Catherine & Luke

Autumn Wedding

I just wanted to say such a huge thank you to you and your team for making our day so amazing!  I can't begin to explain to you how tough it was planning this from overseas...but I didn't have a single second of stress that day as i knew you had it all in hand.  The food was incredible - please let your chef know this. I've been to weddings before and have had others tell me that usually the food isn't that good in the grand scheme...this was exceptional and i enjoyed every mouthful - i know Luke did too!  You also have a such a fantastic space to work with that really we didn't need to do all that much in the way of decoration and that certainly made things easier. Your entire team were accommodating and really genuinely nice.

Summer Wedding

We were very happy with every aspect of the hotel, including the service we and our guests received from the hospitality staff and especially with the delicious food that was served at our wedding breakfast. The bubbly and cupcakes in our room were a nice surprise too! All our guests enjoyed the day and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Macdonald Elmers Court Hotel & Resort is a beautiful venue with a wonderful team working there and it will always be a fond part of our very special memories from our big day.

With regards to the day itself, Linda was fantastic! Everything ran so smoothly, she took such good care of us throughout the day and we didn't need to worry about anything, we couldn't have asked for a better day. I would be very grateful if you could pass our thanks on to Linda.  The food was excellent, everyone commented on how great this was.

It certainly wasn't by chance that our day was so enjoyable and memorable and went so well, would you please pass on our most sincere thanks to Lynda Love for everything she did for all of us on our day. Lynda did an absolutely fantastic job and worked so hard, and made sure her whole team did too. She really did look after us in every way she possibly could, she was so thoughtful and helpful, even some of our guests commented afterwards on what a good job she did.

The staff were amazing, especially Christina who was simply fabulous. She was great with everyone especially the children who loved her! She made sure everything was perfect and it was! She is a credit to the hotel.

The food was also great and everyone felt looked after.

Thank you both Ellie and Alex for all the help and support you have given us.Thank you also to Ellie for making the ballroom and Waterford room look perfect.

It was everything we hoped it would be. Everyone thought it looked gorgeous! You are both fantastic, we couldn't have done it without you both.

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work to help make our wedding a success. We had an amazing day with everything we wanted. Please also pass on our thanks to Christina and the rest of the hotel staff who really went out of their way to help us with everything. We were touched by the kind note left by Mark J Dicks and would love to accept the complimentary membership to the leisure centre if you can let us know how to arrange this. Thank you once again for a fabulous stay!

Karen and Jed

I worried about every single detail as I just wanted everything to be perfect, I needn't have worried because the day turned out just as we had wanted it. It was the perfect venue for our 1920's theme. The ceremony room was amazing with the huge windows overlooking the beautiful gardens and the Solent Coast. The reception and wedding breakfast were very well organised, and the tables looked absolutely amazing. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and we were able to get some amazing sunset pictures to treasure forever. Many of our guests said this was the best wedding they had been too which has made us beam with pride!
