Could not fault a single thing

"What a fantastic venue for a wedding, my daughter and son-in-law got married in October 2018. Organisation was fantastic, led by Katie, and I could not fault a single thing. Katie’s commitment to making sure the wedding ran really smoothly was above and beyond what we could have expected. I would have no hesitation in recommending the venue, and above all, Katie. Thank you all so much for a wedding that ran to perfection.”
