Was in the Marquee down near the Homestead. Great views looking out over the hills and with the average weather worked great as a windbreak and contingency ceremony location

The briars were very easy to deal with especially when things didn’t go to plan and things had to be changed. They were very lovely and helped with anything we needed.
