The area has been designed with huge attention to detail from the silk-lined walls and leather sofas to the fabulous lighting and black starlit ceiling. In the evening, part of the fun is to turn down the lights (which can be themed to match the colour scheme), turn up the music and the haze machine and party.

The Kesgrave Hall team will run the day with huge attention to detail allowing the wedding party to relax and enjoy their special day.

Photo opportunities abound in the upper garden which is dedicated to weddings, parties and events in the Hangar.
