    Cant thank your team enough

    Can't thank you and your team enough for organising the day. It was the perfect balance of ceremony and fun. Everyone was blown away by the beautiful building and the way it lends itself perfectly to the occasion. Your attention to detail and relaxed approach helped the day go perfectly.

    Made us feel at ease.

    We were lucky to have Kerry helping us organise our wedding at Blackfriars, she's very professional, trustworthy and happy to go above and beyond. Made us feel at ease on our big day knowing that Kerry was there to deal with any problems. Happy to help out of hours and made it feel easy to ask questions. Love Mr & Mrs Bubb.
