What is your most memorable wedding?
One of my most memorable weddings was in 2018, during the storm "Beast from the east" at Orchardleigh Estate in Frome. I woke up on the morning of the wedding to find myself snowed in, I put on the news to find the Groom on the local news asking for help to get him to the wedding. A few 4x4's and a epic snow journey later the wedding went a head.
