Beautiful wedding/reception venue - An Eventective User from Halifax, Nova Scotia

Marriann Creelman and her staff were fantastic. From early planning stages to wedding day, we enjoyed a very professional, experienced and knowledgeable team, Marriann, in particular, who guided a young bride and groom and made all the planning very effortless on our part. The venue was spotless, the floors freshly waxed and the staff were so accommodating. We were given carte blanche in terms of decoration, but the simple touches such as the baby grand piano make this such a classic setting. The water views, the lovely grounds and expert wait team just made for a wonderful experience. Our guests made comment on the beautiful surroundings and were very impressed with the meal, it was delivered quickly, was very well prepared and presented, the salads cold, the main course piping hot. As the parents of the bride and having attended many ceremonies over the years, I must commend the staff and encourage anyone looking for an intimate waterside wedding (we sat 105+-) to strongly consider the Saraquay House, youwill be delighted.
