On the day of your wedding, we will also have a team cleaning and sanitising all hot spot areas throughout the day and we have sanitising stations throughout our venue.
We understand that the restrictions lifting may be causing some concerns for our couples or guests and we want to ensure you that we are here to help to discuss any restrictions or social distancing that you may wish to keep in place for your special day.
We have heard from many of our couples that they, along with their immediate family and close friends are taking extra precautions to stay safe leading up to their big day. We think that this is great advice as we want you to have the day you have always wanted.
If you have any questions at all then please don’t hesitate to contact us. Should anything change with the government restrictions then we will certainly keep you updated.
We can’t wait to see you soon!

You can achieve this by live streaming your wedding to private groups or using video conference call-ins. If you would like to arrange this, please contact the team & we will be able to recommend some great solutions & companies to you.
