Wedding Bells at The Park…
~Mr & Mrs Gordon ~ 15 June 2017 ~
This summer we had the pleasure of hosting Vikki and Joe’s special day, and they’ve kindly written a little something so that they can share that day with you too…
“In considering wedding venues we had a long list of boxes that needed to be ticked, and The Park met every one for us. We wanted a hotel with lots of character but also with a few traditional features. We wanted friendly professional service and most importantly, great food. Our expectations were high and the team at The Park went over and above to make sure our day was one to remember.
I got ready in the Bridal Suite of Peebles Hydro which worked out perfectly as there was lots of space for me and the girls to get our hair and make-up done, get dressed and enjoy the views with a nerve calming glass of fizz. The separate beauty room was fab too.
Our ceremony was held in the The Gallery at The Park which was a lovely choice as it gave us an intimate setup for saying our “I do’s”.
We popped back up to the Hydro to have our photos taken on the grounds while our guests enjoyed the drinks reception in The Park’s Ballantyne’s Bar. We joined them shortly afterwards making use of the old Routemaster bus outside for more pictures and in the gardens among the beautiful rhododendrons.
Our wedding breakfast was served in the Restaurant. It’s one of my favourite rooms as I love the mix of traditional and quirky. It’s got original wood panelling and chandeliers, upcycled teacups and saucers and the large windows let in loads of natural light. The Chef excelled herself with each course as delicious as the next and the front of house staff worked seamlessly to give us smooth service and, importantly, keep the glasses topped up.
A quick turnaround of the Restaurant and we were back in to dance the night away.
We can’t thank The Park enough for hosting our wedding, making our guests feel welcome (our harder to please family and friends are still raving about it!) and ensuring our big day was everything we hoped for and more. It was quite simply the best day of our lives.”
