    - Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
    It was a wedding where the bride and groom had everything they desired to ensure they and their guests had a fun filled memorable all for a fantastic price. Envisage a wedding venue decorated with beautiful chair covers with neat colour coordinated bow sashes, matching table runners, quirky napkins picked especially to surprise the bride, beautiful centre pieces, table swags and a twinkling backdrop making for fantastic indoor photos. A beautiful wedding ceremony with carefully selected songs and readings followed by a couple chosen drink on arrival and stunning photos in and around the grounds of The Venue Ashbourne. The bride surprised the groom with a drive inn his favourite vehicle and they returned to a delicious home cooked 3 course meal chosen specifically by the couple, catering for vegetarians, gluten frees, children and the brides personal request. The meal was accompanied by decadent handmade chocolate favours made by our chocolatier head chef and a drinks packaged tailored to the bride and grooms taste. What followed was an afternoon and evening of complete entertainment with wedding singers, a caricaturist, bouncy castle, candy buffet, face painting and disco to name but a few. The evening guests were spoilt with a delicious buffet of homemade savoury treats. This magical day only came to an amazing total of £8000. Unbelievable value using our fabulous trusted wedding suppliers.
