Wedding Testimonials

Carolyn & Tom, WR 30.09.2019

We had our wedding in Seafield in September and what an amazing day it was. From the very first visit to Seafield we knew it was the venue for us. From the style of the hotel, to the stunning views of the sea from the clubhouse and the secluded Ballymoney beach a short stroll away for the chance to take some memorable photos. Very few venues give you an opportunity for that. Even aside from these amazing plus points, we were sold by Sonia alone. From our very first meeting Sonia could not have made us feel any more comfortable and welcome. Even though it’s her day job and must have been through this process countless times, we felt that Sonia was as excited as us for our wedding. She really made us feel that we were the only wedding they were hosting. Sonia’s attention to detail is nothing short of amazing which made the whole process totally stress free for us. I heard that planning a wedding was supposed to be stressful, maybe other couples just need Sonia in their lives! Kerry and the reservations team were also amazing for ensuring our guests were catered for on-site. Plenty of options available from the hotel rooms to courtyard suites for larger groups. Then onto the day itself, it could not have gone any smoother. Patrick and the team did an amazing job and we cannot thank them enough. Patrick really comes into his own and everything runs like clockwork, it was complete perfection and that’s only the start. He does it in his unique style that not only do you know everything is under control, he also has you in fits of laughter with his whimsical demeanour. He should really have his own TV show. Add in the quality of food, the amazing Oceo Spa and the hotel setting, it’s really a no brainer. We had the ceremony in the marquee, reception drinks in the clubhouse and meal in the Aine Suite which works really well as you are not confined to the one room for the day. We cannot thank Sonia, Patrick and the team enough for giving us the most amazing day of our lives.

Leann & Brendan, WR 28.09.2019

Thank you to all the team in Seafield! From the moment we walked into the Hotel for our first meeting, we instantly fell in love with the professionalism of the staff and all the hotel had to offer. The whole events team were superb. We had Patrick and Sonia looking after us on the big day. These guys were amazing, their eye for detail and Patrick's words of wisdom really made everything work seamlessly. No request was too big or too small for Sonia or Patrick. We just cannot believe how lucky we were to find this hidden jewel in Ballymoney. Thanks guys, it was an awesome day and totally unforgettable.

Natasha & Derek, WR 24.08.2019

The biggest ever Thank You to all the staff at Seafield Hotel for making our wedding day not just fantastic, but truly out of this world and a real dream come true. From the Accommodation, to the Grounds itself, the award winning Oceo Spa to the beautiful Marquee, the gorgeous food, wine and cocktails, and not forgetting the amazing wedding and service teams who went above and beyond for every single detail, including our very special wants and desires for our doggies to be ring bearers for the day! Patrick Kickham-Lennon with his "hands on" but "not in the way" style of conducting everyone, was absolutely first class and a marvel to be seen. Seafield Hotel & Resort Spa really is first class. Thank you all so very much!

Kathtrina & Rory, WR 05.08.2019

We held our 50’s themed, Rockabilly styled wedding in Seafield Hotel in August. From the first engagement a year and a half ago right up to the big event, we were surrounded by a support team from the hotel who fully embraced our madness and helped us realise all our ambitions to have a truly magical day. Seafield was the first venue we viewed and we booked almost immediately. Our booking was based not only on the great venue and facilities but more importantly on the people we met. From the earliest stages, when we were still prospective customers right up to the final details we were made feel important, valued and respected. Every single member of the team front of house, back of house and management were great to work with, professional and came through every time with solutions to any challenges we encountered. The events team are like having your own personal wedding planning team in your pocket and advised us on every aspect of the wedding, without candor. Trust us, listen to their advice they really know what they are talking about. The events team coordinated and marshaled the wedding party, the photographers, the band and all the other people who came together to make our day more special, stress free and enjoyable than we ever thought it could be. The best testimonial we can give to all at Seafield, is that we met as customers but we left as friends.

