Parklands was brilliant! Staff were incredibly polite, welcoming and friendly. The venue looked amazing! The day ran very smoothly with Emma prompting us as and when things were about the take place (speeches etc). The food was brilliant! The set up was as I planned! We didn’t need to worry about anything on the day, the staff had this all in hand!
