Top Wedding Tips

Create a master checklist. You can find plenty of examples online broken down by the months, weeks or even days. Find one and adapt it to your own wedding.

Your wedding is all about the two of you, so try to incorporate as much of your personalities into the day as you can; guests should say ‘that’s so them!’.

Don’t forget what’s important! Wedding planning can be stressful but if you find it's getting too much, take a step back and remind yourself what your wedding is really about – marrying your love!

We would recommend this hotel very highly.
We had our wedding reception here which was an amazing day. From planning through to the day itself, Emma the Sales Manager, could not have done anything more to make the day special for us. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and professional, with the food being amazing and we have received so many comments regarding this.

The character of the building is why we originally chose this venue, and the Blenheim Suite where we stayed overnight is very special.

We would recommend this hotel very highly.

We had an incredible wedding ceremony and lunch at The Holt Hotel! The day was managed to perfection by Petr and his team who made our day so very special. We had a beautiful lunch following the civil ceremony, food was delicious and what a wonderful spread of deserts for our guests to choose from. Thanks to all of the team for putting big smiles on our faces and making our day memorable. The sun even came out for us to have some photos in the hotels beautiful grounds.

We felt the wedding package offered good value
We had our wedding at The Holt recently and were very pleased we chose the venue. The sales manager, Emma, was friendly and organised from the day of first meeting to the wedding itself. In planning the wedding, email communications were great with all questions answered along the way. The main function room was renovated fairly recently, and it was lovely. The gardens also looked great, albeit too cold to use them much on our wedding day. The food was delicious and guests gave many positive comments. We felt the wedding package offered good value, especially compared to other venues locally. Emma was on hand throughout the day, ensuring everything ran smoothly. Other staff were friendly and helpful also
