Thank you so much for all of your hard work and efforts in helping Alan and I create our beautiful wedding.Sent on 02/12/2019
It was so lovely to have someone who was friendly, helpful and communicative. You made me feel like there was nothing more important than our wedding and felt like your time was completely devoted to us. You made the whole process a complete breeze.
To Alesha and her amazing team, you guys were like a well oil machine and did an incredible job on the operational/logistical element of the day. The venue looked amazing. The day went without a hitch (or so that’s how it felt) and your team were so lovely, helpful and supportive.
The meetings in the lead up to the wedding were ideal and we were both completely impressed on how everyone involved from the very start to the finish, contributed.

Amazing from start to finish
We don't know how to put into words how thankful we are to you for making our day completely perfect. It was amazing from start to finish. You thought of everything to ensure our day was perfect even making sure the surprises ran smoothly and keeping the secrets, I had no idea!!Sent on 02/12/2019
The ceremony went smoothly as could be, with the extra chorus of the flamingos. The food was exquisite, which everybody commented on! All the staff we were so kind, thoughtful and couldn't do enough to help us and our families.
Alysha you were an absolute angel throughout the whole day. Keeping me calm and ensuring the day went as amazingly as it could. Even going the extra mile with the cocktail bar. You looked after all guests brilliantly. I would recommend the Clifton Pavilion again and again for any occasion.
We are beyond happy with our day at the zoo. You made that possible.
Thank you again.
