It was the most perfect day
Hi JuliaSent on 02/08/2019
I just wanted to email to say a massive thank you for the most amazing day!
You all worked so hard to make it so perfect!
Thank you for holding the ceremony outside at such short notice too. Simon said you had to re set it all up! Thank you! You organised us all so well and really made me and the bridal party feel at ease.
I would like to say a special mention to one of the men. I didn’t catch his name but he was the short (don’t say I said that) chap with the glasses. He was amazing! Nothing was too much hassle for him and I had so many comments from guests on how polite and hard working he was.
So thank you to all of you!
It was the most perfect day.
