“Great experience, I’m from Nottingham and researched for a balloon shop prior to my arrival for my sister’s wedding to get some balloons last minute as a surprise! The chap in the shop was so helpful and gave the best advice based on the theme of the wedding. My sister and her fiancé absolutely loved the balloons. Thank you so much- highly recommended “
