We couldn't have wished for more!
Deans place hotel was the first (and only!) Wedding venue we visited. As soon as we arrived we knew it was 'the one' with its warm and friendly welcome, cosy, intimate yet special and grand feel as well as it's beautiful setting. The staff could not have been any more helpful and accommodating through the build up, the big day and after! Our day went without a hitch, our family and friends shared with us what a great day they had (a lot of them ended up in the pool after our wedding breakfast, the weather was glorious). Our wedding was the day of dreams, we couldn't have wished for more!
