"A quick note to say thanks for the great service you and all your team at Vale Royal Abbey provided for our daughter Rebecca’s wedding. We have had lots of rave reviews about how nice the day was ad how superb the venue is. Considering we landed on you between Christmas and New Year, only six months ago, and with the difficulties of organising a wedding with the bride and groom in Abu Dhabi I think we all did a great job in pulling off a unique occasion. Please pass on our sincere thanks to the chef and his team and the other attendant staff who worked together provide us with a wedding we will remember forever."
