“Although we work in a Victorian building, we don’t operate with a Victorian approach. We had very diverse weddings over the years and love seeing people from all sorts of backgrounds celebrate their lives. It’s incredibly satisfying to give someone the best day of their life.”Sue Varney, Sales & Events Supervisor
