WOW! What a wonderful wedding you all produced. Thank all so much for your hard work. We could not fault the day in any way. 

Everything ran really smoothly and seamlessly thanks to you Laura working quietly in the background and your amazing team. Everyone thought the service was exemplary. The afternoon tea was delightful and delicious, thank you so much for producing it in such an interesting way. The evening meal was cooked to perfection. The tables looked fantastic.The service was superb. We all had a truly memorable day and it was thanks to all of you and your excellent organisation.

We shall not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who asks, as several people in our village were unaware that the museum organised weddings.

Please pass our thanks on to everyone who was  involved in making the day so special. -  May 2013
