The best day of our lives
THANK YOU so much to Megan, Claire, Stuart and everyone at the Sun Pavilion for the best day of our lives. Not just that but everything in the run up to the day. We changed the guest list last minute, asked for sparklers a week before, and vases to decorate the tables. They all bent over backwards to make our dreams possible. I would recommend the Sun Pavilion in a heartbeat.

Better than we could have imagined!
WOW - Simply the best day ever and better than we could have imagined. We are so grateful to Megan and the team for helping us to throw the most epic party. From our first meeting with Megan we felt fully at ease, she was full of ideas, eager to help and always responsive whenever we had questions. On the day our guests were blown away by how amazing the venue was as well as the terrace and the gardens. So many of our guests came up to us and said how fantastic the food was, the slow cooked beef was incredible! We would recommend the Sun Pavilion to any future bride and groom!! We also really appreciate the problem solving on the day in replacing the vegan option, the staff went above and beyond to help us out and we could not be more thankful!

Absolutely incredible day and venue!
Everybody at The Sun Pavilion from start to clean up days after the wedding has been so wonderful and accommodating. The planning stage was made so much easier with the support of Megan. With her by your side you will be able to do anything. Nothing is too much trouble and no question too daft! She's been an absolute rock helping us plan our big day and making sure it all runs smoothly on the day itself. I couldn't recommend the sun pavilion enough, from the bottom of our hearts thank you so much for making our day so special and making sure everything was perfect!

Incredibly special day made even more special!
Wow, wow, wow. What an incredible day!! It was perfect, thank you both and the rest of the team so much. Firstly, the organisation and run up to the wedding was fantastic. We always felt that things were under control and you helped in making the lead up to the day pretty stress free. The attention to detail was superb and your ability to move things around and keep a track of what flowers went where when etc… was so much appreciated. You made an already incredibly special day even more special!

Made My Dreams Come True
You made my dreams come true at the weekend, I had the best day ever and felt very taken care of! All of our guests were so impressed with the attention to detail from your staff, and thought the food was delicious! It was honestly like planning a wedding with a friend rather than a wedding coordinator! Just know that you all exceeded our expectations for the day, and we couldn’t have asked any more from you <3

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at The Sun Pavilion, Harrogate?


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

Enjoy the planning and don't focus too much on what you think everyone else wants your wedding to be like. Stay true to your own tastes and you can't go far wrong. Don't get too hung up on all the precise timings for the day, things will overrun and things will move but you're the only ones who will know.

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

Rather than giving a speech, the Groom wrote and performed a unique song for the Bride, accompanying himself on the guitar (no pressure Grooms!)
