Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

With every wedding being different from each other, it is difficult to choose as they are all so unique! Every wedding is the best wedding!

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

We are the experts, we don't expect you to be experts. You make think you're asking a silly question but I can assure you that we've already been asked before. Your wedding is said to be the best day of your life, which means that planning the best day of your life should be fun and enjoyable!

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

We encourage couples to add personal touches around the venue as we believe that wedding days should be reflective of the couple getting married. Some of our favourite personal touches are personalised guest books and table names that are personal to the couple eg. Paris is the table name and that is where the couple got engaged, Danby is the table name and that is where to couple got married etc.
