A beautiful rural setting plays host to this stunning golf course featuring modern facilities

The Venue – Wedding Ceremony

The building itself is quite modern and offers a variety of rooms to choose from. The light, spacious conservatory can be hired for a ceremony, reception drinks or the wedding breakfast. It has a patio area adjacent which is a pleasant environment for guests to mingle in the sunshine. If you would like a bright, happy occasion, this may be the room for you. Of course, being surrounded by windows, we can capture all of the emotions during the vows in light, airy photos.

The Venue – Wedding Reception

The upstairs function room is most popular for evening receptions because you have more control over the light to create a party atmosphere. It boasts a large area, suitable for around 150 guests as well as a balcony overlooking the golf course (stunning at sunset). There are lots of options for creating your ideal wedding day here.

The Grounds – Photo Opportunities

Based within a large golf course, the building is surrounded by stunning grounds for your photographs. The fountain near the patio area creates a fantastic backdrop for your group photos with family and friends so they don’t have to walk too far. Then you can take a ‘just married’ decorated golf cart for a spin to a beautiful, secluded location beside the lake for your portraits as a newly married couple.

The Verdict

This is a great wedding venue; it’s flexible in how it can be set up to suit your needs and offers a great variety of options. Although it’s in a rural location there is plenty of onsite parking and it has great hotel and spa facilities – you and your guests will be guaranteed to enjoy it. We would highly recommend going and seeing it for yourselves.
