Sharon & Arne onby
We first met you at the Southern Brides Exhibition in City Hall in January 2017. Immediately we warmed to you, you were very excited for us on our recent engagement and you were excited to play a part in planning our Wedding Day. Also you were very informative which we found extremely helpful. We knew very quickly that you were a genuine and caring person.
From the first day we walked through the Courtyard up to the hotel for a wedding fair in January 2017, I knew I was walking into a very special place, instantly I loved the Hotel.
The Wedding Fair was simple, with only a few suppliers this meant that I could imagine that I was walking through the Hotel on our Wedding Day, I could see the set up and feel the magic. We sat down with Conor (he no longer works at the Hotel) for a chat to see what the Hotel could offer and it was clear straight away that nothing was a problem and that the Oriel would do what they could to make our Wedding Day all that we wished for.
We did go view another Hotel but it did not make us feel as special as the Oriel did, it didn't give us goosebumps like the Oriel did and it didn't listen to us like the Oriel did.
The decision was made for us, our Wedding Day would be at the Oriel.
The entire process of planning our Wedding was made so simple. Absolutely nothing was a problem and any time we met you or spoke on the phone, honestly it was like speaking with a friend I've known all my life to plan the most special day of our lives. You sat with us and chatted about our interests and you always remembered them. This made us feel like we were friends, that we were important.
Elaine you have an amazing calming influence, from the beginning right to the day before the Wedding, you made me feel like everything was ok and organising this day would be easy. And it was easy with your help.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Elaine, James and Staff of the Oriel for making our Wedding Day one that we will treasure forever.
