We had an absolutely phenomenal time with yourselves and the care we received from the staff at the balmoral was exactly the quality we had anticipated. Thank you to everyone who was available on the day and to Katie for organising the entire wedding breakfast and reception for us. We really appreciate all of your hard work and for accommodating us at such short notice!

Morning Claire Just a quick note to say thanks very much for all your organisation on Saturday, and in the build up to it. We had a truly unforgettable day, which was in no small part down to yourself, Morris and the rest of the staff at the hotel. We cannot talk highly enough about you all. We have had so may people passing comment on the hotel and the staff as well, so thanks for all your efforts Best wishes Lynne and Steven

By Anneliese and Richard Riggs, 3rd April 2010, on 04 May 2010

Dear Kieron, We really have to thank you, Claire and all your colleagues for making our wedding such a memorable event. You really did take care of everything, and we and all our guests were made to feel very well looked after. The ceremony went well and the dinner and drinks were really amazing it couldn't have been better. All the attention to detail and the excellent service made all the difference for such a special event. We'll definitely be staying at the balmoral again some time in the future, perhaps for an anniversary, who knows... Many thanks again and best regards
