"Well where do we start! Planning a wedding people say it is stressful and difficult, 2 words that even when based in Manchester
                never crossed our minds when planning ours at the most amazing venue of the Tunnels Beaches.

                We fell in love with the Tunnels Beaches 2 years ago since then the planning process was seamless. All the staff are so welcoming
                and accommodating that you feel like it’s home away from home.

                We had both sets of accommodation The Bath House and The Courtyard. From arriving on the Tuesday, our Wedding day on the
                Wednesday and our garden party on Thursday. Were the most special days of our lives. To be surrounded by close family and friends
                was topped by the most stunning venue.

                Our wedding day was more than perfect to us. With a rain cloud looming staff were calm and positive and never faltered that
                we would be able to proceed with the ceremony outside. Within 10 minutes the rain cloud passed and the sun shone brightly all
                afternoon, a relaxed ceremony full of love and laughter, the tastiest gourmet BBQ we have ever had, and we all watched a sunset
                that you will not forget easily.

                Nothing more than perfection."

"Booking Tunnels Beaches for our wedding day was a no brainer. It was the first and last venue we looked at.

                It truly is a breathtaking setting for a wedding and our guests haven’t stopped talking about it. The food was excellent – lots of
                choices and all delicious. All the staff provided great service both in the run up to the wedding and on the day. Everything went
                very smoothly.

                Our family stayed in The Courtyard which is fantastic accommodation, and it’s great to stay at the venue.

                We can’t thank everyone at the Tunnels enough for everything they did to make our wedding day the best day of our lives!"

"An exceptional day in an outstanding location! Our wedding at Tunnels Beaches was all we could have asked for and more.

                From start to finish the team were extremely responsive to all of our requests. We were impressed by how they accommodated
                the extensive list of dietary requirements of the wedding party to produce the most delicious buffet suitable for all guests. It’s
                not surprising Tunnels Beaches has been recognised for the superb quality of its food and provision - the food was a talking
                point all evening!

                The friendliness and attentiveness of all staff before, during and after our wedding made what could have been a hectic day
                seamless, from quickly answering our many emails, dealing with spilt juice on a flower girl dress, to managing our ceremony
                music without a glitch. We can’t speak more highly of them.

                Our day was absolutely perfect. Most guests had not visited Tunnels Beaches before and commented on how extraordinary the
                venue is. Some guests even commented how they were glad their wedding day didn’t have the follow ours!

                Thank you to everyone at Tunnels Beaches for your hard work and for the opportunity to be married at your beautiful wedding
                venue. We feel incredibly lucky and would recommend anyone considering Tunnels Beaches to visit... our search stopped here!"

"Well, what can we say... Our wedding on 01.08.18 could not have been more perfect. It exceeded our expectations in so many
                ways. The staff in particular were all exceptional - so kind and attentive but also very relaxed and positive. We had many people
                comment on how great they all were. You all made Mark and I feel very relaxed and comfortable - it’s really appreciated. Before
                we could think of things that needed to be done, they were already done for us by you guys!

                The venue looked better then we could have imagined on the day and it all flowed so smoothly. Everything we asked for was done
                without hesitation. The food in particular had SO many positive comments from our guests, including ‘the best food we’ve ever
                had at a wedding’ and there was a lot too which was great! I could eat that every day.

                The accommodation too was perfect - again our guests were amazed by it. We all felt like we were tucked away in our own little
                paradise. Having three days with our closest friends and family, in such a cool place, was irreplaceable.

                All in all, amazing. We had the best 3 days of our lives and really want to thank you all for the part you played in that. We didn’t
                want to leave!"
                All the best, Genna & Mark xx

"We instantly fell in love with Tunnels Beaches on a rainy April afternoon in 2017 and couldn't wait to book it for our wedding
                in July 2018. From the beginning the team were exceptionally helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Our guests were
                completely blown away by everything and lots of people have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

                The venue is so unique and special. Even though everything is run so seamlessly it still has an amazing laid back feel which is
                exactly how we wanted our wedding day to be. Being massive foodies we spent a while deciding on the BBQ menu and were
                completely blown away by all the food on the day - it was awesome! The staff during the day were so helpful and laid back that
                everything just worked like magic.

                Big thank you to The Wedding Spinner Paul Barrington who we had DJ all day and he really got the vibe of day and the dance
                floor full in the evening. Matt Fryer was an amazing photographer and captured the day perfectly for us. Our amazing flowers
                by Kelly from Offshore Blooms were just what I wanted and better than I expected. Also Rachel from Isabelle Grace Make Up
                and Liv from Salt Hairdressers made us look our best. Everyone was from the recommended list that Tunnels provide which
                made it really easy for us.

                We really cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so wonderful."

"We were dead set on getting married abroad. We wanted to get married by the sea and didn't even consider the UK an option
                because when do we ever get nice weather in the UK hey? After visiting various places in Italy we came to see Tunnels Beaches
                just for some perspective and absolutely loved it. Part of the reason we wanted to go abroad was to create a weekend with our
                loved ones and not just a day. By booking The Bath House and The Courtyard next door we were totally able to do this and the
                fact our beloved dog could walk down the aisle with us sealed the deal.

                The venue is stunning and because they just do weddings - they know exactly what they're doing. Every email answered
                immediately, no problem to ask lots of questions, do things differently or change plans.

                The food was out of this world, the view is not just stunning but uninterrupted. We didn't appreciate until the day itself the fact
                that no one can see in. You have your own venue, your own beach and the most amazing view. The staff were so helpful and
                friendly. We had THE best day. Thank you to all the team at Tunnels Beaches."

"To everyone in the Tunnels Beaches team… you were amazing! Thank you!

                We first saw Tunnels Beaches on a rainy day while it was undergoing renovations in January 2017 and thought it was beautiful
                so when we came back and saw the finished building we were completely blown away! The scenery is magical (so many of our
                guests commented that it was like the set from the Mama Mia Movie) and the building itself is decorated so beautifully that
                you don’t need to do anything yourself if you don’t want to.

                From when Jamie first showed us around the venue, to the visits and speedy replies to our questions in the lead up to the
                wedding nothing was too much trouble for you all. We really appreciated your list of recommended suppliers. We booked
                Roger Styles as our musician for the whole day - who was fantastic! Amy Elizabeth did my beautiful make-up. Brigitte Fisher
                did my hair which I absolutely loved and Oli (McGivern Photography) and James (Motion Farm Wedding Films) were a joy to
                have around and have captured the day via photos and video perfectly!

                All the staff guided us through the day itself seamlessly; everything just seemed to happen without us even having to think
                about it. The staff are like ninjas; chairs were put out and removed with the blink of an eye and they appear just as you might
                need something. A huge thank you to the Chef. The food was to die for! We managed to try a bit of everything we had ordered
                and it all was fantastic.

