When your special day comes you can relax knowing that everything is in the hands of the Hart’s team and that we have the resources and experience to deliver the welcome, the food, the service and the Hart’s style that you and your guests have been looking forward to.

But don’t just take our word for it. Discover what our guests had to say about their special wedding day at Hart’s.

When we were first looking at wedding venues I wasn’t sure about a hotel wedding, but Sally led us out to the garden and I realised that I couldn’t get married anywhere else.

Ok, that’s the topline, now for the review;

Location: Harts is in central Nottingham, near the castle and the Park, it sits atop a small hill. The local area is very urban but you walk into Harts and you could be in the countryside, it’s so peaceful!

Decor: One thing you absolutely cannot fault Harts for is their decor; elegant, modern but classic. Matisse prints on the wall, the huge circle window in the bar, the effortless chic of the room decor. Fabulous.

The room: I stayed in a suite the night before and a garden room the night of the wedding.
The suite: was incredible! You walk into a living room area with views over nottingham, to your right there is a bathroom, to your left a seperate bedroom with another bathroom. I was worried initially about how we would fit myself and 6 bridesmaids plus hair and make up in the room but it was perfect!
The bed was comfy, the bathrooms clean and adequately stocked.
We set up the make up in the living room next to the huge window- great natural light! And we used the dressing table in the bedroom for hair.
Probably one of my favourite memories of the day was getting ready with my girls!
In terms of space and helpfulness- one of the maids ordered an ironing board to iron her dress and we still had plenty of room!

The garden room- I loved it. The bed was comfy. The room whilst smaller was ample, being able to walk into the garden felt like being on holiday!! The bathroom was modern with a good shower.
Side note: one of my friends, another guest, commented on how comfy the beds are! They are!

The bar / restaurant: I don’t know if this needs a seperate review but for now I will just say – incredible! We knew the food would be good at Harts having visited several times but this was amazing. Absolutely gorgeous, both in the food and the decor.

The staff: where do I start?
Abigayle: the hotel receptionist who kept me up to date on room bookings, she was incredibly helpful and professional.
The bar / waiting staff in the garden: one of my niggles about weddings is how long canapes take to come out, not so at Harts. The service was immaculate. Prompt, discreet, efficient. One of the managers, and I apologise that I forget his name, came over to check I was happy with everything- so kind.
The reception drinks were organised spotlessly and the garden was incredible! It could not have been more perfect!
Again I wish I could remember her name but the petite blonde lady that dressed our room for the wedding breakfast was possibly one of the kindest people I have ever met. She dressed the room perfectly! And when #shoegate17 happened she rang me to confirm they had found my shoes! The room looked perfect, we had a slightly unusual theme: pineapples, wonder woman tiaras and batman… but she handled it with care and respect. A million thank you’s!
All of the staff at Harts are incredibly professional, calm, courteous but not robots; they made us feel like rock stars – thank you!
And finally, Sally, I am a control freak so I felt pretty confident that I didn’t need a wedding planner. Oh Pip, you naive little bride; enter Sally. I cannot tell you how much Sally focused our attention, embraced our ideas and drove forward our vision. When we mentioned Jelly instead of cake – she found a supplier, when we revealed our table plans – she jumped on board, when I just needed to check in and confirm details – she was already 10 steps ahead of me. I think Sally made our wedding, I genuinely cannot thank her enough. If you have any doubts about getting married at Harts, then don’t, Sally will make your day perfect. She is such a pro- I only plan on getting married once so it was great to have someone that had done this many times before! Thank you Sally!

In conclusion, as a hotel it’s lovely, modern and convenient.
As a wedding venue, it was divine!

Well done Harts, we will see you again soon.

Best regards,

Pip Gledhill

We just wanted to say a huge (if a little belated!) thank you for taking care of our wedding.

Every part of the planning with you was effortless and we felt completely supported in choosing exactly how we wanted our day to be.

The day itself was wonderful – perfect to the last detail, and our only regret is that we cant do it all again sometime soon!

Harts is superb.  The hotel is lovely and the garden setting for the reception drinks was glorious – even the weather held out for us!  The food was, as always, exceptional and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed their meal (and copious drinks!)

Your approach was perfect – you appeared very laid back but we could see you had your eye on everything.  You were brilliant!  So again – Thank you so much for our perfect day.

