hat was one of the memorable weddings you have had at Summergrove Estate? The wedding that stands out the most for us was our first ever same-sex wedding. We did things a bit differently and had the wedding reception first, followed by the ceremony at midnight. Emotions were high and the excitement nearly lifted the roof off the barn as we started their ceremony. The couple wasn’t able to legally get married until after midnight, the celebrant finished the ceremony earlier than expected, everyone sat around in suspense waiting for the clock to strike midnight! It was such a surreal and beautiful moment to be involved in and we were literally waiting for the world to change!
