We recently had our Wedding reception at The Birch Hotel, we couldn’t fault the process from the start. Izzy and her team were absolutely amazing in organising our big day at the hotel which took a lot of pressure of us both, leading up to the big day. On arrival to the hotel everyone was greeted with a glass of Prosecco in the lounge and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. The wedding breakfast was fantastic with three different options to choose from which catered for our guests very well who had dietary requirements. The Birch organised our DJ and Photo Booth operators which the staff were so professional throughout the night. The hot fork buffet in the evening was again absolutely amazing with more than enough food to go round with the staff continuously topping up the food. We had the honeymoon suit on the night of our wedding which was wonderfully decorated in rose petals and candles. Thank you so much again to Izzy and her team this really was the best day of our lives and was all down to the hard work which went on preparing making this day so special for us. Thank you so so much.
