Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
The best weddings are always the most relaxed weddings. Harriet, William and their guest enjoyed the beautiful weather and setting in such warm and relaxed company. Everyone one was there to enjoy themselves and that's what counts.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy the process. It will all come together in the end so enjoy the planning process, and try not to stress or compare your ideas with others. Your wedding is meant to be about the two of you, and what the two of you love and enjoy, rather than worrying about the most recent trend or craze.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
A firm favourite has to be the time a bride snuck off for dhol drum lessons every Sunday for 6 months. They had booked dhol drummers to announce the two of them into the room for the evening party - a nod to his Indian heritage, and once they were on the dance floor, she surprised him (and all the guests) with a solo dhol drum performance.
