Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
The best weddings we have are when couples take the venue as 'exclusive use'. They really make the hotel their home for the duration of their event and use the canvas as their own, turning the venue into something so unique and beautiful. One particular wedding dressed both the front veranda and terrace courtyard steps with beautiful flowers, candles and fairy lights. In the evening it looked stunning.
