The Old Cheese Factory was so flexible, and the perfect backdrop (beautiful gardens, lovely old buildings, a great playground for the kiddies) for the our wedding. The staff were always ready to help when we could reach them, and very flexible as my fiance and I kept changing our plans.

The gardens are a beautiful place to get married in with plenty of space for guests. Would not recommend an indoor ceremony as the room is not the best but would definitely recommend the gardens. Staff were very friendly and easy to deal with.

We had our engagement party / surprise wedding at The Old Cheese Factory. I use to do pottery glasses there when I was in primary school, so it was special. It was really easy to book and organise, there was no fuss and no dramas.
