A per­fect place for peace, quiet, beauty as well as being acces­si­ble, with lit­tle dis­trac­tions and no one else around, for a wed­ding or pri­vate house party it really is the per­fect exclu­sive inti­mate venue.

Mary of Ash­ford Daly Pho­tog­ra­phy says, “The Upstairs Down­stairs styling to this pho­tog­ra­phy was easy to realize on the day we shot, given the design and detail­ing of the wed­ding dresses, along with the loca­tion and envi­ron­ment of this wed­ding venue decor and the dap­per and styl­ish tai­lor­ing, we were back in the 1930?s within a flash. Com­ple­mented with hair design, Art Deco acces­sories and make up befit­ting the era, our real client loved the over­all fin­ish­ing brought together by our expe­ri­enced wed­ding team.” The vin­tage one-off head piece ‘Sophie’ with a 1930’s brooch as the cen­tre­piece was sup­plied by Bespoke Tiaras by Sarah Roberts, Lon­don.
