Wedding Reception

Perfect Place: Why this couple loved Flaxton Gardens


Why did you choose this venue?

“So many reasons – the views, the intimacy, the rustic and elegant look, but what sold us the most was the beautiful star ceiling. It was so special to have our first dance underneath twinkling stars. The staff also contributed to our final decision; they were so down to earth and had a genuine interest in what we wanted.”


Did the menu influence your decision?

“Yes, it did. We had lunch after our initial meeting and were very impressed with how many options there were. Tim is a real foodie and I knew we were onto a winner when he commented on how great his meal was.”


Tell us about your decorations…

“The venue has such a large range of decorations, which we used to create our overall theme. We added flowers, a few photo displays and my clever husband made light-up marquee love letters that were a real focal point to our bridal table.”


What’s the most unique thing about the venue?

“Definitely the star ceiling and all the areas around the venue for your ceremony.”


Did the venue help you resolve any problems?

“We decided to move our wedding date a few months after making our booking, but Flaxton Gardens easily transitioned us to a new date with no stress or complications. Our day was simply perfect; we had no hiccups and everything ran really smoothly.”


What’s the best piece of advice the venue gave you?

“They reminded us that the day was about Tim and me.”


What’s the one thing you’d tell other brides-to-be considering this venue?

“Don’t hesitate! There’s very little you have to do to create the perfect ceremony and reception – and at the end of your perfect day you get to stay in beautiful on-site accommodation.”


The most memorable feedback from your guests?

“They loved the beautiful scenery and the fact that the unique venue really reflected us as a couple.”


Your most precious memory of the day?

“I loved seeing Tim see me for the first time, and hearing his vows.”
