Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We take pride in allowing couples to bring their ideas to life. We hosted a wedding that took place during a Leeds Vs Manchester game. The Bride and Groom walked into their wedding breakfast to 'Marching on together' with all their guests waving Leeds scarves in the air to welcome their arrival. It's a shame Leeds lost :/

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
We have two amazing photo spots that are a hit with our couples. Our first, is the famous confetti shot that takes place outside the main entrance of The Faversham. It's a great action shot to remember those first moment after saying 'I do'. Our second favourite photo spot is in our lounge. We have three tall windows situated at the front of the lounge. Couples love to take intimate shots here of just the two of them. These in intimate moments are ones to cherish on your wedding day.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
We have never had a celebrity guest at our venue, but if we were to have one we would love one of the team members from Leeds United Football club. How cool would that be!!
What’s your favourite canapé?
This is a hard one because they are all so delicious. The top favourite that is always a first pick when couples come to choose their canapes is the frittura di pesce. Salt and pepper fried prawns in a cone, great for a little bite to eat during your drinks reception.
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Here at The Faversham we have so many options for that late night treat while you're dancing the night away. You can choose from canapes, bowl food but our all time favourite is our Bears Pantry grazing table. The grazing tables create a real 'wow' factor and guests and couples have been blown away at how amazing the food looks. The grazing table is a selection of nibbles on a long table for guests to pick and choose from.
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Our most unique feature is the conservatory. This room can be used for your ceremony or if you have a small, intimate wedding breakfast this room is perfect for just that. With its living walls, original flooring and foliage hanging from the ceiling and fairy lights throughout the room, this room really stands out amongst the rest.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
We pride ourselves in allowing couples imaginations to run free when planning their wedding day. We like to be as flexible as possible to make every couples wedding day uniquely fitted to them.
