Describe the best wedding that happened at Larkspur Lodge ?
It's always tough to single out a particular wedding. However we would have to shout out, Ross and Nicholas!
Just after covid, where we all hadn’t been able to show off our love – Ross and Nicholas got married. This was a small intimate wedding and there were many beautiful moments during the day. One of them being how Nicholas had published a book called ‘The 2 Bears’ all about their lovestory and the couple gave this out as a wedding favour to their guests. Nicholas is a professional dancer, and they shared a special moment by having their first dance under a sky full of fairy lights in our ceremony room.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Create a wedding email! Not just to help with planning in general but you can ask your wedding guests to send over their RSVPs to this too! When you have a ‘Wedmin’ day, you can open up your inbox and know all of your email are in one place! Often personal inboxes can get full of junk and it's easy for important wedding emails to get lost – Especially those all-important final details and payments.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
To make a table plan a little less formal, it is always lovely when you have a photograph of you and each guest, then as they turn it over it reveals where they are seated. Once the guests get to the table, there is a personal message written to each individual guest of memories they have shared together.
