The elegant Cloisters and tranquil Archangel Garden provide perfect backdrops for beautiful, memorable wedding photographs to cherish forever. Our talented in-house chefs source high quality, local food to create dishes that are cooked with love and served with soul. This passion spans the entire team and reflects the unique quality of The Monastery itself. Every aspect of your special day is carefully planned and executed so that all you have to do is arrive in style – and enjoy every moment. Your love can really help make the world go around, as every event held here supports our charitable projects with the local community.
