Main Church

Grand, imposing, beautiful. The traditional ceremony choice as well as options for dinner and reception.

The White Hall

The creative bride’s choice, a crisp white palette with lots of natural light. A blank canvas to input your own styles and traditions.

Side Pergola

A stunningly atmospheric, outdoor area. Socialise with family and friends, whilst enjoying cocktails and canapés. This area is a great entertaining area for a smaller party or a step away area from the larger areas to mingle and relax.
