    Thank you

    We would like to say a huge thank you to the Marriott staff in York in particular to Galil and Steve for making our wedding a magical day to remember forever.
    We contacted the Marriott initially as we were interested in having an informal, intimate wedding ceremony and reception in their beautiful garden. We specifically wanted a BBQ lunch where our guest could enjoy the garden and relax in an informal manner
    From our initial meeting with Gail, it was apparent that nothing was too much trouble, it was a pleasure talking to her, personable yet very professional, there was no upselling and everything was simply very easy, uncomplicated and reasonably priced. We felt it was too good to be true!
    We had several meetings with Gail and Steve as they talked us through every single step of the way. Although the wedding reception was informal, as we requested, it was organised like clockwork.
    Everything was synchronized, professional and friendly which meant we didn’t have to think of anything but enjoying the day. Everyone was discreetly working very hard in the background.
    On arrival on the wedding day both Gail and Steve were there to meet us, and now, just like old friends, were helping us to overcome the pre wedding nerves! It was wonderful!
    The BBQ was plentiful and delicious and again the staff very friendly and welcoming.
    All our guests loved the place, a little beautiful hidden gem overlooking the York racecourse, lovely kept garden where everyone could relax and enjoy.
    We can’t thank Gail and Steve and the rest of the Marriott staff enough, we felt very special, we felt that our day was very special to them.
    We can’t recommend this enough and we certainly will!

    Thank you for everything

    We can’t find the words to thank Gail and Steve two enough for the day we had, Gail was amazing from day one when we viewed the Marriott in regards to having our wedding reception there. She was so professional and welcoming from the moment we walked in and met her, Gail wasn’t pushy at all with us booking and answered any questions we had witch other venues failed to do!
    She has been amazing throughout and always kept in touch with us!!

    Steve, we was introduced to Steve on the night before our wedding as he was the man who made sure everything ran smoothly... and smoothly it was. Steve made sure we was happy with everything throughout the day and made sure our guests were well looked after and we’re okay as well.. every guest we have spoke to since Saturday have all said what a great bloke he is, how professional he is, how good he is at his job and also how much he enjoys his job!!!
    I hope this email comes in great spirit as I really wanted you to know how lucky you are to have these two working under yourself!! As I business owner myself I know how hard it is to get good staff!!

    Please make sure these guys are recognised for what they do!! They are both the best at what they do!!!! ??

    Thank you so much for everything

    You were the dream team!

    Hope you are well, me and Leah have just got home from a lovely few days away!
    We just want to say a massive thank you to you, Lewis and the rest of your team for the best day ever! You made the day stress free and so enjoyable. It was so professional throughout and everyone has commented on you all, and how fabulous the Marriott was in general.
    I would recommend you to anyone and I’m more than happy to write a review anytime.

    Yvette, Lewis and the events team at York Marriott have been so professional, friendly and amazing at their jobs. My wedding was perfect because of them. I couldn’t be any happier. The guests were so impressed by everything. A real credit to your company.

    The day was perfect.

    I don’t think we can thank you or Steve enough for your support, both before and on the day. You were both sensational and for you both to execute our vision so well and to give us the most perfect day...well, we are just so grateful.

    The day was absolutely seamless and you managed to remove any stress we had. Without you both, I truly doubt it would have been the day that we had.

    All of your team were an absolute credit to you too. Nothing was too much and we had so much great feedback from our guests, particularly from the parents about how well your staff treated the children within our wedding party.

    I don’t think we will ever be able to truly convey how grateful we are to both you and Steve. The day was perfect. You were both perfect. If our wedding day is any indicator for our marriage then I imagine it’s going to be a great one!

    Also, the DJ was fantastic. Rarely have we seen such a constantly full dance floor at a wedding. I would definitely recommend him in the future for sure!

    Above and Beyond our Expectations - Amazing !!

    We have just had our wedding at the York Marriott on Saturday and just wanted to email you to say what an amazing day we had. It was above and beyond our expectations and worth every penny we paid.

    From the very first point of booking, to the taster sessions the organisation is second to none.

    We arrived on Friday, met Steve and Yvette and went over the final plans. The day just went so smooth and was so slick it was unbelievable. Even my guests commented on how good the organisation was. Steve and Yvette worked extremely hard and never stopped. Constantly checking to see if everything was ok. Please pass on a massive massive thank you to them for us. We were so impressed, so much so that we will definitely be back for short breaks and will also be joining the gym/spa facilities.

    Thanks Marriott you really made our wedding perfect.

    Regards Paul and Kate Jacques.

    ...a memorable day

    Hi Zoe,

    Just want to say thank you to you again for all your help and support you have given us in planning our wedding. Can’t believe it’s been 2 years since we got engaged and now finally our wedding has been and gone.

    What a memorable day it was, picture perfect in fact. We were so lucky with the weather yesterday. We’re just glad we didn’t get married today (Sat)

    Anyway, all the best for your future!

    Sarah & John

    Could not have wished for a better day

    It took us a while to choose a venue for our wedding and we looked at a few. We knew it was important to get it right as we needed a manager with us to guide us through the process. We both have busy, professional careers and wedding planning was out of our comfort zone!

    There are no words to describe just how grateful we are. You were by far the best decision we made in the whole of this wedding process, we really did have the best day of our lives and we will treasure it forever.

    Yvette looked after us throughout. She was patient, kind, understanding and clear in her communications. Thank you for your time, the never ending emails and listening to every mad idea I had for creative decor! From the venue to the video, photographer, wedding breakfast and everyone involved - we were blown away by the cohesion and care in every aspect of our day.

    Yvette goes over and above her role as wedding/events manager; she is someone who cares about her clients. Her knowledge, attention to detail, and dedication are just amazing. She is a true professional, from the little details like making sure the little ones ate enough - to the overall picture, she made our day absolutely perfect.

    Liam was also part of the team and coordinated our day seamlessly. The guests were so impressed with how smoothly everything ran. The staff and the Marriott Hotel were great - our setting was wonderful and we couldn’t have wished for a better day. Even the rain held off!

    I cannot recommend this team highly enough.

    I knew the Marriott would be the perfect place

    I would like to thank you and all of the team at the Marriott, York, for the brilliant wedding celebration that you hosted for my daughter Carrie and her new husband Dave.

    As soon as my daughter announced she planned to get married in York I knew the Marriott would be the perfect place for the celebrations. In my job I stay at a lot of hotels but the York Marriott is special. Whilst the rooms and facilities are very good these are not what make the York Marriott special. It is the kind, friendly, professional staff that make your hotel so unique.

    So please accept our sincere thanks to you, Yvette, Jeanette, Lewis, Chef and everyone for make the wedding so wonderful for us all. Everyone, and I mean everyone, remarked on what a wonderful hotel it was.
