An incredibly special, atmospheric, exclusive use, lovingly restored Norman Place of Worship. A Venue perfect for all couples who want to begin their tale of love and desire with an intimate Civil Ceremony, outdoor Blessing or Hand Fasting in the Stones, followed by a lavish wedding reception and dancing - a charming medieval venue that is akin to stepping into the most romantic mythological film set.
