Best choice of wedding venue
I cannot recommend Holiday Inn enough! We are very happy with our choice of venue for multiple reasons: we didn't have to move from one venue to another for the registrar and then the party, no issues with the parking for us and our guests as well and also extremely convenient for guests travelling from different parts on the country, as they could book a hotel room at a discounted rate. May I add that the breakfast there and the facilities are really good as well! Very important is also the fact that we had the support we needed in terms of planning all the details, Lara and Justina have gone above and beyond in accomodating everything for us: they are very professional, kind and approachable! Holiday Inn has also become our favourite place for going out for a coffee because of the friendly atmosphere and it's also quiet and just really pleasant overall!

Wonderful staff, amazing venue
I was wedding planner for my parent's wedding and liaised with Lara throughout. The wedding went like clockwork and communication and service from Lara and the rest of the team was second to none. This was not the first event we had held at The Holiday Inn, but it was by far the most important, and the attitude and professionalism of all the staff reflected that. From orders of tea for the MoB to a sit down meal for the wedding party the day after, the whole weekend was a joy and it was certainly unforgettable. Thank you Lara and the team!!

Get Married Here
We could not believe how much we got for our money! Being a Holiday Inn we were unsure at first but after meeting the coordinator we realised this was the place to get married. For the money we paid we got everything we wanted and much more!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Our number one wedding planning tip for couples is to make a plan and a to-do list. It's important to break down the tasks into manageable chunks and prioritise them. Writing down what needs to be done will help you stay organised and ensure that nothing gets overlooked. Not only that, but it will also provide a sense of accomplishment as you are able to tick off completed items!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Our favorite personal touch I've seen at a wedding was a memory table. The table was decorated with photos of the couple throughout the years, from when they were kids to their engagement photos. It was a really special and meaningful way to honor the couple's history and gave the guests a chance to see how their love has grown over the years.
