"On the day when you wanted everything to be perfect we were so lucky to have chosen such a beautiful location and had access to such a wonderful team that we did at Peppers The Sands Resort Torquay. Libby Kelly our wedding co-ordinator was brilliant, the staff made us feel so special and the reception looked amazing. All of our guests had a great time and enjoyed their short walk to their room afterwards!"

"The entire staff made us feel really welcome and the resort felt like our home for the weekend!

We were thrilled with our recent wedding at Peppers The Sands Resort Torquay. Libby and the staff were so welcoming and helpful, and the resort felt like our home for the weekend.

We had both ceremony and reception onsite and both ran smoothly, without a hitch. We received many compliments from our guests about the set up, food and service. We couldn't be happier with how our special day turned out, and would highly recommended Peppers The Sands Resort Torquay as a wedding venue."

To Dear Libby and ALL the staff at the Pepper Sands

Dave and I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone.

Not only was our wedding day everything we dreamed it would be, and so much more, but the whole weekend was amazing. Not only did you support me Libby from the very start but you always went above and beyond. Answering all of my emails and questions, nothing was ever to hard and I was not once told something couldn't be done.

Sarah, our accommodation was amazing and exactly what we needed to feel like we were on holidays, it gave us and the kids enough space to function without being on top of each other.

Berni, our reception was amazing and you and your staff were amazing, everyone commented on how helpful and amazing everybody was to them, that the food was amazing and served with beautiful smiles.

To everyone else, there was not one person who all of my guests dealt with that was not polite, helpful and so very kind.

Thank you thank you thank you to everyone, we will always remember our wedding day as one of the most amazing days of our lives and this was only enhanced by the people who helped us and went above and beyond for us. Please pass this around to everyone, we want everyone to know just how much we appreciate everything everyone one did.

We will sing The Sands praises to everyone will listen as I know every single one of our guests will.

Thank you Kindest regards and warmest wishes

Mr & Mrs Teresa & Dave Dearing :-)

"Libby, Peter and Bernie were amazing, taking care of all the little details such as taking our desserts back to the room so we could enjoy them later as we were not hungry at the time.

Everything ran so smoothly and I could not thank them enough. It was great to have everything on site, ceremony, reception and accommodation as everyone could just relax and enjoy them selves."

Lisa Vaughan and Shannon Keane

"Libby was fantastic! Extremely organized and extremely helpful!! We had the most fantastic wedding day at The Sands and would highly recommend it to future brides and grooms!

The service from when we booked, throughout the planning and on the day was absolutely amazing. The food was cooked to perfection and the views were spectacular! Thanks to Libby and the crew for making our day one to remember."

"This is a long overdue note of appreciation regarding your help and support during the months leading up to our wedding last November. You made the entire process from start to finish incredibly smooth and seamless; going above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble and your professionalism and calming influence gave us confidence in knowing that all was covered. Finding Catherine from 'So Exciting Draping' at the last minute was the icing on the cake. You were amazing and we would not hesitate to recommend Peppers to anyone. Thank you once again"

Mark and Samantha Johnston

Dear Libby and the team at Peppers,

I had to send you our official thank you card! We were thrilled with Peppers and could not be happier that we chose Peppers for our wedding reception. The staff, the food, the view, the quality of service, the quality of accommodation and the location of the rooms to the party was all perfect. Every tiny thing went to plan on the night – thanks again to you all.

Love from Alex and Sam McIlveen

"I just wanted to thank you for all of your help with the wedding, which we LOVED.  I have such magical memories that I will treasure forever.  We really had a wonderful time, and I genuinely want to thank you for your part in that.

So many people commented on the venue as well as the delicious food, which was also plentiful.  Rich's mum, in particular, raved over the cheeses and antipasto (and bread) and said the ravioli was delicious!!  Even my eldest sister, Andrea, who is a real foodie thought the food was great.  I was so relieved to get an Andrea tick of approval!!  I only regret that I didn't get to taste everything myself (I was too busy excitedly running around). Anyway, please pass my thanks onto the chef.  Please also thank the team who looked after us on the night.  They did a very professional job.

The venue looked beautiful and the set up worked exceptionally well - just the right amount of seating and certainly the right amount of space.  Having the lanterns and lights on the balcony added a sense of magic at night.  Another thing that worked well was the walking in of the chocolate cart.  The band announced it, and you should have seen the excitement.  It wasn't just the kids that rushed up - there were adults elbowing each other to get to it!  The jams were also very popular.  We made 140 of them and they all went, with some people missing out.  <

The honeymoon suite was also fantastic (I realised last night that I left my iPhone charger in it, but I have just emailed Sarah about that).

Anyway, we had a really lovely night, so thank you again.  I'll send you some pics when we get them (which won't be for a couple of weeks)."


"Stuart & I would like to send a special thank you to all the staff at the Sands who made our wedding day run so smoothly on May 21st , 2011.

We had an amazing wedding and we thought the Sands was an exceptionally professional and outstanding wedding venue. We were extremely happy and would recommend the venue to anyone. Thank you again for all your help."

Joelle & Stuart McColl 

"To the wonderful people at Peppers the Sands involved in our wedding reception on Saturday 18th June 2011, we wish to thank-you for making it all possible.

Libby, thank you for making the transition from working with Samala to yourself so smooth and worry free.  You showed genuine excitement for us during our planning and were always available to answer any of our questions.  Nothing seemed too difficult for you.  From  your personal touch, such as giving both of us and our best man coffees on a cold winters day, to putting together a thorough running sheet for the events of the big day, you really looked after us.

There are so many more great things we could say about having our wedding at Peppers the Sands but if we did this letter would never end.  So instead we say, we can't thank everyone enough and can't wait to recommend your establishment to all our friends and family who have not yet experienced your service for themselves.

We look forward to the pleasure of being at Peppers the Sands again."
