Frequently Asked Questions
Can the venue cater to my diet?
Yes the venue can cater for all kinds of diets, including vegetarian and vegan. They will also cater for intolerances like soya and gluten.
When you RSVP you can request specific dietary requirements.
Is there a dress code?
Cocktail, jacket and tie!
It is a formal event, so we would prefer smart dress, suits, ties, and no jeans / trainers please. Think formal but fun, bling, boujee, cocktail, dressy, glamourous - whatever makes you feel amazing, and the more colourful the better!
The bottom line is we want you to dress comfortably - we want you to enjoy the day.
Can I take photos during the ceremony?
We request that you don't take photos until the ceremony is finished. We have a professional photographer who will capture the ceremony, and advise when you can take photos at the end. However, the rest of the day - please take as many photos as you like, and be sure to share them with us afterwards.
Can I bring my children?
Your children are most welcome to attend. It is a long day and we hope you'll be with us for as long as the day allows.
Some guests have already said they will bring their children to the wedding, then arrange to have them picked up early evening by their grandparents, so they can enjoy the evening with a few drinks.
Others have said they are leaving the kids with grandma and grandpa for the day / weekend so they can party.
If you are brining your children, please make sure you RSVP with their details as well as yours.
Again, we want you to really enjoy the day so whatever you prefer to do is fine with us!
