Michael and Tony Woods have restored this beautiful church into a fabulous venue available for many things including weddings. Agreed, its main purpose now that it’s not a place of worship is a live music venue, restaurant and bar – however, it does turn very easily into a beautiful wedding space. The complimentary benefits of its main usage are of course that you get great sound for your band, a large selection of superior alcohol and also fabulous food. They have won lots of awards for quality and being dog friendly and so on. It just all sounds like soo much fun.
