We were so lucky to have you guiding us
"I just wanted to thank you so much for all the help you gave us organising Laura and Dan’s wedding – we were so lucky to have you guiding us. I would also like to thank you for the added decoration touches. I was so pleased with the overall effect when I first walked into the hall- it was perfect. In fact the whole day was fantastic from the decorations, to the food and organisation and the brilliant service!
