Thank you again for helping to plan a fantastic birthday surprise for my husband's 50th birthday. From the initial enquiry to the planning stages when I looked at several options for the custom agenda, through to the actual day itself, you were a pleasure to work with. You were always patient, responsive and professional and offered exceptional service, and more importantly for me, peace of mind.
