Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We had a wonderful couple who installed a clear span marquee in the Tudor Courtyard where they dined under the stars. The theming was based on Midsummer Night's dream with a woodland touch. They had huge banqueting tables which we served simultaneously and the couple were made to feel like royalty. They also had a unique photo-booth in the Great Hall for guests to enjoy along with a decadent croquembouche to savor.

Don't get stressed! The process is all part of the experience and the venue planner is there to support and guide you along the way.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We've seen lots of lovely touches but our favorite two were when guests were given individually hand written thank you cards; whilst another couple gifted their guests a bespoke fragrance for everyone.
