It was only our first day of looking for venue's and every other place was okay, but nothing was extra special to us. Then we pulled up to the English Manor and thought, well this is beautiful. Next thing we knew, Kristi was telling us that they would hold a date for us for 1... Read More week so we could think about it and I was already asking what time they were open until that day so I could call and commit to it. The customer service that we received from each employee was excellent, especially from Kristi and Denise! The day of our wedding, we had some last minute changes to the ceremony, thanks to the rain, and they waited as long as they could before they had to call it and were able to setup the indoor ceremony so quickly and efficiently, even the guests were amazed. Every single step along the way was explained to us and really made us feel comfortable with everything that was going on. The food was absolutely amazing and every single person raved about it. People still come up to me and talk about the food! We had a family friend make our cake and they were so accommodating with her dropping off the cake when was most convenient to her,even though they had 4 weddings that weekend! The entire night we didn't have to worry about anything being taken care of, we knew everything would go smoothly and it really did. We had the most amazing time at our wedding and could not have asked for a better venue/staff to work with. Thank you all for all of your hardwork and dedication. It truly meant the world to us.

I had nothing I was worried about because they were one step ahead. They made sure the grandparents were where they had to be (with mobility issues); they made sure my husband and I ate; they were at my side the moment I got a questioning look on my face; and they helped load the car at the end of the night. I really cannot say enough about the service. We were treated like royalty and I am so so grateful. The venue itself is exactly what we wanted. It is elegant yet homey. Since there is only one wedding at a time you really feel at home there. They set up the living room for a personal touch. We were lucky enough to have gorgeous weather and used the black gazebo for our ceremony (perfect) and had a spectacular outdoor cocktail hour (perfect). During our reception with 150 people and a photobooth there was plenty of room to walk between the tables and dance the night away. Our photographer also had plenty of gorgeous photo-op locations right on the property. Again...PERFECT. The food....PERFECT. :) EVERYTHING was delicious. We chose a buffet style service and not only was one thing better tasting than the next but the buffet line (or room should I say) was always full and attended by English Manor staff. We LOVE THE ENGLISH MANOR! THANK YOU!!

The English Manor was truly the perfect venue for our special day! Their grounds are stunning, the food was over the top and absolutely delicious, and the staff was a great help. Denise took all of our decorations and visions for the day and put everything in place perfectly.... Read More The EM just had a minor renovation, adding a beautiful patio and fountain to their grounds in place of a gazebo that was once there. Family and friends took nice pictures in front of it while enjoying the indoor/outdoor cocktail hour. The only minor complaint would be how the night ended. They didn't shuffle everyone out as best as they could so a lot of guests were lingering inside still, including my father, and they missed our sparkler exit. Over a month later, our family and friends are still talking about how our wedding was so much fun and how delicious the food was. Perfect choice!

As a wedding guest this venue was not ideal. I feel it is important to point this out to both prospective couples as well as wedding guests considering how much of an investment having a wedding in New Jersey is as well as attending one. A huge warning to all of the ladies... Read More attending weddings here - DO NOT wear nice shoes if you are attending an outdoor cocktail hour here. The planks of wood of the deck are so spaced far apart that your heels will fall right through. I saw countless women falling, complaining, and having their heels ruined by sliding though these cracks. It seemed as though no one wanted to move around during cocktail hour because these logistics were awful. They did not have nearly enough tables and they had a a section of tables in the grass which resulted in guests getting bitten Mosquitoes. There was no bug control or citronella candles or anything. The seats were even damp because of how humid it was due to the creek surrounding the venue. Speaking of this creek, it was pretty dismal looking. I would be upset if I booked this venue and the creek was in this condition, the water was brown and it was half dried up with sand bars, not really attractive and it was on display for all guests to see as we crossed the bridge to get to the ceremony. Of course the grass was wet and soggy so all the high heels sunk right in. Back to the cocktail hour, the soda was flat. I ordered multiple and there were no bubbles in any of them. They could have used at least one more bartender and about 3/4 way through they ran out of glasses. Once we got inside for the reception luckily they used a soda gun. I am sure there are worse venues out there and some may consider these mere details, but as a wedding guest you travel, put time, effort and money into attending and this wedding venue came up flat, no pun intended. There was no wow factor. For prospective couples, shop around and get pricing because knowing that this was probably approximately $150/pp, it was not worth it at all.
