Karin & Simon

27th October 2021

From enjoying flights out of Goodwood Aerodrome, to making numerous visits to our Motorsport events, Goodwood was the perfect location for Karin & Simon’s big day in June 2021.


“We both enjoy new experiences and love that Goodwood offer so many. We’ve enjoyed flying together in a Cessna out of Goodwood Aerodrome and along the South Coast. We’ve had various days at the races and over more recent years, joined as GRRC members and loved Members’ Meetings, Revival and Festival of Speed. Every experience has been fabulous and we know that’s down to great organisation and putting ‘experience’ front and centre of all that Goodwood does.

“We always wanted our fox red Labrador, Bosun, to be a part of our special day. The Kennels is such a beautiful venue and a truly lovely atmosphere. Add to the mix fabulous staff, wonderful food and drink and details that make our four-legged family members as welcome as anyone else… it made perfect sense. We had a tour of the venue and we were sold. Our dogs are family and we wouldn’t dream of not having Bosun there.


“The theme of our wedding was relaxed and carefree. It was all about including our four-legged family. We wanted Bosun to walk me down the ‘aisle’ and for our nearest and dearest to bring their dogs too. Our original wedding party would have been 30 people and six dogs. Due to restrictions, we reduced to 14 people and four dogs… a pretty good ratio we think!

“Rhiannon was fabulous, attentive and helpful. We had to reschedule several times due to the various lockdowns, but finally made it, 4th time lucky! The menu and wine tasting was sublime and we felt very special.

“We arranged for champagne, Pimms and canapés an hour ahead of the wedding ceremony, to give us time to relax and mingle with guests. Food and drinks were delicious and perfectly timed and all special dietary requirements were fully catered for without any fuss or incident.


“Rhiannon totally went above and beyond on the day as she drove the mini bus and our guests to/from The Kennels. Janey was our ‘chief of staff’ on the day and was wonderful. Discreetly checking with us on timings and making sure that whenever we needed to step away for Registrars or photographs, that there were a couple of fresh glasses of champagne waiting for us as we returned to our guests. Our Sommelier was the epitome of discretion and professionalism.  Couldn’t have asked for more from them or anyone else leading up to and on the day.

“The whole day was just perfect and came together without a single hitch and I put it down to the detailed planning and immaculate support and service from Rhiannon, Janey and whole team. The sommelier was super too - very attentive and friendly. They made the dream team and our wedding day as perfect as it could ever be. Ultimately grateful and thankful to them for making perfect memories.”
