Highly recommend it!!

I was married here last September, the ceremony in the courtyard and reception in the Garden room. Everyone involved with Leonda was amazing!

The whole process was so easy and so professionally handled. Everything prior to and on the night was never too much trouble, and they know exactly what to do! The food was great, definitely get the ice cream station, what a hit!

We left via boat (organised by Leonda), and we had most of the guests at the wedding ask if we could do it all again the next week, they had so much fun! Jemma was our coordinator, and was brilliant. So warm, caring, professional and nothing was too much trouble.

The best place for a wedding!!

This is an incredible venue with amazing inclusions for the price you pay. If you are getting married, this is the best place to be, especially with the incredible staff who pay personal attention to your needs.
