Our Wedding Day at the Claverton Hotel
Kerry at the Claverton was lovely and so helpful to us as a couple. We met with him just after we got engaged last May and he talked us through many aspects of the venue and what they could offer us.
We fell in love with the Claverton and knew it was just right for us as we were only going to have a very small number of guests, and that was no problem for Kerry.
We were given a quote for exactly what we wanted and so we booked the venue the same day.
We met with Kerry a few times over the course of last year on the lead up to our wedding in December and we were always given the time needed to discuss what we wanted. He was always organised and kept a folder of our requests.
It was a very lovely surprise for us that our wedding package with the Claverton also came with the most loveliest of Toastmaster's, Paul Mitchell. He was such an amazing addition to our wedding day, and we highly recommend Paul. Having a Toastmaster on your wedding day to help with the general overseeing of the day is a must!
We were allowed to decorate our ceremony room the night before the wedding, and Kerry had made sure his staff had already put out the chairs for us to decorate. There was the option to have our ceremony outside in the pagoda but as we were having a winter wedding we didn't want our guests to get cold. It is a lovely option for couples to have their ceremony there in a spring/summer setting though!
The landscaped gardens are beautiful and there are so many places for beautiful photo opportunities with each other. This was one of the things we loved most about the Claverton.
Me as the bride, my mum, my sister and her children who were my bridesmaids and flower girl, all stayed in the family room at the Claverton the night before so we could all be there to get ready in the morning. This was most lovely, and we all had breakfast together the morning of the wedding before we began to get ready. The breakfasts at the Claverton are also top notch!
The wedding breakfast was lovely and all of our guests raved about the food - there are 3 menu options that you are able to chose, form Rustic, Classic, to Deluxe. We went for Classic and and had 3 choices per menu section. Gluten free and vegan options were also no problem.
The buffet Kerry's chef prepared for our guests that evening was amazing, there was so much food I'm sure it didn't all get eaten but it was very delicious.
Overall our wedding day was wonderful, and an experience us and our guests will never forget. Thank you Kerry, and all your staff at the Claverton for making our special day so wonderful.
We are forever grateful!
