You will have access to the venue from 11am on the morning of your wedding. If there is a wedding the day prior, access would be from 10am. Remember, delegation is the best thing about a wedding. Be sure to assign your friends and family to help set up on the morning of your wedding and we will of course also be on hand to help decorate the venue as you have requested.
You have completely flexibility on your table plan. If you wish, you can have a long top table or alternatively you may want a round table as your top table – either is fine with us. We can accommodate almost any configuration. The panoramic views make for the most picturesque backdrop.
Be sure to take some time over your table plan as family politics always get in the way … you thought picking the dress was hard, just wait until you do your table plan.
If you are looking for a more informal day, you do not need to have a sit- down meal and a full wedding breakfast set up. You may just want a couple of tables set up but no need for a table plan.
Whatever quirky ideas you have in mind we will make sure these become a reality on the day. You can decorate the venue however you wish however please be aware some decorations are fixed around the venue such as fairly lights and lanterns. Although… who doesn’t love fairy lights for a wedding?
Pinterest is a great way to gather new ideas and once you start a Pinterest board… it’s never ending!
