I had my wedding at the Oakwood Arms Hotel Shannon on 14th Feb Valentines Day this year. My Husband and I had a Civil Ceremony performed at the Hotel and the wedding reception afterwards. I would highly recommend this hotel as a perfect wedding venue. From start to finish they were amazing and we could not have asked for a better day. This hotel does a wedding fair every Sun at the end of each month for a certain period of time where you can see the room as it will be on the day taste the food and offer refreshments, from the moment we booked until we checked out of the Hotel two days after the wedding we were given the royal treatment. The Wedding Co-Ordinators Frances and Rita were excellent they looked after everything and made sure that the room was decorated exactly the way we wanted it nothing was a problem and I could contact them anytime I needed to. The Managers Amit Chopra & Ted Germaine could not have done enough for us, they really took into consideration the importance of this day is to a Bride and Groom, we could not fault any part of this day, the service the food and the overall running of the day was superb. They looked after everything and my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy the run up and the day itself. The civil ceremony room is beautifully decorated with a white light tree and a big window which lets the light flow in no matter what the weather is like it was the nicest room by far that we viewed for a civil ceremony. We got married right in the middle of the storms this year, I was worried that my dress might have been ruined making the travel over. They contacted me to say that if I wanted to get dressed in the Hotel they had my room ready for me and would make sure I could come in the back entrance so none of my guest could see me arriving until I was ready. Everything Ran on schedule, Rita our wedding co-ordinator on the day was on the ball checking with us and our family that we were happy with what was going on and there was no stress or delays at all on the day. All my guest commented on it being one of the best meals they have had at a wedding and really enjoyed the cocktail reception we had they said from checking into checking out anyone who said had only good comments. The honeymoon suite is lovely and we loved the vintage style room we also could not have any photographs taken outside due to the bad storms but were amazed at how many nice spots there are around the hotel for inside photographs. Oakwood Arms is definitely a hotel to consider when booking your wedding in the Clare area especially if you are having a civil ceremony. The Registrar herself who dealt with our wedding even said to her that she loves doing weddings in the Oakwood as they are always so organised and professional.
