Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Having only joined the Dower House in August 2020, there's not many to pick from, but being able to move a couple's wedding from the 7th November to the 4th to squeeze it in before lockdown was fantastic for me, especially as it was my birthday on the 5th, so it was lovely to know we made that couple's special day able to go ahead with less than a week's notice of the change!!
