Recent feedback below that we received from one of our Brides after their Wedding Ceremony and Reception with us….
Feedback… sorry I’ve been so delayed with this it’s been a crazy couple of months!
We LOVED it. Amazing day, great atmosphere, was lovely having people around from early on but also knowing they were entertained by hot laps. The photos, as you’ll see are amazing. All the staff in the lead up and on the day were FANTASTIC! I’ve honestly lost count of the amount of times I’ve recommended The Bend to brides now. It was perfectly unique allowing us to add in little touches that will probably not be seen again but for us they were perfect.
Everyone commented how amazing the venue was, so many people said it was better than their own wedding. It went way too fast but I loved every second of it.
Overall, we’d 110% do it all again with you guys! We can’t wait for things to settle down a little bit and get back to stay again. Everyone that was able to do Karts the next day loved it too!
