Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We recently hosted a large family wedding with games and live music in the Secret Garden after the Wedding Breakfast. The evening guests were invited at 4pm so they could enjoy the fun & games. The competition on the Putting Green definitely brought out the competitive side of everyone!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Make the Planning Fun! Add a fun element every step of the way, for instance, if you have an appointment at the hotel to discuss your Wedding plans then why not enjoy a Cocktail or a delicious meal whilst here or if you're having a dress fitting, meet with your entourage for afternoon tea or bubbly afterwards.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
An Evening Reception photograph to remember - with all the guests outside once its dark holding with a lit sparkler. Easier to create than you think, just ask - we're experts!
