My daughter chose The Bedford hotel for her wedding reception. throughout the planning we were well looked after by Robynne the event organiser. We chose the Bedford as we had friends and family attending from all over the country and required somewhere with rooms to stay and also somewhere that would accommodate 90 plus guests for a sit down meal and 150 for the evening reception.Sent on 28/09/2015
The day was sunny and warm and we were lucky enough to have canapés and welcome drinks in the beautiful garden. The reception room was immaculately presented and we were able to go in the day before to add own touches.
The meals were delicious and warm - quite a feat when they were catering for so many. All our guests complimented us on their meals and the service and we were lucky enough to be able to offer them a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 desserts with their invitation. Leanne who managed the catering side of the day was amazing, friendly, efficient and professional as were all the staff, even when guests proceeded to let off party poppers and mini frisbees to "break the ice" at the start of the meal.
Thank you a potentially stressful but delightful time was made extra special by this venue and its wonderful staff.
