It really was a fabulous experience overall. Weddings are obviously really stressful – and when it came to the reception, I knew I didn’t have to worry about anything at all! From start to finish, the staff were fabulous - guiding you through everything involved. The location is hard to beat, especially for sunset pictures, and the heritage building is gorgeous. Great staff that went above and beyond on the day, fab food which all of our guests raved about - was just an awesome place for our reception. Truly memorable

Many additional free. e.g. using projectors. Need to escalate to the manager in order to get more storeroom space
