A magical, self contained world
Such a versatile space with great service from the staff. Inside the courtyard, you are enclosed and kept away from the wind and weather which took some of the stress away and there are so many places to have photos taken.Sent on 01/11/2019
Unlike other venues, there was no hard sell or hidden costs-highly recommended.
