Perfect in every detail!
We cannot thank Charlotte and staff at the Grand Hotel Brighton enough for making our special day run so beautifully and smoothly. Charlotte is without doubt in the right job! From our first contact with her and at every stage right up to our wedding day she was so helpful and flexible about every single detail and request. A true, talented and passionate professional. The waiting staff and our wedding day contact Will were absolute stars as well. They looked after us so well and were so friendly and professional. We would highly recommend the Grand for your wedding ceremony and reception.

A very special place
We had the most incredible day at The Grand, it was made even more special because lockdown started again the week after. It was our second time attempting to get married, but The Grand exceeded our expectations in every way. The building is beautiful and an incredible landmark in a cool city. There are so many great photo opportunities both indoors and out, and the Brighton Bandstand is just a few minutes down the road. The food was fantastic, all of our guests commented on how lovely it was and there were clean plates all round. The asparagus and brioche starter was especially good, and the Jaffa cake gelato to die for! Last but not least, the staff really make the place here. We were so well looked after by Charlotte, Andre and the rest of the staff- anything we needed seemed to appear as if by magic, nothing was too much trouble. Charlotte was there before the ceremony to make sure everything was in order which was very reassuring. One of the staff even helped getting a great group photo on the balcony. In short we would highly recommend The Grand, we had the most incredible weekend, I felt like a princess and I can't wait to go back, hopefully for our first anniversary!!!

Incredible experience from start to finish
We cannot thank the Grand Hotel (especially Charlotte) enough for all they did for us to make our day extra special despite all the challenges and changes due to COVID. We stayed in the stunning King Suite for three nights to make it an extra special weekend- highly recommend doing this as so much space for all bridal party to get ready not to mention the view! We had to change our layout and reception venue a few times due to change to rules and every time Charlotte was very flexible and supportive- offering us many options as they have so many beautiful spaces to choose from. We had the most beautiful reception in the end being in the Pavilion Suite with views of West Pier. The food was exceptional which all the guests commented on the next day and the service was fantastic. If you are looking for a venue that offers a incredible service, many options of spaces and luxury from start to finish then I suggest booking to go and visit the Grand. You will not be disappointed!
