“On behalf of my wife and I (how lovely that
now sounds!) we wanted to thank you for the amazing organisation
and planning of our recent wedding at the RWCMD on Saturday 7th
This was managed by all your staff particularly Bethan, Laura and
Rob with quiet background pleasant efficiency, but with the
knowledge that one of them was only ever a beckon away!
Both venues looked lovely all dressed up and showed off to their
full glory, we were particularly pleased with the fairy lights
which added greatly to the occasion.
The food was outstanding and special thanks to Allyson and Nicholas
for the organisation, planning and cooking of that. The colourful
presentation and taste of the food was commented on by all who
attended the day, and the evening food was equally tasty and eye
catching, there was also enough available for all our guests which
we were delighted about.
Once again many thanks to you all. Kind Regards”
David and Liz

Janet the first time that you would be a great person to work with,
and coupled with a fantastic venue and a great team across the
board, we couldn’t have had a better
