FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

All the weddings at Folkington are special and unique, but the most perfect day is when the sun is shining. The bride and groom hold their ceremony in the beautiful little church in Folkington, then the guests walk down to the Manor through the grounds to a welcomed drinks reception on the front lawns. A reception then held in a marquee in our Deer Park is the icing on the cake, soaking up the beauty of the estate.

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

Remember it's your day! Do what makes you happy. Your guests will have a wonderful time seeing you happy and your personality shining through in the little touches you add. Whether it's a favourite colour, a favourite tipple or personal favours that reflect who you are.

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

A couple were going surfing for their honeymoon so had asked guests to write messages all over their boards they were taking with them, carrying those memories of their day with them every time they take their board in the water.
