A great Disney themed wedding
Venue Service

By Kelly and Martin, on 28 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

It was amazing and just perfect for us. We had a few additional items like a photo booth; the staff were very happy to help us plan where these would go. The staff would make space for anything we wanted. The room was set up just the way we wanted it, we were able to play our favourite music during the meal. They catered for people with allergies and dietary requirements. I was gluten free, had a great meal. However, I wasn’t catered for when we went for the menu tasting. Children were only given a 2 course meal instead of a 3 course meal but with orange juice as a starter which parents complained about. The disco was great, played all the music we wanted. A problem we had was some people weren’t aware of the cake cutting announcements and when slices were available. We had a lot of gifts given to us, so many the table got so full that people couldn’t see the guest book etc. When asked the hotel staff moved the gifts straight away to a locked room. We didn’t have to help clear up which was amazing. We were promised a memory box which we are yet to receive and its been 6 weeks. The communication before the wedding wasn’t great. One meeting was planned a few days before the wedding and the person wasn’t there, we met with others which was fine but seemed like they were not ready for us. The staff also ruined some of our messages when they were packing things away as they packed them with bubbles and the lids came off. All in all it was a great day. Everyone has said it was the best wedding they have been to.
