Welcome to The Grand Hotel

Being Wedding Coordinators at The Grand is a dream come true for both of us - it’s so rewarding to help couples plan their dream day. The Grand is often called ‘The White Wedding Cake’ and when you step inside it’s like entering another world - a traditional country house with stunning sea views. If you come for a tour you’ll find that the staff are really welcoming, and you’ll be treated to a glass of champagne while we chat about your wedding plans. We’ll work hard to make your dreams come true, and give you memories that you can cherish forever. Our favourite part of the job is when couples drop by after their honeymoon to show us their wedding photos! If you’d like to ask us a question or book a tour, please get in touch.

Yours faithfully
