The civil ceremony takes place within the fabulous Arts and Crafts Oak Inglenook which features decorative timber wall panelling and an elaborate arcaded overmantle, the perfect setting for unique and fabulous photographs.

The high ceiling of the Morning Room is exquisitely decorated with understated Victorian plasterwork and carved wooden cornices which are set off beautifully by the contemporary lighting chosen to flatter both the features of the room and its occupants.
