wedding on Thu, 16th of March, 2023
From start to finish, Emma was an absolute dream to work with. She was very responsive to all email queries that we sent over the planning stages. Emma was very knowledgeable about anything we asked in relation to the hotel, the packages and the services that can be provided. I loved that everything

was clear and organised. We knew exactly how the day would flow and didn't need to make any last minute decisions on the day, which in turn made for a truly enjoyable day knowing everything was in place.
On the day of the wedding, John was fantastic. Our guests were looked after to a level that many never experienced before. Our guests could not get over the venue, the food and the overall service. A number of guests have said that the attention to detail around food service was phenomenal, staff picked up on the small things but it didn't go unnoticed to your guests.
The night before, we stayed in interconnecting rooms. On the morning of, we had hair in one room, make up in the other and could leave the dresses in the bridal suite until we were ready for them.
We had hoped to go to the forest for photographs but because of the rain the days before the wedding, it was too mucky. The day of the wedding we were very lucky to get a lovely mild sunny day, we got all of our photographs at the front of the hotel, the lobby and the secret garden and have absolutely stunning photographs.
We fell in love with the hotel from the first moment we visited and having the hotel to ourselves on the day felt very special. I was anxious about accommodation and ensuring that all our guests got back to their accommodation okay. Emma contacted the local taxi services to let them know they would be needed and it all worked out perfectly.
All in all, we could not be happier with how the planning process and the day itself went.

From the first day we spoke and met Emma, we knew that the Clanard Court was the venue for us. Emma and John bent over backwards to make our day so special, all our guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed our wedding from start to finish, and the food was out of this world. The

checking in with us and anything we ran by her was no problem.

The Clanard Court Hotel is such a beautiful hotel with beautiful staff throughout the hotel to accompany it, so friendly and welcoming.

The lovely girls in Revive Spa did our makeup applications on the morning of the wedding, they were so bubbly and chatty and made us feel so relaxed and made us feel and look beautiful for the day ahead.

Thank you so much for everything.

The best day of our lives.
The hotel could not do enough for us. From the day we booked the venue until we checked out the morning after the big day, nothing was too much for them.
Emma is an absolute star and I don't know how I would have gotten everything done without her. John was brilliant on

the day and everyone couldn't say enough positives about the food and service.
The ladies in the Revive Spa did my makeup on the day and bridal parties and they made us all feel so beautiful. I haven't one negative thing to say about the hotel or staff and can't wait to get back for a trip soon.
