Sue and I, married at Stonehouse Court on the 31st December 2016, New Years Eve. We had both been married before but still wanted very much to make it a special day. Our friends, family, loved ones, the Gloucester Registrar (who married us in the Caroline Suite) staff at Stonehouse Court, photographer Malcolm Edgeworth, DJ Marc and Stefan the photobooth owner certainly all helped to achieve this. The setting was perfect. Stonehouse Court, the Caroline Suite and hotel facilities were excellent. Fred, the Sales and Marketing Manager, Mario the Hotel Manager and their respective teams all worked diligently to ensure everything ran smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything was delivered with a smile, politeness and helpfulness. In fact a number of our guests commented on how helpful and polite the staff were. The room changeover from the Wedding Ceremony to Wedding Breakfast to the evening disco was carried out with precision. The Wedding Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. It was fun sampling the menu options in the run up to the Wedding day. The planning for the Wedding ran smoothly and relatively easy because of the support, help and advice that we received from Fred. The Honeymoon Suite also added to the charm of the day.
There were, however, so minor niggles.
We had great expectations of the Hog Roast in the evening but the presentation of this was disappointing. Perhaps our expectations were too high when you consider that it was New Year and that there was a New Years Gala dinner going on in the main hotel.
We also noticed, belatedly, when the dessert was being served that the Wedding Breakfast wine had not been replenished at a more appropriate time. On the night we were told that there would some fireworks at midnight. Close to midnight this was changed which caused confusion. This lead to our Guest "Piper" being messed about.
Despite these small niggles we would certainly recommend the Stonehouse Court as the perfect Wedding Venue.
