I just really cannot put into words how amazing you all are, I just do not know how you do it!
Can I just say, you, Lewis and the team at Lainston truly made our day! We honestly could not thank you enough! What a magical day and place. We have already had endless compliments; not only on the beautiful venue, but also the extraordinary service, rooms, food and organisation. I didn't have to worry about anything the whole day! In fact, I already want to come back to stay! The Lainston team are amazing and made everyone (particularly myself and the bridal party the night before) feel very special indeed. A special thank you to Alex too who was absolutely brilliant from the moment he carried my (very heavy) dress upstairs to helping us pack very quickly because I got carried away speaking to our guests that morning. I just really cannot put into words how amazing you all are, I just do not know how you do it!

Everything was so seamless and we couldn’t have wished for better
We had the most wonderful day and everything went perfectly, even better than expected. The staff were fantastic, especially Malcolm who went above and beyond. Everything was so seamless and we couldn’t have wished for better. We’ve already been talking about our 1 year anniversary at Lainston so we can’t wait for that!!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have seen all sorts here at Lainston House, from Grooms arriving by Helicopter to fairground dodgems and carrousel's on the front oval!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

We will have loads to share with you along the way, but one I regularly give to our couples, is to start table plans as soon as possible, that way it doesn't become a stressful task later on and you can plan your tables and how many centre pieces you will need early on.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We once had a couple whose table themes were their favourite books, they had the book on each table and made confetti made from the pages from those books, such great attention to detail.
