Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Here at Buckminster, all of our weddings are completely individual and unique to the couple. One of our most memorable weddings was a festival theme which stands out as the colours of the wedding were so vivid. There were lots of bright decorations, from bunting and neon signage to large flower displays. The bridesmaids wore beautiful flowers crowns and the Bride and Groom wore personalised leather jackets during the evening. They had lots of catering options in the form of food vans with everything from pulled pork rolls & hot dogs, to sushi and pad thai and the music had the guests dancing all evening. At Buckminster, couples have the freedom to create their perfect day.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We love a personal wedding favour here at Buckminster and one that we have seen, and loved, was a bride who had a gorgeous bouquet of wild flowers, inspired by the fields in which her fiancé had proposed in. Their guests were given pouches of wild flower seeds as wedding favours, to plant in memory of their special day.
