Truly Exceptional

We are delighted that we decided to hold our wedding reception at The Lake at Norsted Manor Farm and choose The Exceptional Group to organise it all. The setting is beautiful and we truly had THE BEST day

On the day, the weather was stormy to say the least (apparently rain is good luck on your wedding day). Despite this, Exceptional ensured the highest standards of service across the board. The tipi tents looked glorious, filled with pretty lights and gorgeous table arrangements. The staff were attentive and accommodating. The food was a real highlight; our guests have told us that it is some of the best food that they have ever eaten!

In the build-up to our special day, Helen and Kezi were outstanding. They worked tirelessly to ensure that our wedding breakfast was truly bespoke, which really showed on the day - every single detail was exactly as we wanted. Our guests could see how the day was matched closely to us and what we like, and they also said that it was one of the best events that they have ever attended (and many of our friends are events organisers themselves!)

We knew that planning a wedding would be a huge task, as it is for everyone. We had an added challenge with the fact that we live in Singapore, so time differences certainly came in to play! However, the communication from Helen and Kezi, and flexibility generally, meant that the process was as stress free as is possible.

Another element of the day that was the highest quality was the external providers. Helen and Kezi coordinated with them superbly and we were so pleased with what they provided. The florist deserves a special mention - the flower arrangements were stunning.

A huge thank you to Helen, Kezi and the rest of the Exceptional Events Team. We will definitely recommend you to friends and family; and will use you again should we host events in the future.
