I must comment on your fantastic service for my late order. Even the adverse weather conditions did not stop my delivery getting to me.

Excellent service, Excellent company, Excellent product. I will recommend you to everyone who has a wedding to attend or special anniversaries this coming year as I think these make a perfect gift for those special occasions. I am going to ask my nearest and dearest for the framed embroidery crests for my husband and I, they will look perfect in my living room.

I look forward to being in contact next year with more orders and will make as many recommendations as possible.
