Wedding Butler Service Feedback | Molteno wedding

Posted on: January 5th, 2017 by Butler Academy No Comments

Dear all,

My wife and I got married just outside Stellenbosch on the 29 October, and your Butlers were in service at the wedding.
Both of us have wanted to say how amazed and impressed we were, with the outstanding service. From beginning to end, the butlers were absolutely impeccable and on-the-ball. So many guests remarked on it too. We all felt extremely well-cared for and special in their hands, and so we had to write to say this.
Bad service is noticeable; Good service is often not noticed; utterly outstanding service is REALLY noticeable.
Thank you!

Steven & Maureen Molteno
