This is a magical place to get married

We were the very first couple to get married in the cave - on July 8th, 1996 - and it has remained a very special memory for us. We go back each year on our anniversay, and wash our rings in the lake inside the cave. They have made the cave even more beautiful since we married there. It is a really special, spiritual place, and an excellent venue for a wedding.

This is a magical venue.

The venue for the ceremony is amazing. You enter the large vaulted cavern walking between 2 waterfalls and make your was up the candle lit path to the registrar's area, with music (of your choice) playing & everyone waiting in the seating area. The walls are lit to keep the "cavey" feel. Although the path up to the cave complex is reasonably steep, it's all easily accessible with good paths throughout & decent lighting. The paths are a bit wet inside the cave, so no train!
There's also plenty of photo-opportunity places outside, with a view over the valley.
It's a great place for a small ceremony, as it only takes about 20 people.
All in all was had a marvellous day & couldn't have chosen a better place to have it.
