Absolutely Perfect
Venue Service

By Liz, on 28 May 2014

Thank you so much to you and all the staff at the Conference Centre. Our wedding celebration on Saturday was absolutely perfect and everyone remarked on the beauty of the venue and the excellent service. Even the security guard on the door at Goldsmiths Street entrance was very helpful in watching out for taxis for us! The food was delicious and of a high quality. The chocolate dessert was definitely a winner!! All in all we were very impressed with everything and everyone and would like you to pass on our appreciation to all staff involved. Katie and Innes had a wonderful day and everything just went exactly to plan.

Dream Wedding
Venue Service

By Tiffany and Jordan, on 28 May 2014

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you ever so much for helping achieve our dream wedding day on Saturday. You were there from the beginning and dealt with all our...well 'my' crazy demands and how OCD I can get! Please can you give our thanks to all your catering staff and those that helped change around the ceremony room into the wedding breakfast, and make it look incredible and what I always envisioned! Also, please give our thanks to those behind the bar and who were there during the evening reception and dealing with our crazy family and friends! We honestly had the best day of our entire lives and you guys made all that possible. We have had nothing but compliments for the venue, service and all the food that you offered. It truely was a day to remember for the rest of our lives and so many people have said that it was the best wedding that we have ever been too!

Thank you for making our day perfect
Venue Service

By Victoria and Stephen, on 13 Sep 2012

I still find it hard to believe that so few people know about this amazing venue - so many of our guests were outstanded by it and we have received so many positive comments about the venue and the food! The value for money is outstanding compared to other venues and I truly feel we got so much more than we paid for...I would have no hesitation recommending this to other brides and grooms.

Thanks for making our wedding day so special

By Gill and Al, on 22 Jun 2012

The day was absolutely perfect, just the right mix that we wanted – fun, stylish and relaxed. The catering team were fantastic and we’ve heard nothing but praise of the food – especially the fab range of vegetarian food at the barbecue. Our special dietary people were particularly impressed that you made them special meals rather than just leaving out the bits they couldn’t eat, it made them feel extra special. We’ve had quite a few friends say that it’s the best wedding they have ever been to (and I don’t think they were just being polite!).

A hidden Gem!

Great venue!
Venue Service

By Megan and Joe, on 03 May 2012

Thank you so so much for all your hard work on the day, you and the rest of the team were fantastic and we really appreciated all your efforts into making the day so special. So many people commented on what a great venue it was so I'm sure there will be a few more bookings coming your way!

Wonderful attention to detail!
Venue Service

By Judith and Roger, on 03 Feb 2012

Thank you so much for making our Wedding day on Saturday 7th January, run so beautifully and smoothly and making it so special for us and our families. Roger and I had a wonderful day and so did our guests, who all commented on the fantastic venue. When I walked down the aisle the ‘Old Chemistry Theatre’ looked lovely; it was then transformed very efficiently for our Wedding Breakfast and ‘WOW’, it looked stunning. You then prepared the ‘Old Library’ for our evening reception, and again, it was superb. One guests comments “The best wedding I have been to”. We highly recommend The Nottingham Conference Centre as a magnificent wedding venue.

Gorgeous mix of old and new
Venue Service

By Mrs Fox, on 21 Sep 2011

I had my wedding in September 2011 at Nottingham Conference Centre and would definitely recommend it. It's a gorgeous historical old building but has been refurbished to such a high standard, it's the perfect mix. The old chemistry theatre is beautiful with amazing light so the photos of the ceremony were lovely and the food was outstanding. The staff were helpful, friendly and accomodating. The outside space is great and all my guests commented on what a great venue it is, I woudn't have changed a thing. One happy bride :)
