Simon, we were all blown away by the standard of the catering and the service. Many friends are used to top restaurants in London and they all remarked that the food was of Michelin star status and they just loved every bit of deliciousness. Everyone just adored the different choice of canapés, the divine scallops so perfectly cooked, the rare lamb with the fabulous melange of flavours, and the gorgeous orange tart. Sadly I had to help the bride (in the bathroom!) at that stage so only managed to eat part of my desert!
Thank you so much for all your help and support over the last few months and for an absolute perfect performance by your team on the day.
With best wishes Christina

Rachel & Riou’s Big Day — Marquee in Usk

Simon – I just wanted to say what a huge thank you to you and your team for our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding blessing at The Mansion House on Saturday, 31 March 2018. The venue was great, the food was excellent and the service appeared effortless. I don’t want to single anyone out as I don’t know everyone’s name, suffice to say all of your team were polite, attentive and efficient. They all worked very hard and nothing was too much trouble.
The disco was also excellent and I will contact Sound Wave separately the thank Darren for a great evening.
We may have two more weddings to come and will certainly have you and The Mansion House at the top of our potential venue list.
Thank you again.
Geoff and Diane Summers

Fine Dining in Clifton — Mansion House

Dear Simon,

Before my year as Master of the Guild fades into the distant past, I wanted to thank you and your team for all your support over the past year. Much of the success of the Guardians’ events is inextricably linked to the fine fare, excellent service and efficient organisation of your team. So again, thank you, and I look forward to the opportunity to appreciate all of this without the interruption of having to make speeches and announcements in the future!
With best wishes

Dear Simon

Now that I finally have a moment, I would just like to take the opportunity to thank both you and Abigail for all your hard work in providing us with a really fantastic day last Saturday for Ellen and Drew’s wedding.

The Mansion House is such a lovely setting and the weather was even better than we could have hoped for at the end of September!

We really appreciated all the help and support we received from yourself and the rest of the staff  both before the event, and on the day, which ensured that the day went so smoothly and stress free. A number of our guests commented on how helpful and efficient the staff were.

I know that all our guests had a wonderful time,  and that Ellen and Drew loved every minute of it.


With many thanks again,


Kind regards



Jill Cooper

Ellen & Drew’s very sunny day — The Lord Mayors Mansion House, Clifton.

Hi Chloe, Simon and Abigail
I hope that you are all well. I apologise for not emailing earlier, we’ve been away and got back at the weekend. Dom and I wanted to write to you all to thank you for our amazing wedding day, we had such a wonderful time. It was exactly the day that we wanted and all of our family and friends were so well looked after by you and your team, it really felt seemless. The service by the staff was excellent and the food was really delicious. We wouldn’t have changed anything.
Best wishes and thank you again
Lucy and Dom

Lucy & Dom Congrats! — The Lord Mayors Mansion House, Clifton.

Hi Abigail,

I was just emailing to say thank you to you and your team for being so wonderful before and on our wedding day.  We had a fantastic day and that was mostly because of you guys; keeping things moving, providing wonderful food, not minding too much when someone broke a plate (still not sure how he dropped his knife and shattered the plate), amongst a million other things you did for us.

I hope dealing with all our guests wasn’t too taxing for you.

Anyway, thank you again for helping us make our day so special.

Best wishes

Gemma & Michael

Gemma & Michael’s smashing day. — The Lord Mayors Mansion House, Clifton.


Good afternoon Simon/Abigail,

We just wanted to send a quick e-mail to say many thanks for helping to organise our wedding ceremony on 24/06/2017 and for all your assistance in making the day so special.

We had a really fantastic day, everything went brilliantly and we were really pleased with the venue and the food, service, etc. that we received from you guys; we’d have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else planning a wedding!

As you can expect there are lots of photos which illustrate the venue, food and so on and we’re more than happy for you to use these for promotional purposes.

Once again thank you for helping to make our wedding a complete success and best wishes for the future!

Best regards,

Justine and Phil
