"Lotte and I wanted to say a very big thank you for all your personal efforts which made our stay and the wedding at The Oakley Court a complete success and great fun. We cannot express how grateful we are for your advice and support, and the professional service you provided. We really appreciate your input into the planning of the big day. It could not have gone smoother and your handover for the reception was seamless. The reception went without a hitch and the food was really good and very professionally served. The service was well organised and we have received lovely feedback from the guests about the food, including those with special dietary needs, and the great service during the meal.”
