“There are not enough words to describe how incredible you guys are as a team. We could not have had more fun working with you to create and execute the magical weekend that was our wedding. Abby and Anneli were supportive, well informed and helpful in guiding our mangled ideas through to something that could be physically achieved on the day, as well as providing a fabulous food tasting weekend! They made the rather daunting planning process enjoyable. Then the weekend arrived and everyone upped their game even more! Nick really came into his own, tirelessly setting up across the entire village whilst dishing out cold beers when needed. He quite literally did not stop all weekend and did it all with a smile on his face. In short, he was epic. Abby was so creative with everything that we had rough ideas about and was quite the calming influence during the whole weekend! She is unflappable! Exactly what you need, we couldn’t have done it without her. Last but by no means least Anneli. With her food, enthusiasm and seemingly endless energy, she was just incredible. Everything turned out better than we could possibly have hoped for. In short, you all created a weekend both for us and our 120 guests that we will remember for the rest of our lives and for that we will be eternally grateful. Can’t wait to do it all again for our 10th wedding anniversary! xxx”

Tom & Fran – Aug 2019

Dear Nick, Anneli and all of the Castelnau team, Thank you so much for helping us to create our incredible wedding weekend. Castelnau is such a special and unique venue, we fell in love with the setting as soon as we pulled up and knew it would be perfect for us! You were so helpful and supportive throughout the planning process and were fantastic during the wedding celebration. We will forever treasure the most wonderful memories made with our families and friends, and truly could not have wished for a more beautiful place and fabulous team. We will be back to visit soon! All our love, Fran and Tom x x x

Thank you for making everything look so beautiful, more so than we could have imagined. Dinner on Friday was so lovely with those wood center pieces and long tables and strings of lights. You did an incredible job setting up the terrace on Cassagnet both Friday night and Sunday. It really could not have been better.

Sandy & Suzy June 2019

Anneli thank you for getting our dream off the floor. Nick thank you for all of your hard work in the planning and execution of the weekend. Your help in the build-up was invaluable and we know you did not stop for four or five days sorting everything out for us from collecting music equipment to making sure everything else ran as it should all weekend. Abby thank you for all of your help with the various bookings and organisation and decorating throughout the weekend. It was amazing being able to rely on the three of you to run the weekend allowing us to enjoy ourselves. Thank you for always taking the time to stop for us and listen to our questions and stresses and for your enthusiasm and good spirits the whole weekend. In addition to ourselves our parents were particularly impressed at how you looked after us and ran it all and many of our guests have described it has the best wedding they have ever been to! We were spoilt!

What at first seemed like an impossible task, having you as our planner, made things practically flawless. Not only did you oversee the planning of our big day, you oversaw all aspects of our weekend, from transporting 80 of our friends and family to the beautiful village to organising food, drinks, decorations and hardware.  You were very resourceful and knew of many local companies that you put us in contact with, due to that we got great value for money. You also have the patience of a Saint and nothing was ever too much effort. Many of our guests are getting married in the next year or 2, they all made the comment ‘’how can we possibly get anywhere near matching this’’We felt that was largely down you being on the ball for the whole planning process and making sure the whole weekend run smoothly. Our wedding weekend is one that us and our guests will never forget. 

Guest Testimonial June 2019

As a guest of our dear friends wedding last weekend, my husband and I were in awe of the beauty of Castelnau and the unique wedding experianece you delivered. It will forever stand out in our minds of a magical weekend. In a professional capacity as a wedding and events manager, I am highly impressed by the flawless, professional delivery from @laboutiqueevent team! Guests never realise the sheer amount of work that goes into delivering an occasion that size and nor should they of course, but I noticed the relentless beavering away behind the scenes. Hats off I’ll be sure to recommend you to my clients x

Thank you for all your hard work last weekend, this is massively appreciated and you made our life much easier.Also, it was a real pleasure to work with you for the last 6 months to organise our wedding, you are always super positive, enthusiastic and very helpful. So smiling and this is just amazing!

Cat & Russ June 2018

Thank you so so much for taking care of us. You have to believe us when we say that we had absolutely the best day of our lives. That shouldn’t sound as strange as it feels but the expectation is always there but in the end; I think it was a perfect combination of unique venue, time, detail, our very closest friends and family, weather and of course you guys which led us to a day that we will never ever forget. It was extraordinary and our memories of our wedding at that special place are rich and lush and full and colourful.

How lucky we were to have such a helpful and wonderful team by our side. The weekend was everything we had wished for – and much more!! From the moment we came to visit for the first time we were blown away by the enthusiasm and positive attitude of you Anneli; we felt immediately, that we would be in good hands and walked away knowing this was the place! Through the whole period of preparations this proved to be right; Anneli; you were always ready to help and full of good ideas and addresses. All of our – sometimes crazy – ideas were met with enthusiasm and nothing ever a problem. By the way; very impressed with your ability to stay calm. Thank you for making months of planning furniture, plants, light chains, candles, table decorations etc etc… come together. It looked absolutely amazing! You managed to make everything look exactly as I had hoped for and everybody told me it looked stunning! So thank you for your patience (and for the lifting of heavy furniture)!!

Lynne, Danielle and Sam June 2018

Just wanted to say what an amazing weekend we had at Josh and Franky’s wedding weekend.The venue, the staff, the food – truly fantastic. You all worked unbelievably hard to deliver what was the best wedding event we have ever been to. The interaction from all of you with the guests made it very special – as though you were all part of the celebration with us. That’s how it should be.Cannot thank you enough for everything.

Averil & Paul June 2019

Nick and Anneli,A massive thank you to you two and your team for making Sandy and Suzy’s dream come true and the most fabulous wedding weekend. It really was a fairy tale wedding , gorgeous venue, great food and relaxed ambience. Nick …a big thank you for your calm and reassuring manner (also for the sneaky G and T s when you picked up I was stressed !) All the staff for being so helpful and friendly and tolerating the very late nights !Can we do it all again, please ?!!!

Richard & Adrienne August 2019

From start to finish we enjoyed the programme you had laid on. The highlights that come to mind were the fascinating tour of the village with all its history, wine tasting, Sunday bbq and last but not least the live band on the Saturday night, who were most patient putting up with my various requests. Notwithstanding the kilos I lost doing my ‘murder on the dance floor’ routine I dread standing on the scales on my return to base in the knowledge the wonderful cheeses I hoovered up will have taken their toll! Nothing seemed too much; you all really contributed to the terrific celebrations.
