What our customers say
Thank you so much to you and all the team at the Duke. Our wedding was the absolute best day of our lives. It all went without a glitch and we loved every minute. All of our guests commented on how wonderful it all was, the food, staff, location, and how smooth everything went! Everyone loved it. We felt so special, and everything was so personal. We really appreciated all the little touches too - the card, bubbles and tshirts in our room after were so sweet! I really can't believe how quick it went. We want to do it all over again and again! Thank you so much for all of your help, you are wonderful and really brought it all together. You and Ellie gave us such peace of mind and it wouldn't have been the same otherwise. It was the best day of our lives. We can't wait to come back soon! Thanks again! Jess & Ryan 4th November 2017
