We would just like to say thank you and how very grateful we were for the time you spent with us planning the day. The advice on how to make sure the day flowed and that we had enough time to put in all our personal touches helped to focus our minds and gave us confidence our plans would be achieved.
The day itself was how we hoped, the food was delicious with many of our guests commenting on how they enjoyed their meal, it was served quickly and efficiently by the serving staff.
We are so pleased we chose The Arlington for our wedding and would recommend it to anyone wishing to hire a beautiful and stylish venue which is efficiently managed and staffed.
Thank you all once again for all your help, advice and professionalism and we hope to visit you again for future events.
