    A Dream Venue and a Dream Team

    We couldn't have wished for a better place for our wedding. Tani and the team have made the whole process of planning our wedding so easy. They have helped us an guide and every step of the way with a kindness and patience I've never seen before.
    On the day of the wedding I was able to be completely relax and enjoy my day as I had complete trust in them and indeed everything was perfect.
    It also helps that the place is stunning and they have packages to help with catering!
