Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
A great Hindu/Ukrainian wedding that took place across two days. The first day was for the Hindu ceremony with all guests dressed in traditional wear and Indian sweets being served. It was a great experience for the team and to see so many bright colours through the day. The second day was a traditional English wedding with the most beautiful décor, lots of foliage and flowers and rustic elements. Seeing the couple across the two days and their guests all embrace the two cultures was just brilliant.
