  • Dan and Daisy, August 2018

    Sarah at St. Donat’s was an absolute star throughout the whole planning process; organising visits, answering all (the many!) questions we had and providing very thorough and helpful information at relevant points. Having Sarah on board helped to put us at ease throughout and made us feel like everything was being well handled. Zoe stepped in to help with the running of the day itself and she was fully up to speed when we met her a couple of days before. Zoe was highly efficient and switched on during the wedding day and it was brilliant to have someone running the show!

  • Kerry and Steve, August 2018

    Sabrina Crossley was a very calming and kind presence on our Wedding day, the team were very flexible and she and Stephen (T&C) worked really well together to make the day feel relaxed as I was confident they had everything in hand.

  • . Ellen and Ben, September 2018

    I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all for helping to give us the most perfect wedding day ever! It really was the best day ever and we were so happy from start to finish. Thank you all so much! We have just come back from a lovely honeymoon and have post wedding blues but have lots of photos to remember the day. I can’t believe how lucky we were with the weather too. Everything was just wonderful.
