Ask a question
Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Totally enchanting and unique- so much charm. The steam engines, the 'white' Victorian carousel, the mechanical fairground organs, Juliana's Island, the lakes, the manor house, the Showmans wagon, 17th century oak barns, the on site luxury Glamping for 30 guests.
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Look at a few different venues in person to really get a true understanding of what you are looking for - you might not know until you view 'the one.'
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
The beautiful bride had gorgeous orange flamed hair and whilst discussing the choice of wedding colours, she joked with her groom that they must make sure nothing is orange as the colour of hair was enough ginger for everyone!! The groom took it upon himself to secretly make things 'ginger' to make a point that he LOVES her 'gingerness' and he can't get enough of the beautiful colour. They had orange cocktails (Aperol cocktails) as their reception drinks, orange napkins and the favours were male and female gingerbread men. Needless to say, the bride thought it was hilarious and very sweet of her groom. We were really moved by how simple little things can bring laughter.

Charming Quirky Idyllic Picturesque Majestic
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Wow, that is very difficult as one of our many highlights is the variety we offer for beautiful and artistic photo opportunities, what with the manor house, the lake, Julianna's island, the horses, the vintage steam engines, the showman wagon, the organs. However, if we had to choose one it would be the bride and groom riding the carousel with the sun setting behind, which transforms the sky into a glowing backdrop of stunning caramel and peach colours.
