Top Wedding Tips

Make a provisional guest list for your day and evening before searching for venues to visit.

Take the time to visit venues & meet with the wedding coordinators & suppliers in person - you'll want to know you can trust and get on with the people that will be putting together your wedding day.

Think about the practicality of a venue from you and your guests' perspective. For example, hosting the ceremony in the same place as the reception eases the pressure and expense of travel for all.

Everything you could hope for
A week later and we still haven't come back down to earth - we just want to relive every second of our wedding at the Mercure Tunbridge Wells. It's been a long journey, complete with COVID postponement, but it was worth every single day of the extra year's wait. We cannot thank the hotel enough for their support concerning this - they made what could have been a very stressful and costly process so easy and at absolutely no extra cost to us at all. Sophie and her team have been a dream, and on the day, the coordinators, restaurant/kitchen staff, etc were all wonderful. Professional, attentive and so friendly! We would recommend this venue to absolutely everyone. We had the wedding anyone and everyone would wish for!

Choose this venue!!
We cannot fault this place! They have been absolutely fantastic from the day we got in touch, all through the planning and then on the day. More importantly, they could not have been more helpful during the disruption with Covid. We had to move our day twice and they literally took all the stress away. Food and service on the day was fabulous and we can't wait to go back for our anniversary meal!! We love you Mercure!!!

Happy wife, happy life!
We cannot recommend Sophie and her team at Mercure Tunbridge Wells enough. I must admit, I didn't have much to do with the planning, but my wife seemed very happy with the service all the way through and it really was an absolutely fantastic day. Staff were brilliant, everyone had a good time, good value for money too. Wife's happy, I'm happy. Thank you Mercure

So accommodating!
Sophie made this experience as easy and enjoyable as she possibly could. She was always quick to respond, kept us in the loop with relevant government changes and was so flexible and accommodating with last minute changes and personal things we wanted to make the day special. We honestly could not have asked for more and we had the most special and intimate wedding thanks to Sophie and the team at the Mercure!

This team truly are experts!!
Sophie and the team at Mercure Tunbridge Wells, thank you so much for everything you have done for us. From helping us with the initial upset of moving our wedding due to Coronavirus, to putting together the wedding day that none of us thought we’d have – it was all still so perfect. As you know, one of our biggest worries for the day was my sister who has severe autism, but the staff made her feel so welcome and were so helpful, we all felt completely at ease with you. You truly are experts at what you do and we are so glad we picked you. We sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts and although we’re now heading into lockdown 2.0, we sincerely hope you’re able to open for weddings properly again soon!

The Mercure Tunbridge Wells - we chose well!!
We booked the Mercury Tunbridge Wells Hotel for our wedding in October 2020. After having to postpone twice, they have been amazing and made a stressful time feel easy.

The venue is beautiful, the wedding package is such great value for money and the staff have been amazing. We can't wait to get married here! Here's hoping we can have some guests!
