Our wedding was a long time in the planning and we liaised with three professionals at The Grand during that time; Gabrielle, Melissa and Stella at the end. Initially we were concerned that this might affect continuity in the planning but nothing could have been further from the truth – all three

were excellent. We have to especially mention Stella who was our point of contact in the three months leading up to our day (and was even there on the day itself). Stella was well organised, an outstanding communicator and had superb attention to detail. Planning a wedding has a lot of moving parts and potential pitfalls but she really took the stress out of the whole process. Every single member of staff worked tirelessly to make us, and our guests , completely welcome. The standard of the food for the wedding breakfast and evening buffet was superb. We'd also like to mention how efficient and unobtrusive the serving staff were – they were choreographed with military precision and all our party were served with hot food within minutes of each other. At the end of the day we misplaced something which was eventually recovered with the help of the staff – who couldn't have been more efficient or helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending The Grand to anyone who wants to marry in spectacular surroundings whilst being treated with the highest standards of efficiency, courtesy and outstanding professionalism.

We had an amazing time from start to finish, thank you so much to you and your team for making sure everything ran smoothly, everything we needed was there whenever we needed it.
