Describe the best wedding that happened at Ashton Lodge Country House?
After so many postponements due to Covid-19, our favourite weddings are the ones that have had to wait patiently for their wedding day. A few have had to wait years from their original date and when they come around people are ready to celebrate.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Work out an initial budget (that is flexible) and determine the areas of your wedding that are most important to you, for example food and entertainment as these will likely be higher cost items. Remember that you are planning YOUR wedding and as much as you want your guests to have a fantastic day, be sure to include some special moments in the planning for yourselves!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We loved weddings so this is really hard to narrow down! We do love a memory wall of the couple, as we feel that we spend so much time looking after you, on the lead-up to your wedding, it is nice to see where it all began and to visually see their relationship blossom, in picture form!
