I burst into tears when we walked into the marquee
Venue Service

By Rebecca McCarthy, on 22 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2017

Honestly Alice I cannot even begin to thank yourself and the whole entire team for your hard work on Saturday, when we walked in the marquee I burst into tears because it just looked so stunning and to see all of my hard work and organisation come together with such an incredible venue – it really was better than I could of imagined. I hope all of the team had a good day, we could not be more thrilled or pleased with how the day went. Every single guest commented on what an incredible venue it was and all of the staff could not have been more polite or helpful. It really was the best day ever – and we will 100% be returning to see you in the future, hopefully I can convince S to have our first child’s christening here!! Lol! I’m sure we will keep in contact but should you need anything from us about the wedding, please do not hesitate. Thank you so much for all of your help and advice over the past eighteen months, I couldn’t of done it without you! Mrs M xxx

We had the most amazing wedding in the marquee
Venue Service

By Louise Robertson, on 22 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 26 May 2017

Hi Keighley, We’ve just got back from our honeymoon so we wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you to you and your team for ensuring we had the most amazing wedding. Your efforts were fantastic through, from answering 100s of our questions beforehand right through to your manager picking a plate of BBQ food for me to ensure my dress stayed untouched :) We will be speaking highly of your services to everyone who asks. Everything was perfect. Thank you. Love L & L

We had an amazing day as did all of our guests
Venue Service

By Diana and James Wright, on 16 Feb 2015

Hi Alex I wanted to drop a note, to say thank you for all your help and advice when planning our day and for being so accommodating. We just wanted to say we had an amazing day as did all of our guests, who were equally impressed by the service and hospitality of the Milsoms Team.... not forgetting the delicious food. The one thing that really struck me was the genuine interest by all the staff in making sure our day was special (they weren't there just to do a job). I don't think we could have chosen a more perfect setting :) :) :)

We could not fault anything
Venue Service

By Rob and Vicki Gladwin, on 27 Nov 2014

Dear Alex We wanted to thank you and the other staff involved for our superb experience at Le Talbooth. We couldn't fault anything and the guests have been as impressed as we were. Barney was an amazing anchor man by his discretion, experience and willingness to accommodate throughout the evening. The food was delicious and plentiful. So thank you in particular for fielding every request and query from Rob and me so well. There is no way the afternoon and evening would have been so memorable without you.
