At Sault our couples are happily enjoying the use of the new chapel overlooking the lake. Guests can enjoy the views in air conditioned comfort and our brides have been extending their walk down the aisle, parking the wedding car at the top of the lavender field and walking down the path to the chapel, sure adds to the wow factor.
