    Paul and I can’t thank YOU and everyone enough for making our wedding day so amazing and fabulous.

    Everyone worked so hard and seamlessly to make it such a memorable special occasion.

    YOU WERE RIGHT- everyone said it was the best wedding they have EVER been to!

    We did try to thank you personally at Rebate twice but you weren’t there unfortunately.

    We’d  love to put a review on but not sure where if you can advise us.

    Lots of love

    Maria and Paul Allen

    I can’t think of any words to describe our day other than absolutely perfect.

    Thank you much to everyone involved in making our day truly amazing.

    Thank you to Michelle (or me-shell ?) from head to toe for being so lovely – we loved spending the morning with you, you are so talented and we loved the makeup!

    Thank you to Dave for such a calm journey to Rebate and for ringing the church bells! The car looked lovely and you patiently listened to my minute by minute countdown of how long we had left of the journey to arrive at 5.01pm (Dawne, you were right!)

    Rev Eddie, you are the funniest man in Spain! The entire service was hilarious and so unbelievably personal to us, thank you for making it so wonderful. I’m glad all of Chris’ friends now know he loves TOWIE!

    Thank you to Andrew for being so chilled out, you made everyone feel at ease and we cannot wait to see the photos. It mustn’t have been easy trying to get everyone all together but you did it without anyone even realising!

    Hazel I was so happy to see you when the car pulled up. It made me feel so comfortable knowing you were there with the answers to any questions. My sister said how much of a brilliant job you did organising the bridesmaids before I arrived. The decorations looked amazing and the photos were hung out beautifully, thank you so much!

    Thank you to Antonio and his team, they were brilliant throughout the evening. The food and wine were absolutely amazing. Antonio was so conscious to make sure everyone was happy, he is such a lovely man!

    Thank you to Reece for keeping everything under control throughout the day and night. I hope you didn’t hate the singing on the bus too much! Rosie, you were so lovely with my little nieces and the other children keeping them entertained all night. Thank you for being so kind and friendly to everyone!

    Damien! We absolutely loved the music. We didn’t realise you would be playing music throughout the meal, everyone commented on how good it was! I gave you about 10 minutes notice on the song we wanted for our first dance and you were so chilled about it. Thank you for being so brilliant!!! Also, Chris has asked me to thank you for keeping the men updated with the England score!

    Finally, Dawne & Bob. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us. We can’t thank you enough for making this entire process stress free. I don’t know any other brides who have been so relaxed in the lead up to their big day but I just knew you had everything under control. Dawne my flowers were honestly the nicest I have ever seen, I must have asked every guest if they thought my bouquet was amazing about ten times. Everything was exactly how we wanted it to be! Bob we were so sad not to see you this time but we will come and see you on our next trip when you have fully recovered!

    You are all amazing and we will be forever grateful to you for giving us the best experience of our lives.

    With lots of love,
    Nancy & Chris

    This is a bit of a long as we are not sure where to start with our appreciation for everyone involved in making our wedding fit for a queen never mind a bride, so I will go in order!

    Firstly, myself and my bridesmaids had our hair done at Head To Toe, and they couldn’t have done anymore for us, it was absolutely perfect and I honestly felt amazing, then the wonderful Michelle worked her magic and did myself and my mother’s make up, perfect does not even come close, it was completely breath taking and we had so many compliments!

    Next is Andrew, Andrew arrived at my hotel suite to take some pictures of my immediate family, you wouldn’t have even known he was there, he walked in to a calm atmosphere and just did his thing, he was so lovely and extremely professional and was a joy to have around whilst we were all getting ready, we had a mixture of laughs during our photographs as well as taking sentimental pictures, I cannot recommend him enough! We cannot wait to see our pictures! Even at Rebate, he organised everyone without anyone even realising they were being organised and it all went so smoothly, I hope he had as much fun doing our pictures and we did with him taking them.

    Arriving at Rebate and Reverend Eddie,
    Myself and my dad arrived at Rebate and Hazel, Sarah and Andrew were waiting for us, Hazel gave me my absolutely gorgeous bouquet of flowers which alone almost had me in tears because I couldn’t imagine them to be as perfect as they were! We then headed up to the chapel (unfortunately 4 glasses of Cava at the hotel made me need to go toilet before I entered the chapel haha).

