She described it as “the perfect setting for our ceremony and very intimate, the acoustics were like the Albert Hall.” Katy, who married engineer Aled Jones, 37, added: “The outdoor forest garden is an ideal setting for a champagne reception and the restaurant and bar are perfect for the wedding breakfast and dancing the night away. “We loved every part of our wedding. The food was beautiful, organic and local and all our guests commented on how smoothly the day went, they really enjoyed being in such a bright and natural space.”
