It truly is lovely for a wedding ceremony! Envision the bride coming out of the old farmhouse double doors. Standing on the covered porch with her father, looking out over family and friends. Then venturing their way down the steps towards the groom. The front lawn has mature trees and a beautiful flower bed. My Daughter choose to use this space for her ceremony!
Old Vegetable Garden
This space use to serve as our family’s vegetable garden . The garden entry is covered with a lovely arbour. On each side of arbour is a beautiful flower garden. Old rail fences surround the garden. Lovely for a wedding ceremony. This space is also ideal for large weddings where a sit-down dinner is required. A party tent fits perfectly within the garden, (max tent size 40' x 60' / 120 - 130 guests seated rounds or rectangles, with buffet tables running down side).
An old horse paddock is a lovely spot for a wedding ceremony, underneath the trees, looking out to the fields. Can also be used as a larger tent space (max tent size 40' x 80' / 150 guests seated rounds, with buffet at either side of entrance).
