Spotlight on our venues: Pomegranate Orchard

Others have been attracted to tiny weddings as a way to honour their original date.  Or perhaps they just wish to be married already, damn it!  Still others have had to re-think their plans for big bash as losses due to a previous cancelation or their own new economic circumstances just don't allow it any longer.  Enter: The sequel...
