Wedding receptions – uniquely you

If you’re looking to treat your wedding guests to a reception of true character, you couldn’t get a better match than the Orchid. A venue steeped in history yet recently refurbished to create a stylishly modern setting, the Orchid blends glitz and glamour with genuine personality. A timelessly romantic venue, the hotel also provides accommodation that’s flexible enough to meet your needs perfectly. With two totally re-designed function rooms, receptions from 30 to 160 guests can be catered for with ease. Our re-fitted kitchens enable Chef and his talented team to deliver show stopping spreads of classic and contemporary cuisine. And all of this coordinated from start to finish by your dedicated Orchid wedding planner with enthusiasm, imagination and an unerring eye for detail.

“Christina, I seldom use the word ‘perfect’ regarding situations or events, but you truly made our wedding ‘perfect’. I would not change anything. First, you were so wonderful in supporting us, suggesting ideas, using our ideas, etc. To me there is not an organiser who could do better than you did. Secondly, the entire staff at The Orchid Hotel were fantastic. Every single person made us feel like our wedding was the most special event of the year. I know it was not, but they all made us feel that way. Your part in our lives was so very important. You gave us the greatest day of our lives. I felt that for one day the whole world supported us. I just cannot express enough the impact you made on our lives in making our wedding the most wonderful event of our lives. I know we may not see you again, but please know you have a special place in our hearts. Do you realise how important your work truly is? ”

All in all, we think you’ll be smitten from the moment you set foot in the Orchid. These days, there are countless choices of wedding venue but few, if any, can match our unique blend of elegant setting, fabulous food and wine and flexible function and guest accommodation. And none can rival the enthusiasm and professionalism you’ll experience – from our first meeting to the big day itself. In short, we think you’ll be swept off your feet.
