Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have hosted many beautiful weddings, but one of the most memorable was a 17 hour affair! It included a Sikh religious ceremony, a civil ceremony, a British modern wedding breakfast, and finally a curry buffet and bhangra disco. The colours, sounds and tastes were all amazing, and we were all pleasantly exhausted by the end of the day!

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

It is really important to have a showround with the team before making your booking, and to ask as many questions as possible. Let the team know if there is something that you have always dreamed of, so they can suggest the most suitable venue for you.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

One couple hand made models of scenes from popular movies, which they used as their table decorations, from Star Wars to My Neighbour Totoro. They were amazing and so creative.
