Describe the best wedding that happened at Elms Barn?
All our weddings are completely different and wonderful in their own way, how could I possibly choose one!
I find it is the personal touches that you end up remembering. Things like a personalised neon sign with the couples name or hand made cookies as favours.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
To get your venue and date booked as soon as you can, so that you can enjoy the whole experience of finding all your other suppliers of choice with plenty of time.
Regular contact with your Wedding Planner.
Don't let something play on your mind because you think it is too small to bother your planner with. No question or worry is too small or silly this is your big day!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
The Singing Waiters are a fabulous surprise, fun touch to any wedding - gets me every time!
I have also had a couple, both heavily tattooed, set up a temporary tattoo station a bit like a sweet cart and on it were personalised tattoos of the couples faces. Super fun touch and perfect for that couple.
