As guardians of the precious 1290 Chapel, that is at the heart of the 35-acre estate, the company attributes its success to a combination of innovative strategies, a passionate team, and a strong focus on couples and their guests' satisfaction. It's been instrumental in converting the previous residential home into a luxury destination wedding and events venue with onsite accommodation and a helicopter pad.

The large purpose-built Thorne Barn can comfortably accommodate up to 150 guests for a sit-down meal, ensuring no one is left out from sharing the couple's special day. Additionally, couples can extend their celebration by inviting an additional 50 evening guests, making sure the celebrations continue well into the night.