                We are so grateful to you all for giving us the most incredible day. We can’t wait to return for picnics and champagne on the
                beach for our anniversaries!"

"Tunnels Beaches is a completely magical venue. The views and beaches are incredible and the venue itself is spacious and works
                perfectly for the flow of the day. Leading up to the wedding, staff were always happy to help, they let us look round after we had
                booked and were very quick to respond to any queries which put my mind at rest.

                On the day, staff were attentive but discreet so we really felt like it was our venue for the day. The food was sensational - all
                our guests commented on it - drinks were fab and general service was brilliant. We particularly appreciated the subtle help at
                the beginning of the ceremony where the staff told bridesmaids when to walk down the aisle as that was something we didn’t
                have the headspace for at the time.

                Thank you for making our day better than we could’ve imagined, we will be recommending Tunnels Beaches to friends and family
                and look forward to returning for our anniversary in the future..."

"The best venue with the best food and phenomenal service and this is just how the guests described Tunnels Beaches!

                Seriously, the most amazing day of our lives, we cannot thank the Tunnels team enough and just wish we could do it all again
                and would recommend this venue to anyone.

                We fell in love with the Tunnels Beaches venue from the minute we saw it on a drizzly March afternoon in 2017 and were super
                lucky to get a Saturday in 2018 and what a perfect day it was. From our first visit Jamie and his team have been fantastic, from
                the speedy email responses, to our visits beforehand and our special day the service has been incredible and was absolutely
                seamless throughout the day.

                With such extensive food choices and help from the team it was easy to feed our guests with various food allergies. It was the
                most sensational BBQ. We had vegans who became meat eaters for the day and second helpings galore all because the food was
                so amazing!

                We booked the Courtyard after only seeing the plans and were totally blown away when we arrived; just stunning accommodation
                with fantastic modern and spacious living areas and rooms with beautiful décor. Perfect for spending time with family and friends
                and getting ready on our wedding day.

                A day the Keith and I, and our guests will never forget. We can’t wait to come back for our anniversaries..."

"'Flawless!' That is the only word we would use to describe the service we received upon initial contact, straight through to our
                wedding day with the team at Tunnels Beaches! They really have things perfected down to a T, to allow any couple to have a truly
                unique day. Even though they do hundreds of weddings a year, you really didn't feel like you were another wedding on a conveyer
                belt, they really do make you feel special.

                Myself and my new husband along with our family and friends all thought the food was outstanding, with most guests saying it was
                the best food that they had ever had at a wedding. Topped off with the beautiful location and venue itself, it's really not hard to
                fall in love with Tunnels Beaches. The staff were attentive when needed, but most of the time we felt like we had the whole venue
                to ourselves as they were all so discreet in the background working their magic.

                Many thanks again for making our day so flawless and one that not only Gaz and I will remember, but all our family and friends
                will remember too.

                To all the team at Tunnels Beaches, you have created a truly unique venue that will be very special to us for years to come."

"Jamie, thank you so much. You and your team have been amazing. From the first visit Catherine was fantastic and made us feel
                so welcome and relaxed. In the build up to the day both Tanya and Catherine were so accommodating (even of the copious amounts
                of glitter...) And on the day, Jacs handled everything expertly. She was so relaxed and guided us through the timings, nothing was
                too much trouble... even sifting through the bin to find the Grooms speech...(oops).

                All the guests loved the wedding and I can't kid myself to think it was just about the ceremony! The venue is beautiful and is the
                perfect setting for a truly magical wedding.

                Staying at the Courtyard made the wedding even more special. We invited the whole wedding back for a late morning brunch
                the following day. It was perfect as the actual wedding is such a whirlwind of a day so having such a beautiful and relaxed space
                to host in was ideal. About 40 people came and enjoyed some simple food and the space to sit in the sun. It was also such a
                beautifully decorated house that made each moment of the wedding feel extra special.

                We honestly had the most amazing day ever and would whole heartily recommend Tunnels Beaches for the perfect wedding venue!!"

                All our guests commented that it was one of the best wedding venues they have ever been to. Everyone was raving about the food.
                The Tuna Steaks and Monkfish and Prawn Skewers were so yummy.

                Thank you to all involved in the run up and on the day. You made it really easy to arrange the big day. The website with all the
                suppliers on is really useful especially when we don't live in the area. The details for the babysitter and dog sitter came in really

"We viewed Tunnels Beaches on a rainy day in January in 2016, we had been engaged a few months but were struggling to find
                a laid back, beach type of venue that fit all of our criteria. We found Tunnels Beaches online and were quite sure we were going
                to book when we saw the pictures, but we just wanted to make sure it was as beautiful as it looked online. Travelling down from
                Manchester, over 5 and a half hours we were absolutely not disappointed! Tunnels Beaches was even more beautiful than we could
                have ever imagined. The thought of our guests coming down the tunnel itself and saying our "I do's" under the gazebo, with a BBQ
                wedding breakfast was the dream and we booked instantly.

                We had a bit of a wait from then, as most weekend dates were booked for the following couple of years. We were finally wed in
                June 2018, we had beautiful weather amazing scenery and our nearest and dearest surrounding us. The sunset over the sea and
                rugged cliffs was incredible and had everybody in awe after what was simply the most perfect day.

                The team at Tunnels Beaches are amazing and on hand with questions over email, I also set up a call with Jacs too before our day
                just to settle my own nerves more than anything. I needn't have worried as the staff's smiling faces greeted us as we arrived and
                nothing was too much trouble for the rest of the day. Ben, in the evening was also amazing, everything ran like clockwork and it
                simply was magical. Thank you so much for all of your support throughout the whole thing!"

"Thank you so much for making our wedding day incredible!

                We were so lucky with the sun, and lucky to have an awesome team like you guys running the show! You answered all our finickity
                little questions that came to you in a constant email stream from a confused bride and stressed out Maid of Honour/Wedding Planner!!
               
                Nothing was too much trouble, you were so accommodating to our every need and everyone remained immensely professional
                throughout the whole experience, especially on the day!

                Craig - the food was to die for!! I sampled everything I could and it was all put together with so much attention to detail and
                presented beautifully. You informed us about the foods we could and couldn't have with the dietary requirements so efficiently.
                We had such lovely comments from our guests about the food.

                People were so taken with the venue that most of the photos the guests have taken are of the view and not us! It really is an amazing
                little gem and I'm so glad Rhys found it, I think it was the best beach venue we could ask for, Jamie and the team should be very
                proud of what they've created there.

