'Our wedding day at the Mercure Exeter Southgate Hotel on the 6th October 2018 was amazing!

It was a very special day that we will treasure forever. A big thank you to the staff who supported us on our wedding planning journey and also on the big day. All the guests commented on what a happy and well organised event the wedding was.

The food was delicious, the staff were very friendly and accommodating and the room looked great. Nothing was too much trouble and the whole day flowed smoothly. I would recommend this venue to any couples looking for a place to get married.'

Top Wedding Tips

Don't be worried about not knowing where to start, organising a wedding can be extremely stressful! Ask your wedding co-ordinator for advice or check out Pinterest for wedding checklists.

Remember it's your day and as much as family and friends are important, make decisions based on what you and your partner want. The day is about you, so don't spend your time trying to please others.

Get creative- if you're on a budget it doesn't mean you can't have everything you want. Look around and try and find ways of doing it yourself. Again, Pinterest can be great for this as can blogs.
