Your Wedding Your Way

Your Wedding Your Way

22 March 2018

Looking for a wedding that reflects you and your personality? Sometimes when you’re planning a wedding it’s easy to get carried away following the traditional route: Ceremony, Wedding breakfast, Top table, Speeches. Whilst that’s perfect for some, and reflects what they would like to do, at the Mercure York Fairfield Manor Hotel we appreciate that sometimes couples want a wedding which mirrors their unique personalities; they may want a more informal wedding, or even a specific theme to tie in with where they met.

Anna, wedding co-ordinator at the Mercure York said: “When talking to couples, I always focus on the fact that they’re getting married, not me, so my first question to them is ‘What do you want for your perfect day?’”.  This focus on listening to guests and discussing their ideas allows the hotel to be flexible in what they can offer, and ensure the bride and groom have a day that matches their expectations, whatever they may be looking for.

Afternoon tea weddings can provide a more informal setting for the wedding. They can be ideal for those who have guests with specific food allergies or requirements, and can provide a fun and relaxed way for guests to enjoy the day. Table layout can be flexible, and the room can be filled with round tables. This can avoid the traditional top table for those who would rather not be the focus throughout the meal, and would instead prefer their guests enjoyed each other’s company and the food. Afternoon tea weddings and food selection can also be suitable if there are children attending the event, where a small selection of food may seem more appealing than a large formal dinner.

Do you fancy American themed food for you wedding? No problem. Need help and assistance to decorate the room to match your theme? That’s fine, the hotel can help here too. Whether you fancy a complete theme, or just specific menu items, you can have your wedding your way.

Looking for a wedding venue that will provide a wedding that is as individual as you are? The Mercure York Fairfield Manor Hotel can help, just call Anna on 01904 225 012.
