Thank you the amazing team at Boomrock. We had the most special day at Boomrock. And yes our guests could not get over Boomrock - they loved the lodge, the food, the setting (so basically the entire experience!!) Boomrock is such a stunning and magical place and we were beyond impressed at being able to have our wedding in such an amazing setting. Please thank the chef and his team for the absolutely stunning food -from the canapes through to our main meals was just fantastic and our guests ( and us !) just loved it all!! And thanks to the bar staff and waiting staff too ! You did a great job of looking after us and our guests. And thanks to Simon who assisted with the clay shooting !! Amazing experience for our guests. - thank you. To you Chloe and Nick - a special thank you to you both - you made the experience so easy for Glen and I - from the start of our planning through to the end of the night - you both looked after us, our bridal teams and our guests so well .
