I am going over in October for a long weekend and I intend to book direct with the restaurants. The only thing I have been warned about is their pricing - if they think you are a push over they may try to rip you off. I have going to check out venues, prices, music, church, cake and hairdresser. One of my guests is a photographer. A friend of mine got married there 2 years ago, so she is giving me loads of help. I have emailed a wedding organiser, but have heard nothing as of yet.
I will let you know how I get on in October.
