Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
In July 2021, we had just come out of lockdown and there were still some restrictions in place. We had a lovely bride & groom who had an outdoor ceremony on the pavilion. Their drinks reception was also outside on the pavilion and the weather was just PERFECT. They had a Host & Sax for the drinks reception & wedding breakfast. Then later in the evening, they had a New York Brass Band roaming around. The whole event was mainly outside on the pavilion and it was like a big garden party.

Planning is vital! Use a wedding checklist and write due dates down. Also, make sure you book suppliers as soon as you’ve confirmed dates with your venue.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Flower Men!! This is where the groomsmen or best man have bum bags full of flower petals (as seen on TikTok). They did a little bit of a jokey dance while walking down the aisle throwing the flower petals.
