    Where do I begin??  I honestly can not put into words how perfect the day was from start to finish, the best day of our lives!!  I just want to say a huge thank you to all the rebate team for a marvellous job you all did, and how smoothly the day ran.

    Firstly a big thank you to Rev Keith, who made the service wonderful.  All the guests have said how amazing and funny he was, and he certainly made James feel at ease (which is quite difficult at times!!)

    Another big thank you to the mariachi band, what a lovely surprise for the guests, and they even allowed one guest to wear a hat and be part of the their band!!

    Another big thank you to Andrew the photographer.  The photos I am sure will be beautiful, at times we didn’t even know he was there.

    Another big thank you to the chefs, the food was absolutely delicious.  The canapés were amazing, and so many different choices.  I don’t think the guests realised how many courses there were, every one being cooked to perfection.

    Another big thanks to Katie, you were so lovely with all the children, a complete god send!!  The pictures my niece and nephew produced were definitely art gallery material!!  So attentive, you couldn’t have done anymore.

    Another big thank you to the DJ.  What a night!!!  Everybody loved the music!!  Some of the dance moves were unforgettable, and all because of the music.  He was completely in tune with the audience.

    Most of all thank you to Dawne, Hazel, Bob and all the other team members who made the venue look magical.  The flowers were exactly what I wanted, the top terrace looked absolutely beautiful.  The table decorations, the lights, the cake, the LOVE sign was just perfect.  Myself and James cannot fault the day, can we do it all over again please?!?!  The guests have all said what a magical place rebate is, and it is the best wedding they have ever attending, like a fairy-tale.  I would recommend this venue to anybody I know, I cannot stop thinking about the amazing day we had and we will be visiting rebate very soon.

    Thank you so much for everything.  Will be seeing you in the near future

    Lots of love and best wishes

    James and Emily Sinkinson-Wilson


    Dear Dawne
    Just a note to say how utterly wonderful Rebate was for the wedding of our much loved youngest daughter Emily – it certainly exceeded all our expectations! From the moment we arrived the whole event was superbly managed at a relaxed and leisurely pace enabling guests to mingle whilst enjoying the superb food and magical ambience of Rebate. You and your team were totally unobtrusive and each aspect ran like clockwork! The delicious food, beautiful decorations, attentive staff, dj who was certainly in tune with his audience, the responsive and talented Andrew, the brilliant and creative young lady who delighted and excited the children and last but not least Hazel and yourself who obviously worked tirelessly in the background to make this day so very special – a huge thank you from us all – much love Lynda and Tony Sinkinson xxx

