    We had an absolutely amazing wedding day.

    Our wedding coordinator Briair was brilliant, nothing was to much trouble. Such a lovely person. Our personal chef Carla, produced such amazing food and was so lovely.
    The venue was simply stunning. Breathtaking views, relaxing atmosphere.
    We had an elopement package with just the two of us and our day was perfect from start to finish.

    Amazing wedding day and stunning venue

    Me and my now wife had a fantastic wedding at Sandy Cove on the 12th of July. We had an outdoor ceremony, despite torrential rain the day before and some rather black clouds on the morning of our wedding. Luckily, the venue do not have to make a decision on where to hold the ceremony (in or out) until about an hour before. Thankfully for us, the clouds cleared and the sun came belting down!

    Dawn, Kelly & the rest of her team made every effort to make our day as wonderful as possible and were instrumental in getting us the day we wanted despite Covid throwing restrictions at us left, right and centre. They were responsive throughout, more so in the weeks leading up to the big day, the reception team kept smiles on their faces, despite being moaned at and criticised for no good reason, by some rather idiotic customers (not from our wedding party I might add) and our coordinator (Lisa) and the night manager (Chris) kept the day running like clockwork!

    The award-winning food was delicious, and a number of "foodie" guests commented on how it was the best wedding food they have ever eaten, a statement echoed by al other guests. We did want the BBQ but were told we could not have this, as it was buffet style and Covid/Boris would not allow it. We were gutted about this, but it wasn't the venues' fault and to be honest, probably worked out for the best, for the reasons stated above!

    If you are looking for a venue with a wow factor, by wow I mean stunning views, amazing staff, award winning food, close by nature walks, beaches on your doorstep, large capacity, fantastic indoor & outdoor ceremony options, good decor (where the colour scheme can be chosen by you) and so on, then you really do not need to look any further... Sandy Cove have you covered!
