The most amazing wedding day
Thank you for ensuring we had the most amazing wedding day. Where to start; 2 date changes, 3rd booked just in case, numerous phone calls from me & planning meetings. Nothing was too much trouble for you. We spent two nights at the venue, the night before where we had a lovely meal and a very enjoyable wedding eve party. The actual wedding day everything was perfect, everything ran so smoothly, food was amazing. To Kieran, you were just fantastic coordinating everything & everyone and handling my last minute nerves. Thank you so much for giving us an amazing day.

Service was exceptional.
I just wanted to send a little email to say another massive thank you for everything you did for Lauren and me on Sunday. We had the most amazing day; it ran so smoothly, and we both felt chilled for the majority! We cannot speak highly enough of The Waterside and all the staff we met along the way! The service was exceptional. Thank you once again, we will definitely be back down to visit and can't wait to see you again.

Staff cared about each and every guest
I attended a wedding and the staff were absolutely amazing, I have a lot of food allergies and they were so accommodating and understanding, I have to admit I was kind of dreading going thinking it would be pretentious but I was amazed by how much the staff cared about each and every guest.

We had our wedding at The Waterside on 7th November; beautiful venue, everyone who hadn't already seen venue commented on how lovely it was! A family friend has also decided to get married here after being at our wedding! Claire & Kieran were brilliant & catered to all our needs! We have booked to stay in the spa room again in January as we haven't got away for a honeymoon - the room was beautiful!

Can't thank you all enough.
My husband and I got married here on the 26-08-2021 🥰 what a day it was! I can’t thank all the staff from the waterside enough for how amazing they all were. From the meal we had on the Wednesday night where the staff were amazing to our wedding day were Kieran, Karen and there amazing staff kept us right and to waiters, waitresses and bar staff who helped throughout the day they were all amazing! To reception where Jade and Heather were there to answer any questions that were needed or help in any way. Both my husband and I can’t thank you all enough, you were all exceptional! If anyone is looking for a wedding venue this is the place. Thank you again. Mr and Mrs Butt 🥰❤️
