December 2023 wedding

We recently had our wedding at The Ro, our guests mostly stayed in the hotel for two nights.
Rochelle, Patty and the whole of the Ro team looked after us all brilliantly from the moment we booked the wedding. Everything was faultless.
have completed the vote for the Great Northern Wedding Awards and I wish them good luck with this. would not hesitate to recommend
The Ro as a wedding venue, as well as a lovely hotel to stay at for a nice getaway. All our guests have said the same too.
We will be back soon for another visit.

Amazing from start to finish!

We got married at The Ro in December 2023, having only booked 4 months prior to this! Rochelle (wedding coordinator) was amazing from start to finish, she was really helpful, came up with different ideas, always prompt and responsive on emails but most of all was very patient with a me being very particular! She was able to offer props for us to use to decorate the tables and ceremony room which obviously saved us a lot of money. We never felt pushed to spend more and her and her whole team definitely followed our lead. The day ran just as we had imagined. Rochelle, Phoebe, Sophie, Becs, Adam, Mike and every single member of staff were so attentive and really couldn’t do enough for us and our guests. I would really recommend The Ro as a wedding venue, whether it be intimate, extravagant or family friendly, The Ro really can tick all the boxes. We have already booked to come and stay in The Ro Suite in a few weeks time! Thank you all so much for helping make our day so special and just how we wanted it :)

An amazing wedding venue and memories that will last a lifetime

We can not fault The Ro Hotel and all of the staff for the weekend they provided for us as a couple and all of our family and friends. Every single guest was impressed by how personal and attentive the staff were to their every need. We have had many compliments on the food on the day, with many saying it was the best wedding food they have ever had (special shout for the duck bao buns on the canapes!). The events team, Rochelle, Sophie and Phoebe ensured the whole weekend was perfect from start to finish. They were at hand for anything we needed, lots of friends have subsequently booked more visits to return. The bar staff were equally as attentive, Robbie and Jake were fantastic over the whole weekend. Our florist, photographer, DJ, singer and cake maker all complimented the team at The Ro with their support in organising and coordinating the day.
The location is fantastic with stunning views over the lake, the ceremony room provided a stunning backdrop for many of our wedding images. The bridal suite is ideal for the morning of the wedding, with ample space and lighting for bridesmaids (I had 6 of those!), MOB and hair/makeup teams. Breakfast was pre-ordered and brought up on the morning along with some bubbles at a time convenient for us. For our guests who wanted alternative accommodation there were many options within walking distance.

I would not hesitate to recommend The Ro as a wedding venue to anyone, it was a perfect weekend.
