I wanted to say thank you so much, and sorry once again that this has come so late. Everything was so amazing, John you were wonderful, you thought of things that we didn’t even think of, and we were so incredibly disorganized but nobody could tell, because you guys made things so smooth and delightful.  Honestly, we have heard so many amazing things about the venue, the food, the service etc. from our guests.

Tim and I were beyond ecstatic, considering we had never seen the place before or met you guys, but we were so impressed with how beautiful everything was, and how the greatest care was given to everything, you are truly one of the most amazing wedding venues we have ever visited, and one of the most delightful people we have liaised with for the wedding, and we are so happy that we decided to have our wedding at Silvestri’s.

I really can’t express enough how much you made our day, you were wonderful and accommodating in every way.

‘Dear John and each one of your dedicated team,

We would like to express our appreciation to you all for your part in making our daughters wedding the delightful occasion that it was.

We all fell in love with the venue at first sight and our search was over almost before it began.

It is a truly beautiful place.  The garden is magnificent.

Your professionalism was evident throughout all of our dealings, from the initial consultation to the final arrangements meeting and you always took time to clarify our questions and understand our wishes.  In all of our interactions you provided solutions to any problems we foresaw.  This was a major contributing factor to a lack of stress for us all in the lead up to the day.

The food and wine were, as anticipated, excellent, and a true highlight.  We felt that the needs of our guests were well catered for.  The service we received on the night was quiet and respectful, yet friendly and personal.  We felt that you and your staff went beyond what we expected.

Overall, the occasion was one which we will remember with joy forever’
