback I have is that Hopewood House, and all the staff including yourself were absolutely incredible. I can’t thank you enough for your help and support throughout the process, and the day itself could not have flowed any better.

All of our guests commented on what a beautiful venue Hopewood House is and how incredible the food/staff/flow of events were. We could not be happier.

All the best in the future and thank you for making our day truly exceptional.

What a wonderful wedding - such happy memories that will last a lifetime!!

We are still all basking in the joyous day made all the more special by you and the team at Hopewood House!! It really was the most perfect weekend!!

Thank you Janet for all you did - I know you went the extra mile for the happy couple and their guests and it did not go unnoticed - my New Zealand friends are still raving about your magnificent property and your wonderful hospitality.

Hopewood House is really New South Wales (if not Australia’s) best hidden secret - I do hope we will have the occasion to visit your beautiful home again!!

My now, 3rd mother :)

Thank you for absolutely everything!

We know we are crazy all the time but you understood us right away and allowed our manic behavior to continue. We love you!

Unfortunately for you we will continue to visit…

And we have to have a proper dinner very soon!

Dear Janet

An earnest and heart felt thank you for all that you and your wonderful staff did to make the wedding so very memorable.

Your act of kindness in allowing the wedding guests to spend time in your home was greatly appreciated. Could you also thank Tim for that kind gesture. The presence of some of your children assisting on the day enhanced the feeling of family that is so important to us all. The professionalism of all of your staff prior to and on the day was exceptional. But a special thank's to you personally, for all that you did to make it all feel so very special.

Thank you again and I am sure that our paths will cross one day.

Dear Janet

Thank you so very much for making our BIG day more than we could have dreamed of. Hopewood House is simply stunning, and you have made it so.

I personally felt belessed to be invited into your family home, an oasis of calm on an exciting day. It truly is a privilege to be married in such a beautiful place. Our guests loved it! All the details you took care of, flowers in the restrooms, candles on the stairs etc – didn’t go unnoticed, thank you.

I love showing people our beautiful photos and singing the praises of Hopewood.

Thank you so very much for everything.
