Great! All I can say. English Turn was beyond FABULOUS. Our guests stated it was something out of a movie. Our ceremony was outdoors near the lake and the reception was held in the dining/garden room area. Jessica was our planner and readily available throughout the planning process and during the ceremony/reception. Jessica was wonderful to work with and genuinely cared about us and our wedding. Mr. Kevin was the Buffet Manager and he was wonderful. He ensured all of our food needs were met. This was absolutely the best I could've asked for.
Me and my wife Bre'ann had our wedding here on October 22 and the staff at English Turn were absolutely amazing. From the minute me and my guys got there, they were very friendly and very very helpful. Even throughout the wedding, the staff members there took care of us and made us feel like royalty. I would definitely recommend this venue for any event but especially for your big day. Be sure to ask for Jessica as she will make sure this process goes perfectly!
At first, my fiance' and I chose English Turn because he was a professional golfer and it was close to my church. But as I interacted with the staff here in the months leading up to the wedding, the true value of English Turn really shined. They were attentive, creative, organized and incredibly helpful. Then we got to their Villa on the day before, which is a beautiful home feet from the clubhouse that sleeps 16. This place was updated, spacious, comfortable and perfect for preparation pictures. Our hair and makeup vendors were in awe of the amenities they had available to them when they arrived wedding day. We were also able to hold a 1/3 of the guests in the house for an after party following the wedding. Back at the clubhouse, the rehearsal dinner was delicious and the staff was SO amazing they literally became part of the party. And it continued into the reception the next night. The venue, already a southern treasure, was transformed into my white and gold dream wedding. The food was epic and unending, the bars kept up and were accommodating with extra requests, and again, the staff truly became part of the party. Not only did we get everything we wanted out of our big day and more, our guests were wow'd by English Turn and everything it had to offer. If I had to do it again, I would start with English Turn and never look back!!
I travel from Italy for my son and daughter wedding. I want to come again to New Orleans. So nice are wedding there.
Our day was just breathtaking.. My photos are some of the nicest wedding photos I've ever seen; the backdrop of the lake and golf course are so beautiful. My guests still talk about the sunset and swans that were part of the ceremony. Also the food is great! The Gumbos and soups are better than most restaurants. Thanks to English Turn!
Thank you English Turn for your help. Jamie and Donald had a great wedding and it was beautiful.
Let me say that I planned my own wedding and was involved every step of the way. I booked this venue for the wedding because yes it is beautiful.. but also out of all of the locations that I visited they were the most welcoming and by far the friendliest. Over the course of about a year my calls were always taken and I always could count on them. All of my concerns were taken seriously and no matter what I threw at them they never dropped the ball. Special thanks to Jessica and Mr. Bankston.
So pretty... Everything was so nice and the views are wonderful. Lots of wildlife and nature. It feels like you're far away from everything but you're still in New Orleans
I was very impressed with the quality of service my son and his wife received here. I did not know what to expect here but cant imagine that they would have had a better wedding elsewhere. The wedding was so lovely.
DO IT!!! My wedding was the BEST! I was torn between English Turn and another venue. Looking back I would have had so much regret in selecting the other venue. All of my guests and my family were so impressed and ENJOYED my wedding so much.
My daughter was married here in September; It was everything I hoped it would be and so much more! The mansion is so beautiful and the staff are very attentive and have a genuine concern for the success of the event. My husband and I are so thankful to all who had a part in one of the best days of our lives.
Wedding ceremony and reception hosted by English Turn as was the rehearsal dinner. Words do not do this venue justice.. the grounds and setting are serine and breathtaking. Our wedding took place on outside on the patio overlooking the lake and fountain and came complete with swans swimming and cranes flying overhead. Thanks to the entire team especially Edwin & Jessica!
There are not of not words to express how perfect the Reception was at English Turn. We learned in less than 24 hours before the Wedding that it needed to be moved up 6.50 hours because of an impending "hurricane". That was no problem for the English Turn Staff. It was absolutely Beautiful, the food and drinks were incredible. The Staff is the Best Ever. No other venue could have "pulled this off". I want to thank Jessica, Edmon, Kevin, Randy, Sarah, Wendy, Jose and the rest of the Staff for making this the most wonderful Wedding Ever!!!!
