memory tables are a beautiful addition for loved ones who are no longer with us and makes them part of your special day

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Hidden in the wildflower meadow!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Wedding cake for the car ride home!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Apart from the sparkler send off that we arrange at the end. We have lots of Secret Garden bits and bobs that are free to use including a table plan easel, silver cake stand and knife, fancy dress box and a polaroid camera!
