Wedding May 11th 2019 - Outstanding venue !
By Leanne & Alan, on 22 May 2019Date of Wedding - 11 May 2019
Our story started when the venue we originally booked in 2017 for our 11th May Wedding cancelled on us 5 weeks before our wedding ! PANIC ! Thanks to the power of Facebook we found this amazing venue and our new path to happiness began. Jessica could not be any more helpful when she found out our story, so supportive and calm, I couldn't believe they had availability on the same day (11th) and the new registrars also had a slot for us. IT WAS FATE ! By the time we met Jessica at Holiday Inn MK East it was around 4 weeks until our big day, nothing was too much trouble and everything went so smoothly from start to finish with the new preparations. I didn't have to worry about anything at all. Our big day arrived and we were then looked after by Shadonna and the team... I had no worries about anything ! the day went like a heavenly dream and we was looked after from start to finish. We can't think of words powerful enough to thank them for such a special day,
In the end we was so thankful the original venue cancelled on us, we had the wedding of our dreams at this venue. Thank you Holiday Inn MK East and all of the team that looked after us, special thanks to Jessica and Shadonna, we will never forget everything you did for us. x

Beautiful venue, lots of spaces for inside photos and quiet spots away from the hubbub.
The toast master we had on the day was amazing, very reassuring, knew her stuff and got everything sorted so you didn't have to worry about a thing.
Amazing Wedding Service
By Gemma & Aaron Burns, on 07 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Nov 2018
We are so happy with our decision to marry here. Our designated wedding co-ordinator throughout the planning process (Katie) was absolutely brilliant and so helpful. She always responded to my emails in a professional and efficient manner. Our toast master on the day of our wedding (Jenna) was also fantastic and made sure everything went smoothly. I had chosen a starter that I knew I wouldn't like but my guests would. On the day when she saw I wasn't eating it she went and got me an alternative. She also catered for one of my guests who didn't like the pudding. She truly couldn't have worked harder or been more helpful. I hope all future brides and grooms are as lucky to have these lovely ladies as we were. It was an amazing day from start to finish and one l will never forget,

Wedding Day 8th September 2018
By Emily & Rich, on 19 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018
We had the most perfect wedding at the Holiday Inn MK East. We knew from the minute we walked into the building we wanted this venue. We loved it even more after it had been refurbished. The rooms are absolutely stunning! We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the venue and it ran so smooth from start to finish. Absolutely all members of staff were super helpful and friendly. I can’t stress enough how amazing Shadonna was though!! She was absolutely amazing the day before and after the wedding and even more so the day of the wedding.. she was there whenever we needed anything and nothing seemed too much at all. She was very understanding and knew exactly what was happening and when therefore we did not have to worry about a thing all day. Thank you!! We had the chicken as a main for the wedding breakfast and have had everyone come back and mention how delicious the food was, The bar staff were super friendly and looked like they was having a good time too, we didn’t see them ever without a smile on their faces especially a young woman with blond hair (so sorry I don’t remember your name) she was super friendly and I had several people say how friendly she was and enjoyed a chat with her. Thank you to all staff for everything, we had such a perfect day xx

From the moment we walked into the venue, we knew that this was for us. We met the lovely Katie on our first day and put down the deposit straight away, then the fun began. Numerous emails back and forth and various visits later, the day before our wedding was here. The staff were fantastic and helped us with all (there was a lot) our decorations. The day could not of gone any more perfect, I still look back on the day and cry as to how happy I was. during the evening I became ill and the receptionists helped me to my room and and made sure I was OK, after a sleep I danced the rest of the night away. We want to thank our wonderful toast master too (unfortunately her name slips our minds) everything during our day went perfectly. once again thank you to all the wonderful staff at the Holiday inn Milton Keynes east, and sorry for the mess. If you want a small or big wedding, they cater for it all. We can't recommend this venue enough

By Philippa Bevan, on 13 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2018
Myself and my husband got married here a couple of weeks ago on 31.08.2018, and it was a fabulous day! We had the ceremony here followed by the wedding breakfast and our evening do. We were so very impressed with this venue which we were recommended to and were so pleased we held our special day here.
Laura did a great job helping us plan our big day and Shadonna on our Wedding day was amazing.
We had so many lovely comments regarding how lovely the venue was, how friendly the staff were and how excellent the food was.
Thank you so much for giving us the perfect day!

Thank you so much for helping make our wedding day so special! Katie did a great job helping us plan and organise the big day, and Sadhana our toastmaster, went beyond to make our day amazing! Everything went to plan...even with it being one of the hottest days of the year! Thank you to all of the staff for making everything so perfect as a venue, the ceremony, the evening reception and including the gorgeous food (sit down meal and evening BBQ)! Thanks!

Wedding Reception Party
By Sasha & Jason Childs, on 27 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jun 2018
My now hubby and I got married in Italy in May 2018 and wanted to hold a reception party back in England for our extended family and friends.
We live near Milton Keynes and had family and friends travelling from various locations in England, Ireland and Scotland, so wanted a convenient location for everyone.
We picked the Holiday Inn MK Inn East as it ticked so many boxes for us - location, cost, quaint-ness of the building, helpful staff and being able to tailor things for us.
All along the process (we booked the venue in May 2017 for our party in June 2018) we could visit when we wanted, ask as many questions as we needed to (and get prompt replies) and on the day everything went smoothly for us. The hotel holds regular wedding fairs which are really helpful and can help with supplies (which you can book though the hotel or independantly) - you can also use independent suppliers if you wish.
We used the Carringron Suite for the party which had it's own bar and had doors leading out to the courtyard which was lovely.
Two outstanding ladies at the hotel made the whole process so easy for us and answered all our questions - Katie Chopping (who was our contact from our initial enquiry about using the hotel right up to the day of the wedding) and Shadonna (who was our 'toastmaster' at the party and kept things to time etc.
Both ladies knew their stuff inside out and helped make the evening run smoothly and such a wonderful time.
We are so pleased we used this venue for our party and would defintiely recommend it.
Wish we could do it all again!

We had our wedding reception here following on from our church service. The venue it’s self is stunning. Every one of our guests commented on how nice the food was and the staff were so friendly and made sure our special day went off without any hiccups. Highly recommend this venue and we will certainly keep it in mind with other special events in the future
