The Dress Code

Simple answer - there isn't one!
There is no dress code as such for our special day, however summer attire and sensible shoes would be advisable!

The Photographs

Please feel free to take as many pictures as you wish and upload them to facebook etc. We have an official photographer, but only until the wedding breakfast so not the food, speeches, cake cutting and first dance! We would love to see your pictures of these!


The Menu

We want to ensure that you are comfortable and well fed so please advise us of any dietary requirements as the venue is full able to cater for these.
Please indicate on your reply card your choices for the wedding breakfast and return this by our RSVP date. All options are gluten free.

The Gift List

We've been together quite a while,
with all our pots and pans

And as we don't need homely gifts
we have another plan!

We know it's not traditional
And not the way it's done

But rather than a wedding list
We'd love a bit of sun!

So if you would like to give a gift
And send us on our way.

A donation to our honeymoon
would really make our day!

Please visit our web page below to see how you can help make our honeymoon the trip of a lifetime.


All of the day's celebrations will take place at High House Farm Brewery. A word of warning - this is in a remote location - if your Satnav has issues with the postcode the co-ordinates are: N55degrees01.363' W001degrees55.283'
