My Wife and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at Keavil House on June 21st 2014. We picked the Mountbatten Suite at Keavil which we committed to based on the professionalism and excellent friendly service of the staff. Keavil is a beautiful hotel, but the great service we received when just going there for dinner and when meeting Jamie wins over any other place we visited.
The process of organising your wedding at Keavil is made easy by your events manager who helps you organise your big day. Starting when you book the venue and pay the initial deposit, you can then pick one of the wedding packages, but you do get flexibility.
We had around 75 during the day and about 15 at night, which seems perfect for the Mountbatten Suite. Confirm your numbers between a month and two weeks before the big day. Around this time, you meet with your co-ordinator a couple of times to finalise all the details which Jamie went through with us very professionally. Any questions you have during this time, no problem, you can contact your events manager by email directly
Ohe big day. We were lucky enough to have great weather meaning we could have the ceremony outside. Keavil organised this beautifully, with chairs facing the trees at the bottom of the garden, on either side of the red carpet.
Our ceremony went spectacularly and when we walked down the carpet towards the double doors at the patio, Jamie and Mags were standing to greet us with glasses of bubbly for us and our guests.
The food was outstanding, and extremely well received by all of our guests, some people couldn't stop talking about the beef. We were attended to very well by Mags, she went above and beyond the whole day.
Our wedding at Keavil was fantastic and a dream come true. It completely blew our minds how amazing it was. You can never quite plan for how things might turn out, but the staff at Keavil had everything under control from the very start. Their care and attention was second to none.
