Thank you for making it so special!
We just wanted to thank you for all the support and assistance for making our wedding day at Larchfield Estate amazing from start to finish. A special thanks to Cathy & Laura for all your support on the weekends running up too the wedding - you were always accommodating and supportive when we had any questions or concerns. Another massive thank you to Gary for his assistance on the wedding day. The day would not have ran so smoothly if we didn't have Gary there. From the moment we arrived, he was reassuring us of everything and making sure we were happy. We had so many compliments from guests and other vendors on Gary and his team at Larchfield, very accommodating throughout the day - even taking the photographer around the gardens and showing her the best spots for photos (5* service) Larchfield is a beautiful venue and our wedding day will be one to remember and cherish forever - thank you for making it so special!

Everything from start to finish has been absolutely perfect
Ian and I just wanted to send a quick message to say thank you so much. We had the most incredible day on Saturday, so many people mentioned how incredible the venue was and it was just perfect for a cosy winter wedding. Everything from start to finish has been absolutely perfect, including quick communication, super helpful advice, and lovely friendly staff. You have all been an absolute joy to work with. We feel incredibly lucky we got our first day and all our first choice suppliers. I’m sure you’ve all had a very stressful year with Covid, cancellations and frustrated couples, I hope you all have a very restful festive period, it's hugely deserved. A special shout out to Laura firstly, thanks for helping us fall in love with Larchfield, for being the only supplier we came into contact with who was as quick on emails as we were and for guiding us through the ever changing government Covid guidelines. Secondly to Philip, gosh I think Ian hugged Phillip more on the wedding day than me, it was true love. He was the perfect balance of organised but laid back, and was as in tune with the schedule as I was. He was also kind enough to drive guests to No.23, and we are so grateful. He was a huge part of why our day was such a huge success.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We are so lucky to have been able to help so many really lovely couples celebrate their wedding here at Larchfield Estate and love to see couples grinning from ear to ear as they say I do. From Emelie Sande singing at her friends wedding here, to circus skills greeting guests, hosting a wedding in deep snow (a freak storm, thank goodness for generators and snow ploughs!) to simple rustic flowers, home decorating the barn. It genuinely is a pleasure to live and work here and for our fantastic team to help each and every couple with their vision for their perfect day...

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

Go with your heart - and if set on a venue consider flexibility with dates, its the one day of your life you want to be just perfect! Oh and remember to take 10 minutes out just the two of you to say 'We're married' it's very surreal at the time!

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

A groom holding up a handmade sign saying 'Applause please' as he kissed his bride for the first time...
