Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
During a drinks reception the whole wedding party stood amidst our manicured grounds posing for an aerial view photograph. When looking up at the photographer down dropped a pregnancy reveal surprising all of the party as well as the groom himself!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
When compiling your guest list prior to sending your invitations, I advise you use your list to make a rough table plan, then as guests confirm their attendance your table plan will come to life and almost arrange itself - saving you the worry closer to your day. Almost everyone leaves this until the last minute & it can turn into a nightmare with 'influencers' trying to change your plans!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
One couple grew a small succulent in a little pot for each guest. They attached the name tag to it so it doubled as their favour to take home. The Bride and Groom had taken so much care to grow them. They showed their love growing for each other through these small gifts and they were treasured by each of the attendees at the wedding.
