Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

This is very hard! One couple had a really intimate wedding in the drawing room with just their closest family and a few friends and then after drinks and canapés the rest of the guests arrived, they gathered in the garden and one of their friends "married them" all over again with everyone there, so informal and very special.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
