The bride to be was chuffed to bits with the day we planned at the Elizabethan style Manor House we hired for the day! It was a beautifully picked setting with lots of greenery, outside space, wood cladded dining room and heated outdoor pool, which fitted the bride and overall vibe down to a tee! The afternoon tea looked beautiful set up! ☕️🍰 and we opted to include an etiquette class in our day package and it was extremely funny, energetic and inclusive of all 19 hens! We had a piano player in the room as well which was a perfect accompaniment to the tea and atmosphere. Everyone keeps talking about the amazing day they had and how beautiful the afternoon tea and Manor House setting was! The booking process was friendly, easy and we felt that all of our needs were met, and Kim-Lin did her best to suit our plans! Thank you again!read moreHelen Savery2019-06-27T09:33:12+0000We had a surprise Charleston class for our Hen! All 11 of us took part!
