    A Massive Thank You

    We wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone involved in the planning and preparation for our wedding on New Year’s Eve 2018.
    From the very first meeting and initial booking the professional service was evident. Steph, the wedding co-ordinator was particularly helpful and ensured that all our ideas moved from plans to reality.
    We decided to hold the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception all in the Cavendish ballroom and we were amazed how quickly the staff transformed the room to the next event. All of the small details that we had wanted were put into place and the room looked absolutely stunning. A big thank you to the outside companies, West Country Wedding Planner for the hire of the giant LOVE letters that lit up the room and to Sophie Astridge for the floral arrangements she added to the candelabras supplied by the hotel. The staircase at the centre of the hotel proved to be an amazing backdrop for our professional photographs by Helen Court Photography.
    With it being NYE everybody in our wedding party was up for a great day & evening, the food was great and the drinks package was tailored for our personal wishes.
    Between the wedding breakfast and the evening reception the use of the Nelson’s bar was a great success as it meant our guests could mingle and although a busy evening in the hotel, everything felt very private and personal.
    We would thoroughly recommend the Mercure Rougemont Hotel as a wedding venue as we had an absolutely amazing day and were made to feel very special by all the staff.

    Our Amazing Wedding

    Dear Mercure Rougemont Staff
    I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you all so much for everything you did for our amazing wedding.
    The venue is so spectacular and catered for the British weather, as we had a lot of photos taken on the spectacular stair case. We were however, so lucky to have nice weather and was able to take advantage of the Northernhay grounds across the road.
    From the initial meeting, right the way through until the day, all staff were so attentive, professional & ensured our day ran so smoothly. The food was phenomenal, and all guests complimented us on the choice of menu. The drinks package was designed for us & exceeded all expectations.
    The day was the best day of our lives & you all contributed to that, we had a lot of guests staying on the night of the wedding & even down to ensuring we all had breakfast together was such a nice touch.
    As the bride I was made to feel the most important person there on the day & Mark my husband was blown away with the service you all provided, we could not fault anything at all.
    Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for everything.
    With love & Best Wishes
    Mark & Racheal

    Wedding Planning Thanks

    I just wanted to thank you for the great service you gave us for our wedding in April. Your care, flexibility, organisational skills, clear communication and understanding of what we wanted gave us exactly the kind of event we'd imagined. You always made yourself available for meetings with me and it was evident that you were keen to meet our needs from day one. Also, thanks for being so understanding when I had to postpone the original wedding date. The fact that the event ran smoothly meant that it was memorable for all the right reasons.

    Please also mention to the waiting staff on that day that they struck just the right note in being available for us whilst also giving us the space to relax. The food was also great.

    Thank you

    I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so very much for our wonderful day on Saturday. We had the best day ever, we had many many remarks of how lovely the hotel is and even more how friendly and welcoming your staff are, nothing was too much bother for them, the food was amazing as well. The little touches like the welcoming fruit and drink and the strawberries made us feel so very special. Please can you pass on our thanks to all the staff but especially vicky as she was brilliant.

    Perfect day

    Couldn't have chosen a better wedding breakfast/reception venue.
    Claire and all the staff were so helpful and friendly and made sure every detail of the day was just how we wanted it. Everything ran so smoothly and the food was fantastic!
    Would definitely recommend the thistle for any event.
    Thank you for an amazing day, it was everything we dreamt of and more :-)

    Best day of our lives

    We held our wedding at Thistle Exeter this year and I felt i had to write to tell you of our experience and how wonderful it was.
    Claire Crowther was our co-ordinator and she truly is amazing !!!! She kept in touch with us the whole time, was so reassuring ( even as time was getting closer and i started to panic !!) and she just gets things done. On the day of the wedding she was there from 6am making sure everything was ok, and it really did go like clockwork. she goes above and beyond all expectations and is always smiling.
    Theres no way in which we can thank her enough for everything she did for us, its was the best day of our lives and without the service we received from Claire it wouldnt have been such an amazing experience for us, and our friends and family.
    The food was fabulous, everyone commented on it and said how delicious it was, There is not one single thing that has been a negative through the whole thing and your entire team did a fantastic job, but again a massive thank you to Claire, she really is an asset to your hotel, which comes highly recommended by us.
    Many thanks from a very happy couple
