Dear Jonathon & Nikki,
Where do we begin and what can we say!!
These two are the most amazing couple who are an absolute must at any wedding.
From the first meeting we had with them both Paul and myself felt so comfortable with Jonathon and Nikki and immediately felt that they would take care of everything and that our day would run smoothly. They both have the most wonderful calming nature that makes you feel you could trust them with anything.
You see our wedding had a little twist as well, the guest's thought they were coming to a Summer Party, not a wedding. We wanted to keep it casual and relaxed with no worries about outfits and hats or speeches or bridesmaids wearing dresses they didn't want to be in. So even as the guests arrived at our amazing venue of Port Lymphne Hotel and Reserve they weren't to know. So I, the bride, appeared in a normal summer dress and the groom in trousers and shirt. All the doors were shut to the ceremony and wedding breakfast room and Jonathon & Nikki were dressed as safari rangers so no-one knew they were actually toastmasters. They had been a great help with suggestions of how we could do things to keep the secret going for as long as we could. I carefully disappeared up to my room to get changed and then Paul disappeared to put his waistcoat and jacket on. My poor Dad had ended up in A & E at 6am on the day of the wedding and of course thinking it was just a party was just saying "it's ok I'm alright and we will be there but a bit late so just start without us"!! Which of course I didn't want to do as I wanted Dad to walk me down the isle - even though he didn't know he was doing it! But Nikki & Jonathon (and the hotel staff) were amazing - arranging food and a cup of tea for him for when he got there (being in A & E and having a two hour drive to the venue had meant he had had no breakfast), it was the hottest day of the year
28 degrees) but they made sure the whole situation was calm, the ceremony delayed until he felt ok to come out of his room, they kept me calm and at no point did I feel any stress - just a bit worried about Dad but everyone assured me he was ok. They even looked after Dad again a bit later as he had a bit of a funny turn with the heat and probably all that had happened that day by taking him to his room for a lay down.
We had so many comments from our guests about how amazing they were, how friendly, fun, organised and on the ball with everything. They made sure Paul and I had water to drink through the heat of the day, as well as bubbles too of course! And we really felt that we could just leave them to ensure all the little details were taken care of.
We really can't recommend these two lovely people enough, you honestly wouldn't be disappointed if you have them as part of your Wedding Day, they will ensure that everyone is happy and everything is running smoothly, and if anything doesn't go quite to plan you would barely know as they will take care of it. They are so easy to get on with and really make you fell that your day is how you want it to be with just some helpful tips along the way.
We wish them both the very best and look forward to talking to Nikki about our next holiday (she is a Travel Consultant as well!)
Kindest regards and many Thanks
Pam & Paul Wrightson
