    Absolutely Perfect!

    Holly and the team were brilliant even though we cancelled and then changed everything from a full day in May 2020 to just a Ceremony in May 2021. All because of COVID. We remained in contact with Holly who was both professional and jolly throughout, so when our new plans for 2021 were thwarted, She was happy to allow us to change to Ceremony only - as it turned out it couldn't have been better and we were both glad that we were forced to cancel the reception and evening do. I honestly cannot fault the Blackfriars team they were great.
