What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We encourage couples to add personal touches around the venue as we believe that wedding days should be reflective of the couple getting married.

Paris is the table name and that is where the couple got engaged, Danby is the table name and that is where to couple got married etc.
