Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
An extraordinary wedding based on a medieval-style banquet held at Christmas time, with long tables laden with a feast fit for royalty. All beneath the vast oak structure of Gildings Barn, illuminated by twinkling fairy lights. It was just spectacular and will be remembered for ever by everyone who experienced it. An incredible credit to the highly talented and artistic family members of the bride and groom.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Keep the decoration of the barns simple. They are stunning already, and are best complemented with country flowers or greenery and pretty bunting.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Wellington Boots (clean ones!) used as table centre pieces for the floristry decorations!
