Exactly what they dreamed
Hi Caroline, We just wanted to say a big thank you for all the hard work you and your team put in to make Z and Ms' wedding a real success, they said they had an amazing time and they thought it couldn't have gone any better, it was exactly what they dreamed it would be and better. Thank you so much for making everywhere look so beautiful and for coordinating everything so that the day ran smoothly, you did a great job. We really appreciated how friendly all the staff were at the hotel, lots of the guests commented on this as it added to the lovely atmosphere. Thanks also to those that worked hard on the food it tasted delicious and was so beautifully presented. We also really enjoyed staying at the hotel and having breakfast with our friend and family in the morning. So, again thanks so much for everything, we will definitely recommend 'The Birch' to our friends as we had such an enjoyable weekend.
