Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
The best wedding that took place so far at the Engine Works is such a difficult question!
All of our weddings are amazing and I'm not just saying that. The aesthetic and ethos of The Engine Works is to tell a story and for our weddings it is the story of each couple - every single one is different.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Get involved and make it personal. Hire a stylist company to create your vision or enlist the help of friends and family to add some personal touches. That is what makes the day special and emulate your personality as a couple.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
My favourite personal touch was a back drop that the bride had designed and the groom created out of MDF. It was used for the ceremony and then for the speeches - I'm sure it now has another purpose in the couple's home.
