Just unbelievable planning!

We chose North Lakes for many reasons, Jen is super organised, the venue is stunning, it has rooms onsite for guests and is also dog friendly! We started planning 16 months prior and throughout the whole process Jen was there for us.

I can’t say I was probably the easiest bride to deal with as I always have 1000 questions but Jen was super friendly and attentive.

On the day of our wedding I was absolutely blown away by how it looked, everything came together perfectly, the day went off without a hitch too! Everything was timed absolutely spot on and our guests have not stopped talking about how well it went.

I would highly recommend this venue for so many different reasons!

Best day ever

We had our wedding here in May. We'll were do i start. Jen was amazing and made us feel relaxed all day. My nana is 78 and she had doubts of it been a long day with with her having a room meant she go take of and relax for a while. The food was amazing people still coment to this day how much the could each it all again. The grounds are amazing for photos and all the staff are on hand 24/7 . Nothing is to much for them. They made me feel welcome by setting me out the red-carpet and a glass of champers. I wish we could do it all over again I would not change a thing.

Everything we wanted for our Wedding

We had our wedding booked with the hotel 4 years in advance because we knew it had everything we wanted from our wedding venue, from it's style to the incredibly practical location and accommodation for our guests. From our first meeting with Jen, she couldn't do enough for us and this continued throughout the 4 years of planning. She gave us the freedom to plan our day exactly how we wanted, but was also there to provide advice on anything we needed from styling, to timings of the day, to suppliers she'd worked with in the past. The day itself was even more perfect than we ever could have dreamed, running so smoothly from beginning to end, thanks to the incredible work done by Jen and the team behind the scenes. From the minute we arrived the day before the wedding, they were on hand to collect everything from us (favours, welcome sign, guest book, etc). We discussed our wishes for everything with Jen in the run-up, so it was as simple as dropping everything off with the team and everything being exactly where it needed to be on the day, without us worrying about it. We can't thank them enough for helping us pull off our dream wedding day.

Your team were amazing, nothing was too much trouble.
We are so glad we chose your hotel, the wedding decorations, and table setting was beautiful.

Jen was fantastic

“We hadn’t heard a lot about the North Lakes when we first visited but were blown away when we walked through the door at their wedding show. Jen took the time to chat through their wedding packages with us and even gave us a tour of the whole hotel (and then another one a few weeks later when I brought my parents back) We knew straight away it was the only wedding venue for us.

We chose the “complete package” which took care of everything and saved a lot of hassle. From start to finish the wedding planning process was seamless with Jen’s help. She’s so calm and just knows all things wedding inside out! I think I was quite a chilled out bride (possibly too chilled at times!) so it was great to have the odd nudge from Jen to remind me of bits I might have overlooked and reassuring to know she’s just at the other end of the phone or email to answer any questions. We also used quite a few of the hotel’s partnered suppliers including Flowers by Lisa who went above and beyond arranging last minute bouquets for our mothers – which she even dropped off for us on the school run!

We can’t thank Jen and her team enough, in fact, every member of the North Lakes’ staff were fantastic from the reception team to housekeeping and the bar staff. We can’t recommend this hotel enough and can’t wait to come back and stay again for our first anniversary!

From the organisation and attention to detail was brilliant. The decorations of the hotel fitted with our theme perfectly. We are unable to recall the name of the master of ceremonies but we would like you to hand on our gratitude. She was always available when we had a question and really helped the day go smoothly. She was lovely as well as all the staff. Our guests have all complimented the hotel, the food and the friendliness of the staff.

Thank you for a great wedding day. The whole thing went like clockwork and everyone I spoke to thought the hotel and staff did a brilliant job. Clare and her team did a great job at the wedding breakfast and the evening function without being too intrusive. Bride’s Father, Kim Hunter

Everything was very professionally conducted and the day ran like clockwork. All the staff involved in the wedding were excellent, and many of our guests commented at how efficient and friendly the waiting and bar staff were. Our own special thanks go to Jen, the wedding co-ordinator, who looked after us perfectly, and always made us feel as though our plans were under control. We also feel a mention needs to go to Claire (I think that was her name) who managed the event on the day. She made sure everything flowed perfectly, and kept us both very relaxed about the day. We both thought she controlled the day brilliantly and she is a definite asset to your team.

We just wanted to drop you a line to say how much we enjoyed our daughters wedding at the weekend. A mention to Claire and her team who looked after us on the day. She was so professional in the running of the wedding and we cannot praise her enough for keeping the day running smoothly. We were able to relax in the knowledge that all the guests were in the hands of a great team. Thank you to all in the hotel for giving us a day we will never forget. Nigel and Joan Hardie (Bride’s Parents)

We would just like to say a great big thank you to everyone who was involved in our recent wedding. We had a fantastic day and everyone else did as well. The room was decorated beautifully, the buffet was brilliant, everyone loved it, and the whole event exceeded our expectations. We would have no hesitations in recommending the North Lakes to anyone looking for a Wedding Venue. Thanks again for all your hard work.
