Hello. We will be having an very small wedding ceremony at Soundside Park on Friday, 1 April at 2:00. We are hoping you can accommodate our party of 10 for a meal afterwards, possibly around 3:30 or 4:00. Is this something your establishment can help us out on? We would, of course, like to sit together with the bride & groom both at head of table and possibly if you have table cloths; just to make it semi-formal.