Aine & Ronan, WR 13.07.2019

We had our wedding in Seafield in July and it was incredible from start to finish! We knew from the very first day we went to view the hotel that Seafield was the perfect venue for us! We met Sonia, our wedding coordinator, on the first day and she was so warm and friendly from the very start! For us, it was very important that we connected with and trusted our wedding coordinator as they play a huge role in organising and planning your wedding. We felt so at ease from the very start with Sonia and knew that we would enjoy working with her! The view from the clubhouse is just breath-taking which was another big selling point for us as we had our reception drinks there and our day two celebrations. Within the 12 months leading up to our big day, we were in constant contact with Sonia and the reservation staff Mandy and Kerry, who were so helpful and accommodating. Sonia went above and beyond for us in helping to put all our wedding ideas into action. From planning our wedding decor, to our table plan, to recommending suppliers, to helping us chose the food, the list goes on! Sonia played a huge part into shaping our wedding day into the perfect day that it was! She is brilliant at her job and was able to turn what can sometimes be stressful times for us in planning our wedding, into fun and enjoyable times! Sonia has been short listed and has won various awards in Ireland and deservedly so. Every time we went to Seafield for meetings we got such a warm welcome from all the staff. In the weeks coming up to the wedding, we then met the events manager Patrick who is great craic yet meticulous at his job! Patrick, along with Sonia, helped us put the finer details into place and finalise the last few bits! He made our wedding day run so smoothly while also bringing great fun to the day. The service and food on our wedding was second to none. Loads of our guests were raving about the finger food at the wedding reception also. We sang and danced the night away till all hours and it was the best day of our lives!

Orla & Matthew, WR 12.07.2019

We had the most incredible day here, in large thanks to the wonderfully supportive staff, in particular Sonia in the run up to the wedding and Patrick on the day. No query was too big or small while being so professional and responsive. Every aspect of the day ran smoothly, the staff are so professional but also made the day really fun. I can't put into words how at ease we felt as we didn't have to worry about a thing. The venue itself is stunning. We used the marquee for our ceremony and it was draped beautifully, then the golf club for our drinks reception and the views over the grounds from the balcony were amazing. All of our guests commented on the incredible food as a particular highlight and I have to agree, plus the service staff at our dinner were impeccable. We honestly could not recommend Seafield as a venue highly enough, we're so glad we chose it and will never forget this wonderful experience.

Hazel & Dave, WR 21.06.2019

Where do we even begin! We got married in the Seafield on the 21st of June 2019. When I say our experience was incredible from start to finish, it's an understatement. We booked our wedding in February 2018. From the first day we met Sonia and saw the hotel, we knew it was for us. Sonia is amazing and helped us through the organisation of the wedding from start to finish. Nothing we asked for was too much. She is a treasure to the hotel. On the weekend of our wedding, we stayed Friday through to Sunday. We had 130 people in attendance over the whole weekend. Everyone was so happy with everything from food to accommodation to the service in the hotel and the spa, and much more. Our wedding was that Friday which was the best day of our lives and partly down to the hotel itself, Sonia, Patrick and the staff. On Saturday, we had about 80 people in the Clubhouse for another fantastic night. While on Sunday, we had about 40 people in the hotel. Family and friends just kept telling us what a fantastic weekend they had and how fantastic the hotel and staff were. There's so much more we could recommend. Overall, we would recommend this hotel to the highest standard and if anyone has their wedding in Seafield, it will be the best day of your life!

Courtney & Shane, WR 14.06.19

We had such an amazing day, still buzzing now. Everything went so incredibly smooth and all our guests commented on how fantastic the food was. All the staff were absolutely fabulous and professional. There is nothing we could fault at all with Seafield Hotel from start to finish. Sonia and Patrick make a wonderful team and we could not have asked for a better day. Also, thanks to Patrick for putting his chauffeur hat and driving us to the door of the hotel :)

Lydia & Clarke, WR 01.06.19

From the very start of our experience with Seafield three years ago it has been nothing but a pleasure. From the moment we met Sonia, we knew it was the place for us, she is absolutely incredible. Nothing is a problem for her, any request we had was granted and she is just so positive and friendly, her attitude is infectious. Any time we had to contact her, she always got back to us straight away. Every time we had to meet her, we would actually be looking forward to seeing her. When Sonia was away, we met with Stephanie who also amazing. Patrick was in charge of our wedding on the day and I cannot even describe how amazing he was. We had a slight delay getting to the hotel in relation to our transport. Patrick was waiting for us at the door when we arrived and he reassured us immediately not to worry and that everything will go ahead perfectly for us. He completely put us at ease and we felt like we had always known him. The service at Seafield for the reception and the dinner was impeccable. The food was incredible and the bar service was excellent. We had a second day in the Clubhouse which was also amazing. We would also like to mention Kerrie in Reservations who was so lovely to deal with in relation to rooms for guests. Sharon in the Greenroom for breakfast was excellent. Any couples that are looking for a stunning, elegant hotel with amazing service and an impeccable wedding team can look no further than Seafield.

