    We couldnt asked for anything more

    Hi Kirsty,

    Firstly can we just say a huge thank you to you, Mo and all the staff at the barn. Everything went like clock work and we couldn't asked for anything more. #TEAMBARN.

    We aren't getting the professional photos for about 3 weeks so I have attached a few from the night taken by our guests. I'll forward the others over when we get them.

    Again on behalf of myself and my Husband (still sounds strange) we thank you for everything you have done for us.

    Best wishes
    Mr & Mrs Nundy
