what couples say...

“Bernadette was one of the highlights of our wedding, held at the Luton Hoo Mansion House. She was quick to take charge in the hectic minutes leading up to the wedding and was able to corral all of our vendors to the right positions at the right time and with a certain grace that only experience can provide. Bernadette’s speech was unique to us as a couple and left the audience feeling that she was more of a long time friend of ours than anything else.”
