Hear from our guests

Just married! Petrina helped me organise it all and it was magic!  We married in the tiny church down the road and came back to the cottages for an amazing reception…..The table setting was  bush themed and absolutley beautiful.  Everyone said this was the most fantastic wedding they have ever been to!  Thanks so much to everyone at Clover Cottage; you made my dream a reality!