    This is for all the team at Rebate ❤️
    Where do we begin ?
    On the 23rd of July We experienced one of the most magical, emotional and amazing days of our lives !!!
    Wow oh wow we were blown away as were all of our guests .
    Our expectations of the day were nothing compared to the reality , everything was far more than we could have hoped for X
    Right from the start Dawne did her best to calm my nerves ( thank you ) Dawne you were right I didn’t need to stress , when I think back now you were like a fairy godmother, sweeping in , working your magic and covering everything in glitter ?
    A few quotes from our guests
    ” I don’t think any wedding will ever top that ”
    ” it’s the best wedding we’ve ever been too ”
    ” I really wish we had got married here “
    You all work so hard behind the scenes in such heat ,Hazel and Dawne we don’t know how you do it ?
    Our service was just brilliant, the very charming and funny reverend Keith had everybody laughing and crying all at the same time , we have never before experienced a service like that thank you from the bottom of our hearts xx
    Andrew and Sheri ( great name by the way ?) you made us feel so at ease when taking our photos , we really really can’t wait to see them , I was a bit worried that Andrew was going to fall off the wall at one point but I guess you get yourself in those positions all the time to get the right shot , thank you xx
    Canapé time , just delicious , so much choice , so many new things to try ( the ham was my favourite, the best I’ve ever had )
    Cocktails, cava , beer , wine , even brandy when Dan was asked what he would like to drink Antonio had it there in seconds !!
    Dinner oooooo yummy
    So we were thinking that our starters were going to be little tastes of everything , but no they were massive almost like a full meal in itself !
    I mentioned to the very lovely Antonio that I didn’t like fish of any kind and that I didn’t need to be served the last starter, I really wasn’t expecting a replacement , however within minutes he had arranged for the kitchen to make me something else which I have to say was my favourite of the three ?
    The service all the waiting staff provided was top class , we felt like Royalty .
    Jose jvan and Azucena thank you our glasses were never empty X
    Our main course was exceptional but the dessert oh my !!!!
    It’s the best we’ve ever had and so very beautiful ( We recommend the violet pannacotta to every future bride and groom )
    Then for the dancing , and did we dance !!
    Damian I’m sorry for all the messages about the music beforehand, dancing is my favourite thing to do , you played everything on my long list and filled in the gaps with tunes that everyone loved , you really do know your stuff !! Thank you xxx
    Rosie , our entertainer for the children ( lots of children) you kept them amused all night long even getting them to sleep in their buggies so there parents could party the night away , they really didn’t want you to leave lol
    Rosie is a must at your wedding even if you only have a couple of children she is worth her weight in gold
    Thank you Rosie xx
    Unfortunately my mum was taken a little ill during the evening , but she was OK after a knight in shining armour came to the rescue,
    Antonio…….. Not only the best head waiter in the world but an amazing paramedic xxxx
    We really had the best time ever , all bar staff , security and chaperones were amazing xxx
    Thank you all once again xxxx
    Danny and Sheri Mckeever
    Note to future brides and grooms..
    Enjoy , it WILL be the most wonderful day X

    Hi Dawne and all of the team at Rebate!

    It was so important for us to take the time to say a massive thank you to everybody who contributed to make our wedding day everything and more we could have ever hoped for.

    Dawne from the very beginning you made us feel as if we were a very special couple, and when we left the wedding office after our first meeting with you and Hazel we absolutely knew we were in safe hands. We had complete trust in your judgement and overtime everything we discussed from the food, service, colours, flowers, music, and entertainment we knew that your attention to detail was impeccable, and that our day was truly going to be a day to remember for the rest of our lives.

    To Keith our minister, what can we say other than you were perfect, you made us laugh and cry and you were so incredibly funny, a true gent!

    Maria your singing made our service truly amazing and so emotional, Dawne said you would bring the house down but nothing prepared us for your performance, your voice was mesmerising, and of course the mariachi band, they just bought a smile to everybody’s face when they arrived, they certainly set the mood for the rest of the day.

    Damian the music just flowed all evening, there was never a moment when the floor wasn’t filled with people laughing and dancing, you did an incredible job!

    Andrew what can we say, we didn’t stop crying and smiling when we saw the photographs, and slideshow, you managed to capture the entire essence of the day, such attention to detail, just brilliant! What a great guy!

    And finally to the staff from Rebate whose service was faultless, perfect food and wine served in abundance all day and evening. Antonio you were a star you worked tirelessly and made sure that everything we needed was there and you always had a smile for us all, so thank you!

    Rebate has and always will hold a special place in our hearts, from the first time we visited we knew we had found a hidden jewel so for all you ladies and gents that might be considering a special celebration all we can say is that you won’t be disappointed, Dawne and her team will make sure you have the best day of your lives, we certainly did and 2 weeks after our event our guests can’t stop talking about it, they all agreed that without a doubt it was the best wedding they had ever been to.

    Thank you to you all.

    Anita and Anthony

    Hi Andrew,

    They are just fabulous made me cry, so many happy memories!!… What a day!! Everybody still keeps sending messages reminiscing about the day and how spectacular it was. I told Dawne I will be writing a testimonial for blog so will hopefully get it done today.

    Andrew thank you so much for being there on the day and catching all those special moments of all the people that mean so much to us. You really are a nice fella and all the guests said you were a nice down to earth guy, so hats off to you.

    Thanks again
    Anita x
