Unforgettable Wedding

We had such an amazing and memorable wedding in January 2022. Laura and the team helped the day to go seamlessly. The staff were very attentive on the day and everything went so smoothly. The food we chose was was prepared, cooked and presented so well. Everyone said how delicious it was. The atmosphere at Hotel du Vin was so welcoming and they were very accommodating with how we wanted the room set out. We would highly recommend Hotel du Vin as a place to celebrate your wedding. We will never forget our day. Amazing ❤️

Thank you

Thank you so much for everything you and the staff at the hotel have done for us.

We had the most amazing day, it couldn’t have gone any better.

Thank you for the champers, card and treats in our room, it was such a lovey touch.

We’ll be back very soon for dinner in the restaurant and the plan is to come back every year to celebrate or anniversary.
Thanks again.

Perfect Wedding Day

We had a perfect day. Planning our wedding was a daunting task but from the first time we met Stacey we had confidence that our wedding was in good hands. She asked the questions we didn't know we should be asking and was happy to go the extra mile to create a day personal to us.

On the day itself Carl organised everything in a decreet, dynamic and unobtrusive way. The food and service was excellent and several of our guests commented on the excellent venue and staff.
The icing on the cake was Rose presenting us with Bucks Fizz at breakfast the next day.

It really did feel like the whole team was there for our day. We thoroughly recommend Hotel du Vin as a wedding venue.
