Half Acre was the perfect venue for our wedding, and had both our ceremony and reception in the glasshouse. We enjoyed having the greenery of the courtyard for photos and fresh air, with a semi separate bar area for the dance floor. All the staff we communicated with were fantastic, and on the day everyone was friendly yet professional. It was also helpful having smaller details such as candles included, and the space really speaks for itself so you can save money on additional decor. Could not recommend them more!

Great venue, food and staff, residential zoning means music volume is heavily controlled which is annoying if you have any live music.
