Mike and Becki Foster Wedding 24th August 2017
Venue Service

By Carole Spennewyn, on 27 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Aug 2017

Good morning On behalf of the Spennewyn and Foster families I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Moat House who was involved in making Becki and Mike's wedding on the 24th August so special, we all had a truly fabulous day. The venue looked stunning and everyone from the reception staff, to waiting on staff, to house keeping staff were very helpful. We would like to say thank you to everyone in the kitchen for serving us such a tasty wedding breakfast. There was lots of compliments on both the food and the very efficient service. (I had the blade of beef followed by the lemon tart both were delicious!) We would like to say a special thank you to Johanna for all her help and advice over the many months, from our initial enquiries last year to her calm presence on the day. Nothing was too much trouble for her. We would also like to say an enormous thank you to Tom Anderson. He was amazing and ensured that everything ran smoothly and seamlessly throughout the day and evening. He was brilliant; calming nerves and sorting things throughout the wedding day. He was always there organising and keeping an eye on things without being intrusive. A very professional young man. So Johanna and Tom and everyone else I just want to a say final thank you to you all, you were fantastic and a huge asset to the Moat House. Well done Best wishes Carole Spennewyn

Thank you...
