As the Mother of the Bride my expectation for a fabulous wedding day was very high. Our daughter lives in South Yorkshire but chose to travel to where we live (near Skipton) in order to have her dream wedding at The Coniston. There was some initial issues with room reservations due to so many family travelling from distances but this was sorted in the end. The wedding planners were very helpful and supportive and very thorough with timings on the day. The Coniston lends itself to fabulous photography and spacious functions rooms that offer an exclusive part of the hotel for your event. My high expectations were met, even with a fabulous sunny November day. I would highly recommend both the service, venue and both of the professional and supportive wedding planners.
We want to express our grateful thanks to all of the team at the Coniston Hotel for hosting such a wonderful wedding for us. From the moment that we made our first enquiry, we found you to be helpful, trustworthy and full of good humour and patience. You made us a great offer for such a high quality venue, with so much already included, and it got better from that point on. From arranging for all hair and make-up to be done in-house at the beautiful Spa, to helping us with our fussy accommodation requests and changing banquet food choices, you made sure that every tiny detail was looked after clearly and with confidence.
We really didn't have anything to worry about, as you masterminded everything. We are so impressed at how hard you worked, whilst making it look effortless and enjoyable. You were even there the morning after to help us pack up and see us off. It was lovely. You set a great tone.
Everything else was perfect, from the stunning setting of the hotel, to the responsive reception staff, to the high standard of the accommodation, to the friendly bar staff, to the delicious food and the helpful function staff. Our guests repeatedly complimented us on such a good choice of venue. The cumulative effect of all of this worked its magic and meant that we all left feeling like we'd just experienced something wonderful. And we had.
We, along with our friends and family, now have many, great shared memories and we will think very fondly of you all at the Coniston.
Fantastic location and setting with beautiful scenary, our wedding was the most chilled out and laid back day we could have imagined and the staff couldn't do enough for us especially Sophie. I wish we could get married all over again...just beautiful from start to finish
I can't praise the conniston hotel highly enough! My amazing wedding co-ordinatior was fantastic, supportive and a wonderfully professional person throughout the whole wedding planning process. The setting was the initial reason that we booked our wedding here and we were fortunate enough to have stunning weather on our wedding so that all our guest were able to be outside and enjoy the views. I remember feeling extremely relaxed the night before my wedding after enjoying a bottle of prosecco in the heated outdoor infinity pool with my bridesmaids. I had my hair and make done in the spa on the morning and I was so happy with how they made me look and feel on my special day! It was a fantastic experience from start to finish.
The conniston was absaloutly outstanding! By far the best wedding venue around, everyone of our wedding party commented on how well day the day went and the added bonus of the gorgeous views :) From start to finish the wedding coordinators were top notch so helpful and nothing at all was too much to ask for. The food was amazing (and you got plenty) the service was excellent!! I have already recommended the conniston to many people & 2 of my friends have booked a wedding for next year too :) thanks again for making our day so special xxxx
Sharon and the team were beyond amazing. We turned up with over 50 boxes of items for the wedding day with a spreadsheet to match and the team were ever so help with all the aspects. One thing I had missed was batteries for the LED candles and Sharon popped out to buy some from the local co-op before I arrived.
Probably the best thing about the venue was that I wasn't a fan of the photos around the room. Sharon was brilliant and had them changed before our big day.
Nothing is too much and no is never said. Brilliant service!
We are an older couple and we only had 20 guests. Sharon the wedding co ordination was wonderful. They listened to our needs and met them. It was a lovely intimate wedding and the food was outstanding. Even the owner of the hotel took time out to share a glass of champagne with us (at his expense). The bridal suite was lovely. We were treat with great respect and even though we had such a small wedding we were treat with equal time and effort to a very large wedding. Can't praise them enough. All the little details, they helped chose a local florist, we had spa couples massage on morning of wedding. My only regret is that I cant do it all again. WOW
