Ksenia and David onby
Let me start by saying we were both so happy with the whole day. It really was perfect for us, we wouldn't change a thing. And that was very much down to your amazing venue and unbelievable staff.
I had experienced this on some level from playing in Ballincura so often but it was only from having our wedding there that I truly saw and felt just how good they were.
At no point were we put under pressure throughout the day. All of the calls regarding weather were the right ones, despite my feelings otherwise at the start of the day. Declan, Orela and Lisa managed the whole day perfectly, everyone's experience shone through and the whole outdoor ceremony and drinks reception worked out so well.
All our guests spent the day complimenting the staff, noting how pleasant they all were. We actually have this lovely shot of them standing to the side enjoying our first dance, which really gives the place a personal and relaxed feeling. Throughout dinner and the evening I barely noticed there was any staff, yet everything was happening as we asked, without ever needing to be questioned on anything, the true sign of great service.
As you know the food was exceptional throughout the day. No one was left hungry and everyone has complimented us since on the interactive nature of the planquet's, which was a great suggestion on your end. Most also said they hadn't experienced that quality of food at a wedding before, which was really nice to hear.
We have thanked Orela every time we see her, but just to say it again, she was great. So friendly, welcoming and informed. All her advice was very helpful, and she really kept on top of us to get the things we needed to get done completed. It was great to see her on the day, with a big smile on her face after the ceremony. The fact she was so happy for us again gave it such a lovely personal touch. She genuinely cares that everyone has a great day, and it really shows.
So if we could sum up the whole day in a sentence, Ballinacura
