Emily & Eliot Say...
"Our wedding day was definitely the best day of our lives! We have nothing but praise for The Mowbray.
From the moment we got in touch, it was all really straightforward to organise. Lucy was so accommodating and quick to respond to our emails.
On the day, the staff were super friendly and attentive - many of our guests commented on how lovely everyone was! Georgina made sure that everything ran smoothly, leaving us to enjoy the party!
Although we actually booked the venue before we’d tried the food, attending a supper club event confirmed we’d made the right choice. Our guests were absolutely blown away by the food and many told us it was the best wedding food they’d ever eaten. We would agree, although we still can’t agree on our favourite dish from the day!
The room looked stunning and had been coordinated perfectly with our colour scheme. All the little details were perfect - from the flowers on the table, to the beautiful presentation of the arrival drinks, not to mention the hearty mugs of tea and coffee after dinner!
Everything was perfect and we can’t thank you enough!"
