Rebecca & James October 2021
Honestly I can not thank everyone at Lillibrooke enough for the prep morning and everything they did on our wedding day. Nichole was incredible and made sure myself and James and our guests were well looked after throughout the whole day. The food was absolutely outstanding and everyone said how stunning the venue was.
