Cancellation Policy for Confirmed Weddings
Due to the nature of our business, the prospective Bride & Groom generally book their venue up to a year and in some cases, 18 months out from their wedding day. In the event of a change in circumstances, it is unlikely that we would be able to successfully rebook the venue should future wedding plans change.
For this reason, we operate under a strictly Non-Refundable/Non Transferable Policy for any monies paid towards a wedding.
