Please note: due to the extreme trading conditions brought on by the coronavirus pandemic and continued restrictions indefinitely affecting our wedding & event trade, the Directors have made the difficult decision to cease trading at the end of our current lease period which would renew on 1st July 2021. As a result, we are unable to accept bookings after 30th June 2021.
