We are coming down from our amazing day, and wanted to reiterate how fantastic you were and how grateful we are for all your efforts. You really went above and beyond, and it made our day perfect and even better than we could have hoped for. Our guests were wowed, as were we! The fact that all the bits and bobs were saved and ready for us to collect the following day, even the flowers, was so appreciated.

Thank you for all the help with the preparations. And thank you to you and all the other staff who worked so hard and late to lay on such a wonderful wedding party for us on Saturday. We had so many compliments about the food (I think it may even have converted a few guests to veganism). Please pass on our thanks to the chef for creating an amazing menu that fitted our myriad constraints
