We often receive letters of thanks from the couples who get married here and we treasure them all. We were delighted that Mrs M, mother of a bride who got married at Combe Manor in August this year, has graciously allowed us to print her particularly lovely letter to us, and to share their memories on our website:
“I just wanted to write and say how happy we were that we were able to hold F and C’s wedding in the beautiful surroundings of Combe Manor. From the very first moment we saw the place, we fell in love with it – and you, David, were the icing on the cake! We were instantly charmed by your good humour.. and your tips and advice during the last few months have been invaluable.
It was one of those magical days when everything flows seamlessly and happily from one scene to the next. From getting ready in the lovely guest room, to having the service in beautiful St Swithun’s (though how we – no, you – managed to seat 134 I shall never understand!), to having a drinks reception overlooking the glorious countryside, to dining and dancing in the stunning barns, and then sitting out in the courtyard in the balmy evening til we reluctantly had to leave – it was all just perfect. Indeed, C tells me that on their car journey back to London on the following day, F kept succumbing to tears and all she could say was, “I’m not sad, it’s just because it was the most perfect day!” There can be no finer tribute!
Many, many thanks and I do hope we shall meet again.”
