absolutely perfect

We had a lovely wedding. Staff were professional, reliable and friendly in every aspect. Accommodated our wishes beautifully. Made for a stress-free wedding. Lots of personal touches. They even recognised and remembered us a year later! And the location takes your breath away every single time you go there. Even on a cold grey January afternoon!
