What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We held a humanist ceremony in October and the couple had their best friends stand up and read out the first few text messages that they'd sent each-other from when they were falling in love. It made us laugh and cry in equal measure.

Where’s the best photo spot at Chaucer Barn?
The topiary pyramids are unique in the gardening world and a huge draw for photographs. The Parkland looks amazing in summer with the tall grass-the sunset shots are phenomenal. I also love the Wild Flower Garden for some whimsical romance or the willow archways ...or the topiary. It's too hard to choose!
