Becki & Dan opted to have their ceremony, a BBQ wedding breakfast, and an evening reception with DJ and photo booth, all at the hotel. The emphasis on having fun, the atmosphere relaxed; the groom sporting chinos and braces rather than a formal suit. Wedding photos were snapped across the road in the Connaught Gardens.
We can’t recommend the Sidmouth Harbour Hotel enough for a wedding, we had an absolutely amazing time.
Without a clear view and because of the amount of wedding venues on offer in our area we really struggled to pin point what is was we actually wanted. We visited so many different venues but none of them were quite right. I had seen an advert online for the Sidmouth Harbour Hotel early in our search but assumed it would be out of our price range because the wedding package looked amazing and the hotel itself is so special.
As we couldn't find something that we both thought suited us we went to an open day at the Sidmouth Harbour Hotel and we're so glad we did. We were greeted with a glass of bubbly (always welcome) and some canapes to try (which were so tasty) and we both immediately felt comfortable and relaxed - we were concerned that we might get the hard sell which we had at a few other venues but the team at the Harbour were lovely.
We sat down with Milly and told her what it was we were looking for, she showed us what our options were and gave us some advice based on the sort of wedding we were looking for (informal and fun). We had a good look round the hotel and spa and were blown away by how lovely it was, we really had our hearts set on it from that point, the location of the hotel is perfect and the view from the hotel gardens is fantastic, even on a cloudy day.
A day or so after our visit Milly emailed over our quote and to our delight it was within our budget, I was so pleased we were able to have the wedding and reception in the same place so our guests did not have to get transport between venues or home. Milly kept in contact with us all the way up to the wedding and we had a few meetings (and many emails), she was always there to guide and advise us and any questions we had she answered straight away, nothing was too much trouble.
Our wedding was amazing, a lot of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to and I believe a lot of that was down to the hotel staff and especially Milly. Her attention to detail is second to none and she really cared about our day and making sure it was the best it could be. We had some last-minute changes which were no problem to Milly, she re-arranged the tables for us and made everything perfect. The food was so tasty and there was plenty of it - we opted for a BBQ to keep the mood light and informal.
I would highly recommend having a wedding at the Sidmouth Harbour Hotel - it was everything we wanted and more.
