Making a booking:

A deposit equal to the Venue Fee is required when you finalise the date and request us to reserve that date for your Special Day. Once the deposit is paid, we will not accept another Function for your date and venue and therefore the deposit is not refundable, since we will be turning other requests away for that venue and date – as such it is a commitment by both parties. Fifty percent of the food bill is required 4 weeks prior to the wedding and the full payment of the reception and all costs involved is required two weeks prior to the wedding and these payments are also not refundable if the wedding is cancelled within those weeks. Cheques are not accepted. Like all other businesses, we also have inflation related price increases. Weddings are often booked a year or longer in advance. So the prices you view today, might have gone up by the date of your actual wedding. Please keep in contact with us to see if there has been a price increase.
