Couldn’t do enough

So pleased I chose this beautiful venue, could not be happier with how our day turned out, the staff could not have been more helpful (even with a last minute meal change) cannot thank them enough (especially Izzy who helped to keep all the children occupied)

Wedding Day

We got married in January of this year. The Church were so accommodating. We got everything we hoped for and more! Our day was made so special and nothing was too much trouble for the team! We even had 2 guests show up who weren’t invited until the evening who showed up for the day and when we approached the team it was very quickly adjusted and you wouldn’t have even known! The food wad to die for!!!! The homemade pizzas were chefs kiss 😀 we had the most wonderful day and night!
