Dear Fleur

This is overdue but the tempo since 4th February, Jenny and Bevan’s wedding has continued to accelerate!

I want to thank you and your staff yet again for being able to host a very special family milestone for us. Many events conspired to bring it all together (weather, setting, the bride…) but much of the oiled machinery of The Day was due to your expertise, planning and seamless service. It all combined to make unforgettable history for us and we now have the wonderful photos to enable us to relive the experience.
Sincere thanks to you and your great team, especially Marcellus (sp?) who I really hope is still with you. He has much to commend him to the hospitality industry, not least of all a most engaging and accommodating manner to absorb all our queries even when he’d obviously had very little sleep!

We would like to express our thanks and appreciation to Fleur and her team at Oreti Lodge for the fabulous weekend that they helped us put together around our wedding day. The resort is a very special location and we couldn’t have chosen a better place. Having the majority of our guests with us for the full weekend was very special. The facilities provided everyone with all that they needed and as the sun shone beautifully for the whole weekend our day was absolutely fabulous.

Fleur and her team where friendly and incredibly helpful to everyone and made a special effort to ensure that the ceremony and reception was everything we dreamed off. Our guests as well as ourselves are still talking about the experience. Fabulous venue, fabulous food, fabulous wine and the best service. This is an experience not to be missed.
