For Emma, Joy, Ben and Teams at Stanley House, Mellor
Thank you so very much on behalf of everyone
Just a short note to convey our sincere thanks for everything you did for us to make the day so memorable.
You did what Stanley House is renowned for – provided excellent and precision service.
We all wish we could re-live the whole day again even though the day had a dark cloud over it with our sons terrible injury. We did our up-most to carry on with our chins up and brave facades!

Thank you very much to all of the staff at Stanley House for the most perfect day we could have hoped for. The hotel was one to rival any Wedding Venue.
The rooms were dressed to a very high standard, the staff were fantastic, the organisation was flawless, and Sarah and I were made to feel very special.
Our guests travelled from Spain, Holland, Scotland, as well as many local area’s, and all commented on what a fantastic day they had.
We would like to thank Joy & Emma, for helping us plan our wedding, advising us every step of the way, making us feel very assured that our day was going to be one to remember.
Every detail was taken care of, even the little things that the Bride and Groom could have easily forgotten to organise.
On the Wedding Day, our Operations Manager Ben, was in complete control of everything, making sure that Sarah and I were taken care of, and ensuring that the service from all of his staff was
to the standard expected of this First Class Wedding Venue. Thank you Ben, the day couldn’t have gone any better.
The Gardens were in outstanding condition, giving us the opportunity to take some wonderful photographs.
On the Saturday after the Wedding, both Sarah and I were sad to be leaving Stanley House, and wished we could rewind to Friday, so we could do it all again.
Stanley House will come with our highest recommendations to any future Bride & Groom.
Best Wishes and thank you all.
