It was a perfect weekend and we want to thank you and your team for making it so special. Everything went so well and there was no stress at all. We will definitely be back for our wedding anniversary next year if not before! You were all really great.

Absolutely perfect
Venue Service

By Rosie Lambert, on 18 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Aug 2017

We would like to say a HUGE thank you to you both and everyone at Raithwaite for everything you did for us. Our day was perfect and you ensured it ran so smoothly and perfectly and I can't thank you enough. We have sent you both cards to express our gratitude so I hope these reach you soon. In the meantime I would just like to say sorry for being a little emotional and stressed out when we arrived, I think the emotions of the day had got to me, as well as being up since 4am with the kids! It felt like a relief to see both your smiling faces when I got out of the car. I thought back the next day about it and I realised I never thanked the driver of the golf buggy and I was so nervous I never even looked at him to acknowledge him, I am so sorry about this I feel so rude, I was so terribly nervous as I am not one for being the centre of attention. Even though we were a very small wedding you made us feel like the most important people in the world and even though it's a cliché I really did feel like a princess for the day and that was down to you both and your team of amazing staff. Thank you for the lovely cards and gift in our room when we returned in the evening too it was so lovely of you and I have it hanging in the living room where it will stay for all to see! We are already discussing our return visit and so looking forward to coming back.

Perfect in every way

It was a perfect day, exactly what we wanted and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you so much for all your help, it really wouldn't have happened without you (or I would've been very grey at least!) We'd love to come back sometime for a relaxing weekend.
