we couldnt have wished for a better day
To Mark & Staff Thank you very much for all you did to make our wedding day so perfect. The venue is just beautiful. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, and a special thank you to the man who kept me (Liz) hydrated under my many layers in the heat! We couldn't have wished for a better day, I just wish we could do it all again. We are glad to see the arch & letters on Instagram, they look great in the woods. We are now looking forward to our honeymoon in Mauritius! love from Iain & Liz