Great venue and all around good views! Our guest said it was the best wedding they had been to. We took a star away because we didn't care for the DJ and was upset we couldn't have our own because it was a "packeged" deal. Although we gave a music list, our request weren't met. That's a major no no when you're trying to PARTY. Other than that, it all came together nicely.
Blown away with high class views inside and out! Impeccable staff that's beyond accommodating. The perfect venue with all you expect AND MORE! Made our dreams come true even better than what we had imagined. Will not disappoint and such a reasonable rate!
Jessica King, Mr. Kevin, and my Bridal attendant were awesome!!!! Like over the top awesome...this venue is on the higher price end but it's worth all of your coins...thank y'all for giving my family and I the experience of a lifetime.
My wedding at English Turn couldn't have been more perfect. It was exactly what I had imagined, and they made it come to life! I cannot thank Racheal and the staff there enough for all the hard work they put in to make my wedding a dream come true. And to my attendants that chased me around all night to make sure I had everything I needed - you both were awesome! Everyone still talks about the wedding and how it was the most beautiful ceremony they've been to and the most fun reception. Thank you guys again for everything!!
My husband and I got married at English Turn in Oct. 22 and it was absolutely everything I could have asked for. The staff catered to our every need and Michael and I didn't have to worry about a thing. When I met with Jessica a week before my wedding, I gave her my decor and told her where everything needed to go. I described my vision and the staff of English Turn made it come true. The food was EXCELLENT and the bartenders were great. My husband and I's personal attendant, Kellie, was hands down just perfect. I was so nervous before the ceremony and Kellie stayed with me and calmed me down and made sure I was okay. She never left our side the whole night and as soon one drink was gone, another was in my hand. I could honestly write a book about how helpful the staff is here, but I'm not. Long story short, if you are getting married please look into English Turn. My husband and myself will forever be grateful for our fairytale wedding.
Best decision ever! The staff at English Turn made this process pain free and enjoyable. From the moment I walked in the doors of English Turn, I was treated like a Bride. This team really knows how to roll out the red carpet. The staff was easily accessible in the planning phase and helped me plan out every detail. My wedding night was magical, just like something out of a fairy tale book. The food was amazing and the staff were so attentive to our every need. We stayed at the Villa, which is also amazing. When planning your wedding, Look No Further!!!
I tell all my friends now that the only way to go for a reception is "all-inclusive"! English Turn allowed me to not worry about things like catering or decorations because the place is beautiful and everyone works very hard to make sure that all is perfect on your night. The stress-free aspect alone to me was worth it! But the staff on the night of the wedding made it such a pleasant experience - the bride's personal attendant is very attentive and the rest of the staff were so concerned that I had enough food & drink throughout the night that I had to actually turn them down a few times! I knew a didn't have to worry about a thing at English Turn. Of course, you pay a little more for all of that service (and remember tips aren't included) but I would have had to pay and plan more for other things had they not been included. No regrets at all about English Turn!
If you are looking for the perfect venue for a wedding and/or reception, look no further. You have found it!!! The clubhouse and grounds of English Turn are the most beautiful in New Orleans. The wedding coordinator, Racheal Apken, and her staff helped guide us through every step of the planning process. My step-daughter's wedding and reception were perfect in every way!!!
Beautiful venue! Kevin & Jessica were amazing. They did everything they could to make the day perfect.
English Turn is absolutely the perfect place for a ceremony and a reception! We got married March 12, 2016 and the weather wasn't ideal for an outdoor ceremony, so we decided to move it inside. The view and pictures are stunning! Rachel Apken, the wedding coordinator, made everything perfect for us! She was so easy to work with and helpful from the get go! The food was fabulous and all of our guests complimented our choice of venue! We would recommend this to anyone for any event!
Absolutely breathtaking! The staff, especially the head planner for the club, Racheal Apken, is one of the most dedicated and efficient leaders to make your night perfect in every way. We were from out of town, and they made sure our every need was fulfilled, and helped with our floral designer to make it exceptional. Look no more!
AMAZING Venue!!!Reviewed on 11/04/2015 Janique D
