Wow, wow, wow. What can I say about this stunning venue. We were blessed enough to see the place before they started refurbishment right through to our wedding day. It was the venue I was looking for an then some, we had so many people comment on how unique and stunning the venue was and that the service was amazing. Even with the biggest bar I have ever seen there was enough staff that everyone felt attended to.

High quality food and the service was spectacular. The canapes and drinks were brought around in good timing to suit the cocktail party and fit around changes that we made on the night. Awesome service, beautiful historic venue.

  • Is there a difference in pricing depending on the time of year, day of the week?
  • Do you have a preferred caterer or is there flexibility on this?
  • What is the venue capacity for both a  standing and seated wedding?
  • What time must the wedding end?


When's the best time to do the champagne tower?

We'd love to do a champagne tower at our wedding - when do you suggest fitting it in the formalities/timeline?

The Trust

The Champagne Tower is bound to be a focal point for your celebration so it’s crucial to decide when you want this to take centrestage! Many couples opt to jump right into the fun, hustling from their ceremony straight into cocktail hour where they’re popping bottles and pouring like a boss. Others however, save this moment for their grand entrance into the reception! Picture this - cascading into your reception,, your loved ones hooting and hollering as you do, and landing where the Champagne Tower awaits you. With the spotlight on you two, you take that bottle of Moet and get pouring! That’s not quite your flavour? How about making the cake cutting more of a magical moment with the addition of a powerful pour alongside it? The options are endless!


What's the difference between wedding venue coordinator and a wedding planner?

Hello. I'm wondering, what's the difference between what a wedding venue coordinator does and a wedding planner? And does the venue coordinator do styling or is that separate?

The Trust

There is a big difference between a venue coordinator and a wedding planner! 

A venue coordinator will be responsible for handling venue-related things on your wedding day, including heating and cooling, keeping the bathrooms fully stocked, and overall ensuring the venue is kept in good condition throughout the event. They won’t be responsible for your event running on time or working with any supplier questions or issues that may come up.

A wedding planner, however, is there to run your wedding from start to finish! They will take your run sheet and follow it as gospel to ensure your day runs smoothly and no aspect is missed, including looking after you two lovers, your VIP guests, and dealing with all suppliers. A wedding planner eliminates any and all stress from your wedding day and in the lead up to it.
