By Kimberley & Nathan, on 05 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Mar 2019
We recently had our wedding at the Mercure Parkway Leeds. I can honestly say it was the most amazing day of our lives.
Simon, George and Alex were amazing start to finish which meant I did not have to worry about a single thing on the day.
They planned the timings of the day down to a tea. They also decided to hold the drinks reception outside last minute as we had fluke sunny weather in March which was a lovely touch.
They went above and beyond to ensure we were happy with our decorations even arranging new chair covers to be delivered on the morning of the ceremony.
The food was lovely and was a perfect amount for our 110 guests that were being catered for.
The setting was very picturesque and it really is a hidden gem of a building.
Above all the communication from the team was brilliant and they made me feel very at ease during the mornings preparations.
The turn around time between the events in the day were planned perfectly and none of our guests were left waiting around for long periods of time.
The evening reception went without a hitch and the hotel organised DJ was brilliant taking our own style music and turning the evening in to a proper party.
The evening food in particular got 5 star reviews from our guests.
The rooms were lovely and private which made it a really nice stay for our guests. We really felt like we were looked after throughout our stay and preparations.
I would recommend anybody to get married here and I wish we could do it all again.
Everything the team did paid off and the day went

We'd just like to say a big thank you to you and everyone who worked over the weekend of our wedding! We had a fantastic time and I know everyone worked hard around us.
Everything the team did paid off and the day went without a hitch. All the stressing was worth it.
The ladies on reception on Saturday were particularly helpful while I was running round making sure everything was ready and they kept offering me coffee! - I think I must have looked tired...
We'd appreciate it if this could be passed along to everyone involved and we'd certainly recommend the hotel for anyone planning a wedding.

Whole day went without a Hitch!

As the mother of the bride I would like to thank and congratulate your events team and kitchen staff for making the whole day go without a hitch. Everyone was very helpful and understanding, the food was exceptional and the transitions in the room from ceremony to wedding breakfast to evening were carried out to the letter of my daughters instructions. The master of ceremonies did a wonderful job of calming the bride in the run up to the ceremony and he was very efficient and helpful every step of the way.
Thanks once again
We had an amazing day!

Chris & I would just like to say a massive thank you to you and all the staff who worked over the weekend & made our day so special. We honestly couldn’t have asked for more from them, they were amazing.
You gave us a day we will truly never forget!
By Charlotte & Scott, on 12 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2018
We would like to thank each and every one of you for the part you played in making our wedding day better than we could have possibly asked for. From start to finish the day ran seamlessly, which was down to the hard, attentive work put in by all of the staff.
Lisa, you were amazing, you always replied promptly to my stressed out emails I was sending right up until the day before the wedding. You were helpful, kind, and so professional, you really put my mind at ease, and you certainly delivered on everything we discussed. I cannot thank you enough for all of your help.
Overall myself and my husband could not have chosen a better establishment to get married in, and your team of staff should be immensely proud of themselves for the whole day!
Once again, thank you, you absolutely nailed it, and gave us a day we will truly never forget!

We recently had our wedding at the Parkway. From the start of the planning process to the morning after the wedding, each and every member of staff was fantastic. Special thank you to Lauren and Lisa in events who made sure our day was perfect in every way (also Lauren who began our planning before she moved on :) The hotel staff work so hard. The managers on the morning of the wedding couldn’t do enough for us and anything we needed was there within a few minutes.
Each meeting we had with the event staff during the planning process made sure all our questions were answered. Our day was amazing and ran so smoothly. Thank you for a perfect day.

I just wanted to jot you a quick note to yourself and your team to say how perfect you made the day for my wife and myself.
The whole team was very professional and ready to help when ever we needed you. You helped my grandma who had limited mobility and the guests were very complimentary of their rooms and the hotel.
We would gladly recommend your hotel friends and family.
Thank you again for a wonderful day
The new Mr and Mrs Ashley
A really magnificent Wedding Day
By Alan & Anne Mark, on 08 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Jul 2017
From our very first encounter with the Wedding Planner, Lauren Wilson, we felt that this is where we want our Wedding to take place. As well as managing the tasks within her role with confidence, efficiency and pleasant communication in every interaction with us, she conveyed her genuine desire to help us and ensure the day was exactly as WE wanted it to be. We felt cared for. Conversation with Lauren was always appropriately personal and professionally relaxed. Her clear communication to other teams and individuals brought about a smooth and well managed day. The implied promise "we would have nothing to worry about" was completely accurate.
The confidence we felt at the beginning was continued with a strong attitude from each member of staff we encountered; that they actually wanted to be positive, friendly and effective and make everything work for us.
The preparation of the Ballroom was exactly what we wanted and every detail we mentioned to Lewis was acted upon. Your reccommended DJ Mark Gedney was first class which really encouraged our guests' talent on the floor.
Each person who contributed to the day of wonderful memories created at "The Mercure Leeds Parkway" where nothing is too much trouble.
We send our warm thanks and sincere appreciation.
Mr & Mrs Alan & Anne Mark
Katherine and Damiens Wedding
By Kevin & Janet Wood, on 21 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Jun 2017
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for a such well organised wedding, both Becki and now Lauren could not have done any more in making this a perfect day.
On the day, Lewis was very professional in how he organised the staff both in serving the food and the drinks at the bar.
We found the food and drink to be of a high standard.
The toastmaster, Richard also played a big part in the organising of the guests, we received a lot of positive comments about how he made the day that extra bit special.
You should be proud of your staff as they showed their commitment and professionalism. If I could ask you to thank everyone involved on our behalf, for making the day the best possible, from the people in the front line to the chef's, kitchen staff, bar staff and especially, Becki, Lauren and Lewis.
Finally, we would not hesitate to recommend your hotel and all it offers.
