A wedding - 24 February 2010
I recently hired some glassware for my sister-in-law's wedding, from the Petone branch. I dealt with Andie and she was such a lovely, helpful lady to deal with. She was extremely helpful, from helping me decide what glassware to choose, and helping me with my ideas about the design of the table arrangement.
I am one of those people who find it very hard to make decisions and I am so grateful to Andie for helping me with everything. She put my mind at ease about the table arrangement we had designed together. It was a load off my mind to have that sorted out; I could then concentrate on other wedding things!
Thanks so much Andie, I will definately use Carlton in the future.

Wishing you a great christmas and new year.
