    Punches above its weight in every respect!

    The Grand Pier exceeded all our expectations – on their price, food, service, and tailoring the offering to our needs. Cat, our wedding planner, was responsive and worked with us to realise our dreams. We had not tasted the food before, so it was a bit of a leap of faith. It was really delicious and many guests commented on how tasty and beautifully presented the four course dinner was. The Tiffany has spectacular views throughout the day. It looked great with long tables for 90, and space for a dance floor included. On the night, the team, especially Charlotte, worked with military precision to get all the timings perfect. The price of the venue was extremely reasonable and the service offered could not have been better. Getting to use the rides/ arcade was a really fun touch that the guests loved, both those young and old. It was truly an unforgettable day and can't recommend it enough!

    The most awesome time

    We both had the most awesome time, the food was yummy, atmosphere relaxed and everything flowed smoothly - which is just how we wanted it. Thank you for all your help with that.

    Thank you too for being so flexible and chopping and changing the plan to suit our spur-of-the-moment ideas and work around our beach photography moments.
    The ceremony room set-up and dinner tables looked marvellous and you and your team did a fantastic job - it couldn't have suited us, or looked any better! :)

    Several people have said how great the day was and a few even rating it as one of the best days in their lives!

    Thank you again for making our special day really special and everything that we wanted from it! We really really appreciate it.

    Thank you so very much for making our wedding day so very, very special.
    What a memorable day it was. We are so glad we chose the Tiffany Room as our venue, it looked absolutely
    stunning. The food was also amazing. Meeting friends and family after the event they, like us,
    are still talking about the most fabulous wedding they went to on the Grand Pier

    The most amazing day ever

    I know everyone says their wedding was the most amazing day ever – but this one really was!

    Everything you did, all your hard work and long hours paid off – the room looked fantastic, both for the ceremony and the
    wedding breakfast.

    Everyone commented on the excellent food – the heart shaped croutons in the soup were a lovely touch!

    The serving staff were unobtrusive but always to hand, very polite and helpful.

    Most amazing day ever

    Just to say we had our wedding on the pier at Weston super mare on 21/09/2013, it was the most amazing day ever, we couldn't have been looked after better, our wedding planner Gayle was with us from the first moment we met at the wedding fayre until the day of our wedding, I can honestly say she was priceless. She was with us on our wedding day until the end of the night, she went over and above board on what she did, we had our venue in the Tiffany Room which we had all day for everything, it was amazing from the decor to the waiters they were out of this world. As we had a civil ceremony we had to have registrars brought in, they were so kind and more than willing to explain anything we needed to know. All our guests commented on the day on how brilliant a venue it was, I can't praise everyone enough for their hard work especially Gayle who we couldn't have done it without, thank you isn't enough.

    Professional and attention to detail

    Both myself and David were delighted with how the day went: The professionalism and attention to detail of you and your team ensured everything ran smoothly and that we could relax, enjoy our day and the sight of all our guests having a wonderful time.

    Everyone commented on the beauty of the venue and the exemplary quality of the catering and hospitality - some now have plans to book their own parties and events with you, as they enjoyed the day so much. I have recommended the Pier to everyone who has asked about our wedding. In my opinion, we could not have made a better choice of venue.

    Special credit must go to you, Abbie: You have been a joy to work with from the day we booked our wedding and were fortunate enough to have you assigned as our event coordinator.
    Your tireless work before and on the day was absolutely key to it's success. We are both so grateful to you for playing such a starring role in making our special day the very best it could have been.
