Hi Ann and all the team at Notley Abbey, I finally had all the wedding photos so thought it was a good opportunity to write and thank you for all of your support - and share some pictures! We had the most fantastic day - the pictures capture all of the joy, it was overflowing all day, everyone had the best time. From the moment I arrived in the morning, Lisa was fabulous, put me at ease, and looked after me so well. She was amazingly thoughtful, dealt with a slight lunch hiccup very professionally (my guests fault!), and generally steered us all like the captain of a slightly chaotic ship. She also put my boys at ease and gave us some training on how to walk down the aisle - it was all very much appreciated! The staff were incredible all day actually. Kerry was also great when she took over. All of the staff are so friendly, professional and so happy and genuine too. It really made the day extra special. Many of the guests commented on it as well. A special thanks to Ann, for putting up with all of my emails, and calmly pointing me in the right direction with the planner. It all felt so easy. The food tasting day was the best!! As I couldn’t actually eat at the wedding, I was glad I had had the opportunity to eat the delicious food. Thanks again!
