We went to a outdoor wedding even though we have had amazing weather heeled shoes like most ladies like to wear on the soft ground is a bit of a issue. As soon as we arrived we were asked to wait to be let in the ceremony garden we wanted to take pictures of everyone coming in together their is lots of bread plastic boxes in stacks, we wanted to take some pictures near to gate but the host from the venue was very abrupt and rude, this happened again during our meal, giving a member of our table the wrong dish the card clearly stated the choice on the menu and argued saying it was wrong. Until he finally read the card and said we had one extra on the table well we were in our family group the table was set with all our names on so clearly not. WE really didn't like his attitude. I did have a hair in my lettuce prawn and cocktail and a fly in the bottled water, Its difficult at a wedding as you cannot make a fuss as you do feel grateful of the bride and groom to go to such expense on this celebration. However if we were out for dinner I would of complained. Toilets shabby and need cleaning and repainting, couldn't hear the service due to the farm animals, in the evening asked about hog roast and they did serve it but it was dry with no flavour. The disco was good but it was so hot they closed the door to outside off as private function / however windows was also closed it was a furnace so many people just had to be outside to keep cool. I didn't stay in the hotel I was a wedding guest so cannot comment on that. I am only rating the venue to help others when choosing their venue for one of the most important days of their lives, our family get together and to see our loved ones get married was lovely.
