Small wedding - Berystede Hotel

We planned a small intimate wedding reception at the Berystede, Library Room with all guests staying at the hotel. Fiona was completely understanding of the wedding we wanted and provided the best experience for us. We will forever be grateful for the afternoon/evening provided by her and her team for the wedding and also for the morning we had all eating breakfast together on the terrace the following morning. Would highly recommend the Berystede for a wedding and especially Fiona for her expert planning skills and kind listening to what we wanted (a skill not so common in the wedding industry we had found!!)

Macdonald Berystede

Had my wedding here in June, the staff were amazing and went the extra mile to make sure our day was special.
Everyone is still talking about how good the food was and what a lovely wedding.

Would definitely recommend this venue to anyone who is thinking of getting married.

We stayed from the Friday-Sunday with our wedding on the Saturday and the staff looked after us the whole time, we make use of the spa and swimming facilities and everyone who stayed enjoyed the weekend.

Beautiful venue

This was the first venue we looked at and loved it straight away. We did look at others but came back to here and wasn't disappointed.
Fiona and the team were brilliant and created a bespoke wedding package to cater to our needs. Details and planning were to the point. She even drew room plans for the day! They also have great connections with BWH Events who supplied our decorations and photo pod.

Beautiful venue with amazing photo opportunities inside and outside.

Would definitely recommend 😍

Above and beyond

I would definitely recommend the venue they were faultless from checkin to check out.
However they did recommend a third party supplier ‘bwh events’ who’s DJ I would not recommend who only followed a pre set list of music and refused to play requests from guests. Unfortunately this only reached the bride and groom’s attention at the end of the reception.

WOW, Amazing, Fantastic, Fabulous, Excellent!

We recently got married at the Berystede and I cannot thank the team enough.

Started off with the wonderful Sarah being the best wedding planner there is, no request was too big or small - she reeled us in with her bubbly personality and above and beyond approach.

Sarah then handed over to Lauren and this girl is UNREAL!!! she knows her stuff and the whole weekend was planned out to within the very last second. Lauren is an operational, logistical goddess and has everything on lock down it is a well oiled ship. Lauren worked alongside Chris and what a diamond he is, Ensuring everything was slick and wonderful.

Every single member of staff that worked on our wedding was unbelievable. Friendly, Helpful, Happy, Amazing, Fabulous. Everyone worked with so much passion and enthusiasm and they really do care which made our wedding the best day of our lives.

All of our guests were super impressed with the hotel, the staff, the food, the atmosphere, the rooms, the rates, the spa, the pool.

Wedding, Absolutely Perfect Day!

We decided to marry at the Berystede after getting engaged there and visiting for a few spa weekends. Every time we visited, the staff were very professional and attentive to our needs. Those that helped run our wedding day, Lauren and Chris, were fantastic! Lauren helped me stay calm when we had a meeting with her the day before the wedding and told me time and time again everything will be okay. . . and it was! Lauren’s attention to detail and dedication to our wedding was truly remarkable. She laboured behind the scenes from dusk till dawn to ensure our day ran perfectly. If there were any problems, she found a way to solve them quickly without needing to interrupt our celebrations. Chris also deserves a special mention. Acting as a toastmaster Chris worked tirelessly to make sure that both us and our guests were in the right places at the right times. Chris’ kind yet assertive nature was perfect to ‘herd’ our guests to where we needed them to be. Most importantly, Chris’ charisma and charm really made our day. He guided us through all of the formalities with care and professionalism, leaving us with the feeling that the Berystede truly cared about our special day. For any future brides thinking of having a wedding here, you will not regret it! The Berystede customer service is exceptional and we will certainly be back for another stay, perhaps on our first anniversary ?. Thank you to everyone at the Berystede for helping to make our day special and memorable, for all of the right reasons. We truly appreciate all your hard work.

Perfect wedding at the Berystede

We had our wedding reception at the Berystede on Friday 28th July 2017. We are still reeling from what was such a perfect day... More than we could ever have imagined. What was instrumental in making our day so perfect was the incredible staff at the Berystede hotel. From day 1, Sarah our wedding coordinator was just amazing. She listened to everything we wanted and helped us to make it happen, offering advice but not telling us what we wanted. We had a very musical wedding where we had live music playing all day, (some of it performed by ourselves!) And where some hotels instantly saw this as a logistical nightmare, nothing seemed to be too much for the staff at the Berystede. There was also an excellent contingency plan for if the weather was not on our side on the day... which is wasn't! On the day, Chris, the conference and banqueting manager acted as our MC and ran the day. He was magnificent! He made the day run so smoothly and had all staff doing everything that needed to be done brilliantly. He was so gentile and kind to our guests too which many people commented on.
The food was also of the highest standard and there was plenty of it! The morning after the Wedding, the Berystede organised for us to have a private breakfast with all of our guests, before relaxing in the spa, which was a great way to unwind after what was a amazing but busy day and a very late night!
We cannot thank the Berystede hotel and all its staff - especially Sarah and Chris - enough for our amazing wedding day.
Love Katherine and Jack (Mr and Mrs Smith!)

We chose the Berystede for our Wedding haven't stopped smiling since. Everything was absolutely perfect, from planning with the excellent Sarah McLaren to the day itself with Chris as our Master of Ceremony and all-round Supreme Being. The day went off without a hitch and Chris literally could not have done more to make our day amazing. I have never met somebody who does their job with such attention to detail and he really made it the memorable occasion it was. The other staff were flawless too, and everything ran like clockwork.

The food was fantastic and was exactly the same standard as the trial we had. From the night before when we stayed at the hotel to leaving on the Sunday with a private breakfast for our friends and family, it was just too good for words.

I really can't thank you all enough for the best day of our lives and a wonderful way to kick off a marriage.

Mr and Mrs Howes

I would just like to give some feedback from our wedding 27th June 2015. From the moment we stepped foot in the venue we loved everything about it the staff we're always smiling and polite nothing was too much trouble. Danielle ran everything very smoothly She was amazing at answering all emails promptly and alway put our minds at rest about the day.

We visited on several occasions and the staff we're always professional and gave a very personal service We we're amazed at the knowledge of the wines when we came for our menu tasting the staff definitely know the products on offer at the hotel.

The night before our wedding there was a big party of us seated outside everyone ordered food and drinks which arrived promptly and tasted delicious On the day both Dannielle and the banqueting manger were amazing they we're there adding the personal touches and we couldn't ask for anything more everything ran smoothly and too time and all our guests commented on how fab the staff we're in serving the main meal and with the buffet. I even missed the buffet in all the excitement but the manager made sure I had a sandwich before I went to bed excellent service.

On a whole we couldn't of asked for anything more for our day it was perfect in every way and we truly believe that this was because of how organised and truly amazing Dannielle and all her team are We really cannot thank you enough!

What a wonderful day...

We got married at the Berystede on 21.03.2015 and what a perfect day it was. The staff were incredibly helpful from start to finish - from the planning process to on the day and beyond. We have had endless comments about how wonderful the food was and everything was seamless on the day. If we could do it over – we wouldn’t change a thing
