“Vishal fell in love before we even visited – he had his heart set on it – and as soon as we visited we loved it! We saw how friendly the staff were – even met the owner Pat – who put my mind at ease when I was worried about it snowing! We both love nature, and the venue was so breath-taking that we made our wedding fit around the venue! It was the perfect wedding venue and once we had seen it – there was no going back.”

“When we arrived a day before the wedding it was a big deal for us because for some members of the family it was the first time they were meeting each other. So I thought it was a really nice idea to have a pyjama party so everyone would feel relaxed and at ease and I saw my family playing pool with Vishal’s so it was nice to see everyone mingling and relaxed”.
