When I arrived at the hotel I was greeted by Ruth on the day and she made us feel that everything was under control. Exactly what you need for those wedding day nerves.

Our guests are still talking about how good the food was. Our menu went down a treat and this is due to high quality and effort

put into the courses. It was so nice to sit at the top table and watch everyone enjoying themselves so much.

We would especially like to thank Estella who was always at the end of an email or telephone call. Estella made us feel at ease in the lead up to our wedding day. Also we have to mention Chloe who kindly looked after us on the day. She so carefully ensured we were ok throughout the day by checking in regularly and made sure everything ran smoothly. Even before she finished on the night, Chloe came to me to ask if there was anything further we needed before she left.

We would highly recommend the Shearwater Hotel & Spa for your big day if you are thinking about it. We would struggle to find fault, I just wish the day didn’t go by so fast.

Best wishes, Cliona & Stephen
