They will be happy to discuss how to best select the dishes you and your guests would like. They will advise and listen attentively as they want this to be as memorable to them as it will be to you.

Our Bunting wedding
Me and my partner met in 2009 at the age of 15 and when we got engaged in 2018 we booked our beautiful wedding venue straight away. Unfortunately our 2021 wedding was postponed due to Covid so looking forward to our wedding in 2022. We cant wait to get married at our venue. It is quirky and elegant.
