Top Wedding Tips

We believe the best ceremony time is 1pm

We also get asked a lot what is the best time for the wedding breakfast and evening buffet? We recommend the wedding breakfast to be about 3pm and the evening buffet at 8pm

6.30pm is always a great time to start the evening reception

Weekend stay for a Wedding
My family and I recently stayed at The Baltic Inn for a family wedding. As we were part of the wedding party we decided to stay for two nights. What a beautiful venue for a celebration. The rooms we stayed in had freshly laundered bed linen, lovely and clean facilities, more than enough clean fluffy towels for each guest and complementary teas and coffee in the room. More importantly there was free wifi which as any parent would know is a must with children and technology! The staff at the hotel went out of their way to make us feel very welcome and were very accommodating and helpful. The function room held quite a lot of us but there was still plenty of room in there. The Wedding lunch was absolutely beautiful. Nice and hot and very tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Baltic, well worth a visit and highly recommended.

Our perfect wedding day Friday 1st September 2017
Well what can we say we are so glad we chose to get married at The Baltic Inn on Friday 1st September 2017.The day couldn't have gone any more perfect!

From the initial planning and discussions with the lovely Viv Davies in the beginning down to the fantastic and helpful Dan who took over our wedding plans,everything went better than we expected.

The food,the accommodation,the staff,the setting,the venue just everything was spot on.We just couldn't have asked for a better day.Nothing was too much trouble as Dan was just a text/email/phonecall away.

On behalf of myself and my now husband Shane Jones we can't thank you and everyone at The Baltic enough.Highly recommended as a wedding venue we just wish we could do it all again!

Love the new Mr and Mrs Jones xxx

Daughter's Wedding Evening
Easily surpassed all expectations - the place was professionally run, with efficient and friendly staff.
The Manager, Daniel, was great to deal with (as was the Chef), and all our requests and queries were dealt with.
The 150+ guests took over most of the Inn, but the function room was perfectly laid out, and enough staff laid on to cater for the large number.
The buffet was superb, but the only down-side was the fact that the food was removed without much warning. Some of the immediate family had to spend so much time mingling that they missed out - it may be worth considering an announcement 15 minutes or so prior to removal of the buffet?
Accommodation was also excellent, as was the breakfast.
We would not hesitate to recommend this place - thanks Daniel.

I may be slightly biased as I got to marry the love of my life, but here goes anyway -

The entire experience was fantastic. Daniel in particular was a great help and couldn’t do enough for me and my wife throughout the entire process.

The venue was magnificent, very spacious and laid out extremely well.

The food was fantastic and drinks reasonably priced.

The rooms were also fantastic, I could not find a fault.

And most importantly everybody had a fantastic time.

Thank for making a special day even more memorable

We got married at the Baltic on the 11/8/18 and we are over the moon with the service they provided! All staff were very friendly and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble for them. The food on the day was simply outstanding and very well presented on the plate. All our guests commented on the food, especially the amazing desserts (we went for the choice of Summer Fruit Pavlola or Sticky Toffee Pudding). All emails leading up to the big day were replied to straight away, which made the task of planning a wedding a lot easier.

We couldn't have asked for a better day - it was perfect! Thank you to all at the Baltic Inn.

My name is Daniel and i manage and operate the wedding side of things here at the Baltic Inn. My main role is to make sure that all wedding couples who book their special day here with us receive a bespoke and personal service which is to the highest of standards. I pride myself on attention to detail and truly feel we have created a real gem of a venue which is perfectly suited to couples of all ages and requirements. Our traditional rustic cottage look is slightly different to your stereotypical wedding venue but I feel we offer so much more in terms of what we provide. From the service to the food to the accommodation are all of the highest quality and all our wedding couples comment on the high standards that we provide. I look forward to working with you on this most special of occasions.
