Mr & Mrs Brankin (parents of the Groom), August 2013
We would just like to say a massive thank you to all the staff at Rufflets who participated in any way in Gary and Sarah's wedding. The whole day was perfect - the venue is lovely and the fact that we were able to have the ceremony outside was exactly what they wanted. Gary and Sarah put so much thought into everything about the day, however, without the help of the staff much of that would not have been possible and we really appreciate you all giving our son and new daughter-in-law a day to remember. Thank you once again.
Dear Kerry, How do I begin to thank you and the whole Rufflets team for Lara's MAGICAL wedding!! After all the months of planning it was wonderful to be able to hand the Wedding Day itself totally over to you and Rufflets to give Lara and David their perfect day. At Rufflets it was evident I was dealing with professionals at the top of their game. As the wedding co-ordinator your organisation, attention to detail and, above all, calmness was exemplary. The classic beauty of Rufflets Hotel and grounds were certainly on show and the garden ampitheatre was a perfect setting. Lara had her heart set on a Rufflets Garden wedding and she got it!
As it says in your brochure - Rufflets is an impressive and unique venue and our families were inspired! Many thanks for everything.
