Good Evening Steve and Julie,

I'm sorry it's taken a while, but married life is busier than expected haha.

I just wanted to say, on behalf of my husband and me, what an amazing wedding day and evening we had. I never imagined it could run so smoothly and beautifully.

Having worked in events, I would like to add that you two especially are two of the genuinely nicest people I have met, and your welcoming and helpful approach really was 'the icing on the cake'

The venue and yourselves made such a lovely impression on my guests that they are still raving about the Square Tower and how they are finding any excuse to have an event there.

I'm so very glad the other venue we originally had fell through, as I would never come across the Square Tower.

You two truly helped in making my day memorable.

And I would love to say 'THANK YOU' from the bottom of our hearts. I will be recommending you to everyone I know.

I can not say thank you enough!

(if you are ever looking for new employees - of any kind, please keep me in mind)

Thank you again for our lovely day.

Kindest regards

Mr and Mrs L
