What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Meet the venue's wedding coordinator in person. Always ask questions, spend the time to discuss your wedding plans and take away information so that you have a written record of what is discussed – Remember to take the organisers name, number so that you have a point of contact for the company. Take photos to remember cool ideas.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Is there something your partner is really passionate about? Try and incorporate it into the wedding in a small way; even better if you can pull it off as a surprise. We once had a wedding with mini cricket bats as table markers. We particularly loved this touch as Heacham Manor was once owned by the legendary Edrich family. Denis Compton is rumoured to have bowled to Bill Edrich on the manor's lawn.
