"Amy we cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us on our day and beyond that! From start to finish you made everything so easy, even dressing Ali at one point haha! We are honestly the happiest couple and we had the most amazing wedding, every single member of staff were kind and helpful and made us feel extremely special. Everyone complimented the food saying how extraordinary it was, and we’ve even convinced Christina that she may need to go and stay at The Wild Boar with her two fluffy sausage dogs (the deal being she has to meet us there for a drink at least). Thanks again, we wouldn’t have had the day we did without you!"
