Everything was just perfect!
Where do I even begin.....from the minute we booked the Mandolay as our wedding venue I knew we had made the right decision! The hotel is lovely the staff are amazing and the wedding was fantastic! I worked with Tami for about a year to plan the wedding and she completely saw my vision for the wedding and helped me every step of the way which I will be forever greatful for. I felt at great ease the whole day and had every faith that Tami and her team had everything under control. Everything was just perfect from the rooms at the hotel to the food and drinks. Leading up to the wedding as you can imagine I got very anxious and nervous about little details but Tami was very quick to put my mind at ease and assure me she had everything under control ( which she did) we used the DJ provided by the hotel as part of the package and he was amazing so lovely and the guests loved him! if your thinking of having your wedding at the Mandolay then go for it you won’t be disappointed and you will have the best day and if you’ve already booked your wedding at the Mandolay then I’m so jealous because I want to do it all over again!!! Thanks so much again to the Mandolay and especially to Tami for the most amazing wedding! Love the new Mr & Mrs James x

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

I hosted a peacock theme wedding this year and I consider them the best because the family was amazing to work with. I truly felt like apart of the family and because of that feeling I wanted to do everything I could to ensure everything was perfect on the day!

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

Find out what's most important to you before you start a venue search!

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

My winter glam wedding was perfection! No details was left un-turned from the stunning silver linen to the matching silver beaded charger plates that finished off the design look! My bride had a vision and ensured it happened with every detail.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

1. Wow! 2. Boutique 3. Calm 4. Unique 5. Home

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Our garden (shocking I know) a high street venue with green space. This makes it the perfect backdrop of photo's because it's unexpected at our venue. Runner up location is our stunning chandelier before you enter the Mandolay Suite.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We had the number 1 George Micheal impersonator give a surprise performance to our wedding guest. Booked by the bride and groom and was the talk of the night!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Out Filet Meatballs has to be my favorite canape - delicious!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Bacon Baps....I wish more of my weddings did this! A toasted Bacon BAP as all of your guests head to bed is the perfect midnight treat!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The size of our Mandolay just don't expect it when you come to the hotel. But to have a function suite of this size with ceiling height is a WOW factor for sure!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our team care about a wedding just as much as I do. It shows on the night that we are all in it together in order to ensure the night is perfect!