                We had a spectacular day, it all ran seamlessly and we can't thank you enough!"

"We held our wedding at Tunnels Beaches on 07/05/18 and it was the most perfect day.

                The location/facilities on offer will always draw people to having their wedding at Tunnels Beaches but from the very moment
                we met Jamie and his staff back in June 2017 they did everything to make sure our wedding was perfect and for that we are
                truly grateful.

                We stayed in the newly refurbished "The Courtyard" which is even better than the photos make it look. It is a great communal
                space and having all the bridal party together in such an awesome space for a couple of days beforehand set a great tone for
                the weekend.

                The wedding day itself was seamless which is largely due to the professional nature of Jacs and her team. Nothing is too much
                trouble and nothing is left to chance. The food was absolutely lovely and drew compliments from all who ate it. Our pianist
                and
band were able to set up and run to time and people drunk and danced all night. There was certainly a few sore heads the
                next day.

                Thanks to Jamie, Catherine, Tanya, Jacs and all the team behind the scenes, we had the day of our dreams and one which we
                will remember forever. I only wish we could do it all again. If you do hold your wedding at Tunnels Beaches, and I recommend you
                absolutely do, remember to take it all in..."

"How do we try and put how great our wedding was into words... We honestly didn’t think it would ever be as perfect as it actually
                was - so our advice is to just book Tunnels Beaches so you can truly understand!

                We first went to view Tunnels Beaches on the worst possible day - It was freezing cold, torrential rain and blowing a gail, but once
                we stood upstairs looking out at the view, dripping wet and a little miserable, our mood changed and we knew this was the perfect
                wedding venue!

                On the day itself we had the total opposite weather - in fact it was the hottest May Day bank holiday weekend on record. The day
                would have been fantastic either way, but the weather really did make it the best day ever.

                From initial contact the Tunnels team were just fantastic, usually answering my emails within minutes, which is great when you
                are mid-panic that you have forgotten something. At every step we were made to feel like we were the only wedding that they
                were hosting, which is no mean feat when they have weddings almost everyday. On the day itself, as a bride you really are
                leaving everything in their capable hands, and at no point did I feel stressed or worried, they have a knack of asking you
                questions/informing you of things without you even noticing. The whole day was relaxed, fun and seamless.

                The food was incredible, I cannot thank Craig enough for what he did, as a Bride with a gluten intolerance, the one thing I didn't
                want on my wedding day was to worry about what I could or couldn’t eat, but I also didn’t want the guests to suffer. Craig ensured
                we had an entire gluten free menu which was absolutely delicious. My only regret on our wedding day was not going to get any
                of the paella (due to having too much fun on the dance floor) - I know some guests had more than 4 portions, it was THAT good!

                A massive shout out to our photographers Dan and Stu (D&A Photography) who gave us the most amazing shots, Natasha (Pumpkin
                & Pye) for our beautiful flowers, Connie (Iconic Hair and Makeup) for making me feel absolutely amazing! Michael G Moore
                (The Piano Man) who played from the ceremony to late evening (although everyone wanted him to stay all night - and he would
                have done), and finally Sebastian (Offbeat Entertainment) who had a hard act to follow, but so many guest have said it was the
                best playlist they have heard at a wedding and he kept the dance floor full until the early hours! The tunnels team ensured that
                they all worked seamlessly together!

                Our favourite part of the day was after our first dance all our guests joined us on the terrace, as the sun started to set dancing
                to The Piano Man, all having the best time, with huge smiles on their faces and dancing together.

                All of our guests are still talking about our Wedding a month and a half later - with all of them saying it was the best wedding
                they have ever been too.

                It truly was the best day of our lives and we wish we could do it all over again! We really cannot thank you enough!"

"Friday 4th May 2018 at Tunnels Beaches was everything we dreamt of, and more!!

                With being further away, we tried to get as much organised as possible to make it easy for the staff to know how we’d like our
                day to be. But I didn’t need to worry, they were fantastic! From booking the venue, to the day itself, Jamie, Tanya and Catherine
                made everything so easy. All were quick with answers and so accommodating when we needed help with ideas!

                Our day ran so smoothly from beginning to end thanks to Jacs and we couldn’t have asked for more. It’s always been a dream
                of mine (the bride) to get married close to the beach and Tunnels Beaches was perfect! Our friends and family said how amazing
                the venue and scenery was, along with the food! Just incredible! We wish we could do it all over again and won’t ever be able
                to express how grateful we are for all Tunnels Beaches did for us. A day that will be with us forever."

"We really wanted a wedding by the sea; being based in rural Gloucestershire we didn’t think this would be possible! We took
                a punt and travelled to see Tunnels Beaches... nothing prepared us for this breath-taking venue! We pretty much knew then
                and there that this was the place...

                Living nearly 3 hours away, we thought it would be difficult for planning, but the Tunnels team were fantastic. They quickly
                reassured us and answered any questions we had, no matter how trivial it seemed. On the day the team were so professional;
                there were no worries from us about timings, it all just simply happened.

                The Bath House was perfect. It made our whole wedding trip much easier being only metres away from the venue - especially
                with four young nieces and nephews in tow, who were taken to go rock pooling on the Ladies Beach whilst wedding prep. in
                the morning was in full swing!

                The food was INCREDIBLE. Not having done a tasting beforehand felt like a bit of a gamble, but we needn’t have worried.
                The food was the best we’ve ever had at a wedding, and lots of our guests said the same... delicious.

                So many venues stop the music at midnight, but we were able to dance until 2am at Tunnels, which was a winner!

                We can’t thank the whole Tunnels team enough for everything. Literally the best day of our lives!"

"I grew up in North Devon so when we got engaged I knew exactly where I wanted to get married and Tunnels Beaches did not
                disappoint. From the moment we stepped through the tunnel we knew it was the venue for us and did not look back. It has such
                a relaxed feel, which is exactly what we wanted.

                Jamie and the staff were fantastic from start to finish, making sure the day was perfect for us and answering any questions at
                any time of the day.

                The day was perfect and we were lucky enough to have the sun shining all day. Our guests were wowed at the venue and the views
                and loved spending time down on the beach.

                The food was incredible, our guests were raving about the BBQ, ice-cream and pasties and we have had lots of comments about
                it being the best wedding food they have ever had.

                We had both the Bath House and The Courtyard which was perfect for our family and friends and meant we could celebrate for
                the whole weekend.

                We would also like to thank The Wedding Spinner (DJ) for keeping the dance floor packed the entire night. Another massive
                thank you to Luna (photographers) who captured the day so perfectly.

                We really cannot thank everyone enough, we had the most perfect day and have been told my many of our guests it was the best
                wedding they have ever been to."

