From planning to the day...
From the planning process to the day itself we could not have wished for a better customer service. Nothing was too much trouble and you were so flexible to our wish list. I hope the highest compliment we can offer is that we had to think of nothing the whole day, everything was so seamlessly organised around us, a credit to your management and team. Once again, thank you all so much Rachel & Mike
