Overall a wonderful day
Natasha Eden who was our last coordinator was excellent she made us feel very reassured after all the initial mess ups and was very contactable and answered many of my random emails. She definitely knows her stuff and made us feel at ease. I feel really bad as I cannot remember the gentlemans name but the guy who ran our wedding on the day was amazing, he was very friendly and helpful he was still smiling at 1am and that we were the cleanest wedding. The guest relation manager (I believe Andrew) was amazing too as HMU breakfast got delivered an hour later than it was meant to, he delivered it himself and apologized for the delay. The guests even commented on the food and said how yummy it was so please pass on thanks to the Chef. The waiting staff were also very good.
