Don’t just take our word for it

"The day was wonderful and the ceremony at the Temple was beyond words.  I should like to say a huge thank you to the caretaker, Ian.  He was so helpful both before the ceremony, and in the days afterwards when I called to collect some things that had been left.  We had a couple of hiccoughs along the way, (caused by the closure of roads around the rugby stadium), but this all contributed to making the day memorable. 

Would you please pass on Laura, Matthew's and my thanks to the young man who looked after the bar and to Ian - who helped to make the day very special. 

With many thanks"
