Thank you
We both wanted to say thank you to you and your team for making the day run so well and really take some of the stress out of it all. Since meeting you we knew everything was in very safe hands and could see on the day our intuitions were correct. All of our guests kept coming back and commenting to us about how good the food was and many preferred the BBQ to a standard 3 course wedding breakfast. Please pass on our thanks to the chef and his team as the food really was amazing.

'I am still on cloud 9'
First of all we would like to say a HUGE big thank you for making our wedding day so very special. Like many couples I am sure we are not alone in saying it was the most magical and spectacular day of our lives. In fact it was the happiest day of my life. I am still on cloud 9 and it has almost been a whole week!!! And I know Becky feels the same. We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for making our day so special. Without your amazing organisational skills, your cool and calm aura and your ability to make the whole day run smoothly, it would not have been so sublime. A million thank you's will never ever be enough. In the space of the past week we have had so many people say the food, drink, venue and staff were wonderful. So hats off to all you guys. You should be proud of yourselves!
