Amazing Day

Good morning Hannah,

Hope you’re well?

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the staff that were involved in our special day.
Lee and I, along with all our guests had just the best day. Everyone said how lovely all the staff were and how fantastic the food was, day and evening. Especially how beautiful our wedding breakfast was. The beef was beautiful.
Compliments to the chef and his team, if you could pass it on please?
Richard, was an absolute gentleman from start to finish. He certainly is an expert at his job. Everything went so smoothly and he couldn’t do enough for Lee and I. For that, we are truly thankful. He definitely made everything run so amazingly perfect and I couldn’t of asked for anymore. Thank you Richard.
Hannah, thank you so much for all your help in helping us arrange and prepare for our wedding. You were extremely helpful from start to finish. Thank you for being there on the day too. The wedding coordinator is not normally seen, which shocked my mom. Just goes to show how much care you put into your work. Thank you Hannah.
Also, a thank you to the guys that helped put the Waterloo suite together, who laid out the tables. The looked fantastic. They looked exactly how I imagined them to look. Everyone commented on how fantastic they looked.
Thank you all again for making our day so special. We truly can’t thank you enough.
Kind regards
Mr & Mrs Broadhurst

Many thanks

We're planning to come back to Hawkstone soon to say a proper one, but in the meantime... THANK YOU!
We had a wonderful day and have had nothing but compliments since on what a brilliant wedding it was. These compliments really should go to you and all the staff at Hawkstone.
We were so impressed by Mike, Hayley, Howard and everyone that played their part. The little touches like offering to take nan back to the hotel in a buggy after the reception (and my exhausted wife!!) meant a lot.
Hopefully catch you when we pop back soon. Until then, thank you for putting together an amazing day.

Grotto Wedding

Good afternoon Hayley and Howard, thank you so much for helping us organise our wedding. It was absolutely perfect. The grotto was amazing and everyone was impressed as we had not actually given out any details except to meet us at the hotel. Thank you so much. Sheila and Mike

Special thanks to Lindsay for all the preparation in the run up to the wedding, to Jo for all her help on the day and to the Night Porter who miraculously managed to find our Pageboys missing cufflink in the pitch dark.
