"I hope you are well. Sorry I haven’t been in touch earlier. It’s been a month now since our wedding in Formby Hall and a couple of weeks since we got back from our honeymoon (tan has gone already). On behalf of myself and Mrs Thompson I would just like to say a huge big thank you for all of your hard work in helping to make our wedding day so special. Right from the first time we met you (without an appointment I might add) you have made the planning of our wedding so easy. Nothing was too much bother for you. You always replied to our correspondence quickly and efficiently. Whenever we came up to Formby Hall you always gave us a warm welcome and made us feel calm and assured during our planning meetings. Your assistance was invaluable and you are a real credit to Formby Hall. Also please pass on a big thankyou on behalf of myself, my wife and all of our friends and family to the staff at Formby Hall. To Dean, Anne (who couldn’t do enough for us on the day) the chef and all of the support staff who were involved in making our special day just that little bit more special. We were really lucky with the weather and we have just got the photographs back off Gav. I will send you a couple!

We will try to pop up before Xmas and see you. I know Maureen still needs to pick up her candle.

Many Thanks again and please feel free to forward this email onto your managers. Yourself and the staff deserve high praise indeed"


"Thank you, Kris and I had a perfect day and it couldn't have gone any better for us. Thanks for all your help in the build up as you ensured we had everything covered and kept us on track.

The staff on the day were great and couldn't have done anymore, could you pass on our thanks to them.

We've had some amazing feedback from our guests about the venue and food and the day itself.

We're currently in NYC and head to Vegas later in the week and then it's back to reality.

Thanks again, and we will definitely be regular visitors."
Mr and Mrs Allinson


"We both just wanted today a huge thank you for everything everyone done for our wedding day. We could not fault one single thing! I do want to make a special mention for Dean, he was outstanding!! Nothing was a problem....a true credit to formby hall!
Many thanks"


"What can I say! — I can't thank you enough for everything and the staff at formby hall were amazing all day!

Without formby hall staff I wouldn't have been so chilled all day! Honestly the day was magical! Thank you xxx"

"Our day was fantastic, all we could have asked for and more!
We are over the moon with everything and all our guests loved the day from start to finish.

Me, Gemma and Jaxon would just like to say a huge thank you for all your help! You have been amazing.

Hope we weren’t to much bother haha, Thanks again!"


"Thank you for your email. Our day was lovely thank you. Dean was fantastic on the day and couldnt do enough for us. The food was perfect, the room was stunning and the day ran really smoothly.

One little tiny critique just to perhaps consider in the future - or we may have just been unlucky. After the food a few of the tables, primarily the top table wandered to see other guests, every empty table was totally cleared of all drinks we lost our toast drinks and several bottles of wine - this was a little disappointing.

Please dont think im being negative i just wanted to let you know.

Not to deter from the amazing day we had and the effort made by you and your team to ensure the day was perfect - even the sun was out.

Special thanks to obviously your self and Dean but 3 people stood out to us - Tracy on reception - what an asset to formby hall all the way through she was so helpful and accommodating to us.

Kath the lady on the bar downstairs who helped me with my hair disaster and the gentleman on the bar i cant remember is name but was from the cocktail bar downstairs seriously good service.

Thank you again for all your hard work over the last year. Its truly appreciated. Kindest regards"
Vicki and Dan
