Choosing a wedding venue is up there with the most difficult decisions to make when planning a wedding. On top of all the hundreds of things you have to consider in great detail, the location is really at the heart of your big day. The food, the celebration and the coming together of family and friends should be nothing short of perfect. Here are 3 top tips for helping you make the big decision.


  1. Reputation

Even in our world of fast paced technology and digital at every corner we turn, you simply cannot beat word of mouth when it comes to choosing a wedding venue. Ask around and get testimonials – no-one’s opinion will be of better value to you that the people who have been there.


  1. The food

The best way to thank your guests and to ensure they are well fuelled for the party is to make sure the food you serve is to the highest standard possible. At the Valley Hotel, we are fortunate to house the finest chefs and the finest food standards available. Our wonderful bride and groom Conor and Irena  recently remarked:


“Another favourite was the food, all our guests commented how the food was the best they have ever had at a wedding. We knew the food would be good through Paul the head chef who has trained with some of the top restaurants in London before returning back to the family business.”


  1. Service

You’ll know from the moment you enter a wedding location if it is right for you. Service is everything and you should expect nothing but the finest. At Valley hotel, we pride ourselves on our service levels of excellence. Our attention to detail, specialised wedding staff and devotion to ensuring your day is perfect is present from the moment you first come through our doors.


Your wedding venue will play a huge role in shaping the ambiance for your wedding, so be sure to choose wisely. Take your time, investigate and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
