I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance,
A church filled with family and friends.
I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for,
He said one that would make me his wife.

"What our guests say"

After a year planning my daughter’s wedding while she was in London it all eventually happened on the 10th January. I cannot tell you how delighted my husband and I were with the absolutely amazing service we received
from your staff. As there were approximately 28 Australians and a couple of Kiwis and Pommies coming over to attend the wedding you can imagine what a mammoth task it was arranging all the accommodation etc, besides trying to ensure that the wedding went off without a hitch. I know I made tons of calls to your staff with various queries and I always received efficient and friendly help. read more
