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. The day was sunny and warm and we were lucky enough to have canap├ęs 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.

We have just had our Daughters wedding reception at the Bedford Hotel. It was absolutely perfect. The staff were so helpful and accommodating which really helped make it such a memorable day. The food was superb. The room was stunning and the whole day was so relaxed and enjoyable. Would really recommend you check this hotel out if you are looking for a wedding venue. The setting is just right but it was the staff that go the extra mile to make sure they day is perfect that really makes the difference.
