Stuart and Jennifer McLean onby
We chose Keavil House hotel as our wedding venue after going to the restaurant for lunch on the Saturday, which was excellent and then attending the wedding fayre on the Sunday. As soon as we seen the Elgin suite we knew that's where we wanted to get married. The room was beautiful with its tented ceiling and chandeliers.
We booked a whirl wind package for November which included food and drink for 50 day guests, cake, dj, chair covers and sashes amongst other things. We were able to meet all the people who would be involved with our wedding at the wedding fayre. This took a lot of the stress out of the planning as they were altogether in the one place. We tasted and chose the design for the cake at the fayre, seen examples of sashes and even got an excellent deal for our gorgeous centre pieces.
The events team at Keavil were brilliant and always there to answer questions. Our wedding co ordinator, Jamie ensured through a couple of meetings that we knew exactly what to expect, timings for the day and costs etc. Jamie was also present on the day and made sure everything went to plan. We could not fault him or the other members of staff at Keavil.
Included in the whirl wind package was a free spa day which was great! It included use of the spa facilities, facial, nail painting on fingers and toes and also a lunch in the restaurant. Again couldn't fault anything, it was excellent. The only suggestion I would make is that maybe there could be the option for either a girly day (which I had with a friend) or an option for the bride and groom to have a spa day together prior to the big day.
We stayed the night before the wedding and the rooms were excellent, we actually preferred them to the four poster suite we had on our wedding night, just more modern.
The day it's self was amazing, everything went to plan thanks to Jamie and the staff, the food was excellent and guests said it was one of the best weddings they had been to!
