“Thank you doesn’t feel enough! We had the most wonderfully stupendous day and evening yesterday and it was all because of the fantastic efforts or everybody in your team. All night people were telling me it was the best venue and most fantastic place – thank you! Eastnor Castle is one of the most spectacular places I’ve ever been to and while I might be a bit biased, it was also the best wedding I’ve ever been to; a sentiment repeated by most of our guests.”
