Nothing was too much trouble!
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for being so amazing on Saturday. We couldn't have asked for any more and the day was faultless, everything was how I imagined it and more and I couldn't get over how beautiful the room was. I have had so many people praise you all and the waiters too. Nothing was too much trouble. I'd like to also say thank you to Dan as he was brilliant.
