Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
It might be cliche to say this but every wedding is a beautiful wedding. The weddings with just the Bride and Groom as so intimate and special, but larger weddings are full of fun and laughter, we do believe it is a privilege to be part of your day. During the pandemic, the micro weddings we held were different and unexpected; totally charming and very personal.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
My number 1 tip for couples would be to never be afraid to talk to your Wedding Coordinator. I always prefer my couples to talk to me and tell me about the things that are important to them, it may not be part of their package but it doesn't mean they can't have what they want. If I can do or provide what they want, I will do. So keep communicating and don't be afraid of being open.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
This is a difficult one, but I guess for me it would be the Christmas Crackers hand made with individual gifts tailored to the guests, they were stunning.....but then again the 2 person wedding where the Groom placed gifts for his Bride around the hotel for her to follow like a treasure hunt was just beautiful.....and then there was the Mother of the Bride who composed a comedy poem about the couple but mentioned every guest at the wedding in some way, something about how they knew the couple or about their personality. everybody was in stitches!!!
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Friendly, professional, modern traditional, spacious, personal
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Again so many to choose from.....any with guests laughing and having a great time, or a couple in love.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
What’s your favourite canapé?
OMG! pulled pork fritters with apple sauce are amazing......spring rolls with hoi sin sauce are yummy too...and then there are the strawberries dipped in chocolate. It would probably easier to say which I don't like, but I love them all!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
A simple bacon roll any day...just perfect for the end of the night.
What is your venue's most unique feature?
We have a stunning Victorian walled garden, woodland walkway and kitchen garden. But for me it is the stunning original carved wood panelling mixed with contemporary interior decorating. the best of both worlds!
