An amazing day from start to finish!

I cannot thank the team at the Bold enough!
Jeanette was on hand to answer all my questions we threw at her whilst planning our day during the lockdowns.
I was lucky enough to stay the night before and was so welcomed by all the staff. They even added an extra camp bed so my flower girl could stay ahead of the busy day.
The day of the wedding was a breeze everything flowed, the room was beautifully set up just how we'd pictured and more with our extras. Took so much stress away from us.
The turn around between meal and evening was seamless by the time we'd wandered to the bar and said a couple of goodbyes we were back in and ready!
Due to a larger family the team were on hand to wiggle the tables to make a huge table so all could mingle.
I couldn't have asked for a better day!
And to top it off at the end of the night when we'd finally made our way back to the room they'd added petals to the bed in a heat. There was even a slice of cake with just married on the plage.
If I could repeat the day again we would ❤️👰‍♀

Best wedding team ever

Dear Jeanette and Team at The Grand Southport, UK.

We are writing to express our deepest gratitude for making our wedding on June 28,2024 such a spectacular and unforgettable event. From the very beginning of the planning process, you went above and beyond to create a wedding that perfectly reflected our vision and exceeded all of our expectations.

We were particularly impressed by your meticulous attention to detail. You ensured that every aspect of the wedding ,from the stunning décor to the seamless flow of the event, and food allergy considerations was absolutely flawless. It was clear that you had taken the time to truly understand our preferences and desires, and you translated them into a reality that left us and our guests in awe.

Your professionalism and expertise were invaluable throughout the entire planning process. You were always available to answer our questions via countless emails , calm our nerves, and provide insightful guidance. Your calming presence on the wedding day itself was an absolute lifesaver – we felt completely confident knowing that everything was in your capable hands.

Thanks to your incredible efforts, our wedding was not just a celebration, it was a truly magical experience that we will cherish forever. We have received countless compliments from our guests about how beautiful and well-organized the event was. We are so grateful for your dedication and hard work in making our dream wedding a reality.

We will definitely be recommending The Grand Southport/The Bold and your exceptional services to all of our friends and family who are planning their own weddings.

Mr & Mrs Burke

We booked a Twilight wedding package with The Bold Hotel, for our wedding on the 1st June!
The events staff were very helpful and lovely during the planning process of our wedding, which made it one less thing to worry about.
On the afternoon/evening of our wedding the operations team were fantastic, they were all so lovely also and ensured everything went smoothly behind the scenes. We are so pleased we booked the bold for our special day. all of our guests, have commented on how much they enjoyed the afternoon/night, how nice the food was, how beautiful the rooms looked and how great the operations team were. Thank you again, to you all!! X

Absolutely amazing

Hi Jeanette,
On behalf of Lisa and myself, I just wanted to send a HUGE thank you to you and your team for everything you have done for us since our original query and booking through to yesterday when we collected the aftermath of our wedding.

From start to finish you and your team have shown excellence and a true dedication to ensuring the customer is satisfied.

A special note to your staff who helped out our friend who had an accident and needed first aid. I am led to believe that the staff who assisted, went above and beyond all expectations.

I now know why the Bold Hotel has such a large reputation as a wedding & event location. It may be run of the mill & standard work for you guys, but you made us, our guests and our day feel
Special, and your team undertook their duties with professionalism and excellence.

I imagine you already are, but you should be immensely proud of your team, and the owners are outrageously lucky to have staff that represent the brand to the level they did.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a truly wonderful wedding.

We shall always consider you for any future big day events.
Thank you

Greg & Lisa Webb

We had our wedding reception in July 17 at the Bold and it was fantastic. We had around 55 guests. The room was perfect and the staff were great, on the day they were more than happy to move things around for me (being 7 months pregnant I needed a lie down half way through the evening).

All our guests commented on how lovely the food was - it was really good.

Jess organised the wedding for us, and she was brilliant- couldn't have asked for anyone better. Thank you :)

Wedding Day

We had our afternoon / evening wedding reception and stay at this hotel on Saturday. Everything went without a hitch from start to finish. The food was amazing.

We did just want to single out two of your staff for special praise. Jess and Emily were fantastic with us from start to finish. We visited the hotel a few times to organise the wedding and always received a warm greeting. Emily showed us the rooms so we could decide where to stay and was very attentive, nothing was too much trouble, even organising a wedding message and gift for the room.

Jess took care of the food order and any other details and planned our day perfectly, even coming in on the Saturday when she wasn't on duty to oversee everything was running well.

We will now be regulars at The Bold as it holds such nice memories for us.

Thank you

Just wanted to say a huge thankyou for all your help and advice leading up to the big day. After our first meeting with you as the hotels new Events coordinator, I felt so happy and at ease. I knew you would be there if i needed anything.
The day was a huge success and everything ran perfectly thanks to your fantastic planning. All the staff at the Bold were so friendly and welcoming, and seemed to enjoy the day with us.

The complimentary champers and lovely decorated plate and cake in our room was a perfect end to a perfect day too.
