Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
The best weddings we have at Venachar were not just because of the beautiful weather, the amazing views or the lovely food. It was the sense of family, friends and happiness that made the days so unique. We like to get to know each couple personally so we can create the perfect wedding day for each individual couple.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Try your best not to get stressed over little things. Weddings are supposed to be the most relaxed and best day of your lives so enjoy every minute of it.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
It's really difficult to choose a favourite as there has been so many lovely things that people have added to their wedding to make it theirs. I think if I had to choose I would say when people find a way to include their pets in their wedding.
