Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Amy & Chris' wedding was one of our bests. They put on such an amazing festival wedding and thought about every detail. It was so fun and colourful. They had a rock band outside playing brit pop hits and everyone had so much fun dancing. Rozzy & Tom's wedding was also incredible. The couple and guests spent most of the weekend barefoot and swimming in the lake. They really made of the most of every space and feature Colehayes has to offer.

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

Delegate as many tasks as possible. It is worth spending time organising tasks for people than trying to do everything yourself and you'll find so many friends and family actually want to pitch in which adds a fun camaraderie to your special day and the lead up.

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

We had one wedding which was a celebration of their families weddings through the ages. They put photos of past family weddings up all around the house, had a lovely family tree on display and even made confetti out of tiny pictures of family weddings.
