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

Do you feel under pressure to make your day in the way that someone else wants? if so - tell everyone that the tips they give you are great! And if you don't like that idea - don't mention it again!

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

Paper flowers for the bridesmaids - using comic paper for a joker, maps for a traveller and sheet music for a musician! Loved it!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Secluded. Secret. Stunning. Elegant. Rustic

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The willow cathedral, the knot garden and the gate between the meadow and the cutting garden.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Not yet!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Little gem lettuce cups filled with a poached & smoked salmon and cream cheese mix with capers, pink peppers and dill. Yummy!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Smoked and roasted gammon sarnies with a sparkly slaw of savoy cabbage, carrot ribbons and purple onion - dressed with honey and mustard.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The hill-top 35m long willow 'cathedral' - a minute's gentle stroll through woodland glades to the gorgeous party barn with views of the paddock and meadow.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Planting and growing the 7000 trees - creating a woodland!
