    Could not have been more efficient...

    Just a note of thanks for looking after us on our special day last Saturday.

    Such a lot of planning goes into those few hours but your venue, and of course the weather, combined to make it a beautiful and special day that we will remember for ever.

    I would particularly like to single out Alec our Co-ordinator for the day who could not have been more efficient, and full of empathy for all of the Wedding party and their needs – something that is sometimes missing in staff who deal with customers on a regular basis, handling what are in reality the same old questions and issues!

    The Hotel Manageress on the day and in breakfast the following morning, whose name sadly escapes me, could also not have done more to make us feel valued.

    I trust you will pass on our gratitude to your team.

    We just want to do it all again!!

    Good Morning Sam,

    We just wanted to say Thank you so much to you and everyone at The Barns involved in our day on the 3rd of May. Mags & Alec we’re so attentive throughout the whole day and made us feel nothing was too much trouble. Holly did a great job of running the evening and keeping me involved.

    Thank you for your help on the build up, you must have so many weddings to plan but you knew exactly how to calm my over worrying mind!!

    We just want to do it all again!!
    We will be back!

    Love
    Mr & Mrs Barker
    xx
