Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
A fantastic couple hosted a Harry Potter wedding in our Great Hall! They had planned their day meticulously and the amount of detail was very impressive, they had thought of everything. Each guest had a personalised wand instead of a place card, and the table plan was a huge Marauders map, the list goes on! They even had a banquet style wedding breakfast, with long tables in each house colour.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Your wedding is about you as a couple! Don't feel you need to compromise on what you want to make your guests happy, they'll be delighted to be a part of your day regardless!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
The groom had his new step-son help make and decorate their wedding cake, without telling him what it was for! They only told their children on the day that they were getting married.
