"Hello! I just wanted to email and say a massive thank you to you both and all the staff who made our wedding amazing! We honestly had the most perfect day and we cannot thank you enough for everything. The staff were amazing, especially Christina who was simply fabulous. She was great with everyone especially the children who loved her! She made sure everything was perfect and it was! She is a credit to the hotel. The food was also great and everyone felt looked after.

Thank you both Ellie and Alex for all the help and support you have given us. I know I have sent you so so many emails but you have both been wonderful! Thank you also to Ellie for making the ballroom and Waterford room look perfect. It was everything we hoped it would be. Everyone thought it looked gorgeous! You are both fantastic, we couldn't have done it without you both.

We can't believe it is all over but we wouldn't change a thing! We cannot wait to see our wedding photos now! But honestly thank you so much for everything.

We hope you have an amazing Christmas and new year!"

"I just wanted to say such a huge thank you to you and your team for making our day so bloody amazing!

I can't begin to explain to you how tough it was planning this from overseas...but I didn't have a single second of stress that day as i knew you had it all in hand.

The food was incredible - pleas let your chef know this. I've been to wedding's before and have had others tell me that usually the food isn't that good in the grand scheme...this was exceptional and i enjoyed every mouthful - i know Luke did too!

You also have a such a fantastic space to work with that really we didn't need to do all that much in the way of decoration and that certainly made things easier. Your entire team we accommodating and really genuinely nice. Thank you again so much. We had a fantastic day! All the best."
