Gay and Hannah were amazing in helping us prepare for our big day. The location was amazing however there are limited options when it comes to wet weather backup plans. Luckily our day remained dry, but Marquees and the balcony area are really the only options.

Beautiful location and such a beautiful set up. It was simple but elegant with beautiful gardens. The mansion at night time was stunning and offered perfect photo opportunities. Highly recommend.

The venue is really beautiful, especially with the pool terrace it's like you're in your own little world. Such a gorgeous property for photos which was perfect as we didn't have to leave. Food was incredible and the staff were so attentive.
