Wedding Party
Venue Service

Hi Rachael, I just wanted to drop you a quick line to tell you how much we enjoyed Saturday night. Everything was perfect, and the additional suppliers you put me in touch with (DJ, Coco Luminaire and Big Purple) all collided to make the atmosphere just brilliant. In particular, Avril and the team were so lovely and very attentive, they absolutely made our event. I know of at least two of our guests who were so smitten with the place, they're considering hosting events of their own there, so it was an inadvertent sales pitch for Fresh Element and Baltic. Thank you once again, hope to be back very soon
