    We had our wedding here in January and it was just the best day! We chose the venue because of the stunning grounds - we loved that … More we could have the whole day at the venue as there were lots of beautiful spots for taking photos too. What really made our day special was Caryn, Trevor, Pam and the rest of the team. At every step of the way, they went above and beyond to make things really easy for us. We didn't have to lift a finger! Our guests all commented on how awesome the team were too! The food was definitely a highlight. We had canapés on the lawn followed by a delicious buffet out by the the pool. Everything was tasty and beautifully presented. We highly recommend using Tabula Rasa as your next event venue!
