Everything was perfect!
Venue Service

By Danny & Luke, on 27 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2017

Thank you Laura & team for making our day so special. We booked the Guildhall in Priory Park because we wanted a beautiful venue in a beautiful setting. Everything was perfect! Laura's experience and attention to detail was above and beyond our expectations and all of her flexibility beforehand contributed to making our day so special. The ceremony looked and ran perfectly and even after when we got caught with rain the girls were quick to change the setting for indoor wedding photos and drinks. Thank you all so much
