Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
They're all lovely and different! The most unusual was probably the murder mystery wedding... roving actors and a crime to solve! A great way to entertain and join people. It was all themed with ghoulish, gothic props.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
You can't keep everyone happy all the time. Take everyone's views and advice on board but sift out what's just not for you. Relax, make lists, don't spend money on unnecessary things and remember - it's YOUR day!!

Pet dogs coming along with rings or just for photos!
