" it was all perfect"
‘What an amazing venue, nestled in the beautiful Botanical Gardens in Victoria Park. It was the perfect setting for our wedding. From the walk across the bridge and up the ‘aisle’ to the atmosphere in the Temple, it was all perfect’

Thanks again from the both of us!!
Many thanks for all you did for us on Saturday (and before!!) as you really helped in giving us the best day ever for our wedding. We both enjoyed every minute of it and all our guests were stunned with how beautiful the temple and the gardens are and the way in which you set them up.
