Otterly Fabulous
From start to finish the whole experience was without compare. The helpfulness of all the staff was above and beyond from seeing the venue, choosing the food to the actual day. Tailoring the day to our desires and needs never seemed too much of a hassle. Everything was well prepare and they happily assisted us put our final personal touches. The day was organised and ran smoothly leaving us relaxed and able to enjoy our time. The food was great and everyone commented that it was the best wedding

Book your wedding here, you won't be disappointed
From start to finish the day was perfect and everything went according to plan. Talking about planning, Kimberley was amazing and was always on hand before the big day to chat about what we wanted from food to timings. There wasn't anything that couldn't be done. We got lucky with the weather on our day so managed to get lots of gorgeous photos of the grounds and even if it were raining there was still lots of amazing photo opportunities inside the venue - particularly the main ceremony room.

It was a wonderful day in a spectacular setting
I was Mother of the groom at the above wedding and just wanted to send my personal thanks to all who were involved in helping us have such a great time. It was a wonderful day in a spectacular setting and must have taken a lot of hard work from a lot of people. I would like to say particular thanks to Alan, ( for sorting out the cake for me), and to Darren and Taylor for generally helping me out, but especially for their encouragement and help in preparing a special little surprise for the bride on her wedding morning. It made a special day even more special. Thanks so much to all. Lesley