All the best

Marie and Mark Barlow

We had the perfect wedding at Harts.

From getting ready in the bridal suite with my bridesmaids, the ceremony, Prosecco on the lawn, the wedding breakfast to dancing the night away at our reception (with bacon butties for supper!), every moment ran like clockwork.

Our wedding co-ordinator Kirsty was so lovely and supportive; a real pleasure to plan our wedding with and to have with us on the day.
The food was amazing! Lots of options and very tasty.

We used Spotify playlists through the sound system for our music which worked perfectly.
I would definitely recommend Harts as a wedding venue to any prospective bride and groom.

I have always wanted to get married at St Barnabas Cathedral in Nottingham, a church which holds a special connection with my family. We wanted a relaxed venue close to the church which ideally meant we would need a city centre location. We looked at various venues in Nottingham, nothing came close to Harts. Even better that my husband proposed to me there. We arranged a meeting with the wedding coordinator who was fantastic. She really knew her stuff and gave us plenty of ideas of what we could do on the day. It was an easy decision to make to book Harts.

After the church ceremony our 100 guests made the 5 minute walk to Harts lead by a piper, to this day a highlight of the day. We were greeted with a drinks reception and made our way into the beautiful, secluded garden which overlooked the city of Nottingham. We were lucky enough to have a glorious sunny day. Canapes were served whilst people chatted and enjoyed the view.

The piper continued to play in the background and we invited David Fox to perform some magic and keep our guests entertained. The drinks reception was followed by the Wedding Breakfast. The food was fantastic and of a very high standard which many guests commented on. The day was finished off on a high with Richie Muir providing the evening entertainment which went down a storm.

Sally Martin our wedding co-ordinator deserves a special mention, nothing was too much trouble despite our many questions and emails before the event and looking after us and our guests on the day itself. She ensured everything went according to plan and made sure the reception room looked absolutely stunning. This was really important to me. Due to timings I was unable to help with setting up the room myself so I had to put my trust in Sally that everything was just how I wanted it. I had nothing to worry about.

All of the staff did such an amazing job on the day, it was nothing but seamless from start to finish. I would highly recommend Harts as a venue

I am sorry it has taken so long to contact you but I am writing to thank you and your staff for making Nicola and Jamie’s wedding such a perfect day.
From all the initial planning meetings with Sally, to our breakfast outside the following morning, without exception we have found the staff professional, courteous and helpful.

Sally listened to Nicola’s plans and dreams from the beginning and helped make those plans and dreams a reality. She was always calm and understanding and we were pleased she was around on the day as she willing tried to pre-empt issues and take worries from my shoulders. The staff she handed over to in the evening are also to be praised, as were the two members of staff who helped us set up the room the evening before. They had obviously been briefed well on our needs and were eager to offer help whenever it was needed. I am sorry I don’t know their individual names but I am sure they went over and above the call of duty.

Please pass on our sincere thanks and gratitude to your staff who certainly helped to make our day so special.

Just wanted to drop you a little line to say thank you so much for absolutely everything on Saturday. The day was perfect – you and your team were amazing and I couldn’t have wished for a better day. The food, the dining room – everything was fantastic.You made us both feel so relaxed and thank you for showing us the lamp post spot! We have seen a preview of the photos and it looks great. We can’t wait to arrange our next visit to Hart’s. Thanks again, for everything!

My husband, Stewart and I were married at Harts on 2nd December. We are now writing to say that the arrangements for our wedding were absolutely perfect. Everything, from the service to the wedding breakfast to the evening’s entertainment, went seamlessly. Staff were courteous and efficient, but we should wish particularly to mention Kelly. From our first meeting with her through to the end of the wedding day she was fantastic: friendly, understanding and unfailingly reliable. We had complete confidence in her. She is a star! We should also like to mention Kelly’s mother, Maggie. She too was excellent as always and all our guests commented on the exceptional service they received, indeed a number of them said it was the best wedding they had attended.

Having arranged functions at Hart’s for my company I knew what to expect of your staff. They certainly lived up to their reputation and helped to make a happy day a glorious occasion for us.

A huge ‘Thank you’ to you and your team for making our wedding celebration so special and memorable.
The evening exceeded our expectations and everyone who attended had a wonderful time and commented on the food quality.
Please pass on our thanks to all the team.

Alistair and Jane
