"Thank you for all your hard work; it was a perfect day. Your little touches really made it. Thank you so much.
(we will give you an ace review!) Now off to our honeymoon! Claire and Paul, September 2014

Claire and Paul, Bristol

Janice- Thank you so much for your hard work and your thoughtfulness. You have no idea how much we appreciate you; you are constantly the topic of conversation whenever people ask me about the wedding and we have nothing but kind words and high regards for you. We know that we could have gone in blindfolded and you would have put together a beautiful event. You deserve to win every award they could give you. Thank you again. Bailey and Garrett, Duns Castle, July 2014
