Best day EVER
Venue Service

By Emi and Beatrice Young, on 24 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Sep 2019

Such a lush venue, beautiful sunset!!! The perfect romantic space to celebrate tying the knot. Stunning views out onto the sea, not too big and not too small!!! We loved the fairy lights, and the DJ was fantastic! He played our favourite song at our request. Ed Sheeran was played all night long! The Marine team were so great at helping make sure we had the most amazing day! So accommodating and were happy to celebrate alongside us whilst still being wonderfully professional.

A day to be remembered!

Our Great Nephew had his wedding ceremony here. We had a 3 course meal and evening buffet which was excellent from their catering partner. The sea views were perfect for photographs, the bar was good, and it also had a big outside area for sitting. The children played on the beach. The whole day was more than you could have wished for.

Extraordinary seaside location
