I cannot tell you how impressed our guests were
I just wanted to add my thanks to you and your team for creating such a magnificent evening for us on Sunday. I cannot tell you how impressed our guests - from all over the world - were by you and your staff. The venue looked stunning and the smooth-running of the occasion was much appreciated by one and all. Rachel and Richard had the perfect evening - celebrating with family and friends in such style. I loved all the food, and we have had so many compliments from our guests about it - the first course and the desserts, in particular. The staff served it all with such efficiency and style - this did not go unnoticed and was commented on by many people. Do please pass on our thanks to the whole team - chefs and servicing staff. Your personal input was extraordinary and very much appreciated. You exuded professional calmness and orchestrated the whole function with such expertise - for which, many, many thanks.
