Describe the best wedding that happened at Rowhill Grange Hotel & Utopia Spa?
Every single wedding we host here at Rowhill Grange has a uniqueness to it, the best ones are always those where the couple have added their own personality & personal touches to the big day! Whether that be via their song choices, personalised favours on the table, a theme throughout the day or a giant white bouncy castle on our outside lawn, those that are the most memorable are the ones with something that stands out!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
This day is about you two as a couple, everyone else is just a part of it!
Be organised yet flexible when it comes to your approach for the day, the ultimate goal of the day is to end up married & that will always be met, whether the seating plan took hours for someone to sit in the wrong space or if the weather just wasn't what you wanted you'll still end up married!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We love seeing a couple's personality shine through a wedding! Whether that be in the theming i.e. the table names - which I've seen named after destinations the couple have visited together, or in the place cards. My personal favourite was when a couple instead of place cards used a polaroid photo of themselves with each guest instead of their name.
