"Thank you so much for making our wedding so magical and the perfect day we envisaged. You were all so accommodating to our requests throughout and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue. The feedback we've had about the venue itself and all the staff has been overwhelmingly positive. Thanks a million" - Tammy and Nick
