We married at the Cloisters on 14th May 2019. Although it looks a little different without the old pepper tree, it is still a beautiful, serene place for a wedding.

To be honest I was a wee bit disappointed in the cloisters. There was a couple who’d just got married which was nice to see. We couldn’t get into the church as there was another wedding taking place in there.

There's a lot of rennovation going on at the moment. You can't really see beyond the covered fencing that goes around there. This is as of April 2019. I've no idea how long it is going to be rennovated for but there's nothing to see...More
