The perfect day!
People always tell you, no matter how organised you are with wedding planning something will go wrong on the day! That couldn’t be further from the truth. There isn’t one thing I would change about our day. If we could afford to get married every Saturday we would. I didn’t stop smiling the entire day. My face hurt for a week! Our vendors were incredible throughout the planning process and on the day; the venue (Larchfield Estate) was dreamy and our guests had an incredible time too!

We would just like to thank everyone at Larchfield for making our day so amazing!
We would just like to thank everyone at Larchfield for making our day so amazing! From our first day stepping onto the grounds, you made us feel so welcome, and on our wedding day we felt no different! Our guests felt the same, loving everything about the place! The facilities, accommodation, staff, are all brilliant and we couldn't have imagined our day anywhere else. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, hopefully we can come back some day for a little stay!

I loved every minute of the day in the most spectacular venue.
Thank you so much for everything you did for our wedding on 4th November. I loved every minute of the day in the most spectacular venue. I don’t think the wedding would have been the same anywhere else. The accommodation was also lovely, it was so nice to go back to the cottages after the wedding. My friends especially loved their after party in No.23 with the hot tub

This is a marvellous venue for a wedding reception.
This is a marvellous venue for a wedding reception. Staff are so helpful and kind, and the place itself is beautiful and historic . We were all extremely impressed. I would highly recommend Larchfield Estate. The immediate family stayed in the beautiful accommodation, which was a delight.

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...
