When it comes to planning a wedding there is nothing our Wedding Co-Ordinators don’t know! One of them, Sharon King has been planning weddings at our Oxford Thames Four Pillars Hotel for the past 14 years and must’ve helped over 1000 brides plan their special day over the years.
There are a few special things to remember before approaching a venue about your special day.
1) Where would you like to get married? In a church, in a meadow or in a licensed premises like a hotel?
2) Who would you like to invite? An estimate number of guests is key to selecting the right venue as rooms will vary in size.
3) What style event are you envisaging? This will help set the scene for the venue! Are you dreaming of a religious ceremony with a traditional wedding breakfast? Or an open ceremony in the outdoors or looking for the ultimate wedding venue in an old castle or medieval barn?
It’s always a good idea to get out and about and see venues first hand to get a real feel for a place, the ambiance, the staff, the service and the welcome!
Most importantly, remember the day is your day and try and reflect yours and your partner’s personality into the proceedings and don’t be influenced by other family members who may have other ideas.
You will see from our testimonial page how Sharon has played a key part in making our past wedding couples a day to remember and we’ve even got a few baby tales to tell too.
Over the next few months you’ll be able to read about how to plan your big day and special things to think about on the Four Pillars Hotels blog!
