We cannot put into words how much of an amazing weekend we had
We cannot put into words how much of an amazing weekend we had. It was literally the best day of our lives and we had the most dreamy day fro start to finish regardless of all the restrictions in place. I don’t think I would have got through the weekend without you, you are truly amazing at your job! We would like to pass on our gratitude to the rest of the team; they were all wonderful and the service was impeccable. They ran the day perfectly. Thank you to the chef also, everyone commented on how delicious the food was and the presentation was amazing. Thank you so so much for everything!

Absolutely perfect and a completely wonderful occasion.
Thank you for making our Wedding day absolutely perfect and a completely wonderful occasion. Throughout this difficult year the Wedding Planner has always been on the end of the phone to deal with any queries as to whether our day could go ahead and if so on what basis and put my mind at ease more than once. Special thanks to the team on the day for their support. Nothing was too much trouble and everything went to plan despite late cancellations. All of our guests commented on what a great job they did and how calm and organised they were. We had every confidence in them and they helped make our day the best ever!

So helpful and the most beautiful venue!
Lauren and the team at The Grand, York have been exceptional. Their commitment to making our wedding special has been wonderful and nothing is ever too much to ask. We have been so lucky not only to have a beautiful venue for our big day but also a wonderful team behind the scenes to make it even more special. Due to the pandemic we had to postpone our wedding - which was heartbreaking. The team at the grand have been so supportive, and have offered us lots of support via calls and emails. It been such a difficult time but their support has really helped. We know that whilst our day might not be what we exactly had planned, the staff will try their hardest to still make it special for us! Thank you so much!

The Grand Hotel has been fantastic
I cannot tell you how fantastic the Grand Hotel has been!! You and everyone who were there for our weekend were absolutely brilliant. From the gorgeous men at the front doors, the reception staff, the staff at the event, the staff who kept coming to our rooms with gifts or messages etc. The Gentleman in charge on the day itself was just lovely!! The staff worked so hard all day and we can’t sing their praises enough. You made our day run so smooth. The food, the decor and absolutely everything was gorgeous. We came away with the best memories that we will treasure for life. You are part of a fabulous team of people and we want you to know that you are all very special to us. We won’t forget everything you did to make our day what it was. The feedback from our guests was fantastic. You all deserve some recognition for all your hard work. We’ll be back at the Grand in the new year for definite but for now take care and thank you once again.

amazing day which we will never forget
Firstly thank you for Saturday all in all it was an amazing day which we will never forget and that was massively down to you and your organisation skills. The food was absolutely outstanding and just what we had hoped we couldn't have asked for more with regards to that. You really are a huge asset to the hotel and the day would not have been what it was without you.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It would be difficult to just choose one moment, but it has to be the moment that our newly married couple walks back down the aisle after their ceremony with their loved ones!

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

Whilst planning only think about what you want, don't worry other people's opinions - it's your day.

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

One of our most recent favourites is a couple arranged for every guests place card to have a hand drawn photo of them, next to their place card. It was so detailed and a perfect memento for the guests to take away with them to remember the day!
