    Wonderful wedding weekend

    We had the most magical wedding weekend. Tall Johns helped moving our wedding date forward due to a change of circumstances and couldn't of helped more when we needed it. Archie was fantastic with all the guests and Liza cleaning up the mess we made with the dry flowers. The rooms and barn were all fantastic, we've got so many memories from a lovely weekend and a special venue. Can't thank you enough!
