Everything was so immaculate!
Me, Martin, our parents, our families & friends were in utter awe, amazement and joy at what a superb day you laid on for us. Everything was so immaculate, everyone was so friendly, courteous and all of you couldn't do enough for us. Me & Martin were personally so touched by the help, support, kindness and smiles you brought to every step of our Wedding. It exceeded all of our expectations and that of our family and friends. It is a real moment on our lives we will look back on with such endearment, love and joy. Me and Martin sat up at 2am after it had finished and you know...there was not one thing we could tweak, be critical over, or anything. We were so lucky to have our Big day in such amazing hands and we just wanted to thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for all your energy, time, support, fun and joy. From everyone in our wedding party. Please pass on our most sincere love, we are so proud to have used your amazing services, personalities and venue.