"I have been struggling to find the words to describe Tunnels Beaches and our wedding, and have been putting off writing
                this as it sort of feels like closure! It all feels like a dream and I am absolutely gutted it is all over. From the moment I found
                Tunnels Beaches after searching online through hundreds of venues I knew it was special. When you walk through the tunnels
                to the venue you will understand. It just takes your breath away and transports you to another place.

                Jamie met us on a grey, rainy day and our eyes still lit up at the beauty of Tunnels Beaches. The views are spectacular,
                the venue incredible and the attention to detail in Tunnels Beaches, The Bath House and The Courtyard accommodation
                are fantastic. We knew we wanted it immediately.

                In the build up to the day Jamie and the team were tremendously helpful and accommodating, from the food choices to the
                table decorations. It felt like someone was holding our hands throughout.

                We booked The Bath House and The Courtyard for 3 nights over the wedding weekend and it was the best experience.
                The accommodation was fantastic. We had paella on the first night arranged by Tunnels Beaches and it was absolutely superb.
                It was meant to be for 60 guests but almost everyone had seconds.

                On the morning of our wedding it was drizzling and I spoke with Jacs and the team as I was desperate to have the ceremony
                outside. They were brilliant and got the white umbrellas and blankets ready. I got my wish to have it outside despite the rain
                and the sun came out in the end.

                The canapés, ice cream tricycle and food were delicious. Every dish we picked was perfect. Everyone said it was the best
                wedding food they had tasted and we strongly agree. Although whoever gave my daughter a chocolate ice cream from the
                tricycle before the photos were taken is in trouble!!

                All of the staff were friendly and so helpful throughout the day, they were attentive and always checking we were ok. Nothing
                was too big an ask for them.

                We are eternally grateful for Tunnels Beaches’ recommendations of Matt Fryer (photographer), The Wedding Spinner (DJ),
                Roger Styles (vocalist/guitarist), Sweet Williams Flowers, Changing Faces (hair & make up) & Sarah Nardoni (babysitter).

                Tunnels, we cannot thank you enough for everything. I am getting teary writing this as it was the best thing we have ever done;
                not just the wedding but finding a place as special as Tunnels Beaches."

"Amazing venue for the wedding of our dreams!

....... . ... We fell in love with Tunnels as soon as we saw it, and booked it there and then. The beach and sea views are absolutely stunning
....... . ... and it is all tucked away between the cliffs, it is the perfect backdrop. It was such a relaxed vibe and exactly want we wanted for
....... . ... our wedding.

....... . ... The staff were amazing from the initial planning to the day, answering questions and just being there whenever you needed
....... . ... something, they really went the extra mile to help make it special. They were really friendly and expert and that helped with
....... . ... any nerves! The food was amazing and we received so many comments on how great it was.

....... . ... We had the best day, and to sum up our wedding photographer “if Carlsberg did wedding venues” then Tunnels Beaches would
....... . ... be the winner hands down. Thank you for everything, Tunnels Beaches will always hold a special place in our hearts.

....... . ... Thanks again, it really was an awesome day!"

"Tunnels Beaches was the first wedding location we visited and the last. We knew we wanted our special day to be here.
....... . ... We wanted to get married on a beach and have a beautiful backdrop while we made our vows. Tunnels had the most beautiful
....... . ... and most breathtaking views. The beach has beautiful grey sands which makes it so unique. The location is so enclosed and
....... . ... protected that it makes your day private for you and your guests.

....... . ... The staff were wonderful. They looked after you through the day and night and kept you on schedule. The food was one of the
....... . ... best parts!.. You ate until you were stuffed and they had beautiful local produce. There is also so much choice so everyone,
....... . ... no matter what could have a big plate full of food.

....... . ... We cannot recommend Tunnels Beaches enough. Our day was so magical and so beautiful and we can’t wait to come back
....... . ... and visit again on our anniversary."

....... . ... The indoor ceremony space is absolutely beautiful with incredible views of the sea, so to anybody concerned about not being able
....... . ... to get married outdoors if the weather is bad then we would definitely tell you not to worry – it was still perfect. The views of the
....... . ... storm and the crashing sea just made it even more atmospheric and special.

....... . ... The food was utterly amazing. We had a difficult time deciding what to choose for the BBQ buffet as everything sounded delicious.
....... . ... Large numbers of our guests have commented that it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. Thank you to the Chef and
....... . ... kitchen staff!

....... . ... We stayed in the Bath House for the weekend and it made everything extremely easy and relaxed.

....... . ... All the staff at Tunnels were an absolute delight, and were extremely helpful from the moment we arrived that morning. The day
....... . ... ran really smoothly, and we both felt as if we were being gently carried along in the event we’d planned, without having to worry
....... . ... about any of the detail on the day itself.

....... . ... Huge thanks to the Chefs. The food was awesome and all the guests commented that it was the best wedding food they'd ever tried.
....... . ... I'm trying to convince some of my unmarried friends to get married at Tunnels as I was too over excited at the time to try any
....... . ... canapés and they looked amazing!!! My Dad said they were so good and he ate so many that he struggled to eat his BBQ food. Our
....... . ... vegan photographer who goes to loads of weddings said that it was the best vegan meal she has had at a wedding and my aunty who
....... . ... had the nut allergy loved the fact that you brought her special canapés and food that she was confident she could eat.

....... . ... "We are Londoners, however didn't want a traditional London wedding. From the moment we saw Tunnels Beaches back in
....... . ... April 2016, we immediately booked it and didn't even look at any other venues.

....... . ... Planning our wedding from London was no issue as Catherine, Tanya, Jacs and Chef Craig, were always at hand to help. The website
....... . ... is extremely useful to help plan the event and prompt you to consider all situations.

....... . ... We rented The Bath House accommodation and it was a great base - it really added to our overall experience. Beautifully furnished,
....... . ... modern residence with all the mod cons.

....... . ... So, onto our special day... We had our friends and family moaning & groaning about the travel and distance to get to Devon, but
....... . ... when they arrived and saw the stunning scenery - it literally was a 'mic drop' moment! We were lucky enough for a dry (but windy!)
....... . ... day and had our ceremony outdoors. We loved the relaxed feel and our day was truly memorable!

....... . ... Catherine and the Tunnels team accommodated all of our quirky requests, including tweaking the gorgeous Gourmet BBQ to suit
....... . ... our Caribbean palette! Big shout out to Chef Craig and the fantastic jerk chicken!

....... . ... Our guests have been raving how superb the event was with comments such as:
....... . ... 'No lie - hands down, best wedding ever!'
....... . ... 'I feel sorry for anyone getting married after your event - no one can top that'
....... . ... 'EPIC!'
....... . ... 'How on earth did you find such a beautiful venue?'
....... . ... 'Food was out of this World - shoosh don't tell, but we went back for seconds & thirds!'

