Hello Kelly, Just a quick email to say a big thank you for all your help organising the wedding. Anita and dan were extremely helpful on the day, and if there were any glitches then I wasn't aware of them as they were sorted out promptly. I should however apologise that the day overran due to late arrival of the grooms party and therefore the turnaround for the main room was later than planned, however with thanks to the staff at the hotel, we managed to get everyone sat down for lunch not too late! Again a massive thank you to you and the rest of the staff both during the planning and on the day itself, Thanks and regards,

Thanks to you and your team the day was perfect

Venue Service

By Becky and Gary Prescott 2nd August 2012, on 27 Nov 2012

This is a short note of thanks on behalf of myself , my Wife Caroline , Gary and Becky and Gary’s parents John and Wendy. Several of us stayed the night before the wedding ( and enjoyed a sumptuous meal in the restaurant). The next day the Ceremony took place in the Hotel where we also had the wedding breakfast with you and at night the traditional Disco and buffet. I cannot stress how pleased we were with the event as a whole and how well it was managed. You were all so well organised . The food at both the wedding breakfast and evening function was faultless as were the service staff. To produce so many meals immaculately presented ( and hot ) was a tribute to the chef and his team. Particular thanks must go to Simon who took the strain away from us all on the day.

Everything went smoothly.
