What our customers say
Thank you so much for making Claire and Malcolm's wedding day so memorable and special. We were so lucky with the weather and the Duke was everything we had hoped for. There were many compliments about the venue, the food and the accommodation. As the parents it was great to know we didn't have to worry about a thing at the reception and really enjoyed it ourselves. Please pass our thanks onto all the others involved on the night.
