We booked our wedding ceremony and reception at Marsh Farm Hotel and I couldn't recommend it more. Emma and the team were great at accommodating all of our requests and made the day flow really smoothly. They even managed to accommodate my husbands surprise for me of 2 alpacas.
We got married on a Friday and luckily there were no events on the day before so we were able to set up then. Because we had people travelling from all over the country we had the majority of people staying over the night before the wedding as well as the night of the wedding so having the number of rooms that there were was great. They were also able to work to accommodate all of the families that came by providing z-beds where required. I spent the night before in the bridal suite in the main hotel which had plenty of room for getting ready and relaxing with my friends. As I got all of my stuff packed away, housekeeping then moved all of my stuff into the bridal suite above the Clarendon for the evening.
The food was great. They put on a hot buffet (lasagne, chicken and vegi curry) the night before as there were so many of us there. It was more food than we were expecting and it was great. We opted for a BBQ for our wedding breakfast which was really nice and a buffet for the evening. They were good at making sure that those with dietary requirements were catered for as well.
The hotel is compact but there are lots of lovely spots for photos. Having everything in one place was great and made the day more relaxed.
