Dear Chris, Gillie and the fabulous Belmount team,
Apologies for the delay in sending this note to you. Steve and I are literally just settling back into reality 5 weeks after our wonderful wedding at Belmount Hall in July.
We wanted to get back in touch to say a big ‘thank you’ to you all for helping to make our wedding day such a beautiful, memorable occasion.
You are both so clearly devoted and passionate about your business and the house and grounds and this was clear to us in the run up to our wedding. Chris – your meticulous attention to detail combined with your willingness to support, advise and answer the many questions that come up when planning a wedding was priceless – this was especially important to us as we were organising our wedding at a venue over 200 miles from home. Gillie – endlessly busy but always on hand to offer help with a smile and an enthusiasm for each wedding that is held at Belmount – not to mention her famously delicious food.
Then there is your front of house team who were friendly, hard working and a really key part in making our day run so smoothly. Here we clearly have to single out Gwyn – one of the hardest working women we have ever met and a credit to the Belmount team. Throughout the setting up on the previous day to the final preparations the morning of the wedding, right through to the evening, Gwyn was there, ensuring every detail of our day was put in place, running smoothly and exactly as we had hoped and planned. Thank you Gwyn!
We had an amazing day – better than we had ever imagined. Many of our guests have told us what a fantastic day they had and what a great venue Belmount is – most of them complimenting the food and especially the pudding! We have barely stopped talking about the day, recalling the special moments and memories that we now have and will cherish forever. You enabled us to make our dream day a reality and you made our family and friends feel at home, in your beautiful home. I only wish we could do it all again!
Back to reality now and enjoying looking back at the photos that were perfectly captured by Steven Barber – attached are some favourites!
