We have our wedding booked at Mulberry House in September this year (2013) and I have come on Trip Advisor today to comment on how amazing the venue is, how helpful the staff are and most of all to praise our wedding coordinator Claire O’Sullivan. We are however shocked at the negative feedback that some individuals have left but we appreciate people are entitled to their say on here but I really would like to clarify how pleased we are with the service of Mulberry House and share our positive views with you all to help future visitors get a positive outlook on Mulberry House!
The venue is set in beautiful grounds, very delightful for memorable wedding photos and generally set in a calm ambiance which does nothing more than make you smile. The accommodation throughout has character, it is so clean and well maintained. We really liked Mulberry House back in April 2012 when we viewed it and Claire really did sell it to us so well. Claire is so passionate about what she does and this really makes a bride and groom feel at ease and she made us feel confident that Mulberry House would deliver the wedding of our dreams. Since booking, (which we ended up booking on the same date we viewed) we have not looked back since and have not had any regrets. Claire is so efficient, she is on hand 24/7 and whenever we call or email her about anything she comes back with answers immediately, she is more than helpful and we cannot thank her enough for everything she has done and is continuing to do! We have no doubts that our day will not be what we wish for and all in all if it wasn’t for Claire we wouldn’t feel as confident as we do. I (the bride to be) am very particular and my friends know me as a perfectionist – Claire is doing and has done so far everything she can to make sure I get what I want and to ensure my expectations are met!! Her passion for her job shines through and each time we have a meeting with her she expresses her excitement to us and we always leave with a positive buzz! It is amazing.
The day is now fast approaching and we really cannot wait to take our vows at this beautiful venue and look forward to Claire and her team making our day one to remember. We will be back soon after the wedding to provide on here a full review of our day just to clarify how fantastic our day really was!
