We got married at The Bay Tree in March, and couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. The wedding coordinators, Maureen and Helen, were brilliant - from the very start of the process they were friendly and helpful in responding to our questions, and worked with us to make sure that every detail was as we wanted it. We had a number
of guests with dietary requirements and we were able to tailor our menu for these guests, with Helen also ensuring that there was suitable evening food and canapes available for them.
On the day itself, Maureen, Helen and the rest of the team at the hotel were calm, efficient and professional, making sure everything ran smoothly and resolving any last minute queries so that we could relax and enjoy the day. They helped my bridesmaids and me to move our stuff over from their sister hotel, The Lamb Inn (where i had stayed the night before) to the Bay Tree, and made sure that my husband and I were able to have some time together after the ceremony (which we both really appreciated). We also had a card and gifts from the hotel left in our room, which was a lovely touch.
The food was amazing, and we also really enjoyed our menu tasting a few months before the wedding - the staff took so much time and effort in making the experience personal to us, and we liked being able to sample our food and wine before the big day.
Having exclusive use of the hotel for the wedding made the day so special and personal, and helped create the relaxed and fun atmosphere that we wanted. It was particularly nice to be able to just sit and chat with our guests in front of the log fireplaces in the bar and library. The hotel itself is beautiful - we stayed in the Oak Room which was huge but cosy and nicely decorated (and had a jacuzzi bath!), and a number of our guests also remarked on how nice their rooms were. Breakfast the next morning was great, with plenty of choice, and it was lovely to be able to have eat with all our friends and family before people headed home.
As soon as we saw The Bay Tree we knew we'd found our perfect wedding venue, and we'd highly recommend it to other couples.
