Dear Ida, Bridget and all the team at the Duke, We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our wedding at the Duke in December. You exceeded our expectations and all our guests have raved about the food, setting, accommodation and staff. We are so grateful for all the effort you put into our special day. Thank-you also for the gifts that were waiting for us in our room on our wedding night. We will be back at the Duke many more times!!