    Reverend Eddie’s service was beautiful, he even mentioned my husband’s father who passed away 8 years ago which meant the world to Aran because it made him feel as if there was a piece of his dad with us, he had everyone laughing as well as a few tears, anyone getting married at Rebate would be so lucky to have Eddie conduct their service as he went above and beyond anything you could imagine, he didn’t just feel like a reverend, he felt like a guest because he was so personal through out the entire service.

    Everyone was raving about the canapes and they went down an absolute treat!

    Everything was down to the finest detail, perfect does not even come close, tables were amazing, flowers were breathtaking and everything felt like a dream, when you imagine how you would want your wedding day, you can’t imagine how Rebate can make you feel down to the smallest details.

    When we left the Chapel the amazing Mariachi band came up the stairs, it was even better as no-one was expecting it! They were such a fantastic Spanish touch and we highly recommend them to anyone!

    The sit down meal we had, well, I am lost for words, 5 starters, 1 main and the desert, it was all gorgeous!!! Everyone needed a break after the meal before the dancing started because everyone was in a food coma, I was still full the next day.

    The waiters, I don’t know where to start with the waiters, they are part of such an amazing team and Rebate are so lucky to have such amazing people working with them to complete an already amazing day, they could not do anymore for us, we never had an empty glass and they even took the time out to come over and ask if we were enjoying ourselves, they were not there just to do a job, they were there to make sure everyone was OK and enjoying yourselves, anything they did was never enough to them, they were always trying to do better, and as we told them, it couldn’t get any better! (We even made them pose for a picture so they are also part of our memory) you are all so blessed to have such an amazing team around you.

    The Flamenco Dancers!! They were a huge hit with everyone! They had everyone dancing and involved, what an amazing two people they are! Again, we would definitely recommend, we cannot wait to visit rebate for a meal and see them all over again!

    Lastly, Damien, you are an amazing person! Everyone knew every song you played the entire night, I danced for 3 hours straight, I didn’t sit down once between the meal finishing and us leaving Rebate, but for that reason, I hold you responsible for my feet feeling like they were bleeding the next day haha.

    All future brides, my god, I’m so jealous you all have it yet to come, you all picked a venue where dreams are fulfilled, enjoy and embrace every second and take as many pictures as possible to have memories of every single last detail (we already have hundreds and that doesn’t even include any that Andrew has taken!) We are already planning on renewing our vows in 10 years time! 🙂

    So once again, Dawne, Hazel, Sarah, Andrew, Damien and all the waiters, coach and wedding car drivers, cake maker (I could go on forever) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! you are all angels and we hold a special place in our hearts for every single one of you!

    Chris and I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us. Yesterday was the best day of our lives Everything was absolutely perfect from start to finish. You made the wedding planning process a breeze and we will be forever grateful to you.

    The whole day was fabulous from start to finish. The church was incredible – Eddie conducted the ceremony with an excellent mix of seriousness and humour. The flowers and decorations were absolutely breathtaking. You were absolutely right it did feel like the Vatican – especially when Maria blew us all away singing Nessun Dorma. 

    The canapés and cocktails on the terrace were fantastic – we especially loved the food tasting stations and live cooking. The attention to detail was amazing.

    The food was out of this world – Chris and are both food lovers and along with our guests we ate the most amazing dishes in our wedding dinner. The steak with truffle butter is still being talked about around the pool this afternoon.

    The waiting staff, Damian, Andrew and everyone else involved worked incredibly hard to make sure everything was perfect from start to finish and it really was. Not one person had an empty glass and no-one could believe the free bar – the are a few sore heads today as you can imagine.

    It really was a performance – the mariachi band and the flamenco dancers were such a highlight and really got everyone into the spirit.

    We can’t thank you enough. Our guests have said it was without a doubt the best wedding they have ever been to! We will definitely be talking about our special day for years to come.

    Lots of love, the new Mr and Mrs Parker Wills
