“We had the absolute best time at our wedding and Michael and the staff were unbelievably amazing – we have had so many comments from guests about how fantastic the service was. And the food!! Everything ran so smoothly and we could not fault any of it – people also kept telling us that having to change our venue at the last minute must have been a sign because everything was so perfect!
And thank you so much to you for all of your help. What should have been such a stressful situation (chosing a new venue 5 weeks out!) was so seamless and we knew we were in good hands! Thank you so much for making It all so easy!!” Tiziana & Rod, 26th October 2019

So many of our guests have commented on how beautiful the day was and how amazing Encore and your team were. We received lots of compliments about how wonderful the food was too.
Thank you to the whole team – Nell, Antonia, Michael, Chrys and Amelia for making our wedding day as amazing as it was. Nothing was too much trouble for you guys and you handled everything so professionally, always making sure to check we were happy. You are all superstars at what you do and we can’t thank you enough for your contribution to our special day and would recommend Encore in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a wedding venue. We are still buzzing and wish we could do it all over again! All the very best to you” Con & Jimmy, 27th September 2019
