'In a league of it's own'
An absolute gem of a wedding venue. The Guildhall has all the history and beauty of a church, yet is welcoming to all. The setting is perfect and as we were lucky enough to have a warm and sunny spring afternoon, we just couldn't have asked for more. All our guests were blown away by how beautiful it looked and as a backdrop for photos- Wow! I understand this hasn't been a wedding venue for too long, so we were really lucky to stumble across it and the Laura and the team were incredibly helpful from the start and couldn't do enough. I imagine this will become a very popular venue, very quickly and it rightly deserves to be, as it is in a league of it's own. Thank you for making our special day absolutley perfect.
