Excellent!
We were over the moon with how well everything went. Nothing was a hassle or too much trouble. We had a wonderful day and so did our guests. We can’t thank the staff enough for their help. Our guests all said that they had a wonderful time. The meal and evening food was wonderful. The service was incredibly smooth and we were always kept in the loop. All of the staff were professional and friendly. Sofie has been absolutely amazing through planning and on the day. Jamie was also really helpful when we set up the night before and on the day. Our room was perfect. Extremely clean and comfortable.

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It is hard to pick just one as all weddings we host at The Derby Conference Centre, are as unique as our couples. The best thing about a DCC wedding is how each couple makes the venue their own with personalised touches.

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

Better to ask twice than stress about something you can get help with! When planning a wedding with the DCC you get a hands-on wedding coordinator to take the stress away, so my top tip is to utilise the experienced staff we have available.

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

Dancing shoes! It is a feature we see more and more, and it is such an amazing feature to provide for those guests that need a break from their uncomfortable shoes so they can dance all night long.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Elegant, Stunning, Versatile, Historical & Unique

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Our beautiful, expansive grounds. They are steeped in local history and provides the perfect canvas for capturing newlywed memories. And if the weather is not right, our grandiose staircase makes for stunning pictures.

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

Not yet, but who knows - maybe some day.

What’s your favourite canapé?

That would have to be our smoked salmon and mascarpone mousse!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Our lovely Chef's homemade doner kebabs in flatbreads - they are a 'survivor supper' must!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

This would have to be a tie between our sunken lounge with uplighters that can be set in different colours to match your colour scheme and our beautiful staircase leading to our hotel rooms.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

It would have to be our professional and friendly staff. All DCC team members go above and beyond to ensure you and all your guests have the best day.
