Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
I wouldn't say it is the best wedding but definitely one of the most memorable was the 1st weddings after lockdown. We've had a lot of couples booked with us who have had to postpone once or twice sometimes more. The team here were reunited doing what we love which was emotional in itself. But seeing family all in one room being able to celebrate was really special. To be honest this feeling hasn't worn off yet, somehow lock down has made weddings even more emotional! We are so attached to these couples and have been on a huge journey with them to get to their wedding day, so seeing their dream day finally able to come to life has been real honour and highlight.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember it is your day, don't lose sight of this. Choose exactly what you both want and have the day just as how you want it. That way it will be perfect for you.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We had a wedding in the autumn where the groom chose the brides entry music, with our help and it was a surprise! Not sure I would have trusted my husband with that but it was beautiful. The bride was so moved by his choice, as were the guests.
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
We have quite a few! But my personal Favourite is by our beautiful stained glass window! It is simply stunning!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
We had a footballer, Steve Bull from Wolverhampton Wanderers. Before he came I had no idea who he was! He was so lovely and friendly, the bride organised it as a surprise for her husband! amazing. Their were quite a few fans amount the wedding guests too so everyone was thrilled!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
I think the flexibility, a lot of couple are surprised at how flexible we can be and also what is included (yes I know that's two!), we build every package from scratch with our couples wedding vision at the very centre. A greater proportion of local venues have quite fixed packages and offerings. We can change a majority of things available and have a very enthusiastic chef who loves making unique yummy food so can change our menus to suit you. By having a lot included that gives you more pennies to spend on other stuff!
What part of your business are you most proud of?
I've asked the owner Raj this one as I wondered what his thoughts were. This is what he said 'For me as the owner what makes me proud is seeing the pure joy and happiness happening around me at the hotel, being able to be the host some of the most important days of peoples lives is a real privilege. Seeing the hard work the team put in, paying off, making such special memories for people fills me with such pride.'
