    Dear Izzy and all the team at The Birch
    We wanted to say thank you for all your hard work- we had the most perfect Wedding day, Frim the initial planning stages, through to the day itself; your help, advice and support was second to none. The special, more personal touches really added a little something extra to our day. We really appreciated just how friendly and accommodating you all were. The food was fantastic too! We, and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day and much of that was down to your professionalism! Thank you again.

    We recently had our Wedding reception at The Birch Hotel, we couldn’t fault the process from the start.
    Izzy and her team were absolutely amazing in organising our big day at the hotel which took a lot of pressure of us both, leading up to the big day. On arrival to the hotel everyone was greeted with a glass of Prosecco in the lounge and the staff were so friendly and welcoming.
    The wedding breakfast was fantastic with three different options to choose from which catered for our guests very well who had dietary requirements. The Birch organised our DJ and Photo Booth operators which the staff were so professional throughout the night.
    The hot fork buffet in the evening was again absolutely amazing with more than enough food to go round with the staff continuously topping up the food.
    We had the honeymoon suit on the night of our wedding which was wonderfully decorated in rose petals and candles. Thank you so much again to Izzy and her team this really was the best day of our lives and was all down to the hard work which went on preparing making this day so special for us. Thank you so so much.

    Definitely Recommend

    Hi Caroline,
    We just wanted to say a big thank you for all the hard work you and your team put in to make Z and Ms' wedding a real success, they said they had an amazing time and they thought it couldn't have gone any better, it was exactly what they dreamed it would be and better.
    Thank you so much for making everywhere look so beautiful and for coordinating everything so that the day ran smoothly, you did a great job. We really appreciated how friendly all the staff were at the hotel, lots of the guests commented on this as it added to the lovely atmosphere. Thanks also to those that worked hard on the food it tasted delicious and was so beautifully presented.
    We also really enjoyed staying at the hotel and having breakfast with our friend and family in the morning.
    So, again thanks so much for everything, we will definitely recommend 'The Birch' to our friends as we had such an enjoyable weekend.

    April 2010 wedding

    copy of feedback email:

    Please pass on to all the staff at the Birch our BIGGEST Heartfelt Thanks for all the hard work on our wedding day! They each did their best to make us feel comfortable and ensure our day was the best it could be, by being continuously pleasant and fun and by preparing the rooms just as we wanted.

    Special thanks to Mark and Andy the Duty Managers who made sure our wishes were kept and that the day kept flowing. Extra special thanks to Andy who was very diplomatic with my chief bridesmaid and kept her in check which can be difficult. Thanks also to the guy at the bar (sorry can't remember his name) for letting us take over for the photos!

    And thanks to you Kate for remaining calm and organising everything!

    Also the rooms were kept lovely and clean and it was a pleasure to stay there!

    On my goodness how could I forget to thank the chef! The food was absolutely marvellous, the wedding breakfast was done so well both parents didn't stop telling everyone about it. The buffet went down a treat, and kept a lot of hungary guests satisfied. We will definitely be recommending it!

    Thanks again guys,

    from Mr and Mrs Woodcock
