Magical Winter Wedding
From start to finish Hannah and Kay were amazing. We had regular meetings with them and they always responded quickly to any requests or query’s. Hannah went above and beyond to make our day magical. The Tavistock room is amazing for an intimate winter wedding. Dylan the general manager was great on the day as were his staff. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough.

We couldn’t have opted for a better place to get married, from the first time we went to look at the venue all the way up to our wedding the staff were absolutely incredible. I would especially like to thank Hannah it was a pleasure to have her as our wedding organiser she helped us day and night from the very start and I would just like to say a huge thank you to her. The venue was amazing, wonderful, beautiful, idyllic, and just simply amazing. I would highly recommend for your wedding.

Simply the best day of our lives
My now husband and I had such a beautiful wedding day at the Bedford Hotel, the staff were absolutely amazing and went above and beyond for us, the day went much much better than I ever could have expected it to go, there were no dramas and everything ran smoothly and on time. We had our ceremony in the Tavistock room, and wow what a set up, canapés and drinks in the beautiful setting of the walled garden and whilst that was going on they set the Tavistock room up for the wedding breakfast. When my husband and I saw the room set up we both almost cried as it was absolutely beautiful ❤️. The evening room also looked stunning. The food was absolutely amazing. I highly recommend this venue. All the staff there are absolutely amazing. Thank you so much to Kay, Hannah and Dylan especially ❤️❤️

Our special moment our end chapter
The best venue to share such an amazing moment of life with. Hannah and Kay was so supportive throughout the whole process from the moment we booked our wedding to the minute we left the hotel after our wedding. We had a small and simple wedding a cream tea and harpist. Fionnuala Kirby was absolutely amazing and really set the scene for the day. Dylan was amazing on the day and helped all our guests from the children to my special guest who needed additional assistance. The bar staff and reception was excellent. We could not have pick a better place to join our lives and start our end chapter.
