We were delighted to welcome Sarah for her surprise baby shower at Wynyard Hall. The special day was organised by her best friend Vickie to celebrate the upcoming birth of her baby boy. Vickie surprised her best friend with Afternoon Tea in the Londonderry Room and here’s what she thought about the day…
Please tell us a bit about your baby shower…
The Baby Shower was for Sarah Howarth, my best friend. She is due to have her baby in July, so I organised this surprise shower for her to celebrate her little boy who will be joining us very soon! There were 13 of us all together and I decorated the room with lovely decorations. Wynyard hall provided us with all the little extras we needed such as silk floral centrepieces, a cake knife and stands. We celebrated on a Sunday from 12-4pm. The room was set up beautifully when we arrived, we just added the finishing touches.
What was your favourite thing about the day?
The venue itself is outstanding! Very picturesque. The staff were so helpful and friendly and nothing was a problem for them.
We had the Londonderry room for our event and it was absolutely stunning.
Why did you choose Wynyard Hall for your baby shower?
I chose Wynyard hall for its elegance and because of recommendations from friends. Due to the nature of our event (baby shower) it was perfect for us!
What made you choose the Londonderry Room above our other function spaces?
Absolutely stunning and very spacious! Exactly what we needed.
How many guests did you have?
13 guests in total.
What colour scheme / decorations did you choose?
Blue for a little boy.
What did you have to eat and drink?
We had Afternoon Tea. Delicious!
Please tell us about anything that stood out – food, drink, service or team etc.
Everything stood out! I couldn’t just pick one thing. Staff were amazing, friendly and very helpful. The venue and room were sensational and the Customer Service was fab. From making pre-event arrangements with Katie, our dedicated Event Co-ordinator, to service from the front of house team on the day. I seriously couldn’t have asked for any better!
How helpful was your Event Coordinator?
She was amazing! Very helpful, informative and understanding. She sorted out everything I needed and made sure it was all in place to run smoothly. Thank you so much Katie!
How helpful were the staff on the day?
As I mentioned before I could not fault the team in the slightest. They were very helpful, friendly and were always available when we needed some drinks etc. They let us do our own thing but were there on hand whenever we needed them. Just perfect!
Would you recommend Wynyard Hall to family and friends?
I will 100% recommend Wynyard Hall to everyone, absolutely Fantastic! I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all of the staff. Thank you so much for having us and letting me hold Sarah’s baby shower in your beautiful Londonderry room.
