A brilliant day!!!
Thank you so much for what can only be described as a bloody brilliant day!!!

We were so happy with the full experience of having our wedding with you at Lauderdale House. From working with Kay to get everything into place, to Peters warm and calming energy on the day, to the inpecable timing and staffing of the food and evening activities. It has been such a pleasure and we are so happy with every element of the run up and the day!

Please pass on our thanks to David too - the pies and sticky toffee pudding were DELICIOUS!! and we have had a lot of comments on them.

A day we will never forget
Many thanks for looking after us at our wedding on June 29th. Seems like a long time ago already but it's a day we will never forget. You were really good with us prior to the ceremony and made us feel so much more relaxed so we were able to take it all in. And of course it was extremely hot, so we really appreciate your efforts.

The venue is beautiful
We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did for us leading up to yesterday. We had the most special day and are so grateful for your help. Everything with food, service, venue etc was perfect - we’ve sent messages to Kay and her team and Peter saying how wonderful they were.

The venue is beautiful and special, but having people like [Stuart], Kay, David, Peter involved makes the venue even more wonderful.

Perfectly arranged
Now that we have had the chance to rest after the wedding and take care of the last-standing guests, I wanted to say thank you for your help with our wedding. Your help was most precious and it was reassuring to have someone with experience to talk to when we planned it all.

Everything was perfectly arranged and went very smoothly - it wouldn’t have been possible without you! A big THANK YOU from both of us.

Best day of our lives!
I just want to say that this is the most worthy invoice I have ever paid in my life, you can quote me! Kay and her team were phenomenal, I’m still reeling from such a fantastic weekend, so I haven’t quite got around to thanking Kay personally, but everyone raved about the food, and the service was superb!! Every penny on that corkage was worth it. Thank you so so so much. We had the best day of our lives.

Please pass on my thanks to her and the others. Thanks also to Kay who helped me prepare for the event. It really couldn’t have gone any smoother.
