Superb, couldn’t have asked for a better venue
The Orangery is a stunning setting for a ceremony. It’s bright and has great acoustics. We were also given the flexibility to have the ceremony outside or in a marquee.
The estate is immaculate and has plenty of space for families and wedding party to stay (we had 25+ and room left over!).
Kim is a wonderful host and super organized. No request is too small and she really does go out of her way to make sure the day runs smoothly (even to the extent of gathering weather reports so we were fully prepared!).
We had a wonderfully special time at Arniston for our wedding and wish it every success in the future.
