Heart Felt Thanks
Venue Service

By Susan and Biarre, on 15 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 05 Oct 2019

I would never book or buy anything from a first look however I was so impressed with the staff and how they first looked after us right down to the detailed explanation of how everything would work we just booked and I can’t tell you how happy we are that I did. I was kept up to date with everything from day one and all we asked for was not only executed but to excess, all your staff from the wonderful people serving breakfast to the ladies at reception could not have been more kind. I use that word “kind” as it’s a long way from just nice that really made us feel that they cared and we mattered and that’s a big difference. I also need to mention two ladies above all as without them not only would the day have been much less enjoyable for all our guests my now wife would have had a melt down but they kept every worry away from her and myself. I would like to shower the highest praise on Joanne Pilling who organised everything with me up to a Week before the wedding and the wonderful lady who looked after me the whole week before and was on the ground during the two days we spent at the hotel Edwena, I truly can’t tell you how much of an asset these two ladies are to you they are more than lovely and I would like to pass on our most heartfelt thanks and we will make sure our paths cross again soon. Thank you all so much our entire lives from now on will be enhanced by the memories of our wedding day and that is all down to your staff so they will be with us forever.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

Hi Joanne I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work and organising the day for me. Everything went really well for Usaid and Ayesha, I had such good feedback from the guests it truly made my day. From booking the venue to the actual wedding day, I couldn’t have wanted it any better, thank you for all your efforts and hard work and putting up with my continuous demands. I will check with the photographer and share pictures of the actual day. Thank you once again on behalf of all the Saleh family.
