Everything you could hope for
A week later and we still haven't come back down to earth - we just want to relive every second of our wedding at the Mercure Tunbridge Wells. It's been a long journey, complete with COVID postponement, but it was worth every single day of the extra year's wait. We cannot thank the hotel enough for their support concerning this - they made what could have been a very stressful and costly process so easy and at absolutely no extra cost to us at all. Sophie and her team have been a dream, and on the day, the coordinators, restaurant/kitchen staff, etc were all wonderful. Professional, attentive and so friendly! We would recommend this venue to absolutely everyone. We had the wedding anyone and everyone would wish for!

Choose this venue!!
We cannot fault this place! They have been absolutely fantastic from the day we got in touch, all through the planning and then on the day. More importantly, they could not have been more helpful during the disruption with Covid. We had to move our day twice and they literally took all the stress away. Food and service on the day was fabulous and we can't wait to go back for our anniversary meal!! We love you Mercure!!!

Happy wife, happy life!
We cannot recommend Sophie and her team at Mercure Tunbridge Wells enough. I must admit, I didn't have much to do with the planning, but my wife seemed very happy with the service all the way through and it really was an absolutely fantastic day. Staff were brilliant, everyone had a good time, good value for money too. Wife's happy, I'm happy. Thank you Mercure

So accommodating!
Sophie made this experience as easy and enjoyable as she possibly could. She was always quick to respond, kept us in the loop with relevant government changes and was so flexible and accommodating with last minute changes and personal things we wanted to make the day special. We honestly could not have asked for more and we had the most special and intimate wedding thanks to Sophie and the team at the Mercure!

This team are truly experts!
Sophie and the team at Mercure Tunbridge Wells, thank you so much for everything you have done for us. From helping us with the initial upset of moving our wedding due to Coronavirus, to putting together the wedding day that none of us thought we’d have – it was all still so perfect. As you know, one of our biggest worries for the day was my sister who has severe autism, but the staff made her feel so welcome and were so helpful, we all felt completely at ease with you. You truly are experts at what you do and we are so glad we picked you. We sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts and although we’re now heading into lockdown 2.0, we sincerely hope you’re able to open for weddings properly again soon!

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

There isn't one in particular that stands out as the best, but what I will say, is that the ones where the couple and the guests seem most happy & relaxed are when everything happens in one place; i.e. the ceremony and the reception. It means the couple and the guests arrive at the venue and can relax and enjoy themselves, rather than having to worry about finding transport and getting to each place on time. Other than that, weddings that have a bouncy castle for the children, a photo booth for the adults and bring their pets along are always a big hit!

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

One thing I would recommend the most is to view venues, meet with wedding coordinators & suppliers in person as its important that you trust and get on with the people that will be helping you to organise your wedding day. A venue may look nice on the outside, but if they do not have the experience and service to go with it, then it is likely that it will cause you more stress whilst planning your wedding! You need the best team around you for the task ahead and the peace of mind that your wedding day will be the most enjoyable day.

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

The groom arranged a surprise for the bride on the wedding day - He knew his future wife would have loved to have their dog walk her down the aisle on the day. He secretly arranged for their dog to be bought to the hotel and was handed to her just before she walked down the aisle - the complete surprise on her face and tears of pure love and joy were so heart warming. It made me cry too! I love animals!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Flexible. Personal. Experienced. Value for money! (We know, we cheated with the word limit a little bit!)

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Definitely our Lily Pond! It's the perfect tranquil place for couples to sneak off to to have a few moments to themselves to take the day in and have the perfect photo taken in-front of a gorgeous backdrop.

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

No, we haven't. But that's honestly not important to us. Everyone is royalty to us!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Mini bacon and Aberdeen Angus cheeseburger!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Pulled pork slider platter, spiced apple sauce! YUM!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The hotel was built around the original Georgian Dower House of Pembury - so the venue boasts original Georgian features, but when it was converted to a hotel, the main entrance was built in the style of an Oast House to fit in with the Kent countryside - so there is a grand entrance followed by a warm, welcoming from the Dower House.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The team. Over the past few years, the team here at the hotel have won awards for 'Food & Beverage Team of the Year' and 'Front of House Team of the Year' plus we were Finalists at the recent Kent Wedding Awards for 'Wedding Venue of the Year' in 2020. Every single member of the team here is passionate about what they do and go above & beyond to make people's wedding day dreams come true!
