  1. Hi there,

    Just wondering if 80 guests is the max for venue hire for a wedding? I’ve seen websites that say 80 and some that say 100.



  2. Hi – my son got married in the UK last Aug and is returning home in March for a NZ post wedding celebration with his Kiwi friends and family. Please wold you let me know ASAP price and availability for hiring the venue on Sat 17th March?
