From the moment we visited the hotel, we knew that it was our venue! The packages in the brochure were good, but we wanted to create our very own special day, Natalie created a package for specially for us and included everything we wanted. The day went too quick, it seems like such a blur! The Glasshouse is a beautiful venue, the staff are fantastic. A big thank you to Natalie for making our day perfect

Staff on the day were great, they could not do enough to help our guests while we were getting photos taken (which took a bit longer due to the rain!) Apart from the weather, our day was great, the carlton suite has beautiful views and the meal was lovely. Look forward to going back for our anniversary

It was exactly what we wanted, simple, elegant and stress free. Our ceremony was in the Henderson Gallery, followed by a small get together in the Observatory, the food was wonderful and we particularly enjoyed the champagne. Beautiful hotel, look forward to visiting again soon
