How can I pay off my wedding?
Your wedding is paid in three simple payments as listed on the contract. The initial $1,000.00 administration fee is a non-refundable deposit that holds the date for you and confirms your booking. We then require a 50%-part payment based on your approximate spend 3 months before your wedding. Your balance payment is based on your guaranteed number of guests provided 2 weeks before and is due one week before your wedding. We ask that you do not make any other payments or instalments. Keep the funds (and interest!) yourself.

Do you run two weddings at the same time?
We only allow one wedding ceremony per afternoon! We do have two separate and self-contained reception rooms, so we can operate two functions simultaneously. Each room has its own kitchen, bar, staff, and bathroom facilities. If there is another function booked the same night, arrival times will be staggered.
Aside from other functions, we also operate our cafe 7 days a week, closing at 3pm Fridays and Saturdays. So if your wedding is during the day, note that members of the public will be in the vicinity.
