Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
There are so many! I love all the ones that are a bit different! We had a couple who loved Jurassic Park so they had their table names named after dinosaurs and a Wedding Cake with baby Dinosaurs on! We also had a wedding that hired a bucking bronco for the lawns and watching the Bride ride that was so funny! We also had a couple who had a "first bounce" rather than a first dance as they had a bouncy castle and bounced to music!!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
I would say the two most important factors are getting the right venue for you and the right photographer! Don't be afraid to ask for things that are not in the typical brochure, any good wedding planner will go that extra mile to make the day yours!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
I love it when couples arrange for small touches to make their guests enjoy the day more, one example is putting pumps or flip flops by the dance floor for ladies to claim! It means even when their feet start to ache in heels they can pop on some flats and carry on dancing! Also some Brides have made little boxes of "essentials" to put in the toilets that include things like hair spray, deodorant, plasters, paracetamol etc!
