Just a quick email to say a huge thank you for everything regarding our wedding. We had the most amazing day and the Glass Centre was just perfect. You organised everything so wonderfully and all the staff were fantastic, there were many comments of how pleasant bar staff etc were. The venue looked just as I hoped on a December's evening. I really can’t thank you enough. We will absolutely recommend the Glass Centre to anyone.
