"Lady Margaret’s Medieval Hall was undoubtedly the perfect choice for our wedding ceremony. The hall has an impressive history and will not fail to impress when you enter the building. It is simply charming and it even has its own bell which is rung at the end of the ceremony, such a wonderful finishing touch. There is a beautiful garden which allows for great photos before and after.
