The bride, groom and wedding party will be in formal attire. We love all of you as you are so please come in whatever you feel the most comfortable to celebrate with us in. The general vibe will be cocktail attire/semi formal. Interpret that as you please, we're happy to have you. For the gals, some of the "terrain" will be uneven and grassy so plan your shoes accordingly!
Everyone can BYO to their cabins or off-site accommodation. This may only be consumed in your accommodation NOT at the venue.
The venue will have a cash bar available for as long as we are there, accepting cash, debit and all major credit cards.
