    - Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
    All the weddings held at our venue are as unique and individual as the wedding couples themselves. I could not possibly offend anyone by picking a 'best' wedding! There all fabulous in their own way!
    - What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
    This is your wedding! Do what YOU love. Invite the people you want. Dance to the songs that bring you most joy. Eat the best food. Enjoy all moments. Share the photographs with your children and grandchildren. Most of all spend the rest of your days with the person you love!
    - What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
    Every single wedding has personal touches that are individual to them and their relationship and I love to see the individuality of each wedding that happens here at Kent Life. To ensure I don't forget these personal touches I always take lots and lots of photographs which I like to twitter about!
