Nottingham Forest Football Club
‘Myself and my wife got married at Nottingham Forest Football Club
recently. Throughout the whole process from choosing rooms to staging the
event to food, we were looked after with our best interests in mind. The team
there did a great job and made the day perfect and I would go to the NFFC
events team first if I was wanting to organise a big event like this again’
