You and all your team were just so excellent.
Hi Gabby, Just a little message to say thank you! You were an absolute superstar on Saturday. Many people have commented how efficient you were, yet discreet with it! You made our day run smoothly and I cannot thank you enough. Given the wedding season for you all has been super busy and you’re all probably ready for a break, you still made our day feel special and personal, nothing was too much. You and all your team were just so excellent. It’s rare you go to a wedding with such attentive waiting staff. I want to thank every single member of the team! You really made our day wonderful. Everyone is still talking about how plentiful and yummy the food was. You can tell you use high quality ingredients and a talented cheffing team! The pear and ginger upside down cake was a personal highlight! Do you make that yourselves or buy it? I need that recipe or where to buy it from in my life!! I just cannot thank you enough. You are so good at what you do! Calm, confident and kind! Love Hannah x

We're so glad we found Priston Mill
Dear Clara, Gabby, Chris and the Priston Mill Team, I know that my mum has emailed you already but Greg and I also wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for everything you did to enable us to have a wedding that far exceeded our expectations and was a dream to organise - even in a shorter than usual time frame. You were all so helpful and friendly in the pre-wedding stages. The food was delicious and we're grateful for the kitchen's flexibility with the menus. Gabby and the team were absolutely brilliant on the day, which meant that we felt totally relaxed and were able to enjoy the event. We also loved the watermill and the gardens and the park was a huge hit with our friends and family. We're so glad we found Priston Mill and are only sorry that it's all over! Thank you again and we hope the rest of the season goes well for you :) Best wishes, Nadia & Greg

You (and your staff) were simply outstanding!
Good Morning Gabby, Thank you SO much for everything you did for us on our wedding day!! You have been an absolute star throughout the final stages of our wedding planning. We had such confidence in you just from emailing, but when we met you the day before the wedding, we knew we were in the best hands. We had the most amazing day and your endless hard work throughout the entire wedding made this happen. You (and your staff) were simply outstanding! Your smiley, calm and professional approach to your job is a real asset to Priston Mill and we couldn’t have wished for anything more from you, a truly fantastic Event Manager!!! The venue looked amazing and exactly as we had pictured it, our decorations were set up perfectly, we really appreciate your efforts in the morning! A big thanks also for sorting the cake when it eventually arrived. We had no idea it was being set up, but when we did see it, we were so impressed it had just happened with no interruption to our day. Thank you once again!! Ed & Lauren - Mr & Mrs Grace (20.08.2021)
