We have preferred suppliers we can suggest who can be relied on to cater for all your choose what you want, and therefore you control your budget. If you are looking for an individually unique wedding, we can make it happen!

You will have exclusive use of the house, gardens, and ample parking. All your suppliers will have time to set up, while you’ll have plenty of time to relax with family and friends.
