After getting married at Whitby registry office we celebrated at Hetty & Betty with fish and chip afternoon teas. Although we were only a small group Lois and the team made it super special and I can’t thank them enough! The food was delicious and we’ll definitely be back for another fish and chip afternoon tea.
