Massive Thank You!
Joe and I would like to say a massive thank you to both of you for all your help and support, and patience, given throughout our wedding planning. You answered every request and offered support beyond what we could have imagined. Thank you for this, it made the planning process less stressful and more enjoyable. On the day of the wedding when I arrived at the NPC, I immediately felt welcomed. Caitlin was there to greet me and my dad and did so calmly and very positively. All of the wedding party commented on how welcome they felt and how smooth the day ran. It was well-planned and ran to the schedule decided by, both, me and joe.

I had my wedding here in March and I have to say Caitlin & the team were fantastic, from the early planning stages to delivering the most wonderful special day. All our guests had a brilliant time & the day was completely stress free, only complaint I have is that it went in far too fast!! Great staff, great venue special memories. xxx
