    Our Wedding 31.03.18

    Where do we start ?? What an absolutely amazing day we had! Rebecca our wedding coordinator was by far the nicest and most organised person ever! There is a new manager for weddings at the grand and again she was lovely! If you want a beautiful day with amazing staff from start to finish then this is the venue for you! All of the staff at this hotel were absolutely fantastic. They all became a part of our wedding and made our day .... even though Chris forgot the rings ??. We didn’t stress once when we walked through the doors the day before. The team did absolutely everything . We cannot thank you all enough and we are so happy that you were all a part of it! The food was amazing , the venue was beautiful and the staff top quality. Thank you again, Mr and Mrs Barnwell xx

    Wedding Vowel renewal 16th July 2016

    We Renewed our wedding vows at The Grand on 16th July 2016 and were so pleased that we chose to do this here.
    Prior to our big day we had meetings with our wedding coordinator, who listened to our ideas, gave us welcome advice, and ensured that our day went smoothly.
    On the day we had a simple ceremony and then a couple of drinks in and around the grounds whilst enjoying the amazing views of the Leas and over the sea then we had a sit down afternoon tea for 40 people in the dining room whilst the pianist tickled the ivory's, everything was perfect even if i was a bit fussy with the table arrangements and made the staff change it all about last minute it seemed as if nothing was an issue.
    Our evening reception was amazing, we chose burgers and hot dogs to feed our evening guests and have to say the food was excellent,
    We both would thoroughly recommend The Grand as a wedding venue and thank you to all the staff for their contribution in making our day perfect.

    Great venue

    We had a wonderful day and we received many comments afterwards about the attention paid to detail and how much the guests enjoyed their day.
    Much of this was due to the exemplary advise of Jane, always available, relaible and knowledgeable.
    We remember it as a perfect wedding.
