Here is a full list of important things to consider when arranging your wedding venue and cateriing:

  • Included in the venue hire fee: Tables and chairs
  • Entertainment facilities: Bands and other entertainment are welcomed. We have a portable stage and and plenty of space for your dance floor.
  • Wedding fees. Talk to us about your requirements so we can provide a tailored quote.
  • Wedding venue staff. Our staff are very experienced and professional. We like to pride ourself on our flexibility, so we can adapt to your needs so your big day runs smoothly.
  • Wedding venue facilities. Our venue is suitable for guests with a disability, and we can provide appropriate seating for the elderly and/or young children.
  • Wedding guest accommodation. There is a great range of accommodation within easy access of Caroline Bay and our venue.
