What our customers say

Dear Ida, Bridget, Anton, Dan and all your wonderful staff I simply had to write to pass on our heartfelt thanks. Our requests from overseas were many and varied, but mostly we wanted to create a wonderful, stress-free day, for ourselves and our guests. You all, together, made our day more than perfect. Our expectations were more than exceeded – and we will never forget it. Your assistance with planning; not only the reception and accommodation at the Duke, but also the flowers, the makeup, the hair stylist, the photographer, the baby-sitter, and even the brunch the following day, made everything so uncomplicated. Our guests were thrilled with the venue, the wedding as a whole, and most prominent were the comments on the quality of the food. Each member of your staff were helpful, friendly and completely willing to assist us in all ways, without hesitation. We simply can’t thank you enough for such a memorable few days at The Duke. We shall return, and probably with most of our guests.

- Maarea & Tim Sollart,
