Designing your own weddings

In order to maintain a wedding that portrays you as a couple it is important to understand what is important to you. Every couple is different and so every wedding should be different.

It is important to find a venue that can offer you enough flexibility to add your own personality to your wedding whilst still giving you the type of setting that best reflects your lifestyle.


We offer a range of wedding types and styles that you can use as a basis of your wedding, but remember that anything can be tweaked to customise your wedding to suit you better.

Here are the basics:

  • 2 HOUR MIDWEEK SIMPLE CEREMONY- For up to 24 guests
  • 4 HOUR MIDWEEK AFTERNOON - For up to 24 guests

  • 6 HOUR MIDWEEK ALL-INCLUSIVE - 6 -9 hours for up to 24 guests
  • FULL DAY MIDWEEK - Full day for up to 40 guests
  • HUMANIST WEDDINGS - Available in any of the above styles or add on an outdoor ceremony
