The food supplied by Athelhampton House was delicious and the whole event was expertly organised. We had the run of the beautiful 15th Century manor house and the fire was lit in the great hall which made us all feel welcome. A warm thanks to Laura and her team, who looked after us all and made the evening a success.
The music was provided by Arioso Quartet, a string quartet based in Dorchester. Their masterful repertoire was very appropriate for the venue and added greatly to the ambience of the occasion. Beautiful music for a beautiful location!
Thanks also to David Morphew for memorialising the event with his talented photography. See examples of his work at Photography by David Morphew and Rob Goodwin of Champagne Films who also filmed the event.
Last but not least, very grateful thanks to our generous sponsors.
