When we had our very first look around Whinstone View we knew it was special. The surroundings and the venue are truly stunning. We initially met Dawn one of the wedding coordinators and she was so helpful throughout the process, really helped us feel organised. We had our final meeting 1 month before and finalised everything with Dawn. The day before the wedding we could set up the room with our decorations prior to checking in the lodges, we met Lucy and Tobi the other wedding coordinators who are just a vibe. They really helped us feel at ease when we were extremely nervous. They ran through everything again with us and made sure everything was still as planned- they were accommodating to a couple of last minute inevitable changes. The night before we stayed in the lodges, our family stayed in all the lodges and I must say they were all beautiful. So spacious, the beds comfy, shower felt luxurious and the hot tubs really helped us feel relaxed. On the morning of the wedding we had breakfast delivered by the restaurant which was brilliant for us to have whilst getting ready in the lodges, the staff really made it easy for us. The coordinators came to see us on the morning and made sure we were ok, again helped us feel at ease and really took the pressure of us. They were about to direct all the different vendors and everything about the venue looked amazing. Food and drink is one thing we worried about- we needn’t worry! It was beautiful, everything was beautiful. From the canapés to the brownie and ice cream- everyone complimented how beautiful it was. The night and day guests again complimented the evening food saying how beautiful it was and the chips are amazing. Tobi and Lucy were about all night- they were constantly making sure we were ok, the guests complimented how friendly and chatty they were and they really helped get the party started. I know it’s cliché but it really was the BEST day ever. It was so perfect. A special thank you to Dawn, Tobi, Lucy, the bar staff, the chefs and everyone else at Whinstone for making our day.
