Weddings testimonials

A very special occasion celebrated in style

I would like to take the opportunity to thank the staff at Monaco Resort for helping us celebrate the marriage of our daughter Alexandra to Zeyin Li. The occasion went exactly as planned, the venue superb, the gardens beautiful, the marquee set up and wait staff professional, the food fantastic. We all had a wonderful evening, a very special occasion celebrated in style. Many of our guests stayed on site and were very impressed with the accommodation, household staff to be complimented. Our special thanks to Danielle whose organisational skills and enthusiasm was impressive. On behalf of Alexandra, Zeyin and their families - many thanks!

Claire Grant

Exceeded our expectations

"We recently organised a wedding on behalf of our London-based son and daughter-in-law. The day exceeded our expectations in every respect. Careful and thoughtful planning by Event Coordinator, Danielle, ensured the day flowed smoothly. The buffet menu provided lots of choices and many guests commented on its high standard. Our friends staying at the resort were very happy with their accommodation and the service they received. All this contributed to a wonderful and memorable day. Thanks to the team at Monaco for a job well done!"