....... . ... Nothing was too much trouble for Catherine and the gang to make our event tailored to suit our needs and they were extremely
....... . ... easy to communicate and work with. The distance was no problem as they were always at the end of the phone and replied
....... . ... promptly to emails.

....... . ... I don't think Tunnels have had such a mad event and our 'entourage' included our choirmaster - big up to Jules Addison, who
....... . ... conducted our guests to sing our special tunes. The grooms sister is an Opera singer and performed whilst we signed the register
....... . ... (Sarah-Jane Lewis was awesome!) Oliver Pool filmed our Marryoke - check him out too! AMAZING - can't wait to see our finished
....... . ... video. Tanya was our grime violinist - a special surprise from my husband - uber talented and our guests were delighted to be
....... . ... entertained by such a unique artist! DJ Paul (The Wedding Spinner), recommended by the Tunnels crew, truly made our After Party
....... . ... memorable - playing tune after tune after tune. All wrapped up by Andy Wardle photographing and Steve Dibben on filming duty.
....... . ... These guys were highly professional and captured the spirit of our day.

....... . ... As you can see, we can't stop raving about Tunnels - the venue and the team made our wedding so special, we can't thank them
....... . ... enough! Can't wait to go back for our anniversary."

....... . ... "It would be really hard to not have an amazing wedding at Tunnels Beaches. Like so many other people, as soon as we saw it,
....... . ... we knew it was where we wanted to get married - even though it was torrential rain when we looked round! Even in bad weather,
....... . ... it looked so dramatic with stunning views, but we were blessed when the sun came out for us on the day. It really is a location
....... . ... that wowed our family and friends and made it different to any other weddings we've been to. So much so, that when Tom's sister
....... . ... got engaged shortly after our wedding, they're thinking of looking abroad to match the setting and weather that they enjoyed so
....... . ... much at our wedding! Needless to say, it makes for some cracking photos and I'll never forget watching my friends on the beach
....... . ... in their flipflops, throwing frisbees.

....... . ... The staff at the Tunnels are all incredibly professional and they definitely play a huge part in making the day work so well, so
....... . ... a big thank you to Tanya and the team. They were just always there in the background, making everything happen seamlessly
....... . ... and it was so nice that I didn't need to get involved in the running of the day. They just have this remarkable way of making
....... . ... you feel like you're the only ones who get married there, which I know is not the case at all wedding venues. We were so
....... . ... impressed with prompt email responses by the team throughout our time planning the wedding, as we're not local to Devon.

....... . ... The food was great and was loved by meat eaters, veggies and vegans alike, which is no mean feat for almost 120 people.
....... . ... We followed up with dessert and the ice cream tricycle, which went down well with guests. As well as marshmallows over the
....... . ... firepit and sparklers in the evening. We sourced a lot of our suppliers - Pumpkin and Pye (florist), Matt Fryer (photographer),
....... . ... Nibble & Scoff (cakes), Changing Faces (hair and make up) and Roly's Fudge (favours) via the website FAQ's, all of whom I'd
....... . ... highly recommend to others. Jules at Hey Jules for local, personalised gifts, jewellery and my hair piece was also great.

....... . ... If you get the opportunity to stay in Bath House, I'd encourage you to do it as it just made it a whole weekend of memories.
....... . ... We stayed there with our close family and it's such a stunning house... everyone having tea and cake at end of the wedding day
....... . ... and eating together the day after re-living all the different parts of the day, are also memories we wont forget.

....... . ... So yes, just the best venue and really our happiest day ever."

....... . ... "We wanted to write to say thanks so much for making our day 22-08-17 PERFECT and one we will never forget!

....... . ... All our friends had warned us how stressful planning a wedding was. When we came down for the relaunch party in March we said
....... . ... to our photographer Matt Fryer that we were waiting for the stress to kick in - we were so surprised at how chilled we were. Matt
....... . ... said "the people who warned you how stressful it was have never planned a wedding at Tunnels Beaches - they take care of
....... . ... everything for you." How true this turned out to be! From the countless questions from our guests to all the little touches on the
....... . ... day. It would be so easy for a venue as spectacular as Tunnels Beaches to rely on the scenery to bring in trade, but this is SO not
....... . ... the case here.

....... . ... The food was amazing and kept coming! All of our guests commented as such. The staff were so friendly and helpful with anything
....... . ... that was asked of them. Brought us canapés when we asked for 10 minutes alone just so we didn't miss out, didn't panic when the
....... . ... bride was running slightly behind schedule, and packed everything up for us after the day including half the groom's clothes which
....... . ... he managed to leave at the venue! We only wish we could do it all over again!"

....... . ... Your team on the day ran everything like clockwork. For me, an over worrier and perfectionist, I didn't have to think or worry
....... . ... about anything!!

....... . ... On arrival our guests very quickly understood why we'd hauled them all 4hrs down the road. As we did, they've also fallen for
....... . ... Tunnels. Nearly 6 months on and they are still ranting about it! The stunning views, the AMAZING food, and top service.

....... . ... Our first dance on the terrace has even been featured on a couple of wedding blogs now. Is so nice to see parts of our day

....... . ... "We always wanted to get married outdoors by the sea, at a unique venue and were so excited when we came across Tunnels Beaches,
....... . ... and even happier that it was in the UK. We booked the beautiful accommodation at Bath House from Mon - Thurs for our close family
....... . ... and friends, and were able to host drinks the first evening for our guests who had travelled from far and wide. It was fantastic as we
....... . ... stretched our wedding celebrations over three days with our favourite people.

....... . ... As we live a distance from Ilfracombe, we communicated with the brilliant wedding team - Tanya, Catherine and Jamie a lot! They
....... . ... were always really helpful and patient even with the simplest of queries. The venue is stunning and didn't need a lot of decoration,....... . ... ....... . ... we only added splashes of our colour theme and some personal touches. The menu options were amazing, it took us the best part
....... . ... of a day to decide (and agree) on the options, and there is something to meet all dietary requirements.

....... . ... On our wedding day the sun came out for us, the staff were so attentive to our every need, guiding us through the day, keeping
....... . ... things running smoothly without us even noticing, so friendly and happy - even handing over sun cream after hearing us talk about
....... . ... someone getting burnt. We were married outside to the sound of the sea, with a string quartet playing in the background, it was
....... . ... beautiful and so romantic. The food on the day was the most delicious you can imagine!

