Couldn’t of asked for a better wedding day.
The layout of the room was great and tables placed strategically, the turn around for transforming the room at each point was super efficient.
I cannot thank her enough for how amazing our day turned out, we absolutely loved it and the staff at the Cumberland, they where all fantastic and I would highly recommend having your special day with them. All the guests commented on how amazing it was and how they hadn’t been to a wedding that just flowed like it did there before.
Thank you so much Lisa, the staff and of course the kitchen for the amazing food choices ordered and cooked to perfection, which was served throughout the day, amazing.
Wedding Ceremony in the Oceana Suite
Also got to see inside of the brooklyn suite which was spotlessly clean just like the rest of the hotel, the room had a brilliant view of the ocean.’
Weddign Reception and Party
Callum the DJ was great and played all the music we requested. All in all a great night had, feedback has been so positive, everyone loved it. Highly recommend.’
The breakfast selection is lovely! Rooms are clean, and very welcoming. The staff were lovely too.
Thank you, especially Brian. He is a credit to the company.’
From our initial meeting with Lisa we felt completely safe in her hands. She is so lovely but a complete professional. Being someone who normally likes to take control I was more than happy to let Lisa take the lead. She listens to what you want makes suggestions you may not have thought about and makes your dreams a reality.
We decided to stay the night before we had a beautiful room with a sea view the room was immaculate.
The wedding day itself ran like clockwork. We didn’t even notice the staff around us as they went about their business making our day so enjoyable. I would like to mention the duty manager that day Jenny, she was so warm nothing was too much trouble and just made our day feel even more perfect so thank you Jenny. The room looked perfect, my guests were blown away with how delicious the food was. We really did have the greatest day. Our DJ was provided by the hotel listened to what we wanted and nailed it, the dance floor never empty.
We hired Garry Foley (elvis tribute act) for our entertainment who has worked with the Cumberland for many years and so I felt completely relaxed in the knowledge he could set up without any issue.
So if anybody out there is looking for a venue and a stress free day the Cumberland and their staff are amazing. Ask for Lisa she won’t let you down!’
Thank you everyone for making my day so special.

We had a wonderful Wedding. I can't thank you and the staff of the hotel enough. the food was amazing and the head guy in the restaurant (sorry I don't know his name) and the other waiting staff were amazing.
Everything ran very smoothly and I (we) didn't have to worry about anything. I only have one teenie tiny thing and that is it would have been helpful if there had been cards by the Indian food so everyone new which curry was which.
I will miss meeting up with you and chatting, could've talked to you for hours about gardening and the Theatre. You are a very warm and engaging person and i'm so glad we picked you and the hotel to celebrate our Wedding.
Wedding of the Year
We chose the venue because we had eaten here before in the Ventana Restaurant and had previously spent many evenings with friends and family.
We met with our wedding planner Brian Robbins a year and a half ago and we knew from that day we had chosen well. Brian was just amazing , nothing was too much trouble , he was always on hand when ever you needed to chat or meet
Brian made sure everything on the day ran to clockwork
We had over 100 guests stay with us for the whole weekend and everybody totally enjoyed themselves, the food was just amazing for the wedding breakfast and evening B-B-Q
We take our hats off to all the staff at the Cumberland Hotel you made our day even more special by making us totally able to enjoy ours with no worries
All our love

A big thank you to Brian Robbins for being very helpful and professional. We really appreciated it. Brian was always providing useful piece of advice. He also liased with the decoration and cake suppliers which made our life much easier. Brian also offered to change the suite with balcony which was perfect to take photos with my parents and friends before the ceremony. Definetely he delivered a great and amazing customer service.
The organization was great. We had the ceremony and reception at the hotel and everything went smoothly. Everybody enjoyed breakfast and evening buffet which was very tasty.
We would highly recommend the Cumberland Hotel as a wedding venue.
