Dear Denise, Tara and all the team at the Town Hall. Thank you so much for making our wedding so perfect. You were so kind and accommodating, especially helping our nerves! We didn't feel rushed or like one of many weddings. You made us feel so special and at ease and we will always remember you as a special part of our wedding. Thank you for all your hard work and for being so lovely. Love Mr and Mrs Gaye.

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our ceremony very special indeed. You were always so helpful and professional. Lisa, you made sure Terry didn't marry Elizabeth & somehow, you managed to fit his name on the marriage certificate. We had a perfect day & such an intimate & personal ceremony. Thank you all!

David and Tara officiated at our wedding and I would like to pass on our massive thanks for helping making our day very special. David made the vows simple to follow at a time when nerves are kicking in, which made it much more enjoyable for Debbie and myself

We met with Cathryn on a couple of occasions and from our first meeting Cathryn was extremely helpful, pleasant and very reassuring. On the day of our wedding we were both very nervous but Cathryn again made us feel very relaxed, our ceremony was beautiful and very special to us and our guests
