Wonderful day with wonderful people

Everything about our day was just as we hoped for, and Sarah and Nina and the whole catering team were so helpful and positive. We were able to set up the day before, the catering service was exceptional and the food was delicious. All our friends said how personal it all felt, and how friendly all the staff were. Both venues (St As and Malthouse) looked beautiful and we were able to have lovely photos taken in the grounds. There is also a lot of freedom to decorate and put your own personal stamp on things. Sarah saved the day, as our DJ pulled put two days before our wedding, and was able to sort us out with an amazing sound system. Would wholeheartedly recommend!
