Wedding at the Assembly Rooms

Thank you to you both. Chris and I had an absolutely amazing day. The church had been candle lit by my friends and the congregation each held a lit candle aka a pop concert… it looked completely magical.

The evening went perfectly too. The tea room looked so beautiful, the various team members had done is proud, Otto was great and lots of people commented on the high standard of food. Brilliant.

Thank you so much, everything was perfect and the staff on the day were just so helpful and great – especially Felix! I wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help – you really made things easy. Also special thanks to Felix, who was fantastic on the night! One small example: we realised there was no Campari at the bar, Felix said he’d sort it out, and 15 mins later a bottle of Campari shows up! Please could you pass on our thanks.

Charlotte, Debs, Louise and team,

The biggest of THANK YOU’s.

Back to work today after our trip to Croatia and think it is all finally sinking in ………

I know I may have already said this before, but the 9th June was totally and utterly the best day of our lives. We have had SO many comments from friends and family about the amazing venues, FOOD, staff, how slick the operation was and basically what a fantastic day was had by all! You are all such a lovely bunch – we feel so lucky that our wedding experience was barely stressful, worrying or complicated at any time!!! You all made it so easy for us.

Thank you again for EVERYTHING you, your previous colleagues and the venue team did for us, from Otto and Felix on the day, to the chefs who helped make up the cake to the evening staff who were so great in setting up the decorations, will recommend to anyone I know!! We couldn’t have hoped for anything more!!

Hope everything well with you all and wish you well with your lives and careers making many more couples and people happy through events and weddings in the future,

Laura & Dan xx
