Here is what a few couples had to say about their special day at the Grand Pier.

I chose to get married in the north tower room on the grand pier for a quirky wedding option. The staff were friendly from the word go. Our coordinator Charlotte was always on hand whether by phone or email leading up to the big day. We had lots of contact to make sure everything was as we wanted. I used the dressing room provided which was kitted out lovely with comfy chairs, mirrors, tea and coffee. There was a phone in the room to contact staff if we needed anything, which proved to be a good idea. The ceremony room was beautiful, with a walkway and bows on the chairs as I wanted. We had drinks waiting after the ceremony, and were allowed to use the balcony of the larger ceremony room for photos which was much appreciated. We had access to the room from 11.00am and were allowed to have a car drive up to the ceremony room...yes we drove down the pier. Overall a relaxed and calm day, which helped massively!

We recently held our wedding ceremony and an afternoon tea on the Grand Pier. From the original enquiry at a wedding fair to the day itself the process was smooth. The events team were excellent with nothing being too much trouble making our day so special and individual. The venue was set up perfectly, the room being curtained off so that it was intimate for the number but also expansive enough not to feel crowded once the tables for the afternoon tea had been set up. We would recommend the afternoon tea, it was plentiful and delicious. All of our requests were catered for and it was the perfect, once in a lifetime day we wanted. In the words of one of the guests ‘ the day gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling’ and the venue greatly contributed to that. We would highly recommend this as a wedding venue of choice.

The night was totally amazing thank you, it was absolutely perfect!! I can not thank you enough for making it the perfect end to a fairy-tale week. The feedback I have got is brilliant, everybody has mentioned how impressed they were with the food. I thought the decoration was spot on thank you Cat, people also mentioned how lovely it looked and it definitely wasn't too much or too little. The staff were all fantastic and it was brilliant seeing them dance behind the bar too, I love it when staff get involved, as I feel it all adds to the night (growing up in pubs myself, the night always made a difference when the staff were having fun too). Once again thank you, thank you, thank you and a million more thank yous. I can't get over how brilliant the night was, I would definitely recommend Captain Jacks and the Pier, I am so glad that I choose the Pier and that I had your help to co-ordinate, all-in-all perfect!!!! Sending so much love to you and the team for making our blessing day complete.

We both had such an amazing day. It was better than we could ever have imagined. Huge thank you to you and everybody on the pier for their hard work. It made a big difference. Honestly there was absolutely nothing we would have done differently. So the best advice I can give to you and the staff is keep up the good work. Again we cannot say thank you enough. We are both extremely happy that we chose the pier as our venue.

The day was absolutely fantastic we both had a great time as did all of our guests. The venue was perfect for us. You did a fantastic job on the room all day. It looked absolutely stunning after the ceremony turn round. I must congratulate you personally on a well-run event, you did great and really put nerves to rest…nearly!! I had 5 or 6 people that are from a catering or events background historically and they too said you did a fantastic job. All your team were also great and very attentive so please thank them from us, anything that was missed by them we notice you pick up very quickly. You appeared to be everywhere! The food was good too, absolutely no complaints from anyone, which is unusual! Soup was great, Lamb cooked well (sweet potato mash great) and the desserts were fab- for me especially the choux bun. It was a really special day and flowed so well and that was in the main down to the way you ran it. For that I will always be thankful to you.

Just to say a heartfelt thank you for all your hard work in the run up, hosting and follow up to our wedding. You and your team were amazing and everyone commented on that fact. We couldn't have done it without you. Your professionalism, good humour and immense skill were invaluable to us.
