Beautiful location, great service, wonderful day
I fell in love with Wakehurst place when we first went to see it. I knew straight away this was going to be the place I was going to get married in, so much so I actually started to cry. It truly was perfect. The service I received from Katie and Caroline during the run up to the wedding was second to none. They were both very attentive and extremely supportive. We had to make a few changes here and there and they were both so helpful I really was impressed. Katie took all the stress out of the organising and on the day made sure everything ran smoothly (so much so that one of my guests thought I'd hired her as a personal wedding planner!). I have to make a special mention of the food - it was excellent, really was superb and again on the day when we had a few of the little guests not eating (my 18 month old niece) they happily accommodated her requests! During the wedding the staff were really helpful to all the guests including clearing up after the little ones ! I highly recommend Wakehurst place for a picture perfect venue, great service and excellent food. I will always go back there for visits as it has a special place in my heart.Sent on 26/07/2012
