We want to say a massive thanks to you and the rest of the Weddings Team, especially Emma and Alex. The day went superbly and we really couldn’t have asked for anything more, it was so special. A truly emotional day for not only us, but also for my Step dad, who was so proud to walk me down the aisle at long last. It was the winter wedding we never got 10 years ago. Huge thanks also to Dean who saved the day with the table layout and helped us rearrange the table and seating a little bit, and also helped us with making sure the cd music played ok. Both the Scarborough and Northumbria rooms were so beautiful, very festive and only added to the magic of the day. The talented chefs and kitchen staff gave us stunning food and the delicious canapes were a huge hit with our guests.
All of our guests, some of which had never been to Lumley Castle, were enchanted with it, and fell in love with its unique quirkiness. I don’t think Lily has ever had so many “hello’s”.
Your recommended Friends of Lumley also did a fabulous job, Janet Glenwright who acted as our celebrant delivered an amazing service, so personal and very emotional. We couldn’t have imagined a better ceremony. Christine and Alan from Booms Florist created beautiful flowers exactly how I imagined them.
We feel extremely blessed that we had such an professional team working hard to create the perfect day for us, and at the head of that team was you Holly. You are so good at your job. Efficiency personified, and a 1000 thank-yous are not enough. From sorting out our precise accommodation requests, the perfect menu and drinks, my never ending calls and emails regarding trivial little details, and you did it all with a perfect blend of calm and reassurance.
As you may remember when we first met you, we said we have been visiting Lumley for the best part of 20 years and it is always our “No 1 go-to” place whenever we have a special occasion, birthday, anniversary, ... or even just a Wednesday!
So much so, we are coming to stay this Monday for 2 nights. We’ve had a tricky January what with one thing and another, and just need a little getaway, and Lumley feels like a home from home to us.
So again, please accept our heartfelt thanks for giving us such a memorable day, we will never forget it.
