what our brides think
Perfection in every way!
Beaconside, from the moment I booked our wedding until the last drink was poured it was perfection in every way. I cannot recommend a beaconside wedding enough! When your planning your special day you have an image in your head of how the day will go and how everything will look and I can honestly say that my wedding at Beaconside exceeded my already very high expectations. The Beaconside team were so amazing and nothing was too much to ask . Everyone had the best day and it will be a day that I treasure for the rest of my life . The accommodation was just perfect and meant that the party could start on the Friday before our wedding and carry on until Sunday, family and friends were all together having so much fun Thankyou Beaconside for making my dream wedding come true x
Beaconside Feels like home to us!
We want to extend a huge thank you to Daisy, Mark, Ali, Vicky and the rest of the team at Beaconside. You helped us organise the wedding of our dreams and the whole day ran so smoothly; it was truly perfect.
It's a very special place that creates beautiful memories...
We got married at Beaconside House and it was without doubt the most beautiful, serene, relaxed and friendly environment you could wish for. The staff are angels (including Fred) and the venue exceeds anything I have ever experienced. I cannot thank any of the team more or recommend Beaconside enough. I am totally in love with Beaconside now, it's a very special place that creates beautiful memories so easily.
Amazing from Start to Finish!
Where to start!!!! Just to let you know that Alana and Matt's wedding weekend was ABSOLUTELY SUPERB. It was all amazing from start to finish. This is a fabulous venue. Stunning views and beautiful Wedding room and Glass house. We knew it would be fantastic but it exceeded our expectations. My husband and I did not get to meet Daisy the Wedding Planner but Alana and Matt said she was wonderful. I have had so many of our family and friend saying this was one of the best weddings ever. It was so lovely to have from the Friday to Monday. We were lucky with the weather so Sunday was great and the kids loved the pool. I will definitely be recommending Beaconside and it was well worth the journey. Thanks to all who was involved behind the scenes in making my daughter and son in law's wedding SO PERFECT.
