Wherever you choose to have your ceremony, you may wish to spend an hour or two making the most of our extensive outdoors space afterwards. Guests can mingle in the gardens and courtyard and enjoy canapes and champagne, and you can head off with your photographer to get some beautiful outdoor portraits.
