I booked this as a surprise for my girlfriend. We recently got engaged on Halloween and I thought the hand fasting would be a lovely gesture for us to be blessed. Kacey and James are such an amazing lovely and friendly couple. They had the most romantic setting in a secluded area. There was a lovely fire pit going when we arrived and a picnic bench area to sit and enjoy some drinks. The views over the mountains are breathtaking and we fell so lucky with blue skies and a warm sun in November. The ceremony is heartwarming and we found it so emotional. Having to chance to say some special words to your other half during it was kindly thoughtful. Then the home cooked 3 course meal after was a belly buster and so tasty! Plenty of drinks. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the moment as it really was a beautiful experience we will never forget. We think you shld build a yurt/wigwam/Shepard hut, so we could have stayed all night ha thanks again Nicki and Mel

The hand fasting experience is a lovely romantic experience. Even with the covid drawbacks and the miserable rainy weather we were able to enjoy a cosy and romantic experience with some lovely cute touches and some funny stories from the hosts

Kacey and Jamie provide an amazing experience. Picked up from our accommodation and taken to their amazing location. Felt personal and they really looked after us. The ceremony was beautiful and was relaxed and fun. The food and drink provided was also brilliant. The atmosphere with the fire and the music was perfect.

This was one of the most unique and beautiful experiences I have ever had. It was incredibly romantic. There was so much more than I expected and I have never been part of something so beautiful and well thought out.
