Wow...where do I start, our day was simply amazing thanks to the organisation and detailed planning from Charlie and his team at Donnington Grove.

Everything was perfect from the Registrars at West Berkshire office's, the food, the flowers the band and the driver that collected us at 4am the

following morning. The hotel has around 40 bedrooms which meant all of our guests could stay overnight and enjoy a leisurely breakfast while we were eating ours high in the sky.

There were 80 guests for the marriage ceremony in the Cloudy suite, we had drinks and canapes in the Kennet while the photographer snapped away, then sat in the beautiful, heated marquee for a blessing and our celebrations continued. We had quite an unusual twist on afternoon tea for a less informal touch; starting with Spiced parsnip soup in shot glasses with homemade parsnips crisps. Followed by finger sandwiches, the team knew where all the dietary requests were seated - as for the name it we had it! It was so refreshing to work with a venue that said "yes" to our ideas instead of steering us to something else. Individual cakes and homemade scones with clotted cream, mini posset pots and Mojito jellies finished off the afternoon celebrations.

Around another 30 guests joined for the evening celebrations. The Will Blake Band played the first dance and all of our fav's with the recommended DJ playing in-between. The evening food went down a treat, mini pork joint for hog-roast style sandwiches, Chicken and Mushroom Stroganoff, garlic ciabatta, cheeses and the wedding cake was all perfect too.

I am sure we will be back in the future for our Anniversary parties and thank you once again to the everyone that made our day a special and memorable as we wanted it to be... and more!!

Kind regards,
Adam and Nigel
