“The team at the Mercure Bradford Bankfield Hotel couldn’t have been more helpful when arranging our rather unconventional short-ish notice wedding. From the start we knew we wanted to do something a bit different and Claire worked with us to create a bespoke package that catered for not only our quirky ceremony, but also for a large number of people with food allergies and intolerances. That wouldn’t have been possible without a flexible and open minded approach from the venue throughout the planning period (which was only a couple of months!) and then on the day itself. The food was absolutely amazing and plentiful – even for our guests with specific dietary requirements. We were able to arrange something that was unique, full of character and what many of our guests described as “the most memorable wedding” they’d ever attended.” Richard & Tori MurieSent on 03/06/2019
