  • We chose Tunnels Beaches for our wedding in October 2019. It's the first wedding venue we visited and we did not view any others. It's a breathtaking venue. I happen to be a wedding photographer - and over the decades have visited many lovely wedding venues across the UK and abroad. I have never been to a wedding venue and felt as special as Tunnels made us both feel. Their attention to detail, knowledge and professionalism is the best I have ever come across. Nothing was a problem to any of the amazing people who work there. The entire team at Tunnels Beaches made us feel totally at ease with any requests / questions we had...we always knew we were in safe hands. As for the day itself - it was awesome and exceeded our expectations. The food was incredible and guests are still commenting on it was the best and most unique wedding they had been too. We cannot wait to share our wedding photos when we receive them with our amazing venue. Thanks so much - to Jamie, Tanya, Catherine and the entire team for helping us create one of the most memorable days that we will treasure forever! Mr & Mrs Doyle xx
