a big thank you
Hello Tiffany I just wanted to send (albeit rather belated) a big thank to you and all the staff for making our wedding day so very special. We all had such a great day and it was thanks to you for taking care of all the details and ensuring it all ran smoothly. For the muzzles, it was so pleasant not being able to see those on display so if it were you that took care of that, thank you so much for that as, for me, it could well have spoilt the day. All the very best for the new year and wishing you every success at The Castle. Michael & Louise Marsh

food was amazing!
Hi Tiffany I just wanted to thank you for yesterday, everything went so smoothly and everyone had a wonderful time. I have not spoken to one guest that didn't comment about the food being amazing, and the staff (especially the lovely girls behind the bar) could not have been more friendly and helpful. Yesterday was quite simply the best day of our lives, and I can't thank you enough for making it happen. Thank you Maria
