I just wanted to thank you and the team for last weekend and the support leading up to it. The Baltic was the perfect location - the room looked great, thank you for getting everything in place. I know our guests loved the views throughout the evening, it added to the great atmosphere and relaxed vibe.

Thank you very much for all your help and support during Vic and James's wedding on Saturday. The whole day went absolutely to plan including the sun making an appearance! The level 1 room looked stunning, the food and particularly the service was excellent.

The organisation and help we received from you to enable everything to run so smoothly was fantastic. It was a perfect evening and was exactly how we envisaged it. I have attached some images from the evening which I am happy for you to use. We will certainly be recommending the Baltic to our friends and work colleagues.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and everyone that helped make Saturday the most amazing day. Every single person working on the day was great - so friendly and happy and helpful ... It made the day so easy and fun and all our guests commented on what an amazing venue we had chosen Including the staff.

A truly incredible day we will never forget
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs F, on 15 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2016

All of the team from beginning to end were amazing and we can't thank you all enough. Lots of the guests were commenting not just how fabulous the venue is but about the staff too and how great they all were. We are so thankful to you for coordinating everything and looking after us from booking to now, Melanie and the restaurant team too were lovely. The name of the evening function manager has completely slipped our minds which we feel bad about as she was so great, looking after Mark and me specifically as well as all the guests. You all made our dreams come true and we're still feeling on cloud 9 thinking of all the lovely elements of the day.

Thank you for giving is such a fantastic day!
Venue Service

By Heather and Jonathan, on 15 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2016
