Liam & Jade wedding
1. Claire and Sharika, were absolute stars! I couldn’t have asked for better people to liaise with 2. The bed in our room was extremely comfy and we both had a good nights sleep 3. The guy who was the ops manager in the evening (Baldish bloke, I think he wore glasses) was absolutely delightful and made sure all our wedding items were stored safely after the event 4. The rooms turn arounds went off without a hitch, really quick and efficient 5. The food was very good, all the guests complimented how nice the food was 6. Bringing out the food was well timed too, we didn’t have one table having their main while another were only just getting their starter. It all came out together. 7. Jade dad had to bring his dog to the wedding and the staff allowed him to check in early so the dog didn’t have to stay in the car during the ceremony

The wedding day was amazing, really well organised from the red carpet arrival to the drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening do. The staff were helpful and polite. Apologies but I can't remember the name of the gentleman who did all the announcements but he was very professional and friendly. Please pass on our thanks to the whole team. Mr and Mrs Fort!!
