We spend a lot of our time in fields so we know when we find the perfect backdrop for a couple to tie the knot. Our venue team will search high and low to find you your dream field (as crazy as it sounds your dream field is out there). You have to ask yourself some silly questions like; what is the land used for? Are you about to get married surrounded with cowpat? (with us, absolutely not) Is it flat– you don’t want to be tripping over in that dress!
