A wonderful day

Just wanted to say thank you to you and all your team at Lilleshall for making our wedding day run so smoothly.

We had a wonderful day, full of laughter and smiles from start to finish. There were a lot of positive comments from our guests about the food, rooms, gardens and your friendly staff.

It was such fun planning our day and we couldn't have wished for a better venue. Suited us perfectly.

Above and Beyond

Myself and Leanne would like to thank you and your team for an absolutely amazing day.

From our arrival on the day before till leaving Sunday Morning we feel that yourself and the team have gone above and beyond. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and nothing was too much trouble; From taking Myself and Leanne the 40 meters in the mini bus (with a sheet in it so we didn't get dirty) to Ford hall because it was drizzling, to finding us in the hail with an umbrella just in case; and even giving our guests a lift to a nearby hotel at the end of the evening.

To have been any more looked after wouldn't have been a possibility. Our day was perfect, and this was in part because of your outstanding venue and team.

Special day made perfect!

Everything was perfect for the whole day. We had lovely comments regarding the venue, grounds and the staff. Everyone was so well mannered and nothing was too much trouble. My friend was also offered a room to feed her baby! We're so overwhelmed still by the whole day.

Thank you so much for all your help with all the planning and organisation for the day, you really helped massively and took a lot of pressure and stress from me.

Married in October, 2015.
