a day to remember

A stylish sanctum that seamlessly blends a high-end contemporary look with a laid-back and welcoming approach,

Cave is not just a venue, and getting married here is a truly holistic experience where you and your guests take center stage.

You will relax, eat, celebrate and sleep better than you ever have before; there really is nowhere quite like it.

A blank canvas to create your own day

Our beautiful pergola is a magical setting for your ceremony, every part of which can be tailored with our dedicated wedding team to reflect your personality as a couple.

Whether you want whimsical and romantic, or vibrant and modern, your wish is our command. After saying ‘I do’, our magnificent marquee is a completely private area and the ideal space for you and up to 100 guests to be wined and dined.

In line with our ethos that a wedding should be all about faultless food, fantastic company and a joyful shared experience, the marquee is a blank canvas for you to decorate however you choose; anything goes!

Captured moments that last a lifetime

Without question, one of the most important parts of your wedding experience is the photos, and fear not, we have you covered.

With 250 acres of incredible nature including existing orchards and established fruit trees, the grounds are an Instagrammers’s dream and a heavenly backdrop against which your professional photos will shine.

Not your average wedding breakfast

Created by our group executive chef John Bingley and his wider team, our wedding menu options harness Cave’s indulgent deep flavours, unique smoking methods and offer delicious dishes from every corner of the globe.

Forget stuffy, sit down three course dinners, the main wedding menu is an exciting sensory journey delivering huge international flavours from Korean Cowgirl and Firepit style menus created specifically for weddings that everyone will love getting involved in.

The antithesis of a traditional wedding menu, its all about pairing incredible flavours with fine-dining flair, and ultimately sharing an impressive feast with your friends and family.

Evening guests are not forgotten either, with hog roasts and grazing charcuterie board options available.

Some Kind Words

“Where to start….. from the moment we turned up on the Thursday until we drove out of the car park on the Saturday, it was something special. I could try and name everyone who made our day (few days!!) so perfect but it was honestly every single person who we met, from reception to the deck for dinner and breakfast to the bar on the evening and the chefs on the night, was 100% the best food anyone has ever had at a wedding, and everyone has messaged to say so! Just everyone there, thank you”.

Some Kind Words

“Words cannot express how grateful we are to you and all your team at Cave for making our daughters wedding so special, from the first day we sat with you to discuss details, right up to the moment they left for their honeymoon in the evening, everything was carried out with kindness, care and professionalism. We have had so many lovely comments from their guests, about the food, how lovely the staff were and how pretty the room looked.”
