Reception not very helpful! Wouldn't book a taxi for us. The woman from the staff who was our witness appeared sulky and as if she would have been glad to be anywhere than having to witness our wedding. We were asked for our payment from the minister two minutes before our ceremony! There was just the two of us as we wanted a quiet wedding but at times I felt we were left alone too much. The bar manager wasn't helpful when we asked about food served there, we were told we HAD to go to the restaurant as if he couldn't be bothered to explain. It costs nothing to smile!
Colin Carpenter the photographer was very nice and put us at our ease. He spent a lot of time getting our photographs set up etc.
The chapel looked beautiful and the ceremony was really lovely. The Revd. Jamieson was very nice and the wedding service was just the way we wanted it to be.
The room we stayed in was clean, comfortable and we enjoyed using the complimentary toiletries and coffee, tea and biscuits.
The venue is beautiful, peaceful and scenic.
