Well, what can I say
Well, what can I say.. We had our wedding reception here last weekend and we had the BEST day ever! . David was absolutely spot on and was there for every question, request and moment we needed him, all throughout the planning and on the day. . David and all members of staff were there throughout the day, and were professional and attentive to all needs. . Food was A* and so many guests have said they really enjoyed the bbq food we had, highly recommend the hotdogs!! . Our whole day from start to finish was perfect, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. If you're thinking of having a wedding reception here, eating or drinking here, DO IT!! . Thank you to David, Steve and all staff, you're all amazing and made our day as perfect as it was.

Thank You, Thank You and Thank You. That’s how much Shirley and Ken rated the Clarendon Royal Hotel. We have just got married at the venue and would like to thank the hotel Event Team, Steve and all his staff for the wonderful experience you gave us to add to our memories of our wedding day and did we have one. Never mind about the Royal Wedding our guests thought they were at it, as we were treated like royalty on the day by the Clarendon. All our guests came up to us after the wedding breakfast to thank us for the delicious food they had, not one had a bad experience, so well done to the chef and all the helpers. The evening guests also commented on how good the evening buffet was. All the staff was so friendly, helpful, polite and very attentive to our needs and the rooms and hotel were very clean and tidy. So once again we say thank you, the wedding day was truly excellent. Ken & Shirley

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

We always advise all couples to have the ceremony early so you can actually enjoy your day. So many couples plan the perfect day but don't leave any time to actually spend with their guests and take in the day due to hurrying through from ceremony to sit down to reception. My advise would always be to have the ceremony early, pick a venue which can cater for your entire day, across different rooms/spaces and just enjoy yourselves. It can be hard to not get swayed by outside opinions and interests but this is YOUR special day not their's have everything the way you want it!!!

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

We recently hosted a wedding where the father of the brides speech was a song he'd written throughout that day. It detailed little quirky things that had happened on the day. He then taught everyone the chorus and all 100 guests song along with him.
