How do you review perfect?

How do I begin this review, the truth is I've re-written it so many times I've lost count. We got married on the 22/10/22 - My bridal party and the groomsmen all got ready in the house, we had plenty of food and drinks throughout the morning and nothing was too much trouble. We married in the ON SITE church which was perfect and when we were all done we had drinks waiting for us.

Everything I had worried about melted away when we saw our guests enjoying the beautiful house and surroundings. Not one guest had a negative word to say. In the days after our wedding everyone has commented how truly wonderful, accommodating and friendly all the staff were. Including some of our external vendors!

My favourite thing may have been walking through the house to see that one the servers pouring my two young cousins tea and putting on posh voices, indulging them totally as 'big girls'

I have been a pretty big pain I'm sure mostly everyone will agree, with weird demands that I think everyone was probably sick of by the time we got to the day, but Amy & Marc agreed to everything I asked and wanted with the word no being totally off limits.

We had the most amazing day and I hate that it's all over, but I love that I now have the amazing memories of a perfect day.

To everyone at Stockton, but mainly to Amy, thank you for putting up with me and making my day EVERYTHING I ever wanted. I hope you know we will 100% be back whenever you have open days.
