    Incredible Event Venue!

    Words can not express how beautiful and magical this venue is. It is a destination venue without travelling too far. In the center of the beautiful town of Picton, this enormous mansion has everything you need and more to plan the perfect event. The rooms are grogeous, the reception room is breathtaking, and the food is unbelievable. Michael gave us an incredible tour where we learned the history of the building and instantly fell in love. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone who does not want to get married in the city. Although really big, it has an incredibly intimate feel and the CAPE team will do anything they can to make sure your day is perfect! I can't wait to go back!

    The CAPE's reply:

    Hi Jessie and Valerie,

    Thank you so much for visiting the CAPE. WE are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Really looking forward to building a relationship with VOLOEvents.

    Cheers,

    Michael Potters
    Executive Director
