I've been to two weddings there and both have blown our socks off. It really is a stunning venue. The bend in the room isn't that noticeable, in fact, if you're sitting at one end, it means that you can see right through to the other end. And in any case, nobody at any wedding can ever see (or care) about the people at the far end of the room to them!!!
Loved the bar and the fact that it was such a cosy atmosphere - everybody just got their drinks and came right back into the room as that was where all the action was. Plus, anyone who wanted to have a quiet chat was able to head out to the bar for a little while - a nice additional touch to have.
I say go for it!
Time you have enjoyed wasting is not wasted time.
