We booked this hotel for our wedding based on the beautiful rooms & character of the hotel. We used the Sandy Richardson suite for both the ceremony (with 1/2 the room partitioned off) and for the reception & evening do using the full room. The staff did a fantastic job, paying exquisite attention to detail. Nothing was to much trouble & they went above & beyond any level of customer service ive ever experienced. Whenever we visited the hotel we were greeted like royalty and made to feel completely at ease about all the wedding prep.
Myself & 2 of my bridesmaids stayed at the hotel the night before the wedding & stayed in a very clean, spacious room. On the morning of the wedding the put me up bed was quickly removed & extra chairs & glasses were brought up for while we got ready. Housekeeping very quickly turned round the bridal suite from the previous days wedding so i could have photo's in there before the ceremony.
Kate, the wedding co-ordinator is a lovely, friendly girl, who is always at the end of the phone to go over every single detail of the wedding. She clearly loves her job & made the whole wedding process scarily calming! Shaun the general manager was always on hand to oversee the smooth running & even helped carry the train on my dress. It was nice to see him serving the wedding breakfast with the waiters aswell. He is definitely not the kind of manager who has a superiority complex! If any brides book a wedding here I would advise them to request Rob to be their master of ceremony. He kept the whole day flowing from start to finish. He was there whenever we needed him & kept the day running to schedule. Little touches like putting a DVD on for the kids while speeches took place was brilliant. We were even suprised by the hotel with chinese lanterns! It was a lovely suprise & a moment we'll never forget. Our day was absolutely perfect & i would definitely recomend the Pavilion for a fairytale wedding.
