  • The Delighted Couple - February 2020

    From the start we have been treated to the very best service, nothing was too much trouble.

    All the small gestures from having the crusts cut from the flower girls ham sandwich to the last minute cream tea for the bridal party. To the larger issues of having unexpected accommodation requirements for several family members. These and many more items were dealt with grace and kindness. This resulted in providing us with one of the most memorable days of our lives.

    The day was magical. Thank you.

    I would like to thank all the staff but particularly Rob, the night chap, who was amazingly kind and professional, what a gem!

  • The Happy Couple - January 2020

    Annie and the team at No1 Abbey Row were fantastic throughout the whole wedding experience, from the planning stages right through to the main day and even afterwards. No question or query seemed too much and all our suggestions were listened to and accommodated - were not possible, alternatives were suggested. There was always a friendly person on-hand to help us out and everyone made sure the day went perfectly for us. Both the staff and venue come highly recommended from us.