....... . ... All in all our wedding was even more perfect than we could have dreamed, all of our guests thought it was the best wedding they
....... . ... had ever been to, even the band told us it was the most amazing venue they had played at. If you are looking for somewhere
....... . ... magical to have your special day, you MUST book Tunnels Beaches."

....... . ... "We wanted to get married by the sea, so 2 years out from our planned date we started to look at venues near the ocean. We came
....... . ... across a few different places but only ever visited Tunnels Beaches.

....... . ... On a grey winters day in December we met Jamie who gave us the Tunnels tour. Jamie is very personable and professional but to
....... . ... be honest (sorry Jamie!) he didn't really have to say anything because when you see Tunnels you'll know as we did, that this beautiful
....... . ... place would be the venue for our special day.

....... . ... The whole team at Tunnels are amazing. We are not local to Devon and therefore had to plan the majority of our wedding remotely.
....... . ... I can imagine for some this could be difficult but Tanya our Wedding Co-ordinator from Tunnels was so professional, answering every
....... . ... query we had quickly and with care. She made the whole process simple and gave us confidence that our wedding was in good hands
....... . ... as the day got nearer.

....... . ... Our wedding day itself was perfect. We had a mix of weather, sunshine and showers but the venue and staff are very adaptable to
....... . ... cope with anything. From the ceremony right through to the evening entertainment the Tunnels staff were great. They handle all
....... . ... the transitions seamlessly. Most of the day we hardly noticed them but if you did need anything they were at hand to help
....... . ... accommodate any requests we had.

....... . ... You can't write a testimonial about Tunnels without mentioning the food. The gourmet BBQ was fantastic, a real delight. So many
....... . ... of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the meal. The desserts are really yummy.

....... . ... As our special day came to an end we had comments from our guests like "best wedding ever" and "you've set the bar high". There's
....... . ... no doubt that this was in part down to the incredible job the tunnels team performed and of course, this amazing wedding venue."

....... . ... We tried our best to keep everything local and couldn't have wished for better with our gorgeous flowers from Offshore Blooms,

....... . ... "I want to get married in shorts and flip flops" he said. So research began and led us very quickly to this amazing venue...

....... . ... Our day was outstanding, from the venue itself, to the amazing staff and food of such high quality. You just feel like you don’t have
....... . ... a care in the world, as it all seamlessly happens around you and you don’t have to think about anything other than your day with
....... . ... friends and family.

....... . ... Clearly this level of ‘secret service’ is due to the fantastic team work from all involved with the Tunnels, from visiting the venue
....... . ... and booking the big day, to the day itself. Every one of the Tunnels team should feel immensely proud of the part they play, thank
....... . ... you all so much!

....... . ... The FAQs section on the website is so useful, as not living close by, the recommendations are invaluable. Paul, The Wedding Spinner,
....... . ... was truly the best DJ we have ever had the privilege of knowing, catering for all our musical tastes from the children to the 70+ year
....... . ... old’s. He certainly managed to keep me on the dance floor for 6 hours, had to wear off the BBQ somehow! Kelly from Offshore Blooms
....... . ... did the flowers, again, although I never met Kelly before the day, having talked to her by phone and then a couple of emails, my
....... . ... flowers were absolutely perfect. Thank you to both Paul and Kelly as well for their part in our celebrations.

....... . ... You can never replicate a day in life ever and even if we could we wouldn’t change any part of the day, feel very lucky in life to have
....... . ... been able to get married here and share it with our friends."

....... . ... "We would like to thank everyone at Tunnels Beaches for helping us to have the most incredible wedding day!...

....... . ... We moved from Australia three months before our wedding date and so nearly everything was booked and planned online in the

....... . ... Tunnels, we knew we had found the perfect venue and that we had nothing to worry about.

....... . ... Having lived in Australia for three years, we were looking for a beautiful outdoor, coastal venue and Tunnels looked perfect online.
....... . ... When we finally saw the venue ourselves three months before the wedding, we were absolutely blown away - it looks incredible on
....... . ... the website but it's a million times more stunning in real life.

....... . ... In the lead up to the wedding, nothing was too much trouble - there was always someone lovely to answer questions quickly, which
....... . ... made the process easy and stress-free.

....... . ... The day itself was more perfect that we could ever have dreamt it would be. Tunnels even provided the sunshine! So many of our
....... . ... guests have said that it was the best wedding they have been to, and they forgot that they were in England!

....... . ... We really can't fault anything, from start to finish. The food, staff, suggested suppliers, Bath House - it was all incredible and we

....... . ... We mostly planned the day from our home in London, and any fears that this would hinder the planning were quickly put to rest
....... . ... by the amazing staff, especially Tanya and Jamie. They have been so helpful, responding to endless emails and questions to help
....... . ... us feel really calm and cared for. The staff were fantastic on the day, always there to assist with any requests but never in our
....... . ... faces.

....... . ... Then there was the food! The barbecue was absolutely divine and so many of our guests have said it was the best wedding food
....... . ... they have ever had. The view of the tide rolling in as we ate was something we definitely won’t forget in a hurry, and as we
....... . ... don’t drink we loved the delicious mocktail that was provided to complement the guests’ sangria in the evening.

....... . ... We sourced most of our suppliers through the Tunnels’ recommended list and were so happy with all our choices. Anna and Elaine
....... . ... from Changing Faces made the girls look absolutely stunning (and really helped to calm Jo’s morning panics), Mark (Evolve)
....... . ... captured the day exactly how we wanted with beautiful photos, and The Wedding Spinner provided the perfect soundtrack,
....... . ... somehow seamlessly mixing our requests for motown, soul, punk, ska and drum and bass - we salute you!

....... . ... "Our search for the perfect wedding venue was a very brief one, we only had to view Tunnels Beaches once before we decided
....... . ... it would be perfect for us. When we visited for the first time it was everything we were looking for, we didn't even look anywhere
....... . ... else! It's hard to properly describe how unique a place it is, but we couldn't imagine a better place to spend our special day.

....... . ... The staff were exceptional throughout the preparation and the big day itself, answering any questions quickly and doing everything
....... . ... they could to make it as worry-free as possible, and it made us much more relaxed knowing everything was taken care of. We can't
....... . ... thank them enough for helping make everything run so smoothly!

....... . ... We would absolutely recommend booking Tunnels Beaches, we thought it was perfect on our first viewing, and it blew us away when
....... . ... the day finally came. A massive thank you to everybody involved who helped make our day magical and perfect in every way!"

