My husband and I fell in love with this venue from the second we first saw it. It was perfectly landscaped and had such a beautiful romantic outlook, that we knew it was perfect for us. Sofie and David made the whole wedding planning seamless and the wedding ceremony and reception went perfectly on the day. The food was delicious and the portions were very generous. All our guests loved the beautiful venue and complimented us on the amazing food and friendly staff. We are so glad we chose Windmill Gardens for our special day. It was definitely a day to remember!
