The weather proved excellent after the initial hiccup and John's constant attention to the ebb and flow of our needs was superb. My congratulations to the Chef and his staff.

On behalf of Simon’s parents and ourselves, I just wanted to send you a big thank-you for the lovely reception that you and the Magdalene team organized for us on Saturday. Everyone was so helpful, from our arrival at the porters lodge to our departure the next day. They did everything they could to ensure that Sarah and Simon’s big day was perfect in every way. And the food at the reception was splendid. Could you please pass on our thanks to everyone involved”

A quick note of thanks to you (Lyn), Alan and the rest of the team for your help and support with our reception.  Although the numbers were a bit down on what we'd expected, it was still a successful evening that was enjoyed by all.  The food drew particular comment - without exception everyone was very impressed by the quality and how well it was presented to us.  Please could you pass on our compliments to all of the catering staff. Be assured that we'd have no hesitation in coming back to Magdalene in future for events or meetings, or in recommending you to our colleagues both inside and outside our business”

“I simply wanted to thank you for your extraordinary hard work in making Hannah & Michaels wedding such a beautiful affair. We have had so many cards, letters & calls praising the whole weekend & rightly so. The College looked gorgeous, the food & wine was superb, the atmosphere so warm and celebratory. How you dealt with such vast numbers I do not know! We are still marvelling at the fact that your chef & kitchen staff cooked perfect sea bass & perfect rack of lamb for so many guests!..... David & I thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts”

“Thank you so much – it was a wonderful experience and our guests were blown away by it. Everything ran smoothly and guests commented on the expertise of staff in particular the gentleman in charge of The Hall, John. The College looked beautiful; the fairy lights in the trees outside Ramsay were a lovely touch. Old Lodge 17 was an excellent place to get ready and the bottle of bubbly supplied was a really nice touch. We were very impressed from start to finish”.
