Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
That is such a difficult question as every single one of our weddings is special to us, but our current favourite has to be a beautiful intimate wedding celebration we hosted on 1st November 2020. This couple were devastatingly forced to postpone their wedding at incredibly short notice back in March 2020 when the national lockdown was announced, so when their big day FINALLY arrived it was one of pure happiness and celebration as they married in one of the most emotional ceremonies we've ever had the pleasure of hosting, surrounded by their very nearest and dearest. After such a rollercoaster ride of a year it meant the world to us to finally see them tie the knot and it was a day we will never forget!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Keep calm! We know sometimes it can be easier said then done, but we've seen so many couples almost ruin it for themselves because they have got so stressed about details that in the end don't matter. Remember to stay calm and try to enjoy the planning. Everything goes by so quick...enjoy it!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
The couple had a young son whose favourite movie was Toy Story. So as a beautiful nod to him, they walked back up the aisle to the featured song 'You've Got a Friend in Me'.
