Thank you so much!
Had my wedding at the Holiday Inn in November. Thanks to the staff at the hotel it was a PERFECT day. Food was amazing and the rooms extremely comfortable. The event ran so smoothly and all staff were extremely helpful. Definitely use the hotel again.

We truly did have our perfect day!
We would like to say a very big thank you to everyone that helped contribute to making our wedding the most perfect day of our lives so far. We'd particularly like to thank Alex, who was amazing on the day! We will pop in with some photos when we have them back from the photographer, but for now, here's a few to have a look at :-) Thanks again for everything: we truly did have our perfect day!
