East Lodge was the first venue we visited in February when our daughter and her fiancee set a wedding date. All other alternatives visited paled in comparison .We met with Charlotte who from our very first visit gave us confidence that the smallest detail would be addressed and that the wedding plans would progress without stress or worry and the wedding day would be the culmination of perfect organisation,collaboration and would be everything we wished for. On each visit we were greeted with care and friendliness and came away feeling that we mattered, we were not just another booking! The wedding day was perfect..the hotel was entirely at our disposal and there was no intrusion from anyone not attending our wedding. Charlotte and Emma's organisation was 'seamless.' The wedding service was held in the hotel in a room overlooking the lake and surrounding countryside views. The wedding reception followed and when the starter was served the buzz word around the room was wow! The meal was absolutely excellent, mouthwatering and served in style. Anyone with special dietary requirements were served without fuss as prearranged.
The evening buffet included hot and cold food all beautifully presented and served. The evening disco was well organised and run and requests were all played alongside music for all ages and tastes. Those of us staying overnight enjoyed luxurious and well equipped rooms with most comfortable beds in a peaceful setting to reflect on and savour one of the best days of our lives. Breakfast was a further culinary joy and our orders for cooked breakfast were carefully served by Emma and Dominic with precise timing so everything was eaten whilst hot and appetising i.e no horrors of cold toast etc.
Our whole family have no hesitation in highly recommending East Lodge as the ideal venue within the most beautiful setting for the most perfect wedding day.
We congratulate the management and staff for their sheer professionalism and consistently high standards of care and support throughout the process of collaboration and planning for our special wedding day.
I would just like to add one constructive suggestion and that is re the departure of the wedding guests who stay in the hotel overnight. We all experienced a need to allow enough time for gathering together before departure to reflect on the previous day's events over a coffee and without pressure. We felt that perhaps this time could be prearranged taking account of the hotel timetable of events of the day and therefore departure could be unhurried but with an agreed departure time
