Firstly, we'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all your help in the run up to our wedding. It was a fantastic day, and we had a brilliant time! All of our guests enjoyed themselves and enjoyed being at the hotel. We had lots of compliments on their rooms, the grounds and the hotel in general. In particular, we would like to pass on the feedback that the food was excellent. It was really consistently good throughout the day, and lots of our guests complimented the food. The evening buffet was brilliant too. We'd also like to extend a huge thank you for Mark the toast master. He went above and beyond his duty all day and did such a fantastic job.

Super Day!
