Wedding Testimonials

“Hi Alicia,

Can I take the opportunity to tell you how incredible you and your team are and how fantastic everyone was in ensuring our day went like clockwork.

A very special thank you goes to Ben the chef and his team who were brilliant in delivering the most amazing food for both our family dinner on the Thursday night and on our wedding day.

The serving staff were absolutely spot on.  Can you also pass on to that team (I am so sorry I cannot for the life of me remember his name having a senior moment) how very attentive they were in ensuring no one was left without food or drink

Your team that set up and made our reception and the gallery so special could you pass on a big thank you also too as their attention to detail was much appreciated.

And last and I think I should have said first you my darling Alicia are brilliant There are no words that do you justice I was so very blessed to have had you supporting me and making my wedding dream a reality !!! Thank you for everything.

Ed and I have been overwhelmed by the number of our guests who were introduced to the Gibraltar for the first time at our wedding and had such an incredible stay that I am pleased to tell you they will definitely be returning.

P.S. Between you and me..... the family have decided and I hear rumours have already starting gathering momentum that every year on our anniversary we are all coming back to the Gibraltar to celebrate a family dinner”

“Hi Alicia,

Leon and I just want to say a huge thank you for all your organisation, support and the extra effort you put in to make our day special. Everything went smoothly and exactly how we wanted.

We both couldn’t have pictured a better day or venue! Our guests commented on how well run and relaxed the day was, the quality of the food, and how pretty the venue was. 

Cannot thank you enough for our amazing day. We will be back for our anniversary for sure! 

Leon & Nadia”



“Dear Alicia, Ben & the Gibraltar team, 

Where do I start…A massive THANK YOU for making our wedding day so perfect.

From the moment we walked into Gibraltar we felt the love. I remember my mum and mother in law whispering in my ear “this is the one” after a day of looking at venues.

Once we booked the venue were concerned when there was a change in our Bridal Service Manager and I thought “oh no” but now I know it was for the best.

Alicia from the moment you took over you have done nothing but look after us. You were always so quick to reply giving us advise, recommendation and guidance when needed. You made sure we knew what needed to be done and what was happening next. You were happy to change things we wanted and accommodate to our every need.

From the day before the wedding when we arrived at Gibraltar you did everything you could to make our time memorable, you opened up the restaurant after being advised at the last minute we had 10 guests for lunch. You always checked in to make sure we were ok and kept us up to date with what was going on.

On the night of our wedding things didn’t change, you were there when needed and were happy to change things when the photographer wanted to steal us away for further photos before predicted rain. The food was amazing and served hot. I had many guests comment that it was the best food they have had at a wedding and were also full at the end of the night.

Thank you so much for all the work everyone did to make it the wedding we wanted.

Thank you so much for a wonderful day and we would be happy to recommend you to any family or friends.

Ashley and Emma”
