I couldn’t fault Lillibrooke at all, the wedding was the best day of our lives and it was more than we could have dreamed of! We had so many comments on how incredible the day was and especially the food, that was a real big hit!! The entire team were fantastic, and a special thanks to Vincent - he was outstanding, he really went the extra mile. He kept checking in and making sure we were okay, our guests were okay and that everything ran perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to be there on the day, he is truly a real credit to the team!!
