We had our wedding in April this year and could not have wished for anything more perfect. I could cry thinking about the fact that it is all over. From the moment we saw the venue we knew it was very 'us'. It is not your typical hotel and stay-over type wedding, I would say it is rustic and has a barn type feel to it. My mum and I spent a lot of time over the year leading it up to buying things to use to dress the venue. That's the great thing about it - you can decorate it exactly to your own tasting.
We arrived very early to set up and I thought it would be really stressful but it was an amazing day and Vikki and Jason were amazing. We met with them and they literally knew every little thing that was going to happen on the big day - it really put me at ease. The staff there all helped out and the venue looked beyond amazing.
The actual day itself was unbelievable. My bridal party and I stayed at the Nearby Primrose lodge (which is perfect and the owner is amazing, and you can have the whole place to yourself), I was 20 minutes late for the ceremony (!!!) but Vikki was very calming and knew how to deal with the situation and luckily it was all great. The actual day ran smoothly and Vikki and her staff were always there when we needed them. The food was gorgeous and everyone agreed, as we chose big sharing platters but you can have what ever you want!
Everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever been to (perhaps everyone says that - I don't know). It was for us anyway and the photos are unbelievable, which says a lot about the beautiful grounds. We all camped at night in big bell tents , which was even better because we carried the party on and then all had breakfast in the morning and didn't leave until about 3:30 the next day. I was obviously heartbroken when I left.
From booking until the day itself, Vikki and Jason were in touch all the time and answered every question and never once made me feel like I was a Bridezilla - which i'm sure at times, I probably was. I also felt that the overall cost of the venue was great compared to other venues that we had looked at, especially since you have it for 3 days! The only one downside was that because the place is so big and spread out across two rooms, at night it felt quite empty because everyone was spread out - that's no ones fault but it is just something worth baring in mind. I would 100% recommend this place to any one. I want to do it all again.
