Huge thank you
Luke and I just wanted to say a massive huge thank you to you and everyone at the Hop Farm for Saturday. We had the most amazing day and I don’t think I’ll ever feel quite that special again! I also wanted to say a huge thank you to both Danni and Josh. We had a situation with the taxi that took my parents back that nearly caused an accident and hurt my parents (mum's knee is bruised and dads already injured shoulder had worsened but they are ok) due to his speeding in the bad weather conditions. Josh saved the day and took us back to our hotel and we are really grateful to him for stepping in." Luke & Elaine

Thank you
"Thank you will never be enough to express how grateful we are for how much work you all put in to make our wedding day(s) go perfectly. Ever since the first meeting we have had complete faith in you all - and Danni in particular handled the many meetings (with the whole family) like a pro. Thank you all so much, the weekend will be something our friends, family and us will never forget." Swapnil & Lauren

Fabulous
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything that you both did for us on our wedding on Saturday 17th June 2017. From the moment we met you, and started the initial discussions, we knew that we were in very safe hands. You both helped remove the stress of organising the day and helped right the way through to the final detail. The venue itself, from the gazebo, to where the wedding breakfast was held through to downstairs in the evening was absolutely stunning! There are no other words for it. Everyone and I mean everyone was so complimentary about the food - It was excellent and exceeded our expectations. So much so, that Sandor keeps banging on about the toffee and honeycomb cheesecake!!! Please ask the chef to send me the recipe if only for piece and quiet! You two are truly the stars of the show and we thank you both so much, from the bottom of our hearts. You helped us to have a most magical, memorable day that will stay with us and our friends and family forever! Thank you again" Donna & Sandor

Star Wars Wedding
We want to thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts for the fabulous day you gave Jacqueline and Andy on May 4th. We hoped the day would be special due to it being a themed day, but everyone joined in and it was fantastic. Your attention to detail, food, the venue, even the surprise of the shire horse being offered for a photo by the stable girls. It would have been Jacqueline’s great grandmothers birthday - also her great grandfather used to be a dray man, and his horses were shires! We hope you don’t forget that ‘Star Wars’ wedding, as we will remember it forever and the brilliant service we were given". Jacqueline + Andrew Lyle, Ellen + Frank Gould
