Making our wedding even more perfect than we could
Hi Olivia and Adam We would just like to say the biggest thank you to both of you for making our wedding even more perfect than we could have imagined! You were both amazing and played such a big part in our day, we’re so glad we had you both there! The day was absolutely perfect and the work and effort you put it means so much to us! From the beautiful table for our ceremony to the complete lack of love hearts for our drinks reception, there were so many little details that you both made sure were perfect! The way Olivia dealt with the photo booth issue so smoothly and got it sorted so quickly was amazing. And Adam I have the cutest photo of you helping our daughter with her shoes (I’ll attach it) You both took the stress and worry out of every aspect and we’re so so grateful! We really appreciate every thing you did so much, and so many of our guests commented on what an amazing job you did. You two make the most amazing team, anyone who has you coordinating their wedding are very lucky! So thank you both so much! From Mr & Mrs Eayrs

Carisbrooke room looked absolutely stunning!
Hi Olivia Many thanks for your email. We’re delighted that Ash and Lauren enjoyed the event. We had a ball and the feedback we’ve had from our guests is all positive. Julia and Ollie, who are vegans, were very impressed with the food that was provided - they’ve had some interesting experiences in the past! A big thank you to you and the rest of the team for their hard work and attention to detail. The Carisbrooke room looked absolutely stunning! We’re very much looking forward to returning to the Solent Hotel. Kind regards, Dee and Richard
