Describe the best wedding that happened at Brockholes Nature Reserve?
They're all my favourite! But I love a summer wedding with a barbecue and an outdoor drinks reception - everyone is relaxed and happy, drinking gin and tonics by the lake as the sun sets.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Prioritise what you book: choose what really matters to you and get that sorted nice and early. You'll feel so much more prepared knowing you've got your venue or photography sorted, or that you've made sure you've secured your perfect date.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Once, the Father of the Bride sang 'You are my Sunshine' during a ceremony... There was not a dry eye in the room!

Prince Harry joined us for a day and enjoyed his lunch in our den. Closer to home, Alison Hammond made bird-feeders at Brockholes during her tour of the UK!

After a night of dancing, our guests love tucking into a bacon or veggie sausage butty.
