Absolutely Magical Wedding at Dane Estate!
What really made this work though was the staff - especially Devanna and Piers. Devanna was such a professional - incredibly communicative and seasoned, she made all the venue coordination so so easy for us. Piers helped us have such a delicious menu throughout the celebration - he made great suggestions and was very accommodating for our requests.
We could not have asked for a better venue and supporting team. We are so grateful that we were able to have such a special day at the Dane Estate =)
The Dane Estate: A Gorgeous Venue That's Easy to Work With
Devanna was such a pleasure to work with over the last two year in helping plan the wedding, and ensure everything and everyone was where it/they needed to be!
For one final note, the venue was beautiful and required such minimal decoration, so a great place for any wedding DIYers (like ourselves) who are looking for a gorgeous venue at a great value!
