My husband and I would like to say a big thank you to Crowne Plaza – Five Lakes for making our wedding day so memorable. We would like to specifically thank Sarah for the amazing support we’ve received from her. We booked the wedding date with your previous wedding co-ordinator, Lauren. When Lauren left and Sarah started we met with her soon after and from then on she was fully committed in helping us with whatever we needed. She always responds to emails straight away – even if it was the 10th email I sent that day in the weeks building up to the wedding and no question seemed to be “too stupid”.

We would also like to thank Ravin who made us feel very at ease on the day of our wedding it was amazing having someone there on the day who took the nervousness off both me and Colin. I’m sure he was VERY busy on the day but he never let us feel that he was.

We wouldn’t have had such an amazing wedding day without Sarah and Ravin and are so very grateful that both of them were part of our wedding.

We would also like to thank Nicola in your Reservations team for sorting out all the rooms and all the changes that came with it. – Bride August 2015
