Big thank you

We just wanted to thank you so much for all you and your team's hard work in organising our wedding. We can honestly say that from start to finish you have all been extremely helpful and nothing has been too much to ask. Our wedding day went without a hitch and we loved every minute of it. We have some amazing memories now and have already decided that we will return to the Park Inn on our forthcoming Anniversaries!
