Or looking for something very different?...

There are many places that we know of that havent been classed as a venue yet. They are private estates or land which could be used for a special couple. 

If you have a hotel, ruin, barn or just a field with lovely views, please contact us if you think weddings may be an avenue for you. We are more than happy to come and meet you and advise on the steps towards becoming a successful venue. We offer a coordination role which helps venues that either dont wish to host many weddings or dont have capacity for a wedding coordinator on the team.
