I just want to put in writing how grateful we are to all those involved in making our wedding day a fantastic one. Eltham Palace is an outstanding and beautiful setting for a wedding but a wedding cannot be successful on location alone. We cannot fault the staff at Eltham Palace who were so friendly, kind and professional and helped to make our day a magical one.

Eltham Palace, March 2015

Our wedding day at Osborne was perfect, everything we hoped for and more. All the staff worked tirelessly on the day to ensure that every detail was met. Not only a beautiful setting, but a great service before and on the day itself. Thank you for giving us such a wonderful day.