....... . ... "Our fairy tale with Tunnels Beaches began 2 years before our wedding day. Both having a love of the sea, we initially wanted
....... . ... to get married in the Caribbean. However, having faced the impossible reality that many of closest loved ones would not be
....... . ... able to share such a special time with us, we began to search possible locations in the UK. We immediately struck upon
....... . ... Tunnels Beaches and we couldn’t wait to arrange a visit to see this spectacular location. Living in Kent meant that we would
....... . ... have to wait a month before visiting; wondering all the while if the photos online could possibly be a genuine portrayal of the
....... . ... venue itself. We were not disappointed. Emerging through the tunnel on a cloudy, blustery May day, the view literally took our
....... . ... breath away and we are not afraid to admit brought a little tear to the eye. Immediately, we booked our wedding day and from
....... . ... then on could not stop thinking about this magical place.

....... . ... Since the initial booking, the Tunnels Beaches family never let us down. Their recommendation of suppliers was spot on.
....... . ... The food was AMAZING – the white chocolate cheesecake went down especially well!

....... . ... To say the admin in the build-up to our day was efficient is an understatement which completely contributed to the relaxed
....... . ... approach we wanted to take. Thank you to all the staff who worked so effortlessly on the day and to Jamie and Zoe for creating
....... . ... the Tunnels Beaches dream.

....... . ... We will definitely be visiting in the future. Thank you a million times over!"

....... . ... "Louis and I fell in love with Tunnels Beaches the minute we first stepped onto the terrace. It is the most stunning, dramatic,
....... . ... beautiful and breath-taking place, and the most incredible venue for a wedding that you will remember with the fondest
....... . ... memories, and biggest smiles, forever.

....... . ... Over the ensuing 11 months, the team couldn’t have been more helpful in assisting us to arrange our special day – Tanya and
....... . ... Jacs were brilliant.

....... . ... On our BIG day, the weather was just perfect for early May, I met with Jacs and Tanya on the morning of the wedding to run
....... . ... through the plans for the day, and update them on all the final little details – then I left them to it, confident that our wedding
....... . ... would be all we had dreamed it would be.

....... . ... We enjoyed an emotion filled day, surrounded by friends and family. We got married on the terrace, had photos on the beach,
....... . ... enjoyed an absolutely delicious wedding breakfast (massive compliments to the Chef – yummy!!), and escaped for quiet moments
....... . ... on the roof terrace from where you get the most spectacular view across your wedding, the beach, cliffs and sea. As the sun set,
....... . ... the sky was filled with yellow, orange, mauve and grey – it was truly awesome. We had a campfire, s’mores, sparklers and danced
....... . ... the night away.

....... . ... So many of our guests have said what an amazing day it was, how incredible the venue is, how tasty the fantastic variety of food
....... . ... was, and how they have never been to a wedding like it.

....... . ... Tunnels Beaches is truly the most perfect place we could have chosen for our wedding – professional, wonderful, and with a backdrop
....... . ... that will mesmerise you – whatever the weather. We have most definitely got a little piece of Ilfracombe in our hearts forever, and
....... . ... can’t wait to come back and visit."

....... . ... We're vegan, and Tunnels were incredibly accommodating - putting on an amazing selection of food for us, as well as meat for
....... . ... those that wanted it. We ended up having the ceremony indoors because it rained. We were concerned that this would happen,
....... . ... but if anything it was better indoors! The glass windows all fold back, and the sea air and the sound of the waves all floated in.
....... . ... And we still managed to sneak in a few beach photos when the weather cleared.

....... . ... Everyone commented on the food so massive thanks to the Chefs... the Monkfish skewers, Sea Bass and BBQ Lamb were quite

....... . ... The venue with its new extension was so beautiful and with so many of my guests, Dean and I coming from hospitality and mostly

....... . ... "Whoa...the Tunnels Beaches is the most perfect wedding location and will recommend to anyone who listens – we even had
....... . ... a couple of bridesmaids gutted they didn’t find this place first! The renovations really have made a difference to the venue
....... . ... and created so much more space. It really is a beautiful place.

....... . ... This was our first venue we looked at for our wedding and even on the wet and windy January day, we knew we had found our
....... . ... place. If we could love this place in such miserable conditions, things could only get better!

....... . ... The staff, throughout the planning process, were brilliant. They were happy to answer any silly/stupid/random questions that
....... . ... we had and quickly too. Living in Bedfordshire, our visits were limited to just twice but both times we were put at ease and
....... . ... nothing was too much trouble.

....... . ... Our wedding day started so well with the weather that we prepared for an outside ceremony – unfortunately this didn’t stay
....... . ... like this and as soon as Carla walked up the aisle, a few spots of rain appeared. However, staff were available to hand out
....... . ... umbrellas and it wasn’t a problem for anyone! Everything happened so seamlessly – the music, the timings and the drinks
....... . ... ready for us when walked back up the aisle as husband and wife! Your attention to detail, professionalism and efficiency
....... . ... is what made this day perfect and meant we could enjoy the day and not worry about the small things – you guys really know
....... . ... how to run a wedding!

....... . ... The food….whoa….all the guests have raved about the Gourmet BBQ. It was cooked to perfection and we certainly didn’t
....... . ... take advantage of going back for more but we know others did. There is so much choice on the menu that we found this the
....... . ... hardest thing of all to chose from. If we could have it all – we probably would have done!

....... . ... It was a beautiful day. We were surround by close family and friends and wouldn’t have changed things for the world. Our
....... . ... guests have all raved about the location, breathtaking views and your amazing staff. We thank you and in particular we want
....... . ... to say a huge massive thank you to Jacs for all your help and support– we sure did have you running around!

....... . ... Our recommendation to anyone considering Tunnels Beaches – stop looking and just book it!
....... . ... THANK YOU ALL - WE COULDN'T BE HAPPIER! xxx"

"Louise and I first heard about Tunnels Beaches from seeing the photographs of a friend's wedding. We knew the location suited
....... . ... the relaxed and picturesque wedding we wanted, and the moment we visited the venue and spoke to the manager we knew it
....... . ... was perfect. Living in Cheltenham we arranged two further visits to the venue in order to discuss options and cement plans in
....... . ... our minds. On both occasions we were met by a manager and were put completely at ease. This really quelled any worries we
....... . ... might have otherwise had organising a wedding so far from home.

....... . ... On the day we found ourselves very lucky with weather, for the entirety of our wedding day the sun shone brightly and warmly.
....... . ... It was as if somebody knew how important this day was to us! The bridal party prepared themselves at a local venue whilst my
....... . ... family, groomsmen and I decorated the venue with the brilliant assistance of the morning staff, and within a couple of hours
....... . ... it was exactly as my wife had requested.

....... . ... The ceremony went beautifully, and everything that I had arranged seemed to happen in the background without my needing to
....... . ... coordinate it. This allowed us to fully enjoy the day and the special occasion with our family and friends. I am not quite sure why
....... . ... this surprised me so much - after all the staff and management are experts at running weddings, but their efficiency and
....... . ... professionalism impressed me more than I can adequately describe.

