We just wanted to drop you a note to say how happy we were with our wedding ceremony on Saturday. The Council Chamber looked amazing and was full of amazing energy on the day.
The staff at the venue were lovely, calming and professional. We felt very looked after. Thank you so much for letting us host our ceremony with you, it really was a highlight for us.’

Thanks so much to both of you for all your hard work in the planning stages for this year’s event. Thanks for your patience during our numerous recces answering numerous questions.

We really appreciated you both having such a ‘can do’ attitude and to seeking permission from various departments in the council to allow us to use areas in addition to the Atria.

We’ve been complimented on the atmosphere and how well the event space worked as a whole (including the car park at the end of the night!).
