What part of your business are you most proud of?
We bought The Old Vicarage 15 years ago as a derelict building, we lived here without heating or basic amenities whilst we spent 2 years and every penny we had building our dream wedding venue. We're still striving for perfection and reinvest heavily in making sure our interiors have that 'wow' factor. At the start of 2020 we decided to invest over £100k in creating a stunning new Orangery, without any increase in capacity. We're very fortunate to have a fantastic team who share our values of self-improvement and are always prepared to go above and beyond to make your wedding simply perfect from start to finish.
