Fairyhill 'saves the day'

Recently, we’ve been giving a whole new meaning to ‘saving the date’. A few weeks ago, we were saddened to hear that a few couples in the Swansea area had been left with their big day dreams dashed after the unforeseen closure of Gower Hotel. One couple in particular, Rachel and Jonathon, found out about the closure just nine weeks before their wedding was due to take place.

As a South Wales wedding venue that’s renowned for its magical touches, we were delighted to be able to act as the couple’s fairy godmother and swoop in to save the day - quite literally!

Getting hitched without a hitch

Not only was the day a special occasion for Jonathon and Rachel, but it was also particularly special for us as it’s the first wedding we’ve had at Fairyhill since we acquired the venue back in November. After the stress and heartache of almost losing their wedding day, we were able to step in and offer the couple the same date in a similar area so that it didn’t affect suppliers of cause major disruption for guests’ travel arrangements. Plus, we even threw in a £5,000 discount for good measure!

As we only took over the venue a few months ago, we were in a position to offer the couple the exact same day whilst utilising our wedding planning skills and expertise. Jonathon discussed the situation, with South Wales Evening Post commenting, "It was some mad twist of fate. We actually wanted to get married there in the first place, but it was a bit out of our price range. So to find ourselves in the position of getting married there after everything was amazing.”

Whilst changing everything over sounds like a nightmare, we’re used to planning entire weddings to tight deadlines due to our famous ‘Whirlwind Wedding’ package so we were able to turn a nightmare situation into a dream wedding for this couple. Whether you’ve had a last minute cancellation or simply don’t want to wait years to get married, our experienced team of wedding coordinators are always on hand to make the planning process as smooth as possible for couples. We live and breathe weddings so nothing fazes us! Plus, with our Whirlwind package, you get lots of added extras to make your day extra special.

Our Managing Director, Andrew, commented,"Fairyhill has long been regarded as a much-loved property in Swansea and being in a position to offer the venue to Rachel and Jonathan following their unexpected shock was a privilege.

"A wedding is one of the biggest purchases you will make in your life and therefore we cannot imagine how they felt when they heard their venue had fallen through. Instances like this make us realise how important it is to offer the client quality and financial reassurance."
