  • To Annette, Matt, lucy, Emily, Phil and all the staff at the lion,
    We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for all your hard work at our wedding on the 16th July. You were absolutely amazing in helping us to organise the whole day. Nobody would have guessed that this was your first ever wedding you ran it so smoothly starting with the wedding ceremony in the restaurant which looked wonderful then into the back with the two marquees decorated by yourselves, the attention to detail with all the flowers and decorations were superb. You took everything into your own hands asking us what we wanted and then proceeded to turn it into something amazing. We had the carvery for the wedding breakfast which as always was so tender and delicious and the into the evening you laid out a buffet like I have never seen with everything you could think of in it and of course the chocolate fountains which we knew would go down well the kids but it seemed there were more adults eating it than kids. Everybody I have spoke to thought the food and settings were amazing. We would also like to thank you for advising us with the flowers, decorations, food and how to proceed throughout the day. You are all absolutely amazing and we would never have had such a fabulous day if it wasn’t for all your hard work and effort, there was nothing that you wouldn’t do to help us achieve a fantastic day and a great party in the evening. Anybody who books a wedding with you in the future will be lucky to have you looking after them for the day you are all such wonderful people with hearts of gold.
    With all our love Martin and Carrie-Anne xxx
