All went very smoothly
Thank you so much for everything you did for us for yesterday’s gathering, particularly for looking after our precious paintings so well. It all went very smoothly and that’s because you were at the helm. It was wonderful to have so much done for us, and just as importantly, know that we could rely on you to do it, and well. We really appreciated the fact that you went along with anything we requested and made it happen, it was also good to have your very expert advice.

Perfect venue for such an occasion
Dear Hannah, I am writing to thank you for organising so beautifully the reception. The Lowry Room looked amazing and the food was marvellous. So many guests commented on it being the most perfect venue for such an occasion. Please could you also pass on my thanks to Theresa who along with others served the food. Many, many thanks,

All of our guests were astonished at the venue
We are so grateful for the wonderful time we had with you at the school! Your organisation made it run like clockwork, so we were both able to enjoy the occasion with little strain. All of our guests were astonished at the venue itself. Your help with the posies and balloons, and the slide show was wonderful, and so many commented on that, too. We have had many thanks sent in also about the amazing food and drink, all beautifully prepared, displayed and served. And your patience and help with the late arrivals and less able was so appreciated, too. Please convey our warmest thanks to all the staff who helped you: unfailingly and unobstrusively helpful, effective and polite! We spent the whole evening still enjoying the day, looking back on a memorable time marking our memorable anniversary! We'll never forget the day, thanks to you all!

Everything perfect
Using the Chapel to get married in was an amazing experience, it is such a beautiful building and a friend was able to play the grand piano there as part of the service. We had our reception in Skinners library which was the perfect setting and the food first class. Service was excellent with everything catered for. Thankyou Tonbridge School !
