Ceremony music can be live or recorded, but most importantly it needs to be suitably loud for a proper entrance. Background music is great during the drinks reception and meal and then really go for it for the evening party with a band or disco. Your day… you decide.

There’s no on site accommodation but loads nearby. We have lists.

Yes, we do. We also have a customised pay bar.

Of course, but they need to be supervised. At all times. We have a lake, fish pond and duck pond. Enough said.

We have horses on site so dogs are not encouraged. If they are invited they need to stay on leads and any mess cleared up. It’s not much fun for them and they’d much prefer a dog sitter.

We don't allow dogs in the marquee, and cars are a problem in hot weather, so if you can, best leave them happier at home.
