Peter, Father of the Bride

As the Father of the Bride I would like to thank the management and staff for everything you all did to make the Wedding of Mike and Laure West on Thursday 26th October 2017 such a success. Lauren and Mike really enjoyed their day and so did the guests many of whom have commented on the high standards shown by the venue and its staff. 

Please pass on our thanks and good wishes to everyone who contributed to the day from the catering, housekeeper and grounds staff and to any group I may have missed.

The grounds, accommodation, food and the service were excellent and the whole day went very smoothly and unobtrusively becuase of the good natured efficiency of everyone concerned. 

I’d particulary like to single out our Wedding Manager who was superb. She was with us the night before, throughout the day itself late into the night and was still there to see us off in the morning. She certainyl has stamina! She was helpful, calm and helped to lighten the mood when natural wedding nerves set in and was a constant link throughout the wedding.

Thank you to all of the staff – you helped to make it a great day for all of us.
