Back off honeymoon now
Back off honeymoon now and can’t thanks Bolton School Weddings and Events enough for our amazing wedding day. The professionalism of Nirvana, Adele, Helen and Sam was impeccable. We both felt really looked after from the day we booked the wedding right up to the big day. Excellent communication and so accommodating with us. Our day was the best we could have ever imagined from start to finish the girls went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect and it certainly was. The venue is stunning and so well looked after. Lots of guests commented on how amazing it was as a wedding venue. The great hall is breathtaking. Martin Taylor on piano was exceptional he’s so talented!! He played during the ceremony which was so beautiful and he really got the party started during the wedding breakfast, just amazing!! The food was delicious and the buffet was amazing too. Thank you all so much. Simon and RachaelSent on 30/10/2018
