    Dear Dawne
    Thank you for an amazing day on Thursday, it’s a day myself & Julian will never forget! Rebate was the most perfect setting for our wedding day.
    We are so happy with how everything went from the church, priest, flowers, photography, canapés, cocktails, food, waiters, music & dancers.
    We are still getting compliments from all our friends & family saying it was the best wedding they were ever at (and they’ve been to alot of weddings!).
    When we look back on our wedding day we will always think of that place of paradise that is Rebate.
    Thank you so much to yourself, Hazel, Bob & all the Rebate team.
    Lots of love
    Mr. & Mrs King! Xxxxxxxxx

    We really don’t know where to start with describing just how magical and amazing our wedding day was on June 26th. It was simply like a dream and we have so many people to thank I don’t know where to begin. Am still so overwhelmed by the sheer joy and happiness we felt and it was just the most perfect, perfect day. Dawne and Bob, you and your team are just incredible. We cannot begin to thank you enough. Hazel and Sarah huge huge thanks for all you did for us. Reverend Eddie, the service was brilliant, all our family and friends loved it. Andrew – a big thank you for making me feel so at ease with the photos at the hotel and throughout the ceremony and the Reception. You really are a master of capturing it all and I already know our photos will be out of this world. To Antonio and all the waiting staff … our guests have not stopped talking about the amazing food and wine and the professionalism of your team. A really huge thank you for a wonderful evening of delights. DJ Damian – you were brilliant and kept everyone on their feet throughout the night ….. Thanks for playing our favourite tunes and requests and for helping the band to set up …. you were simply amazing and just so helpful at all times. To our car drivers, especially to Dave who played his ZZ Top CD (at my request) so that we could sing all the way to Rebate and calm my nerves. And Dawne, thank you for all your advice and encouragement to simply enjoy the moment …. we really really did and we will never ever forget the magic of Rebate. Xxxxxx

Every little thing you said would happen did happen, there are no words in this world to describe the wonderful job you all done, from your good self, Hazel, Eddie, Andrew, Damien (whom messaged us the same night to say what a great night he had), not forgetting Laurie and Reece, the head waiter and his staff! I just can’t Thankyou enough, myself Debbie and all our guests will talk about our beautiful day for an eternity and we will definately be back up to Rebate to visit you all again. Please pass on our best wishes to bob and hope to meet him on our return. Quite simply Dawne your the best and we love you!

    so, here goes! There’s really not much I can add to all the previous posts or e-mails on here. I agree wholeheartedly with them all! However I will pass on this sound bit advice, let Dawne,Hazel, Sarah and the rest of the team work their magic,trust them as I promise you they will go beyond more than you can ever imagine! Dawne Lynda Dawe everything you said would happen, did happen, from the tiniest detail right up to the big finale. I will never forget you approaching me and my bridesmaids as We arrived,with such a beautiful cascade and poses, it was emotional but you soon fixed that,as seeing your face and hearing your comforting words before I walked into the chapel, totally put me at my ease.
    Wendy oops I mean Hazel Turbefield (private joke) thank you just doesn’t seem to be enough, you and Dawne must be psychic twins as you both knew what the other was thinking, your energy and attention to detail was inspiring, also it was lovely meeting your son jack back at our hotel who was stranded when his flight was cancelled (how spooky)Eddie you absolutely smashed it, your service was beautiful, you had our guests roaring with laughter with your witty anecdotes it worked perfectly, it was an absolute pleasure meeting you and spending some quality time with you. Andrew your a star, it was a privilege to see a professional at work, your ideas your direction was breathtaking and we wait in anticipation to see our pictures, just hurry up please as we’re bursting with excitement ? Damian Munz your a legend, take a bow sir, can’t believe it was past midnight before we got to the first dances,as the dance floor was full before the meal and even during the break in the meal courses! Fantastic stuff and Your message meant a lot too ? Reece,Laurie, the head waiter, his staff and the barmen take a bow, thank you for looking after us and our guests with professionalism, and such a friendly attitude, again thank you just doesn’t seem to cut it.
    The 5 course meal was to die for, the cake was beautiful but bloody heavy as my husband Robert said ? the marachi band and flamenco dancers just blew everyone away they enjoyed both immensely. Our reception area was truly beautiful. Our guests said that this was the best wedding they have ever been too, including their own lol. So for all you future brides this is the fairy tale wedding you have always dreamt about, sit back, let Dawne and her team do their magic and enjoy the experience you are in safe hands and will not be disappointed. Wish we were doing it all again! We are definitely returning to rebate to visit you all, as we feel we have made new friends. Thank you from the bottom of hearts, much love and continuous success to you all at weddings in rebate.
