You wont be dissapointed
I got married at the whitehall Hotel 9n the 25th March 2022. Our original date was 25th June 2020 the whitehall accommodated all changes and helped out throughout as stressful as it was and sometimes me feeling things were unfair they were as fair as they possibly could be in such hard, uncertain times. On the run up to the wedding I had meetings and calls with Dave & Anita at the whitehall who were very professional and helpful and no question was too small. They couldn't do enough to ensure our day went ahead exactly how we wanted it, even let me take all my things 2 days before the wedding, dresses, venue dressing things and stored it all. On my arrival with my bridesmaids and mum's the night before, Anita had set up a table with prosecco and put girlie music on for us and was so helpful, let us practise walking down the aisle and couldn't do enough for us. We all had a meal which was lovely and spent some time in our pj's in the bridal pamper room which is a great addition to the hotel. The morning of the wedding Dave & Anita went through everything with me to ensure everything was perfect and as the day went ahead they kept checking all was OK, got involved with our guests, it was absolutely amazing from start to finish, the rooms looked stunning ans our guests said it was the best wedding they had been too. I can't thank Anita, Dave and the staff at the whitehall Hotel enough for all their hard work to ensure our day was amazing. It was well worth the wait. Pick Whitehall for your big day.. You won't be disappointed the. Thanks again the new Mr & Mrs Maher xxx

Excellent food
Absolutely fabulous for our wedding on Friday! From the moment we walked in to view the venue to the numerous visits we had inbetween and of course on the day we were made to feel special and they couldn't do enough for us! Including being very supportive and accomodating when postponing from May. All of our guests commented on how good the food was! Big thanks to Pete and Dave in particular who were running around after us and always had a smile on their faces. Thankyou all again so much for making our special day amazing! Love Mr and Mrs Ribalta xx
