Wedding at the Crab and Lobster

Where do i even start with this review! I got married in Crab Manor Hotel and it was absolute perfection. The venue suited our quirky personalities to a tee and the staff couldn't do enough for us. John, our wedding coordinator, was simply amazing. A true master of his work and he made sure we were doted on throughout the day. John is so professional and helped to keep me grounded when the nerves were kicking in! The rest of the wedding team did an amazing job helping with the pre-planning and coordination of decorations on the day, relieving so much stress from me. The food and the accommodation is out of this world! This is no ordinary wedding venue. All the little quirky attending to detail make it extraordinary and the perfect setting for our perfect day.
