Describe the best wedding that happened at Harlaxton Manor?
All of the weddings we've had have been beautiful and unique in their own ways. Whether the couple chooses to go over the top with grand and extravagant decor or keeps things simple and elegant, it's always the happy smiles and joy on everyone's faces throughout the day that we love to see the most.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
It's your day! Always take the time to focus on yourself and your family during the day. It can be hard to remember to take a step back and soak it all in, but it's these calm moments spent focusing on yourselves and the magic and happiness of the day that you remember the most.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We love personal touches! They make a wedding special as they celebrate the love that the couple has not only for each other, but for their friends and family as well.
Here are a few of our favourite examples:
-Personalized photos of the couple with every person invited to the wedding at each guests place setting. The photos spanned the years of the couples lives and showed the role each guest played in the couples lives and the love the couple had for them.
-A couple highlighted their love for travel by having each table dedicated to a place that was important to them and their relationship...first date, first kiss, first trip together, where they got engaged, etc.
-Hand written notes from the bridal couple to each of their guests set at the place settings.
