    Thank you all

    Incredible experience from start to finish

    We cannot thank the Grand Hotel (especially Charlotte) enough for all they did for us to make our day extra special despite all the challenges and changes due to COVID.
    We stayed in the stunning King Suite for three nights to make it an extra special weekend- highly recommend doing this as so much space for all bridal party to get ready not to mention the view!
    We had to change our layout and reception venue a few times due to change to rules and every time Charlotte was very flexible and supportive- offering us many options as they have so many beautiful spaces to choose from.
    We had the most beautiful reception in the end being in the Pavilion Suite with views of West Pier. The food was exceptional which all the guests commented on the next day and the service was fantastic.
    If you are looking for a venue that offers a incredible service, many options of spaces and luxury from start to finish then I suggest booking to go and visit the Grand. You will not be disappointed!

    Hi April & Lee, thank you so much for your review! It was an absolute pleasure assisting in the coordination and organization of your wedding day. Despite the multiple changes we had to make together surrounding covid restrictions, it was amazing seeing everything finally come together for you both and that you were able to celebrate with close friends and family .The Autumnal theme looked beautiful and one of my favourite set-ups from this year! Best of wishes to you both in married life - be sure to stay in touch. We'll look forward to welcoming you back for your anniversary! Charlotte

    A very special place

    We had the most incredible day at The Grand, it was made even more special because lockdown started again the week after. It was our second time attempting to get married, but The Grand exceeded our expectations in every way. The building is beautiful and an incredible landmark in a cool city. There are so many great photo opportunities both indoors and out, and the Brighton Bandstand is just a few minutes down the road.
    The food was fantastic, all of our guests commented on how lovely it was and there were clean plates all round. The asparagus and brioche starter was especially good, and the Jaffa cake gelato to die for!
    Last but not least, the staff really make the place here. We were so well looked after by Charlotte, Andre and the rest of the staff- anything we needed seemed to appear as if by magic, nothing was too much trouble. Charlotte was there before the ceremony to make sure everything was in order which was very reassuring. One of the staff even helped getting a great group photo on the balcony.
    In short we would highly recommend The Grand, we had the most incredible weekend, I felt like a princess and I can't wait to go back, hopefully for our first anniversary!!!

    The Grand Brighton's reply:

    Thank you for your review Catriona & Alan. It was lovely seeing you celebrate with your close friends and family for your intimate wedding with us prior to the second national lockdown. I can't wait to see your photos and welcome you back for your anniversary next year! All the best, Charlotte.

    Reception at the Grand Hotel, Brighton

    It was such a pleasure working with. Charlotte, who couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming.
    The lunch and reception was wonderful. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Andre and Megan were the perfect hosts.
    We would love to do it all over again!

    Wedding at the Grand

    Excellent service, very attentive! Loved it so much we are back for our 1st anniversary this weekend.
    Thank you Charlotte and Team

    The Grand Brighton's reply:

    Thanks for your review Sheila & Kirsty. Myself and the events staff have fond memories of looking after your VIP Giant Bridal Gnomes! They seemed to pop up everywhere on the day and there was many a photo taken- especially toward the end of the night when they were propped up against the bar! Thank you for hosting your wedding with us, stay in touch. Charlotte

    Thank you Sarah, you did a fantastic job in setting it up for us and your staff were great. We all had a fabulous time and the hotel made us feel really special. It has a great atmosphere and we think the only hotel that could put a show on like the Grand does. We will be back for the odd romantic break and we look forward to enjoying the hotel again.

    Visited for the weekend of our daughter's wedding and had the most perfect time. The hotel is beautiful and will be absolutely stunning when the renovations have been completed. Sarah and her events team were amazing and we couldn't have asked for more.
