So we absolutely CANNOT fault the professionalism, dedication, hard work and flexibility of the staff at the Marine hotel in 2020 during such a difficult and stressful time. I feel a little emotional writing this as having our wedding cancelled 11 days before it was due to happen was absolutely heartbreaking at the time. The blow was made so much easier by having so much support from the staff at the hotel.
When we decided we wanted to go ahead with a small intimate wedding with 15 guests in October 2020, the staff at the Marine were incredible. We had a Plan A, a Plan B and a Plan C, depending on any covid rule changes. The creative thinking, thoughtfulness and quick email replies with reassurance were an absolute blessing for us. We felt completely secure having such regular contact, and someone to oversee track and trace, and help us plan our 'bubbles' and organise our seating plan. I have to say, on reflection- we loved the small intimate wedding so much, we wouldn't change a thing. A cosy autumnal theme, fire on, candles lit, delicious food and our most important family and friends- I would highly recommend a small wedding to anyone now!! Lots of our friends had to rearrange weddings this year and I have heard some real horror stories. I am so so grateful for the Marine Hotel and am impressed by how they have handled everything. I can't wait to celebrate again in 2022!
