Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
There was a wedding a few years ago where the couple wanted to include all the things they love (most of which were animals), and make it a weekend their guests would never forget!
They had pre-wedding games, bride's team V groom's team, on the Friday followed by his and hers pre-wedding dinners. On the wedding day they had a polo match for guests to watch as well as a show by the Devil's Horsemen and a petting zoo! They had an incredible Chockwokydoodaa cake featuring all of their pets and their boat.
It was great to see the couple take full advantage of everything the Estate has to offer and adding their own eccentric style!
