Please fill in the RSVP form by 1st November at the latest

Can I bring my children?

We love your little ones but unfortunately our venue cannot accommodate children

Can I bring a plus one?

We love your plus ones, too! But unfortunately we cannot accommodate extras beyond those stated on your invitation

I have a serious allergy - what do I do?

There is space for you to declare this on your RSVP. Please ensure you do this so we can prepare for you.

What is the dress code?

We want you to feel relaxed! No tuxes necessary, but please no jeans either. Since the wedding is February, whilst it will be toasty warm inside, it's worth bringing a coat.

Is the venue accessible?

Partially. Please let us know ASAP if you will need access to disabled features so we can put things in place to accommodate you.

Can I take photos?

The big question! As you can imagine, photography is ✨very✨ important to Josie.

We have spent a long time choosing a very talented photographer and so we'd prefer no photos during the ceremony please while she works her magic. It will harsh the vibe to see lots of phones in her pictures!


We will be having a Google Drive that you will be able to use to upload any/all photographs you take. Please use it - we'd love to see all of your shenanigans and 'behind the scenes' moments. Press the button below to access it!
