We held our Wedding at the Durham Marriott Hotel, Royal County on Saturday 24th March and we just wanted to say a thank you to Dionne for everything she has done in helping us plan for our day. The day was lovely and as you promised everything went to plan.Sent on 03/05/2012

From Day one....
Hello DionneSent on 03/05/2012
We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did to make our Wedding Day special. We had a fantastic day, as did all of our guests and everything was just as we envisaged.
As you know we looked at several venues in the Durham area before choosing the County and our decision was largely based on your personal approach and flexible attitude. From day one you shared our vision and gave us the feeling that we were individual and nothing was too much trouble. You also gave us great advice and the recommendations you made were perfect. All of the small touches that you personally added were also greatly appreciated.
The Marriott group should be very proud of you and the operations team at the County. We would not hesitate to recommend the Royal County to anyone planning their Wedding.
Thank you again for everything you have done.
