What a day! Every member of staff, from initial meet, meetings leading up to the day, the big day and even after that big day, went above and beyond and really personalised the whole experience for us!
People have always said, "you will know the venue when you see it", to the point where the words kind of lost meaning, but I now know what they mean! We had spent a few months searching high and low for the right venue, then we came across The Winchester Hotel.
The moment we walked in there on a wedding fair day we were speechless with how well organised and friendly everyone was. The Hotel was very clean and the way they set up the venue looked perfect!
We spoke to Helen Taylor who is in charge of the weddings and events. We were made to feel welcome from the word go.
We had regular contact with Helen right from the start, even though we booked 2 years in advance! She kept us up to date with any changes at the hotel (since we booked the hotel gained a spa and a terrace, also the Malory Suite became the Crystal Room, all of which we were very pleased about). We had regular catch ups and each time we came armed with questions and ideas; Helen talked us through and helped us every step of the way, she even looked into and shared her experiences with all aspects of weddings such as contacts and ideas as to where to go for dresses, suits, flowers e.t.c, going above and beyond what you would expect. Nothing was ever too much trouble!
All of the staff were great. From the bar staff, reception staff, Fernando and his team were so friendly and efficient. We had so many great comments about the food and the size of the portions, very generous.
Our day was beautiful and exactly what we both wanted. The personal touch we received from this hotel was incredible. We felt special from start to finish and the only thing I am disappointed with is that is has all come to an end.
