      My number one tip is to make use of your memory makers local knowledge! I have great relationships with all of the local suppliers so if you want a flower wall, balloon arch or an unusual theme I can help you find it.

      Fun Fact …. I've been at parties where they had stilt walkers - they really gave the event that ‘wow factor'!

      I'm loving the trend to have quirky pop up food and drink stations at your event, like bespoke gin or prosecco bars, or my personal favourite, the donut wall! My top tip would be to get as creative as you want to for any type of special occasion, we have a wish list item to compliment it!


      Fun Fact ………. I am getting asked more and more frequently for designer donuts, the designs are incredible!

      My top tip would be spend time finding the right entertainment, as it's always my aim to get people off their seats and onto the dance floor and having fun! Planning an event can be overwhelming so another tip is to create a timeline of what decisions you need to make and when and try and stick to it.


      Fun fact… the most eccentric request I've had for an event is a brass band made up of 20 musicians!

    Our Guest Book
    • I held my mother's funeral tea here in one of the private rooms. Can't recommend highly enough. Beatriz was so helpful and understanding, the room was lovely and the staff so helpful yet discreet. We had a selection of fresh and delicious sandwiches with soup and a variety of cakes and cookies. Well done team Marriott.
