    Beautiful & relaxed

    Tucked away from the busy down front area, but just a short walk from the ferry. This venue was more perfect than we could imagine. The views and venue itself offer a relaxed sense of feeling - just what you need and want on your wedding day. Affordable and easy to deal with as well. We couldn’t be happier with our choice.
