Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We have had so many great weddings at The Falcon! Last year we had a fabulous wedding with 100 guests on three long tables - lots of wine and laughter and they danced the night away! We usually do weddings on New Years Eve too, and that always has such a brilliant atmosphere. We always try to get to know our couples, and since our wedding coordinators work the full day, celebrating with the whole family is a special thing to be part of. We also had a lovely wedding with a live saxophonist in the bandstand of the Garden and with the canapés and Prosecco flowing it felt like a brilliant way to start off the celebrations.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We had a wedding where the married name was to become "Mc...." and on every name place they changed the name of the guest to Mc too - so Smith became McSmith etc. It was a nice nod to the bride and groom and made everyone seem like part of the family!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
With a beautiful award winning garden, when the sun is shining the perfect photo spot can be found amongst the summer flowers under the weeping willow which can be seen in our pictures. In the colder months pictures of the happy couple in front of one of our fireplaces are just magical.
