Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Hand on heart we couldn't pick one, all the wedding receptions held at Deene Park had a uniqueness all their own, they are all exceptional occasions, although one particular winter reception will always spring to mind, the couple wanted a winter wonderland theme, the only thing we couldn't guarantee to deliver was real snow. Tongue in cheek we said we'd call in a favour, we couldn't believe it when we all woke to find the it had snowed overnight!
