We got married in the Springfield Hotel on 30 April, and from start to finish, the day was amazing; completely beyond our expectations. We went with the Civil Ceremony and the All-Inclusive package, which really did make everything so simple. From initial contacts with Eileen and Pádraig, we were hooked on the hotel. We did visit one other venue, but it just couldn’t compare. Every single whim was catered for, and no request was ever too much or a problem. Eileen and Pádraig and the rest of the staff really did epitomise the definition of customer service. On the day, the ceremony room was amazing – just the right finishing touches to make everything seem so beautiful and intimate. We are still getting compliments on the way the room was decorated; everyone was just blown away. It was the first Civil Ceremony for a lot of people, ourselves included, and if we had any doubts about not going with the Church beforehand, we certainly didn’t afterwards. Fiona did an amazing job with the flowers. Gerry, our Pastor, was so friendly and had a great personality. He really contributed to such a lovely ceremony. On the day, Ger and Pádraig couldn’t have been more helpful and efficient. Everything went so smoothly; it was like a well-oiled machine. Terry, our driver was just lovely and chatty and did his best to make us feel at ease as we headed off for our photos after the ceremony. The room was transformed when we returned for the meal. The food was to die for; simply amazing, and no shortage of seconds and thirds for those willing to tempt fate. We know a few guests who tried each of the main courses going! Afterwards, the music was second to none. We chose The Breakers and they were amazing. John and the guys really knew how to get the party started and the floor was full all the time. We are still receiving compliments on all the music we had – from Something Blue Acoustics at the ceremony to The Breakers afterwards; we couldn’t have been more fortunate. Even 3 weeks later, people are still telling us what an amazing day it was, how much they enjoyed it, how divine the food was and how there was absolutely nothing they could fault. We couldn’t agree more with them. The Springfield surpassed our expectations, as they have with so many other couples in the past. They definitely have earned their reputation as a hotel that does weddings well. To Eileen, Pádraig, Ger and all the wonderful staff, thank you so much for helping to make our day so very special, and to those looking for a venue, go book your wedding in the Springfield. You won’t be sorry :) xxx
