We just wanted to say how much fun we had, and completely and utterly the best day ever yesterday. Everyone has been commenting on how nice the venue was and how lovely the staff were. Totally brilliant - and you really made the whole thing very easy for us from start to finish in terms of all

preparation and planning. So much so that the day itself was an absolute breeze! I am sure there was much hard work going on behind the scenes, but from front of house it looked effortless.

The rain didn’t put a damper on it, and I am hoping for some good rain shots as people cowered under bouquets and other useless rain-shielding implements! When Tom releases the photos we will send you a couple of the best ones.

Thanks once again for making our best day happen!

We both wanted to say the most massive thank you to everyone for making our wedding quite so magical (and taking all our stresses away!).

We had the best day imaginable and know all of our guests did too. They all thought the venue and all staff were truly amazing and raved about the food!

Thank you very much again!

What can I say about this wedding venue it is absolutely beautiful the food was perfect for our special day but most of all our wedding coordinator Heather was just simply amazing. There was nothing that was too much for her she made us feel like we were the only wedding that mattered. Me and my

husband felt so much love for heather we almost didn't want her as our wedding coordinator but as a guest at our wedding. It is simply no wonder why she has been shortlisted for wedding coordinator of the year but too us and I'm sure other wedding couples she has dealt with she is already the wedding coordinator of the century and the outcome of the voting won't change that for us
