Describe the best wedding that happened at The Manor House Hotel, County Durham?
We have so many fantastic weddings here it would be difficult to pick just one. Some of our most memorable weddings have been a Harry Potter wedding in the splendour of our Knights Hall, set as the Great Hall, a Vintage Tea Party in a tipi in our beautiful grounds with vintage china and hand-made bunting and a Victorian Gothic wedding with the Bride arriving in a hearse.
Everyone's dream wedding is unique and we work with each couple to make that dream a reality.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Pintrest is brilliant for finding new ideas and sharing with friends and family.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
One of my favourites has to be the memorial frames that some Brides have attached to their bouquet, so a loved one who is not able to be here in person is still able to be with the Bride as she walks down the aisle.