Deirdre & Michael, WR 25.05.19

We booked the Seafield Hotel less than 8 months before our wedding and dealt with Sonia from day one. She was so helpful and always came straight back to us on any questions we had. On the day, we had a beautiful outdoor ceremony and Patrick whisked us down to the beach afterwards for pictures. Everything from the food to the service was perfect and we would recommend the Seafield to anyone.

Ruth & Liam, WR 24.05.19

We have been to Seafield for weekends away in the past and always knew we’d love to get married there...and we honestly couldn’t have made a better choice. From the time we went down for a viewing right up until the big day itself we couldn’t have been made feel more special. Sonia, Patrick & Stephanie are absolutely amazing and made us feel like our wedding was the only one they were organizing. Nothing was too much to ask and every little detail was perfect. On the day we knew we didn’t have to worry about a single thing because they had everything covered. We can’t thank them and all the staff at Seafield enough for making our day so special and would recommend it to anyone.

Laura & Keith, WR 04.05.19

Just a quick note from myself and Laura to say how much of an amazing day and night we had in Seafield for our wedding. From start to finish, it was an incredible experience. We have to thank all the staff involved in the build up and on the day. They were so attentive to us and our guests, all we have heard since is really great things from everybody. We will be highly recommending Seafield to anyone who is getting married as it is such a beautiful location and the service is exceptional. We will see you again on our anniversary 😊

Lynne & Daithi, WR 31.12.18

We got married at Seafield over Christmas and can't thank the team enough for making it an amazing day for us! It's a gorgeous hotel, the food is amazing but it's the kind and attentive staff that make it so perfect! Thank you all so much Patrick, Sonia & Stephanie, we truly cannot thank you enough for all the help, guidance and work you put in to making our day so special.

Caoimhe & Gary, WR 2.10.18

The staff in Seafield Hotel are an absolute pleasure. They went out of their way to ensure we had not only a perfect wedding day, but also an enjoyable and special build up. From the first meeting, Sonia was a dream. We felt completely comfortable with her, and knew our wedding was in safe hands. She took care of every fine detail in a professional and friendly manner, and she was always so lovely to talk to. The happy, friendly staff set the mood from our clubhouse arrival drinks and into our dinner in the function room. Our guests were delighted, not only with the service, but also the beautiful food they enjoyed that evening. We cannot recommend Seafield highly enough; they enabled us to have a wedding better than we ever could have imagined.

Rachel & Fergal, WR 13.09.18

My husband Fergal and I got married in Seafield Hotel and Spa Resort on 13th of September. From the very start of the experience we were so impressed by everything to do with Seafield. All the staff are amazing and in particular The Wedding Team. Sonia is extremely professional and has amazing attention to detail. Nothing was ever a problem for her and she couldn’t have helped us more. She was brilliant from the very start. Patrick is brilliant and his experience really shows. He co ordinated the timing of everything on the day perfectly. He made everyone feel relaxed and nothing was a problem. They both really exceeded our expectations. To any couple who are trying to decide on a wedding location we thoroughly recommend Seafield Hotel and Spa Resort. From the setting, the food, the decor and most importantly The Wedding Team we really could not recommend it more. We feel very lucky to have had our wedding ceremony and reception in such a stylish venue

Suzie & Greg, WR 28.07.18

From the moment we first looked around and met with the team last year we knew we were in safe hands. I have worked in the hotel industry for 11 years and never seen such level of customer service and organisation amongst a team. Stephanie, Patrick & Sinead were just some of the staff we were dealing with they are a credit to the property, a dream to deal with, but i know all too well it takes a entire team of staff to execute an large event so to all the staff across the board of Seafield hotel we thank you. If we were to sum it up in few words, The day in entirety was everything we dreamed of.... and more!

Edel & Dakota, WR 18.05.18

Our wedding at Seafield was beyond the perfect day. The team and Patrick went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met and that everything was perfect on the day. Organization and professionalism from the both of them and the staff was tremendous. We were blessed with the most beautiful sunny day and the food was soooo good. Both the ceremony room and the reception room were so stunning, and the view was just amazing. I would recommend this venue and staff to anyone getting married. It was truly the most amazing special day, that we will cherish forever.
