After drinks, you and your guests can head to your marquee on the croquet lawn outside the Orangery. Built exclusively for you, your marquee makes it possible to design and tailor every element of your wedding reception. Their carefully chosen caterers will then serve your guests with a delicious wedding feast, including your own corkage free drinks. After dinner they welcome and encourage you to dance the night away until the early hours.
