If you would like to discuss your plans further we would be delighted to hear from you, or perhaps pop over for a look around! It would be lovely to meet you and have the opportunity to discuss how The Manor could be part for your unique special day. If you're able to send me further details, date/month/year in mind, guest numbers, civil ceremony or church service, evening band or disco? I would be delighted to put together a sample quote for you. We look forward to hearing from you
