I had my wedding reception at the balmoral suite on 20 April 2013 and I can hand on heart say that I can't fault anything.
I booked my wedding about 2 years in advance therefore we had plenty of time to plan everything. As fellow brides will probably know planning a wedding is more difficult that you'll ever imagine and on numerous occasions there were times that I had to contact bartle hall to ask questions and ask for advice. The girls were so helpful and no question was deemed silly and there were very prompt in replying. This is very reassuring when you're planning a wedding!
We met with Nicola on a couple of occasions and ran through things and she was very accommodating with some of our requests especially with the food - we chose the chicken ( which was amazing by the way) however one of my family members doesn't eat chicken so Nicola offered a preferred dish of lamb for him. Also my husband and I changed our veg and pudding too! Noting was too much trouble.
On the actual day Hailey met us as we arrived and kept us informed all the way through about what was happening and what was going to happen. We also hired a wedding singer all day who was acting as our toast master and Hailey and Matt liaised with each other which was great as I could just enjoy the day without worrying about what was happening.
I want to make a special mention for Hailey as she was truly amazing on the day. We had over 100 people at our reception , with children who were having diff meals and some adults on veggie options etc and the way she owned the room instructing waiters and waitresses was amazing. Hailey knew exactly what was happening and what food needed to go where , so massive thank to Hailey she is a credit to the team at Bartle Hall.
The food was so good and alot of of people at the wedding commented on how delicious the food was.
The room was set up beautifully and we had quite a lot of tables but the room Didn't feel too cramped at all and I also didn't feel that the guests at the back were too far away.
The gardens are so lovely and we had fantastic weather so the kids were able to run around and make use of the little park area at the rear... And the adults!!!
We had the ivy cottage as our bridal suite which was right next door to the room which was brilliant for nipping back and touching up make up Etc.
There is nothing more to say other than the day couldn't have been more perfect and I would highly recommend Bartle Hall to anyone for a wedding venue and a hotel. Thank you so much for helping contribute to our special day.
