By Jo & Armando, on 14 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2018

Sorry it has taken so long to contact you, it's taken us a while to come down from our amazing day! We had a truly fabulous time and all of our guests have said that it's the best wedding they've been too! So many have said "I never cry at weddings, but I cried at yours!" Thank you so much for making the day go so smoothly, I did not feel stressed at all! Thank you for making it so easy to incorporate so many of our unusual requests! I have attached a couple of photos that show everyone having an amazing time.

Venue Service

By Emma & Darren Minnok, on 02 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2017

Thank you Balmer Lawn Hotel! Me and my husband have recently just celebrated our wedding with you and what an amazing day it was! Kate our wedding coordinator was great, so helpful with everything we wanted to know and very accommodating to all that we wanted to make our day so special. The staff were so friendly and helpful which made our stay even better. I stayed the night before the wedding and everyone was so kind wishing us well. There were also a quite a few children staying at the hotel and the staff were brilliant with them! We couldn't of asked for a better place to celebrate our marriage. We cannot recommend the Balmer Lawn highly enough.

You made our day so special
Venue Service

By Kim & Jamie Ward, on 02 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Feb 2017

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our day so special and we loved every minute. The rooms were exactly how I had imagined and I really didn’t need to worry at all. All of our guests were so impressed with the hotel, a couple stayed for 2 nights and said it was the best hotel and wedding they had ever been to (they have been to many). Thank you for all your help in a short space of time we had. Best Wishes Kim & Jamie

The Most Perfect & Wonderful Day
Venue Service

By Nikki & James Rickets, on 18 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 01 Oct 2016

We have had the most perfect and wonderful day. The food was stunning. Our vegan guest said it was the best meal he ever had. We worked hard making sure we got the right menu that catered for all our guests and the Chef was incredibly helpful and patient at making sure we achieved this. Thank you Chris! Our day was simply the best day of our lives which is down to the hotels brilliant staff who made it run so incredibly well. There wasn't one minor thing that wasn't right. Kate the Wedding planner was super efficient, helpful and patient when dealing with a slightly neurotic bride!!!! I had a couple of wobbles about things and Kate reassured me and answered my endless emails. Kate sat on the office floor with me going through all the wedding bits listening to my many instructions and putting me at ease. You create an image in your head of how you want your day to be and Kate made that happen. I even asked her to make the rain stop and she did!! We had torrential rain and thunderstorms in the morning and sunshine in the afternoon!! She has skills!!!! The banqueting manager Slav was just fantastic. The team did an amazing job and worked incredibly hard and a very long day for which we are so grateful for. Also thank you to the wonderful and helpful reception team too! Every staff member made us feel like VIP's and nothing was too much trouble. My only complaint is that it's over......!!!!! What a weekend. The Balmer Lawn will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

It was everything we had imagined
Venue Service

By Shelly & Lee Monger, on 18 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2016

Kate the wedding Coordinator was so helpful in the lead up to the wedding, always quick to reply to my many emails and answered all my questions and met all our requests. I stayed at the Balmer lawn along with some of my family the night before the wedding, which meant that along with my bridesmaids I got ready on the morning of the wedding at the hotel. Everyone was so helpful, our room was lovely with plenty of room for us all to get ready. The main room was set up exactly how I imagined, with all our requests met- Kate didn't seem to mind when I gave her a to do list of how we wanted everything the day before the wedding- and the team did a great job of making our vision a reality. The food was amazing, from the canapés (which my husband and I unfortunately didn't get chance to eat but our guests raved about) and the wedding breakfast, which went down a treat with everyone! We went for a hog roast in the evening which was so yummy too! The function manager was excellent. I asked him at the last minute to bring out the kids dinner earlier then planned and he got this done without an issue, and later on in the evening got some games out for the kids to play without me even requesting it. The suite that my husband and I had for the evening of the wedding was gorgeous too. Would highly recommend Balmer lawn hotel, and we look forward to celebrating anniversaries there in the future.

Over whelmed at how magnificent it was
Venue Service

By Kelsie & Steve Young, on 18 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2016

'My husband and I chose Balmer Lawn Hotel as our wedding venue and are completely over-whelmed at how magnificent it was! The surroundings are picturesque and the building very grand. The moment we arrived there during our search for the perfect venue, we fell in love with it. The wedding coordinator Kate was so helpful, friendly & patient. She listened to everything we said and made the entire process stress free. I stayed the night before the wedding & had an evening meal with family & friends who were also staying. The meal was truly delicious and the service impeccable. Our guests are still raving about the food & service. So many have said that it was the best food they ever had at a wedding! (We chose the BBQ option). The staff throughout the entire wedding could not do enough for us and always with a smile. They ensured that they not only treated my husband & I like royalty - but also each & every one of our guests! Absolutely Fantastic! Thank you all
