Lauren Thank you for organising our wedding yesterday, we had an absolutely amazing day. I wanted to pass on that James was absolutely fantastic and I think every venue needs a James! Everything ran perfectly and the whole team of staff were faultless. It was great. Lots of people commented on how good the food was too! Thanks again, Katie and Luke

We would like to thank you and all of the staff at the Grand for making our Wedding so wonderful. Everything was absolutely perfect and we just can't get over how our special day ran without a hitch. The day would have been nice but the main reason it was exceptional was the fantastic staff in a fantastic venue. Everyone was so efficient and professional however their warmth and friendliness shone through, just a winning combination. Most brides will never forget their wedding day however my memories will be hard to beat.

It was truly amazing!

Hi Catherine and Laura, Michael and I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help with our wedding on Sunday. Everything was exactly how we wanted, all our guests said how welcoming The Grand was, and the whole team were so wonderful, with nothing being too much trouble in any help needed. Even with some last minute changes with seating arrangements! You made it so easy for us. Please pass on a special thanks to Ashley as well, who was brilliant and the whole team who were simply fantastic. We’re so pleased to have chosen to have our Wedding at The Grand, from the first moment we contact you, you have been so attentive, friendly and made it such a fantastic experience for us. Richard our photographer has sent through some sneaky peak photos, but once he’s sent through the others I'll be sure to send them on. The banqueting table took my breath away, the room was just spectacular. Thank you so much again,

Wonderful wedding day!

Hi Catherine Now the dust has settled after Jess & Tom's wedding can I say a big thank you to you and Laura for making sure the day ran smoothly - because to me it seemed to! From what I could see everyone had a great time and thankfully the weather wasn't too hot. I have to say that all of the staff we came into contact with were extremely polite and helpful - which of course is what we'd expect from a 5-star hotel and our expectations were met. Thank you for an excellently planned event - we'll certainly consider staying at the Grand when we next visit York.

We had a fantastic, wonderful and fabulous day.

By Helen & Stuart, on 29 May 2018Date of Wedding - 06 May 2018

I just wanted to thank you for all your help and support to make our wedding so amazing. Also a big thank you to Laura and everyone else involved at the Grand. Our day really was perfect. It felt so special and memorable. There was just so much to take in. We’ve just come back from our honeymoon (back to reality unfortunately) or I would have mailed you earlier, but we talked about our wedding day at some point every day while we were away. We keep remembering things. The room looked incredible, for the ceremony and wedding breakfast, it took my breath away when I walked in, for both parts. The meal was outstanding, everything ran like clockwork. Everyone from the hotel (and guests too) was so kind and supportive. The room remained cool throughout the ceremony and meal (as you know I was particularly fretting about that !) The separate rooms worked well for the guests too. Our room that we stayed in that night was fantastic too. We really couldn’t have asked for anything to have been better. We’re really looking forward to seeing the video and photos as there was so much to take in we need help remembering it all ! Sorry we were such a nightmare with all our requests and queries. Thank you again. It really couldn’t have been more fantastic.

I am writing to you as a very satisfied customer.

My Wife, Lindsey, and I had the pleasure of getting married in your wonderful hotel on Saturday 28/04/18. The entire experience was outstanding. Catherine Smith was fantastic at responding to our (many) emails. At no point were we made to feel that our requests were unreasonable, and she was a star from beginning to end. Everything on the day was organised to perfection. Ashley ran the day and night with an expert eye, and small last minute changes were swiftly dealt with. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the service was, and more than one said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Additionally, the quality of the food was incredible. Please pass on our thanks to all concerned.

Thank you so much...

Dear Catherine, Lindsey and I are so happy with how the day and and evening went. Everything was perfect. Last minute changes (such as changing a child’s meal!) were dealt with quickly and professionally. All of the staff were wonderful, and Ashley ran things amazingly. Please pass our thanks to him! Thank you so much for your hard work over the last few months, and for your patience with all of our emails and requests! Everyone, ourselves included, agreed how amazing the food was. Special thanks for changing the crab cakes as we asked - they were perfection! All of our guests commented on what an an amazing wedding it was, and more than one said it was the best they have ever been to. Thanks again, Joe and Lindsey

Just had to drop you an email to say a massive thank you for Saturday. Our day was absolutely perfect, the venue, the staff, the food, flowers, pianist and the DJ. Looking back we wouldn’t have changed anything, just perfect. Everybody has said how fabulous the staff were too, so please could you also pass our heartfelt thanks on to Laura and the rest of the team. Thank you so much.
