Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Every wedding is completely unique because many couple use Holdsworth House as their blank canvas. Outdoor weddings in the courtyard are especially pretty. Exclusive Use wedding are also fantastic because the couple and their families get to roam the grounds, rooms and gardens at will! But we also have lots of stunning, intimate weddings in the historic, stone Gazebo with just a few friends - it's utterly romantic.

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

Be sure to let your wedding coordinator take the strain. Wedding planning should be fun and we can help by advising on the best timings, numbers and how many to cater for to ensure all your guests are happy and you're not worrying about ANYTHING on the day!

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

We're a dog-friendly hotel so we love it when couples bring their pooches as ring bearers, or just to be part of the ceremony. We see some dogs wearing bow ties or corsages to match the wedding colours, it's fabulous!
