A few stand out of thanks are deserved for Lindsey and the brilliant coordination and attention to detail. For Cat and everything on the day she did to ease the strain (and what a shift she did), thank you! But also to everyone at South Lodge. Everyone was brilliant, considerate, helpful and nothing was too much. So to all of the team, would you please pass on our thanks for making the day so special.
Finally, we cannot say enough how amazing our day was and the memory created will be with us for a long, long time. A huge thanks to you and all of the team.

Our stay at the hotel was so comfortable. What was also wonderful was the setting of the breakfast room the next day. Lovely!!
Just as a further note, we were so impressed with your masters of ceremony Mark. We could not have done without him. Also please thank Cat who was with us at the end of the evening and breakfast the next day. All your staff were just marvelous. All our guests have given us great feedback about the high quality service!
