Mrs Ricketts

I am sorry this is such a belated ‘thank you’. I have now had time to absorb and reflect on the whole event. Every contact with the staff, in whatever capacity, was wonderful. You made my daughter’s wedding day something to remember. Your foresight, care and absolute consideration was truly marvellous – I absolutely mean that. You put us first in every regard. From someone serving champagne right through to the person in charge – World Class! Thank you! Mother of the Bride
