Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
It would be difficult to just choose one moment, but it has to be the moment that our newly married couple walks back down the aisle after their ceremony with their loved ones!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Whilst planning only think about what you want, don't worry other people's opinions - it's your day.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
One of our most recent favourites is a couple arranged for every guests place card to have a hand drawn photo of them, next to their place card. It was so detailed and a perfect memento for the guests to take away with them to remember the day!
