Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We have had many great weddings, the one that sticks in my mind is the couple that chose to go off cue completely to the traditional food choice and went with curry & rice which turned out to be quite a talking point on the day with everyone being surprised and delighted with the unusual choice. The couple wanted it to be relaxed, informal and a family affair and it was just great to be part of such a laid back feel good wedding. The couple also enjoyed another family gathering the day following the wedding with a 3rd night add on to the venue hire and had their own mini-music festival.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Always visit a few 'different' kinds of venues to make sure you are really looking for what you want, and when you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach then you know its right for you.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We had a bride who was obsessed with Highland cows and unbeknown to the bride her mother had secretly arranged for a highland calf to be onsite after the ceremony. The happy couple went off to have some wedding pictures done and were totally shocked and surprised to see the calf, I can honestly say the look on the brides face was one of utter elation and was truly worth a thousand words.

We also include a 2 night hire of our glamping accommodation which means that friends and family can travel from far and wide and all get together the night before or the night after the wedding for a BBQ or just a chill out catch up time together.

Helping to create a wedding day that is relaxed, laid back and as stress free as possible and seeing happy faces throughout and after the wedding day.
