FAQs (9)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We hosted an exclusive wedding a few years ago at Halloween. It was a usually wedding reception in the day and then before the evening reception started the guests went to get changed into costumes. The Bride and Groom hired face painters and even the staff were allowed to dress up. The bridal party even performed a 'flash mob' dance routine to Thriller by Micheal Jackson which was a great surprise for their guests.
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
You wont be able to please everyone - so don't try! Plan for the wedding YOU want, not a wedding that everyone else wants.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
A wedding we hosted a few months ago named their tables after their favourite cocktails. They provided mini mason jars with cocktails to correspond with the table names as wedding favours - great personal touch.
