We couldn’t of asked for a more perfect day!
From the beginning when we booked the Radison, Jill our wedding specialist was amazing! Kept us on the loop all the way through and also helping us with important details.

Even little things such as the food tasting was great, meeting the chef was also such a good little touch.

The day, again Jill and the team were great, keeping the day smooth. We had amazing feedback from our guests and it was all down to the Radison team for making our day special.

I would definitely recommend the Radison to others.

Our Big Day Was Perfect!
I contacted the Radisson Blu with my father with little more than a week to go until our big day. Our plans had changed and we were in need of a new evening venue. The team at Radisson Blu were superb, especially Jill Connolly who went through everything with us and helped us plan our important day

The most amazing day of our lives!
Jill we can’t thank you enough for the most amazing day of our lives! You made sure every little detail was perfect and didn’t forget a thing!

The customer service was 10/10, at every point in the day! The food was amazing all of our guests were raving about it, also, all of our guests that were staying loved their rooms, the extra little touches in our suite were beautiful and the personal message from you all was so lovely! We had many comments on the set up of a private breakfast area, people loved that!

Nothing was a problem, anything we needed we got instantly, everything ran so smooth we have no complaints whatsoever, we are definitely going to be recommending you to anyone who is getting married, the setting is just second to none!

We are planning to stay on our anniversary every year! We just love the Radisson!

Thank you once again for all the time you took to reassure me at every point along the way, for every phonecall and every email, for all of your patience and hard work!
We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding coordinator you were fabulous!

Best wishes from The Carr’s! X

We had our wedding here on the 23rd of September. The girls were amazing from start to finish. They could not do enough for us they were so helpful and kind. Our day was magical from start to finish and we got so many compliments from the staff all day! We couldn't of asked for a better team or location. The room they gave us was the unreal I felt like I had my own little flat for the day / night. Thank you so much! Xx

Radisson Blu was our wedding reception venue on 20th May 2017. The staff were so polite and could not do enough for us! Nothing was a hassle. The venue was set out beautifully for our perfect day! We were upgraded from a junior sweet to a presidential suite foc and even had chocolate dipped strawberries and champagne in our room on arrival. The bed was unbelievably comfy and everything was so clean! Thank you to the staff at the Radisson for all their efforts, cannot recommend enough!!!

We planned our wedding within 6 months, and couldn't have done it without the help and support of Rachel Cottiss. From the moment we arrived at the hotel to begin our celebration the whole team worked tirelessly to ensure every aspect ran perfectly. To name a few...... Thank you Carl, the other Rachel , Ashley, Ben, Sabrina and James. All worthy of a special mention. Our day was not necessarily traditional, but it and the hotel exceeded our expectations.
