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.

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

.... copy of feedback email: Hi Kate Just this minute back from dropping gas cylinder and much else back to hire shops etc… was thinking about you whilst driving back, and just composing an email as yours came in. Mike and I will be writing properly – but in the meantime, just to say, we had a fabulous, fabulous time – everyone your end worked so hard to make everything perfect for us – and it was. Too many names, and I’m sure I would forget someone, but of course Mark was spectacular, he worked like an absolute Trojan for us, as did Andy when he took over… Carol certainly got the measure of some of the guests very swiftly and had lots of fun with them – I heard so many complimentary things I want to try to capture and convey them all to you, but that may take some time….. so just for today, many many thanks for all your hard work….. we will be in touch. All the very best, Kate, thank you so, so much. Audrey
