wedding and helped me every step of the way which I will be forever greatful for. I felt at great ease the whole day and had every faith that Tami and her team had everything under control. Everything was just perfect from the rooms at the hotel to the food and drinks. Leading up to the wedding as you can imagine I got very anxious and nervous about little details but Tami was very quick to put my mind at ease and assure me she had everything under control ( which she did) we used the DJ provided by the hotel as part of the package and he was amazing so lovely and the guests loved him! if your thinking of having your wedding at the Mandolay then go for it you won’t be disappointed and you will have the best day and if you’ve already booked your wedding at the Mandolay then I’m so jealous because I want to do it all over again!!! Thanks so much again to the Mandolay and especially to Tami for the most amazing wedding! Love the new Mr & Mrs James x

From the start of our wedding planning process the team at The Mandolay Hotel were beyond welcoming and helpful. We first came across them while trolling through the internet looking for local venues for our wedding, and when we found The Mandolay, we started to fall in love. They had a wedding

fayre coming up and once we got there and had a look round and met the team, we couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else.
Tami was a delight to work with and made the whole process so fun and stress-free every step of the way!
On the day we had a few vendor issues, but Tami and her team took it all in their stride and dealt with it professionally and quickly - you wouldn't have known anything had happened!
There are not enough words to express how grateful we are to everyone at The Mandolay for making our wedding more perfect than we could have ever hoped for!
We would 100% recommend this venue to anyone!

The day was perfect from start to finish, it's as simple as that really.

We always felt in complete control of events. The sales team gave us options and guidance, they listened to all of our requests and made good on every commitment. We chose our own menu, service style, timings, music choices,

in fact everything we wanted.

As a 'more mature' couple we were fairly settled on our choices anyway but the suggestions we received helped us to make the day even more memorable. There were things that we would not have dreamed of asking for (fish and chips, served in newspaper for one of my relatives. The idea started as a joke but turned into a spectacular high-point of the day).

The service could not have been better, attentive without ever being overpowering. The staff could not have been more helpful and every single person seemed to have a smile on their face, a sign of a happy team.

I can't think of a single thing that I would have changed, ours was a small wedding by modern standards, just 30 of us, it was the best day ever.

Thank you so much for everything you did for us. Our wedding was magical and we literally loved every second.

For me, everyone getting on the dance floor with us for our first dance is a memory I’ll treasure.
