Wish we could do it all again!
We had a very special day thank you. Wish we could do it all again! The ceremony went beautifully and the staff were very helpful indeed. The registrars were fantastic too. Thank you for adding the bunting and laying out all the chairs for us, the bandstand looked lovely.

We had the perfect wedding day at the Temple of Mi
We wanted something simple and relaxed but special and that's what we got. Sectioning off the part of the Botanical Gardens by the temple works so well and the magnolia blossoms are the prettiest background ever!
