Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
All our wedding are special and unique, but one of our first weddings was a Japanese themed wedding. The couple had met whilst working as teachers in Japan. The bride made origami centerpieces and as a surprise guests flew in from Japan to surprise the Bride! She couldn't believe that along with the Groom we had managed to keep the additional rooms, table settings and meals a surprise. Another memorable time was a baby and gender reveal after the ceremony on our large projector screen, lots of tears and celebrations followed after the couple announced their news to their guests. One of our couples also arrived via boat straight onto our Moorings and in for the ceremony!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Always do what is right for you as an individual couple. Try to think about the location for your photographs, the wonderful food people will remember, the little special touches for your guests like a boat trip that make your day unique to you.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
There is just so many! They range from handmade chocolates the brides grandfather used to make every Christmas as favors, to the groom himself making the wedding cake as a surprise for his wife to be (he was a baker!). The list is endless of fantastic ways to personalise your day.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Definitely directly on our bank to the Oulton Broads. We reserve a large photo area specifically for your big day with a completely unspoilt view of the Broads as your backdrop. The sunset is a MUST have image if your quick enough! Most of our couples also cross the wooden footbridge to the park next to us (approx 5 minute walk) for some lovely photos in the bandstand or on the Jetty.
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Our breathtaking View. It really does need to be seen to be believed. The panoramic view across the broads is unspoilt and the sunsets are incredible.
