Wedding: October
October 2018 was the best wedding I have experienced...
Hello there Julia. Just a quick note to say a big thank you for your organisation and management of the wedding of my daughter, Joanna, to Rob last Saturday. The whole day was an absolute pleasure and everything went to plan, due in no small part to your organisation. I was amazed at how everything went like clockwork with no perceivable hitches. I know that I am biased but it was the best wedding that I have experienced. All of the guests that I spoke with echoed my sentiments and thoroughly enjoyed the event. I would be so very grateful if you will pass on my thanks to the catering and serving staff, all of whom did us proud. The food was superb, cooked to perfection and the maitre d’hotel and his staff were seamless in their service. The florist, cake maker, photographers, videographer and all other people providing a service on the day did a first class job. I am truly a proud father and so grateful for you all making the day for Joanna, Rob and all the families and friends. Thank you once again. Steve.
