    Winter Wedding

    We wanted to say a Massive Thank You for giving us the Best Wedding Day we could have ever asked for.

    From start to finish your services were professional, genuine and truly outstanding. Wedding planning to menu tasting and onto the big day where all our guests felt extremely cared for, nothing was ever too much. Your staff were efficient and friendly and the food was just divine. All in all, everything was just stunning.

    Your expertise and passion is something to be admired and we cannot thank you Katie, Tomek (head waiter), Bob (Toast master) and all your staff enough. You are all a real asset to the Balmoral.

    We cannot recommend the Balmoral highly enough.

    Warm regards,

    Isla & Alan Beattie-Wharton
