Our Wedding Day was Flawless!
We want to thank you for the incredible work you did arranging our Wedding. From start to finish helping us create the perfect menu of our dreams, you understood our budget and made an amazing effort to accommodate. I loved the personal touches you made, especially the tasting night, this made us feel more confident about the food that was being served and the fact that all the staff were so down to earth and nothing was a problem made us feel really welcome. I will definitely be recommending you to everyone who is looking for a Wedding and want to thank you for making our wedding day flawless.Sent on 28/02/2017

It was the best day of my life, most brides leading up to their wedding are very stressed but I had nothing to worry about as my wedding co-ordinator had it all covered & kept in touch the whole time, serving staff were brilliant & very friendly. If I could do it all again I would. Perfection!Sent on 08/02/2013

Right from booking our wedding over two years ago, the wedding planning has been with us every step of the way and helped us right up till the big day, she was fab!! The wedding it's self was amazing, the staff went above and beyond measure to make our day feel special and nothing to big or small was ever to much to ask. The food was lovely and the selection on the evening buffet was fantastic. We could not of picked a better venue to hold our wedding.....DO NOT overlook it!!!
