If you are interested in having an intimate main wedding reception of 50 guests or under the Trinity Capital Hotel in Dublin is a superb venue. It couldn't be more centrally located – right beside Trinity College. The Capital is a four star hotel, with a uniquely exotic and stylish decor. It was the first venue we considered and those that we subsequently viewed left us under-whelmed in comparison. In our experience, there can be a certain atmosphere of exclusivity in hotels of this calibre. In the Capital, the staff could not have been more down to earth, welcoming and helpful.
We were very fortunate to have Amanda Brolly, Reservations and Events Manager as our main support in planning the reception. She was completely reliable throughout our contact with her – responding promptly to every communication and acting on any requests we made immediately. She was highly discerning in her judgement of how everything should be laid out on the day. Amanda also dealt with the room reservations for our guests. Her efficiency took a lot of stress off our shoulders and was all the more impressive in that she was carrying out these tasks at very short notice – we had been quite late in organising our wedding.
John Pigott was the Capital's Duty Manager on the night before the wedding and throughout the reception and afters. He was in fact with us until we left on the afternoon of the day after. John put in a virtuoso performance from start to finish. He was consistently thorough and supportive at each step, and without ever making us feel crowded. There were so many individual touches to his management of the event (not to mention the pre and post events) that went beyond any level of service we had ever experienced. The rapport that John established with our guests is one of the main reasons that many of them have made plans to stay at the Trinity Capital on their next trip to Dublin.
We departed slightly from the standard wedding schedule – our ceremony was at 11:30; our drinks reception started at around 13:00 and we had our dinner at 15:30. A DJ played from about 20:00 to 00:30. Although we finished up earlier than most weddings we got very positive feedback from our guests on this format. Increasing the tempo of the schedule slightly helped to maintain people's energy and interest.
The Trinity Capital function room accommodates approximately forty guests when round tables are being used. We sacrificed a bit on space and managed to include ten more guests by using rectangular tables. The room was stunning and the food was perfectly cooked. We had sixty extra people for the afters but the hotel could easily have catered for at least twice that amount. The Capital's selection of evening food was in keeping with the elegance and excellence of all that came before it.
The Trinity Capital staff ensured that we were able to keep the stress of the wedding to a minimum and they helped create an atmosphere in which all our guests felt welcome. The seemed to be really enjoying the event and could not have been more professional or accommodating in their dealings with us. All of our guests were highly impressed with their rooms. Our wedding suite was the ultimate in comfort and classiness -- friends and family who dropped in usually took a few minutes to form sentences after they had finished gasping. And as well as all this, we got excellent value for money.
