From Our Brides & Grooms
We can’t thank you enough for everything that was done by all the staff at The Trans to make our wedding so perfect. We had the absolute best time!! I have honestly been raving to anyone who will listen about how well you guys looked after us. Everything was thought of including the extra touches like giving the bridal party food and drinks during our photos. That was an absolute lifesaver!! Our guests kept calling us in the days following telling us what a fabulous time they had, how amazing the venue was, how great the staff were and THE FOOD!! Everyone was seriously raving about it! They said they were full before the main meal because everything was so delicious they couldn’t stop eating! All of the staff were so professional and polite, taking direction from Ash who was a total superstar the whole night and went above and beyond expectations! Nothing was too much trouble for her and if I had a question or needed anything she was on top of it straight away. She even had the patience of a saint as I tried to drag all the stragglers out at the end of the night And then you! From the moment I talked to you on the phone I knew I was in capable hands and that everything had worked out for the best. You have so much knowledge to share and good advice, it was easy to feel relaxed about the whole thing. Your food and beverage suggestions were perfect too! Honestly I could just keep talking about how amazing the whole night was! Anyway that was just one tiny part of such a fabulous day. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the trans or holding another event there. We are definitely available to come to the wedding open night this week and are happy to answer any questions and rave about you all to anyone who will listen!
I want to say a HUGE thank you for arranging our engagement party on the weekend. I am blown away with the venue, service and food! Ash was outstanding and I really could not fault her at all! I was feeling a little unwell at the beginning but having her helping out and just giving me a smile each time I walked past made me feel at ease! I had quite a few people from the industry there from Cloudland and they really impressed with the renovations and the food especially!!
One week ago we got married at the Transcontinental Hotel. Just wanted to thank everyone for a brilliant day. Ash you are a star and we love you. Thank you for looking after us so well. You are amazing and cannot rave about you enough. Everything was great … food, staff venue. Also a big thankyou to Nicolle sorry you couldn’t be there but we will send through photos soon xx Lynn and Andrew xx
Got all the photos lovely! Would love to bring them by for a sneaky vino and we can have a look at them! It was great for me to see them cause it all went by so quickly haha! I had a cry looking at Ant setting up the ceremony! Let me know when suits you guys and we’ll come in for a catch up! We love you both and are so impressed and happy with how you organized everything! You guys are so incredible! And Ash, what a superstar, no words!!!! She was amazing getting everything all sorted for us to collect on Sunday and coming in on her day off! I was telling my friends the other day that although lots didn’t go to plan on the day, I knew that everything would be fine with The Trans! I had no doubts and you guys followed through! You were the one thing I knew I didn’t have to worry about! We couldn’t ask for a better team from you both!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you & to give you a massive virtual hug (I’m sure there’s an “emoji” for that but I don’t know how to find it), because I didn’t really get a chance to do either of those things on the day (well I think I gave you a drunken hug but that doesn’t really count). The reception was beyond perfect – both of us were so, so happy with everything you did & pretty much everyone who was there said it was the most relaxed, hilarious, bestest reception they had been to in a long time, so thank you – I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Anyone I know who decides to get hitched in the foreseeable future will receive your number as their engagement gift because you were amazing!
Look forward to bumping into you some time in the future.
Jeremy and i would like to that you for all you help and effort with our wedding. We and all our family and friend had a great night and said best wedding ever. Ash everyone keep talking how amazing you are and you had everything under contra. As a bride i know we can be bit hard to deal with but i was so relaxed on the nigh because what every would go on or happens Ash would have been on it. I just want to thank you for that and all you have done.
