That Personal Touch

“We like to work closely with our couples and intertwine everyone’s ideas. We like to give our advice on what works best, and ultimately we love to provide a final product that the couple is 100% overjoyed with.” - Sue, Holiday Inn Southend

It can host weddings of up to 120 people for a wedding and seated dinner, and up to 175 for an evening reception. It has four spaces licensed for civil weddings:

Great Cuisine

All the food is cooked in house by the experienced chefs from the hotel’s 1935 Rooftop Restaurant & Bar. Come for a tasting before your wedding day, experience your chosen wedding meal and discuss any menu adjustments you’d like to make sure it’s just the way you want it on your big day. From your after-ceremony canapes to your sit down wedding breakfast, each dish is freshly prepared with precision and taste at its heart.

Photo Opportunities

If you’re looking for an eyecatching spot for your wedding photos, try the sweeping glass and stainless-steel staircase,  and the impressive balcony which will give you beautiful sky shots against a unique and contemporary backdrop.
