Creating Unforgettable Memories: A Journey Through Celebrations with Our Memory Maker at Delta Hotels by Marriott Bexleyheath


Life is a collection of memories and here at Delta Hotels by Marriott Bexleyheath we believe that they need to be celebrated. Join our Memory Maker, Laura Sutton who shares her expertise and advice on planning events that create unforgettable memories. 

Could you tell us a few of the essential components that go into creating genuinely unforgettable celebrations?

To create unforgettable celebrations, me and my team are focusing on:

Excellent hospitality and service throughout the event provided by our experienced conference & banqueting team is a big part of your celebrations to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Efficient Planning: The events team are there to ensure that your planning is streamlined to create those memories to last a lifetime.  

With these components in place, your celebrations will be truly unforgettable.


What are some common pitfalls or mistakes that people often face when planning social events, and how can they be avoided?

A common mistake people make is underestimating the importance of pre-planning and failing to allocate enough time for it. To ensure a smooth experience, we kindly request all final details 28 days prior to your arrival. Any changes after this deadline may lead to service barriers, as we require notice to order necessary items for your celebrations. Providing all details before the 28-day mark helps us arrange everything seamlessly, avoiding any potential disruptions.


How far in advance should hosts book a venue, and what factors should they consider when making their selection?

We recommend as early as possible to allow time for the planning, invitations, decorations and supplier notice. 6-9 months before the event is enough time to plan your celebrations!


When it comes to choosing a theme or style for an event like a wedding or birthday celebration, what factors should people consider?



When selecting a theme or style for events such as weddings or birthday celebrations, several factors should be taken into consideration. These include personal preferences, cultural, venue size and shape, budget, and the overall atmosphere desired for the occasion. We can cater to any theme and style with any colour scheme - our preferred supplier for external decorations has multiple colours that would best suit and fit your vision to become a reality for your special day. 


Can you provide examples of memorable food and beverage pairings or signature cocktails that have been a hit at past social events?

Yes, of course! Our Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand pairs beautifully with our pan-fried fillet of salmon from our Memories Made Classic Menu and our roast fillet of sea bass from our Extra Special Menu. 


Can you share any heartwarming stories from celebrations you've helped to plan?

Organising a wedding for a wonderful couple was an incredibly fulfilling experience. Seeing them return after their big day, sharing their cherished memories and showing me photos brought immense joy. Months of planning and nurturing a relationship with them culminated in witnessing their happiness throughout the celebrations. Being part of customers' events, celebrations, and weddings is profoundly rewarding. We're dedicated to leveraging our years of knowledge and expertise to ensure your special day is unforgettable for you, your loved ones and all involved.


Could you share any tips on how to plan the best Birthday party?

Yes, absolutely! The small touches that can make the party WOW your guests- this includes the Donut Walls, Burger Bar and Chip and Dip bar which has been a huge success along with our canapes.
