Katie L, 1 year ago

Stephen was a saviour, stepped in just 4 days before the wedding due to a last minute cancellation. He called and messaged to confirm everything. He created the perfect summer atmosphere while our guests were served welcome drinks and canapés on the hotel lawns. Can’t thank you enough, set our day off to a fabulous start!