....... . ... The gourmet BBQ was simply fantastic and countless guests commented on how it was the best food they had tasted at a wedding,
....... . ... and the fire pit being lit in the evening impressed many a guest too.

....... . ... I appreciate that it's a cliche to say that your wedding day is the best day of your life, but for Louise and I this is true. We were
....... . ... surrounded by our closest friends and family, in a breathtaking location, and the day went so smoothly and beautifully we would
....... . ... not change a single thing.

....... . ... My only advice to potential couples considering Tunnels Beaches as a wedding venue is to forget the competition and book...
....... . ... Your wedding will stand out from the crowd and be loved by everybody."

....... . ... "As soon as we stepped foot inside your wonderful venue we had no doubt it was right for us; and it was. It is an utterly
....... . ... breathtaking place, so atmospheric and perfect. From the very start it was an almost effortless process. You took care of
....... . ... everything. Your laid back but organised approach really suited us and ensured we felt relaxed yet reassured. Nothing was
....... . ... too much trouble and everyone was just brilliant on the day - professional and with a stealth-like efficiency.

....... . ... We could not have asked for a more perfect day. The sun shone so brightly and long into the evening for the most amazing
....... . ... sunset we have ever seen (quite a contrast to the sideways rain at 8am). Our guests enjoyed themselves so much - we know
....... . ... this as they're still talking about it months later. The Gourmet BBQ was just delicious and a great fit for the weather and
....... . ... location. We wouldn't change a thing. Thank you!"

....... . ... "Having selected about 5 different wedding venues close to the ocean or waters edge we decided to visit them all as weekend
....... . ... breaks. Tunnels beaches was the first, and after spending 5 minutes at the venue we booked on the spot! It was exactly what
....... . ... we were looking for, relaxed, focused professional with stunning views out over the sea.

....... . ... We also booked the Bath house, a restored 9 bedroom Victorian bath house just in front of the Tunnels which in itself was
....... . ... a master stroke. It seemed expensive at first but when you split it down it cost about the same as an average guest house,
....... . ... but there is nothing average about this place! 9 double en-suite rooms, all lockable and private with two separate chill areas
....... . ... and a stunning ultra modern kitchen! It's a wedding photographers paradise! The wifi at the Bath House and Tunnels venue
....... . ... was super fast and enabled us to just set our own playlist on Spotify and play it through the day and evening.

....... . ... On the day the venue was dressed by our fantastic florist Carole from Charlie's Florist, who captured our ideas perfectly, and
....... . ... the live music from Roger Styles who was absolutely awesome, if we were asked how we found him once, we were asked 100
....... . ... times!

....... . ... We went for the drinks package with the ice filled gunk tank with Pimms, beers and cider & canapés after the ceremony. We
....... . ... also opted for the Gourmet BBQ which was absolutely fantastic. The ice cream bike was a hit with children and adults alike,
....... . ... as were the bacon baps and wedges late into the evening.

....... . ... Lastly I need to mention the staff. From the chef, to the bar staff, those who served canapés, supervisors and management.
....... . ... To name anybody would be a travesty to the rest, you were all more than fantastic, you were brilliant. I cannot wax lyrical
....... . ... enough. You made our special day fabulous without seeming to break into a sweat."
....... . ... All our love, Nic & Julie x

....... . ... "We would like to thank Tunnels Beaches for enabling us to have the most amazing wedding day. Photos can not do the venue
....... . ... justice as the view and setting is just incredible, with the staff going out of there way to make the day run smoothly. A key
....... . ... example of this was the bar staff sneaking the groom a couple of shots before it was time to make his speech! The staff were
....... . ... flexible as to how we wanted the day to run, allowing us to make changes last minute, which was fantastic with the unpredictable
....... . ... British weather. Our photographer Matt Fryer, also helped with this, talking us through the running and communicating what we
....... . ... wanted with Tunnels staff.

....... . ... Despite the rain during our ceremony, we were able to decide last minute as it slowed to a drizzle, that we wanted to go ahead
....... . ... and get married outside. The rain did not put a dampner on our day and the sun came out as soon as we were married! We chose
....... . ... to eat inside, where the view is still amazing, we had about 80 guests and it made for a lovely and intimate wedding breakfast.
....... . ... We were worried beforehand about the amount of food, however we could have fed everyone twice! The food was delicious and
....... . ... people are still talking about the Salmon.

....... . ... Once again we can not thank Tunnels Beaches and its staff enough for helping to make our day so perfect!"

....... . ... "We celebrated our wedding at Tunnels in July 2016. I cannot imagine a better place to share such an important day with our
....... . ... family and friends.

....... . ... As a venue, you couldn’t imagine anywhere more atmospheric to get married. The sound of the waves on the beach, the amazing
....... . ... scenery and the salty smell on the air create such an amazing experience for the senses. With great food, great company and
....... . ... great weather, Tunnels genuinely is leaps and bounds ahead of anywhere else.

....... . ... From the first moment, the entire staff were absolutely 100%. Throughout the preparation and the whole day, the team were able
....... . ... to offer help and advice, making our day run as smooth as butter. Their experience speaks volumes, and the ability to amend
....... . ... plans on the fly depending on external sources is amazing. The team have perfected the art of hiding in plain sight too. You never
....... . ... “notice” that they are there, but if you need something, they appear, apparently out of nowhere, to make sure that your celebration
....... . ... is perfect.

....... . ... We booked the gourmet BBQ for our afternoon meal, along with the tapas for evening snacks. Just like everything else about this
....... . ... place, the food was perfect, served perfectly and just served to maintain the 100% score for Tunnels.

....... . ... I genuinely couldn’t recommend Tunnels Beaches any more."

....... . ... "Many thanks for hosting our big day on the 2nd July 2016. What an amazing location to start the next chapter in our lives as
....... . ... a married couple. We cannot sing your praises enough for everything that ended up making the day. From the location being
....... . ... glorious, to the Bath House, to how delicious the food was and how professional and understanding all the staff were.

....... . ... The day was so easy and carefree, it was nice knowing we didn't have to worry about anything at all. The staff were nothing but
....... . ... professional, discreet, friendly and helpful. It left us nothing to worry about except remembering to say our vows at the right time!

....... . ... We have had compliments from all attendees about the food and drink, which surpassed expectation and that Sea Bass was just
....... . ... outstanding!

....... . ... The day ended up just perfect and so memorable and it wouldn't have been like that should we have been worried or stressed
....... . ... about any of the details but you guys just took care of it all so effortlessly and it just happened so seamlessly. So thank you."
