All of the stress was taken away from us as Darren organised everything, from the beautiful spring flowers... More

My sister raved about the Hilltop and especially Darren, so it was no surprise that she and her partner decided that the Hilltop was the perfect setting for their wedding. Unfortunately, due to unforseen circumstances, the wedding urgently needed to be rearranged. Darren worked miracles and with only 24hrs notice, gave my sister the most beautiful wedding. He made a...

Some months ago, my sister and her husband were looking to find a special venue to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with the family. They had been looking at somewhere local to them (Bexley) so that they could get cabs back home. I suggested the Hilltop in Stansted, as I knew they had rooms to stay over (even though I'd... More
