Congratulations! You’ve made the biggest decision of your life. Choosing a venue to celebrate your joyous occasion comes a very close second.
Preparation plays a huge part in any choice made, which is probably why the hotel wedding reception experience is so popular.
In our hectic lives, planning this event can become distracting, perhaps even stressful.
Choosing our friendly, organised and efficient management team to supervise arrangements and proceedings affords you time to relax.
They will even work to exceed your expectations and ensure everything goes smoothly.
On Site Catering
The inclusive nature of a hotel reception package really appeals to modern couples. But there are more reasons to endorse this service than mere convenience. Peace of mind is also assured.
Independent caters are only answerable to themselves. However, our localised catering team pride themselves on an exemplary service.
We won’t stand to put our reputation and, more importantly, your dream day at risk.
Also, all our staff are familiar with the hotel facilities, meaning expedient service on the day – if you should need any additions or amendments to your reception.
Going for a hotel package means only our staff and our staff alone get near our kitchen.
Our experienced caterers have provided high quality food for plenty of similar events, so know how to enure hot food isn’t served cold and every guest is happy.
A hotel wedding reception also guarantees you expertise. By consolidating your service, you have fewer opportunities for misplacement, mistakes and drama.
Of course, you many feel the need for an outside cater, as they promise specific cuisine. But ask the question, have they organised hotel events before?
The answer may be a resounding ‘no’.

Relax after your big day
As bride and groom you’ll likely be the last to leave the party. Considering your early start you’ll have experienced a long day.
But why suffer an even longer journey home when fatigued? Book a hotel suite instead.
This means you can simply roll straight into bed, even enjoy a relaxing late night soak in the tub and be refreshed for your first day as a married couple.
A bite to eat
Experiencing such a hectic day, you may not find time to take advantage of that evening buffet. You may also miss breakfast, due to a nervy tummy.
However, resting up in a luxury hotel suite after your reception means you can order late night room service.
Enjoy the morning after
Request a late checkout and experience some well deserved R&R, enjoying breakfast or brunch. Let the bride pamper herself before you set off on your well-deserved honeymoon.
You’ll certainly benefit from this recovery time, recoup and start the first day of the rest of your lives together feeling fresh.
All these experiences help you achieve your dream wedding, so why not book with The Queens Hotel now and really take pleasure in your Hotel Wedding Reception.

Tips on preparing a romantic wedding suite
Being organised is most important. Don’t leave it too late!
Make sure that you inform our team of any necessary preparations well in advance. Making last minute decisions may see problems occur, and not being able to deliver on a romantic gesture last minute could really dampen your mood, leaving you feel deflated.
The bed is the centre piece of a bridal suite. It’s where you will rest your weary heads after an emotionally exhausting day. It should therefore look and feel comfy, as well as inviting.
Colour matching satin or lace sheets and pillow cases, with corresponding cushions creates an adoring look.
Of course, dressers and bedside cabinets can also be decorated to enhance any look.
Rose petals scattered across a bed, floor and tub is the darling of romantic gestures. But why stop there?
Co-ordinate the room with vases of roses or her favourite flowers to enhance ambience.
Even hang floral garlands from any door or mirror in the room. Alternatively, simply lay it on the bed. You can’t go wrong!
Votive candles are the safest and most economic solutions. Save costs on scented types, as the flowers will take care of this for you.
Position these strategically by mirrors and reflective surfaces to create warm glows and ‘fairy tale’ scenery.
Our 24 hour room service means you can indulge in some tasty treats.
But you can provide your own, by presenting your new wife with some romantic delicacies. Some good suggestions would be a selection of delicious chocolates, presented in a vintage basket with a bottle of your favorite wine or bubbly.
These treats will see you both feeling refreshed and could even carry this long into the night and early hours of the morning.
