Annette and Kenneth August 30th 2013
When myself and Kenneth got engaged we narrowed our wedding venues down to 4 venues, the first we visited was Ballygarry House Hotel on which we met with Padraig.
When Padraig went through everything with us, showing us the amazing Pavilion for the drinks reception and fabulous luscious green gardens, the beautifully decorated dinning room and the different options of menus to suit all budgets we were instantly (so to speak) "sold" we picked our date there and then and booked as we both knew we did not want to see any other venue.
Throughout the planning everyone at Ballygarry could not have done enough between Helen, Thys and Padraig they all made everything so easy, as planning a wedding can be tough going but with everyone at Ballygarry they made it so easy!
Unfortunately for us our wedding morning didn't go according to plan when our church singer had not shown up which has caused a little distress (but the bride and groom showed so that was the main thing) :)
When we arrived to Ballygarry Padraig was waiting as we arrived up in the car and came straight over to first congratulate us and secondly explain he had heard what had happened at the church and he promised to go above and beyond to make sure the rest of the day went perfect!
And truth be known he went more than above and beyond! Nothing was an issue with him, he was always at arms length away if we needed ANYTHING!
For example my dad being a diabetic and at drinks reception needed something to eat to keep his sugar levels normal, I quickly said this to Padraic and in less than I'd say 60 secs he had a sandwich out!
When we were outside having photos taken a big shower came out of nowhere and Padraic quickly took my bouquet in one hand me in the other and got me inside as quick as possible (very funny moment)
Both Padraic and Thyse really personalised everything getting to know the bridal party and guests with Padraic even helping the boys with their speeches !
When it was time to sit down for dinner all I can say is AMAZING!!! The food was exquisite and served with great professionalism from all the staff! All our guests are still raving about the food!
The night was a great success with our guests saying "it was the best wedding they had ever been to"
The following day when sadly it was time to leave, we sat with Padraic and went through the day and we explained how happy we had been with everything and he even offered to drive us home!!!!! When we left we both agreed it had been like we had been dealing with an "old friend" throughout as it was just an amazing experience and amazing people to deal with! All I can say is I wish I could do it all over again!!
I would highly highly highly recommend Ballygarry House Hotel to anyone getting married and will continue to recommend to friends in the future, they made our special day the best day of our lives!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
